I've been around since around 2009, what all has happened that I have missed?

I am specifically interested in open sauce and how that all works and any other major things happening, I'm glad to be back. I've forgotten a lot.

Bigass is probably the most popular custom map right now.

Looks like halo online is... a thing.

It doesn't look good as of right now, I can say that much.

I sure have missed out on a lot.

It's going to take some time for me to get caught back up haha.

I really don't think Halo Online is going to be a thing here anytime soon.
Occasionally worth checking up on every once in a while, but eh.

And have you played Project Lumoria?

I have not, but I am downloading it now.

Question, do I have to have 3ds max to be able to completely create weapons maps animations etc or can gmax do that? 3ds max is expensive, and I am not a student.

use the student one anyways ;) you don't need any proof that you are one. its alright to use but ofc you cant sell anything produced in it. i personally use blender to model and send it to 3ds max for export (blender is the best free modeling program but be forewarned it is a bit difficult to use at first until you memorize the major hotkeys). 2014 is the best version of max to get as it has working .wrl import for errors.

Alrighty, sounds good.

Has the community gotten over the protection thing yet? Last time I checked thats what everyone was focusing on doing is protecting maps.

Anyone making a map worth protecting it isn't protecting it

Good to hear everyone got over that fuss. So what is everyone in the community working on lately? What are people interested in besides halo online right now?

Are there any downsides to using opensauce besides hac2? What is so special about hac2?

Ah sparky, I remember you from my days of halo demo modding, Zeus is not a fake as I have found it on the website I used to go on, however I am on a pc now. Glad to see you are working on it. Good luck to you!

You won't remember who I am, mostly because I am under a new username. Glad to see you again.

Besides all the awesome features mentioned in the thread I posted, it has gotten some new ones like custom chat:




Custom HUD color:



A medal system that goes from H2 to H4 medals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiDY2DzaIJQ (also shows better how the new chat looks).

I might be missing something but those are all the new and big features. Everything included in a tiny DLL, except for the medal packs.

Erm, are you not using opensauce in those pictures?

Also figured I would mention I do not play multiplayer currently.

No, I'm not using OS.

OS and HAC 2 tend to crash when used together. However, there is a fix that works for some people but, AFAIK, it doesn't work with Windows 8.1: http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=47838
