Halo CE Technical / Map Design » What is a weapon tag? (I'm a noob) Apr 8, 2011 02:35 PM (Total replies: 15)

"Tags" are files that contain the information on the specified object for how it is to appear, act, etc. in the game.

Take a look in the tutorials section of this site, and the site that is in the Halo CE main directory... There is a lot of info there on how to utilize them.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » anyone willing to finish my biped? Apr 8, 2011 01:41 PM (Total replies: 34)

So far, she is in! Check the email I sent for a pic, dude. All that is left is to get a working collision model, and to make multipurpose maps.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Modding hunters Apr 8, 2011 01:37 PM (Total replies: 9)

1) Study the multipurpose maps of the other characters that have a color change, and modify the one from the regular hunter. You will also need to take the regular bitmaps and change all of the blue armor to either white or a light grey.

I was working on my own modified hunters, trying to get them as a decent multi-player character. I even was working on something to be able to have him carry different weapons.
(I tried uploading a different picture as well, but the site I had to use wouldn't let me.)

2) Well... I don't think you would want to make his skin literally as tough as his metal armor, but as was mentioned by the others, you would set his health to a higher level. You technically could change his skin material type, but I wouldn't put it as metal....

And yes, to get a bigger hunter, you would need to import the model into max and resize it. Unfortunately, it is actually a bit more complex than this. You would need to reanimate him as well, since the new size would not comply with the original hunter animations.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » creation of levels with GMAX Apr 1, 2011 10:47 PM (Total replies: 2)

Or... you could use the tutorial that was done in gmax>>


It is actually one of the better tutorials on beginner level map creation.

So in other words... search around first, ask for help after...

*insert epic return theme music here* Yeah. I'm back, people.

I can help finish this for you if you are still looking for someone. I won't be able to do custom animations, but I can figure out how to get the biped in-game.. I might not have posted many, but I have done a few of my own bipeds in the time I worked with C.E.

BTW, I will not be able to go on Xfire because of the network my college has up blocks it... so... PM me if you need me and I will send you the details on how you can get the files to me if you are interested.

the HEV's could be vehicles attatched to markers on the frigate

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Pilot Biped Problem Sep 19, 2009 08:21 AM (Total replies: 14)

when i was trying it, i got as far as sapien, but when she was spawned, her face was messed up, her face looked wierd, and her joints were stretched

i didnt go through all the posts, but here are my suggestions

overall slow speed, being that it is a super vehicle

make it with an extremely low damage transfer for riders so that the dont live forever (maybe 0.0000001 or something)

high damage for the MAC's so that the easiest way to take one out is with another, but of course not a 1 hit kill with them on each other with a slow ROF

enough seats for a whole team (pilot, gunner, +6)

a space for "cargo", to attempt to carry other vehicles, maybe using a script based on the one for the pelican pickup

primary: MAC, secondary: slightly homing missiles, "flashlight effect" weapon: chain guns, and for one more, a bomb drop using whatever other trigger is possible (check the heavy scorpion)

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Pilot Biped Problem Sep 18, 2009 08:19 AM (Total replies: 14)

i tried to re-rig her before... it came out messy...

in other words, dont try it. if you want her as a biped, you will have to make a custom animation file with her rig.

The quickest way would be to turn off UAC

i just tried that... still nothing. is there anything else i would need to do besides turning off the UAC? that is, if that was what will solve my problem

thanks for the suggestions, but as far as i can tell so far, not many of you have ever used Vista...

unfortunatly, that didn't work...
