Mo's Editing Kit (MEK)A collection of useful tools. (Most of these require Python 3.x.x)

34
Halo_TeXource:
Capable of ripping the uncompressed source textures from a directory of tags to tga files.

Quick batch conversion for your CE bitmap tags, mostly used to optimise map files that are too big. Also used sometimes to get around Tool's bad compression quality.
35
Convertor-Mode_to_Mod2:
Converts a directory of xbox models to gbxmodels.
36

Convertor-Coll_to_Mod2:
Converts a directory of model_collision_geometry tags into gbxmodel tags so they can be imported into 3dsmax.
37
Updated GBXModel importer for 3dsmax:
Improved compatibility with newer versions of 3DSMax.
38
Refinery:
The best tag ripper, the only tag ripper you should use.

And more...
39
HEK Plus (HEK+)A tool for ripping tags from map files. Handy for if you want to learn how something works, or if you see something you want. Does not work for opensauce tags. And corrupts certain pieces of tags, like weapon zoom levels, animation functions and such. Use at your own risk.

Old and deprecated, don't use.
SteelIXBdecember 2006Get Mo's editing kit and use its tool called refinery instead
40
Realtime Tag EditorAllows you to edit tags during game runtime, you can also save the tags. (Does not work for tags with raw data in them like Bitmaps)Sprinkleapril 2014MediaFire

OGG DLL FilesThese are so you can compile OGG encoded sounds for CE. These also are the proper DLLs to use to make sure that your sounds don't cause crashes. One problem with these dlls though is that the client crashes if an OGG sound was played that has been compiled with a set of bad DLLs. So keep this one strictly in your modding install.Google Drive
