Does anybody wonder that these might still be the "good old days"? Many members posting here have been on Halomaps for roughly 10 years. Where do you think Halomaps will be in another 10 years? Unless Dennis runs this place until he is 74 years old in 2027, I do not think this place will be in existence.

We should enjoy our limited time here while we can, as one day we will all be talking about the good old days when "there was used to be a Halomaps."

Oh wow, I said all that? Sorry about all that, man, wish I never did.

It was 7 years ago and time heals all old wounds. I was 15 years old and didn't know how respond back then, reading my own posts make me cringe. It's fine.

If you're interested in firefight, there is Firefight Descent, released in 2012.

If I had my old setup (pre-harddrive crash), I'd jump aboard for sure.

I don't believe that. Practically everyone I have worked with (MoooseGuy, Gamma927, etc.) has faked a HD crash to have an excuse to not work on a map or release assets.

I still can't figure out who you are, and I used to troll far harder as an obnoxious kid back in the day. Funny seeing a few other oldies popping up in this thread.

Gamma927 always held you in the highest regard.

Assassinchief106, I never missed you.

Why hasn't the firefight scene gone anywhere? I just searched for firefights on the reg site and the 1st page of results is the exact same it's been since '10.

Because solo firefights suck

That must be the reason.

I remember you, along with many others. I miss those days, well the organization and "get it done!" attitude many of us had.

Want to work on a project then? ;)
I guess that was an attitude we "had".

This looks like a good project. It would be nice to see some gameplay and encounters when you have it. I could probably help with SP scripting if you need it, though it has been years since I have made an SP map

If only someone would do an e3 for custom edition

It's time to move on.

If folks aren't willing to donate to keep Halomaps running, there is no way they would be willing to pay someone else to make content. This is a hobby for most people and I'd learn how to make what I want myself if I really wanted it.

That's exactly what a poor person would say. :V

This is just a completely false statement.

so I found this on steam, it's about time this got on pc.

you know this is the odd thing ,about halo wars pc, it works on win 7, I mean didn't they say win 10 was a thing? and win 7 was a no no?.

also linkhttp://store.steampowered.com/app/459220/

The original Halo Wars was released in March 2009, which was before Windows 7 was released in October 2009. I think it makes sense that it runs on older operating systems because of when it was developed.

I had no idea the original Halo Wars was ported to PC, that is good news.

If enough time passes I might die before this gets released.

Just release the source files and tags from Sierra 117. I think most people would be happy with that.

Even if you could connect dozens of extra players, I would imagine the ping would get very high and would not be a good experience for players.

Halo Custom Edition is completely different than regular Halo PC. Gearbox did some major modifications to it, however I do not know what those modifications were.

As an example I do not believe any of the Halo PC maps would work if put in the Halo CE maps folder.

I believe Halo Custom Edition was only made by Gearbox, while the PC version was also made by Bungie and Microsoft. I'm sure the development teams were somewhat different.

Oh I see, political stuff.

I'm glad there's no politics in Halo, imagine if Cpt. Keyes needed to run for reelection and all the controversies that would be dug up by his affair with Halsey. Politics make everything ugly.

Instead lets talk about Takedown, and how late into "early 2017" we have to wait.

worst year since 2007

What happened in 2007? I thought everybody said that those were the good old days, where everyone got along and there was peace on Halomaps.

Reminds me of Rainbow Firefight Descent:

(Actually its just corrupt lightmaps)

Your problem looks to be more of a problem with the bitmaps than the lightmaps, but I cannot tell.
Edited by Pepzee on Dec 8, 2016 at 02:43 AM

I don't predict complete failure. I try to stay optimistic that most projects will be completed. But experience tells me otherwise...

Eitherway, good luck. I am able to answer questions about single-player map scripting if you need it.

I recommend you rethink your goals. Shooting for the moon is fine, but going for the sun might leave you burned.

I have had plenty of massive projects collapse, even with teams of the most talented people on Halomaps. Big projects are not as fun to make as they are to play.

Try joining an existing project and contributing to it. You'll gain experience and skills to use on your own project later on.

Honestly this project sucks butt and I hate working on it so I tend not to.

Then why bother? Time spent doing something I hate is time wasted. The only reason why I still try regardless of all my failures is because I still have fun.

The Halo 3 campaign will soon be obsolete anyway, as there could be a "Halo 3 Remastered" next year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Halo 3. They have done it for Halo 1 and Halo 2 so far...

Yet with surprising regularity they fail at the basic life skill of restraint that will help them in the future.

It shouldn't be surprising.

The culture of the United States and other western countries is focused on the individual in the present. Most folks don't care about the consequences of tomorrow, or even realize them. It is even easier on the Internet as your actions are not directly tied to your identity.

It is an interesting discussion to have.
