It is with a heavy heart that I formally announce the release of my incomplete map, commonly known as Requiem (a now obsolete name, but the map never had a true name, anyway). I have already submitted the .max file to Halomaps, but for the impatient, here's a link:


Note that this is my 3D source file, not a CE map file.

Thank you to all who were active on my older thread, providing invaluable feedback, critique, and most importantly, motivation. I learned a lot while working on this bad boy. I still plan to continue working on this off and on, but I feel it is unfair to keep it from the community any longer when someone can benefit from it right now.

Those of you who download and find a use for something you found in the file, if you could be so kind as to let me know, either on this thread, through PM, or xfire, how you're using it, I would sincerely appreciate it. I am curious to see what you can come up with!

I'm reachable by my xfire greengonzo (if you add me, let me know that you came from this thread; I deny random requests). I'm not done with CE, Halo, or 3D modeling...I'm just getting started. slowly...bute surely

Are you kidding me? It only contains a .max file, not the actual .map file which I thought it was in the release.

I can put up a .map file if you want. It won't do anything and will probably crash CE, but it will be in the format you prefer.

On that note, I'll edit my original post to be specific about what the download contains.

It's a shame that it's incomplete, but I look forward to the day that it becomes playable. Always liked the concept.

Thanks! My hope is that someone better at making maps than I am will come along and pick up my pieces. I never got portalling down, and even when tool stopped whining about it, I still had clipping and portal glitches. No fun to see your work half gone because you have no idea which way a portal should face or even if one should be there.

I was operating on a kernel design principle (model, map, and in-game a section of the map instead of all at once) and completely finished red side and was able to get it into Sapein. The portals suck, and the lightmaps aren't spectacular, but it should be possible to turn it into a full-fledged map. Additionally, because it is sealed with the exception of the tunnel leading to the minimap, it is a self-standing map in its own right and could be released as is (almost); it just isn't a good map for aerial vehicles but it could be decently fun for a ground-only map.

You want me to post a link for downloading the necessary Sapien files (BSP, bitmaps and shaders, etc.)? If so, what server is best? I've only uploaded images, so I am unfamiliar with the pros and cons of various file hosting services, and this site hasn't been updated in months, from what I can tell.
