A Halo mod for the critically acclaimed Sins of a Solar Empire, that aims to capture the fast paced intensity of the Halo series.
*insert flight of the valkyries here*
god that would be beautiful... wonder if it's possible
Now it has to be done. One way or another!
Could change the music files so that when you are sieging an enemy held world that the song comes on.
Looks Epic. Though I doubt that they are filled with marine boarding parties? :P
There you go defender ..... ;-)
how many ships did it take to carry all those pelicans?
Only 25 Berlins... I know.
well theirs what 150 pelicans in that screen shot so that's maybe 2000 marines, a lot from just frigates but hardly enough to take a planet
thats just the reconnaissance unit.
Its a quarter of a company and if you think about it, you most likely wont need more than that. Once major infrastructure and tactical control has been established, mopping up operations would require a lot less troops.
Heh, liking the little explosions around the Pelicans. They add a really nice effect to the invasion.
Have the impact particles been started/finished?
I was thinking it'd be great to have AA fire similar to Halo 2 (ODST going towards Delta Halo).
dude that would look amazing
The current, (I've modified it a bit), is the one on the forums atm: I.imgur.com
Awesome.... I am so excited for this mod that when talking about it with my friends I can barely talk straight if I'm lucky. Best part is, you guys are only making it worse.
Be sweet to see the occasional Pelican get shot down or spin out. Ah... Still pretty cool nonetheless.
Don't think I haven't thought of that...
all your base belong to us
no we need the song "One Final Effort" playing from halo 3!
Ah, yeah. I used that for the first ever trailer for SotP.
So if this was an invasion orchestrated by frigates, I wonder what a full on Capital ship supported invasion would looks like, also are the pelicans completely replacing orbital bombardment? because I think it would be cool to throw a couple of missiles in with the pelicans (or MAC rounds).
I don't hope it will be fired from the cannon place, would look really stupid when the MAC cannon spit out Pelicans for an invasion lol :)
Berlins no longer have MACs, and it doesn't come from the MACs on the other bombardment capable ships.
So many pelicans.
Will there be a particle for the pelicans after they land, such as ground battle explosions across the planet?
it's dhoul. Of course there will be.
One more amazing reason to keep playing the mod.
Oh, and what about the Covenant? Are they still gonna glass planets, or are they invading with Phantoms as well? Or a mix of both? Frigates with Phantoms and Cruisers and capitals glassing?
ok is it just me but does it look like the orion cruiser is firing a giant laser beam when those 2 pictures are next to each other at the top of page
I remember seeing the "first pelican model" in SOTP in 2009. It may have been a render, I cant remember, but im amazed on how far the mod has come. Thanks for the awesome work you have done.
... what if... those are Spartan IV's instead of Marines...
Somebody just opened up a can of Whoopass

Planetary invasions tend to make D-Day look like a skirmish.
Also, note that this particle effect is still WIP.
