First a History of a old home... copy and pasted from its ashes.
...as such, after a year I felt it was finally time to move one. The post I made there wasHalo modding was started by Grenadiac and a few others, with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved for the Xbox. Modding started off small, with very few members. As the ideas grew, and more people became involved, the small community expanded to Halomods.com, one of the premier Halo modding sites. Run by Grenadiac and Iron_Forge, Halomods.com thrived for several years, growing with countless hours of community research and developments with Halo modding. With the release of Halo 3 on the Xbox 360, however, modding was nearly shut down entirely. Typical users are unable to produce and use modifications for Halo 3 on the Xbox 360 without a development kit, which is out of reach of the vast majority of members. This led to a steady decline in activity in Halo modding, and the eventual decline of Halomods.com as a whole. In early 2009, SourceGuy took over the site from Grenadiac, who no longer had the funds to support it. SourceGuy gave the site and forums a facelift in hopes of attracting new members, but it was to no avail. The decline continued, and he would eventually begin the process of changing the focus of the site away from Halo modding, and into a general game modding site. As people opposed this transition, they were removed from the community by way of force, which would only accelerate the death of the site, as the people who had been there for years, building it up, were now being purged en masse. [http://rework3d.com/] was founded to provide an alternative site for the continuation of the community that is being shunned by the leadership of Halomods.com for having a dissenting opinion."
So here I am. More on history later.Originally Posted by INSANEdrive
