A Halo mod for the critically acclaimed Sins of a Solar Empire, that aims to capture the fast paced intensity of the Halo series.
Weird, I always thought that the Halcyon was the bigger one...
The marathon was built to replace the halcyon, it also has twin-macs instead of just the one mac that the halcyon has
Looks as though it has four MACs
the halcyon is the smallest ship to receive the cruiser designation is has a single MAC cannon unless its the pillar of autumn that after its refit it had an experimental MAC cannon which could fire 3 times per charge instead of 1
I agree with both of ya, because I can't remember if it was two or three rounds/charge...=P
Remember that Mac cannons are internal weapons that require lots of space for the magnets and loading as well as a barrel. They wouldn't be visible as a protrusion on top of the ship. Those would be antennas and such
I was three rounds per charge because they had magnetic recyclers that would recapture the spent energy to fire the next two shots. To quote the book, "the first shot, perhaps the first pair of shots would take their sheilds out, the last round would be the knockout punch"
Perfect scaling. Just as how I imagined the beast of a warship.
Love it, 'nuf said.
I just jizzed in my pants.
Going to feel bad watching these get destroyed...
Well, you can always build more.
But you can't replace a good captain.
But you can get 5 more.
Unless it's captain Jack.
Something of mine just scaled up a notch too if you know what I mean... ;)
Why did you guys decide to scale it up? It's only a few meters longer than a Halcyon.
Just a difference of opinion with the IP.
yes. just yes.
I'll be having this battlegroup set up for my player vs ai matches- Marathon, 2 Halcyon, 5 Standard UNSC Frigs.
Those look amazing!
i cant wait to get in my capital ship and whup some covy ***
Really nice work guys, will prolly be one of the top 5 mods for sins ever made, if not number 1 ;)
I didn't come all this way to be second best, slugger. We're aiming to be top dog. All we need to do is somehow beat Dawn of Victory.
Captain: Wow, this is a mighty fine ship we have
admiral: Yes, yes it is
*covenant carrier jumps in and takes a giant turd on the ship*
Captain: What the hell was that?
Communications officer: Getting visual now captain
*Elite troll-face appears on-screen*
Covies for the win! :D Beautiful model bro
Dammit, I just finished my Marathon Model and was all proud of it, then I see this and im like... ****. Well now I got a smoken good reference picture to touch up mine. Extremely impress with the work of your modeler/s, Love the concept ships you create and they all have that UNSC feel and share the same level of Detail. Hats off to all of you, and Ill be purchasing this unknown to me game just for this amazing mod.
It's okay, Annhilater is a different species. So none of us have to compare ourselves to him.
This mod is also the only reason I started playing Sins.
Needs more Cowbell

An intimidating cruiser to say the least.
