I have a project in the works and need a list of the best looking maps made for the Halo Custom Edition game. I am not looking for the best game play or the most fun, I am looking for the best looking. I don't care about weapons sets, bipeds or vehicles what I want are the maps that are artistically pretty, beautiful or embody the true spirit of the art of Halo. And in case you are wondering Hugeass and ColdSnap are not what I had in mind. I have my own list but I am willing to be swayed or reminded of the maps I may have forgotten.

So start making your lists I will post more details when the project is complete. Thanks

-Dennis

It's been a really long time since I played it. But from what I remember Chronopolis looked pretty good.

Here's a few pretty ones:

Autumn Slay: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=380
Church: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=3135
Grove: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=2015

There are many others, but these are a few of my favorites.

If you just want pictures, Blood Gulch makes really good pictures.

Otherwise, there's:

Celer Exile ODST

CMT Snow Grove

Celebration Island

Church

Portent

If you can find them, the CMT MPGE3(I think, whichever's the latest released) maps are good.

Don't diss him. Some people have different tastes. Not every1 is like you.

Revelations. That has to have the best sky ever created for Custom Edition, it looks... 'nice.'

Revelations, Garden CE, Lost Cove, Lumoria (IMO), Ivory Tower, Yoyorast Island v2, Autumn Slay, and probably Valkyrie RC2 (i think it was Rc2; whatever newest version is out there)

Its not a question of taste, Celer Exile ODST is one of those shoddy RPG maps with massive pixelated textures, it looks gross.

Nice 800x600 res bruva.

Seriously, if you see the textures as massive when you play the map, your computer must just be terrible. That is assuming you actually played it...

You kidding ? I made the BSP and textures and I won't ever say it's ''Pretty''... altho this is a mod of my map it still uses my BSP and I know they look terrible. People like them for gameplay, not for the looks.

Even though I made the mod, I agree with bobble. The BSP is awful. Some of the scenery and weapons are excellent, but this is not what Dennis is looking for.
