You have your names mixed up, nooblet. The Phoenix is a carrier 2.5 KM long. Frigates are the smallest ships up there.

IIRC, in-game the Phoenix-class refit colony ship is a lot bigger than the Athens-class carrier.
Is our current Phoenix mesh just that inaccurate?

yeah i know that, twas talking about the frigates, i thought they were smaller, i thought they were the size of the ship between them and the prowler.... if you were talking about the class (carrier, battleship, frigate) i meant the most common one found in the halo universe..... (not that great with the actual versions of that class) sorry if i caused confusion... especially in this one, lol :P

So you thought that the frigates were the size of corvettes.
It's kind of hard to get a sense of scale in the Halo games IMO, they don't show ships close together clearly often, and then they throw you curve balls like the Covenant supercarrier. I felt like I didn't have enough eyes to see that thing.
Not like if one were to count individual eyeballs, but if eyes was a substance that you could quantify with some standard measurement for fluid volume.
(e.g. I only had 320 milliliters of eyes, so that supercarrier blew my ******* mind.)

If it is, expect it when the mod's released for Rebellion. Long ways away.
On the forums from CanadaMan: "It's important that for the most part, this mod has an "official year", 2543. Any attempt to go into Halo 4 will likely have to wait until Rebellion (which seems reasonable anyways)"

Shouldn't the missile bays/escape pods on the Athens carrier be much smaller if they're supposed to be the same type that's on the frigate?

Also Annihilater102 is working on the Valiant-class super-heavy cruiser (based on the UNSC Everest, the ship Admiral Cole commanded), concurrently with the Marathon-class refit cruiser.
As Unikraken has said in the main comments, the Valiant-class super-heavy cruiser will be based upon the Marathon-class refit cruiser, as no canon material has ever clearly illustrated it to our knowledge.
As for the Thermopylae-class supercarrier, quoting from the same post I quoted earlier, Canada has said on the forums: "And yeah, current thermop model is getting the boot."
a_lleras is modeling a fitting Supercarrier replacement mesh as we speak.
He's very excited about it, as are all of we. :D

I encourage everyone to join us on the forums where much information about the mod is available, and your input is acceptable.

I would be interested to see what the Valiant will look like. This may have possibly been the Everest, as seen in the Genesis comic.

I actually brought this up on the forums just two days ago, and referenced that image.

Unikraken said this to me:
"The image above is heavily disputed. I've seen people argue before than the ship shown is actually just a Marathon in front of other ships. For instance, the front could be that way because of a frigate in the background.

Anywho, because there isn't a definitive image of the ship, we are making our own version in-house. It will be called the Valiant-class in the game, and our use of "Everest" or "Marathon Refit" has just been colloquial lingo.

The model will be a heavy modification of the Marathon model currently in production and will replace the current Marathon capital ship. Even if your image is accurate, the ship is clearly a modified Marathon, so either way this is the best course of action."

Your input is certainly appreciated though.
It should be interesting to see Annihilater's take.

Also I should say, this is one more good reason to go sign up at the forums, so you can follow all of these little details, and participate further.

You know looking at the old Halcyon and the New Halcyon side by side. It almost looks as if the new Halcyon is the same as the old. Just with a bunch more armor slapped on over top of the original.

Description

An updated look at the re-invention of the UNSC.

Also, the Athens carrier is about as badass as it looks.
