    =====


    ODST Bipeds for Marines and Player Characters on Campaign scenario Metropolis (New Mombasa).

    The ODST player character biped is only viewable in Third Person. Thus I have provided two versions of the Campaign and
    a list of recommended applications. The other Campaign variant is the same except for a few minor changes, specifically
    the player character remains the Master Chief.


    I used Gravemind 1.6B to make the changes, unfortunately the application has many faults such as some fields will
    not appear after viewing other fields first. Also many values are incorrect or in the wrong places. Thus I used the
    following two applications to verify the settings.


    -Entity (H2x) was used to study the original map in its unmodified XBox incarnation.

    Entity

    Halo 2 XBox maps


    -The unlocked Guerilla New (H2v) was also used to study original scenario source in its PC incarnation.

    H2MT H2EK Unlocked - Enhanced Edition

    03a_oldmombasa.scenario


    Then Mr. Mohawk v1.2 was used to swap the player's biped to that of an ODST Marine.

    Mohawk was used for the swap instead of Gravemind because it provided more consistent results.





    ALTERATIONS
    ===========


    -All Marines are ODST except the female Marine
    -Some Marines have human heads (such as Johnson)
    -Most Marines have ODST helmets (which is actually a head permutation)
    -Sometimes the player character biped will have a helmet, other times he will not

    -In one variant you play as an ODST (but this is limited to Third Person)
    -I will attempt to get this recorded when playing Co-Op

    *See the included notes file for more specifics and values


    INSTALL
    =======


    1) Before copying the file to your Halo 2\maps default maps directory you must backup the original.

    2) The filename is 03a_oldmombasa.map, so make sure you backup the original by either renaming it or by
    moving it to a backup sub-folder. I rename the original file to 03a_oldmombasa.map.ORIGINAL so I know what
    it is at a later date.

    3) Copy the new file to the same location then start Halo 2 Vista.

    4) Select Metropolis from the Campaign selection screen.

    5) For the ODST player character variant I recommend using one of the Third Person applications
    listed below. I have included these and a few more apps/mods that you may require.





    TOOLS
    =====


    Ambiguous Alpha v2.5 - for Third Person/Still Cam


    Ambiguous Beta v1.0 Pre-Release - for Real-Time Editing


    Gravemind v1.6B - for Meta Edit/Swap


    H2V Blu Trainer vK2 - for Third Person/Still Cam/Fly Cam

    *Use Entity to get exact values as Gravemind will often give incorrect values. When you open a tag in Gravemind, the model tag for example; the next field you select can dictate the next which will
    give you incorrect data. So if the second field has four sub-fields then the next field will only show the same amount of fields (even if it should have eight sub fields it would only have four,
    if the field selected before had that many).


    At the end (when you are done with any and all Gravemind edits) open the Map file with Mr. Mohawk v1.2 and then copy the Marines meta offset over the Masterchiefs. Doing it this way forces the MC to act
    like an ODST, for example they can no longer jump very high.

    However, if you want them to look like another NPC but act like the MC then use Gravemind 1.6B to swap the HLMT under the BIPD.

    ODST METROPOLIS
    change marines to odst, leave johnsons head, mc black suit, or miranda-johnson swap and swap sky to foggy sky

    new spawn point (snr - player 0): -576.7466 -631.8923 2.175157 3.13975



    Biped 11 is MC

    Biped 13 is johnson, meta edit him to odst - didn't crash and was cinematic invis but same biped

    I think Biped 18 is the first ODST

    Also works with biped!
    Does not appear to work with char, in fact it seemed to cause a strange type of white screen H2V lockup

    TRY THIS: go under globals[MATG] in the meta grid. and show idents. go down to where it shows mastercheif third person and change that

    MC A844264

    Marine A50EE34

    Miranda A9A9504



    ----------------------------------------

    Play as Miranda with Marines helping

    Play as standard Marine with Mirandas helping?

    Miranda cannot die when hlmt swapped, only with biped swap

    Try Master Chief swap by hlmt to test if shieilds work any better? remove shield attachment or null it?

    Move spawn point to end of map? Depends on scripts that would fail

    Swap Marines to Master Chief?

    updates.txt

    The main reason for these two mods is to try and get the IWHBYD skull to spawn then do that section with ODST support and the main player character as an ODST, then record it and share it on YouTube.


    I found it funny that no-one else had figured out the proper way to pull the ODST permutations out from the Marine biped. Sure, some people had done character swaps but that method only works on scenarios with the ODST as a character (such as Delta Halo). The information to do the same is included and has already been added to a few mods by other modders.



    Some things I might try to fix:

    -Convince Kant to make me a view-lock camera app for better Machinima recording and creation

    -Convince Kant to make a small app (or tweak to Blu Trainer/Ambiguous Alpha) that senses when the player exits from a vehicle so it can reset/force the camera back to third person

    -The ODST grenade throwing animation takes forever and they cannot throw very far
    IMPROVED - further throwing ability


    Hybrid - New ODST Marine Player Character setting - BIPED
    8 - Grenade Velocity
    4 - Grenade Count

    -Increase jump height by just a little
    FIXED - jumping is much better

    Fires From Camera - Checked - more dynamic firing effect in First Person
    Melee Attackers Cannot Attach - Checked

    Player - Default Team

    head - Camera Marker Name

    7.235988 - Lip Sync decay Weight
    7.235988 - Moving Turning Speed (DPS)

    Use Limp Body Physics - Checked

    2.250796 - Stationary Turning Speed
    2.1 - Jump Velocity
    0.6 - Max Soft Landing Time
    0 - Max Hard Landing Time
    0.9 - Min Soft Landing Velocity
    4 - Min Hard Landing Velocity
    8 - Max Hard Landing Velocity
    0 - Death Hard Landing Velocity
    1.7 - Stun Duration

    15 - Lock On Distance
    1.2 - Head Shot Acc Scale

    Use Player Physics - Unchecked - So the player cannot walk when throwing a nade


    -Disable Dual-wielding of weapons as the Marine biped/anims/nodes do not support it
    -Magnum
    -Needler
    -Plasma Pistol
    -Brute Plasma Rifle
    -Plasma Rifle
    -SMG
