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
- etc.

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
- etc.

Here is a full list of more references to Aliens throughout the Halo franchise just for some inspiration:

Creativity is the main element of level design.

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"?
