Thread title says all. Has anyone seen or heard of anyone working on some kind of mod for Halo: Custom Edition that is inspired by the film "Aliens". I dig some digging and couldn't really find anything, but I think it's a great idea. Halo CE has many similarities between the film and I think it would make for an awesome experience.
Sounds could be recorded from the film and replace existing ones:
- Motion tracker > Motion sensor
- Assault Rifle > Pulse rifle
Models could be altered to mimic Aliens variants:
- Flood Infection Form > Alien Facehugger
- Flood Combat Form > Alien Xenomorph
- Maybe a Queen Alien Boss
to replace the Carrier form and behave similar to a Hunter.
- Sgt. Johnson > Sgt. Apone
- UNSC Marines > Colonial Mariens
Here is a full list of more references to Aliens throughout the Halo franchise just for some inspiration:

I've always had that idea pop into my head, and it could work out perfectly fine if someone put effort into it. But seeing that Aliens: Colonial Marines will practically be what you are asking for, it would be a bit of wasted time.
HOWEVER, it is a good idea and would work very well in Halo if someone implemented it correctly.
It wouldn't be a bad idea of combining "Aliens" with the actual Halo canon. It could work out too: Stationed base on a forerunner planet => Forerunner structure discovered, but it holds flood specimens => Marines come in to investigate => Discover that the colony was taken over by the flood.

Don't you think this would work out better for the "facehugger"?
