That's fine. The Atlas would be cool, but it isn't anywhere near a "must-have". Your mod is pretty great regardless of BattleMech content.
The Cybrans should probably get this. If you wouldn't mind making more BattleMechs, I would suggest the Atlas for the UEF: Sarna.net
Missile packs and main cannon. The positions of the rest of the weapon choices don't seem believable. I wouldn't say no to a tank with a single coaxial autocannon and the missile packs though.
If the AI can use it, #2 would be the best. If the AI can't figure it out, you'll have to go with #3 and probably nerf those spinal weapons to not insta-kill stuff.
If the UTF Apollo is the exact same vessel as the GTF Apollo, I would suggest changing that. Nothing kills a total conversion like having identical ships to vanilla FreeSpace.
Nope, you're right, this was used in Blue Planet: War in Heaven as the GTF Atalanta.
Have you considered working with MatthTheGeek on his HW: Blue Planet mod?
I'd go with option B, for something new and fresh for World in Conflict.
Helge, you misspelled "tongue" every time you typed it up there.
Arbites are better armed and armored than the Imperial Guard. Carapace is standard gear when anticipating trouble, and shotguns and bolters are commonly-used weapons.
The Ar'ka was a one-of-a-kind structure the Tau had in their stronghold in Soulstorm. It was a souped-up ion cannon that bombarded other provinces in the campaign metamap.
Any chance you could add a research that upgrades the Vulcans to Rapiers?
C: Bottom Middle. It looks like it will be able to handle any mix of ground units that comes its way with a minimum of downtime between firing cycles.
He must be Duke Nukem.
It wouldn't be legal anyways. Games Workshop does not allow the mixing of their IP (Battlefleet Gothic, Warhammer 40,000) with any other IP.
Are you going to keep the standard EaW hardpoint and damage system where a few bombers can ruin an entire Star Destroyer with only a few bombing runs?
This is why you don't mess with a country that has most of its animals able to kill you with a harsh stare.
The races are hardcoded, as well as their own unique methods of FTL travel, and the economy and empire are fairly hardcoded as well (yet still moddable via globals), however the ship sections and weapons are extremely moddable, including ship costs, HP, FTL speed, tactical speed, maneuverability and range. That includes the various Liir tactical advantages since they're coded in as part of the .shipsection files for their various engines section.
TL;DR: Yes, it is possible to do passable recreations of the Covenant and UNSC in SotS.
If you're going to bring the UNSC and Covenant to SotS, the best place to go for modding information and help is the Modding section at the Kerberos Productions forums at kerberos-productions.com/forums.
A Halo mod for Sword of the Stars? Boy, that will be tricky to do considering SotS has six unique races. Would be awesome if you pull it off, though. I'm fairly familiar (read: a lot of poking around and random tinkering) with the data files SotS uses, so I could help you with coding for that game if you decided to mod for it.
Spino, are you going to be using the results of this tournament to help balance the various factions?
This one of course. It actually looks like a feasible tank compared to the other model.
So now GDI has EMP Cannons, Dual Gauss Turrets, Firestorm Cannons, and Dual Vulcan Turrets for defensive options? Nod better get some good artillery to crack these GDI defenses.
You should find a good proofreader/spellchecker for this mod since your English skills are quite poor.
No fan service? Shame on you.
No, Helge decided to keep the Juggernaut for some reason. He never said why.
Well, I suppose you're right about not lacking hardware, especially since the Titan and Wolverine will be in, correct?
No Juggernaut? GDI better have plenty of heavy metal to make up for that.
At least you didn't say the release was soon.
Why are Colonial main batteries torpedoes and not ordinary weapons? Just curious.
Why not make make the builder be the original Heretic, just re-named to something like Chaos Slave, and have the DoW2 Heretic become a scout/meatshield unit with the name of Cultist or something?
