Well, this is it: the release of my Halo map, Precipice. Thanks to everyone who has helped along the way, especially Llama Juice, with his ever-harsh criticisms, Con, with his beautiful sky, and Inferno, who helped me accomplish all the technical things I had imagined but never dreamed were possible.

And so, without further ado, I present Precipice.

Credits: To save time, here's the credits as they appear in the map:



This map IS protected, since I'd like at least a little while before the endless mods of it come out. I am planning to release an unprotected version in a month or two, after anyone who would play the map has already done so.

A little late/early, but hell this looks amazing I'm trying it now.

EDIT:
Now what script is it that makes the *ahem* fun start happening?
Or is that not in this release?

This is a well made map, I haven't played Halo in like a month or so in my comeback I decided to start again w/ this map, had a lil match w/ noobinator is not so good with two or 3 people but is nice, gonna wait until someone makes a server since I live in PR and the distance will cause lag.

That top bridge must be made of some insanely strong material to just hang out like that.

It's the Forerunners man, they can do almost anything without consulting physics.

But considering it was Forerunner, that stuff is usually tough junk.

For the longest time it was perfectly straight, with the hole in it, but after much discussion with people I went in, doubled the polygons on it, and realistically bent it downward near the middle. If you look at it straight on, it actually sags semi-realistically.

It is indeed an easter egg, but there is no script activation, and you can only activate it once per game to prevent cheating. For now I'll keep it a secret, but heres a hint: you need 4 people at once all standing in certain spots.

I think what I was most impressed by in this whole thing was not so much the map but the promo video. That video is simply... ASTOUNDING! The multiplayer cinematics, the smoothness, the overview of the map, everything was better than I have ever seen for any halo map.


EDIT:
@Slashrat
Oh cool. Is it something obvious or not so obvious? Don't tell me exactly what though, I want to find it myself.

I've already given too much information :P Glad you liked the video so much. I pulled out every Halo filming tool I had- had to revert 3 computers back to 1.07 to get them to work. Particularly useful was Patricksj6's camera tool- I didn't use that for A Halo CE Roadtrip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNjUoFRKoG8) , but this time I needed multiple actors and moving camera shots, and I had neither. This allowed me to program in a camera shot, then act myself. In the shot with the camera "attached" to the side of the banshee via FPbeta2.exe, I was flying the banshee on my desktop as I was filming, and my right foot was controlling the turret. Pretty ridiculous stuff. I pulled my younger brother in to help with some of the more complex shots, and then the day the video came out he left for a New Years party, so I had to teach my mom how to play halo. - _ - She's actually the one blowing my banshee out of the sky with a splaser. And all this because I was determined to have zero lag while filming :P

It is indeed a work of art and symmetry culminating a visual feast and a testicular tickle. I especially liked the map room (orbiting planet) it has a very authentic feel and much better than bungie would have done themselves.

Haha thanks- you might have been one of the people who was given early builds by some of the testers. I told them they could bring in small groups they knew they could trust.

The map runs the same as any other halo map, so if you can run Halo at all, you can run Precipice. It might lag a little if you're in certain areas, but not all that much, I wouldn't think.

Map is astounding! I never imagined such a work of art and gameplay could be created for this game. This is sure to be a hit online.

Haha- the controls in the bases are just for show- they do cool spinny things when you hit them :P The bacon one is its own little easter egg, referencing this classic meme: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/push-button-receive-bacon

I saw this was released on halomaps today and I downloaded it based just on the screen shots, WOW, I'm so glad I did, this map is so beautifully made, it reminds me of other beautiful multiplayer maps such as 'Portent' and 'Revelations'. I can't wait to play this on a server. Set it up on 1.09 plz!!
I'm a bit curious about the secret room that activates the laser head. Whats that all about? Anyway, congratulations, this really is a special map!

FANTASTIC MAP.

This is the quality of maps that I remember from the glory days. Sadly the actual players in the community never appreciate beautiful works of art like this. The lighting is amazing, really sets the mood of the map.

You should really be proud of yourself for this one!

Congratulations on a great release!
