  1. As most of you may know, Yoshi and I have been making forge maps for the Community, and hosting them on my file share. The first attempt we tried was Scrimmage. Which was actually finished by SikSlik, but the concept was by myself. Featuring 1v1 style combat, that could fit in a 2v2 respectfully. Next up was Salient, a concept by me and created by me. Featuring a 2v2 style combat map, that could fit a 4v4 respectfully. As you can see, those had some good pull through. Not the best, but not the worst. What Yoshi and I are trying to do is create more concepts, and apply them into forge. To create some competitive style maps for everyone to play on and enjoy. Well first up on our list, we have a map that will be named: Terrace The map is basic style combat, idea was based off of a Halo: Reach map. A name I can't think of, but was a community forged map that was premiered in Team Slayer. Next up we have a map called: Viaduct. The map design is simple, and it's pretty colorful and visible. While at the same time proving protection and symmetrical combat. Next up we have a map called: Polyandrium. Another symmetrical map concept, that provides plenty of fire, and small vehicle combat. This will be one of the larger scale maps. 12-16 player size, to be exact. This one will take longer, but hopefully more enjoyable to play. Next up after that we have: Foyer. I know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes. We are making another map that is not symmetrical. Terrace isn't the only one. That's because we want to provide maps with mysteries wherever they go, as well give off a mysterious aura. We like the concept of this map for the open areas, as well as the amount of coverage. Allowing players to travel at their own risk, kind of like a Halo 3 Citadel feeling when you're out in the open. Last but not least, we will attempt to remake the H:CE famous map: Chiron Tl-34. This one will be easier to attempt and such, but we're not putting this as a priority map. This is more of a lax, sit down and have fun map. Although settings are different, we are hoping we can give the full feeling of the original map. Minus the flamethrower, of course. We hope you all look forward to our future creations! You are welcome to help if you wish! However, we do not tolerate players who are intentionally destructing the map. You will be kicked from the lobby if such a thing happens.
  2. This is going to be a small post but I'm here to say I have not forged a map in halo 5 yet and was never good at forge. But Im going to start making a forge map that I plan to work with infection as the main game mode for it and then swat and breakout. This will look like a home depot building so a loy of racks and shelves with some small vehicles. My plan is you can climb on top of some of the shelves and such. Anyways. Anyone is welcome to join me in this I plan to start tonight after work just add my gamertag: HOUOUIN KYOUMA7
  3. Map: Mire (subject to change) Current Game modes: Slayer So I am totally new to forging. I feel that my aesthetic skills are good and my map design is decent. My main problem is i do not know how to set game modes up. My spawning for slayer works but I would love to have a seasoned forger help. Mire is a small to medium sized map set in a swampy, toxic, planet. Its aesthetic is based off of old Forerunner technology. It has an interesting asymmetrical design that creates an interesting movement fro both teams. Power Weapons: Binary Rifle, Shotgun Power-Ups: None as of now but there is place for one Weapons: Battle Rifle x2, Light Rifle x1, Carbine x1, SMG x2, Plasma Repeater x1, Brute Plasma Rifle x1, Plasma Pistol x1, Suppressor x1, Frag G x6, Plasma G x2, Splinter G x2 Would love to have feedback. My gt is Salopp Joel. Just shoot me a friend request and maybe a message that you read this page. Thanks!
  4. 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.

  6. "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.
  7. "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
  8. It's not that it's a bad forge mode, it's the best in the series. It's just that, for me at least, the content updates make building a map at the moment pointless. I will build a map, content update comes out with features and objects I wanted for that map, I will need to return to that map and spend time editing it or rebuilding it just to put in the new features. I just don't bother with halo 5's forge because I Know a new update will come out and it will make my old maps pointless and redundant unless updated. A good example of this is the scenery textures, If I built a map before the textures came out i will need to revisit it and select every bit of scenery and adjust it's texture. I'll probably go back to forge once the content updates stop coming.
  9. Hey there Zandrill! So this is my attempt at submitting a map for you to check out. I'm used to Forgehub, so this is a little out of the norm for me. Hopefully I'm doing this right Map Name: Gatelord Author: Ascend Hyperion Player Count: 2-8 Players Gametypes Supported: Team Slayer, 6 Man FFA, Multi-Team, Strongholds, CTF, Oddball *Team Slayer is the default for the map Download Link: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/map-variants?lastModifiedFilter=Everything&sortOrder=BookmarkCount&page=1&gamertag=Ascend%20Hyperion#ugc_halo-5-guardians_xbox-one_mapvariant_Ascend%20Hyperion_f4a093eb-cfd6-41fe-b8d8-c692ab11b17b Description: "This battle has happened, it is happening and it will happen." Gatelord is a versatile core map inspired by the Vex architecture from Destiny. Set deep within the Spire Ruins on Venus, players will navigate the time weathered machines of the Vex in an all out battle for domination. Built to blend fast paced vertical play with the rigid decaying structures of the Vex, players can flow freely through the diverse paths on the map, slide and clamber about and even use the timegates to teleport from low and high points on the map. I hope you enjoy it!
  10. 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. 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. 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. 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 Twitter for 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 YouTube for map features and tutorials. The end. This post has been promoted to an article

  12. so September 8 (usa) Halo 5 forge will be arriving on Pc. Here is a link from Microsoft http://news.xbox.com/2016/05/19/forging-ahead-the-halo-forge-experience-comes-to-windows-10-pc/ I am very excited to see this happening as it could be a gateway to more halo things on pc.
  13. Hey all, I am creating this post because my friend and I do a weekly show called Forgetastic Fridays where we pick user created maps, we then run around the maps and showcase them. We are looking for anyone that would like to submit their Forge maps, they can be any type of map (4v4, 8v8, Slayer, Infection, Puzzle, etc). And we would love to be able to have the user in the show with us explaining why they did this etc. If you would like to submit your map just leave your GT, and the name of the map. Or you can send me a message on XBL, my GT is Sgt Gnomes, and just let me know the name of the map you would like to submit. I hope to hear from you! Heres an example of what we do:
  14. Hey guys, long time. I'm working on a project for the Hub of the Dead Infection-Map contest over at Forge Hub! So, I have most of it done. Now I'm just confused over one little detail. That has to do with the way the sky looks. Now, I'm going to give you guys two images that don't have too much stuff from the entire map, and are from an older version, but that's okay, because technically I haven't "revealed" it to any forum yet. I'm going to have descriptions for each one, and so that'll tell you whatever you can't gather from the pictures (which will probably be a lot of stuff). So I want you guys to either vote for option 1, or option 2 as a lighting setup. ​Don't forget, this is an infection map. ​OPTION 1: This is a daylight option. It's bright, has lots of sunlight, a sandy atmosphere, slightly cloudy but has bluish sky. Performance and light-baking is slightly better on this setup. It looks similar to WyvernZu's lighting on her Sandtrap remake. OPTION 2: This option is not a night option by any stretch of the imagination, as the huge sun on parallax shines through everything. But it is noticeably darker, has a slightly thicker sand effect and is also just a more effed up day time. One thing to note is that performance with the light-baking is worse than Option 1, and some pieces look a tiny bit glitchy (nothing that you can notice unless you look really carefully). So that's that! Basically, I'm not sure of a scary vibe needs a darker lighting necessarily. I've been told that my map feels like it was once lived in, and something happened where people died/can't be there anymore, and this was with Option 1 on. So, that's the thing. It's an infection map, so a sketchiness is favorable. But, if it can be achieved without having to be physically darker, it's fine. Anyway, thanks and vote if you read this! NOTE: The reason I said urgent was because there's only around a week left.
  15. Download link below! Mombasa streets will finally be available today. This new map has been completely rebuilt from scratch on a brand new forge canvas, instead of an out-of-map canvas. This version does not fully replicate any one distinct location from the game, this is just meant to show off remade assets and known elements that are most recognizable from the original gameplay. This map was rushed in an effort to replace the original that was never released due to broken mechanics. However I plan on making more than one version and expanding on remakes from the city as time goes on. Hope you guys enjoy! https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/map-variants?lastModifiedFilter=Everything&sortOrder=BookmarkCount&page=1&gamertag=BaconMedia#ugc_halo-5-guardians_xbox-one_mapvariant_BaconMedia_24f48df2-97bb-410b-8eca-30b794afcfe3 Add BaconMedia on Xbox Live to bookmark the map directly.
  16. Deep under the city of New Mombasa is an entire hive of super computers controlled by th city's superintendent AI "Virgil". This map recreates a portion of the computer hive and several well known locations from the campaign mission in Halo 3: ODST Download link: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/map-variants?lastModifiedFilter=Everything&sortOrder=BookmarkCount&page=1&gamertag=BaconMedia#ugc_halo-5-guardians_xbox-one_mapvariant_BaconMedia_6e2a5ce8-d86c-490a-b988-32cd02d24f43
  17. Challenge your friends to a 1v1 Beer Pong Match. In this match up, we have 10 super sized party cups per side, and your unique throwing skills. Here is my first Halo minigame, Beer Pong. When I heard the Firefight update had party cups in forge, I set my mind to creating this map. Although it's a simple idea, the execution was not as easy as it first sounded. First off I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by to check out my map, and give it a bookmark, or even a shout. This took loads of time actually, and I'm satisfied with how it turned out. The way Halo 5 Beer Pong works is like normal Beer Pong, the only twist is that you get to take your partners cups away when you score on one of them. You use a color-coded identification system to know which cups your taking away. This is the only way I found the game mode would work. And yes, I tried to script removable goal pads and cups. -Yoink- it, it's fun to take away your friends cups. Don't forget to download my 'Beer Pong' custom Game Mode as well or you're going to have a bad time. Thanks for reading and see ya guys next time. To 343: I put something for adults in your Rated T game, you mad barvos? Play Ball. -AFTM Reclaimer Follow me on Twitter @ForgeAndReclaim for my Forging Updates!
  18. Hi folks! I wanted to pop open the lid on this discussion, as there seems to be little or confusing discussion around this topic. I personally do NOT currently know how to create deep shadows or very dark spaces on maps. I have a map concept that is being built on the Alpine base map. It requires me to create areas that have no light except for a candle or flashlight here and there. Not the whole map, mind you, because much of the action can also happen outside. So I put it to you, the Forging Community, to help myself, and others, come up with some creative solutions! Have at it!
  19. 343 community, Allow me to introduce my warthog race map, "Yellow Brick Rolled". I've been playing Halo since it was created and as long, I have been most intrigued by two components: 1) the gauntlet-style, warthog sprints found in the campaign levels (dat Final Escape jump doe), and 2) challenging the gametype/map boundaries set by the creators. While I've had my stints (LONG, GPA-killing stints all throughout High School, College, and Grad School!) with getting my forward lean on for the sake of ranking up and building my K/D (mostly when in concert with lifelong brethren Its PJ Biaaaaaa and OXFire), by virtue of the fact that my household didn't have internet back when H2 dropped, I never achieved elite, multiplayer status and as a result, resigned myself instead to hack jumps, campaign nuggets, besting Legendary AI solo, and a social life ... and chirping kids. I've never been MLG worthy, but I'm a grinder.... and over the course of myriad gamertag iterations (slash adolescence), an a-hole, who fit right in with online FPS gaming. Fast-forward to present, (the try-easier stage of life) and now I have an avenue through which I can finally contribute to the community... this is my first creation and hopefully it's worthwhile. I have bulleted the gist topics beneath for brevity. The truth is, words can't do it justice, so I urge you all to try it out (preferably with a sizable fire team) and enjoy! 1. Quick Stats Author Gamertag: sum1 moar 1337 Warthog race map 8 color-coded, laned spawns with 1 scout warthog per lane 2-16 Players; capability of single player per team, or "double dash" style with a side seat co-pilot grenade tosser. Must self-choose team color The intention is for people to stay within their hogs unless flipped (preparing for a formal race gametype to be released by 343); race cannot be completed solely on-foot, without utilizing grenade jumps Big-Team Stronghold game-type to afford "Finish Line" with instant capture attributes TO BE PLAYED WITH YBR: Race da 5'9" gametype; mode attributes augmented to allow for minimal damage infliction and invulnerability to all but kill balls/suicide, with maximal force effects (ground pounds, frag blast radius, melee strength, etc.) for sake of heinous explosion physics. Also, unlimited lives per round, 2 rounds to win game, 6 frag nades at start and H1 pistol (of course) Forge details: 970 objects; 9 groups; 304 scripts; 37% FX; 82% lightmap; 52% collision; 94% physics 2. Summary YBR is intended as a 2-16 player race map, with a clear flow and contained funnel, and many obstacle-rich sections throughout, which collectively serve as the main element of randomness. This map is laden with equalizers, to ensure all remain engaged in the race, despite their lineup at any given time. The inner track is composed solely of "material" objects and the outer composed almost entirely of "natural" objects; I did this for juxtaposition and variety. Scripting is quintessential to this map, as movement makes it more challenging to "master" any given part, while staying ahead of the pack. Thanks to Forge's uniquely quirky nature, some objects even appear/disappear depending on the specific round, or time within a round, or for no reason at all... while this is unintentional, ironically it also contributes to the randomness, which is actually beneficial. Every bit of this map provides choice to the driver, and most of these choices afford decent time-saving/loltastic rewards (grav launchers, shortcuts, teleports, anti-grav fields), BUT the more rewarding, the more consequence-laden they are in case of failure (physical rejection by rotating objects, huge time-sinks for failed attempts, death by fire/kill ball, etc.). Even running through this (see YouTube vids) by myself, having created the map and knowing all of the minutia, this thing can kick my a$$ and humble/frustrate me during any given round, despite my best driving... which is exactly why I love it. From the hours of alpha-testing this beast with others, hilarity ensued. Soon, urgent call outs and moments of choking laughter became regular occurrences, along with ever-evolving location names. Personal favorites include: Whiskey Stones; Cheese Wedges; Ball Pit; Toblerones; Kit-Kats; Zebra Cakes; Rib Cage; The Salad Tosser; Guess Who?; Graveyard; Herp Rock; Petey's Oak; Root Sack Garden; Old Dusties; The Plumes; The Gauntlet; and Flolshy. This is exactly why I created this map, and I'm excited to see if it takes off. 3. Future Plans Depending on when/how 343 rolls out its race gametype, I don't yet know how I'll reallocate object budget... whether I'll do away with the constructed boundaries and opt for checkpoints to funnel people, or not. Also, I wonder how this map would play with rally hogs and what that would mean for jump distances and other things currently optimized for the slower speed. Also, you don't need nades to complete the map, BUT I like that aspect, as well as the ability to seat switch, because these allow you to toss nades at the competition, for sake of defense or for just f'king with their race... I hope these aspects are retained in the formal race gametype launch, as they promote curveballs. Of course, add'l edits will be made as player feedback comes in from sessioning YBR, so I'm hoping to garner some unexpected ideas as well. Thank you all for regarding and in advance for trying out Yellow Brick Rolled. Enjoy!

  20. My Gamertag: Not Donovan 10-12 players Little Dead Space 2 inspiration... I wanted to play with gravity on this map. There are 3 areas with either low/zero gravity. (Might remove one, I'll get to that shortly). There is a small gravity lift that uses gravity volumes and there is low gravity in the half destroyed satellite room. Weapons - 1 DMR - 0 spare 1 SAW - 0 spare 1 Magnum - 0 spare 1 SMG - 0 spare 2 Shotguns - 0 spare 1 Boltshot - 1 spare 1 Scattershot - 0 spare 1 of each grenade Some things may change depending on feedback.

  21. Hey everyone, First post here, thought I'd share one of my maps. It hasn't been tested completely yet. It's set up for a 4v4 but can accommodate 8v8.
  22. Below is a summary of requests for the Halo 5 Forge by the 343i Forums community. I took the time to gather unique ideas from two separate discussion threads: This one by Urban Bobcat, and this one by Squally DaBeans, with a few addional suggestions I have of my own. I wanted to pool together the various Forge suggestions by the community for Halo 5 as a preparation for a new thread I plan to compose stating the argument for greatly expanding the Forge capabilities and the community role in aiding with the design of DLC, and how this can work to both the benefit of 343, the Forging community, and a way to assist in reviving Halo to it's rightful place at the top of FPS multiplayer games. Once I start this thread I will update this one with a link to that discussion. Read through the summary and add any additional suggestions you may have below if there is something missing, or you are inspired by what you read and have some new thoughts or expanded ideas from the list. I will eventually create a new thread with the expanded list. Here is a summary of what several 343i community members have requested to be part of the next Forge: List of useful suggestions for updated forge: What We Need Most: *Precision editing and zoom: We had this in Reach. Apparently we don't in Halo 4 because of a bug that has not been fixed. We want it back in Halo 5 and into infinity (no pun intended). Sure, you can sort-of precision edit objects horizontally from above/below while holding objects, but there is no way to precision edit with height. Additionally, precision editing should also be possible when editing coordinates. *Inversion: It would be nice if all asymmetrical objects had mirrored cousins. We have asked for this since forever, but having the ability to invert/mirror asymmetrical objects such as ramped platforms/buildings and other non-symmetrical objects would make symmetrical map-building, well, more symmetrical. If for anything than for its aesthetic appeal to advanced Forgers. *Scale Object: Ability to expand dimensions of certain objects, such as blocks, natural objects, decorative, etc. This would be amazing, for obvious reasons, not the least of which means we would be able to have a larger selection of blocks/natural/inclines, but the ability to increase/decrease the dimensions, symmetrically or asymmetrically. Just think how many endless possibilities Forge would offer if we could take a standard medium rock and expand it to be as big as the rocks at the base of the Islands. There would need to be a limit to how much you could scale, and you would have to keep frame rate in mind. I would just like struts to be smaller sometimes, ya know? *Batch Select: This includes: 1.Batch Grab, 2.Batch Duplicate, 3.Batch Editing (Basic and Advanced Settings), 4.Batch Lock/Unlock, 5.Batch Invert and Batch-Scale. (Did I miss anything? Let me know) 1.Batch-Grab: This would give the Forger the ability to “group” or interlock two or more forge objects; objects can be Batch Grabbed whether or not they are merged or even touching. Batch-grabbed objects could be moved/rotated, duplicated, lock/unlocked as is standard now in H4, batch-edited in object settings (i.e. team color, phased/fixed/normal, etc) or likewise in Advanced settings. Batch-grab would be an essential function, esp when building structures or object configurations that will be duplicated in other parts of the map. The forger would be allowed to add or drop objects/spawning from batched items. 2.Batch-Duplicate: Besides being able to move a group of batched objects simultaneously, Batched objects could also be duplicated as a group as well. This is basically the same as the duplicate tool in Halo 4, but applied to a group of objects linked by Batch-Grab. 3.Batch-Editing: As it says, Batched objects could be edited individually in basic and advanced settings, or as a group. With objective Gametypes specific objects/spawning would be have advanced settings set prior to being Batch-grabbed. 4.Batch-Lock/Unlock: Batched objects/spawning could be locked/unlocked as a group, as is now standard with H4 with individual objects/spawning. Individual objects must be released from Batch-Grab in order to be individually unlocked/moved. 5.Batch-Invert: Basically, able to invert or mirror batched items horizontally or vertically as a group. We still don't have the ability to invert individual objects such as asymmetrical buildings/platforms, etc. (see Inversion Function above Batch-Editing Function for more details). 6.Batch-Scale: Batched objects can be scaled as a group. This would give a unique opportunity for creating some hybrid symmetry between objects (hybrid symmetry is when you position two or more objects so that they align as if on the same plane, but you can only really notice this at a specific angle. This comes in handy when creating art installations. New Object pallets: 1.More dynamic objects like the station core or the console on Impact. 2.Doors with similar properties to the Extraction targets that have a “switch” for opening/dissolving the door (think back to campaign and Spartan Ops Episodes). 3.Interactive objects like elevators, sliding doors, gates that open/close (like High Ground in Halo 3, and other varieties), 4. Adjustable Light Bridges: Remember Halo CE when you had to activate the light bridge and other Halo campaigns? If you remember, than that is what we mean. As a forge-able item we would be able to set the width/length to some extent. The Light Bridge would be customizable to team and objective gametypes, have a on/off switch option and not behave like one way shields of shield doors. It would feel like a regular bridge, but look way cooler. 5. Activation Switches: currently when we forge elevators, traps, sliding doors, etc we have to use a bunch of objects and special placements to make things work. Interactive switches would revolutionize this and would lead to even more innovative creations. The Activation Switch would probably work better than using time resetting with man cannons and crates to create elevators. One example of a switch would be a button, that when pushed, would have an expandable arm. This arm would push or thrust objects. There could be different types of switches. Some would be like a short hydraulic burst, while others would slowly extend and contract. Either of these ideas could be used as an elevator and gravity volumes. There are other uses for switches. These are just a few easily explainable examples. 6.Teledoor: This interactive object would allow forgers to essentially “cut” a door into objects like blocks walls/coliseum rock walls, two merged objects, etc. and would be able to be expandable. To understand this, think of a coliseum wall. You take this Teledoor, place it where you would like an opening, and when the object is set right the wall within the door boundaries becomes either clear or transparent, like a shield door or an object boundary. To make this work this Teledoor would function like a teleporter, with a sender/receiver node on either side, but the player would not really notice he was teleported as it would be seemless and almost instantaneous. This tool would really change the way we forge maps and would open up a flood of new ideas and designs due to less limitations. 7.Water Volumes: Think of Far Cry 3. With their map program you can add Water Volumes to map. Think of them like cousins to Gravity Volumes. 8.Fog/mist volumes. Not much description needed here. Think of Water and Gravity Volumes. 9.More varieties of all objects, especially Natural, Blocks, Decorative, Doors, Ramps and Walls, and new Palette categories. 10.Give us rocks with more forge-able properties such as at least one smooth edge, and some that are slightly curved, like curved walls, and block shapes (think Sandbox, H3. Remember building pyramids?) 11.*Add spherical to object shapes for objects (currently only Cylinder, box or none), trait zones, spawn items, etc. Experienced forgers use object shapes to define larger object boundaries and other aesthetic or symmetrical aspects of a map. As far as Spawn items go, like Safe and Kill Zones, having Spherical added to the other two shape options would make zoning some maps, such as geomtrical spheres and air-vehicle based maps easier to set boundaries. *Dynamic coordinates and rotational points system: At the moment our coordinates and rotational system is set to fixed axis points. This works OK for basic object rotation, but it is otherwise cumbersome in many other situations where the object requires more than one axis shift. Experienced forgers can work around this, usually be finding the position you want, and then rotating the object to fit the updated coordinates. The option to use a secondary, more Advanced Mode. There are two aspects to this Advanced Coordinates System: 1. The Coordinates are fixed on the Forge Monitor itself (fixed on you and your screen's orientation). Which ever direction you face, the coordinates would move with you. When you move while holding an object the object would keep whatever orientation it had when you grabbed it. And, when you reset the object coordinates while holding the object in the Advanced Mode it would reset oriented to you, not the fixed standard coordinates system; 2. The second Advanced function would allow you to “lock” or “fix” specific coordinates. This would be very helpful when rotating an object into a position that only requires one (or two) axis directions. Currently when you rotate objects freehand you have to make fine tuning adjustments (which works easier with precision editing as an option) *Give us more varieties of rocks, trees, bushes and include other natural items. *Canvass and Object DLC: Basically, giving us new Standard objects (blocks, decorative, etc) with updates as DLC. We should have many more objects with the standard release anyhow, but in addition to that suggestion we would like to receive object DLCs with either add-ons to current palettes, or completely new Standard Palettes. There should be no problem with Object DLC. We have 300 GB harddrives, for the love of Pete! *Change time of day (night/day): This can be done on the Far Cry 3 engine as well. And, as I recall, in the classic tank game Tanarus maps were either dusk dawn, day/night on their own cycle. If you played a game match long enough (Tanarus matches would last hours if possible—not like Halo matches, which are very fast paced in comparison) you would see the sun set and would be driving in night vision. From a Forge perspective, it would be nice to either set the time of day, or have a period of time elapse, like starting the game at dusk or dawn, since most games don't last that long in Halo. I miss Tanarus.... *Interchangeable pallets: This would be the ability to import the palettes of other maps (Erosion, Impact, forge Island as three examples in Halo 4). An example would be forging on Impact, but being able to exchange the Impact palette for the Forge Island palette. If you had already used some Impact objects than the Forge Island would be missing as many from it's palette (equal exchange?). *Expand boundaries on forge maps: Some of the time spent on locking out forgers from parts of the map seems like wasted time, and frankly just annoying. Give us more areas to explore. If there is a frame rate issue, than no one will use it. But, for the love of Pete, stop locking us out of areas of the map that should not be unaccessible. Examples would be the area above the Foundary (the back corner) and the ceiling in Erosion and the cavernous areas off the Green pool and parts of the ceiling, and the Green pool (would be nice to get a green fog effect like the waters on Forge Island) or the decorative boxes surrounding the Foundary Griffball area; the far sides of the asteroids on Impact, etc. You get the point. It makes no sense and it would give hackers one less reason to hack the maps. Seems like a win win to me. *Expanded options in Advanced settings for objects/vehicles/spawns, etc. One of these would be seeing customized gametypes that you created show up in Advanced settings lables, rather than just Slayer or CTF/Flood. This would allow Forgers to have multiple Slayer or Flood variant modes in a single map, rather than having to make multiple versions of the same map to create various game types with specific spawn locations and object/vehicle spawns. Ability to apply multilabels to specific objects or spawns. An example of this would be designating spawns or vehicles to appear in multiple gametypes, and not spawn in others. *A(n increased) Forge Budget that does not come with specific object limitations per palette; or, in other words, just a budget and when you pick an item you see the total number of objects you have available to you, rather than just the specific object you are selecting. This would come in handy for those maps that require more bridge/platform palette items, for example, or more natural objects. After all, maps with too many reflective or other objects have decreased frame rate issues, so no matter what the Forger will have to make adjustments to get the right environment for playability anyhow. But the point is, we should have more freedom in choosing how many of a certain type of object we want to use. If we did it would be yet another reason to not be curious about modded maps with extra pieces. With this new idea of the Budget we could use 200 blocks if we so choose, it would just show us how many total objects we have less. *Dynamic Magnetic System: This new system would be: 1. An improvement of the current system, with points in pairs at the corners and mid points of object edges in a uniform way; 2. The ability to activate/deactivate magnets, either as a whole, or selected groupings of magnetic points, allowing for rotation along certain axis points; 3. Addition of magnetic plates, which would be magnetized sides, rather than just points. The plates on objects would form polygons that could be expanded or collapsed. For example, you want to have objects slightly merged, you collapse the magnetic polygon dimensions; 4. You would have individual magnetic points and magnetic plates available in your inventory. These could be used for custom made objects, for example, or aligning natural objects, etc.; 5. Magnetic plates can be set to three basic forms: Circle, Triangle, Square. Each can have dimensions adjusted symmetrically (locked), or asymmetrically (select axis locked), to create ovals, rectangles, longitudinal triangles, trapezoids, etc.; 6. You could use magnetic plates of points to form limitless 3-D shapes, that could become the "core" of new custom objects; 7. Building upon what was mentioned with the second point, with magnetic plates you would have different properties with different magnet strengths ( weak, medium, strong); 8. Another aspect of the new magnet system is "chaining." Chaining is when three or more (usually more are link via the magnet points/plates and can be moved as one from a stationary position. The chained objects (i.e. several 1x1 blocks) can be moulded in two specific ways: a. Chained objects can be formed into pre-set forms (triangle, square, circle, polygon, hexagon, octagon, etc) or grab-dragged and twisted into organic, fluid forms. Using the batch-grab tool described earlier in this list the monitor can move the chained or batched objects and rotate them as a unit. This could come in handy for both functional and purely aesthetic purposes. Especially using tools like Invert/Mirror. *Separate the object budget from the Spawns (initial and Respawn), and spawn zones. *Ability to customize the loading screen screen shot in custom games for maps/custom game modes. *Ability to use a spawn/trait zone system that can label call-out areas, such as with the standard maps in Reach. “Elbow” “Blue Room” “Infirmary” etc. There could be standard descriptions or custom labels. *Custom Loadout labels: You would be able to add custom labels to the Game Loadouts in the same way you can label your own personal Loadouts. *Ability to turn on/off the fuzzy loadout screen, or add other effects. *Bring back Assault, multiflag, neutral flag/bomb, VIP, Juggernaut, Race, Invasion, Stockpile, Headhunter and other custom game types, or at least give us the level of Advanced customization options we need to create these and other new gametypes. Expand our customization options. There can be specific gametypes that come with each new Halo, which is what you see with Battlefield, but we should be able to put together any of the known custom gametypes in custom games. *Spherical objects: These objects could be spherical, with stone, Forerunner/Covenant design, or marble like textures or reflective metal. *Timer/Delay/Reset: Ability to set a timer, instant reset (unspawn and wait to respawn again) and delay time on object spawning. This would make creating elevators A. less expensive, less meticulous, and more functional in competitive and mini games, and B. If you need an example, think of fusion coils/kill balls. You can set them to constantly respawn by setting them with fixed, unselecting item, manipulating max/min count and nudging the object to “fall.” This does not happen as fast with crates and other non-fixed objects, and you can't get a timer/reset spawn with fixed objects like blocks or man cannons. If you could set a man cannon to spawn in coordination with a crate (or perhaps a specific elevator non-fixed object you could have a real, simple, functional elevator. And who knows what else creative forgers can come up with?! *More dynamic grid options, such as expandable spheres/cubes/tetrahedrons and other 2D/3D polygons. This options would be useful esp if 343 does not allow terrain manipulation. *Hybrid gametypes: This would be the ability to create gametypes that include more than one individual gametype (Think of a CTF game with Dominion locations with trait zones that can be activated when either team controls the Dominion sites (read next block); or Flood CTF, or how about Flood Griffball. *Expanded use of trait zones connected to gametypes, such as trait zones that can be activated with gametypes, like Dominion; and the ability to have trait zones that have specific traits for one team, and a separate category of traits for the opposite team. Meaning those who control Dominion sites would have certain advantages, such as quicker shield recharge time, or camo, while the team trying to take the Dominion site might experience dampened shields, slightly slower movements or jumping, but maybe increased damage to enemies. The options are almost limitless. One example of this would in the classic pc tank game Tanarus you had CTF combined with a type of Dominion and Slayer. The Dominion aspect were these Recharge Stations where you could repair your tank, reload/modify weapon Loadouts turbo boost, rockets, mines, etc, charge batteries, etc. They start out neutral at initial game start, and teams expand their territory by capturing drone sites. If you come near an enemy recharge station you will have batteries affected, and the drone above the station would shoot you. You could not use the station until you captured it. There was usually only one team mate that was the designated flag stealer, while the rest of the team would capture drone sites and seek and destroy enemy tanks. Each game had either four teams of five tanks, or two teams of ten tanks. So, from a Halo perspective, if trait zones could be tied to gametypes like Objective items/targets in Dominion or in the older Territories, this would be interesting and add a new level of customization to the game. I know I would attempt to create the perfect salute to Tanarus by creating a similar gametype in Halo. What would make me particularly happy is if the next Halo had vehicle repair stations, where if you get your vehicle there in time the station will heal and repair your vehicle. *Keep Green Screens *Flood mode similar to H4 (visually speaking), but with ability to turn on/off weapon usage, as seen in modded Flood gametypes. *Expanded Flood Gametype options, such as in previous versions (Halo 3, Reach) *Better selection of man cannons, and perhaps an option in forge to customize the thrust properties of specific man cannons. *More dynamic objective pallets like Dominion (I'm thinking Flood specifically) *Gametype-specific object pallets (think Flood or Griffball or Extraction) *New FX (Flood-like FX, etc) *Able to label spawning items like initial spawns or respawns for multiple game specific gametypes I basic editing. Example: I want to have team spawn/respawns at same location for multiple gametypes, but not for others. Currently you need to do multiple spawn set ups if one gametype initial spawns at different location. *Different Object Palettes for Human/UNSC, Covenant and Forerunner, Flood, Promethean, etc. The ability to change skin of object to fit one of these themed categories. *We should have the ability to designate gametype spawns as instand vehicle spawns, (like Race Gametypes in Reach. But we should have the ability to signifiy whether it is normal spawn, or a hybrid spawn, such as spawning directly into vehicles. Please PLEASE, for the love of Pete, give Forgers this freedom. My vehicle-themed maps would be happy if you did. *Random objects.... like scenery objects that have normal physics like the way the containers used to be on H3 oil drums, radio antenna, wire spools, dumpsters, and lets not forget exploding forklifts. *With Trees: It would be nice to be able to change to different skins. One with leaves/needles, one with snow, one without leaves/needles, one that's dry/dead. *Much more scenery limits and options- crates, barricades, boxes, computers, radio towers etc. What We can live without, but don't want to: *Fragment Editor: This would be a place or Mode where you could take any Forge item and engineer them into completely new “custom” pieces. One example would be to cut a doorway through a wall. or as far as to build an entire arena and have that available in your Forge menu as one "custom" piece. The Player can add textures and skins, and even even lights and other effects. The other part of this would be to have a market, perhaps connected to your Waypoint Fileshare, similar in some ways to the market found on Forza 3. In that game the player was able to build cars, set ups, skins, and vinyls... then load it to the store and sell it for a form of currency that is only usable in that setting. From a Halo perspective, the items would probably be available just like anything else in your Fileshare, with the exception that you could have more custom items listed on the Forge Market. This function would also allow the player to set the physics of each custom object. *An ability to switch off/on object colors in Forge and test a map with colors/without to see the difference in possible lag. This could help maps with lots of aesthetic details and object colors used for orientation/appeal, etc to have the right number of objects left neutral if it brings down possible lag. This should also include the ability to turn off/on other types of objects that effect frame rate, such as reflective objects. *Drone Camera: The DC would be similar to the loadout camera. It would be deployable and would help when forging in tight spaces where the program will often throw your monitor into spaces where you can not directly observe what you are doing. Experienced Forgers will often sign into Guest and use the Guest as a stationary viewpoint, but at the sacrifice of loosing half your screen. With a Drone you would be able to switch views. It would be nice to be able to “deploy” the drone while still holding an object. An alternative to this idea would be to allow your monitor to move through solid terrain and objects. The terrain/objects would become transparent, except for the basic contour edge lines and magnets. *Terrain editing: Another cool feature to the Far Cry 3 map engine. Players can brush over the landscape and create hills or pockets, and yet other tools, such as erosion and smoothing. *Environmental conditions: Yet another Far Cry 3 ability. Being able to add weather conditions (rain, snow, wind, fog). Also, earth quake tremors, such as with Battlefield 3 multiplayer maps. *Add AI (Firefight game modes): This is another benefit of the Far Cry 3 map creator engine. So far as it is known, to make this work for Halo Forgers would also have to have control over the Bot Paths/movements of the AI in order for a custom gametype like Firefight to work. You would want the AI to recognize the physical environment of your map (object placement, etc). I have read this in the thread linked above by Urban Bobcat, but even in that thread the concept of Bots and Bot paths is not really clarified. Perhaps those that know and understand this concept more should chime in on this thread and provide more in depth information for those of us that are not programmers (hint hint). *Ability to revert to a previous version of a map: This would be reverting to your previous save. *Object Texture palette: Ability to change or edit, create or import object textures, or to receive texture DLCs. *Firefight added to custom gametype editing options. *Ability to Forge on Spartan Ops/Firefight maps *Expanded solids besides blocks, such as the pyramidal stones in H3 Sandbox. *Make Gravity Zones expandable like trait zones and capable of being connected to Objectives (like Dominion). *Allow Forgers to have more control over modifying gametypes similar to how hackers have created modded gametypes like Gravemind, but make it official. *A Custom Game option similar to Invasion, where there can be multiple rounds, like Flood, but with each “round” customizable. This would be a take on the hybrid gametype idea. Basically, allow Forgers to create a gametype with multiple rounds, each round a different gametype of their choosing, like Invasion in Reach, but, say, the first can be CTF, second, Assault, third Flood or Infection, Last Snipers, etc.) This is just an example of what could be done. There are almost limitless options or variations.I could think of a type of Gun Master, Halo Style. *Map rendering: I wonder sometimes if being able to rendering our maps so there would not be all the objects but locked and merged objects smoothed into each other, etc. If this was possible would it reduce lag?

  23. Truly a map that many may wish to visit in real life. The attention to detail and beauty does not in the least detract from play-ability. You find yourself in the quarters of what was once the residence of a great lord over the earth. From 2v2, to 4v4, to possibly even a chaotic 6v6, this map offers red vs blue slayer, strongholds, and an innovative style of neutral flag. If the serene atmosphere of the inner chambers, or the rustic quality of the outer ruins dont steal your attention away from your enemy, you will find a very competitive match.

  24. After such a long time of not being on the site (but dropping in to the shoutbox with little response xD), I’d like to introduce my latest work in forge: Siege. Siege is a new infection map set in a forest at an abandoned research site once known as the “Siege Research Center”. After a terrible accident nothing but dead bodies remain. It features what I believe to be a unique integration of verticality by having little wooden towers connected by bridges, allowing for many great opportunities to implement the use of Halo 5’s mechanics such as ground pounding or thrusting from one bridge to another as a shortcut. As far as gameplay is concerned, the infected players’ spawn room is a little lab (once part of this research center) at the end of the map, featuring a pipe that launches players into the jungle. The jungle is the survivors’ playground. Also, I highly recommend that survivors take advantage of the towers and bridges, rather than linger in the confusing forest on the bottom. Of course, certain weapons might be worth swooping down and taking a risk for every now and then. Speaking of which, weapon placement is not yet finalized on this map. I intend to change them up based on feedback, including which weapons and where they should go. The aesthetics had a lot of thought put into them. I decided to use the perfect combination of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors with the right level of metallic finish, all working in unison with the new textures feature to create what I believe to be very beautiful and artistic aesthetics that I don’t think are too common on forge maps at this point. You’ll also find that I decided to make the lab very sleek looking as compared to the slightly aged look of everything else to create some contrast, which is essential to any work of art. Of course, this isn’t intended to primarily function as an aesthetic map, but being a huge design geek I had to try my best. Now I know this map isn’t perfect, and I’m very willing to take feedback. I would love to get this featured, because I really want to get out there. My dream is to get this into matchmaking, and I will work as hard as it takes as ridiculous of a goal as that may sound. Here are some more pictures which might show you a little of what I talked about. The map is called “Siege” and is under my files, gamertag being “Dezert Fuze”. Please do not hesitate to give me feedback. CLICK HERE FOR HALO WAYPOINT PAGE
  25. Halo 5 has huge potential with custom games and forge, and so many people have made incredible maps. I'm sure we've all seen flapjack frenzy! However, there is a fatal flaw with custom games that prevents a lot of maps from being played the way they were meant to be.Player stats/traits are the same for EVERYONE! There are no leader traits in Halo 5, or any way to make one spartan/team different from another! This severely limits and game types/maps that require one or more players to be stronger or weaker than another. One example is Slenderman, where one player is supposed to be the invulnverable Slender Man that hunts the other players as they run and hide.But if the Slender Man is invulnerable, then so is everyone else. So players have to use honor rules for this to work. This fatal flaw prevents a lot of maps and game types from being played properly and I hope 343 sees this because it is such a small, manageable addition that would add SO MUCH to Halo 5's Custom games, and Forge.I go into more detail in this video:
