a basic overview of a scifi face off, to wrok out which faction in the mod is most powerful...

Posted by on

Hey
This is the big surprise i was telling u about...
Basically its a tournament with one faction talking on another 1v1 style. It uses 2 HARD AI players, facing them off using a screen capture to capture the battle. I have not interfered or altered the outcome in any way. This battle is the two AIs only. I have cut a few things to make it more interesting, but over all it plays out how ever it plays out. I will be putting one up a week.
So heres the layout so far, i will post an image soon in the gallery showing this properly, but here it is...

ROUND 1 lineup is
Group 1
Wing Commander v Star Trek
Halo v Babylon 5
Group 2
Starship troopers v Battlestar Galactica

Stargate v Star Wars

ROUND 2
Group 1
Halo v Star Trek

Group 2
Battlestar V Star Wars

ROUND 3
Star Trek v Star Wars

winners will progress to round 2 then 3 versing the other winner in there group, loosers will be knocked out
This will continue until all the factions have fought.

I will be filming group 2 first, because they are all in and working, so far Halo, B5 and WC are no where near complete enough to do this. So they will wait until they are, if they are not ready enough by there turn then they surrender and we move on lol.

Technically speaking, if you went in and actually calculated the weapons' output for each and every ship in this mod (I know that at least Star Wars, Star Trek, Halo, and Star Gate have numbers out there for each ship and weapon), Halo would be completely uncontested. The UNSC's MAC platforms alone pack enough kinetic energy in each shot to completely atomize ships the size of cities if all of the momentum was transferred rather than simply having the projectile pass through, and Covenant frigates alone can withstand more than a single high yield nuclear device and still keep on fighting, never mind the big ships or the Forerunner "Dreadnaught" (actually a Keyship, their version of an oversized lifeboat to escape to the Ark and beyond the Halo array's effects), and even then the Covenant fleet would still horribly outnumber even the Empire's by at least a 2 to 1 margin if they were both in their prime. Still, it should be interesting to see which comes out on top.

Nah

Also
CCS-Battlecruiser=1,782 meters
ISD=1,600 meters
CAC=5,346 meters (17,540 feet)
Executor SSD= 19,000 feet.

... Regret's fleet that attacked Earth in Halo 2, which was a fairly small Covenant fleet for attacking a major planet, had 2 Assault Carriers and 13 CCS. If we are going on basic sizes (which the Empire tends to like using as a factor) The Covenant would most likely have a better fleet. The Empire is lucky to have 1 Executor and 3 ISDs. The Covenant brought twice as many large capital ships and over four times as many medium sized capital ships...and that was a small fleet.

Stargate owns them all, the sheilding abilitys of even the hatak vessels are more than anything els can penetrate, therefor they win. Wars comes in 2nd and after that its 2 close to call

I think Halo has a huge advantage with MAC's and Covenant shielding. I'd say a CAC (Assault Carrier) is like a star destroyer, but bigger. Star Wars will need to get the Executor to really pull off a victory

As far as shielding goes I'd say Covenant beats Star Wars, I'm not sure on the shielding in Stargate, although it seems closer to Star Trek, meaning it hardly ever fails entirely but often fails to stop all the force of a weapon... meaning a MAC, if it didn't penetrate the shield would still send the ship spiraling because of the kinetic energy.

Halo's mix between UNSC, Covenant, and Forerunner is going to really give it an edge.

Also I never got too much into BSG, what could they have that would bring them victory? They are pretty similar to Halo but without MAC's or Plasma Torpedoes correct?

Either way I'd like to see Halo come out on top..believe it or not :)

dont know why
SW ships are much stronger
halo is near future
SW, SG use tech of super advanced races
much beyond halo

I'm just going off of what I can see. A Star Destroyer has shields but similar to most shields in Sci-Fi the shield only reduces damage not stops it. Covenant Shields leave the ship completely free of damage up until they are broken. Also Star Destroyers most effective weapon would be its ion cannons, for taking out the Covie shields.

Yes UNSC is a little less advanced as far as tech goes. But that doesn't mean they are useless. A UNSC Frigate has 1 MAC gun, 3 SHIVA nukes, 1500 Archer Missiles, and some silly point defense guns. This is roguhly the weakest ship the UNSC possess. Yet that MAC gun can tear a whole in an unshielded Covie ship and totally wreck anything the UNSC possesses.
One Archer missile holds a 10-20 megaton nuclear warhead. That means one Archer missile is equal to 666.66(repeating) Hiroshima bombs. And there are 1500 on board the weakest UNSC ship. Meaning in just Archer Missiles a Frigate carries 1 million Hiroshima bombs.
I'm guessing that UNSC Titanium-A armor is probably just as or a little weaker than most Star Wars, BSG, StarShip Troopers, Star Trek armors. So I say you add UNSC destructive power, plus superior Covenant shielding and Star Wars loses. I have never seen a Star Destroyer actually kill anything in one hit.

Oh and the Empire can't hit the broadside of a barn that was 20 feet away with anything that isn't a Death Star

there is the EU (or expanded universe) that fill the gaps of tech and others
SDs shots are as powerful as nukes (each) if not more
one turbolaser produces 500 gigaton (500.000 megatons) of energy (something like that, i dont remember, all i know its much more than 30 megatons)
shields of one SD can resist the damage of a similar ship for 30 min (hundreds of turbos like that one at once)
logical that after the shields are gone it cant survive much longer
you have never seem a SD kill anything in one hit because the other SW ships are almost as advance as itself, all is relative
remembering that 80% of SW planets are shielded with enough strength to hold a hole SD fleet for days
the DS 1 shot can bypass that
SW is overpowered but in the cannon is like that

proportional power, the fighter is resistant enough to do it
if it was a halo fighter nothing would happen, plus the shields were down and the ship damaged
+ gravity
the hit destabilizes it for enough time to crash it into DS II

A Longsword is a big freaking fighter you can see in this mods pics. An A-Wing took out that SSD and an A-wing is tiny. How advanced your ship is doesn't matter when your talking about smacking into things. Its all about mass, velocity, and all that other stuffs not how strong your laser cannon is. So A large Longsword would have probably done more damage than that little A-Wing

Also don't think I'm hating on Star Wars or anything by any means. Love everything about it. I just think Halo tech has an advantage as quite frankly it has different technology working together. Star Wars will always be the same...always. If someone ever advanced the tech in star wars it'd be end of the world. So I think the more varied force is harder to counter and more varied in its strategy than a focused force like Star Wars.

i agree with luciano star killer, it took that whole reb fleet with moncals and fighter bombers to make it vulnerable to that fighter!

I already checked that one out..... I don't like mods that make you mess with the main foc's files, just ones that go into the mods folder. I still think that mod would be beast if it had a better install!
