Solitude (Working Title) is a PSP and PC game using a heavily modified Quake engine, expanding upon the story of Halo: Combat Evolved. Expect a great, brand new single player story and all of the most popular multiplayer modes from Halo: CE! Our team is working hard to bring the game to you as fast as possible so be sure to stay tuned for any new updates. More information can be found on our site at www.halosolitude.com. Note: We are NOT ripping anything from any of Halos! All our models and textures are our own, made by using the original Halo art only as reference.

Report RSS Welcome to the 20th solitude update.

Welcome to the 20th Solitude Update.

Its been along 8 months, members have come and gone, we have had our ups and downs. At the end of the day we are still kicking, and kicking harder then ever before!

VGF/ilDucci, our only animator, has been working hard getting all the guns looking right. He stopped by a few days ago and sent me these video's ;-


Please note that these are already out dated and have been changed, the melee animation for the pistol has redone, and we expect most of the melee animations to be redone.


We have a new song for you guys, made by our newest member Nutritious.

'''I'm trying to keep the feel of this one with the theme of solitude, so hopefully that's what it conveys when you hear it. '' - Nutritious



With the beta on its way we are focusing on the main components. I'd say the most important part of a halo mod would be having a decent looking spartan ! Don't worry, PsychotropicPineapples has that covered as he has been working on the spartan texture.

WIP


Note from PsychotropicPineapples :The model has been modified since then. I'll be entirely re-texturing the chest and back. The arms will also be done from scratch(what's in that picture is just a quick temporary thing I did).


A few weeks ago we showed you our sexy skyboxs ilDucci made. LW-Torrecilla dropped by to let us know that his bitc.....skybox is even sexier ! He has been working on a few different ones. So far he has finish the day and night one.

First the night one ;-

Some of the animations seem a little jerky, but they are pretty good!
Love the skyboxes, were they done in Vue?

Yeah, as I said some have already been redone. We are limited due to the fact we only have something like 25 mb ram to work on so we have to try making animations as smooth as possible with as little frames a possible.

The sky box's were made using light wave, it has a sky tracer layout.
