**Hiring a part time modeller and texturer for covenant ships and stations,If any one is interested or wants more info, just send me a message**

Hello everyone, im going to keep this short and sweet.

So straight to the point, im releasing the first set of ships of which you'll find to download at the bottom of the page, now dont get too exited, the ships are about as bare bones simple as i could get them to avoid bugs, so this means no custom turrets, no custom cockpits (except the longsword, which is buggy but does not effect game play) and the biggy, no custom weapons. the weapons turned out to be very buggy and had major compatability issues with other mods, so have been left out of this release. what i have done though, is make sure that all turrets have all weapon compatability so they can fire which ever weapons you want them to.

Essentially what we're looking at here are just  xsp ship files, so very much just a taster of what this mod could be like.

There are six ships to download, three from each faction:
UNSC Halcyon cruiser:
UNSC Paris heavy frigate:
UNSC Longsword:
Covenant Assault carrier:
Covenant CCS cruiser:
Covenant Seraph:

There are a few bugs with these ships that i am aware of but these ships are the ones that seem to work consistently enough for me to allow a release.
You will need Cycrows plugin manager to install these which you can find here:

Hopefully this will give you all a good taste of what i envisage for some point in the future, and to tease you a bit more check out this video:

My only forseen problem with this Halo mod concept for X3, is that the amount of ships and other assets that X3 already has, will be wasted on such a small universe. Now, I'm not a Halo fanatic or a hater either, but the amount of stuff in X3 is like 5x what we have about the Halo universe. Not to knock you or anything, but without taking out alot of the stuff already in X3, how do you think you are going to go filling the Shipyards? There are not a hell of alot of Halo ships, it is a ground game. If you have a link to a database or something akin to that on Halo's spacefaring side, I'd love to see it.

Constructive Criticism. That's all. Cheers!

I imagine he'll be mostly coming up with new ships as he goes along, since that's all you can do with a series that priding itself on space combat in the first place. There's a lot of alternate reading/settings floating around about Halo that you can go off of as well.

Personal taste man. I don't think X has a deppressing soundtrack. It's perfect to keep you company while playing, doesn't throw itself at you unless a combat starts. It's not deppressive to me in the slightest.

Nice to see a good Halo space mod in development, there's more depth to be had in space than on the ground in Halo. =)

On that note, any chance of releasing the frigate, MAC, and a fighter as a stand-alone teaser ship-pack using XSP?

Cool, sounds good, definitely will keep people from doing what they do with the Halo mods for Homeworld 2 and such(AKA, five pages of "OMG WHEN").


That and I like the idea of blasting apart Xenon with a MAC.

This is the first halo mod I have seen of it's kind as all others are RTS or FPS.

I hope this one doesn't die on me.
