Hey guys, just thought that it would be a good time to post my now-completed flood map; "Emerald Mine".

 

Gamertag: Robius5991

 

Map: Emerald Mine (In my fileshare)

 

Gametype: Flood Mode (Not the regular flood, the gametype's in my fileshare)

 

Description: When a group of soldiers no longer have anywhere else to hide, they evacuate to an old UNSC mining facility that was once used to gather the largely-present resource of emerald, found both in the stones and underground. However, once they lock the side-tunnel and blow the main gate, two Flood-forms still manage to enter. The soldiers must now use the facility and its large array of machines as cover while they battle the Flood. Luckily for them, as UNSC protocol states, there are turret stations present which may allow for an added defense against the Flood, although they must beware that they are heat-seeking and will attack any moving object.

 

Recommended Players: 8-16 players

 

Here's a video review for the map:

Very impressive Robius.. You've outdone yourself again with another great map. I like the theme of it and I think you made a really good use of the map's pieces. Plus I overall love flood/infection maps I enjoyed playing on this map as well as the aesthetics.

Your welcome man! I can understand as a fellow forger that it takes a lot to make a good and well balanced flood map that has good aesthetics as well as solid gameplay for any gametype anyways. So you deserve at least the gratitude and positive support from a fellow forger. And who knows maybe TheHaloForgeEpidemic will feature it? *wink wink*

Well bearclawskiller, I've got say that you must have some magic *wink wink -> telepathic powers* because the same day that you commented on this map, it was picked up by THFE, who gave it an awesome Aesthetics tutorial on their channel - of which I am very thankful to them. Then, just today I saw that Insanmiac announced the winners of his "Best of the Dead" contest and Emerald Mine placed 1st! I just wanted to thank you personally for the awesome support you showed for me when I posted the map, it really meant a lot and I can't believe that your prediction came true. Thanks a lot for your feedback and kind words!

Yes I did see that the TheHaloForgeEpidemic did give you a tutorial feature, because well come on the aesthetics were amazing. *Yawn I was always good with my predictions you know its not a big deal :). And yes I did see that Emerald Mine got 1st!!! On Insanmiac's Best Of The Dead contest and you deserve it man. Funny thing too, I was gonna try to get my map in that contest but I just couldn't finish my map in time so, maybe next time. Who knows...maybe a community feature*wink wink* Anyways just want to congratulate you in your accomplishments! I better see more maps in the future!

* And also nice YouTube man!*
