Greetings Everyone who watches this mod, for those who do not know me I'm Madiba127 one of
the larger members for the omega group
and for when HaloRTS was under the lead of X3N the head
Mapper and Campaign Designer.

With the last post for HaloRTS it was said that HaloRTS had stopped production due to all the data being
lost for the Mod, however with that accident comes some great news, i have decided to revive the mod
and continue it from a new beginning, as we only have access to the alpha Code.

So because of this, please consider the mod to have just started

Here is the plan of action for HaloRTS:

  • We Still plan on using the Omega Camera and the HUD Designs.
  • 2 Sides will be in the Mod, its undecided if the flood will be in or not
  • We Plan on making the Bases have more effects to them, so they look more like a base and not just structures
  • the Assault Carrier will make it in the mod, i hope to make it the "construction Yard", the frigate might make it in
  • Transport Units will be buildable, they could attack in Halo so they can attack in HaloRTS
  • A Campaign that is not based from the Books or Games From Halo (continuation from what was being planned before i took over)
  • The Forum is now The Only Place we will take suggestions, so you can all Improve on peoples ideas and provide input to make them better, The forum can be found Here

Those are just some of the plans that we hope to go towards and more will be added


To End this News post, we are looking for some members to help make this project even better, this is what we are looking for:

  • Music Composer (We hope to have our own soundtrack to use)
  • Mappers: Halo Has some maps that would look great if they could come to this mod, even our own halo inspired maps would be cool
  • Texture Artists, Modelers and more

We have some models we can use for the mod, but most are untextured so we need members who can texture them, both Covenant and UNSC designs, but of cause we don't have all the models, so modelers are required to help out in making these designs.
If anyone wants to help out then send a PM to Madiba127 and sign up to the forum linked above and on the Main Page of the mod
Please include some of your work in the PM or a link to it, we want to make this mod great fun and looking good for you guys the players and not just us the Developers



The New Team can Be Found here


Best regards.
Madiba127 - Lead for HaloRTS.

Hope restored, thanks mate. Oh and I think flood should be a playable faction, or atleast a very dangerous neutral force.

F*** yeah! Having to redo so much must be daunting. Its like dying in Minecraft in lava while carrying 20 diamonds, 140 iron ore, and 40 gold ore. You never want to play again. EVER. Hours of scouring those bottom layers. The joy of actually finding diamonds. All GONE...

Anyway, good to hear it's back. Good luck!

As long as you guys don't rip content from the Halo games and everything is 100% fan made creations, you guys will do great.

well that requires access to the game which i don't have, any models i find and download i make sure they are not rips and have the creators in the read-me files, others we have from the makers themselves

Stoked that this mod is going to come to fruition! Good luck to you team.
I recommend adding Flood as a playable faction (In skirmish). More options I say, even if it makes development a little longer. Can't wait to see what you make of it all!

Oh back alive now, eh?

You want some storyline-help? I'll be most supportive in that role. With the risk of sounding big-headed; I dont think there is a thing Halo I do not know about!

A few suggestions, team, if you wouldn't mind:
To keep the originality of the Halo universe, I suggest you properly credit the composers and use their OST under Game Content Usage Policy by Microsoft.
Secondly, cancelling the Flood would make it just like a PC adaptation of Halo Wars (which actually gives me an idea of utilizing all the features of C&C, which is a more realistic RTS, in a PC fan-remake of Halo Wars, using campaign and all stuff). If this is not to be a fan-remake, please KEEP the Flood, the Forerunners or Didact's Prometheans.
Then I would like to add that there should be a story-driven campaign. Any game, be that a shooter, strategy game or a simple game of Diplomacy; is ten times fun if a story is added to it. You can adapt the story of a Halo game, Halo Legends, or something like events happening at some other place, but during the timeline of the above mentioned Halo media (for example, several small missions about Jun's mission on Reach, parallel to Noble 6's help in delivering the Package. About how RTS can be implemented, it can be modified to Real Time Tactics instead of Strategy, which means you have limited forces and you have to complete mission with them only, or make it that Jun captures an outpost and leads an assault on Covenant). Thirdly you can make a story entirely on your own. You can adapt "The Elites" (ask me for link), a fanon story about a group of three extremely loyal Covenant Elites, and how a simple war changes their life and thinking.
That will be all for now.
