Frequently Asked Questions: Just some questions that we get more than others. Should clear up most confusion people have.

Posted by on

Q: Is this a Halo mod for Arma?
A: Yes.
-
Q: Is that legal? Aren't you scared of being shut down?
A: No, because we operate under Microsoft's Game Content Usage Rules which allows use to use the Halo franchise's content as long as it isn't ripped illegally from the game. We create our own content using the game's material as a reference.
-
Q: When are you going to release it?
A: Currently, we have plans for a 3-stage release. Alpha, which should be released sometime Q4 of 2014. Beta, which will release sometime in 2015. And finally, our v1.0 full release, which will be later in the year of 2015 (possibly even early 2016 at the latest).
-
Q: Are you going to include...
A: We have a list of planned assets that you can look at to see if it will be included. If what you are looking for isn't listed, ask about it.
-
Q: Are you going to includes the Covenant?
A: No, while the Arma engine would allow it with the use of custom skeletons doing so requires a VERY large amount of work creating hundreds and hundreds of new animations for each new skeleton. We feel that the Insurrectionists are a better enemy to fight against with this mod because they are unexplored by the flagship games and they are much, much easier to make.
-
Q: Are you going to include Master Chief/SPARTANs?
A: Master Chief will NOT be included. But as for SPARTAN-IIs, this is unknown. We will decide later on in development if we want to include them but as it currently stands we may not. This is because SPARTANs have an history and image of being "invincible" from the main games. We do not want to re-inforce this because with Arma, no matter who you are if you get shot you are very likely to die. There are no recharging energy shields and super strong exoskeleton suits here.
-
Q: Are you going to make it compatible with ____ mod?
A: We have a select list of mods that we plan to make compatible. If you don't see the mod you want on that list ask about it.
-
Q: Do you need any testers?
A: No, thank you. Public alpha will release soon enough and everyone will get to have a taste. Just be a little patient. :)
-
Q: Can I work on the team?
A: Yes! We are always looking for new help. We are only looking for experienced modders unfortunately. We do not have the spare time to teach people how do things right now. If you know how to model, texture, use Bohemia Interactive's mod tools (especailly O2 and Vistor3) please contact SpaceNavy90 through the Bohemia forums, ModDb, or Steam.
-
Q: Where can I follow the mod's progress?
A: Either through the Bohemia Interactive forum post (http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?177321-The-Eridanus-Insurrection-An-Arma-3-Total-Modication/), through the ModDB page (https://www.moddb.com/mods/the-eridanus-insurrection/), through the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/eridanusinsurrection), or our Twitter account (https://twitter.com/TEI_DevTeam).

With great respect, I plead with you to consider adding Spartan III's in SPI armor or something of that sort. It'll provide a Spartan to quiet people asking for them, but also doesn't add in a crazy supersoldier that can't be killed. It adds something not seen in the games, as well.

There were only three companies of Spartan IIIs and all of them got whiped out, even the exceptions like Noble Team. Putting them in this mod wouldn't make sense from both a lore and logic point as they were never deployed within UNSC space.

I have one quick question, which is how to I use the mod? Like I have installed, Based on what I hear there aren't many servers so what game mode or map do I choose in the main menu to load this mod?

Update I downloaded a few scenarios but I'm missing several files i.e. TEI_UNSC_Units_ODST

Know how to fix?

Does this require any of the DLC to fully function? IE: Will I be able to fly a Pelican without the Helicopter download?
