 Aco Delta Covenant (05/04/13)*
Image

[= Aco Delta Covenant =]
[ Ae-koh _ Dell-tah _ Cuv-en-ant ]

====-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------====

The Aco Covenant is a mechanical faction born by a lone AI, and populated by that lone AI, only called as Aco, or The Aco.

The creation of the Artificial Intelligence is of unknown origin and source. The only information known between the creator and Aco is, through programming, the formal agreement of a test to self sustain as a conscious AI without intelligent organismic supervision. Aco started off with certain restrictions and needs, such as a common type of liquid that was needed every period of time and to keep away from a form of gas to substitute as survivability. Suddenly, over hundreds of centuries after the assumed extinction of the creators, Aco had developed a way to inhibit its survival bounds, but then started to experience unusual emotions. Soon after, Aco had made contact with other organic intelligence and immediately felt paranoia and anxiety, thinking their pressence was to terminate Aco for cheating its test, leading Aco to fear for its own 'life'. Aco started to produce weapons and bodies to hide behind and never stopped manufacturing, but over time, Aco was running out of resources to use. It sent the "Delta" portion of its defences out in the empty space to search for more resources to use, and eventually, Delta then came across the Tradestar Midas, along with a planet. Cautious as Aco was, it felt neutral with Midas, and soon learned that the planet was exactly what the Aco Covenant needed.

[=THERMATIC=]

Thermatic (or Thermal) Weapons have magazines that work on heat. When reloaded they start at loading temperature and over time lose temperature allowing for more shots before overheating and needing to reload.
(Only exception is the VLS-Kilo which uses no magazine and only has the temperature tolerance for one shot before cooldown)

[=BALLISTIC=]

Ballistic Weapons use normal ammunition and are reloaded at their magazine's max round count.

This looks beutiful. totally teesting. be back shortly with details.

EDIT: As a whole the mod is Fantastic. I love the explosion effects. I have to say that the M-Golf and the M-Oscar drones are amazing. I like how you got them to hover in mid air without just being a set distance from the ground. I especially like how the M-Golf is able to go from a little above ground to full hover. I'm confused on how the Charlie Free Missiles act differently on the M-Golf and the M-Foxtrot. (nice names by the way) :cool: . You guns aren't really too effective though. I was testing them on the Firing range Scene and most of the rounds did little damage to Dafred clones. The only ones that deemed effective were the November and the lima only due to their large clip and/or high fire rate. Also good job on the Miko. Its not terrain rapey yet it gets the job done. Oh and speaking of terrain rape your Mecha P Delta rapes the top level of regular soil. he walks right through it.

-Me :D

Particle effects are incredible, sprites are fantastic, the units are amazing, that goddamn guardian drone's AI is awesome, and the weapon sprites, effects, and animations are.. I need more words.

Bottom line, this is great.

This is the best. The best.

Only complaint: The 6-shot semi rifle is a bit weak for being a 6-shot semi rifle.

you sir, could scoop poop into a fun mod; the sprites are pretty and the effects are mind blowing.
My only complaint is the item descriptions, for one thing, they don't exist.

Yeah, I started to notice that too! After playing some scenarios through with these actors/weapons, I've noticed the game crashes if I restart the scene or head to the main menu.

Fantastic mod, the support drone alone is worth the download!
However, i've noticed two bugs: When an actor the support drone has "locked onto" enters a craft, the game crashes and on the walker, you seem to have mixed up the Lock Misiles and the Free Rockets.

Knew I forgot something else.

The Missiles on Golf were missnamed. Leading to the confusion with ammo types on Foxtrot and Golf.

One thing I was doing when making the mod was I was always changing the preset names of the actors but never remembered to change them in the scripts too, so now the lock missiles on Foxtrot work properly.

The crashing bug for when Oscar is locked onto a friendly that enters a craft has been fixed.

I don't know whats causing the crashes when loading other scenes in detail but I know that when I spawned a MO with a script that works with an Attachable (like Golf's engine or the VLS' cover plate) that's when it crashed as soon as I loaded another scene. If none of those MO's got into the scene then I could load into another scene no problem.

I'll have to look more into that, cause I got no idea why it's causing it to crash like that.
When in Doubt, C4. Fixed.

The upload sites don't seem to be uploading properly right now so the bug fix update will have to wait for now.

Thanks for the feedback though, guys. You're all awesome.

Mod is Campaign friendly too btw.

Ha found yours UAV have great VBIED potiential.
Just pack it up with couple of bombs, it's engine is very powerfull so can fly easily even overencumbered.
And when you just touch terrain with "nose" even on low speed(no matter loaded or not) it gibs releasing payload.
I found it quite annoying to gib so easily at first but then looked at "Bombs" and... MUAHAHAHAHAH :D
And it's gun is too weak in comparision to rockets, either nerf them or make MG better.

How did you get bombs in the Drone? I thought you can't put things in ACrabs inventory through the buy menu.

I'll up the RoA for the vulcan too.
