Hello Halomaps. I'm sure you're all wondering several things:
1.) WTH is the title?
2.) Why is the Mod not out?
3.) WTF is this thread anyways?
4.) Why do I ask all these questions blankly inside my head where no one will hear them?

The answer to these four question lies in the title, which is the answer to question 1.) HCE: ODST.

This is a mini-series to be released before ODST is. It is a side-story and captures a few of the elements that ODST includes. Oh and also you'll be an ODST, if you couldn't catch that. The story is right after truth's jump and before the Elite Uprising, so the Elites are still your common enemy. This mini-campaign marks a side story the first day out of three (the third begins Halo3) during the course of Halo2. So Dark, what music should we expect? Halo2 music to be exact. Why am I answering these questions? Because you can't.

There will be 3-4 campaign missions in this mini-campaign. No, they are not jointed. You'll download them separately. Why am I doing this? Because I can. Now, what am I using as the BSPs? Any human map I can. I have the first level practically finished and the second level is a slight filler level as you go into the night. The third-fourth levels will be sheer action and will heat up fast. To say the least, your allies won't be in the first two level, but in the last two.

So where are the pics? There are none. Why? Because I have that ability. No seriously why? Because.....FP isn't nearly done. Here is what needs to be finished between now and the 21st:
-FP Arms (I'll beg for a Counter strike rig)
-Camera adjustments; the "I'm not big anymore!" effect.
-Scriptings of the rest of the levels.
-ODST HUD (I know you have it)
-Player speed, jump height, and fall damage.
-An actual plotline for the 3rd, 4th level.
-About one more BSP to finish the campaign.

So wow, a lot to get done in 20 days. Yeah, maybe. This campaign is as pending as it is possible, so don't lose faith in this. Also, If you're wondering WTH it is the weekend of the 21st (which is a Monday) it is because I have no school/homework. If you want this as a reality, then help with whatever you can on the list above. Preferably the ones that don't involve Guerilla. As we draw nearer, I'll post my own field guide and other crap to keep you from finding my personal info an rioting at my home. I hope this gets done.

Yes, I have a Silenced SMG and an ODST Pistol both. No need to worry about weapons. If anyone could help, it'd be with a possible BSP.

First one will change automatically with the biped because the camera attaches to the "head" marker I believe.
Second is all in the globals tag under "player information"

Dang you I had this exact same idea except I really didn't care for the canon and was going to throw in just random stuff I thought would be cool (brute rifles and what not). Though I was planning on a different setup

I'll be looking forward to it.. There's not really anything I'd know how to help with.

Really hope you get the help you need, this'll be the first custom campaign with an actual story.

Awesome. Been waiting for a mini-campaign to come out, since i'm losing faith in CMT SP V2 and all the other dying campaign mods.

I think the Flood campaign will still come out. But SP V2 is just.. starting to look a lot less likely after all the moaning and hissy fits.

All the remaining Elites on Earth left on Regret's carrier. That is why there are none in H3 ODST. Your story breaks canon.

The Community Mod never ended. Who says these lies?

Kardde, there is no possible freaking way ALL of the elites could have been removed from Earth. Also, it's like it's been said 9001+ times: this is not Halo Canon Edition. Now if anyone would like to donate Brutes to correct this pointless, erroneous error, than be my guest.

Just animate and re rig the brutes that are already on halomaps.

Why the hell does everyone spell my name wrong in one way or another.

Also: There weren't that many Elites on Earth. There weren't that many Covenant on Earth, for that matter. There were only 13 ships in Regret's fleet, and Regret's carrier was the only one that actually made it to Earth. The only Covenant forces that actually made landfall were the crew of Regret's carrier. A lot of the Elites were killed by UNSC forces; very few remained.

So yes. There is a possible freaking way ALL of the Elites could have been removed from Earth.

Canon is actually something bungie itself respects at all other than what they have established through the games. and they generally use it to fit their games.

Such as the brute occupation of New mombasa, everyone wondered: Where are the elites in odst? So bungie spat out some canon to quiet everyone down, that is generally how bungie uses it. Then there are the books, which I generally don't care what they say.

The books are beside themselves.

I finished adjusting speed for the ODST today. Now all that is left is the player height, which I nearly have finished and health, which is currently obnoxious to no end. If anyone can help me with that, then that'd be great. If all else fails, i'll just up the Damage Multiplier to where you're in a -blam!- load of trouble in some scenarios.

I have also mapped out the next level of the campaign, although it will really be a lot more straight forward then you think. It's basically more or less a Library level (not in gameplay but in Plot) that just fills you in (not really).

I went over music today and I have a few tracks down, including one from Halo Wars. I'll let more info on it later, but music is probably going the most difficult part of this campaign, even more than the Cutscenes.

Halo Wars is a strategy game. Its music is more quiet and subtle than that of an FPS, because strategy games are not very fast-paced. I hope you picked a good one, because there aren't many that would fit than well with a shooter.

My suggestions for the soundtrack if you are using the halo wars soundtrack are:
Track 6 -Just Ad Nauseam (Some Battle)
Track 7 -Unusually Quiet (Some part with stealth elites)
Track 12 -Status Quo Show (Battles/Cutscenes)
Track 24 -Under Your Hurdles (Some part with stealth elites or if one of your main allies dies)
Add some original halo 1 music = Awesome!
imo

You can't increase damage multipliers unless you also do alot of unnecessary math with the enemies
