I recall playing the game 5 years ago and aside from blood gulch, most people played on custom maps. However right now from the looks of it, most are playing on stock halo maps.
The the few that aren't stock maps that I often see are somewhat populated are bigassv2, extinction, coldsnap and sometimes the flood series. Is everyone experiencing this? Also any reason this is the way it is?

Of course there's tons of custom maps but they're all empty of people.



As an aside, does anyone know any good maps that are simillar to the flood series? A multiplayer experience of single player maps that take the user on an adventure? Something that they could bring their friends along into the server.

If you are looking for AI maps, SPV3 released last June, I don't believe it's on halomaps so you can download it at reddit.com/r/halospv3 or haloce3.com

Multiplayer AI maps aren't really multiplayer either.

Not a lot of people play the variety of custom maps anymore. Relative to the number of people playing stock anyway. That's just how it's gotten.

Don't know what the flood series is but this is a cool map that's been released recently.

It's got AI and the adventure is the one you make yourself. AI don't sync online though so you'll be playing it by yourself.

What are you even talking about? Ever since HAC2 came out custom maps got a lot more popular. Before that there were only a few servers with custom maps like coldsnap and extinction but now there are a lot more servers with different maps.

Welp, i made a mod that replaces the graphics of stock maps and makes them look more like modern halo games, i made this mod for people like you that like modded maps but can't find full servers to play them.

If you enjoy "the floods" try area 53-55 and madness series. I had lots of fun on them both with friends and by myself many years ago.

As for why aren't custom maps played anymore I think it's because majority of the player base today consists of South/Central-American pirates most of whom don't even know you can download or create maps.

Quite a lot of them download "portable" Halo which includes HAC2 already so they can download maps.

Awesome, thanks.

Would it also make the game more suitable for 20+ inch screens at 1080p?

If you mean that the hud won't stretch and that your fov could be higher, then yes.
