currently finishing off the touches on the forth level out of six. its starts on the truth and rec when the flood crash a spirit into one of its hangers, it shows the slow progression of the infestation throughout each level as well as what was happening before chief showed up. And don't worry, there is definitely slowly increasing flood fog as it progresses to a ship that can hold the protomind.
Lots of love to the original flood forgotten exile for doing what i could never have done, they will be heavily featured in the bio of the release. Just wanted to say something since this has been a pet project for a while and its now almost finished just wanted to let you guys in on it that there shall soon be more flood content on this site.

Sounds great I was working on a similar project but I decided to give it a break and started to work on some custom flood tags and ports I might release later.

I just finished porting the halo 3 elite combat form and I am still working on the human combat form. I also did do a custom infection form combining features from halo 1-3. I am really looking foward for this though. Will it be only be one level or a small campaign?

I'm guessing the top and legs? that'd be perfect. i love the h3 human forms too the ones in halo 1 seem so small and frail. do you think that there will be different fldcmb actors based on their armour colour? That'd be mad, and a good way to show the spread if it's not too much to ask y'know.

medium sized campaign but I've got ideas for more like the initial release and the poa battles in the speed run parts. for now it's maybe thirty minutes if you know where the health packs are maybe 45 if exploring properly. Using a mix of a50 and d20 bsps and reversing some of the maps but trying to make it seem as natural as possible. Hopefully the new levels shall add another twenty if speed running. its designed to be made with the combat form in mind, so you'll be jumping across to health packs(biomass\corpses) and maneuvering in large spaces as well as tight corridors being guided through the ship by your tendrils. Also tried to make the spread seem of flood mist seem natural and balancing each level has been a tosser. luckily they're separate map files so you can skip a level if it's giving you some trouble, some can be pretty hektic.

Campaign sounds great can't wait to play it and yes I am planning to have different variants of the elite combat forms. I have already finished the minor but plan to have the major and maybe the zeolot.

Here is the image of the infection form:

This looks a lot like the forgotten exile which makes me want to play it even more, I really miss that mod.

Oh and the infection form has two variants the major has the larger halo 3 tendrils and the minor has the smaller halo 2 tendrils.

Well the actual legs do move but the original tentacles legs wont be able to move. It's just permanently attached to the body.

any chance to edit the model of the original infection form and getting rid o0f or scalling down those legs since they were basically placeholder ones for halo1.
also updating the album soon with keyes chamber and an outside area of the last map

Yeah it's possible but I but wanted it to still have them. The first version of the model I made did not have them but I thought it looked like it was missing something.

thats the image before I added it.

Edit: Oh what do you mean by flight helmet

Hey, just so you know what's with your plasma rifle. You're using the third person model in the first person model slot. That makes it so that in first person it always shows the lowest level of detail model. Make sure you are using the first person model for first person.

So many replies! Thanks guys for the interest I've had stellaris binge and now im back on the mapping, there are some images from the final level where you've been blown out of the ship by rigged covvy explosives to drop most of the hive protecting flood. hopefully a long level although its ending before get to the grav lift as itd be in a different place by this point in the campaign but I'm guessing still in the same general area the truth and rec level


A pelican the flood have crashed into a place that the unsc have dropped troops previously


cheeky battle, you weren't the only flood to fall down

That fp model likely isn't really an fp model then. I suggest trying to rip the original or getting one from a tag pack.

Also make sure that the plasma rifle tag that you are editing is actually the one used in the map.
