Hey guys, first post here. I'm going to keep this short and sweet heh.

Inspired by the recently released Halo:Reach, I decided to go back and start having fun with the textures in Halo 1 for PC. This texmod will work with both Halo:PC and Halo Custom Edition (assuming the textures I changed aren't changed in custom maps)

The only other mod used is Enb Series for a bit of Bloom. Watch In HD if you can.


Here is a link to a quick youtube video I made. So far I only worked on textures from the 2nd level, but I plan to try to get most of the game done. This isn't a project I will abandon halfway through, I completed other texture mods for other games that took me hundreds of hours :)



I'll make an actual gameplay video next and put up some pictures soon. Anyways, thanks for stopping by. I'll have more content soon.

Looks beautiful, might I ask what the origin of these textures are?

Some of them as seen in the Pillar of Autumn level are going to be a mix between Halo's original texture with custom texture work built on top of it. Other textures like the mountain side and ground etc are just custom textures I've made around photo's I've taken and painted over the years. I have a pretty big texture library to pull from, so its been fun so far. That exact texture for the mountain was fun to make, I think its something crazy like an 8k x 2k map to get the resolution I wanted, fun though.

This does look pretty decent but when taking your screenshots try to take them without ENB running so you can actually see what its going to look like from the actual user. Most people will not use ENB for Halo cause it literally halves your frame rate when playing on it and your basically 'padding' the screenshot to have a extra look that it doesn't without running a external program. A few of the textures in the PoA do look somewhat familiar but I dont know from where nor do I care. Just keep at it and see where it leads too.

FunFact:
Most grunge/rustic textures look the same kinda anyways so it could be a misconception.

The smart way to do it would be to skin all your global items such as hud, weapons, vehicles and so forth. Internalize all the maps your going to edit then rework each maps specific level textures. If its being done in CE you wouldn't need to do that at all so it all depends on which basis its being built with either PC tools or CE.

The only problem I have with ENB is that using the post filter it does and the custom shaders you can make with it would make even stock Halo look upgraded hence why I wanted to see some screens without ENB in effect to actually see what is being done without outside .dll files manipulating anything.

Dont get me wrong, it does look good, I just would rather see it for what it is like most users are going to do.

I spent a few hours yesterday and reworked the Pilalr of Autumns textures to be mostly custom instead of just a quick dirty map thrown on top of the old ones like I had it before. I filmed a few minutes of me playing through the Pillar of Autumn. Watch it HD if you can. And Pepsi, you are right, I took off Enb series for the recording just because I know most people will probably end up not even having it.

Check it out here

Also I took a few screen shots of the updated textures as well (no enb series)

Thanks! And yes eventually I want to tackle everything. I didn't get that much time to work on it yesterday, I updated the floor texture to a really cool floor grate I saw in the Glacier firefight map in halo reach. I tried to copy the look of that texture the best I could.
