Hi guys! I'm new to Halo moddng but I know that you can't edit an existing map. I'm searching for a way to play with different skin/model for Master Chief on existing maps and I came out with an idea: Can you replace one of the multiplayer colors with another skin or even 3D model for Master Chief? Also can you change a weapon's skin with a better one?
Thanks in advance!

P.S.: Sorry if I have any mistakes - I'm writing in a hurry.

Yes you can edit existing maps, and you can swop bitmaps, and almost anything else you can think of.
You can make new models, but you can not have a specified different model for blue/red teams in multiplayer maps.
Read the sticky thread titled "read this before asking questions" or something like that.
Read all the sticky threads in both CE sections of the forum.
Dont be shy to post for help either.

Well I read the "read before you ask" thread and I'm confused
"these tags CAN NOT be added to existing map (*.map) files and must be compiled into the maps during creation" - then what can I edit in an existing maps? I just want to change the model for the player character and some of the weapons and as far as I know they're tags too.
How can I edit this?

wait do you want to get skins like hog skins? or do you want a complete biped al togehter?

biped skins would just change chiefs color and look. while a new biped u would need spaien for that.

I was thinking of Close Quarters Battle Armor (CQB) from Halo 3. Are there any skins and bipeds for it? Some assault rifle skins or bipeds will also be nice ;)

ok so you want to "mod" a map.

this is what you do get the halo Editing Kit (HEK) it comes w/ spaien gurella and tool. then you download the CQB from the site and add it in the map.

I have HEK and I've already downloaded some tutorials. I was searching for CQB in the site but I didn't seem to find it. Can you help me?

Thanks! It looks perfect! I'm going to read some of the tutorials and look at the files and I'll write if I don't understand something.

You need to download both the one before it and put it together then again it's really old.

Are you talking for the armors? Because the updated one seems to have all the files from the previous one and even more.

P.S.: How to open *.map files?

You don't open the .map files, you will have to open .scenario's. You can get these by ripping a map with HEK+, and when you've done that, you can open the .scenario for that map.

I downloaded HEK+ from the site but when I run the setup it says I need .NET Framework. I updated it but the message is still the same. Can someone rip the .scenario file from the green screen map from the site, please?

@omfgroflz I found a way to install HEK+. I'll send you a PM. I opened the green screen map and used Map Explorer but couldn't find the .scenario file. Where is it located?

It's normally in the levels folder, but technically, it can be anywhere.
