It would be tremendously helpful and will probably be added in an update. Hope you all enjoy this map as much as I did! Map History​ When a friend of mine came to me and said “I have a cool idea for a halo wars game”, I was instantly down for it. This was originally going to be a Halo Wars 2 minigame (may be made in the later updates known as Blitz). I started making a large terrain set that could be big enough to simulate a Halo Wars match (which is very large). As we got into working out the game aspects, we soon realized that a game like this probably wouldn’t work well and would be a little too ambitious, so we decided to scrap the idea. By then I had already built a large amount of the map and didn’t want to see it wasted. I said I would try to make something else out of it on my own, and that I did. I didn’t want this to be just another Big Team map so I thought of a few gamemodes to make specifically for this map. Halo 4 was my first Halo game I played, so I decided to bring back Heavies and Extraction. I made the current map smaller, which gave me more budget room to add aesthetics and features. The map was very budget tight, but when it was done, it looked fantastic. I set up the other gamemodes, as well as made 2 weapon and vehicle sets (one for flag and ball gametypes, one for heavy gametypes), but making Extraction was a challenge. I first only made 3 extract sites and had 2 active at a time. I knew I would have tons of bugs and problems, so I started playtesting. I hosted 1 or 2 playtesting sessions a week. I had tons of scripting bugs to fix, as well as some map issues like not enough cover, spawn killing, map layout, and other things like that. I found Extraction to get rather stale, so I decided to make it more like the original, having 5 sites rather than 3 and making them change from 2 to 1 being active at a time. After I fixed that, I released the map, which is what your reading now. Gameplay Design​ Each team has a base they first spawn in which looks like the base in blitz (in heavies, the base has a shield that keeps the other team from passing through). In each of these home bases is a warthog, rockethog, gungoose, and mantis (in heavies, the gungoose is replaced with a scorpion and a wasp). The map is made around 3 hills (which are supposed to represent the 3 control points in blitz games). Each team has a hill close to the spawn base, and one hill to the side of the map in the middle. This center hill is important for teams to control, as it has a large height advantage to overlook the rest of the map. Around these hills are remnants of a crashed UNSC Heavy Frigate, which creates new smaller areas for players to engage in. There are many weapons throughout the map, and power weapons consist of a railgun, binary rifle, and spnkr rocket launcher. In heavies, there are Spartan lasers, incineration cannons, hunter arms, and spnkr Ems.​ For gameplay, I wanted the player to feel like how a Spartan II should in Halo Wars and I wanted the map to be a big battlefield that makes the player feel small, but still significant. When I first made the map, It was very big, even a little too big for what I later intended. So I shrunk the map, added more cover, and more wreckage for the player to interact with. Players can’t run around from corner to corner of the map quickly which makes it more important for you to strategies where you want to go and how you want to engage before you run into battle. This works very well when working as a team, deciding together when to make pushes for power positions, defending tactics, and flanking routes, making it feel similar to a Halo Wars match. The vehicles on the map are very important to control as well, as some of them can turn the tide of battle. The vehicles are balanced with a rock terrain system on the ground. Spartans have no trouble climbing over the rock, small vehicles like warthogs can go through it if they have a skilled driver, and large vehicles like scorpions have a tough time going over and sometimes have to find another path. This keeps vehicles from being too overpowered on the map, which they would be on battlefields like this otherwise Aesthetic Design​ For the aesthetic design of the map, obviously I wanted a good Halo Wars 2 theme since the game was about to come out when I started the map. I wanted to make a nice natural looking environment full of rock, trees, and I made that to start. Then I “crash landed” the Heavy Frigate ship prefab onto the map and warped the terrain accordingly, which included making sinkholes in the ground where ship parts sit, knocking down trees, and lighting things on fire. Then I included some Banished aesthetics, like a banished locus and banished banshees created by Oni777777 (might have miscounted the sevens). I set the banished banshees on joint barrels to make them fly in a circle around they sky, but this caused a lot of framerate drops and performance issues, so they had to be removed. I also considered leaving them static in the sky, but figured it would break the immersion in the map, which was top of my priority list. I also made halo wars 2 blitz bases and hills on the map, using the hills as stronghold points in the strongholds gamemode. The map is set in the barrens map and uses the barrens rock with the alpine terrain, which I thought looks most like Halo Wars 2. The skybox is a crimson colour which fits with the battlefield style of the map. I also added a light smoky fog to the map which is thick enough to make seeing at a long distance a little harder but thin enough to see through well in most areas. Unique Map Features​ Random Weapon Generator On each hill is a random weapon generator plate. The plate spawns 2 weapons from a pool of 8 possibilities every 20 seconds. The weapons despawn every 20 seconds if untouched, so there will never be more than 2 weapons to choose from at a time. On hills Alpha and Charley (red and blue sides), the weapon pool consists of 8 DMRs each with a different attachment or scope. On hill Bravo, the pool is made of SMGs. Weapon/Vehicle sets The main gamemode for this map will of course be heavies, but I wanted a second weapon and vehicle set for other gamemodes. I found that the heavies weapon and vehicle set was a little too much for flag and ball gamemodes, as it made players less focused on the objectives and more on killing enemies. This is done by making 2 vehicles phased into each other and set the labels to different gamemodes. Then they are scripted to on match start: set physics normal. These special features along with other map features will be available to download as a prefab after release in a later update
  2. Sorry I havent checked this in a while. I made this a long time ago before infection came out and I just recently discovered this site. I will probably make a slender 2 because scripting and forge is a lot better now. Map Link Gamemode let me know if something doesnt work
  3. I wish I could but as far as I know, forge doesnt allow music from other games except halo 5 music and sound effects.
  4. "Race your friends in a hog, watch out for whomps, and get nostalgic" A Mario Kart themed race track by: ARC GuiltySpark Gamertag: ARC GuiltySpark Player count 1-16 Map Link: Click! Gamemode (Link Issues, get from my files) Halo Kart ​Map Building Process I first got the idea for making this map when I randomly decided to play on my old wii. I took photos of this map for reference and then built all the track pieces I would need first. Once I had a strait, corner, jump, and every other little piece made, I simply snapped together all the pieces to make the track. I had major budget issues making the map from making a huge lava floor and storm ceiling out of chroma blocks and lights, so I had to cut back on some aesthetics to have enough objects for a functioning gametype. The scripting of the whomps wasnt working well so I had to make the whomp structure more simplified as well. Now The map flows 99% smoothly with few scripting glitches. Paired with the "Halo Kart" gametype, it is a really fun custom to play! Halo Kart Gametype Settings -Starting Vehicles are set to rally hogs, but you can change them to mongooses and ghosts as well -Each lap is 10 points. Default settings are set to 3 laps (30 points) but you can set however many you want -Players are not allowed out of your vehicle, but you can set the game to allow players to spawn in passenger seats If you would like to see how I built the map, or how to build a race track on your own, check out my Youtube channel for my Halo 5 Forge Guide video coming out soon Guilty Spark's Youtube Channel Thanks so much, enjoy the map
  5. Thanks so much! I will probably make more games like this one. I finished this a while ago and just found out about this website so I am submitting my best.
  6. Gamertag: ARC GuiltySpark Player Count: 2-9 (1 slender, 8 players) Download Link: Click! Map Trailer: Click! THIS IS NOT AN INFECTION MAP, THIS IS A WORKING SLENDERMAN GAME Slender: Oakside Park is a custom game I have been working on for a long time but is finally finished. It is based on the game Slender: The Arrival and is a really fun game for as little as 2 players to 9 players. Please give this map a download, I would really appreciate it! RULES Everyone must go to Red team and 1 person on blue team to control Slenderman OBJECTIVE Red Team must work together to find 8 pages hidden throughout the map. They are switches that need to be activated in order for them to win. Once all are activated, an alarm will sound and everyone must run to the beach to go to the escape van through the gate and win Blue Team (Slenderman) wins by either keeping Red team from finding all 8 pages before the time limit expires or kill them all. He is controlled from a panel up in the sky similar to “reaper”. There is a light marker in the sky that tells the controller where Slenderman is on the ground. The map is very dark making it hard for players to find there way around. Slenderman makes a buzzing sound if you are near him. His face is glowing from the front so you can still see him in the black of night. Make sure to check out my gamenight video and map trailer on my Youtube channel. Huge thanks to CREATIVE FORCE for helping me with this great custom.

  8. "Many dangers lie within these toxic sewers like poisonous gases, corrosive acid, and radiation. Sounds like a great place to play grifball!" A Standard-Size Grifball Map by: ARC GuiltySpark​ Gamertag: ARC GuiltySpark Player Count: 8 Download Link: Click! Layout Design The layout of this grifball map has everything standard size to matchmaking maps for the best play experience. The size of the court is 260W x 310L (not including the initial spawn area and the side pipes). At the beginning players run in from a pipe tunnel outside the map which is unplayable after the intro. There are also stacks of two pipes on each side of the map that players can jump on and run along. Aesthetic Design The theme for this map was an industrial underground sewers that holds acid or toxic waste. The map uses a 3 tier platform style which is a hard platform, pipes in between each platform, and cables in between each pipe. There is one big pipe running down the middle of the court with acid underneath. There are two big platforms beside the pipe and another set of platforms with more acid and pipes underneath. Two tunnels are at each end of the map where players initially spawn and run in from. In the middle of the map there is another big tunnel that leads up to the surface with light shining through it and on to the court. another series of pipes run along the ceiling. The rest of the map is made of a decaying yellow brick. On one side there is a whole in the wall with acid dripping down the side. The map has lots of cool sounds and lighting effects to immerse you in the environment. There are also special details added around the map like warning decals on the floor and walls as well as barrels and dead bodies floating in the acid beneath.
  9. "The ancient Forerunners have taken over these crumbling sand ruins to harvest the powerful artifacts within" A Core 2v2-4v4 Arena Map by: ARC GuiltySpark Gamertag: ARC GuiltySpark Player Count: 4-8 players Download Link: Click! ​ Layout Design Excavation is a Smaller 2v2-4v4 Core Arena map for all gamemodes like Slayer, CTF, Strongholds, and Assault. It has two very distinctive sides or "bases", both tackling different aesthetic themes. Throughout every game players will try to hold these two bases as well as other power positions like the Bridge and the Stage. Playing in teams calls for lots of strategy and teamwork to control power positions while playing Free For All will put your skills to the test to control these areas solo. With open and closed areas as well as long and short sightlines each game feels different than the last. Whether you're playing competitive, casual, or somewhere in between, Excavation is a blast! Aesthetic Design The aesthetics are where this map truly shines. First lets look at Blue Team's side. This part of the map consists of natural rock and "jungle like" foliage with Forerunner pieces built above and within the environment. Lots of blue lighting, effects, sounds, and metal textures absorbs you into the scenery. Red Team's side fades from bright colours into a dusty wasteland. The sandstone temples built on top the sand dunes have started to crumble and decay under the work of the Prometheans, resulting in piles of rubble encased in dust. Looking past the rock walls, players can view even more of this terrain in the background scenery. These two amazing environments blend together nicely in the middle to make this a stunning arena map. Weapon Design The Weapon Layouts have been altered for different gamemodes to provide the best experience on each one. Slayer, CTF, FFA Railgun - bottom mid Binary Rifle - stage Strongholds, Assault Railgun - stage Overshield - bridge wing -Battle Rifle -H2 Battle Rifle -Closed Fist (Boltshot) -DMR -Frag Grenades x2 -Gunfighter Magnum -Light Rifle -Needler -Plasma Grenades x2 -SMG -Splinter Grenades x2 -Suppressor If you would like to see how I built this map or how to build a core map yourself, check out my Youtube Channel "Guilty Spark" with the video coming out soon "Halo 5 Forge Guide | Core Maps". https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzL5yQ13bppr1ksJ0Xq1CHA
