Bollocks, I lost my dog

Yo, This is my idea for a new Halo game...... im not actually making it myself, but If any Custom Edition modders out there want 2 make their own story mode, just give this a look. In this, you play as an ODST - one of those spec-ops marines in Halo 2. The story is set at the very beggining of the war against the Covenant, and the Marines are preparing for a counter-attack against the Covenant ground forces on a conquered Human planet. The Human fleet has moved in stealthily, and the Covenant don't know they are there. The entire ODST corps has grouped together to assault an area of planet which is heavily defended by Covenant ground Troops. The marines are ready to fight the Covenant - which are just called ''Aliens'' by the Marines, due to this being set years before the other Halo games - and, due to higher numbers and more Ships, are ready for a quick victory. You board the Dropships and are dispatched down to the planet's surface. Your objective is to secure a landing zone for the ''Heavies'' - Large Heavy Transport dropships - so Vehicles and heavy equipment can be deployed. You land, and several squads are sent to check out the surrounding area, including you and your Platoon. You head North-East, and discover a Covenant convoy which is unaware of any enemies. They have several Tanks and plenty of ground troops. More Marines join you in your hiding place among the rocks, and your Seargent calls in an airstrike on the convoy. The sound of jets fill the air, and the Covenant turn to see what is making the noise. Then, numerous Fighter-bombers fly into sight, and they release their bombs. You and the rest of the Marines charge forward to secure the area, and find that there are no covenant survivors. You and your squad are sent further out into the dark. Just then, 2 Elites come over the hill, and the Marines open fire. The Elites take a few shots, and then shoot back, killing a few of your men. one of them is taken out, but the other goes on to kill 2 more marines before falling. At that moment, hundreds more Elites appear in the distance, and the Marines form a defensive line. The Covenant charge your position, and you fire on them. At first, several are killed, but once their weapons are in range, blow the Marines away. Plasma and bullets are exchanged with troops on both sides falling, and the Covenant refuse to let down. Before their assault can overwhelm you, Scorpion tanks and Warthogs (earlier models) appear on the scene and gun down the Covenant, who fall back. Before you can regroup though, Covenant mortar shots pound your position, scattering the Marines and forcing you out of your cover........... Thats about as far as ive got. Its just an idea for the beggining of the first level if anyone's interested.
Revenge was here.

Yeah, it's hard enough to get AI to even move in Halo CE. Something like this would require pre-scripted events more advanced than even Halo 2 had.

I suggest you and Jay have a chat. He and his covenant war campaign do stuff along these lines. playing as an ODST is not a part of Jay's campaign however: http://forums.filefront.com/halo-modding-editing/309005-covenant-war-halo-custom-edition-campaign.html Take a look and talk to Jay about ideas.
