I love the idea of the sort of prefabricated habitation pods. I kinda hope/wish that code be coded in but that's unlikely. Its also what i loved most about the UNSC in halo wars the use of prefab bases.

Did you get him to do this for you? Or is this premade stuff from his premission? I hope you have him on your team, he's boss on concepting!

He is doing this for us. He's had a lot of concepts laying around and he's adapting them for this mod when he has free time.

No offense at all, but maybe it would looks a bit better if you didnt have to the two bio-spheres on those wings top because the ship just seems.... strange when it has these two domes sticking out of the sides. almost like it more of a structure than a star ship.. plus the pink.... i know covenant like there deep blues, purples, and crimson, as well as silver, but pink.... and thats like normal pink, thats like tickle me pink.. sorry guys, love the mod, love the team, but this ship... you guys swung and missed with me.

Or perhaps have them situated underneath the ship like one in front of the other...

The paint, which you seem to have the most grievances with, is a non-issue to begin with. Zero textures with his own distinctive style for the Covenant ships and this will no doubt get a once-over by him as well, in due time.

As for the design elements themselves, I'm going to say that this makes a lot more sense visually than any of the other designs that we've sorted through so far.

I agree with CanadaMan on this one. The ship's design itself fits the role of "Colony Capital Ship". The paint can be whatever you make it. Don't like it, Xtreme, you make it yourself. The paint here does not count to the ship, or the overall role of it's purposeful design. And as a side-note, the extensions also count to the ship's role.

We have 20+ ship slots to fill for each faction. Not every.single.model is going to resonate with every fan. We really like this design. We do appreciate your input though.

Either the modders personally disagree with my statements and down-voted me in which case is fine due to them providing an arguement, or some fan's that don't understand criticism is good for a mod are down-voting me out of blind fan-dom then they can bite me.

No it's just when I have issues with the mod (models looking imo strange and what not)which is rarely to begin with, I actually decide to post those concerns to see if anyone else agrees, however there are many people who follow a blind sense of fandom and just downvote criticism. You guys do amazing work but it's not like you can make water in wine and sometimes as a fan i feel you guys get somethings (i dont want to say wrong but for lack of a better word i must) wrong. still cheers to modding team!

(Reposting my comment as I had sense and got an account. Otherwise sorry for double post to those that can see both.)

One thing that might help the design help appeal to more people (Myself included, though this setup does still look decent) Would possibly to tilt the 'wings' downward by say... 30 degrees or so. Just a little input.

If my wings you mean the fins on the underside of the bow I agree they could use a bit more tilt similar to that of the CCS, however if you mean the out croppings holding the prefab habitation pods then I disagree.

I think it's actually one of the best original designs of the covenant ships there is.

Cheers to Hoffmeier, it's a really cool concept.

This concept appears to fit the role set for it quite well. It looks almost like a carrier or a cruiser that has additional life support and living quarters attached to it to facilitate the spread of the Covenant to new planets. Great job on the concept.
