Welcome to the Halo Wars: Speadhead Overhaul
Scroll all the way down for added information and WIP Guide.
This mod is not yet released and is looking for additional team members.

Progress on this mod has been halted due to life. I have an extremely busy schedule now and unfortunately cannot dedicate my time towards this mod any longer. If mod tools arrive for custom models, I will be back, since a huge drive for me working on HW DE was to do such thing. Currently, I work a 50~ hour work week, and most of my free time is spent 3d modelling and sleeping.

The mod is unfinished, and Alpha 0.02 has been released, so those who wish to take from my mod, can do so. The code and artwork will be more useful to mod creators, as it is not a very playable build.

Currently, to re-kick my drive into HW DE Modding, I want to help create a modding website to help new users get into modding the game, as all existing tutorials are brief, and dated. Hopefully create a new modpack aswell, since over a year, I've forgotten most of my modding skills.

Thank you for your support and wishful thinking in my times away, I'm sorry I couldn't "Finish the fight".

How to install
There is no alpha versions available yet.

Known bugs:
-Scout Snipers will play a unit built voice line while they are still being dropped off by the Pelican.
-Present units upgraded with a unit replace/remove will have 1 extra member. New squads will have the correct number of units.
-Scout Sniper's weapons do not camouflage. This does not trigger unit aggro though
-Infantry Sections have their spawn animation removed due to crashing the game while using a pelican drop in animation (sniper works)
-Infantry Sections do not have a large green unit selection for some reason.
-Scout Snipers spawn with Active Camo as when upgraded to get the ability, it does not work
-Spider Tank and Anti Air Spider Tank's icons do not show locusts, instead show Spirit of Fire default logo

-Spider Tanks so not have the large purple unit selection for some reason.
-Flood Scorpion's tentacle does not do damage.
-Flood Builders can get stuck inside buildings.
-Captured Sentinels do not attack anything when freed.
-Empty Scorpions cannot be re-garrisonned. (Big Issue)
-Empty Scorpions spawn controllable.
-Flood Infection Forms + Variants cannot gather resources.
-Flood Grunts have no unit sounds (chatter, moving).
-Some times dual-turret unit's turrets will clip into each other. (12.7 Coyote, 3.7cm Coyote)
-AT Cyclops can only fire while moving, will NOT fire when stationary
