Just dawned on me that Halo CE came out 14 years ago this past May... I was 14 when it came out. Crazy how time flies.

A few days ago I just reinstalled CE on my laptop, imported all my old maps, and installed OS and SPV3 (glad to see that came out!)

I haven't really been active or playing CE since about 2012. I have managed to glean that Halomaps no longer updates (something about too big of a backlog) so everything is on CE3 now. I am running v.1.10 now, but it looks like custom map servers are somewhat scarce still?

Besides CE3, the last things I downloaded were Lumoria and Firefight Descent. What other single player goodies are out there? Are any new multiplayer maps worth a download?

The only mod with reliable map download servers is hac2 at this point in time. Opensauce and hac2 are not very compatible with each other though.

This map and prior/subsequent iterations of it are multiplayer must-haves.

Thanks for the links. I was aware of most of the map pack maps, but not of bigass, somehow. Is it basically another hugeass/cold snap/extinction?

I had also heard a lot about the Takedown / Project Lawson series. I think I played an early beta or the first episode? What's the latest version of that?

I think what you're referring to was probably MattDratt's extremely early "Takedown" release when he was just starting out. Here's what to play for Takedown:
- The Introduction: https://haloce3.com/downloads/singleplayer/original-singleplayer/takedown_theintroduction_v1-1/?_sf_s=Takedown
- Project Lawson: https://haloce3.com/downloads/singleplayer/original-singleplayer/takedown_project_lawson_v1-2/


Now here's a list I have for singleplayer projects I'd recommend (might've missed I few). Skip the ones you've already played:

Campaign:
- SPV3
- TSC Evolved
- Takedown Introduction
- Takedown Project Lawson
- Project Lumoria
- Halo Covert Ops
- The Great Infestation
- Spleen
- DMT-OD SP4 Upskirts
- Epsilon Sp
- SOI's Singleplayer Mod
- New Mombasa Beta
- Halo Slender Swamp

Covert Ops was always a favorite of mine.
New Mombasa Beta is definitely one to keep an eye on, that project's not only fun but cohesive in terms of aesthetics and design.

Am I right in saying New Mombasa Beta has been replaced by the Fall of Mombasa? I don't think it's in beta stage any more
