The fate of the entire human race rests in your hands. Lead it to victory, or crush it as you march to salvation!
Neat! what will it fire?
It fires Fuel Rods, like Halo 3
That's damn well done, again. Can we see it in action firing when you finished the projectile? (Assuming you haven't finished it already)
Uses the same fuel rod particle as everything else...so the one the Hunters are using a few screens back.
Will it be as awesome as that glitch on the Covenant in Halo 3 where you rain fuel rod on everything?
It can shoot at any unit type...though it will shoot only six rods then a cooldown of 8 seconds (subject to change). Fuel rods are pretty powerful and I don't want any "basewrecker" units except for the Scarab.
Will Scarabs be on par with an AT-At in terms of costs/build time?
No. They will be very expensive and very slow to build...but I plan on making it worth both in terms of destructive power.
I want them to be the "oh ****!" unit that doesn't appear very often but when it does, you know you're ****** -OR- the unit that you send in with confidence and then **** yourself when a clever commander defeats it. I want the player to sweat out those battles and really force themselves to work to destroy it.
sweet! I love a good challenge. Its cool how you already have all this stuff thought out already, I have yet to ask a question you cant answer right off the bat.
"Start with the end in mind"...one of the 7 habits of highly successful people. lol. Worth the read.
I always like a good book, Thus I despise Ebooks though im a bit of a nostalgic type so thats also why.
Ebooks suck. I agree.
The better question is: will it be able to fire on ground units as well as air units?
Looks beast btw! XD
Yes, it can fire at all units types. All units can target and fire at all unit types :)
this is looking sweet, again if u need help coding just let me know
Will do, thanks!
Very creative design !
Design, courtesy of Bungie. lol
Ooh.... Shiny! This mod has already made itself the epitome of modding epicness.
When you look at who's making it, did you expect any less?
Not really. With the work of the_Farseer one must expect awesomeness of an unexpected level. But if what we expect is unexpected.... AHH!! PARADOX!
Haha :) Thanks guys
I know I am.
was it gold in Halo 3? I remember it being gold. but anyway, looks awesome.
It was red-ish in Halo 3 Google.nl
ah. The sunlight on the Wraith and gave it a goldish glow XD thank you for reminding me XD
Just noticed that the shadow is in the shape of the wraith. Did it do this automatically, or did you have to create a new "shadow blob material"?
The shadow, as with all shadows in the mod, are actual meshes with the shade shader applied to it. To explain the process a bit, you build your main 3D model and apply the skin to it. Then, in 3dsMax, you duplicate that model and apply a separate shader to it, which tells the game how to render it's shadows. So, the "wraith shaped" shadow you are seeing is just that, a exact shadow of the wraith.
Shadow "blobs" are actually just transparent images that are rendered under a unit...not a true shadow but a semi-effective fake.
I like this a LOT more than the little circles the engine generates. Very good job thus far!
You do realize that the default game generates shadows like mine, right? The only reason it wouldn't is if your computer can't support it...which means those little circles will appear in my mod as well. Sorry if I just killed your anticipation.
the_Farseer, you really are taking this game to the next level... Again. Congratulations and thanks for this piece of art you are sharing with the community.
Thank you :)
look at the ground next to the anti air wraith it looks like a alien racoon that just got splattered
Oh, haha :) That's actually a Marine but it's still roadkill.
Lookin' good. As usual, of course.
But still, I mean, lookin' great.
I remember stealing one of these in Halo 3. It was good fun unloading fuel rod rain of death on all the Brutes in that level.
is that a jetpack brute in the background?
if so, what weapon does/is it carry(ing)?
no its a hunter
look at its feet and gun
