Introduction


We have been searching for an experienced coder for quite sometime, a couple of weeks ago I got contacted by an experienced coder who works mainly on the quake engine. After talking about the details we came to a conclusion that it would be best to get a few coders and change the mods name. The new name has not yet been decided but it won't include the words *Halo* as we want to be legal.The first build of engine Solitude-Z has been givin for testing purpose's.

The engine

Solitude-Z is a modified quake engine based off the ZQuake source code. We have removed unneeded features and replaced them with more worth while features.So far we have modified the quake engine to support half life (one) map format which means that we will have a 256 pallet for each texture instead of a 256 pallet for the whole game.here are a few screenshots of our engine running counter strike maps.



Isnt that an improvement.

We have also started animating our spartan model.Here is a sneak peak at the spartan model rotating holding the trusty assault rifle.


Thats all for now , i hope this was enough for you guys ( Three updates in less then a week, are we going mad !) Please show your support by voting. Getting into the top 100 would be great , couldnt ask for more.

Mod of the Year Awards

the Flaming Ice team.

That looks a whole lot better, will that still work on the PSP okay?
Will you also be changing the name of characters and objects?

If they did that then it wouldn't be halo - on there site they said that the only thing they are changing is the name :)

I remember way back when i made the joke halo psp with the CS Halo model on a then unreleased Iris Engine. I'm glad you guys are serious and putting the effort into your game, I'm not a halo fan and I probably never will be but I'll be charging my PSP up for this game guys, really great show!

I understand about having to change the name... perhaps just calling it "solitude" would work? Or maybe you should go off some element of the singleplayer story you might be working on...

I dunno, you're the devs :P

It's a shame that we don't see more Halo based mods on other popular PC games. Ever since Halogen got foxed, there has been an inherent paranoia associated with making Halo based mods, which is sad considering how much the franchise could benefit from a source based or CryENGINE2 based mod.
