This file adds new Warthogs to the Bloodgulch map. Seems to be fun, so try it out :)
For HaloPC.Retail:BloodGulch By: Iron_Forge & ZexGX Whats New ---------- ~ MC Run ~ Tired of wandering around on all fours, MC decided to live life in the fast lane. Instead of ducking when the 'duck key' is pressed, MC will now stand up tall and run circles around his peers. ~ Civvie ~ The Civilian Warthog has been developed as a non-military vehicle with long travel on highways in mind. As such it moves considerably faster, and was never intended for offroading (but since when does that stop us?) It does tend to land on its wheels. For public safety, the turret has been removed, with a handy storage cooler added in its place, just right for a picnic. ~ Grenade Warthog ~ The Humans have discovered the secrets held within the plasma grenades, and have modified a turret to fire a modified version, from a mew steel diamond plated warthog no less. ~ Covenant Warthog ~ Not to be outdone, the covenant have taken one of the human craft, and converted it to their liking, complete with a wraith mortar turret. ~ Back Seat Driver ~ All vehicles are now drivable from the passenger seat. This lets you get a whole new perspective on driving, not to mention leaves your hands free for weapon use. Installation ------------- ~ Open bloodgulch.map, and batch extract the meta with HMTv3. ~ UnRar the patch rar over the extracted meta, replacing the files. ~ Rebuild the map. ~ Apply bitmaps.patch.ppf to bitmaps.map. ~ Enjoy! ~ See detailed installation below if confused. Thanks ------- ~ ZexGX was back on board with me every step of the way with this mod, much like Banshee Wars. I still stare in awe at his amazing texture abilities. From ideas to playtesting, I hope any future mods will continue to be a joint effort. ~ Monoxide has been a great help with everything. He is an incredible asset to the community, and HMT has made mods like this to the point where anyone can do them with a minimal understanding of the map format and meta. ~ Grenadiac is also a great source of inspiration with SparkEdit. Tools like these require desire and dedication to produce, and help make everyones life alittle easier. ~ Dmauro who remains a friend, will always be the king of modding. He deserves everyones respect and admiration. No mod I ever make will lack roots from his work. Detailed Installation ---------------------- ~ Place bloodgulch.map in its own folder, and open it in HMT from this folder. You may wish to disable plugins under options to avoid getting errors about bitmaps.map. These errors are of no concern at this point because we do not need to work with bitmaps. ~ Select Tools, Batch Extract. Click the browse button, to select the folder that you placed bloodgulch.map in, check the 'Extract Metadata' checkbox, and click start batch extraction. ~ Open the rar file, and extract to the same folder. If you have already extracted the rar elsewhere, you can simply cut and paste all the folders from the rar into the new folder you created. If asked, yes you wish to replace all files which have the same name. ~ Back in HMT, select Tools, Rebuild Map. Click the browse button beside the 'original map' textbox, and select the bloodgulch.map file in the folder you created. Select the build button. ~ Once complete, there should now be a bloodgulch.map.rebuild.map in the folder you created. Copy this to your HaloPC\MAPS\ folder, and rename it to bloodgulch.map (You must rename the original bloodgulch.map to bloodgulch.bak first if you have not already.) ~ Also in the rar, was a bitmaps.patch.ppf. Use PPF-O-Matic to apply this to your bitmaps.map folder. ~ Enjoy! ~ (firstname.lastname@example.org)
