Anyways, here're a few more screenshots of the Covenant texture set I started working on 3 days ago:

It's looking great. I think I'll be watching this. Have you made much use of my maps? Don't worry if you haven't.

Cool screen shots.
....
Are those ghosts usable?
And out of curiosity, will there be turrets, maybe using scenery turret lua?

DO WANT! Does the Aleph One engine actually support vehicle/turret entering? The closest thing I can think of would be to change the rider's sprite, weapon behavior, speed, health/damage, etc.

The ghosts are not yet rideable - but I can try to add turrets if you like - I might be able to use the Warthog sprite as a turrent graphic then.
There's a physics model in Halathon that simulates a Ghosts driving behaviour - it allows you to play a specific map as a ghost so to speak but it doesn't support entering and exiting the machine during gameplay ofc. My scripting/lua skills are pretty much nonexistent so if I can't find some kind of workaround it won't be supported I'm afraid.


PS: I've worked on some corridors today and added the XBLA enemies to the game - here're some screenshots:

Cool, much appreciated. Turrets are a great part of Halo.
And the ghosts, my scripting skills aren't very good, but maybe I can do something workable, if you want it.

Update: I've been working on a small UNSC themed map for the last few days - it's been a pain but I think it turned out nicely.

I've attached more screenshots below
Can you believe this is not Halo? [MTongue]

Whoa! Those interiors are pretty darn impressive. If you're not using 3D models, you're quite the master of illusion.

That's amazing. But I think a nice priority should be making enemy and ally sprites now.
but just wow, those maps are detailed.

Seems like all the Halo to Marathon converters who don't simply play the xbox game thinking it's a Halo sequel are going to be mindfucked.

It is thedoctor45's scenario now, not yours, so he can decide what to do, and when to do it. Do not pressure him to get things done and let him do things when he has time.

it's ok, I'm in the process if importing/rendering the Halo 3D models now - if time permits I'll try to render all the covenant enemy sprites - otherwise I'll stick to the Master Chief and maybe the UNSC personnel and use the HD XBLA aliens for the rest.

Also I'm planning to replace most of the scenery with static 3D models from the original Halo game. I hope everything works out as planned...

why does everyone here have to be so hostile? I was only making a suggestion.

One might reassess one's grip on reality when one accuses someone as incorrigibly personable as brilliant of hostility.

It's more like: why do you have to be so defensive? And why do you have to pretend like you didn't try to tell thedoctor45 where his priorities should be, when really you should just be grateful he's doing anything at all in the first place? If you want to make a suggestion, that's fine. Just try to be more tactful about it, and you're less likely to call attention to yourself in a negative way.

I am a bit defensive, but I tend to get ganged up on here, probably because people here tend to dislike me. A lot.
Apologies to thedoctor45.

Please keep all hostility to one thread. Please.


Anyway...

Great work on this scenario!
