I wish there was more forerunner stuff, I made a deal with mal that he could make the stormcutter and Gladius in exchange for anything forerunner in the book. lol
What type of "MAC countdown" are you suggesting?
Actually mathematically those numbers fit with canon.
I personally am kind of torn on the topic of Forerunner design. On one hand the Bungie era forerunner artstyle is i c o n i c and sort of portrays the mystery and lack of life that the race embues. But the 343 designs kind bring the technology and complexities of the forerunners to light in a more realistic sense.
Like how in the books the Forerunners were portrayed as having lots of micro slipspace bubbles, dyson spheres inside of impossibly small points on a planet entirely made of sentinels, rooms that had strange ways of traversing them to actually progress without being trapped in a temporal reference frame. Lots of time, gravity and robotics.
But in more recent books became weird things like walls that absorbed you in weird ways to enter an unknown room, strangely specific gene seeds, and giant knife robots that EMP planets.
I prefer the old style for its iconic feel and simplicity but I also kind of see sense in the new styles, fitting moreso with the descriptions of the rates and the technological advancement of them as a race.
We've looked over the Vindication-class before, it might show up in the post war mod depending on the situation. Also the Eion is based off of the Musashi, it was only seen once in a comic and never since, pretty common occurrence.
The forums have been pretty dead for a while so I'm hoping to spark a little bit of discussion on some things Halo.
Over the years the design of the Forerunners has shifted significantly. During the Bungie days the forerunners changed from having simple geometric shapes to having much more depth and varying their palette of geometry to include much more angular and organic shapes as well as varied colors.
With Halo 4 343 made the Forerunners in an all new light than anything bungie ever did, giving them an ultra advanced look, floating architecture and a certain angularity, a look that fit more with many of the feats described in the extended universe than the original trilogy. Some people hate this look, swearing to Bungies old style, some love it and others see it as a much needed addition to the forerunner artstyle rather than a replacement.
Where do you stand? Do you love the new artstyle? Hate it? What do you think the Forerunners should look like? feel like?
Post your thoughts below, keep it civil and have fun.

The only change to the Sahara you're probably seeing is the change to how sins handles lighting and textures especially on the highest setting. Some ships look better, some look worse unfortunately.
@베이클라이트 In their update video they literally have some footage we took of the mod.
@The-Judge said in The Official Status Thread:
The Mod is probably relatively inactive because of this: http://www.moddb.com/mods/enders-game-formic-wars
Ohhh yeah, forgot about working on that lol
Those look sweet! nice work sev
Wonder why it looks so good ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Great texture on that btw Tim, one of the best ones yet.
Pretty sure we already have spirits/Phantoms for the Covenant and Pelicans for the UNSC.
That would be awesome, just remember it is recommended that you purchase HFB in some regards, that's the whole reason the rule book is not included in that mod.
As purchasing from SG not only supports them but also 343 and all the people who work so hard there to bring us those fleet sets/games. Also shows people are interested in the space side of Halo.
@Delernil said in Halo: Fleet Battles:
@The-Judge Yeah, that really is the worst part. Only made worse by the fact Spartan Games isn't popular in the US :(
@Diezel23 Aww, that sucks. If we can ever find a way to set one up online, that'd be cool with me.
Technically there is one if you bought it and have a rulebook: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=752035611&searchtext=fleet
Shout out to Kurt, one of our testers for working on that.
Reminder to all: Try to keep images in imgur albums, it saves on space/bandwidth.
