Meet Your Maker - Dominion Map Submissions Thread

Absolute Dog





The "Meet Your Maker" Forge Contest Series is back and is now looking to our forge community to build in what is arguably the toughest game type to forge for, Dominion. This game type, created by Certain Affinity, has captured the interest of some of the best forgers in Halo for a reason.

List of some judging criteria for forgers


Spawn points placed in a manner that offers proper directional movement, supports 6 players per team and close enough to any vehicles dedicated to a particular team.

Respawns facing in the proper direction, in a high enough number to prevent any spawn camping and enough in cover to reduce respawn exploitation from power weapons.

Ensure any spawn points used outside of maps during forge have been removed.

Considerations of safe zones.

Proper use of soft and hard kill zones to prevent out of map game play and exploitation of structural features or environment not intended for play.

Ensure ordinance drops, weapons spawns, players, vehicles, man cannons and other items are properly placed and/or do not become trapped or stuck in features of your maps and that all areas not intended for play are blocked from players.

Double check all spawn times on weapons, vehicles and ordinance as needed.

Be sure your map make proper use of color, distinct features or orientation that allows players to quickly orient themselves and provide team mates with accurate call outs.
