Released - December 2012
Updated - August 30th, 2013 YouTube - H2MT Outskirts ODST Mod Preview ABOUT
ODST Bipeds for Marines and Player Characters on Campaign scenario Outskirts (Old Mombasa).
The ODST player character biped is only viewable in Third Person. Thus I have provided two versions of the Campaign and a list of recommended applications. The other Campaign variant is the same except for a few minor changes, specifically the player character remains the Master Chief.
I used Gravemind 1.6B to make the changes, unfortunately the application has many faults such as some fields will not appear after viewing other fields first. Also many values are incorrect or in the wrong places. Thus I used the following two applications to verify the settings.
-Entity (H2x) was used to study the original map in its unmodified XBox incarnation.EntityHalo 2 XBox maps
-The unlocked Guerilla New (H2v) was also used to study original scenario source in its PC incarnation.H2MT H2EK Unlocked - Enhanced Edition03a_oldmombasa.scenario
Then Mr. Mohawk v1.2 was used to swap the player's biped to that of an ODST Marine.
Mohawk was used for the swap instead of Gravemind because it provided more consistent results. ALTERATIONS
-All Marines are ODST
-Some Marines have human heads (such as Johnson)
-Most Marines have ODST helmets (which is actually a head permutation)
-Changed the sky to a more cloudy/foggy sky
-Adjusted player0 starting location
-Player starts with Rockets (instead of a BR) which can be traded with other ODST Marines
-Pilot and Co-Pilot are now visible when picking up Johnson
-In one variant you play as an ODST (but this is limited to Third Person)
-I will attempt to get this recorded when playing Co-op
*See the included notes file for more specifics and valuesINSTALL
1) Before copying the file to your Halo 2\maps default maps directory you must backup the original.
2) The filename is 03a_oldmombasa.map, so make sure you backup the original by either renaming it or by
moving it to a backup sub-folder. I rename the original file to 03a_oldmombasa.map.ORIGINAL so I know what
it is at a later date.
3) Copy the new file to the same location then start Halo 2 Vista.
4) Select Outskirts from the Campaign selection screen.
5) For the ODST player character variant I recommend using one of the Third Person applications
listed below. I have included these and a few more apps/mods that you may require. TOOLS
