HMT 3.5, in utilities at files.halomods.com Beware, it's not very easy to use, and if you don't know what you're doing you can seriously f**k up your game. Ask for help on the forums there.

Didn't know that. Anyway, HMT is for swapping metas to do cool things. I swapped the flamethrower defoliant thingy with the vehicle slip, so now whenever my Warthog slides, flames shoot out from the tires. It's sweet.

In that case, don't use the defoliant tag, use the one for char. It's a lot better looking.

I don't want to screw my game up can some one help me? ok so i downloaded HMT.v3.5 which contained programs like halo map tools, plugins and programs that are used by maptools (i think) that im not sapost to open. Well i was reading the tutorial on line and it said to make some folders like Carousel extract, Carousel BSP build and others. I did that step (i know im not that far) but the next step is very confulsing, i'll just copy and paste what it says.

Extracting Your Base Map

First things first, you need to batch extract you're Multiplayer Map that you are using as a base - in this case it's carousel. Open carousel.map in HMT, and go to Tools->Extract->Batch Extract to bring up the batch extract window.

- Choose "C:\Project\Carousel Extract" as the "Extract To" folder. - Check the Extract Metadata checkbox - Click Start Batch Extraction - Choose YES for the "Extract BSP?" prompt

I dont get what this means i think i have to go to halo maps folder and pick a map to extract. I want to do blood gultch, The problem is i don't know how to batch extract or what HMT (it might have something to do with the folder and stuff in it that i downloaded cause it has the same name) is and how to open maps using HMT

I know that im not to the next step yet but if someone could tell me what that means to it'd be so helpful. The step says:

While we still have carousel.map loaded, we also need to extract it's bsp/model areas. so that they can be recombined with the SP BSP later on

- Go to Tools->Extract->BSP/Model Sections - Choose "C:\Project\Carousel BSP Build" as the destination folder

While we still have carousel.map loaded, we also need to extract it's bsp/model areas. so that they can be recombined with the SP BSP later on

if anybody knows what these instructions mean or how to get started makeing mods (i'll worry about moveing the numbers around and actually changeing the level later) than it will be a great help. thanks in advance. mjm8787
