  1. Community Spotlight: ForgeHub

    Posted Image


    Posted Image

    ForgeHub is the center for all things Forge-related in the Halo Community. From map design to scripting, ForgeHub has a tutorial and/or several individuals who can help at any time. ForgeHub is home to several well-known Forgers and community members including WARHOLIC, Chronmeister, Commander Colson, and xdemption just to name some. Above you can see an image of their homepage which is updated frequently with news and tutorials (look at that awesome screenshot they got there!). Speaking of front page articles, this one is one of my favorite recurring articles on the site:

    "...Forge-Cast is an article idea that i came up with that comes out every Monday. It gives a little recap of the previous week but mainly lists and talks about upcoming lobbies and article that are happening through out the week. This way people who visit the site can click on the front page article and be taken to a list of lobbies and what time they start, as well as a link to the lobby's thread.
    Getting a lobby into the Forge-Cast is easy, all you need is to be a member of the site, post in the forums that you are starting a lobby, and list the times and other details about the lobby. I then see the lobby and put it into the article." - Sir Iron Wolf.

    The Forge-Cast is also the number 1 source of our Community Calendar's content and we have Sir Iron Wolf to thank for that.

    The Forums page hosts the Shoutbox which stays active at almost all hours of the day. ForgeHub doesn't have a lot of different forums as you can see so that keeps things easy and less cluttered. Being a Forge-based community, they don't need many other forums. This tab is also the place to find the most recent threads and see who's online.

    Posted Image

    The Map Database is separate from the Maps tab and is found in the forums. It's a catalog of different maps and discussions from each Halo game era. This keeps their Maps page and forums clean and up to date. Thousands of threads kept for accessing old files and proof of ForgeHub's transcendence through the different ages of Halo.

    Posted Image

    The Map library on ForgeHub is rivaled by none even today. Above are the 2000+ maps submitted to ForgeHub in only Halo 5: Guardians. Adding a map starts with a click of a button but then requires a description, player count, supported gametypes, images, and more. Not actually a difficult process. At the top you'll spot featured maps which include Sikamikanico's Fever Pitch, SaltyKoala's Port 66, and WyvernZu's Infinity Siege. You can't go wrong looking for a map on ForgeHub. And if you're a Forger yourself, then this is also a great place to get your map tested.

    Posted Image

    Lastly, here's a view of the current staff on ForgeHub minus a couple (sorry AlexVan and Doju). This is also not counting cartographers and 343 employees that frequent the site like WARHOLIC, AnonFriction, NOKYARD, and Godly Perfection.


    So whether it's a place to show off your latest project, get it tested, or even get ideas or inspiration for future projects, I'd say ForgeHub is your destination. And then Twam said 'let all the Halo niche sites work together in piece and reunite the Halo Community.' Don't forget to follow ForgeHub on Twitterfor updates like their interview with the Tom French and Nahil Sharkasi of 343 Industries. While you're at it, read me and ForgeHub admin Sir Iron Wolf's latest interview. And finally look to their YouTubefor map features and tutorials. The end.

  2. Halo 2: Anniversary Forge

    Halo 2: Anniversary Forge


    As part of IGN first, 343i shows us how Forge will work in Halo 2 on their new 'Forge World'.

    We will start off with a huge blank canvas, everything you see around you is part of the skybox so you can do everything you want to do. Place huge slabs of terrain to create an island to work on, go place some trees and rocks to make it look more natural. Once you go in to player mode everything will connect with eachother almost seamlessly.

    As an example we get to see an entire map as large a Coagulation forged by one of the dev's to show us what we all can do when we get out hands on.
    You'll be able to place interactive elements on the map. Like the EMP which is also featured in Coagulation, switches like we saw in Zenith and interactive doors activated by consoles like we saw in Stonetown. And yes the "Blue screen of death" appears on them when activated like in the original Zanzibar console. :D

    But it doesn't stop there!
    Using the consoles you can also spawn in set items in Player mode. From as small as a bridge to entire race tracks. Get creative! ;)

    What's also worth pointing out is that we get a glimpse of Beaver Creek that the dev's forged in.
    Didn't your favourite map get remade? You can now Forge it yourself!

    Get a look at it for yourself here:

    Forging The Future

    The future of Machinima has arrived! Here is a huge project started by our Art Department's Gryffin in association with THFE and ourselves. He's got a lot of members voice acting for him and we're backing this Machinima 100%. It's about 5 Spartans that get sent to Earth to find Monitors that landed there after Requiem exploded. There is lots of work being put into this project by many members of the site and we should see S1E1 here at some point!

    Sand/Snow in Halo 4 Forge


    Posted Image


    Talented Forger RegrettedKarma came across some awesome content by the OnlineKnights that shows you how you can make it look like there's snow of sand on your map in Halo 4's Forge. Very interesting stuff and just another example of how limitless Halo 4's Forge is. Check out his post and the video by the OnlineKnights by clicking the image. Isn't that a nice image of Forged snow?

    Nuclear Bombs in Halo 4

    Posted Image

    Here's a really unique idea for a map. It's based on a timer and after that timer is up a big flash appears on screen and everyone dies.. Which explains the name. It's really fun and has potential for a lot of mini games. This map was made by the member JooJoona and is better explained by him in his map submission thread.

  7. Forge World Coming To Halo 4?

    Could It Be Possible That We Are

    Getting A Forge World For Halo 4?


    Halo4Follower got tipped to go back and look at the images from the Valentines Day

    Waypoint Bulletin because there were some questionable images.


    He came out with a video analyzing these images so take a look below.

    Video By: Halo4Follower


    What do you think about these images?


    In my personal opinion I think it could be possible that they would

    give us a forge world spin off of some sort.


    They have been very responsive to the community about a lot of other very specific aspects.


    In particular this image


    Posted Image


    Picture By: Halo Waypoint


    This looks like Montana and Alaska from forge world but if you look closely

    it looks redefined in a Halo 4 sort of way.


    And in reach new forge environment became available with some DLC as well.


    Could this be 343 hinting at a new forge world in the upcoming DLC?

    Far Cry is not a game that I've ever gotten into,

    but this review suddenly makes me want to.


    Our very own, The Halo Forge Epidemic, has done a stunning review

    for this up and coming game.

    They did the review because they are technically a "gaming" channel so they

    fall under all gaming categories.

    But they also fit well with this game because of it's stunning

  10. Remade Map confirmed to be returning in halo 4

    Posted Image

    Information From Frank's Twitter

    Frank O'Connor has tweeted confirming that a map remake will be in Halo 4. He has not confirmed which map it is yet but gives a very brief description.

    Here is what he said:


    "Halo 4 only includes one map remake. I know what it is, it is good. It will cause the least drama of any new thing. It is NOT Small."

    I'm thinking maybe its Blood Gulch but who knows, leave a comment on what map you want it to be.
