PostSubject: Design a Vehicle Contest!(From Halo Wars Forum)   Tue Aug 21, 2007 4:48 am

Well, I’ve been at the forums for awhile now(some of you waaaay longer) and I can say that, in terms of Halo Wars suggestions, its been dying down. On the plus side, the halo verse section has gotten very popular and there are lots of noobs to yell at!(Notice how its noob, not newb, as in unintelligent annoying forumer)

I’ve decided to make my own random Halo Related contest thingy, the Design A Vehicle Contest!

Here is how it works.

There are a lot of parts to making a useful halo vehicle. You have to choose how much armor, its weapon, whether it has treads or not, but here is a guide to vehicle submitters on how to list their vehicle.

(everything in parenthesis are not part of the vehicle submitting format)

The Vehicle Submitting Format

(Human Only, Covie Vehicle contest held after Human one)



(Step 1)

Name

(Give your vehicle a name, ones that names accurate to their use are better considered for nomination than others)



(Step 2)

Battle Field Function

(Name what it’s battle field role is, i.e. Long Range artillery, Urban Combat, Tank Destroyer, etc.)



(Step 3)

Description

(Give a paragraph or two description of what it looks like, be realistic)

(Make a picture and post it below the description if you want to)



(Step 4)

Size

(There are 5 sizes to choose from, Very Small, Small, Medium, Large and Very Large)

(I will make size comparisons….

Very Small is to Mongoose

As Small is to Warthog.

Medium is to A Modern Day Tank

As Large is to a Scorpion.

Oh, and Very large is comparable to Warhammer 40k Super Heavy Vehicles)



(Step 5)

Movement Method

(Movement methods are Treads, Wheel or Half Track)

(Treads can take the most damage while Wheels go the fastest. Half Tracks are in the middle so go figure)



(Step 6)

Armor

(Armor Comes in Thicknesses and Areas. Areas are

Front, the front of the tank, not the top, not the bottom, the front

Sides, same values for both sides

Back, The back of the vehicle

Top, Only needed for tanks or other "roofed" vehicles

Turret, Only needed for vehicles with turrets)

(That’s F,S,B,T,T when you type out the values)



(Step 7)

Armament

(That means weapons)

(Weapons come in many forms and set ups.)

(Fixed weapons are attached directly to the base of the tank, and can only shoot straight ahead)

(Turreted weapons have 3 different types, 25%<90 degree angle>, 50% and full. You must say for turrets that can only turn partly around what there center is, Either Forward, Left, Right or Back)



(Step Cool

Components

(These are anything that help the vehicle function. It includes objects from Powerplants to power certain weapons to cargo holds to carry infantry and vehicles)



(Step 9)

Total Cost

(How much this thing costs as a whole)

Let’s see what this looks like for a Scorpion (Not necessarily right)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scorpion

Main Battle Tank

"The Tried and True Scorpion has seen multiple conficts and has proven to be effective at both anti vehicle and anti infantry roles in combat."(Its short, I know, I didn’t provide a visual description with it.)

Large

Treads, top speed of 20 MPH(List the top speed here as well)

Heavy, Heavy, Heavy, Medium, Heavy

1 Turreted Medium Cannon, Full

1 Turreted Machine Gun, Full

None

2080$

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

That was a scorpion in the Vehicle Submitting Format (well call that the VSF)

Oh, and any vehicles not in that format will not even be considered. You can submit up to 2 vehicles.



Next, What You Need to Know to Make Your Vehicle

The Tank Chassis

This is the base of the tank.

You have the 5 sizes to choose from

Very Small – 5 slots and 100$ Max speeds of 100 MPH(yes, I’m American and alas I d’t know the metric system very well because I never use it. Maybe some one could PM me the MPH to KPH conversion equation?)

Small – 10 slots and 200$ Max Speeds of 80 MPH

Medium – 15 slots and 400$ Max Speeds of 60 MPH

Large –20 slots and 800$ Max Speeds of 40 MPH

Very Large – 35 slots and 2000$ Max Speeds of 30 MPH

* min speeds can never go below 10MPH*

Choose Wisely, Slots determine how much armor, components and weapons you can put on a vehicle.



Movement Method

Here you pick your movement method, as mentioned before. Here are the details.

Treads – Strong and Durable but slow. – 15 MPH off of max speed

Half Track – Sturdy and hasty. – 10 MPH off of Max Speed

Wheels – Fast, but weak.



Armor

When putting armor on a vehicle you should first determine what the vehicles combat role is, an artillery piece needs less armor than a battle tank after all.

*Note that these values are for one side of armor only*

None – Takes up no space, costs nothing

Light – each side takes up 0.5 space and costs 50$

Medium – each side takes up 1 space and costs 100$ as well as slow down max speed by 1

Heavy – each side takes up 1 space and costs 200$ as well as slow down max speed by 1

Very heavy – each side takes up 2 space and costs 400$ as well as slow down max speed by 1



Here is the biggest list, Weapons

You may be wondering what weapons you can choose from, trust there are a lot.

Starting with the smallest

Machine gun – Basic anti infantry weapon. Takes up 1 space and costs 50$

Dual Machine guns – 2 machine guns hooked together, takes up only 1 space but cost 150$

Chaingun – Advanced Anti Infantry and Anti Air weapon, takes up 1 space and cost 100$

Large Chaingun – A larger, faster spinning chaingun. Takes up 1 space and costs 175$

Auto Cannon – An automatic cannon, like an anti vehicle(and air) chaingun on steroids. Takes 2 space and costs 250$

Small Cannon – Little Larger size rounds(say, 90mm) than the Auto Cannon but shoots a little slower. Takes 2 space and costs 300$

Medium Cannon – Larger yet, moderately good cannon(say, 130mm). Takes up 3 space and costs 350$

Large cannon – Overkill cannon wise(‘bout 180mm). Takes up 4 space and costs 500$

*all cannons come in dual forms that cost twice as much*

Spartan Laser – Requires a component to work but is Heavy Anti Air and Anti Vehicle. Takes up 2 space and 750$

Dual Spartan Lasers - – Requires a component to work but is Super Heavy Anti Air and Anti Vehicle. Takes up 2 space and 1500$

Mortar – A medium ranged Anti Infantry Mortar. Takes 1 space and costs 500$

Siege Mortar – A huge Mortar Used to wipe out infantry and obliterate fortifications. Takes 2 space and costs 750$

Rockets – They come in 3 forms Anti Air(AA), Anti Vehicle(AV) and Long Range Rockets(LRR)



Turreting

This is where weapons get costly space wise

State which way the center of the turrets are of fire is as either Forward(Fwrd), Left(L), Right(R)or Back(B)

25% turreting adds space usage of a weapon by 1 and cost 50$

50% turreting adds space usage of a weapon by 2 and cost 150$

Full turreting adds space usage of a weapon by 3 and costs 400$

* up to two weapons can be dual turreted in a turret which will double the price*



Components

The nifty gear that ends up winning the day, sorta.

Small Fusion Plant – Required for every single Spartan laser. Takes up 1 space

Large FusionPlant – Required for every dual Spartan laser. Takes up 2 space

Small Cargo hold – can hold up to a squad of infantry or small sized vehicle. Takes up 2 space.

Large Cargo hold – can hold up to a few squads of infantry or a large sized vehicle. Takes 4 space

Engine booster – boosts a vehicles max speed by 5MPH(up untill it hits 10 over the size of the vehicles max speed). Takes up 1 space and costs 600$

Weak Shield Generator – Provides a level of shilding equal to that of light armor. Takes up 2 space and cost 600$.

Strong Shield Generator – Provides a level of shielding equal to that of medium armor. Takes up 4 space and costs 800$

Every empty slot decreases its total cost by 2.5%

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Vehicle

Saber

Super Heavy Main Battle Tank

The Saber is a huge Tank, and is heavily armed and armored. With a dual Spartan Laser Turret mounted on near the back of the top of the chassis, a Siege mortar in the front right and a dual machinegun in the front left and on both sides of the chassis, this vehicle can carry out a number of roles.

It is even known to have gone toe to toe with a scarab and win, hey, that’s a lot of power in a package a quarter of a scarabs size.

Very large

Treads, Top Speed of 15 MPH

Very Heavy, Very Heavy, Very Heavy, Very Heavy, Very Heavy

Turreted Dual Spartan Lasers, Full

Fixed Siege Mortar

Turreted Dual Machine Guns, 25% Fwrd

Turreted Dual Machine Guns, side mounted 50% L

Turreted Dual Machine Guns, side mounted 50% R

Large Fusion Powerplant

Engine Booster

Strong Shield Generator

6336.25$

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

That’s all

I know I went off cannon, but that was so that you could be more creative in designing your vehicle.

Good Luck Vehicle Designers

I've posted on HWF aswell, but i also posted it here for all to see

M15 Warthog HALAV
"Hog"- used to descride all Warthog varients.
"Puma"- as it is quick and deadly. ( Don't blame me, blame the ODSTs) This term is used mainly by ODSTs as it is their ground vehicle of choice.

The M15 Warthog HALAV is a heavily armed light attack vehicle used to do quick raids on enemy bases and to quickly reinforce pinned troops, it is best used in small groups and with other "Hog" varients, it is especially good at suppressing enemy units as it has both anti-vehicle and anti-air/unit weaponry. This variant is especially popular with the ODSTs and for escorts for high ranking officers due to the quickness and fire-power they possess. Sargents also seem to have a place in their hearts for it.

In effect this is a GAUSS hog with a small chaingun positioned in the passenger seat with the glass infront of the passenger seat removed so they can shoot in front of the vehicle and to the side

Heavily armed light attack vechile (lol, contradiction in terms i know)
medium-
length- 20 feet
width- 10 feet

Wheels- Max speed- 90 mph while not trying to avoid plasma weaponry

Armour-
Front: Medium
Sides: Medium
Back: Medium

Crew- 3
Driver
Gunner
Passenger Gunner
However in times of need an additional 4 marines my be able to fit onto the back as long as the turret is not used

Weapons
Driver- Ram enemies and vehicles and can honk the horn to annoy them.
Gunner- M70 Gauss Cannon- Updated version of the M68.-360 degree view.
Passenger Gunner- Smaller and lighter version of the M41 Light Anti-Aircraft Gun "Autocannon" seen on the more common Warthog.- 100 degree view if the Passenger Gunner can get it turned past the 90 degree view easily done, but not so easy in the heat of battle.

Extras-
Small shield generator- Can be quickly activated to protect from incoming fire, much like the personnel bubble shield but is more of an oblong shape to sompensate for the HALAVs shape.

Medical drone- Abuilt in medical drone to heal the standard passengers if needs be, can only be used while stationary, no major surgery,if surgery is needed the drone will advise to move to the nearest EVAC unit or MASH and will continue to treat the wounded until it is ordered otherwise.

Nitrous Oxide- A small "nitro" boost to get out of situations quick, but there is a short time when the hogs speed is reduced by 5 mph to compensate for this.

Two small cargo crates- these are used to hold weapons and supplies.
Long enough to hold a "Spartan Laser"
Wide enough to store 2 "Spartan Lasers"

Total cost: Total cost:$2700- I think that is pretty much right, please tell me if it isnt seath
But extras such as leather interior and horns can increase the costs. These are just two things Sargents like to do the M15.
