Don't worry about it.
Man, there are so many mods that I want to help out on. It sucks being a mediocre modder(the only thing I can competently handle is small texture, model edits and Bethesda games like Skyrim and Fallout). Maybe wherever I go to college there will be some kind of class that I can take on the side to improve skills, so I can help out with things like this in my free time.
First Strike was amazing! It's my favorite Halo book besides Fall of Reach. I was really hoping to see the epic space battle over Reach in the game version, but was very sadly disappointed. My Xbox would catastrophically explode if 300 Covenant ships came out of slipspace over Reach to face the "Big Sticks" and huge UNSC fleet...
Well I hope that'll work! But something tells me your going to need to do something clever to take them down rather than just brute strength. Maybe the UNSC equivalent of a turbo laser will do some work on them? A Scarab shouldn't be taken lightly in any situation though.
Oh great, I'll have to deal with Scarabs... Speaking of that, the UNSC needs something to counter the Scarab. If MAC rounds are nearly instantaneous they could take it down easily, but what if you have no MAC rounds? Just thinking of the balance issues here.
They did that in Halo Wars, I have to admit that it's pretty cool. When Spartans are close to there victims they also do some cool stuff, like an assassination in Halo Reach.
So tanks can fire shells at aircraft? Halo Wars made it to where only the machine gun will fire at aircraft that are hovering still in the air, easy targets for shells. Although I'm glad if you are making it to where they can fire shells at aircraft, there will probably be some serious balance issues. I guess that's where scarabs come in, right? Although, tanks beat ghosts. Tanks beat hunters. Tanks beat everything!
They can't shoot at aircraft can they?
First thing I'm doin land wise is making an army of swift pig death!
That is my least favorite level in the entire series... Have you by chance ever read The Mona Lisa in Halo Legends? One of the best short stories I've ever read. Although there is another story in there called Dirt that is pretty amazing too.
As long as the MA5B (assault rifle) sounds similar and there aren't armor abilities, I'm fine.
This may have been answered, but quite honestly I don't want to look. How are Spartans being handled? Just a few Spartan IIs that can be built, or like twenty Spartan IIIs at a time? Or just no Spartans at all? No Spartans would make sense because of their low numbers, but that wouldn't be very fun would it?
I'm sure this has been asked plenty of times before, but I couldn't find the answer. Can you give us an ETA on the ground beta? I'm absolutely drooling over the thought of playing this.
The Rebel heavy tank can switch between lasers and missiles, can it not?
Although I like the cobra as well, the UNSC lacks a bit in antiarmor.
I'm pretty sure scarabs drop from orbit, like ODSTs.
As long as it helps get the ground beta out faster, I approve completely.
Shoot for the hole! Then double tap him in the head.
I love the look of the HE Halo 1 pistol in an ODST's hand. But what's up with the non-shouldered rifle? He's like "Check out this shiny new gun!"
I'll bet two of these fellas can take down an entire UNSC marine squad.
Can't wait to see the next update! It's been a while.
Map markers would be nice!
Can't do crap about Longswords, can you Hunters?
The new hud looks 10 times better than the old one, and I can't wait for new maps!
Why is it the bad guys ALWAYS have the super weapons?
I've got a problem with no AI. They don't do anything.
Disregard that last post, I just started it up as the administrator and it worked. Now about the level, I have two questions. Can you get in the tank and can you kill the scarab (I just drove past it)?
I'm trying to try it out, but I've had no luck. I replaced a30.map with the one in D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo\MAPS but when I choose the level to play ("Halo") it is the normal mission. This is strange and seemingly impossible because I just completely replaced that file. I have Windows 7 64bit by the way.
Too hardcore? Needs more balance in your favor? Really hard? Nearly impossible? Sounds great to me!
I don't know about you, but playing this mod on the day before the world might end is on the bottom of the list of things to do that day. I'll play if it's THREE days before though.
Thank goodness, I really don't like brutes...
I'm assuming we'll get a space alpha/beta/demo this Christmas or something?
Praise Jesus, this ship is basically the answer to all of the UNSC's problems, as it should be. Covies better focus this thing hard if they're going to have a chance.
I'm no fan of fan-made ships, but I like the purpose, look, and feel behind this thing. The Tau'ri really need a ship for heavy weight fights.
Can't wait make a bunch of Warthogs and crush the opposition! With all of these variants, their is a Warthog for everything!
Are these going to be on a special map we can play? Kind of like the Christmas version of Crash on Call of Duty 4.
Do I spy a flying ghost in that picture?
Best looking update yet!!!
There are a ton of missing animations/coding and whatnot.
