 [WIP] NovaMind [Updated to B27]
Image


The NovaMind Corporation specializes in heavy duty troops for zero atmosphere combat. Unfortunately our current line up only consists of the NovaMind light and medium clone and assorted weaponry.


ALL TEST FOOTAGE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED OUTDATED, WILL GET AROUND TO FIXING AT SOME POINT


Test footage of the Star Armaments SN-15 Anti Spacesuit Carbine

Image


Ideally used against heavy spacesuit units such as our own. The SN-15 will chew through most anything encountered in normal conflict.


Test footage of the Garrett light machinegun


Image


The Garrett LMG was designed for resolving riots. Or otherwise getting rid of undesirable crowds of lightly armored organics. As such it chews right through anything unarmored.


Test footage of the Johnson Railgun


Image


The Garret Railgun was designed for incapacitating shuttles in one shot by puncturing all the way through it and hopefully killing whoever inside who isn't wearing a spacesuit. It has proved to be a awesome weapon on the ground too. However it is hideously expensive


Test footage of materials for armor.

Newer composite materials are used in current models and as such they can withstand a lot more punishment


Test footage of the NovaMind Mediums Anti Air missile launcher


Image


The NovaMind Medium has preequipped shoulder mounted Anti Air missiles. Originally designed for use against enemy space fighters, they have proved to be effective against normal aircraft as well. Activated by triple tapping sharpaim or the pie menu depending on control setup


WIP note: I still need to add another actor or two and a few more guns. We'll see if I can get around to doing this at some point

Zip version for people who prefer that

Roon3 - Made the script that made me able to use icons for my actors

Update[10-06-12]:
Updated to B27, I think.
Apparently changed the SN-15 at some point.
Changed how the Anti Air Missile, that the Medium has, works so that it hopefully is less retarded. Also fixed problem of not being able to fire correctly when rotated or lying down. It will now fire the right way if prone (right into the ground).

Why is there a windows hourglass cursor in one of them?
Also, I love the copious blood effects.

.zip is just the standard - can open it with the "Stuffit expander" (which I think comes as standard on Macs, i never downloaded it knowingly)

Will test ASAP.

Stuffit does .rar files, and 7zip has basic support. (On windows anyway. Not sure about the mac version, I have stuffit.)
I kinda think that .zip or .7zip ought to be be the DR standard compression format, but it's a sensitive issue.

As for the mod, I like the actor's sprites a lot, especially the funky antenna.
The carbine feels a lot like a rocket-shotgun.

Ah, thanks for the info.

In my opinion, there definitely should be a standard compression format (.zip) - but I think if we go into that, we'll be opening a nasty can of worms.

No one cares about compression or decompression formats because there's a program to open all three major ones on all the major operating systems.

So cry more, macfags.

Oh yeah cool mod p3lb0x, love the rokkit pistols.

Well, that statement is incorrect - as obviously people do.
Anyway, it's off topic and I did say his would start - sorry for drawing you in.

Also, sorry for bringing it up.

These actors seem very solid, I love them. This is a brilliant mod, I expect you'll be updating it quite a bit?

Actually, I expect to forget this and then sometime in a month or two remember it and make another actor. But we'll see how it goes. Also, it would be sweet if you find something wrong somewhere if you told me about it.

Yep, done that already :D

I just made an activities file using these guys, but they don't fire a single shot. They keep advancing towards me but without firing. I did arm them with SN-15s and it might be because they're offhand weapons. I'll try them with the Garett
