    ~No longer in development.

    For those of you who don't know what Halo is, don't bother posting unless you do a little research.

    I want to make a UTM(Ultimate Terraining Map) of the Halo Universe. This is like an entire collection of models. This UTM will mainly focus on units, not doodads. Furthermore, I don't give a CRAP if you think this isn't a UTM. So please, don't post things saying stuff like that.

    It shouldn't be too hard. There are already a few resources like the Spartan by Aznwhore and my Elite.

    If you wish to help me, here is the team I need:
    Finder-a person who can meander through thousands of unexplored websites to find out any similar models.
    Modeller-at least one who can make good quality geometric shapes
    Modeller-another modeller who can do average quality edits
    Animator-very important role, needs to be able to animate smoothly
    Skinner-an awesome master of computer 2D art
    Skinner-a back-up person that can just fill in for the skins

    Currently the spots that are available:
    Finder - Hevenblood - an awesome, resourceful helper, and the first to join!
    Primary Modeller - -Peper-, an adept modeller able to create excellent works
    Secondary Modeller - Revilo, one who can animate neatly and create cool geometry
    Animator - Superz ze Man, once our former primary modeller, but now seeking to animate
    Animator - Arisaitou, a cool animator with a few models of his own
    Wrapper/Backup Modeller - Goolygot, an experienced wrapper(no, not like Ice Cube) that applies my textures and can do small animations
    Skinner/Animator - Me, GhostThruster

    As for me, I can do basic model edits, below-decent skinning, and kick-ass concept art/creative drawing (I'm not totally useless :p).

    If you want to help, please post an application. I can't do this without everyone's help. Thank you.

    And yes, if we do edit models or stuff, we will ask permission first.

    Progress report here

    Current finished* credits list: *Only finished or near finished models
    Map team - GhostThruster, Hevenblood, *Superz ze Man, -Peper-, Izanagi, Goolygot, Revilo
    *former members of the team
    Special thanks to Forgotten_Warlord and Fingolfin, who helped us considerably.

    There is a really awesome weapon pack,that Kimberly made to go with the Spartan model.
    Can be found here: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/showpost.php?p=343423&postcount=16

    Also, Fingolfin is making a banshee model. You might want to ask him about it, and the progress. Link: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/modeling-animation-276/banshee-model-wips-144388/

    I could be a finder, if the position is still open.

    I will try to update you with any model that I see to fit any of the categories missing.
    PM me if you want to about any progress.

    P.S. I am a huge Halo fan :grin:

    Fingolfin also has a lot more Halo Doodads/units go ask him for them.

    You're in, Hevenblood. You could be a really good helper.

    @L2Love: Yeah, I know, but for this UTM, I'm focusing on units mainly.

    Please, more people join! It is very possible to do this! I made an icon and an avatar to prove it!

    Jeez, you'd be helpful if we were making a melee map, but I'm trying to make a UTM, which isn't playable, but is a database of Halo resources.
    Good luck, Hevenblood, I hope you whip up some nice models!

    @Miss Foxy: There's always a spot for Encouragement Givers :]

    @Eldubs:
    Here is the list of models I need to make the UTM complete:
    UNSC Units:
    Marine
    ODST
    Mongoose
    Warthog - finished
    Hornet
    Pelican
    Scorpion
    Spartan - finished

    UNSC Weapons:
    Assault Rifle - finished
    Pistol - finished
    Battle Rifle - finished
    Sub-Mach-Gun - finished
    Shotgun - finished
    Sniper Rifle - finished
    Rocket Launcer - finished
    Spartan Laser - finished
    Frag Grenade - finished

    Covenant Units:
    Grunt
    Jackal
    Brute
    Elite
    Hunter
    Drone - near-finished, needs flying anims
    Ghost - finished
    Banshee - Fingolfin is working on one
    Wraith - finished
    Phantom - finished

    Covenant Weapons:

    Plasma Pistol - finished
    Plasma Rifle - finished
    Needler - finished
    Carbine - finished
    Beam Rifle - finished
    Fuel Rod Cannon - finished
    Spiker - finished
    Mauler - finished
    Brute Shot - finished
    Energy Sword - finished
    Plasma Grenade - finished

    Others:
    Flood Infection - finished
    Flood Human Infection
    Flood Elite Infection
    Flood Carrier
    Crawler Form
    Hanger Form
    Trasher Form
    Sentinel - finished

    Finished means I have an exact model that will remain the same as I add it into the UTM.
    Found means I have found a potential model to add into the UTM.
    Blank means I either need scratch-making or finding.

    I have added some models to the UNSC, and I plan to remake most of them.

    Bullshit! I am the biggest!

    Okay, let's say it is a tie, but anyways, you could be a secondary finder, though I must say, Hevenblood has been kick-ass at his job.

    Just wanted to let you know, if you're focusing on units more then modelling, you can't call it UTM, wich more like UUM maps. :p (Ultimate Units Map)

    Anyway, good luck with it :D

    Thanks chillla, I dunno why it got disapproved in the first place :(

    @Fan: Thanks. Well, the Outland UTM is mainly units as well.
    You're a modeller right? Can you model for this project? I'm lacking in modellers! If not, can you be like a part-time modeller that just does easy edits?

    Why do we need a UTM anyways? And if your the biggest halo fan then when did you finish the halo reach campaign?

    Why do we need Diablo 3 Warcraft? Why do we need TKoK? Why do we need all the other UTMs out there? Why are you suddenly so hostile?
    If you want to start an argument, find another thread. You don't need to finish a Halo campaign to be a fan, you just need to love Halo. I haven't done the Reach campaign, but I'm a fan enough to try to pull together resources to make a Halo UTM in Wc3.

    I agree with Eldubs... We don't really need a UTM for halo.

    Just a note - this isn't a UTM really, a UTM (Ultimate Terraining Map) focuses on doodads models for terrain art. Being unit models it's more just a collection of Halo models for use in map making (Ultimate Halo Pack or something? idk).

    I noticed some models you said needed to be edited to be used, please note that your either going to need the original creators permission or start a new one from scratch for that sort of thing.


    About the "why do we need one?" Well we don't really, we don't really need any of the resources in the site's database. Does that mean it's not worth making anyways? No, if someone wants to make a collection that they consider useful for themselves and others why not really?

    If you can find someone willing to model this sort of thing, then go ahead - though I'm kinda curious what Ghost is actually going to do on this, all the "positions" are essentially everything that's necessary - what are you yourself going to do?
