    I agree with this theory.

    I have always though of the Skaarj as much like the Grasshoppers in AntZ

    seems that bees only have to feed a certain bee differently from others and it forms into a queen bee, the the skaarj feed a pupae different, it would turn into a queen, plus why the skaarj have all these experimentation labs.

    I always found that Skaarj were a bit Alien/predator Rip off.

    Skaarj look bit like predator, with that huge wristblades and bodys, and the theory that pupuas are facehuggers, (no cherstbuster) and skaarj are like the Xenemorph rank, but like predators, and there is that queen again

    or maby I am just a bit 2 avp obsessed 2 think that ;)

    Maybe there isn't a Skaarj homeworld anymore, perhaps it got rendered uninhabitable from either constant violence amonst clans, or their technology destroyed the ecosystem of their homeworld? Either that, or I go with the jungle world covered in technology theory.

    Megaqueen...

    MegaQueen: Huge queen that shoots shock balls that erupt in shock combos. Lays queen eggs and, when it is about to die, lays a megaqueen egg.
    Queen Pupae are huge eight legged normal pupaes that fire enegry from their mouths.
    And thats the view from Bane.


    P. S. : Imagine how huge the megaqueen is.....
    :eek2:

    She sure is :O)

    The standard attack of this big momma is shooting 6 green projectiles at you. They look like green shockballs, but explode like warhead missiles do.

    Normally it has 35-50k health, iirc. Megaqueen is part of Utlmarine (Utlnp-ut lity-Rtnp converted to UT coop)

    But if you play this with an altered Utlmarine.u file (the one from Unreal arcade look for the "talen hunter coop v 1.00 or Ut-lity napali coop v4.15 final. Requirer oldskool), she has three stages of attacks. And she has twice as much health.

    Taking down a Megaqueen can be a real pain.. in the arse :B

    Yeah Neo , I has the same idea when i beginned my mappack :

    A soldier send to Napali from rescue some scientist who did research on the Skaarj ,
    unlucky , after your arrived , the skaarj are killed your team and put you and some others in prisons . During a battle between skaarjs and human rebels , you find a way to escape the prison . After navigate on the surface of Napali , you find a teleporter who transport you on the extreme north of the planet . IN place , you are informed that a skaarj ship come with troops on napali . You infiltrate this ship for return to the skaarj homeworld ....

    Its just the beginning of my idea , anyway , i have already did 6 maps , and i want to do 14-15 in total ( i have also the autorization of Drevlin to use some old unfinished maps he have made .)

    I actually work on the 6th map and it rest some others to do . The end of the pack will be the skaarj homeworld planet with organic buildings and installations , darkened bases and some others ideas i have .

    I think it would be more fun, if you could play as a skaarj(trooper) :O)

    For once, feel what it's like seeing the world through Skaarj eyes.
    Something like that.

    Maybe a rebellion.

    -A fraction of skaarj isn't too happy with the constant lust for colonising planets and rebels.

    -Infrastructure of the planet is crumbling as a civil war has started on the skaarj planet. It's one army of skaarj (favouring the warlords) vs. the other (favouring the mega/queens.)

    -You are a "police" skaarj. A psychotic skaarj is on a rampage, slaying tons of noob scare. Your job is too find the maniac, and bring him in doa.

    -You are a skaarj returning from a mission on Napali/Xidia whatever.
    Somehow you get the feeling they're not too happy about your performance (most of your men have died and you've lost to a bunch of weak humans/nali.) and now there's a bounty on your head.
    You must flee, and make it for a certain skaarjbase which has a new class of stealth fighter. You've had some basic info on how to pilot these thing before (work this out later) and these might be your ticket to freedom.

    Some random ideas :O)


    DerdaK2rot, man .. you mapwhore :D

    Is that an Operation Na Pali thing? Because it sounds ridiculous to call anything "Scare".

    But what if it's a scary skaarj? I think it's justified calling it a scare in such case!
