Most of you are probably familar with Halo: Combat Evolved, one of the greatest video games ever created, especially for the Xbox system. I've been hacking this game for a very long time now, and after running out of ideas, I've decided to make a Halo Bloodgulch Futurama theme mod revolving mainly around this forum.

The first thing on the to-do list is to edit the main textures in the map. These include everything from the Assault Rifle bitmap to the actual grass in the level. One of these many many MANY (I mean MANY) textures that will be edited is the "Bloodgulch Cliff Rock" bitmap (the image you see as the actual walls in this level). I'm thinking on just doing what was done about a month ago at Haloskins.com where one of the hackers there placed all of our names on the wall of the level (or those who asked anyway) but you had to have a modchip in order to see it. After learning how to do this, I've decided to do the same with the members here, you've just gotta give me the name you want to see on the wall, and instead of going out and modding your Xbox just so you can view your name on the wall, I'm gonna make a video filming every name on the wall, plus all of the other countless mods that will be incorperated into the deep metadata of this map.

SO, with that said, I'll just lay out the basic 'jist' of what I'm trying to say:

If you want your name/forum alias to be in this mod (which thousands of people in another very popular hacking site [www.xbox-scene.com] will be viewing and playing in), put your name up here and I'll add it to the OHBFPSTM (Official Halo Bloodgulch Futurama PEELified Super Theme Mod) wall for all to see.

If you are an UberMod, Admin, or other "Forum boss" type (if you even ask  big grin ) I'll add your name to a more "sure-to-be-seen" area of the level. Like maybe on the Assault Rifle's stock, or maybe on the inner roof of the Teleporter Shaft, the bottom or top of the hog, the little arrow that appears above an allies head, the frag or plasma grenades, tires, treads, turrets, weapons, shells, ammunitions, panels, lights, rockets, bolders, rocks, leaves, trees, sky, debris, clouds, lens flares, smoking animations, flaming animations, blood splats, character faces, pause screen recognition, you name it...

Anyway, I hope enough of you put your names here so that I can continue with this mod anyway. I can probably fit about 100 names on the wall itself and if you'd like, I can include a small image of your choice next to your name (for whatever reason). This entire mod will have various futurama images plastered all over the entire level (ie, everthing from a gigantic Suited Amy on one of the moons in the sky to a HUGE Fry and Leela billboard across each of the bases. Weapon mods, decal changes, even those little logos on the panels on top of each base (much like in Unreal Tournament) will have Futurama based images all over. The game physics and weapon/vehicle physics will be modded in various ways, and even projectiles as well.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! The very floor and ground of the level itself will be set to a Futurama based layout, and I'm going to edit the model of one or two of the weapons to look exactly like that of the Wind-up Rifle thing that was used in 'War is the H-Word', and the actual projectile (bullet  smile ) that is fired from the Rifle will be edited in Photoshop as one of the many .DDS files to look exactly like that of the episode. AND the Master Cheif already has dark green armor and an orange semi-translucent visor as is, so there's the Futuramistic-armor problem solved for you right there.

Lots of other smaller, most likely un-noticable mods will be incorporated as well. So if you've got a modded Xbox, this mod is going to be Futurama heaven for you.

If you don't, your still going to be in the mod video whether you like it or not, because I'm going to make a long Halo Mod video for this entire level afterwards.

Anyway, I'll show you a few of the things I've modded as I come along, but until then, all of you who want your names on the OHBFPSTM, just post it here and I'll get to work. I'll be doing plenty of that for the next week or so anyway!   tongue

"Winna Nick" will do just fine...  roll eyes

Nah, this sounds like a really cool idea  big grin

Btw.... did I say I'm special?  I'm not sure in what but it's probably something good.

It will work, as long is your editing the textures. For example:

Winna wants 'Winna Nick' to be on the wall, so I open up the Bloodgulch.map file that I FTP'd from my Xbox (with the use of a modchip) and opened it in a Halo Hacking program, called Halo Map Tools (v3), and then opened up the Bitmap section:



I found the levels/bloodgulch/blood cliff rock bitmap and extracted it:



I then opened it up in Adobe Photoshop (cuz only Adobe can open this type of bitmap considering its a .dds):



I add the text to part of the rock texture:



And I can then add the persons avatar if they have one next to their name:



Bare in mind the end result will be much smaller in reality. Plus, that's one down. Anyway, here's the finished video. Enjoy    smile (Winna, this is only a test video for your name showing an example, but half of the video is also a large character PEEL Mod plus a few some other extras, so I hope you don't mind that I left out the Nick part):

@Grim: I think I'm going to covert this mod to work for HPC also after it's complete, but I'm using Halo Xbox as first because it has the overall best graphics engine. And most people who have HPC have Halo Xbox already, so you see how it is.

@M0le: I'm adding your name now. Would you like to have your avatar next to your name as well?

@Nurdbot: I would slap your avatar on the ceiling if there was one. But, as you can see at the end of the video, the closest element in that map to a 'ceiling' are the clouds. So unless you want a hardly legible image smeared across the clouds, might I suggest a less unyeilding area of the level? Like maybe a lower wall cavity, or on a metal slab on the outskirts of a building?

@Winna: Thanks  smile

That gives me an idea. Considering there are loads of places and textures to put names, how bout I just let you choose exactly where you want your names in the level? It sounds better to me, so what the hell... here's a list of every editable area in the game (that I'm willing to forever engrave your names into anyway  smile ):

Editable Vehicles:

Warthog parts:
-Bumper
-Tires
-Hubs
-Running board
-Top of LAAG (Gatlin Gun)
-Left panel of LAAG Chamber
-Right panel of LAAG Chamber
-Mounting swivel carrier (the steel curvature that holds the LAAG to the Warthog itself
-Warhog hood (I can probably fit 3-4 names on the hood itself)
-Main left chassis (about 3 names worth)
-Main right chassis (same amount)
-Upper Bumper (LAAG step-up)
-Driver seat (actual fabric on seat)
-Passenger seat
-Swivel turret standing-plate
-Radar screen

Scorpian:
-Main driver turret (anywhere)
-Tread covers

Buildings:

Red base:

-Main Red Base symbol block (steel block panels surrounding upper base)
-Entry ramps (anywhere)
-Teleporter (anywhere)
-Inner base walls (anywhere)
-Red Base floors
-Out base uprooted walls
-Red Flag

Blue Base:
-Main Blue Base symbol block
-Entry ramps
-Teleporter
-Inner base walls (anywhere)
-Blue base floors
-Outer base uprooted walls
-Blue Flag
Scenery:
-Usual outside walls (the ones you saw in the above posts)
-Anywhere on entire ground surface

Those are all of the more "special" areas where your name can be, just pick one and tell me your name. Winna, if you want your name to be on one of these just tell me and I'll move it.

[Zoidberg]Make with the names![/Zoidberg]

On a side note, the Positron Shooter mod is turning out great so far, all that's needed now is a new skin and some projectile tweaking and it'll be perfect for the DOOP check! Here it is so far:


Basic new Positron model


After some coloring...

A little more purple and other more detailed changes and it's finished for the video. And that's everything to know so far...almost.

Nice work, Amy's Soldier.

Put my name on the front bumper of the Warthog.  That way, when you run people over, it'll be the last thing that they see.

I think he means the ceiling of one of the bases at either end of the map.

As for me, if you could plop "LAN.gnome" (avatar not included) onto the front middle of the ghosts, it'd be great. I love those things.  cool

Thank God it's FRIday, I've got plenty of time to work on this now.

David A, your name is placed snuggly directly on the Winch, right about nose level for any unlucky hitch-hikers   smile. The bumper was just too small to be edited.

MOle, I placed your name along with your avatar on the front hood area of the hog, right above the Winch.

LAN.gnome, your name is curved up each of the wings on the Ghost (the actual 'front' of the Ghost wasn't directly editable).

And Nurdbot, I'm working on your's right now. I think you'll all be very happy with the results   smile.

You'll have to wait to see the ingame result until the real video is out.

niiiiice work. I would love it if you could put 'olie 4 Tori' like in a heart thinggy, just like at school, ya know. If i could ask for a place i'd have to say in the cave bit. that would be so great. Real nice work by the way, on well everything. if you could replace the texture of the tread print from the hog to say somthing... 'nagrub loves road kill would be cool' like as if its written on the tyre. you could even write it there too!that would be really cool.

Thanks Nazgrub, actually, you can edit the Scorpian Tank and Warthog tread marks to leave text prints, but only in snow :/ . Considering there isn't any snow in Bloodgulch, I'll use Cartographer (another program, thanks Dev's) to add snow tracks to the hog in BG, then edit them that way...I think. Also, "Orie 4 Torie in a heart" will work perfectly on the Rock Wall Texture for the cave texture.

As for the double and triple posts, I was just in the middle of editing one of the hog textures, so I didn't take much thought into using the edit button; too lazy at the moment. I'll do that from now on.

Xmpel, I think you and SixByNine will like where your names are   big grin too.

Nibbler, that Gir pic is perfect for a clean part of the inner base, maybe even a frame   smile. NibblerJr on a frame with Gir in his dog suit in the pic, IN THE BASES. Pretty odd, but whatever floats the boat.

About editing characters to look like Fry and the rest of the characters, it is entirely possible, but very difficult. I can edit the textures of the current character models easily to make it appear as though Fry/Leela/Amy/etc were actually in the suit, I could even modify the armor to accomodate each individual character's body (ie, Leela/Amy's hips (Amy's height   smile ), Fry's simple posture, or just model out Bender's body for the game (THAT is perfectly possible, he's easy enough).

Anyway, better get back to work. So far that's about 10 or 11 names. Even if we don't make it to 50, that's just more open spots for the rest of you   smile.

I believe the correct term is pwnz, but anyway:I think an "easier" way to do the whole futurama thing is if you just took the helmets off and then just put heads on. It wouldnt be totally easy,at least I don't think, but it would be easier, at least I think.

The Pilot character and marines are the only characters that you can actually take (and by take, I mean delete) the helmets off of unfortunetely. The Master Cheif's helmet, however, is it's own model (he has no pliable head anywhere in the model) so I'd have to shrink the helmet to average head size, then remodel it afterwards. Either way it'd be alot of work, but what isn't?  smile

And I knew I messed up on the flag somewhere. How in the hell could I have missed that? I guess I don't think strait late at night like others do...I'll fix that now along with David A's Winch name.

And one more thing, I don't want to get ahead of myself, but does anyone think I should try a hover car mod? That'd probably be the easiest mod out of all of them anyway, but if you think it'd take to long, I'll leave it out...the Warthog is the easiest model to modify besides the MC's suit  smile.

HOLY GOD OF ALL ARSENALS, That thing is awesome! What episode is that from? That's my brand new sub objective. Everyone look forward to driving one of those baby's as soon as I get the names complete...*drools*.

As for modding your Xbox, I wouldn't do anything until you read how to mod your box completely, otherwise you might find yourself with a useless black box and a hole bunch of self pity. I suggest www.Xbox-scene.com  for any and all information you could possibly want to know regarding modding your Xbox. It took me about half a year to learn how to do it completely, but if you really want it done enough, you'll take the time to learn how and do it yourself. As for Xbox Halo modding in general, I prefer visiting these forums for any modding information regarding Halo. I go as Fry_Bot there.

After this mod (and all that that implies) is finished, I'll hand out detailed tutorials for anyone who wants to know how to mod your Xbox and hack Halo, or instead of waiting, you could just go here  smile.

Anyway, for anyone who's getting impatient for a Progress Report on this mod, hold on a little longer. I'll have a clip showing a few model mods ingame soon enough, 1 that should grab your attention in particular
  flirt  ...

A few more names and this mod will have a base statis well enough to make a beta .ppf (a .ppf is a patch of the mod that others can download in order to play your modded game) for anyone with a modded box, and for everyone at those Halo Hacking forums and Xbox-Scene to slobber over. And if no one heard before, there are over 9000 members there, so get ready for some publicity    tongue  .


Footnote: BobbyKing, Nagrub, and NibblerJr, I'm adding your names now to their specified locations.
