About time someone explained this. Makes it much easier to follow than having to guess and read a decade old post/tutorial.

Happy birthday Halo 3.


Also I had a Heretic Hunt dream which was odd.
I was playing some sort of beta build of my mod that had my current bsps but way better looking.
You ended up fighting the heretic leader on foot while he had a strafing banshee indoors. It was kinda like a giant sentinel. Eventually you would follow him in a banshee by going the speed of light for like 2 seconds to the gasmine. There were humans for some stupid reason and an elevator that looked like I animated it in high school with no sleep.

Kinda like that. Pillars in a hanger. The new heretic guy I made flew off earlier in his cool h2a like banshee and the heretic leader stayed to cover him.

I'll explore strafing banshees now.

Halo CE General Discussion » Anyone want to tinker with my marine? Sep 17, 2017 03:46 PM (Total replies: 2)

This has a lot of the standard and armored marine parts mixed together if that is what you mean.

There we go.
I don't think any halo CE modders uploads to nexus very often but this is there.

Whoops I need to read slower

Glad to see you again, especially with some ce work. I remember you having flamethrower animations for the marines working. That has been on my mind more than a few times in the past.

Real time map editor will be very handy!

It always good to see someone making tools for this old game. Make modding Halo CE more reasonable feeling.

Keep up the work.

Once you enter halomaps you can't actually leave.

Only the first half of the campaign is done.
It is very clear that this project will be finished.

Happy to see more people back here on halomaps.

I remember hearing not so nice things about you when I joined.

Thanks, I'd have been 18 if it weren't for my counter aging serum. How has the community been anyways? It's good members like you are still around.

Most people moved on. CE's modding quality has gone way up but the population as gone way down.

CMT SPV3 is a thing.

I can see how I can adding weapon swapping with AI, especially with this mod but I don't plan on spending the time to do so, at least for now.


Jetpack elites kinda suck in CE unless kirby is involved. I'm using some tags and scripts he handed me a while ago.

There are dozens of ways I can implement h2 like jetpacks for my AI.

Jetpack for the player is an idea for now. Altis already did a reach like one. Dealing with designing a level around more vertical movement sounds like a pain.

battlesidegulch_sp was really fun. A few triggers were not correctly activated but the nice placement of checkpoints was convenient for that.

It felt like an old style mod for CE and I mean that in a good way. Keep it up, its looking good.

How difficult is it to use OpenSauce and become accustomed to it?

Thanks again!

Open sauce's extensions are best in campaign maps. You can use it in multiplayer but most people use other multiplayer extensions that are incompatible with OS. Also its kind of a hassle for people to install OS just to play the 1 or 2 MP maps out there that use OS.

OS does provide the option of compiling a map with just the graphical upgrades and the ability for other players without OS to play on the same map/server with the upgrades disabled on their end.

OS's modding kit is just a modified version of the regular one. Not hard to learn at all!

You don't export anything. You realize "Wow Im still working in a 16 year old game engine" and then quit Halo and do something else with your life.

This is also the best solution to modding halo.

I remember seeing you around here when I joined CE modding. Welcome back, we've lost quite a few people but the modding quality has gone way up!

At this point most people use whatever max version they are comfortable with. I just upgraded to max 2018 and it works fine for CE (at least for me).

here area few scripts I have gathered/edited from others throughout the years that I use for exporting various things.

Opensauce comes with an option to download an opensauce version of the editing kit. Importing files isn't very different.

Here is the Wiki for opensauce

Hope you stay so we look like we aren't dying as a modding community.

Could you name the issues you've had with the hek+? It'd really help me if i knew what to look out for. I have no doubt there will be bugs for a while, so any that you know of with hek+ will be ones i should specifically try to avoid.

I remember when ripping shader_transparent_chicago_ex (and maybe just the shader_transparent_chicago) that the color function and alpha function would be swapped.

Slap Happy, haven't seen you in on halomaps in a while. Good to see you.

c10 crazy marine turns into flood if not killed.

c10 allies that survive get teleported with you to the library. I'm assuming you are using odsts for the mission so the flood infection forms won't instantly kill them.

You are running out of encounter data on that mission aren't you?

I would also suggest weapon carry over from c10 to the library since its a teleport. You said you didn't want weapons carrying over though because its not ideal but I think that would make things interesting rather than just starting with a shotgun by default.

Rather not work on missions difficult for people to play.

We still need ideas for the b30 carryover to b40, so all suggestions welcome still.

Optional objective to reactivate the security system would be interesting and fun to work with. Not very lore friendly.

It would be interesting if the player could activate something at the crashed pelican sight on the beach to unlock a loadout with heavy weapons for the next map or have the allies with heavy weapons. Something that seems like they recovered the supplies before leaving.

Adding additional loadouts as rewards would be neat. I have a feeling that would be a hassle.

First person legs.


Kirby did all of the scripting a while ago:

60 FPS methods are going to have to be made unless I'm crazy enough to force you guys to lock everything at 30 with vsync.
That or I'll just cut this idea.

One of these days I'll make an official heretic hunt thread or site.
