This was just a real quick ai brawl. Spartan and I had an epic battle before this that sadly didn't record and he left so we couldn't do another. The Christmas multiplayer one will be awesome once we fix all the major bugs.

I am sorry i would of loved to have had another match but i had to get up for work at about 5 hours after our last match... but that match while unfortunately not recorded was totally worth it...

just wondering is the gantry hit box sorted out yet?

I wince every time I hear my voice. :P At least we don't have to worry about Chaffe's voice getting in the way of things.

Great vid showcasing the Covenant! The music is absolutely fantastic as well. I loved it when the Marathon was getting ripped to shreds just as the slow piano piece started up: what great timing!

If I had any criticisms it would be this one: are there any plans to create some nice FX for plasma torpedo impacts? I don't know if it's just the video quality but they do seem a little... underwhelming as it stands.

they are annoyingly underwhelming in game as well... they need work... hmm maybe something like the nuke impact after effects

i love how the ships move in Homefront and it suits this combat style.
Also see if u guys can record a 1 v 2 ship battle (1 covenant v 2 UNSC) and just let them battle it out. it would be truly epic

First off, I would like to thank you guys for your hard work. The Covenant looks great! I do think the plasma torpedoes should be just a tab bit faster, but that's just me. Y'all are doing some fantastic work. The CCS battle cruisers look sick. Especially their size. Everything the UNSC has is tiny compared to them. It fits perfectly. I was wondering, is there an estimated time for the release of the Covenant?

Also, at 11:40 when the destroyer was trying to fight back I thought it was cute because there's no way that it could destroy the Covenant ship.

Description

Spartan and I filmed a full 50 minute match that we were going to upload, but fraps bugged out on me and didn't record the whole thing. Fraps also bugged out slightly while filming this, causing one or two tear/skipping sections.

All content here is in beta. Being the idiot I am, I set the ship limit to high. Around 15 minutes the FPS drops to an all time low due to 100+ ships that aren't 100% optimized flying around blasting the s*** out of each other. Fraps also dropped the framerate slightly. On bigger maps this isn't a major problem due to the size of our maps. Also the tigershark draw distance issue mentioned and shown in the video has been fixed. Music player is still slightly buggy, but the all the new tracks are in.

About the video itself, my mic was turned on low, sorry about my voice either being hard to hear. I was narrating events to o0Faced0o and Zero ended up coming back from being afk around 6-7 minutes in. Didact was also in the call while filming this.

We plan to upload an in-depth gameplay video around Christmas or New Years. Stay tuned. The SMAC will be in the next video.
