32 comments by Unikraken on Jul 21st, 2014

Greetings,

As of this writing, version 0.56 of our Halo total conversion for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion v 1.82 is being packed up and readied for public consumption. I will be uploading the mod at midnight local time, so expect to see it ready for download some time Monday morning (link will be at the bottom of this post when available).

In this update you'll find a number of updates and changes. I'll list some of the more significant ones below:

  • Gameplay balance has been tweaked several times over the last 7 months, so it's too numerous to list here. You'll have to play to find out.

 

Major Covenant Changes

  • There is now a placeholder model for the SDV corvette on loan from our EaW sister-mod Covenant at War.
  • The DDS-class Carrier has been given a very sexy new model and texture thanks to our asset-sharing partnership with our Homeworld 2 sister-mod Homefront.
  • Type 27 Space Banshees have been added as the Covenant fighter. Model and texture thanks to our asset-sharing partnership with our Homeworld 2 sister-mod Homefront.
  • Several texture and tangent map enhancements have been made to Covenant models to remove the seam visible in the last release.
  • The Assault Carrier is now immune to disabling effects and flood infection.
  • The Pickett has become the anti-fighter ship featuring pretty damaging pulse lasers to help repel UNSC and Flood alike.

 

Major UNSC Changes

  • Mako is out, Stalwart is in, including fancy new model and texture from our UNSC lead artist Annihilater102.
  • Massive changes to the UNSC starbase, including a new modular upgrade system and powerful weapons. She'll make you think twice about assaulting her if you pay the piper his due. AAA helix autocannons, Archer missiles, and Onager-style mini-MACs litter the station as well as research for a Shiva nuclear warhead.
  • Tangent maps for UNSC ships are slowly being updated to improve lighting and visual fidelity and you'll see some of those updates in this release, but more are to come.
  • Fractions.

 

Major Flood Changes

  • Flood no longer accept bidding for who they are going to attack. Their behavior is now independant of player actions.
  • Pure form Flood Carriers are now in and ready to scare the shit out of you.

 

Other Changes

  • Very fancy new skyboxes thanks to Max from the STA3 team and Egosoft.
  • Approximately 30 new planets not including Forerunner locations.
  • Several planets with custom textures from the lore available for custom map building; including Earth, Reach, and Sanghelios.
  • Updated soundtrack thanks to our composer Waseem Faraz Butt.
  • Updated voiceovers thanks to our audio director I_Am_Sancho.
  • We liked our main menu so much we put a ring on it.
  • Updated win/lose screans for both factions from custom art thanks to Kawassass00.

These floods are just ridiculous overpowered.
I had a defence wit 4 SMAC's, 1 Hangar, 1 Orbt. Command, 2 Phoenix Class's, 5 Athens Carrier, 7 Stalwart Frigates and 4 Marathons.
The got all wiped out! Just because the floods fighter hijacked all ships and SMAC's in no time.

Yeah, stalwarts will save your ***. Like sparatus said, at least 50% should be stalwarts.

Only 7 stalwarts? Your fleet needs to be at least 50% anti fighter when going up against the flood IMO. I do think covies have it easier vs the the flood now that pickets work now and the CAS is immune to infection.

I've found that Flood will often bypass my blockades and start seizing my undefended core worlds, forcing me to send a fleet there. Is this intentional?

Yeah they go where they want. It's best to ensure that your core worlds have some sort of defense to ensure the few ships that bypass your initial defenses don't survive for long.
