Well guys, after a VERY long hiatus.. I'm back. Sorta...

Unfortunately, as most of you knew already, modding is no longer an interest of mine... I've grown up, in school, have a full time job, and may have a baby on the way..

With a heavy heart, I am forced to close this mod forever... Unless another mod team steps up. (MORE THAN ONE PERSON)

That being said, I'm uploading everything I have created with a single disclaimer..

All of it belongs to Microsoft.

I've tested the new teaser 1 (which I thought was just a video) and I am pleased that lot of the annoying "missing controls" stuff are gone but not all of them. Nice update overall. Great work! Looking forward to the next update.

Awesome work!

As an old fan and Beta-tester of Halogen. I can see similarities, yes! But I DON'T CARE! WHY? BECAUSE THIS MOD IS AWESOME AND THEY NEED OUR SUPPORT!

I have said it before and I will say it again, there was a number of Halo mods going for C&CZH - if the modders had got down of their high horse and worked together we could have a full game to play at this stage. Like all things they claim that 'they had artistic differences' but who doesn't in the game designing arena, you can't tell me that EVERYONE who took part in AoE2 was 100 percent happy with the game when it was being made and released!!! – point being, working together will get the job done, staying divided just leaves the community with 3+ broken or unfinished mods... I would have contributed in a combined effort and I contacted a number of the modders telling them I was interested in grouping the individual mods, needless to say I was told to 'butt out' and 'shut up'.

i fully agree with you on this comment. i sent messages to the Covenant at war and the Campaign commander modding teams for EaW and all i got were misleading messages or just plain insults in return, like they took offense to the mere suggestion of them combining mods. (campaign commander had a fully integrated command menu and ground combat system and covenant at war has a full-scale space work-up with planet-to-planet based galactic combat. if they combined their mods, they would have a TC worthy enough to rival any Halo game released by Microsoft and large enough to drown out Halo Wars completely, but still they bicker and fight. fighting over which mod is better is absolutely pointless if your working for the same goal. time to cut losses if your both missing pieces, join together and allow the open ends to mesh together. more can be done and released in the larger picture. but still they bicker and fight like a pack of wolves over the same deer carcass.

I used to work with Taxi on Evolutions, but left b/c I was never contacted for any work. Anyway, I'm working on getting my mod tools back up and running. 3dsmax 2012 isnt working anymore, half of my stuff wont run on W7 64bit.. its frustrating, plus im trying to go to college

^ And b/c of comments and messages like these, this mod will likely never be finished.
