Only thing I did not like was the colours for the ODST squad and the random pieces of armor and colour for the spartans.

That was his goal. He wanted to have different looking Spartans. Also, it makes it easier to recognize them.

ODST's aren't Spartan's..

Read what he said more carefully.

Notice how he said Color again when he was referring to the Spartans.

Oh right, yeah I skimmed through it.
I thought the ODST colour's were ok apart from the mouth piece on one of the ODST's and I agree with the Spartan armour, I thought the armour should have been different.

Every Spartan should look the same, but it's a machinima so it would be hard to tell who is who, I think that is why he did it.

Think about what your saying and apply that to Noble Team. Besides, I like his approach. Also, all those attachments are canon as they can be used for your spartan in the Campaign. Again. it would be really confusing with the ODST's too.

The Spartan's in Reach aren't cannon (Apart from everyone of them being to old for the Spartan III program, even if they weren't they would have been dead by the time of Reach anyway),neither is the ending of Reach, it doesn't match the 'Fall of Reach' book ( untill they re-wrote it )
In all the Halo novels it explains that Spartans knew who were who inspite of their exact same armour, that goes for Spartan II's and III's.

They wouldn't be customizing their armour !

They're only like that in the campaign because Bungie wanted people to play campaign and multiplayer and look the same.

Spartan III's customizing their armour isn't cannon

And I'd be able to tell the difference between the ODST's due to colour difference, not because one had a different armour piece.

Its a Machinima, Director makes the Canon, not games or already known story. Director HAS the right to alter it in any way, They Can make Hogs into Ferrari, Grunts into Children and Spartans into strippers , If a Director Sees a Spartan as a Super Soldier with a taste of personalized armor , then it is Canon whether YOU like it or not. You are entering some 1 else's Universe, Above all else, respect is your first priority.

And its 'Canon" not a 'Cannon", Artillery pieces and tank mounted Large caliber Guns have nothing to do with "da story" ---

PS: Games over write Book "canon", like it or not thats how it always is and how it always will be, A vision of a Developer of the Title surpasses the Vision of "educated" writer who wanted in on the Dough of halo Franchise.

]Sadly, Game canon overrides game canon. Believe what you want, but Reach is canon.

It doesn't mean I don't hate the breaches any less than you though.

Wouldn't it make sense though for a highly trained soldier who is specialized in a certain area should get to choose custom equipment? Also, Bungie wanted you to look the same in Multiplayer and Campaign so Reach can be about YOUR Spartan.
another thing is that I do understand that they could tell who they all were under their armor, but I doubt it would be easy for a player to recognize multiple main characters solely based on their body language.

Back on topic though, the ODST's did have a color difference though. I assume were talking about the ODST's in the beginning of the film though.

@Everyone else: I hardly know what you are arguing about, but I saw the word canon. If that is referring to my machinima you either can't read or skipped the first six seconds of the film. I said clearly in my own words:
Not part of the Halo series.
That means it is my own fictional story to create and change to my liking. I'm going to change things because I want to.

Make sure you have a dual core computer or higher though, I tried to use it on a single and the footage was all screwed up.

Are you going to add larger scale battles in your future installments?

I'd like to see warthogs, falcons, etc. in action.

Other than that, 10/10.
