Greetings and salutations good people of Haloland... Ha-halond... Ha-haland... Halol... Haloland!

I was thinking during my break at work of a possible clash of insanity...

Like Warhammer, there are a lot of sides within Halo in terms of who people wanna be with.
Now as far as I know, there are:

UNSC (Crewmen, Marines, Humans, w/e)

Swords of Sanghelios (Before they meet and ally with the Humans obviously, therefore being on their own)

Covenant Empire (At the time of Halo 2/3 being Brutes, Jackals, Drones, Grunts, Hunters)

The Flood (From Halo 3 basically like the Pure forms, Flood Combat Forms, Infection Forms and Carrier Forms)

The Forerunners/Forerunner ecumene (This includes Sentinels, Prometheans and what we know of so far in the Forerunner "army")(Maybe even the "Heretics" faction? or you could play off the fact that the "Heretics" still wanted to defend themselves despite 343 guilty spark telling them the purpose of the Ark and the Rings)

The Heretics (See above brackets)

The Triad (Armed and fashioning different human weapons themselves)

The UEF (One of the other armed rebel influential armies that contain humans, the first being the Triad)

So before I go way overboard in terms of what factions could go at it in a brawl, I wonder...
If there ever were a setup where these 8 factions collided in a massive brawl over Ice Fields or Blood Gulch or something, is there a way to have these 8 sides clash in the middle without allying with each other?
Like is there a way in the HEK or the Halo map maker of your choice to even create 8 seperate factions that all act in hostility to each other?

Thanks for reading!

1. This will not work in MP. (Yet)

2. Currently we are limited to 3 factions however just like gametypes there are empty expansion fields littered all over the hek.

3. We are a remanent of an age long past as such our methods and tools lack far behind that of today's.

TLDR; You would be far better off learning unity, UE4 or cryenjin.

I would like to ask then if only 3 factions, how come there have been maps called The Great War in which 4 factions verse each other? Is that the maximum?

You can have a máximum of 6 factions, using the "unused" fields in the team sectión. But as Flanker said, im not sure if that works in mp maps.

It definitely works, I had tried it. Maybe you can even have a maximum of 8 factions.

Interesting... maybe I'll have to look up some tutorials and slowly but surely look into this.

True point but in looking to sapien it looks like there is a slot for:

Red Team
Blue Team
Humans
Covenant
Flood
Sentinels
unused
unused
unused
unused

Those 4 unused slots you can create into more teams apparently which I didn't know but now I do so it seems like it CAN happen. Whether the map, software or hardware can handle it, that's a different story obviously. I appreciate the discussion and thank you all for your input :D.

I was speaking directly to the other guy. And if you recall I already stated most of what you posted above just in a simpler manner.

Regardless I wish you luck with all your endeavours.
