Halo CE General Discussion » Pelican Entry May 22, 2009 08:21 AM (Total replies: 11)

Actually only Gamma927 mentioned it similar to the way I did, and I was just listing it out filling in the gaps in a way that I understand, I'm still not very good with this stuff so bare with me.

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions everyone!

Could you tell me in theory if this method would work, and if it would, any help on how it would be done?

  • Add pilot seat to Pelican

  • Set AI pilot to spawn in Pelican

  • Set AI passengers to spawn in Pelican

  • Set Player to spawn as passenger

  • Set exact movement path for pilot to follow

  • Eject player/passengers after certain amount of wait time


Think it could work, in theory?

You spawn inside a moving pelican, it lands to let you and marines out like in campaign.

Same as on b30.

Hey how would I go about adding a Pelican entry? Like in b30

Thanks.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Exporting models? May 20, 2009 03:48 PM (Total replies: 1)

I have 3ds Max 2009, what do I use to export animations?

I have a JMS model exporter but nothing for animations and I've been looking all over for what I need to be using but I'm just gonna be honest and say I'm lost.

Can someone give me a link to the right file that's compatible with the 2009 version?

Thanks.

Polamee has dropped out so we still need people, I know there isn't much information given about this project, but it's not because the information isn't there, it's because we just want to keep it under wraps until we release the first level.

Hope to hear from more of you.

Ok that sounds good, I've messaged you.

Here's another screenshot, just to give everyone a better idea on what kind of maps we're going to be working with. (Untextured of course).

@MissingSpartan7: The closest I would say would be to The Cole Protocol, if you've read that. Not my favourite book but closest scenario I can think of. It's based around three Spartans that went MIA and were assumed dead but are far from it.

Concept art would include weapons, vehicles, environments. If you're willing to do any of those then add me on MSN - picceta@gmail.com


@Greenfuzz: I'll take that offer, is there anything else you're skilled in or even have basic knowledge on?


@Polamee: We don't, we haven't actually looked into it so much, we've been working on other things so that we went to recruit some, we'd be able to put them to work quicker rather then having them wait around for other content.



Anyone else, voice acting will be needed but we haven't got that far in yet. Nor do we know how to record, and then implement the sound files into the game, if anyone knows how then that would be good, but it's not a top priority at the moment.


If you're interested in working on any of this please add me to MSN - picceta@gmail.com

Story:
The story involves part of the halo universe not covered in the games, or in any of the books. The story is mostly kept within the group so that it's not leaked or to give it away. But what I can say is it involves three Spartans, and is set at the beginning of Halo 1 time.

It has been written up properly, but is not finished.


Maps:

Jobs to do:
- Map Designer, (Picceta) Also open to others.

There are many jobs open, so far we're covering bits and pieces ourselves so we're looking for people who have a variety of experience. Whatever you're experience feel free to contact us.

Personally I make the maps, but since my computer sucks, I can't use Sapien to place spawns and weapons etc, so someone who can help out with that would be great.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Tool error Apr 5, 2009 05:51 AM (Total replies: 3)

How would you suggest I go about fixing this? I've already tried reconstructing some parts of the map and it still gave me the same error.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Tool error Apr 4, 2009 06:27 AM (Total replies: 3)

Hey everyone, I've been running my map through tool and I'm getting this error.

### WARNING: a surface clipped to no leaves (see cyan in error geometry).

And it lists the error multiple times, I've checked the WRL file and it makes no sense, there's nothing wrong with the model as far as I can tell.

There's no water on the map either.

Can anyone help? Would really appreciate it because I'm out of ideas.

Halo CE General Discussion » Sapien Feb 9, 2009 04:24 PM (Total replies: 11)

Yeah I did that and I've fixed all of those errors, there are no errors showing up.

The .wrl isn't even showing up anymore, as if they'res no errors. Also fixed all errors shown up in STL.

Halo CE General Discussion » Sapien Feb 9, 2009 03:50 PM (Total replies: 11)

Basically I can finally open the darn program, that works ok. But when I open my scenario to look at the map all I see is some weird blue purple screen that freezes up my computer.

Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be wrong? Any help appreciated.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Map errors Jan 31, 2009 11:01 AM (Total replies: 2)

I built part of a map, designed for single player but we're getting errors. (We want to play test it even though it's not finished/textured etc).

I used the STL error check in 3ds max. There were about 2000 errors, and I spent about an entire week fixing them all to get it down to 0. I've tried flipped some of the faces round, since some of them were wrong way.

But I'm still getting a lot of errors in tool, but I don't know what actually needs fixing. Here's what we're getting, if anyone could tell me anything that'd be a great help.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Tool Problem(?) Jan 26, 2009 06:11 PM (Total replies: 7)

Is it actually possible to run the map without any shaders? Just for testing purposes, could that be the reason why its not working?

(It's my model).

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Model Skinning Jan 14, 2009 10:14 AM (Total replies: 5)

Me and my friend are working on a project together, we've edited a plasma rifle model, to add an aimer.

We're happy with the edited model, and want to reskin it, photoshopping is not a problem for us. But we're just not sure how to put the skin on it properly. The default plasma rifle nodes are in the correct places, but we haven't added a node for the aimer, is that necessary?

So it's just a standard plasma rifle skin, with a bit added for the aimer. Two extra shaders used for the aimer, just don't know how to place them.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S we have looked at many tutorials, but we're still unclear.
