Submit and download new maps here.


Do these get updated very often? I'm seeing a lot of the new content being from last year in there, is it an annual thing? Pretty good successor though in the event that we're (hopefully not) right about HaloMaps never being updated again

It was being updated every month, but yeah Matt doesnt have many time to upload the maps, I have already upload 2 maps and they haven't been posted

I'm working 60-70 hours a week right now and don't have a lot of time to do that. My 2nd job ends in November so I'll try to clear out the uploads by years end.

How do you even spend that much on server hosting? Like, what are you even buying? I thought HaloCE3.com costed me too much money and that costs me like $150 a year between the domain/host/mediafire premium.

Halo CE General Discussion » How about an INTERIOR level/bsp tutorial? Jul 1, 2018 12:42 AM (Total replies: 23)

You do not need to add a sky to an interior map if its 100% closed off. Halo only needs maps to be 100% closed. Sky just shows the skybox, whether interior or exterior.

No real good tutorials for interior stuff unfortunately. I'd just look up hard modeling tutorials over anything else honestly. Once you get OK at modeling you just need to create something that's 100% closed off, attach it to a frame, and make sure the shaders in max have shader_environments in your tag.

If anything you could look here I guess https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLffzBdSV8dXoFYtpDp6vBFMIYoxApkWHz https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLffzBdSV8dXoWpG-_3AMmSJ7yXkNXTI5D

You do not need to be in devmode to change difficulty.

requested function "" cannot be executed now

means you're typing something wrong.

Halo CE General Discussion » Bump mapping similar to xbox? Xbox sounds? Jun 14, 2018 09:54 PM (Total replies: 3)

Audiophiles say ogg sounds better so I'd use that when compiling sounds until you must use xbox for sounds that aren't working correctly.

I'll add to the speculation and say that I thought CMT had moved on to recreating the oddball weapon

Halo CE General Discussion » Looking for Universal UI source. May 16, 2018 08:58 PM (Total replies: 4)

Use Refinery to rip the scripts.

SOooooooooooooooo not sure where to post this but could someone explain has it always been like this or am I stupid.

So I go to do sleep commands
(camera_set 1.1 0)
(sleep 30)
(camera_set 2.1 0)

ala like that. 30 game ticks = 1 second
Well I set my game to vsync 120fps and 30 game ticks = 1/4 second. Therefor my sleeps that should be 1 second aren't that and are jumping ques to early. It's only causing errors in one of my maps (so idk if its even happening in the others or not) and I can just enable (cinematic_start) to lock to 30 but doesn't 30 game ticks = 1 second regardless of fps? What did I break?!?


welp after recompiling to run some tests I can't get my error with the camera points to happen again. Though it does seem like fps affects the print command and how long it stays up. A regular print command on locked 30fps stays up for about 4 seconds. On Vsync 120 it's gone within a second. Odd....

Looks like there haven't been updates on this map since last year. Still aiming for a 2018 release?

Yes. Just because no update doesn't mean no progress. There's no reason to excite people if it's not going to be out soon.

I'd expect most updates to come in the final month before release. Maybe some teases as stuff boils down but as of now I can say the map is playable from the beginning to the end. It's just a matter of cleaning up, optimizing, beta testings, etc (which will still take some time. It's a mess in spots).
