You mean the one in USAF mod or the standalone one?I only tested the USAF one before,IMO,I don't think the cargo function of that C-17 works very well,often stuck in it.

LOL I didnt ask it to you!

Not every aircraft needs to have weapons just look at the UH60 Blackhawk. That is the role the Falcon takes on more than any other aircraft.

Falcon = UH60

Pelican = Mi24

Hornet = Little Bird

Or it can just be a forward mounted gun like how the AH-9 has, have it be a 30mm cannon that always faces straight forward or something along those lines.

I mean that was only in the campaign version, so not including the front gun wouldn't be a crisis.

Well after much cussing, anger, and shouting at youtube, the pelican chase video is up! Beware - the audio is mostly just the pelican engine. We are talking in the background, but you have to REALLY listen for it.

this setVariable ["TEI_HEV_CanCallInAI", true, true];

Use this on a unit's init to allow him to call in AI ODSTs. IIRC, it doesnt work correctly in the hotfix due to misdefined functions. Hotfix for the hotfix!

I have a class to attend, but when I get back, me and a friend are going to boot TEI and RHS to try and find the points where the mods disagree. Depending on how things go, we will be looking to see how to make them compatible without breaking anything. We also have a couple concept missions involving a small amout of UNSC forces assaulting/infiltrating a facility after being displaced by something(forerunner artifact maybe). There will be at least 2 versions, one for coop and one for pvp. I am wondering if anyone can tell me how insurrection does their "pick up intel, auto-mark a postion on the map" system. Wanted to have UNSC marines attack a compound trying to secure a "device" that can help them be relocated. They can then call in ODSTs to either support the compound or secure the device once a location is found. I saw that script for calling in ai, but I need the one for players being able to hotdrop themselves. Since that is already in the template mission, all I need is the insurgency script.

Yep the Falcon in Multiplayer on reach had no cannon on the nose

That was for balancing purposes, but of course I suppose there are different falcon variants with different loadouts too. For instance, with only the under side turret. With only the side machineguns. With both of them. Without any of them. Maybe there was even some with rockets or missiles, but for now there is nothing in the lore that can confirm that.

EDIT:

There is a concept for one of the first old falcon sketches with different variants, one of them with missiles:

if you look closely the concept art has pilot and gunner too. i tried to fit that in the bird but wasnt able too. i think if i tried harder i couldve but i made it a one seater, looked more natural. cant wait to fly it x.x

Hmm... fanon: a gunship Falcon (Hawk? Eagle?) without passenger compartment, but with gunner and wings for rocket and missile launchers, along with underchin gun. Basically what AH-1 Cobra was to Huey.

We'll look into it. I know for a fact it will use the M247 that you posted in the second picture (not the HMG verison in the third.

As for the Falcon, it is extremely likely that it will not have a gun on it. It just wont be possible with how Arma works and really shouldn't. The pilot should not be manning the gun and piloting at the same time. We will definitely use that gun for the Pelican though. So the Falcon will probably be transport only with side mounted machine guns.

For the Scorpion on the other hand...

Or it can just be a forward mounted gun like how the AH-9 has, have it be a 30mm cannon that always faces straight forward or something along those lines.

I mean that was only in the campaign version, so not including the front gun wouldn't be a crisis.

Wow that tank script its awesome! It also works with the warthog lol

And yeah Trooper, that could do too, this way the pilot at least could do something else than just transporting, and would be able to make some damage to other vehicles while the side machineguns cover the infantry from other infantry. I think the turret could be fixed when flying (like the UH-60L Dap with fixed autocannons for example), but could also follow the head movement when in free mode, you know, that mode that allows you to control your head freely to check your surroundings, this way it could move and use the turret too while the falcon is quiet in the air (after all vanilla arma 3 gunships are connected to the helmet too, when the pilot switches to manual fire and moves his head the turret moves too). I think this should do the job, and you already have the falcon model with a turret on it and textured, it would be a shame if you deleted it.

The other option would be to make the turret part half controllable and half UAV, so manual fire enabled - pilot controls the turret. Manual fire disabled - another one controls the turret like if it was an UAV, so for example a marine in the ground can take control of it. Of course side machineguns with their respective gunners are still needed. (like the UH-60 Blackhawk).

Also to increase the number of passengers, as it does not have doors, you could sit in the border of it, like in blackhawks and littlebirds do:

http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc70/streetrally/skyfender/SikorskyUH-60BlackHawk-us-army-airforce-attack-combat-military-helicopter-aircraft1.jpg

And in a couple of pages before:

http://th07.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2014/171/d/8/mv_14b_hornet_by_splinteredmatt-d4etql0.png

I agree with the people that were saying that it would be great if the hornet got a heavier version that loses its transportation capabilities in exchange of having those wings loaded with guided AT and possibly AA missiles. (as it already has guns and rockets like a littlebird by tiself)

https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2801/4091210928_26bd9d5b58.jpg

those wings are similar to the avatar's gunship btw:

http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/jamescameronsavatar/images/a/ab/Scorpion.png/revision/latest?cb=20100329192324

That would fix the issue of not having a heavy gunship dedicated exclusively and effectively to the tank hunting, and only a couple of ''wings'' would have to be added. Plus as you have stated before, you're not going to add more air vehicles such as the sparrowhawk and vulture, but youre going to add the hornet, so it would be simple if you only edited it that way and made a heavier variant. And it still would be the hornet, so it will feel canon.

About this: http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-eridanus-insurrection/images/a-taste-of-whats-to-come-the-unsc-final-dawn2#imagebox

''Spacenavy: Unsure about the functionality of the turrets so far. No MAC gun though. We may have one that is flyable but unsure. It wouldn't be able to do much of anything. ''

That thing is way too big, I can't imagine how we could pilot that, I would compare it to the USS Nimitz addon. In any case, you could change its position attaching it to a vehicle or something, that's how I moved the USS Nimitz, attaching it to a boat. like the uss Nimitz you could walk around, take off from the hangar, etc.

It would be nice if you could use its weapons, not the MAC though, that's just so OP. What could have are AA turrets and maybe an artillery missile system, like cruiser missiles, tomahawks you know. I know UNSC frigates had a lot of missile pods as well as the other ships. That together with CIWS AA turrets would be awesome. For example, we want to strike an insurrectionist base, but they have CIWS AA defenses http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130909170916/halo/images/4/42/HReach-M71Scythe-AAGT_uplift.png Drop the odst, destroy the AA and get out of there before the missiles strike, etc... wonder if drop pods can be shooted down.

Huge mission options and possibilities with this.

I have a request: make it possible to move around in Pelicans cargo, from and to rear "gunners" positions.

Oh true, I forgot you can't change position once you're inside the pelican, we should be able to :)

There could even be a standing position in the rear

Edit:

I remember someone requested a shark texture for the frontal part of the pelican some time ago, found this:

I love this mod and take this opportunity to congratulate all developers ... I have some questions on the helmet model CH-252

in the first images released of 3d models and render initial could be seen clearly on the tab "fixed" the helmet to the head .. why this has been removed? or if you subsequently reinserted?

I wanted to ask if for the same type of helmet will be made various models? with the various attacks that are seen in video games

sorry for my english XD thanks and keep it up

Instead of Camo vairents would it not make snce to use the Drab colours like in the games ?http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110927175106/halo/de/images/9/97/Army_R%C3%BCstung_5.png

or even this style of desert colour ?http://i.imgur.com/l5nKqLH.jpg

The UNSC army uses camo patterns in Halo reach, while in reach the marines used grey suits and also a grey camo variant (similar to Halo 3's marines just more faded) which is going to be included in my 405th expansion to the mod, the army in haloverse is overkill with camo patterns, you can see about 5 alone in reach which is the army's only appearance in the halo games i know of

Actually, The UNSC Army colors used in this MOD are ones that TEI design team designed themselves and the Marines are the colors the marines used on Halo:CEA

All camos used in halo reach

Marine camo from halo:CEA

That being said, I explain here Why the UNSC Marines only come in Olive Green and Drab Gray and the UNSC Army has dozens if not Hundreds of Different Uniform Fatigues

You can say it looks stupid, I don't think anyone here is a Sony employee.

Good news on that Frigate though. Is the HEV pod bay going to be included in it's initial release?

no sadlt not. basically what you will get is a prop for now. something to have in the distance or what not. the frigate is going to be a very time intensive task that will be ironed out throughout a long period of time. however we made a lot of changes in regards to what we envisioned for it. before we wanted players to teleport between rooms. now we will include 3 or 4 floors to play around on, with halways and what not. as we progress we gain knowlegde of modding and limitations and we believe we can pull it off, just with time. just know that this thing will be amazing and you will stand in awe when you fly towards it in a pelican foe the first time :)
