Well, with my new 3DS Max 8, I figured out how to take the Halo Models, resize them to match Empire at War, and save them in .ALO format. It's pretty much ground vehicles, but I have a few space in there (A Covenant Cruiser and The Pillar of Autumn, along with some Longswords and Jets). Anyways, this shouldn't take too long, as the models are, as I said, already done. I just need to import the Master Chief model, give him a gun, export, take the POA model, add bones, export, ect. In other words, I have a way to make a good Halo mod. It won't focus much on the Heroes, but it will have space and it is about the events leading up to and including Halo. Anyways, the 1st unit list is as follows: HUMANS: Land: Warthog Rocket Warthog Scorpion M-8 Main Battle Tank ATV Longsword Jet Marines Marine Commander Mythos Land Heroes: Master Chief Capitain Jacob Keyes Sargent Johnson Space: Longsword Jet Kedable-Class Battle Cruiser MAC Guns Kestral Space Heroes: Capitan Jacob Keys (The Pillar of Autumn) Miranda Keyes (In Amber Clad) COVENANT: Land: Ghost Banshee Wraith Drop Ship Grunt Hunter Elite Jackal Scarab Land Heroes: Arbiter Tarturus Space: Drop Ship Covenant Capital Ship Space Heroes: Prophets (High Charity) FLOOD (non-playable) Land: Flood Infection Form Elite Infection Form Marine Infection Form Flood Combat Form Flood Carrier Form This is just the 1st installment, so I only covered the basics.
That will be frigin' awesome i cant wait for the release!
You do realise that releasing this would be illegal if you are taking the models from Halo? I doubt Microsoft would give you permission, especially since they are more inclined towards shutting Halo mods down then helping set em up.
Your right there Arbiter, but you could try helping a friend of AOTCs....
Err? Assuming you were still talking to me, what do you mean by that?
But you also are forgetting the very slightly modified Halo CE stuff.
Where else do you think I'm going to get the Longswords? :D
What I'm saying is taking models from Halo games is illegal... Unless I just misunderstood that post.
The Halo CE stuff is all user-created content, so Microsoft has no involvement.
Anyways, I have a screenie:
