I've never made or modded a Halo map before, and I have a few questions.
-- Is the HEK all I need?
-- Where do I start?
-- If I want to make my own map, do I need 3ds Max? If so, is there a free version?

The programs I have are HHT version 5, HMT version 3.5, PPFomatic version 3, Sparkedit version 3.01, Microsoft .Net Framework 4, and WinRAR. They were recommended to me by a website I don't remember.

I don't really know much about map making, but what mods are you interested in doing? If you just want to make portals and weapon spawns or modify them, you just need Spark Edit. As for actually making a map, I would have no idea. :P

One thing that I think would be a good first time mod would be adding custom weapon and vehicle tags I downloaded from halomaps.org to a standard map. Okay, I'll assume that's what I'm going to try first.

Yup. Just experiment! That's how I learned how to modify and add portals. :)

So, does anyone know how to put external tags into a normal map?
