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

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

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.

Dhoul,
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).

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.

Great song.

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.

Will there be a particle for the pelicans after they land, such as ground battle explosions across the planet?

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?

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.

Description

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