  1. And here I thought from the title this may have been an update to the long-abandoned "Halo Texmod" project by SSO Really psyched to see modding to any extent of the HD graphics engine side of Halo CEA. I've always hoped to be able to go in and restore a lot of the lost artistry of the original game.
  2. Halo '99 Stealth Tank Remake This is my remake of the ever-so-popular "Halo '99" stealth tank. It utilizes textures from the stock CE scorpion tank, warthog, and lifepod. The geometry is roughly 90-something-percent accurate based on all screenshots/videos I could find of the old thing online. Some minor differences exist such as the barrel of the tank. In Halo '99 the stealth tank just had a giant metal barrel, whereas here it has a little more intricate design because there was nothing high resolution enough to use as a solid metal barrel that matched the colour profile. My friend I made this for & I agreed we'd just call it the "MD99" as a little nod to its origin.Obviously meaning "Mac Demo '99". IMPORTANT NOTES FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO PUT THIS INGAME AND MAKE IT ACCURATE TO THE REAL STEALTH TANK In a video of the tank being driven, which can be seen here, take note of the track guards when it fires. There's a weighting error in the rig which causes it to stretch slightly. If you want authenticity you're gonna have to include that. When the stealth tank fires, there's a very fiery backblast from the two vents along the rear of the cannon (can be seen in video linked above) When rotating up/down, the cannon piece physically raises & lowers so that the back of the cannon does not clip. (Example can be seen in tons of prerelease media as well as fourth image above) Despite looking like fixed tracks, it can be seen in one of the prerelease images that the front half of the tracks actually have some spring to them to angle downward when nothing is below them. The tank has a radio antenna on the cannon on the right side of the back centerpiece. It can be seen in the video linked above. Download from Google Drive
  3. Is there any consideration for custom UIs over in Custom Edition maps which make use of their own fonts at all? I'd imagine some stuff might start to look out of place if something is designed to use a sharper or more angular font but it gets overwritten by a standard font.
  4. Alright that's it, I'm calling in the specialist to deal with this abomination: @Pfhunkie
  5. I can't technically vote since the first one I "bought" was the PC port just because my family didn't have an Xbox but we did have a computer, but I played the fuck out of Halo CE Xbox MP with my family whenever we went over to their house, or when they came here they'd bring the xbox with them. Halo is love, Halo is life.
  6. Aaannd five tickets to you! Got to help playtest this earlier today and it works really well. Can't wait to play it some more on gamenights.
  7. Metal Arms Glitch in the System. Community is still going stronger than a lot of games younger than it.
  8. High Definition AF Marines Something I've been working on, on and off for about a week and posting over in the CE Reclaimers Discord. "HDAF Marines" is a small mini-project I started as a way to greatly improve the CE marines, as they were easily hit the hardest in the asset optimization pass of CE, while also adding a lot of new stuff for people to make use out of. The models are all of the vanilla Halo CE marine assets but in a much higher-poly and refined state, some cleaned up UVs, etc. I've also taken to including full male & female variants of all the existing marine armour sets in the game, on top of adding a bunch of new bits which are either entirely original or derived from existing marine equipment in other Halo games. These marines are set up to be entirely modular, meaning any piece of armour / clothing can be fitted to any variant of the marine, so if you wanted some Chad DOOM styled sleeveless armoured marine then by all means go at it with this model. I'm in need of suggestions / taking requests for things other Halo games' marines have that I could recreate in the CE style and put on this model. Screenshots of these models being used to just recreate standard CE marines: Screenshots of the current custom additions
  9. Halo Reach 4 Trial confirmed for 202X
  10. firefox for life
  11. We're older than most of the kids playing Fortnite.
  12. I can bend all of my fingers / toes backwards at least 90 degreess; some much more. Except for my thumbs. Also I can bend the tips of all my fingers backwards as well; again except for my thumbs.
  13. Oh yeah I forgot about that one, I haven't really found a practical use for it when it comes to music. At least, not while keeping sustainable breaths. It's really good for whistling guitar parts, though. Also the DOOM 2016 soundtrack's synths.
  14. I don't know. I never studied it or learned that there even are types. I can just do many various ways of whistling by positioning my jaw, lips, and tongue in different ways. I can also do most of them interchangeably through either breathing in or out. Also if you know how to whistle at all, you can do some cool distortion stuff by doing a continuous breathing in or out through your nose. It's subtle but it's there. The most I've ever been able to make of it is annoying my friends online by doing a very high-tone loud whistle into my mic lol
