I love this site as it's so complete. All my favorite mods near each other.
From what I read here, I understand that you're making this mod all by yourself. From one person who does that to another, I know what a pain it can be. Just remember that you're doing this gigantic task all by yourself and that's amazing. It is extremely hard to do; especially when such events happen in your personal life. Also, as long as people don't offer to help out, they have no right to bitch about things being slow. I look forward to your next update :)

You never ask a girl about her age or her size :P
I feel its still a bit too tall, or perhaps just to short. Nevertheless, I do really like her, and I can't wait to have her as a flagship in battle.
CanadaMan, Annihilater, you both have done an excellent job with her!
This one's the nicest I think :)
I'm very happy to hear that this project has gotten a second start. I wish you all the best and will be following it closely. I hope you find the staff you need.
No, I had more comments about that. But like I said, I kinda like it this way. I might change it, but I'm not sure yet.
Hmmm, that might not be such a bad idea ... A new texture, some tweaking of the model ... Hmmm
Well, this was modeled after a piece of concept art by Bungie artists. Here; its the top model without the hole in the neck.
Does this mean we will also be seeing the Covenant Corvette? :D
Hmmm. I'm still not sure if I like it. Perhaps I need to look at it ingame.
I love it, especially all the details but isn't the main color a little bit too green?
No, no others, just the one.
Aaaw be nice to her, I quite like her thank you very much. Besides, if you have a better idea, I'd like to SEE it.
Look at the last ship in the line-up :P
They stole it. Its a rather old carrier model though. At that time there already were several heavier models already.
Cool ^^ Thanks, that's always nice to hear.
Way too detailed? :/ You want me to do crappier work? What kind of comment is that?
I definatly like that :P
Says who? Just cause they don't mention them doesn't mean they don't exist. And what about the UNSC Hopeful? I think, especially during the war with the Covenant, these ships would be really useful.
These are from Origins aren't they? I recognize them. My advice is like what's already been said, give them a lighter grey skin. But also, I'd change the gun part on these to make them a bit longer and bigger.
It is indeed great news that you guys found a texturer. His work looks very promising.
And yes, its annoying when people don't read updates. I like following a mod team's development.
I've decided to make this model either way. If I can see the model I can make a copy of the original and change it around a little and then decide what to do with it.
Its the map Release.
You might want to post a new picture of this ship. Is it the same as CanadaMan's though? Cause then we've already seen it of course.
Though everything looks good, I do suggest using a couple of different textures for the landscape. Especially behing the plane so it has more of a path where it crashed. It looks like it dropped dead from the sky now. Everything else looks great though!!!
She looks great. I especially like the refitted version.
What are those two ships next to the supercarriers? I've never seen those before.
Nah, this is either Klingon or Romulan. No way it could be Covenant.
Love it completely!
Well, if you need any help with modeling, let me know.
Lame, so what do you still have left besides the new ships?
Very very cool, just one small thing, why was Ringleader removed from the team exactly and why aren't you allowed to use his designs anymore? That seems rather harsh.
Cool, can I ask if any of the models I gave you are in already? I still haven't seen 'em yet.
Not that. I know the Marathon model itself from back to front. I'm talking about at the left of it from its perspective.
Its the Insurrectionist logo.
Yes, that's what you think it looks like. But so far, there has never been an image from Bungie of this station. So I just go with this. Its what came close to the description we got from the books. "Two squids kissing."
These units will soon be released in the old style. However, to tease you all we decided on doing this first :P
This is in space.
Yeah, I do mean H:HF. I always do that wrong :P Too many abbreviations that look alike. H:FO, H:FC, H:HF. Thank god for CaW :P
From the description section:
Note: I know an art piece was released not too long ago where it says this is a Destroyer. I always felt it was more of an old carrier model. So I'm sticking with it.
The texture is alright, but I still feel the model isn't UNSC-like enough.
It might be because I can't fully see the model and its details, but I don't think I like this model. It doesn't really look UNSC to me.
No, not neccesarily. Halopedia says this about the Phoenix class Colony ship: ""The Phoenix-class is 2.5 km long, making it one of the largest known UNSC ships in the organization's naval history"" The reason they probably say this is because we do not know what size some ships are, including the size of the Supercarrier. The way they speak of the Supercarrier in the books makes it sound like thé biggest ship of the UNSC.
Its just going to be a background model. It will do nothing. And I posted it with a rebel background because I post UNSC with a UNSC background, Covenant with a Covenant background and every other model with the rebels.
Its an amazing video. You're doing so much honor to the series. Keep up the briliant work.
I have one small suggestion; remove that part at the end of the Marathon's engine. The Halo 2 version uses those polygons for the engine glow. So it's not part of the Marathon model. You also might wanna double check if it's not a Halo 2 copy btw. Wouldn't wanna get into legal trouble do you? I know I wouldn't want that for you. We do not need another Halogen kind of thing.
I can't really see the model due to the texture. Nice to see some work though.
That's because I recreated that model. It was a cool design, but a rubbish Cruiser. So I made it my prowler :P
Apparently you're not the only one :P But that'll change once the Alpha layer is adjusted.
I'm not sure yet. I do want to stick with canon things, but I also want it in.
If you'd read the main page and summary you'll see that I work with Halo: First Offensive. On top of that, I modelled that Firefly class Carrier myself. Therefor there's no need to give credit.
What shadow problem does he have? Anyway, one hint, make sure your textures are 24 bits/pixel instead of 32. It worked with me for my Nexus mod.
Love your Flagship model and mostly texture!!! It's really Halo 3 like.
Those models are only used as a way of presentation. Only the ship model is going to be ingame.
It's a briefing about the vessel in a UNSC warroom.
Nice job indeed. I know out of personal experience how hard this ship can be.
It can't be walkways if you look at the ones near the bridge.
I still don't like the pipes/cables (it's not logical as that'd make the ship vulnerable) but otherwise a good ship. Nice details.
The model looks good but she needs a retexture.
It seems a bit out of proportion. The model itself is good though. And I wish you best of luck on animating it! That's supposed to be a real tough job.
The design looks familiar.
I don't like it. As an architect student I can't see how it says UNSC. With the roundings it rather says Covenant. You should look closer to the buildings of Halo Wars. There you can clearly see what says UNSC.
The story sounds a bit dodgy. But the models look nice. Much progress seems to be made. I might keep this mod in eye sight.
First; It's nice to see a gundam mod, however it's Chang Wu Fei. Also I'm not going to download this mod if the Peacemillion is going to be left out.
Hahaha, yeah. Who hasn't tried that?! XD
Do you mean the dark trading station in the back or the light grey things? The light grey things are part of the Forerunner Dreadnought.
Actually the ODP is exactly the right size. What you forget is that a Frigate was docked to it in Halo 2, so what I simply did was make the ODP then scaled it so it was capable of having a Frigate between its Umbilicals. Also the Halcyon and Spirit of Fire's sizes are known so the rest is rather easy to determine.
As for designing them like the Halcyon, I'm designing them in the UNSC style, so they are like the Halcyon and Marathon, which are a lot like each other. So yeah, they do look a like a little, but most ships have big differences.
I'm going to rebuild this and then change it into that.
Wait, what? Gameplay? This has a release?! When did that happen? *runs off to search for download*
Thanks Halocaptain, I know of the site, but the site isn't very helpful for this mod. Still, thanks for the tip :) A releasedate for this mod? Really hard to say. Right now I'm making great progress, but there are always ups and downs and with me working alone on this project, I really can't say when the first version will be released. You could still buy Nexus already though, its a great game if you like space combat.
The ship looks cool, I think that perhaps the house color is present a little too much. If its always blue its okay, but if you were red I think it'd look too much and too weird.
I might change it, but I quite like it. And yes, the design you're reffering to is a lot better, but they're not using that anymore.
It will be included, it just hasn't been made yet. As I put in the description; 5 more to go.
What kind of small-minded outcry is that Webzlinger? Besides, minus the Atlas, I really like the concepts. I'll be looking forward to seeing them modeled.
Nothing :P its a campaign prop :P
What is FLCE? :P
One is a refit; armed and armored for war, the other an original colony ship; significantly less strong.
A colony is a city, and a colony class ship was carrying materials to set up a colony, so a colony class ship was large enough to carry a city and its people with it. That's a lot. A lot more then a division of marines, vehicles, fighters and pelicans and all. Remember that the Pillar was already carrying quite a lot of personel and material and that ship was only 1.17km long. But we can't know for sure what size a supercarrier is unless Bungie tells us really.
After Halogen got shut down, it hit morale hard for all Halo modders. Fortunatly some survived (like me). I just hope that this won't spark such a same case because if one mod were to get shut down, either more would be shut down or would fall apart from people fearing being shut down.
What you see here is the little progress that I've made in texturing :P I'm not good at it, but I try to improve myself. As soon as I have all models done I'll digg a little deeper into texturing and eventually I'll redo all models. This is, however, probably how they're all going to be in the first release.
It looks amazing. It really does. I don't know what else to say :P
I'll mostly stick to the books, then add some of my own things in to fill in the blanks.
I'll just be using that as a base, I'll be recreating it and changing it heavily so that it's more like the real Phoenix class colony ship bridge.
I'm just gonna use this as a base, I'll be making the entire thing from scratch but just wanted to show that I'll be using this as its base. I love the window area of this bridge.
Your ideas sound really cool. I can't wait to see it completely. :) One thing though, is the Pelican just for the show? Or will it actually have a function?
Is it possible to have multiple carriers at a time??
I just came back to say that I absolutely LOVE the planet's texture. You guys did one hell of a job!! Emberblaque, you're a master!
Soviet power supreme.
If my windows were that cracked, I'd just bust them all together and get new ones :P But nice effect.
Nice to hear that ^_^ Be sure to follow my own mod then :P Halo: Fleet Command
I've just reuploaded it. Hopefully this 'll cause it to work now.
Hmm, I think its a bit much perhaps.
Hey Aliah, did you ever get my mail?
These do look good, but I look out not to give all Allied vehicles huge tire or tracks.
The ship above the Halcyon is a Halcyon refit into a new class, however, I'm going to change it more after the first release. Right now its done too basicly. The ship below the Halcyon is its predecessor, the Jefferson class Cruiser.
I absolutely love it! You guys are showing great promise!
I'm not really sure. I can't put my finger on it. Perhaps it just looks too much like a smooth Longsword. I just don't like it I suppose.
I'm not sure if I like it. It doesn't really have a Covenant feel to it in my mind.
Is this your or DinosaurJR's model and texture?
There are people who don't know that? But its so logical? Hmmm, perhaps that's just me.
I still don't like this model. It just doesn't make sense to me. I prefer Genesis' model over this.
Oh no, not at all. Just look at the Frigate. It has dozens of details and is nothing near just a box. Even the Marathon and Halcyon aren't just boxes. Both have a lot of details and distinct shapes.
Meh, like I said over at CaW, I don't like it. It doesn't have a UNSC feel to it. To me its just a flat box with guns on it.
I don't know where you get that from but there's never been said anything about its look. Besides, the Halcyon and Marathon both look rather different.
Wow, those are awesome. I love them.
That wouldn't make sense. The station itself doesn't drill. But the model will be adjusted.
It looks f*cking brilliant!
I never really liked Blamtroid's model for it. That is too bulky. Hold the original picture next to either of these models and then see which one looks best.
Mind you though, this is the non-refit version. The Spirit of Fire was a refitted version and I made those models to be different from each other. Non-refit has 3 engines while refitted only has 1. Such small things.
I think it'd be a lot better if the driver was an Elite. A grunt wouldn't even be really able to fit. It's made for Elites and fits great for humans too.
Wasn't the Athena Carrier (or just the third from the left) a latest model? I thought it was much bigger then every other ship they had. I saw it as their Flagship. Anyways, that could just be me.
It looks good but the grey texture part needs to be changed a little. I never liked Sketch up at all.
That's my design again :S.
I'll find some time to make some drawings and post them on the forums.
This thing is just plain awesome! I love the texture. It looks great.
The Mac station is indeed cool so cuddos to the one that made it. Stop saying that those models are ripped. It's offensive and though I'm not even related to the mod team I seriously doubt those models are ripped. If you have proof come back again.
I don't really like the design. It's too Forerunner like. I expected something more human and boxlike.
