Read through the readme before you post any questions or comments to make sure that they're not already addressed. Links are at the bottom of the post.

I also accidentally left ThePlauge off the credits list; he's responsible for the new HUD pickup icons.

a10 can be found at http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=5436
a30 can be found at http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=5476
a50 can be found at http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=5508



-New pickup icons have been added, along with unique ones for weapons without new models (a letter will denote its function, e.g. Plasma Rifle + B for Plasma Beam).
-The Plasma Burst has been further nerfed; it's rate of fire has been slightly decreased.
-The Plasma Spread no longer has a zoom function and its rate of fire has been increased, with its heat output and power reduced to compensate.
-The Battle Rifle's rate of fire has been increased.
-Assault Rifle ammo pickups now award three extra clips, and SMG pickups give you two.
-The Pistol has new animations.
-The Assault Rifle & Battle Rifle now use the reload-empty (clip depleted) animation exclusively. Halo will use the same reload time regardless of true animation length, and my animator refuses to lengthen the reload-full animations, so this is the best way I have of making do.

-Marines have had their health and damage resistance increased even more.
-Jackal shields are slightly more resistant to Plasma weapons.
-Precision weapons now do more damage to Hunters.
-Elite and Spartan shields will now increase in brightness as they come closer to popping.

Particle Effects
-The Fuel Rod Gun has a new particle effect.
-Elite shield depletion effect has been cut down to be far more clean and conservative; it was way, way too overdone for such a simple and frequent occurance.
-Free-floating plasma residue (e.g. from the Plasma Grenade) now has gravity, giving it a more substantial impression.
-Various other tweaks and optimizations.



Bungie/Gearbox - For the obligatory.
CMT - The SMG & Impaler's model, skin, and animations, the Elite & MC models and skins, the Jackal shield skins, the Plasma Pistol's animations, the Plasma Rifle's skin, and a couple of sprites.
CtrlAltDestroy - The SMG's sound (ripped from Halo 3).
Gamma927 - The old Pistol animations.
Flibitijibibo & Inferno - The new Covenant weapon sounds.
ICEE - The Battle Rifle, Assault Rifle, & new Pistol animations and exporting/tweaking teh lag's animations.
teh lag - The Sniper Rifle and Plasma Rifle's animations.
F.E.A.R. - The base for the blood decals.
You - For downloading and supporting this mod.


Enjoy, and tell your friends! With more interest comes quicker releases and fewer bugs; help make ASCM as good as it can possibly get.

The next release will be the last one. It'll contain all 5 maps in the mod (a10-b40), each with all the improvements and custom content added over the past two months of production. Since I'll have to make sure every single map works, rather than just a single one, I might take three weeks (rather than two) to get it out, but I'll do so under the goal of leaving absolutely nothing less than perfect.

I am always loving those explosions.
By the way, I think I agree with Hydrogen here.

I agree with hydrogen and mooseguy. you don't have to do the ENTIRE campaign(that would be cool though). You should just do one level so we can all see how these guns work against the flood(and sentinels).

Please do the full one, I want to fight flood with the plasma spread and evisorator, and have good mods of keyes, two betrayles, and the maw.

On the matter of this new one, it was very good. I would have prefered more plasma spreads and evisorators though, as well as a flame througher (b30 seems to be the perfect level for it). The flame througher could come from CMT SPv2, with their permission.

P.S. if you can't do the entire campain, atleast do one of them with the flood, preferably two betrayls since it doesn't have any mods that are not super exceptiony.

Just make sure the Battle Rifle doesn't get exclusively used like it sometimes does in Halo 2.
personally I liked the original version with its low fire rate.
