I know I had promised my maps to be released by summer, but this is it guys. I have a few maps already finished and ready to be released. The only thing I need to do first is take proper screenshots, and give them to Kills_Alone so he can make a few map videos. Once that is done you will have them.

maps forthcoming are...

1. Hollow (Crater- Halo 3 ODST map) Daytime version. 100%
2. Arbitration (Dim Covenant Holy Chamber themed) 100% (minus lighting)
3. Spiral (Forerunner Energy Room) 60%
4. Powerhouse (We all know this from Reach) 60%
5. Icon (Foreunner water treatment facility) 100% (tweaking spawns)
6. Index 343 (Covie Space station) 100%
7. Windward (Desert version of Sidewinder) 80% (needs textures)
8. Corridor (Ratrace redo with heavy Forerunner undertones) 100%

I will post up some quick screenshots of the maps in-game and update this to show them under the map entries. Expect the releases to be single based, as waiting for mass release will mean waiting till my 60% complete maps are finished. Questions? Comments? All are welcome! Long live H2MT!!!!

Sounds great albeit I hate powerhouse.

I wonder why people even bothered to port it to CE, much less Halo 2 Vista. It's by far the least appealing Halo Reach map (at least visually)

Maybe because it was the easiest?

Recreating any Halo BSP from complete scratch and only reference inmages is not easy. By saying any map is easy to recreate you effectively diminish our passion and time that we put into maps. If mapping so easy, their would be more maps out there to play.

As promised, here are a few images of some of the maps. I left Crater out......I don't want to spoil any suprises before it actually is released. Enjoy and discuss....

Corridor: (ratrace)




Windward: (sidewinder)
