It wasn't too bad actually :) Missile type projectiles have the code to follow a target, sticky bombs have the right code to allow a projectile to stick AND to explode after a set time. All problems solved :) lol.

I hope for the Halo 2 and 3 beam rifle and carbine, I'm not a fan of the needle rifle or the focus rifle.

I have to disagree, for the Covenant the beam rifle suits them better. The focus rifle is useful at close to medium range, but is not a real sniper's weapon. It reveals your position very easily considering it's bright and you have to fire for a long amount of time to kill what you're shooting. The carbine is also more conventional than the needle rifle and can fire faster and fairly accurately, so I prefer it over the needle rifle.

I agree about the beam rifle, one of the most fail sniper weapons I have seen.
However, I prefered the needle rifle to the carbine if only because it only takes 3 shots to an unshielded enemy for an instakill :)

Wait, are you sure you're saying the beam rifle (this thing Halo.wikia.com) is a horrible sniper's weapon compared to this thing (http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Focus_Rifle)?

I meant the Focus Rifle is bad. I ALWAYS get the names confused. The damn things look so similar!! But yeah...the gun from Reach (let's put it that way) is lame.

Because they needed it for gameplay reasons, since they atk at close range and the Councilors are ranged. Zealots also have stronger combat harnesses, I think... The Councilor armor is more ceremonial. I could be wrong about that though.

Well the Honor Guard from Halo 2 had headdresses like that, but the Councilors are only ever fought in Halo: Reach. I have indeed played every level of Halo 1-3. I didn't like that the Councilors were used as military in Reach because the books describe them as being political. The model is very nice though.

@the_Farseer

The Focus Rifle actually would be the better Anti-materiel rifle.

The plasma that it shoots would turn the hatch of a Scorpion Tank into molten slag, which would then pour on top of the operator.

the_Farseer Aug 10 2011, 3:43pm replied:

Well, if you're going to be super realistic, any of the plasma guns the Covenant use would do that. And, if the guns were realistic like that, the Focus rifle would be one of the most powerful guns EVER because you could simply point it at a column of enemies and sweep across them...killing them all.

Oh I have a query, I have FOC with RaW installed and I know that due to the AI overhaul that will make it so that this mod will be incompatible once it is released. So how can I make a second FoC which I can use for other mods?

the_Farseer Aug 11 2011, 1:31am replied:

That's a question that I can't answer. You can only have one copy of FoC installed at once on a regular system, as far as I know. I mean, if you were running a dual boot system you could have one installed on each OS but that's way more hassle than it's worth...or wait, no it isn't ;) lol

Simply copy the installation directory that's in your LucasArts folder. Rename it something like "FOC-Mods" but have all the same stuff in it. I did that a week or so ago and it works fine.

Description

Councilor was dual-wielding Plasma Rifles...thought the Needler was better for a field commander unit. Some grunts and jackals will sport these as well.
