Give Pilots The Actual Pilot Model

#1
(1) In-game name & Steam ID (can be obtained by the TAB menu in game, or by using steamid.xyz) 

Name: A1C Royal

Steam ID:  STEAM_1:0:155729124

(2)Your suggestion: 

Give the Pilots the actual models they have in the games/lore to increase the lore friendliness of the Air Force and to better distinguish them from other Battalions. 

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition: 

Halo pilots have always looked distinctive. Currently the model the pilots use is just an ODST Model with unique helmet options. I feel like changing the pilot models to the actual models that the in game Halo pilots have would, Greatly distinguish pilots from ODST and other battalions, Free up the current pilot model body grouping options for ODST allowing them to be more customizable in their helmet and armor choices, and allowing the air force to be more lore friendly.


Real world pilots have patches to distinguish themselves from other squadrons and since a system like this doesn't exist on the server the color of the pilots uniform could distinguish them from squadron to squadron quickly and efficiently. Currently the Air Force has two squadrons Echo and Phoenix, Echo is used primarily for Pelican operations which include Transport and Gunship use. While Phoenix is used primarily for Hornet and Falcon operations which include Transport and Air to Ground missile support. The models I have picked have two colors Green which could be Echo's and another which is Black which could be Phoenix's my logic is that Green is a much more support oriented color while Black seems to be more attack oriented which fits the roles of the squadrons nicely, which could also help easily distinguish the pilots of the squadrons at a glance and set the Air Force apart from other battalions.

Model names: 

models/jessev92/halo/unsc_h3_marine/pilot.mdl     (This is the green pilot model)

models/jessev92/halo/unsc_h3_odst/pilot.mdl         (This is the black pilot model)

(4) List what you think (if any) could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added: 

General confusion on what the Airforce looks like (The model change could confuse some people for a time on what pilots look like)

The Black pilot model has more body grouping options then the Green pilot model.

I can upload screenshots of these later on so people can make a more educated decision. The only negative is I'm pretty sure they're the lower quality models so they might stand out and look bad, but I'm not 100% I only have a semi formed image in my head.

I remember when I helped pick out the AF model back when we had transitioned to the ground base. The current AF model was the most unique model for the AF and its... Well its cool but its not an actual AF model, picking a new model AF model that looks like the actual halo counter parts would be amazing! Also we currently have an actual halo AF model in the game I think.

Actually I just hopped into single player and did it! If you need anymore angles or anything let me know! Pictures below.

These models come from this model pack on the workshop:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f...=367752833

and the names of the models are:

Marine (Green Pilot): models/jessev92/halo/unsc_h3_marine/pilot.mdl

ODST/Air Force (Black Pilot): models/jessev92/halo/unsc_h3_odst/pilot.mdl

(Just a note before you look at these I will say the Marine (Green Pilot) fist/first person view of the model is lower quality then the ODST/Air Force (Black Pilot) Model however luckily the black model has more body groupings!)

I, am just going to say. The pilot part of this (to my understanding what the suggestion of as mainly for) is good, so uh, +1
