Great mod idea, wish i had that idea before you...
When you do a halo mod, you have to do a sky with a ring like in Halo.
That would be awesome!
Pipe looks good, but might be hard to drive, because you can hardly see if that is a left or right turn in yourscreenshot.

I tested you mod, and sorry i have to say that... but it is crap.
You cannot just drop some Halo screenshots over the Trackmania textures, that looks awful.
The pipe is the only thing that is ok, though it could be improved much more.

A few little hints:
Search the Halo folders for textures, or try to capture them by doing your own screenshots and edit (!) them so the scenery reminds of Halo.
That means Halo Grass, Building Textures like in Halo and so on.
Look up which texture corresponds to which objects in Trackmania.
A proper halo-sky is the thing you should begin with.
Take a screenshot from the ring, take one of the original skypanoramic.dds and blend them together.
You will need a good editor that is able to handle multiple layers, like Adobe Photoshop Elements or JASC Paintshop Pro

Here you can find some very good tutorials: http://www.tm-creative.org/tutorials/index.php

I tryed to change sounds many times, but i was never successfull.
In the tutorial in this forum somthing like that is mentioned, but it is vague if you have to drop the soundfile into the rootdirectory of your zip or a subdirectory... (/Wav? /Sounds?)

I made a halo sky just to see if it works.
It works... ehm... not very good. It's distorting a lot when moving bigger distances, and in addition to that the texture has some strange bumbs because of the low-polygon skymesh.

Anyway muisje, if you want, you can use it in your mod.

The only thing you could do is to compensate the little distortions on the rings borders by denting the texture a little bit, where necessary.
That could be done with the smudge tool in photoshop.

umm the smudge tool isnt a good idea, in photshop, use the liquify tool(shift+ctrl+x)
