For my first map review, I thought i'd start off with something awesome.

A conversion of the Cryo Bay level from the 'Combat Evolved' campaign so that it works in 'Halo Custom Edition'. That alone is just awesome. smile

So, whats special about this map you may ask? Well, a few things really. Although I hate writing biographies, I'll do this in the style of a pros and cons list.

-Able to spawn Marines, Brutes (new variant) and Grunts through the new AI option in the pause menu
-Uses a new Spartan model based off the C.Q.B. armour permutation in Halo 3
-Halo 2 weapons including the Carbine, SMGs and a single Covenant Turret which can be picked up and placed in a open area where it will stay for the rest of the match.
-New human weapon included. I don't reconize it but it would've made a good replacement for the Assault Rifle.

-Model stretches on the shoulders of the C.Q.B. Spartan model
-Textures on visor were not done well
-A Brute Spiker is included but doesn't appear to actually fire spikes

Overall, I love this mod and I can't wait to see what comes next from Gamma927

Pillar of Autumn - Cryobay (2.0) - Readme  
Readme File:
This pack includes the a10a v2 map, as well as a customized main menu based off of the level.

What makes this map special? The ability to spawn AI in the pause menu. At first glance, it looks
like another new MP map of the original a10, but once you go to the pause menu, you can spawn AI.

There are two buttons of note.

*Place: Puts down AI. Once they're dead, they don't respawn

*Respawn: Allows the AI to respawn.

There are also 2 new devmode commands, for those interested.

Command | Effect
*clean | *Kills all AI on map
*stop_respawn| *AI stop respawning

For feedback, contact me on Xfire: Gamma927
Or, send me a PM through Halomaps.

Put the a10av2.map file inside the folder
C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Halo Custom Edition/maps

Optional: Put the ui.map file inside the C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Halo Custom Edition/maps folder

This is Build 1.1.1046.0000

This seems like a very good mod. If you could make this even bigger, you'd have quite the project. Very nice Rock

ugly brute looks like he's smiling... wtf...

He's not smiling. Its a helmet. And 'ugly brute', lol? Tell me, whenever have you seen a 'handsome brute'? They are alien apes. I doubt their 'good looks' comes first in most situations, lol.

Does this work with halo trial? I really want to play one
more campaingn map before I decide to buy.cool

I am not quite sure to be totally honest since I bought the full game, downloaded 'Halo Custom Edition' which is what this mod is for, and never bothered with Halo Trial.

You can try it on the trial game as I see nothing is really stopping you from trying in the first place.

Why do people want to mod the trial game anyway? The full game is so cheap to buy these days.
