I was very interested in your progress with the insurrectionists, so I'm glad you've come back to release them.

If we had more context for the mission itself, it might be easier to make suggestions for what might be an appropriate finale.

This was a good idea. I didn't even know we had Onyx Sentinels.

I'm all about the machine gun 'Hog.

Was there ever an reason announced? Server costs? Legal proceedings? Technical issues?

AFAIK, Dennis has personally checked the contents of every mapfile on the site.

This. As I understand it: something came up, and Dennis had to be away from home for an extended period of time to tend to a family member. This meant he was unable to playtest the submitted maps.

Towards the end, when they show off an early iteration of Silent Cartographer, the assault rifle has a 42-round magazine and a tamer fire rate. I don't think I'd seen that before.

the death of Halomaps

All the old maps are still there, and the forum still works. New projects can be posted here and linked to directly.

Halomaps lives forever.

Perhaps I should simply make software to use all by myself and share nothing

This is a threat that rings hollow in this place.

people who care only about boosting their own ego

You're one of them (you literally just compared yourself to actual Jesus), and everyone has recognized this through your actions on this forum. That's why they band together against you. Jesus wasn't whinging and crying about how much people didn't like him.

It has been all expense and no gain or reward, not even recognition, but only more mockery and disdain towards me

I have spent .... decades of my life .... in the pursuit of doing nice things for the Halo communities

Halo came out in 2001.

It's currently 2018.

A decade is ten years.

Next time I recommend you donate the $20,000 to Halomaps. It may help this place out, you never know...

We do need to think about donating more often, regardless of whether it has any impact on the site's relative inactivity, because (while we're on the subject of recognition) Dennis has put money, time, and effort into something that everyone of us has enjoyed since 2005. Not because he wished praise, or reward, or recognition, but because he made a promise.

It's a dedicated server installation package. That means that you have the files and information necessary for hosting a Halo dedicated server.

I found the one-line OP hidden amongst thirty lines of text.

Beautiful Map! and Nicely done! but...no one plays these Large/Big maps anymore!

Because no one makes them anymore. If more people made them, more people would play them.

Had most fun playing DMT Air though.

DMT Air was surprisingly fun. You didn't have to allocate a ton of time to play it, you could just hop in and run the course a couple of times to see if you could beat your record, and then you got a nice medal at the end.

I quite like the Covert Ops series for its RPG elements.

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

The website has only been open for a little over 14 years. While that may be a major part of your guys's lifetime for me it is just an eye blink.

Bigass by aLTis is great.

Can confirm. Other maps to look into include Chronopolis, Hydrolysis, Immure, No Remorse, and Z Coagulation H2.

The Covert Ops campaign is a good singleplayer series.

Could all of our hopes and dreams finally come true?

It's the same message they've been giving us for 10+ years: "We're open to the idea," "We're keeping all our options on the table," "We're listening," "It's an exciting prospect." It's another non-answer.

Shiny Shaders are too Shiny

Shiny aside, this is pretty awesome. CE needs more civilians.

Where's that coming from? And there never was any forerunner tank vehicle, the only forerunner tank was the mission, and the only thing we have of that is from part of the gravemind cutscene.

It looks like a still from Evolution Of HALO [Beta Pre-XBOX] RTS & 3rd Person version, but the quality seems higher. It was amongst some files Michelle had bundled together. I'm not sure where it originated from initially.

Halopedia's page for the Forerunner Tank has a sketch that matches up very closely to the model in the screenshot, but this may be distinct from the one that was planned for Halo 2.
