To combat the constantly asked questions cropping up lately

Posted by on

Is the Spirit of fire/Covenant destroyer/Phantom/Pelican/Covenant Super carrier/Forerunner dreadnought/Flood/battleship yamamoto/sniper ship from fall of reach going to be in the mod?

No.

Reasoning -

Mix and match:

Halo Wars is bad. We don't like the designs, Colony ships should not be that strong, the design did not follow UNSC design memes. The design did not follow Covenant design memes. It's an assault carrier but ridiculously big. It would be ridiculously overpowered. They would be ridiculously over powered and/or hard to balance. Our current plans mean they can't be included due to engine limitations.

Why are there not more ships/why have you not released more ships/why are you not releasing more ships/why are you not working faster/why is X not in yet/is X in yet?
The old ships have various technical problems which makes them unsuitable. They'll be used as placeholders as we include more stuff. The release you're currently playing is old and was only released because people kept asking for new ships. It is not going to be the build we'll be using as a basis for future releases, it's just so you can play around with some more stuff, as a result it only has ships that were implimented at that point in time.

There won't be any new models until atleast the 15th unless Matt or Krazy makes them in the mean-time.

Why are there no textures/why are things blobs?

There are no texturers. We have no texturer. The odd ship will be textured by Krazy, but we don't have a full time one right now. Ships are blobs cause of an old import error that Matt used to get. It doesn't happen with newer ships.

"Halo Wars is bad."

Your opinion should not have to limit your mod, but w/e.

It's not limiting our mod by excluding badly designed ships.

I woulda thought that the Pelican would be a good corvette against seraphs.

Our image of corvettes is slightly larger than HW2's depiction, they'll be more along the lines of small frigates rather than large fighters. The Pelican isn't being included because we can't have boarding with our intended resource system.

The Marathon from Halo 2 doesn't fit current design memes set in Reach.

Your post is a bit paradoxial. How does a ship shown in the past not fit 'current' design memes of something that comes after it...

And if anything, the PoA from Reach looks more like the Marathon in Halo 2 than the original PoA...

The Marathon sets the design memes for the UNSC and defines their style, everything from Reach has the same memes.

Hi I was just wondering what you use to edit your .hod files because i just wanted to change a few things (for personal use) like give the strike frigate from the first release a few more guns and some missiles but HodEd won't open it.
If you could tell me would be very appreciative thanks in advance
