Halo 3: Combat Evolved

Description
Halo 3: Combat Evolved
Halo 3: Combat Evolved is a mod for Halo 3 that re-creates the Halo: Combat Evolved Multiplayer and Campaign expierences within Halo 3.

IMPORTANT
As of the time of publishing the Workshop does NOT support custom audio files yet, so you will have to manually download and replace the audio files with Halo 3: Combat Evolved's audio files.

The download link can be found here. [drive.google.com] Once downloaded you will need to drop the "halo3" folder from the zip file into your Halo: MCC Directory (you can find this but right clicking MCC in your Steam Library and selecting "Browse Local Files". When asked to replace files hit Yes . (Make sure to backup the files first before replacing, if you forgot it's not a big deal as fsb files do not trigger anti cheat and you'll just have to verify your files once you're finished with the mod.

Information
The mod is HEAVILY work in progress, bugs, issues and missing content is to be expected. I am the only person working on this mod currently and remastering all levels from Combat Evolved, polishing them, ai placement, scripting and more takes a huge amount of my time so there is bound to be issues I overlook during development. If you found any bugs or have general feedback make sure to let me know!

Because this mod utilizes the Halo 3 engine, you can play through Halo: Combat Evolved's campaign with up to 4 players in online Co-Op. A few select cutscenes have also been modified to account for the increased player count.

While I wanted the mod to stay as close as possible to Combat Evolved, I eventually made the decissions to introduce cut content from Combat Evolved aswell as a few custom (non intrusive) encounters to spice up the campaign and give it a fresh coat of paint.

Cut content such as encounters, scripts, items and set pieces have been re-added.

How to Play
To play, simply just subscribe to the mod and wait until the download is finished. Once finished you need to launch MCC with EAC Disabled.

For Campaign you need to head over to Campaigns > Halo 3 > Halo 3: Combat Evolved and select any level. (Only Keyes at this time)

For Multiplayer you need to head over to Multiplayer > Custom Multiplayer > Halo 3 > Modded Maps. Unlike Campaign, all of the workshops items you've subscribed to are shown. Halo 3: Combat Evolved maps will have "Halo 3: Combat Evolved" in the end of their descriptions.

Known Issues
Campaign
Balancing is off, if you notice any specific balancing issue than please let me know!
Cutscene camera movement is janky when FPS is not locked (Only tested on 60 and 120fps, this is an issue with MCC and not the mod)
Cutscenes can't be skipped
Enemies will refer to Co-Op players as Arbiter
Ending banshees have a small chance of not spawning on Keyes

Multiplayer
Some vehicles might be missing from certain modes, to fix this you simply need to set the Vehicle spawns to "Map Default" in the MCC Custom Games settings.

But i did really enjoy this type of concept idea for Halo CE

I would have prefered Halo 2 Elites and Halo 2 flood as I find that their Halo 3 versions are pretty easy to deal with

Keeps crashing whenever I try to start it

The fuel rod gun projectile travels too fast comparing to CE

Awesome, this is exactly what Halo CE Anniversary should've been, the Halo 3 models fits much more the design of CE than the Halo CEA Reach's models. The gameplay is enhanced with the Halo 3 engine but still close enough of CE, Can't wait for this mod to be finished. :MCCHALO:
