Aw, awwww come on...
Nice background too ;)
Yeah, I'm probably going to tweak the front a little, probably not going to keep that fin inside the 'maw'.
NEVER! I mean, heh, no, were sticking to the original (Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3 ring)
I'm thinking about making the antenna more oblique and perhaps reducing it a little although I know that modern stealthed faces on aircraft can be smoother, it depends on the material. It will be mostly black and I can make it so you'll have to move the camera close to it in order to attack it.
As far as it being too wide, I'll admit that it does look better at some angles more then others, but I'm not sure which extant ship to compare it too, the one known oblique, angular faced ship being the Longsword is more horizontally oriented then vertically, also the F117 is also more horizontally shaped as most aircraft are now. The ship is actually really thin and sleek, from the front it would be like a knife or arrowhead. I wanted it to be a class all its own even when relying on known ship design elements. I wouldn't do justice to the Prowler design if I just combined a Longsword with a frigate.
Yes, white nebula puffs will function as clouds within the planet's atmosphere, I hadn't tested this out before my hard drive failed, but I believe the effect will turn out nicely when I do get around to adding it in.
We don't want maps that are millions of KM in diameter because they would overwhelm the player, even a large planet in all that space could become lost, along with the entirety of your fleet. All this extra space would not be utilized in game either.
Making large maps is easy, making appropriately sized maps is a good deal more difficult.
We may consider it, however we would only need a relatively small area of the planet with realistic terrain. If it's possible to adjust the resolution of the model, then it would definitely be a valuable tool for generating these terrain sections.
It doesn't need to be shown in super detail for it to look good in HW2.
Yes, it's a very doable thing. Unlike the final mission of HW2, you will be able to physically fly down to the surface of the planet, over the city (or any other structure), and shoot plasma and energy projectors all over the place.
Fortunately we provided our explanation in the update, before you asked this question.
Maybe the missile racks could be integrated onto the front? I think they look kind of awkward sticking out out the sides like that.
If those are water tanks, could you make them a little bit rusty?
very nice models
Just dont do what Halogem did, for crying out loud they made a box for the game, which implies they were going to market it, or make it a marketable option, which microsoft could have taken advantage of by themselves aka Halo Wars
if u guys want to get thios mod look to teh right of this page there is a link that says tefnor.com and it will take u to his homepage where all teh trails are,,,
just thought id let you know
Wave after wave of Cardassian, exploding.
Well, it does have to look different somehow, the lower boom is basically just one big tower with a gun on it, this particular assault frigate doesn't have a lower cargo bay section. Ignore the bridge though, it's basically going to look just like the one on the other frigate (I just quickly sketched that area without much though because I already had it modeled and textured)
I did want it to look really similar to the frigate in some areas though, in fact the engines are identical to the classic frigates, as well as the bridge, two areas of the ship that I don't think would vary much among frigate classes.
Thanks, I'm getting close!
Thanks! Might tweak around the inner 'maw' section a bit.
Hola, gonna update soon.
Heh, pretty sure that's not how you handle a plasma sword.
and I've seen many swords in my time.
I can't help but think of that pretty-as-could be Jamaican girl in the commercials.
Perfect 1:1 scale, I have an older version earlier in the images section, less detailed but also scaled correctly.
Thrusters, yeah. They do look like something that would be used in atmosphere with the large grating/vent appearance.
Lets all try and keep in mind whose in charge here. Not me, lol
Lol, good lord...
I can finally build my swimming pool and orbital diving board.
Going out of town for a few days, hopefully I'll have the textured Prowler complete soon, as well as some corvette progress shots.
Is there a way to have this mod AND Shaders Max 1.01?
How do you get sh ships to fly around like this?
Ayeeee, so does this incorporate many of the same chops that were in the 2011 mod before it was DEACTIVATED?
I would surely hope so...
Quite a lot, I'm on the 250th+ save of the model.
It survived, and I'm working on upping the detail on it.
She's still got a few surprises left in her.
Hey, enjoy the model! Please try and find out how to alter lighting conditions and shaders on these maps.
Thanks! I'm really looking forward to having some space-ground battles.
Yes, the balance struck between UNSC and Covenant will be largely an economic/build time one however the Covenant will always have an advantage true to the Halo universe (recommended for less experienced players).
Hey all, I'm going out of town this week so bear with me.
I'll try to get some concept pieces done.
We chose to distance ourselves from Halo Legends/343 as much as possible.
Halo Nation is a poor source of information, most editors add and retract information on the merits of how cool it sounds. It's a place where misinformation compounds on itself until it becomes solidified fanon. Frankly it seems like most of the frequent adherents of the site would much prefer Halo Legends and Halo Wars over Halo CE and the Nylund books, and that's bad news for us.
Besides, this thing look far more ablative then that Red Horse ship in the article you linked (also closer to the F-117 fighter), and it's clearly less armed based on its stats. I'm not sure how this thin, unsubstantial ship looks anything but lightly armored, and I don't recall where the Prowler was ever described as a slow ship. In what ways does it look nothing like how you describe it?
This is the only other known official image of a Prowler:
I do hope I'm not also obliged to retain its design as well.
Hmm, I don't know about it.
