Nice! I think I may use this in my urban map. will credit.
Which I abbreviate as HRHH.
Simply put, the goal of this project is to make a faithful recreation of the original Halo CE HUD in a higher resolution format. The original HUD was designed for a very low screen resolution, so the source files are not particularly detailed. These days, most of us use full HD or higher screen resolutions, and the original HUD has shown its age.
I aim to fix this and release it when it's done.

Here I have a 4x render of my tracing, the original xbox bitmaps in PS (and modified to have the color) and a 1x scale of my tracing.
I have also re-created the split-screen variant of the HUD:
Normally, this is what you would see if you used Chimera's split-screen HUD command
And now you will see this:
I am not ashamed to admit that I spent hours on each shields variant. I had to make sure my tracing was as close as humanly possible to the originals at 1x. Sure, anyone can trace it really quick but it takes some work to get it right.
Anyway, if you wish to stay updated join Matt and I's shared Discord server: https://discord.gg/XQBs2vA I got more pics in there, I'm not sure how long these images will last.
EDIT: For reference, this is what I had to work with when tracing

I look forward to using this!
May his soul rest in peace.
why did i quote the whole original post...
Mhm, I'm really digging the shaders. Looks like some detailmaps are needed though. Don't forget to use Halo 2 Vista textures, some are higher res than their xbox counterparts.

Love those shaders for the buildings/urban landscape. It's too bad there's no multiplayer city maps on Halomaps with more contemporary (post 2004) textures. Would love to see you or someone else release a multiplayer Mombasa or city map with an Halo 3: ODST or Reach type urban vibe.Edited by HandofGod on Jun 10, 2017 at 03:38 PM
I don't know about you guys, but I'm almost ready for CE3 2017!

The time to do it, I'd say go for it.
Star wars theme.
Anyways how cmt_spv3 going?
Join the discord. Lots of discussion all the time.
Dennis has been clear that he doesn't make any profit from this site. If anything, he pours cash into it out of love.
Damn. Not even one reply... That's tough.
I want it but I don't have the skills to implement this, much less develop. If you do continue developing this I would definitely use it.
Still waiting for more hoof noods.
And don't forget to make the covenant armor colovery indicative of their rank.
You'd have to be more specific. Drama happens all the time in good ol' Halomaps.
I am feeling deserving.
This is a gathering site for professionals only. Pls act accordingly.
I remember the video too, I was thinking about that first level thing yesterday. I can't say I remember the actual video name though.

I test LODs by having different stages be different colored spheres so I can see the change and tweak the distances.
