Greetings peers! I'm not sure how I should introduce myself, and I'm quite honestly nervous about creating a thread on a forum that's notorious for being difficult to impress. So in short, if you've watched CE3, this is something I put my heart into.

About: Okay, big secret spilled, of course this is inspired by the way CE3 operates: Having a run where everyone submits their stuffs for the sake of getting attention, publicity, and getting actual motivation on progressing with their projects. So what is different? Smghurrghrrghhrgghh it's monthly (At the end of each month to be precise), but less flashy (we'll get to that part).

Motivation: Okay, big secret spilled, how much of a coincidence is it to have something like this announced right after CE3 LIVE discontinues b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶b̶e̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶o̶ ̶l̶a̶r̶g̶e̶l̶y̶ ̶i̶n̶d̶e̶b̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶p̶a̶y̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶B̶r̶y̶a̶n̶'̶s̶ ̶l̶i̶n̶e̶s̶? Three reasons: To scour away fanatics claiming Halo CE will die when CE3 LIVE goes off, to answer to the mentally insane people thinking (SBB) would inherit CE3 LIVE, and lastly, to help the console normies (or generally those who aren't keeping in-touch with this game anymore) understand how incredibly diverse we still are. For that, I have decided to do this.

The Series Itself: What I'm gonna put here will probably change in the future, but anyhows: It'll feature me presenting your ideas, your teasers, your releases, your screenshots, your videos, your WIPs, your initiative, your integrity, a lot of stuff! Only under two conditions: It's gotta be Halo Custom Edition, and it's your project. Simple enough.

What Has Been Done: Currently, I've done two editions of Halo CE NOW! to test the waters on how it would spring, and the response I got was outstanding. It was part of the reason for making this thread. People sought to help me by making another custom biped, more furniture and even doing part of the news! So enough talk, these are my personal WIPs:

Halo CE NOW! July (2016): CE3, HaloFollower & RefleX



Halo CE NOW! August (2016): CE3 Prize Giveaways, Project Dreamweb & Open Carnage



Halo CE NOW! September (2016): CMT SPv3.0.2, CE3 Prize Results & OpenCarnage Gamenights



Halo CE NOW! October (2016): SAPP 10, Halo: Composition & Top 5 Halo CE Videos



Halo CE NOW! November (2016): Dreams In A Cryotank, HMU & Warp Fix



Halo CE NOW! December (2016): Vote The Best Map of 2016, Halo: New Mombasa & Sierra 117



Halo CE NOW! January (2017): CMT SPv3 Part 2 Updates, Bigass Armor Abilities & GBFOS Gamenights



Halo CE NOW! February (2017): AI Synchronisation, Mo's Editing Kit & TSCE: Multiplayer V2 Beta




What I've researched for now was anything worth mentioning throughout various sources such as: Halomaps, Open Carnage, HaloMods, MODACITY and other YouTube related sources. Though this is the first step to changing it entirely, as I now ask you guys to submit what you wish you want to have being presented on, just as much as CE3 did. But excuse me first...

TL;DR

What we offer you:

  • A monthly series presenting your project's progress to a broader audience

  • Detailing and covering the viewers of your ideas

  • Giving you a sizable opinion, both in and outside the office (comment section) about your project's destination

  • All of that in one video


What you can submit:

  • Anything: It has to be in Halo Custom Edition and it's your project

  • What you wish to be presented



How to submit: For as much as I can say, my base for fast communication is on Discord under: (SBB) Storm#8401
After broader testing, a fileshare has been created to ease the process of submitting things. For now. So to set it up right: Info about the project, important is the author's name. Some visuals like images and/or videos. If it's a map, we'll do the footage for it!

Afterwords: This is mearly the beginning, as I might think this to be a prototype to something really special. That means I'm very open to feedback and suggestions myself (Except when it comes to changing the name, dead water!). Of course, leave any questions behind if there's something confusing or what not.

Things planned:

  • A̶n̶ ̶i̶n̶t̶r̶o̶

  • A permanent BSP for the location

  • Collaborations

  • Completely deleting my accent

  • An overlay on the lower third for less useful information

  • Having it live. Yes, the thing CE3 lacked

Precise! Though ideas are subject to change, I'd like it to be monthly. Not giving authors a hassle on submission deadlines and having them not wait for a long period of time for the results.

So we can repeatedly submit our projects?

Like my urban-based map, it's still a WIP but I generally make a lot of progress in the space of a month. Is that something you would be willing to showcase?

Grats :>

I think this is a good middle ground between not having CE3 and having CE3.

On the one hand CE3 was great at being an explosive event to build interest around projects and the community. On the other hand, because of CE3, content/info drop on popular projects were sparse and dry.

Looking forward to it.

    It's safe to say it is, but I guess I can make exceptions when there're peeps from the CE community doing it :D

    One thing that comes to mind: are there even enough CE projects to maintain this project? It's a cool concept of course. If it's not just Halo CE I too would have something to show eventually.

    There're definitely a lot I'm able to cover, though it is subtle to have things between 10 to 20 minutes at best. For now. Plans change everytime: 10 projects? More time to talk! 100 projects? Quickie time!
