And on top of that we have some shiny new projectiles, more specifically new Plasma torpedoes as shown in theses pictures.

One thing I'd like to point is that this is NOT star wars vs Halo, the images you see with star wars units in are there to demonstrate graphical changes such as projectiles, this is due to not many staff members actually having many Halo units, I'm the only one who has them all. At this point I'm going to hand it over to our friendly neighbourhood can-do-everything-modder Anh Nhan, see ya next week people :D.

Hi everyone,
today I’m speaking to you as a real person, a real modder, not just as a fictional 1stLt UNSC Marine. If somebody loved me more as the 1stLt: Sorry, guys. I don’t have a story yet. But, hey, did I already mention that I’m multitalented? Yes, and because of that I have to show you a little picture.

See something new? If not: Play a GC and look close at the planets. If you still don’t see the difference: Pwnd! But I have to say that it is a beautiful picture. No, joke. See the matte black? In the original game it wouldn’t be there. And we I didn’t modify the planet. So you should ask how we managed to get the matte black, don’t you? Here’s the answer: We’ve recently added a new feature: IMPROVED SHADERS! Right, new shaders. And if you know Stargate: Empire at War, then you should know what it means: better graphics. See this picture.

But we also have some funky realistic ones.

Cool, huh? See all these effects and lights? Isn’t that cool? All the same, but not the same though.

Hope to see you again
Battlefield-god Anh Nhan

HINT: I guarantee that I do not possess any current Halo: Covenant at War units, so you won’t see many in-game units from me. We don’t have enough time to synch our work with the whole team...

Man, I love your new shaders Ahn Nhan (is that actually a name?), It truly brings out the awesomeness in SW: EaW. Also, I do like the new Plasma Torpedoes added in there too, especially the particle stream it creates but the shields on the ships definitaly need some work. Good work for a week on special effects!

Anh Nhan is his name, and UNSC ships don't have shields.

I have one small suggestion; remove that part at the end of the Marathon's engine. The Halo 2 version uses those polygons for the engine glow. So it's not part of the Marathon model. You also might wanna double check if it's not a Halo 2 copy btw. Wouldn't wanna get into legal trouble do you? I know I wouldn't want that for you. We do not need another Halogen kind of thing.

I don't see how it could possibly be a copy if Blam made it. A halogen kind of thing would most likely be caused by selling products related to your mod. ;)

Arrgh! Why can't this be for regular EaW? Too lazy to buy FoC... O well it's fun to watch too... but not as fun as playing.

This all cool, Halo Wars lacking space combat of any kind, but are we gonna see any land battles soon? Given the fact that Halo focuses primarily on ground pounding, I'd think that would be the simpler project, not having to create new units and everything. But then, I don't really know anything about modding. Also, a suggestion for skirmish/multiplayer(if such a beast exists), maybe in addition to new maps you could use some from Halo: Custom Edition. I think a skirmish battle on Extinction or Hugeass(sorry if I broke a rule, but that's what it's called) would be freaking awesome!

we'll try to remake some maps in EaW/FoC of course, i mean halo wars remade blood gulch, so we make the rest. but you can only exspect outdoor only.
and yes, we also make ground battles. important for the campaign. we're planning a whole longer campaign than halo wars, you know. ok, not sooooooooooooo long, but long enough for you guys to spam the comments with questions
