I have the same problem, I even went back and tried it again on another map. I did it on sandbox could it be because it is a mythic map?

Was editing wrong XYZs..

Note to self: next time read tut properly.

I do all my s*** on the ODST MP 'disc' and it works just fine.

I think it's cuz you guys are a bunch of newf's, or maybe it's because he didn't specify the proper offset for which XYZ values to mod. But of course stealing doesn't help either.

Ok im a .map modding noob, can someone tell me what i did wrong? the mongoose is no different..
find mode in the tags and go down to mongoose (objects\vehicles\mongoose)
click on nodes then editors, select meta editor.
change all xyz values under nodes at the top to the ones posted in the op, save after every edit.

put in halo 3 folder with xex with map checks removed + boot?

no difference to the mongoose on mine, boots fine + i can play everything as normal :/
help for a noob who wants to learn?

EDIT:
Lol im blind it says xyz centres, got it working now, thanks doom for creating this + chrisco for posting here ^_^
Mongoocycle FTW!!
