Hey i dont think this has been done yet, and I always wanted to do this. To become a Marine, not some cyborg super soldier, but something of flesh and blood. I wanted to be able to jump out a pelican screaming, die covenant monkeys!!! Then shoot their knee caps off and commence bayoneting them to death,I wanted that blue blood all over my face as I mowed down countless jackals and grunts. I wouldve liked that one lonely Private.Jenkins to seek cover behind a rock with me,and provide covering fire as I ran out in the line of fire and gave first aid. To a injured first sergeant,then drag him back to safety,with plasma and bullets zipping all around me, making thumping noises as they hit the ground.
I propose this to you the modding/editing community of halo/halo2 files-
Intense singleplayer action through the eyes of a marine,a well planned campaign,and special effects/sprites. Along with Multiplayer.
Mission one-Abandon ship, you are at the firing range aboard the ship, talking about girls and what your momma made that you liked to eat. With your fellow jar heads,when all of the sudden Boom! an explosion tears through the walls,and covenant Boarding parties rush in. You cock back your rifle and let them have it as your men rush to grab weapons and amor. Cling cling cling!! as you fire off round after round splitting a covenant's wig in two.Then you see your men come back down with assualt shotguns and start peppering the combines tail gate,Boys in the hood style. Your team has managed to defeat the first wave,but if you stay you will surely die, so you must make your way with your team to alpha deck. Inorder to board the escape pods, you have to cross several overrun sectors where the covenant are in force,and are taking prisoners. You run across a hallway firing in a spray and pray firing style,becuase you dont have time for fun and games. You are a Marine, a tool of war, meant to Kill all who wish you harm or give you a sideways glance. By the time youve ran through all of the hallways youve mad it to alpha deck,but the pilots of the pods are taking off. quickly you and your men make it to the last pod,and hop on board,strap yourselves in and are ready for an express elevator ride to hell,going down! The pod shoots downward towards a halo shaped ring. you look out the window for some type of peace but find none,in the faces of dead frozen faces,staring back at you with their black,penatrating holes where their eyes used to be. You stare off back at them,shuddering thinking better them than me,then theres a slap noise followed by a rapid jerking sound. You have begun entering halo's atmosphere,you brace for impact 5,4,3,2,1 says the pilot as she eases the brakes on. The pod slams down on the surface,with such force the pilot is thrown clean through the windsheild,and is nothing but a paste on the ground ahead.
Mission2-Search and Rescue.....you step out of your pod disoreinted,dizzy,and pissed. The rest of your men shake the impact off and wonder why they joined the marines again. They found out,quickly enough when a banshee does a strafing run,across the pod destroying it,in a mass of firey glory. twisted metal,and charred bodies litter the area around the impact site, its time to get out of here, you can hear covenant dropships flying nearby. You grab the nearest rifle and tell your men,to get live,and if little red riding hood comes along with a cannon and a attitude to tend the bitch,if not whoever isnt is going to be sorry. All of you make a mad dash through the woods,as covenant forces scan the area for life,your first sergeant stares at you......"sir,with a do respect we dont stand a chance in hell against them,and you know it." you reply in a simple reply of.."No,I dont know 1Sgt,there is only one thing I demand from my men and that is loyalty till death,but before dishonor" .....Your 1st.sergeant thinks about this and reconsiders his postion and finally agrees with you. At the end of your conversion you start getting radio calls from pelican dropships,saying that they are looking for survivors. You are hesitant at first,but over come this and speak cooly into the radio"Zhenja1 this Alpha Squad,whats your bearing?over." The pelican responds "Alpha Squad this is zhenja1,we are aproximately 3 clicks from your present location,move into the grid coordinates ID35 degrees.over" (theme song pops in at this point)Ok boys you heard them on your feet lets haul ass on out of here,Marines...... Your team follows your orders to the letter and stands up,then you and your team make your way through densely forested areas,that are just traps ready to spring.
This is all I have at the moment tell me what you think.:)

Someone make it! make it! I'll play! Not really into modding, but I'll help if I can (or just get in the way if you need someone to do that, lol).
I got flamed for posting this in another forum,they said it was stupid and people like armored behemoths. Then they also told me the dialogue is yucky,and that im going to get pwned for this so. I dont think people like this idea, even though I do like it alot. I need to hand over command of the mod to someone..... the only thing I can do is the mission details,and what their about, im a good story teller.:)
if anyones interested in taking this idea please feel free to do so.......just rember who gave you the idea.:p

I could make the player into a Marine for you without too much trouble...if and when it comes to that, let me know.
ok thanks rookie,now things are looking up.......ill pm you once we get more people and have a team.
Curse you EA!

HOLY *^!!! I could use a mod like that. Playing as a Marine would make the game a lot more difficult. They don't have shields, remember?

You play the library and your dead in 5 seconds from the flood infection forms. The only problem is adding facial expression and lipsynching to the marine since the MC's are hidden by the helmet.
[COLOR=blue]i want to play as a marine! and can some one tell me how to make mods im just starting.[/COLOR]
The marines could pick up the sheild things on the ground or steal one fromn a jackal.:naughty: That way they wouldnt die so quickly, I think a knife would do lift my heart for this mod,or a bayonet.
About halo2,umm.....yeah that could work too,but I like the halo world better,than Earth. Plus I hate with a passion that stupid burst fire battle rifle,I want to kill who ever thought it would be cool,to replace the original.:mad: The only plus side is destroyable warthogs and vechiles which are a plus.;)
