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?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
the_Farseer Author
the_Farseer

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.

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"?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
the_Farseer Author
the_Farseer

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!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
the_Farseer Author
the_Farseer

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.
