What have you guys done or what do you think would be some nice armor mods?

What i've done:
4 blue LEDs on the helmet
2 cooling fans in the helmet
white lights for biceps, thighs, and back
Mic with speakers in helmet (sound comes out of the black vents)
Side case for Nano
headphone in helmet to listen to nano
flat speakers in back piece for contana phrases and halo STs (playlist on nano)
control panel on arm to adjust volume, track, etc for Nano

Maybe as a side you could convert/mold a airsoft or paintball gun into a battle/assult rifle or something.

np.

as far as other supplies i've used. bike lights, LEDs from radioshack, helmet fan kit off of eBay. The back speakers came from a backpack from bestbuy that had flat speakers built in, which i removed :$ops:.

yeah, i made many trips to the army surplus store for buckles, snaps, rivots, straps, pads, belts...

I originally used official UnderArmour for underneath the armor but it was way too plain and shiny. so i then replaced it with motorcross armor with hard plastic pads and motorcycle pants.

EDIT: go here for 2 halo 3 tracks

Wow!! I love the idea of Cortana dialogue coming from the suit.. I'll bet that get's a lot of laughs.

Now I'm stuck wondering... What the's the best way to trigger them? I'm kinda' thinking an mp3 player or something, but I'd want better control on which phrase comes out.

I'd be cool as hell (but impractical) to do a full Cortana soundboard.. Aside from that.. I'd be happy with a couple of yes/no comments and some random jabs at the masterchief.

i've tried a couple things, what i found easiest is attatching an mp3 play to your wrist, arm or side.

for general standing around phrases, i made one long track consisting of cortana phrases and pauses (just used a basic sounds recorder but turn your mic off) of 3,5,10,15,60 seconds. then i had a playlist of yes responses, and a play list of no responses. just mess around with it.

my favorite is one time at an event someone asked me "what are you doing here?" with a press of a button i said "finishing this fight"

A good customization idea

Redsleigh, I found one for you...and everybody else.

The new screens of Halo 3 show that secondary weapons are now visible on the character, slung on the back for bigger weapons, or clipped to the sides of the thighs for smaller dual wielded guns.

I remeber seeing someone do that to their custom built suit...like last year, in almost the identical position on the thighs he mounted clips where he could park his SMG's when he wasn't using them.

I always thought this was a really cool idea. Glad to see that Bungie approved! Check it out here:

Scroll about halway down...unless you've never seen that tutorial before.

Great job on the Mp3 player mod....thats sweet.

I was thinking the same exact thing. Intensively strong magnets to 'holster' your BR/AR to the back or other places. It would definitely work.
