if you dont want to make a frigate from ground up, you can rip it from this map

note there are about 5 of these maps and some of them are protected and i don't know if this one is protected

Hm...

please do not use the frigate from any of the rpg maps.. they look good and all but they have a boatload of model holes that are too numerous and annoying to try to fix

What's your thoughts on this, Egg, of the Frigate, and the project, given the feedback from Modacity? Danorue and the rest seem predisposed to despising any map having anything to do with several maps, including Extinction. Perhaps we could achieve the same goal in another scenario?

Egg, do whatever YOU feel you want to do. This is for fun, not pleasing people.

Hm...I'm not sure if it looks that vehicle friendly.

It needs less slopes, and more...how can I word this...

Well, I think that it should have more than one narrow canyon area. Leading from ship to ship. Maybe some tunnels that stretch in midair across the chasm, would be a nice effect.

You see, we need to turn the open, flat plain into a canyon array that can support small vehicles and give them cover from aerial fire. Not a maze, though.

Around the bases it should be mainly flat areas, giving large land vehicles like the scarab some moving space.

We will afterward discuss size of the map. We need to make it small but keep it huge... :P

I posted that at modacity, too.

Also, i'm going to look right now for a new covenant cruiser idea.

Frigates are quite small, but they look nice. :D

Tunnels in mid-air? Do you mean tubes? Or bridges?

A canyon array like the Truth & Reconciliation's crash site, the one with pools of coolant?

How about the canyons from a50, on a larger scale? And more vehicle friendly?

Tunnels meaning like, there is a canyon, heads towards the chasm. It leads underground and through the rock face of the cliff, and into the one opposite of it on the other side of the chasm.

See what I mean?

After being disabled, the vessel was forced to drop to 300 meters above the surface of the planet for refit and repair.

oh and it was mckay who destroyed the vessel because she realized that if 1 flood form got to earth alive it would end earth

Yes which is when the ship crashed onto Alpha Halo and was destroyed, not long before the Pillar of Autumn's fusion cores were detonated.

If you had read the book instead of skimming through it.

The TRC crashed when the POA detonated. Unfortunately, they did not get off in time to avoid the blast, so they were royally screwed.

Ok, this is what happened. Mckay Threw a grenade for jenkins as he knew what would happen if the flood got to earth, as he was still partially in control, the grenade made it so the ship lost all power and control, crashing it into what was under it. It Is Like A Crash site, enough of that.

If you use a frigate then can it have the Lauch bay for the aircrafts where it should be along the middle side of the ship, and have the vechiles come out of the hanger bay at the bottom of the ship (the one you fly your hog into on the last level of H3) and can you make the covie ship a bit bigger then the firgate it you use it

I'm thinking about making the frigate hover, instead of being crashed. It would be interesting.

god! i spent five minuets reading your covenent ship arguements!

anyways....

I think a hovering frigate and covenent ship would be good too! what would rock is if they both had hangers to em, like the one in rpg5. and the protype bobbysoon made a while back.

You should put a Hangar for the Covie Ship. It only makes it fair.

There will be one.

But its not very balanced, Covenant vehicles located in a wide open canyon. While human vehicles are all bunched in a hangar

no 2 sepatrae hangers, one on the bottom of the ship for the hogs to jump out of, then a separate hanger in the middle of the ship for the LS and pelis, they would be conected by teles and maybe connect to a corridor with empty life pod tubes for snipers to snipe out of

No, he's right, they don't sync. But, they can be made to sync through scripting, it's just that that syncing method gets thrown off pretty badly if a player joins while the device is changing position or in a different position.

The map will focus more on light vehicle and infantry combat while retaining the huge feeling that extinction had.

There will still be Longswords, etc., but there will not be as heavy a weighting.

I can't understand how a clan that looks like it's written by a 4 year old has 25 members.

I could own you guys at Halo 3, no sweat, but I don't have my 360 until Monday. Stupid crummy Xbox parts..

Also, devices do sync. But not on their own.

I have a theory that may help that: A server can detect when a player joins, right? Right. So when a player joins, the server can drop a vehicle, sleep a number of milSecs equal to device position, and then drop another. When the client detects that bip01 was squished, it records the time until bip02 is squished, and sets it's device position to the milSecs. Taking ping into consideration, the vehicle should be allowed to fall for a second or two so the client can get an update on both vehicles positions and velocity before squishing occurs.
[edit] are we talking about 4 platforms that descend from below the IAC? That's what I saw in a Sketchup model I downloaded (using rip from rpg4-5, btw (not as-it, don't worry. It'll be good:)).

Bobby, i sent you a pm about some human base layout. Check it when you get the time.

So, does anyone have any pictures of any more covenant ships? There are only a few from halopedia, most are picless.

The top one looks like a ghetto H2 Vista and the Bottom one is ugly to me :/

Top was the best In amber clad pic i could find.

Bottom is a destroyer, not sure if it is official or not. I think it looks pretty cool.

The Amber Clad is in RPG Beta 4-4. But still, that is still low poly and undetailed. Also could you get me that Amber Clad model from Halo 2 maybe?
