Slowly building to world domination.... slowly but surely

Well, I'm back, albeit with a 128mb video card, read on peoples (BAD, GOOD, and UGLY)

Posted by mechgt5 on Jan 18th, 2013

Well, after an unimaginably long wait, I found a dusty old something or another video card in my parents desk drawer. It cant model, or load youtube :'(, but it can run and test ZH. So, that being said time for the bad and good news.

the good:
Recovered all of the (req) mod files
Have most programs to start the mod back
new HDD

The Bad (well terrible)
HDD containing all of my personal data, backups (irony), music (53gb), all games, raw textures and models
CRASHED, and all was lost (literally crashed, took it apart, motor overheated and blew apart[wtf, didnt know that was possible])
Im starting college soon so waay less time than before
HCW is being a PITA right now and crashing constantly (get into game, start to play against AI, 30sec later, I EXPLODE!)
ANND im starting to outgrow the modding scene, real life has taken a hold of me now

SO after all of that, I am saying.

If I do not change focus and decide to start again>>

TWO WEEKS RELEASING EVERYTHING, mod assets and all to people I deem worthy enough to finish it, and with fast internet, the files are over 25gb total.. TO APPLY PM ME WITH DETAILS OF YOUR PREVIOUS MODDING EXP

Great to see that you're back. I just hope you can re-discover your enthusiasm for modding and gaming. Real life gets in the way for all of us at some point but i think you should stick at it even if you are only able to put an hour or two in per week.
To quote what you have written "Slowly building to world domination.... slowly but surely"
I think this game even if it only even gets partially finished will be great, especially seeing as now mircosoft and 343 have taken over halo it's really going down the pan.
I would help but i have absolutely no modding experience whatsoever so wouldn't know where to start.
