A lot of times people start making a map and then just don't finish, that is either because they are doing it for fun and they get bored, they get stuck, they leave halo, they can't get all the people to help that they need to help, or possibly maybe it is because they are doing it for free and they just don't want to finish... Would you be willing to make a map not to hardcore in terms of detail for $25? I know I would...

When I started working on Victory Mapping Team's Map (which I can't remember the name since it was so long ago) I put together a great team who worked well together... until I stopped logging on and checking on progress and eventually I had to do everything myself and I can't model for crap so I stopped it.

I have $25 and that is it to give to whoever can make me a simple map its huge but doesnt have to be very detailed just want to be playable as in can get it in game with a sky and everything. Don't have to make your own vehicles and stuff if you don't want we can just use already created vehicles. I can't animate, skin, model... all I know is I know what I need, i have 25 dollars to give you and I can populate it if you can get it ingame... so if you are up for the challenge:

This is what our map was like before it disappeared:


This is the design behind what I would like it to look like...

The Pink is underground tunnel this is half of it its basically symmetric so same on other half...

And here is another over the top picture...


I might be able to give you $30 if you can actually finish it and it gets in game(a gift from me to you haha) ;)

well first off i hope someone either helps you with it or does it for free not for money, i would help you with this but i have a little thing i have been working on and i would like to see my map done first before i take on anything else, sorry if this seems selfish but if i don't finish this map then what would have been the point in me starting it in the first place (considering i started a biped model a while ago but lost the max file and if truth be told, the interest too). i like the plans you have drawn up for your idea and i think it would make for a good map.

Then do it for free, all I am saying is im willing to "trade" by dollar bills for your map its like craigslist its not illegal. I would make the map myself but... seeing as though I have tried to make maps since 2006 and failed every time I don't see a need in me trying again. Haha, yes this isn't my first account b4 this one it was sparton534 or Black alpha or blackalpha1 and a few others lol

You do not know who might offer help to the OP, so how could you possibly know what software he/she would be using? also microsoft would not give a dam.
Stop jumping to dumb conclusions please.

Explain to me exactly why this would be illegal.
I see it like this.

You want a model made.
I make the model in a free 3d modeling software.
I send you a compressed file and you pay me for it.
Then you send it back to me and i make it a map for free.
whats wrong with that?

He is asking for the model.
If it is so illegal, why was i paid to model and texture for a Microsoft Cloud Campaign ad?
They paid me for the models.... just like this guy wants to pay for the model.
Somehow they didn't give a damn what i modeled it in as long as I gave them there requested format.

Just sayin.

Making a model in a free program that requires no license to make profit with, and only sending the model file would be fine. Once you cross the lines of using software that requires licensing or compiling the file into the engine do you start treading into territories that would be considered not entirely legal.

Shark Tank is the same thing, just the American version (and isn't Dragon's Den Canadian?).

Haha well some people make things for free and so if those that do it for free usually will accept the 30 dollars as an incentive to actually finish the map then im willing to do it. If you dont want to do it for that much why did you post? Just sayin and did he send you the games physically or just torrent them and send? :P lol

But Dragons Den has people offering money, not taking money. :P Btw, do you live in Wales?

Anyway, as long as you're only paying for the model, it should be entirely legal. Just don't announce it as paying for the map itself, as Halo's licensed by Microsoft.

I may try and make this map, but if I do I don't want your money. I'll let you know if I decide to.

Wait, it disappeared? As in you no longer have the model?

This makes the offer incredibly easy for me i guess.

Instead of wasting 30 dollars on letting someone else do this, who could still be potentially unreliable, forgetting, and give you results you don't want, you could watch a 30 minute tutorial to learn how to model.

Like mama always said, if you want things done right, do it yourself!

Just take your time and practice. My first map was literally a box, with black lightmaps (didn't understand how to put even in a sky correctly), and it would exception a bunch too.
