Hey all,

I've made two heavily scripted single player missions, using multiplayer maps BSP.

The first is Brutes, a mission designed to feel like a Halo 3 mission, with huge battles, flood, covenant and human skirmishes, and recharging health.

The second is ODST Assault, a mission made to feel like a Halo Reach mission, with tight squad gameplay and many tough opponents. It follows the story of Buck, Dutch, Mickey and Romeo on Halo during Halo 3.

Both maps are as accurate to their base games as possible. I have also imported most of the sounds and dialog from those respective games to make it move accurate. You can find these dialogue and sound tags in the tag release below.

I hope you have fun, these maps aren't 100% finished or polished, but I worked hard on them. Any criticism or feedback is appreciated!



1. Install Open Sauce 4.0 at http://www.halomods.com/ips/index.php?/topic/848-opensauce-v400-release/

2. Extract the brutes.yelo and odstassault.yelo into your maps folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps)

3. Right click shortcut for Halo Custom Edition on desktop. At the end of the "Target" field, outside of the quotations add "-Console -Devmode"

4. Run Halo Custom Edition. Press the ~ key (American) or the ` (UK) key, and type "map_name brutes" or "map_name odstassault". If you followed all steps correctly, the mission should begin!

To be honest they got me back into Halo CE. I always wanted to mod Halo 3 and Reach, and your tag pack is the next best thing. :)

Halo 3 animations and flood shaders sounds amazing, I'll definitely keep an eye out if you do! I'm very glad you enjoyed the levels and thank you for the feedback too!

As for why I used other Halo 3 FP arms, I didn't even realise I was haha. I've switched to using yours now for consistencies sake.

Looks like a lot of great work went into this. I'm always a sucker for custom SP maps.
I'll play it through again once I have the time again but here's a crash report if you care.
