The Silent Cartographer: Evolved (TSC:E) is a ground-up re-imagining of the Halo: Combat Evolved map of the same name. The map comes with an
all-new layout, a vast array of custom content, a reconstructed weapon
set emphasizing improvisation and variety in tactics, and plenty of
hidden secrets to discover. It is the final Halo CE project for many of
CMT's members - a labor of love and hate spanning almost three years of
development.

TSC:E makes use of Open Sauce, a community-made game extension that
enables many new features, from upgraded visuals to new gameplay
mechanics. Open Sauce is required to play TSC:E -- the map can't exist
without it. At the time of writing, OpenSauce's public releases are
available here: https://bitbucket.or...lease/downloads . The map requires Open Sauce version 4.0 (or newer).

Open Sauce 4.0 requires a properly-installed copy of Halo Custom
Edition, updated to 1.10. See the installation guide if you don't know
how to get these.

This map comes with a user manual providing information on difficulty
and weapon usage (among other things). Evolved treats difficulty and
many weapons differently from some other Halo games - which may be
disorienting to new players - so be sure to read the manual!

---------

Issues encountered while playing the map may be reported in this thread.

The map does have a few rare (but known) issues, which will be addressed
if possible in a maintenance release shortly after the initial launch.
If you are reporting a crash, be sure to include your crash dump (if you
have one). If the game crashes with Open Sauce installed, you can find
the crash dump on your computer in My Games\Halo
CE\OpenSauce\Reports\CrashRpt.

If you are encountering an Open Sauce-specific issue, please direct your reports to the issue tracker at https://bitbucket.or...ensauce-release .

---------

A short time after release (likely within the next month), there will be
a public release of all source files for the map that we can reasonably
organize and distribute. Until then, we urge you to use caution if you choose to extract tags from the map. Open
Sauce and the HEK+ do not get along well, the HEK+ is known for
corrupting tags in general, and there are many aspects to the Evolved
tagset that have the potential to cause serious problems with other
tagsets if you don't know exactly what you're doing. (We also encourage
you to have a heart and give the map at least a little time to shine
before you make CMt Evolved Reach_gultch). More details are provided in
readme_for_ripping.txt.
