Damm he looks freaking awsome
(******) arrrgrgghghggahgahgahe are those carbines upgradeble?
No. Units in the mod are not all repeats of each other. variations will appear withing squads... Ex, some elites have plasma rifles, some have carbines. Some grunts have plasma pistols, some have needlers, etc.
huh i think they should be upgradeble though.
An upgrade system like the one in company of heroes or Dawn of War would not be possible in this game. The alternative is an upgrade system that upgrades ALL units of a type with the specified weapon...which would be dumb. All Elites with carbines? Not so cool.
:( that sucks
Tell me about it. I would LOVE an upgrade system like the one in CoH but I just can't think of any way it would work with this game.
Contact other modders for this game, maybe they might know a thing or two. or even COH. ask them how they set it up, then you make it with a help. Or that might take a long time.
What about giving them the switch weapon ability? or something similar?
What would be the point of only switching between a plasma rifle and carbine?
Range, rate of fire?
Nah. Not worth it imo.
Not to contradict you, but you can make it so the specified unit changes. IE the unit changes from an elite to an elite with a carbine, two different unit codings. I'm sure i saw that in some mod.
Honor guard should protect prophets as well if they are going to be included
Prophets will not be included as ground units.
so if the prophets isn,t going to be in the mod will high ranking Elites like fleet commanders or Elite generals and the arbiter be in the mod.
Yep. Prophets will also be in the mod, but only as space heroes.
Indigenous units tend to be weak, is this the case? (Hope not).
By the way, cute model there for the grunt.
no Farseer mentioned before that they will kick ***
oh no hide your spleen man
Each unit, indigenous or otherwise, will be exactly as powerful as it should be...so honor guards will be actually more powerful that most other infantry. They will only spawn in very small squads, however.
Thanks everyone :)
Is that a gunner grunt? my second favourite grunt, the spec ops grunts in halo 1 is the best.
Better then halo 2 ones cause armour is more shiny in Halo 1.
I think some aspects of this model could stand to be improved a bit, but its still impressive. Personally i like this honor gaurd model better. Halo.wikia.com
Either way, does it look different because the bones need to stay low? seeing as its infrantry..
rofl thats a glitch not a real unit/rank
Yep. Not an actual unit, it was a glitch.
that helmet reminds me of a Xenomorph Queen =P
this looks pretty damn awesome! can't wait to try it out
It's beautiful... and I see you've implemented the new model in the generic elites as well!
Yeah. All elite variants have been updated with the new models/animations.
i thought honour guards had spears or pike's as you can call em
Some do but they are pretty much just ceremonial weapons. Most of the time they use swords or plasma rifles.
when i saw this i was like, YOU MADE THAT?, IT LOOKS SO AWESOME :D, man, that is awesome, too bad we cant buy them, anyways, nice-....i mean Excellent job
Haha :) thanks. I'm considering making them an attachment for the arbiter or some other hero unit...maybe.
that will be awesome, maybe for that, if a covenant supercarrier or another major covenant ship was over a planet when you attack the planet, an honor guard from the ship could be the commander on surface, kinda like how if an acclamator is over a planet, it can launch tie bombers
Spec op elites should be the arbiters body guards since they accompany him in most missions.
They follow arby from H2 & 3 but the mod is set before he's arbiter...so he'll actually be a fleet commander hero. Im thinking the arbiter i want for the mod is more...arrogant. Not the sagging-mandibled slobbering beast from halo wars but just an elite who just knows that hes the best around...and doesnt feel a need for stealth.
i thought the arbiter wasnt a bad *** rank but a disgrace (dont know how to spell it)
It is a title and a mark of honor...only the best and most skilled elites are chosen...which doesmt always mean they are moraly or socially perfect. If you remember, the H2 arbiter was made an arbiter to spare his life...not shame him...he had already been shamed.
the arbiter was an elite chosen to do the prophets biding. it was a symbol of honor. which is why all the other elites treat the halo 2 arbiter like dirt and why the halo wars arbiter commanded some spear elites that dont like spartans (dislike for spartans not proven :P )
I'm so glad you did this Elite variant, it's one of my favourite elite armour designs. The only thing I personally think could be changed is the helmet so that it looks less like the default elite and more like the helmet seen in Halo 2.
Yeah, i do need to add the nose piece and the side...um...bulges, i guess? I may do that later when im actually getting these guys in game.
I love you
I love everything, but the shields seem to be a bit too white imo
Amazing work as usual :D
The jackal shields? Yeah, i agree. Im putting that as a last priority though...gotta try and get the beta out befor MotY is over. Lol.
its always about the MotY :P
