Further progress in converting the DDS files: 95%.
Getting closer to striking a balance with the Covenant shields, and I think they are pretty much balanced. The focus is now on balancing the weapons. Previously, a lot of the weapon damage values were strange numbers; I have no idea what I was thinking when I set them to be honest
Took a bit to think about the music again. I'm thinking that the music can evolve as the original Halo games did - using Halo 1 music for Chapter 1, and the rest for Chapter 2 and beyond. Plus there are a number of custom tracks created by fans that I'd like to use, and I'm always open to new content.
The next step (after balance) will be to create an introductory mission or demo for release. Trying to decide what event to use.
Latest thought was what to do about the persona's and the avatars of the different pilots/ships. I've settled on a few ideas but I think that's a discussion for its own thread.
As always I'm open to suggestions, comments and opinions. As development continues I'll keep you all posted.
