***UPDATE***
**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: Mediafire.com
UNSC Paris heavy frigate: Mediafire.com
UNSC Longsword: Mediafire.com
Covenant Assault carrier: Mediafire.com
Covenant CCS cruiser: Mediafire.com
Covenant Seraph: Mediafire.com

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.
****WHEN INSTALLING I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU BACK UP YOUR X3TC DIRECTORY****
You will need Cycrows plugin manager to install these which you can find here: Forum.egosoft.com

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:

hey glbro are you gonna have a cloaking device because the UNSC had that capability, the UNSC Pelican "Tart Cart" had a crude cloaking device

be nice to see a clocking device usable by the UNSC tart cart and Port Stanley, but the ONI prowlers never had a clocking device, but still be cool so see them use one.

But my only concern is most mods utilize whats already in game, since there is no cloaking device like item (as far as i know at least), could it actually be implemented and used?

actually oni prowlers had the same cloaking capabilities as the Stanley and some generated a "stealth field" that's what let prowlers lay mines right next to covenant fleets, this also occurred in Halo Ghosts of Onyx, but the cloak could also just make ai ignore the "cloaked" ship and that would be enough

edit: source everything i say about the prowlers is confirmed with this page Halo.wikia.com

The prowlers did have a cloaking system, but basically the same stealth system the united states b-2 bombers have, its not actually a system, but rather a coating that asorbs radar and other detection methods and masks it thrust and power systems from detection from enemy ships.

The unsc tart-cart has an active system that adjusts the outer skin to "camouflage" it from targets. but it was still esencially had a passive stealth system.

The only unsc ship as far as i can find that had an "active" stealth system, is the ONI PRO-49776 , which was a specially built ONI ship of unknown classification. Was thinking of this as the stealth system you where talking about. Becasue any other stealth system would constantly be on and un able to activate.

Halo.wikia.com

But don't get me wrong, would love to see these ships in game and have them actually be able to hide. My only concern is how would it work and be balanced in game, since x3 really wasn't built with any stealth system or ai interactions for "stealth" targets and detection. Maybe making the Prowler class ships not read on radar and only able to LOS them, and making missiles unable to lock on to them, do in part to the stealth coating.

Know this is long, just my thoughts, i am a mixed fan, want the game to be lore correct, but still want to see some bad-*** stuff in game. But hell that's the halo universe, they kept changing it as the games progressed, so why shouldn't we?

Awesome mob so far, love the ships in x3. They all work fine and are just amazing looking. The only ship i have issues with is the covenant Seraph. Cant fly it first person, the bubble on the nose blocks all view, but it does fly nice.

Looking forward to see some new ships released and really looking forward for the guns also.

Just got to say keep up the awesome work, and making all us x3/halo fans extremely happy. :)
