SpardaSon21 Aug 15 2011, 12:59pm replied:

Dynamic movement would only really be appropriate on frigates and maybe light cruisers. There's no way a Dreadnought, Carrier, or Heavy Cruiser would be doing quick slashing attacks on enemy fleet formations since they're all long-range combatants.

As to the weaponry, I hope Lord_Set fixes that. I'm sure he's read the Mass Effect wiki so he knows what weapons are used for naval warfare.

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.

I prefer this one. The legs look much better than the old ones, and the cannon assembly looks better too. The main body also looks beefier and bulkier than the one on the Neo Titan.

The Rev2 would be nice if it had thicker, bulkier legs since it already has a squat appearance befitting of a heavy assault walker, at least in the perspective shot.

Well, it's definitely different from vanilla Nexus. Gameplay was good, its just the story was annoying, especially with the mechanoids, Angel, and she being the only one who can kill them. It was just weird, as in Matrix weird.

Hell, my favorite Nexus mod is the New Universe mod, with no mechanoids AT ALL! Great story, good mission design and although it isn't as happy-ending as Nexus, it is a much more realistic and better written story IMO.

I have to agree with Otreum with a lot of stuff. The original Hell March was a lot more.... hectic I would say, like a proper Hell March. This is all kinda too.... composed. It just doesn't sound like Hell March at all in a lot of parts. Hell March could almost be heavy metal, yours is a lot milder, considering the USSR and the West are at war. It just doesn't sound right, especially the marching. It sounds like really low fidelity cymbals, no offense. I realize you guys have put a lot of work into this mod, and it looks great because of it. I'm just throwing out my worthless 2 cents here, hopefully you'll take it as the constructive criticism it's meant to be.

I will watch the trailer when it comes out, and I hope it matches God Of War for every drop of blood. I wish you the best of luck with your coder hunt, because fatalities are awesome, period, and anyone who says Mortal Kombat sucks is a wuss who needs Sub-Zero to pay him a visit and rip his head and spinal column out.

Will we be doing the classic God of War fatalities like disembowling cyclopses after gouging their eyes out and ripping people in half with their own swords? What GoW had going for it was its sheer massivenes in everything (bosses, environments, even the enemies were massive... in their numbers.) If it can't be that massive, then don't say it is like God of War. You're just insulting it if you do.

A book mod for Halo would be very hard and seriously require almost a completely different game. In the books, the Chief is faster, stronger, and just better than in the game. Also, the whole super-strength thing where he can flip over a tank yet have serious recoil problems really gets me. And the Covenant, one of their favorite tactics in the books is the infamous "Grunt Spam". Suicidal Grunt charges to deplete the enemy of ammo, and then the Elite's come in and mop the floor with the exhausted survivors. And by spam, I mean the Grunts will be climbing over piles of their own dead to get to you.

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

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.

A Pitbull is a two-person jeep with minimal armor plating. A Mammoth has a crew of two gunners minimum (one for missiles, one for main cannons), a driver, and a commander (most likely set up), backed by massive amounts of armor plating and the engine to carry all that weight. If you can't fit the two gunners, commander, armor, weapons, and autoloaders for the weapon systems into the turret, you need to make it bigger.

I'm really looking forwards to what you've added in this new version. Anyways, I have two questions.

Just download UnfBig. I have it in .big format too. It was easy. I just took the mod folders, put them in a folder named SeriousMod (UnfBIg doesn't like spaces in filepaths) in my UnfBig root directory (C:\UnfBig\), then opened UnfBig, selected the folder, and clicked "make .big file". So now I have a nice shiny SeriousMod.big file in my data directory.

Any chance of something that makes the Mammoth look like a Pitbull?

Oh and will the vanilla railgun effects be used? They suck TBH. Identical to the NOD particle beams, which is not how a supersonic massive slug should look.
