The Battle for Snowtorngrove has begun, with Red Spartans vs. Blue.

You must be very careful traversing the cavern tunnels because there are some beings living there who would love to send you down to their friends who dwell in the deep pits below!

Ah, my mistake, I was seeing the shields (which are blue) and got confused.

I think it would be much nicer if you simply made each team their respective color, and if you feel they would look boring, use this:

It's a Mysterion AI map, not just a crappy one. I'll give you a hand, Mysterion, your AI mods are some of the best, because you actually put thought into them, and I love to read the little backstories you give in the description while I'm downloading the map.

I could release it today, but have a few things left to tweak. My goal is to make normally empty multiplayer maps that I like, playable solo, but not single player type. Though I enjoy playing them, the thing with single player maps is that they always end the same way, and then you rarely play them again.

An AI map needs to be such that you want to come back for more. I like to include "Easter Eggs" so that after playing it several times, you will stumble upon something that you never knew you could do before, such as the hidden portals to the huge desert in "Desert Floodwar". I typically like large maps since they allows you to explore, and create more things to discover.

My next map mod is already under development, but was set aside over a year ago. I have learned quite a few things since, and can now include some of the ideas I wanted to use then, but didn't know how to do. This mod will be an epic battle with marines being transported to a large central fight with the Covenant.

I see others do this as well and I am not being argumentative or demeaning but am looking for a serious answer as to what is the actual importance of making a post in a thread you think will be locked saying nothing but “in before lock” ? I just do not understand and am hoping someone could explain it to me.

The following reasons are what I can deduce:

-They feel a sense of accomplishment or achievement, as stupid as their act is
-They believe it's 'funny'
-To mark that they were in the thread, and so people see them as the last post when they look at the thread from the forum home, therefore making them feel 'important' or 'known'

Any one of them or all of them, really.

can you make it mp and then people who wanna play it sp can just enter the map name into dev and others can play ctf and stuff on it,because I think it's fun to play ctf against an army of ai,because multiplayer games without ai don't have as big of conflicts

Agree, and I enjoy them as with the original Halo which is a single player Campaign. The mp mods, however, lend themselves to more RPG type gaming. Being as large as it is, I would love to mod RPG 6, but unfortunately it is protected. You could place AI encounters all over that map and spend most of the day exploring/fighting.

If a Sheep jumps off a cliff, the rest will follow.

It's just an internet meme created, then everyone followed that persons style thinking it's funny.

The reason i said that was because as someone said, it's become more of a meme, and usually on these forums i just say\think it quite automatically. When I first came to this thread i was under the impression that this was just one of those threads where someone tries something, posts a few WIP images, and is never heard from again.
I didn't truly mean i was in before an unforeseen "lock" but what i meant by that was, that i predicted this thread would simply die.

Not exactly, Dennis asked a simple question, and yet again, the immaturity of some members sprouted out and they had to continue it for a bit, and make useless posts, like the one above yours (Yes, I'm lookin' at you, Xel :P).

Quick question: I see you have a Famas in your map, alongside the stock Halo 1 tagset (including the AR). So, do you have your Famas working as a 'Battle-Rifle' type weapon or is it just a swap-out of the AR like I've seen many many times before?

The Famas is working like a battle rifle I suppose, but more powerful, and with a click on the mouse a scope pops up.

I was going to dismiss this as the average crappy AI mod made on a decent map when I spotted Mysterion's name under the topic author. From the pics, I can tell its not bad, really. Just a suggestion, but you might want to try improving your AI a little; make them a little more lifelike. It also appears from the pics (I might be wrong) that your AI have little or no concept of cover, they just simply crouch and blindly fire at you.

^agree with Polamee.

ps. can you give the Famas a reticle? Sure, it may have one if you zoom in, but i prefer no-scoping with an AR-type weapon and a reticle does help.

A way to make AI smarter is to use guarding at guard position and to not just put firing positions everywhere; instead, put them in strategic locations at least a few feet from each other.

Does it matter? I got his point, and if you guys are too stupid to get it because of a little mistake... wow. Notice how I only come on to watch and laugh at what most of you do and say to each other. It's funny watching this community fail.

Now, I am going to sit back and laugh at all the responses attempting to flame me.

Edit: Then see what Dennis decides to do. Sorry Dennis, it is just so entertaining that I can't hold it back anymore, I have to say something.

Edit 2: To stay on topic, this is one of the reasons I wish I could play Halo CE again.
