Drone

Submitted by Fingolfin
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The Drones, commonly known as "Buggers", are a swarming insectoid race featured in the Halo series. While very fragile, they can easily overcome their enemies through sheer speed and numbers. They are capable of flight, but often lands while engaging for increased accuracy and presicion.

*The model includes an alternate animation set in which it flies - you can use it with the storm crow ability, if you put the animation tag "alternateex" on the flying unit.

*The eyes and blue rings on its shell will glow in the dark. It is possible to alpha out the blue rings in the texture if you want to use this as a normal insect. The flying animations could fit a spellcaster unit.

*Comes with attachment points for both hands and feet, head, weapon and chest.

*No weapons are included, you will have to attach these yourself. Just base an ability off "sphere", change "art-target" to the weapon model path, attachment points to "hand, left" (or both hands, if you want to), and give it to the unit. I also have separate gunflash models which have instructions in their respective missile threads. Here is a list of weapons made to go with this:

Needler
Needle Missile
Plasma Pistol
Plasma Round

UPDATE: Added origin and overhead attachments. The reason the two death sounds are different is obviously so that they would fit their respective animation. You cannot have a "thud" in an airborne explosion. They are both insect-like noises.

    Great model!

    2 points.
    1: During the stand 1,2 and 3 animation it is floating a bit
    2: During the walk animation it is on the other hand sunken a bit into the ground.

    This is just based on the 3D viewer though.

    Awesome model!:goblin_good_job: there are many good halo models here, but there are some very important ones that still doesnt exist here, like the elites or grunts. Maybe brutes or some vehicles could be good.

    Both medieval knights and halo models are coming, i assure you. Not sure about flood buildings though, i kinda oppose the idea of that. The elite is next on the line.

    BuT WHY???

    Why would you be opposed to the idea of flood buildings? Why??? :vw_sad:

    Any who this is what I'm Trying to orchestrate. a custom races map(ww3 rules)
    that has 20 custom races.
    i wanna make each race unique and that's why i want the flood in their.

    The story: zerg and flood used to live on the same planet, feeding off one another. A coalition of races known as the covenant from another world opened a portal to the flood/zerg planet in a matter of seconds the explorers were overwhelmed and as was the portal. Quickly, before the last of the explorers were taken they shut off the portal. To no avail the portal was reopened a year later by the flood that infested the explorers. The flood slowly spread to every corner of the planet trying to evade the Zerg that soon followed. With the planet over run, the covenant, through one final effort opened a portal to the great unknown, traveling the waist of beyond they eventually came to Azeroth.
    How every they were followed...

    ok theirs the story the flood race is going to need.

    buildings:
    a haunted gold mine
    a grave mind (town hall 3 tiers)
    one barracks building
    one alter
    one shop
    maybe a small flood pod, that i could use as a farm.

    units:
    simple flood soldier stands on two legs and is melee
    flood ranged unit stands on 2 legs
    that one flood unit from halo 3 the infested hunter i think it had 3 forms one ranged but stationary one that resembled a hunter and one that resembled a strange medium sized dinosaur.

    these models don't to be amazing.
    and sir you are amazing for responding to my desperate cries, thx for reading.
    also, you don't to make these, imagine if you did,..... oooo i get goose bumbs.

    Because I mean, the flood aren't exactly famous for their construction. If you want my suggestion, attach the popcorn to a regular building. It looks surprisingly good, and fits with flood architecture.

    Once again, the flood aren't famous for making unique things. The right attachments of infection forms with a little retexture can get you quite a pretty looking infected.

    Anywho, pretty model!
