Now somebody just needs to combine this with campaign commander and we have a full halo mod.

I found 2 problems so far, both dealing with the UNSC station. The hard points on the station read [MISSING], and theirs boring facing the UNSC because for some reason they only upgrade the station to Level 2. Other than that, this mod is awesome.

That's very strange, didn't have any problems with the AI upgrading in testing, I'll take a look at this tomorrow when I get home :).

was a little sad by the lack of fleet diversity on the covenant side, then I thought about it and realized that the covenant just had a big fleet full of the same ships, anyway Great Work.

There are actually two units who didn't make the release, we will probably add them in a future patch.

When I'm trying to make a game, and I try to set the teams, I can't change the team. Whatever I click it will change to team 1.

Just thought I would let you know my feedback on this;

The AI in generally seems weak, no matter the settings.

The UNSC will always spam fighters, Prowlers, and Makos until Level 3, and the Covenant AI is slow.

Overall, the UNSC seems to have the overall advantage due to cheap units, more diverse units, more units in general, and quicker build/research times.

You are one of the few who think the AI is weak, I've seen many comments about how overpowered the Covenant is.

We fixed the UNSC AI building smaller vehicles last night.

I'm with Shamrock on this one tbh.As UNSC, spam frigates early and then power level station for bigger ships to win. As covenant. Spam light cruisers for anti-fighter/small ship to buy time to up station to spam destroyers on up. The Covenant AI, on the highest difficulty should be building enough ships to have more than 3 or 4 on the map at one time. The UNSC AI should be frigate spamming more (at least before your fix) and concentrate on hitting covenant income (Make em nightmares on the highest difficulty. :P) Overall though, especially considering this is a first release, great work! Also somewhat unrelatedly, I have noticed a bug with the Mac cannon. Charging it prevents the firing of archer missles and point defense guns until it goes off. Also, the plasma storm (for me at least) does not work. Also... is the energy projector supposed to be able to range across the map? It seems slightly overpowered currently with it's unlimited range.

I think Blamtroid is limiting the range of the Energy projector in the next patch, so that won't happen anymore :P
