Wow a lot of solid work. Good job guys! I like the balancing tweaks I see (I'll have to feel them out in the actual game though) but it did seem like the UNSC ships popped each other a bit too fast sometimes.

Next stop... Covenant? :D

Pretty awesome beta release. Game did not crash one me once.

I have to say that I absolutely like how you are keeping to the franchises lore by making ships very easy to destroy/powerful MAC. Makes me think more tactically. As a nice side effect, makes battles more cinematic.

The one thing that turns me off is the Flood working like normal Pirates but that is WIP I guess. It was fun watching them take over ships and stations. Usually turn them off in the pre-game settings.

9/10 Would tap that again.

the flood are a massive WIP that needs a major overhaul. However, it is low priority compared to, say, the covenant. There are plans for them being able to colonize planets and have capital ships

Idk, super star destroyers are massive but thin and the infinity can ram into big ships as seen in halo 4, also the MAC guns are like everywhere on it lol

The infinity wouldnt be able to get past the shields. Remember, star wars shielding is far superior to anything UNSC or Covenant, Just like many other aspects of their technology, which is why "universe wars" are bad ideas.

SSD is significantly larger than infinity... That would not go well...

Infinity is nearly the size of an ISD... SSD is significantly larger.

Anyways, yeah what Defender said. No inter-universe wars here...

Could you please change the female voice for the colony Phoenix
It's to high and loud for my ears and the speakers
Every time I click on the ships it's a pain in my ears
And the speakers scrapes
Could you pitch her voice down or something ? Please
(On my headphones and my laptop it's the same, it's not a problem of my speakers€

You know you can change the volume of the voices in Settings, right? Also, no one else has complained, which makes me think you're an isolated incident.

How do I install this? I'm usually not this useless, but I have downloaded the update and now I don't know what to do. I tried pasting the mod data over the original Entrenchment data. Didn't work.
