For those that do not know me I am an die hard Halo fan. When I am not playing Medieval 2, WiC, or Halo 3 I am working on my mod, Broken Arrow, which will be the first vietnam era RTS game ever created, so on behalf of the team I would like to say we are really excited. :) If you would like to join the mod please contact me at my email above or by PM.

dud_doodoo May 16 2013, 11:22am says:

I would take things a step further than mere separation of units between Marines and ODSTs. Helljumpers are special forces, so it would make no sense for the player to use Marines early in the game and then switch production to ODSTs once he unlocks the prerequisite technologies. (which is what happens in nearly all RTS games, the player will stop producing the inferior unit if an all around better one becomes available) I also think that producing them at a barracks doesn't put enough emphasis on the fact that their job is to drop from orbit. My suggestion would be to not make them available at the barracks at all, but after a simple tech upgrade you can call them down as a special ability. Of course this ability would have a fast recharge rate so while they aren't going to be your main infantry force (the main body of your infantry being ODSTs would be ridiculous, which is what would happen) they will still make up a significant part of it. Personally I think they should be given battle rifles with maybe one shotgun in the squad.

The warthog variants should be separate units. The LAAG (chaingun) should be most effective against infantry while the rocket hog should be more effective against vehicles and aircraft. The rocket hog should be more expensive, and later in the game you could upgrade it to a gauss. The gauss should be all around better than the rocket hog but still not quite as effective against infantry as the LAAG, while coming at a much higher price. This ensures that the player still has some incentive to build the lAAG later in the game. The APC hog from Halo 3 would also be interesting to include.

Criticism is important for all artistic, professional, and recreational works. While it is essential that we show modders our appreciation and support through positive feedback, criticism is constructive and grants them a new perspective from their fan base. Should they choose to consider it, these opinions (if reasonable and educated, not impolite or insulting) can help them improve their work. If I didn't support this mod I wouldn't care to give an opinion. Giving negative feedback for a particular item in no way implies that I don't like the mod. I point out issues about my country all the time, but moving is not the next logical option. If the developers didn't give a **** about the fanbase then this mod would not be on moddb. Your comments would be equally as unimportant. Of course it is their mod. I'm not telling them what to do, simply offering my opinion, and I will continue to supply my honest opinion for a mod I follow and support. It's up to them if they want to consider it or not.

I should ALSO mention that typing with CAPS LOCK ON does NOT add any substance to your post. It ACTUALLY just makes you look like a ******** who CAN'T MAKE A POINT WITHOUT IT.

dud_doodoo Dec 20 2012, 10:14pm replied:

I've examined the picture thoroughly, and I admire the time and effort the modeller put into this. The UNSC arsenal is surprisingly conventional for a series taking place 500 years into the future. This was intentional, a deliberate point in the design of Halo: that weapons and vehicles of the UNSC mimic a modern arsenal. Bungie wanted them to feel like humanity as we know it. Jeeps, tanks, dropships, fighters, automatic rifles, burst rifles, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, shotguns, etc. Sure there were a few departures from this at one time or another. The spartan laser for example: a futuristic weapon that fills the familiar role of anti vehicle. A mech has no combat role that couldn't be better filled with another existing vehicle. It is an outlandish concept that exists for no other purpose than to look cool. I have nothing against mechs, but they are out of place in the UNSC and do not belong in Halo. If you disagree you're welcome to make your point, but don't respond to criticism by calling me dumb and saying it's awesome.

You've always been adamantly opposed to the design but in all honesty I don't mind the Reach variant at all...cannons that big are clearly meant for ship to ship combat. Archers can be destroyed by point defense and it's unrealistic to rely on the MAC for all heavy fighting, especially if you're up against numerous smaller ships.

dud_doodoo Feb 17 2011, 4:37pm replied:

The Halo 2 scarab is different than the Halo 3 scarab. The Halo 2 scarab was a mining vehicle that was piloted by a crew (scarab was disabled by killing the crew) while the Halo 3 scarab was designed for combat, and if you noticed, it still operated perfectly after you killed everyone on board. That isn't to say it isn't mechanical at all, the outer shell is obviously a machine that is more or less driven by the worm colony within, much like the MJOLNIR armor was a mechanical extension of a spartan's body.

dud_doodoo Feb 17 2011, 2:53pm says:

I'd also like to point out an interesting fact:

Scarabs are less like a vehicle and more like a power suit. Basically, they are hunters wearing different armor. Since a hunter is a colony of worms, they can work together to take other shapes, such as a scarab. Remember the soft spot in the back in Halo 3? If you looked closely you would have noticed it was the same texture as the soft spots on a hunter.

Anyways, it looks good so far. Looking forward to seeing it in game.
