I wouldn't call it a cliché, maybe more of the lines that its a story that already has already been done in a game released 2 years ago (Halo 4 came 2012 right?) and in the halo novels. I'm glad you revised it though. I won't be on later 'today', since I live in Europe, I assume you live on the opposite side of the planet. Will reply when I wake up instead.

So something in the lines of forerunner planet that is hollow, and a spartan (or a team of spartans get stuck there)? Because then you are making Halo 4 ce :) /jk
No but seriously, I expect there to be some great things from this actually. Even though some of the halo 4 tags aren't very impressive, I see some potential in your team. I might still be interested in helping out. Though, in-between work and other activities in life, i've had too much trouble getting back into modeling. Contact me on xfire and i'll send you my work.
Yes it is very 'Hush, Hush' for no reason. Like, whatsup with the secrecy these days? Are you afraid of getting some constructive critique?

I play on easy, usually to learn the game and the maps, or to admire the new additions in a more forgiving atomosphere, then i play on normal. So yeah, people play on easy. stop assuming they dont.
Oh, and apparently since when i first played i console commanded it without setting a difficulty (so it would be on normal) it was still pretty hard for normal difficulty, atleast compared to the original Halo's normal difficulty. So yeah, its a challenge.
I never said it really bothered me, it just didnt make sense to me. thats all.
Quote: --- Original message by: X12_1992 Which means it bothers you. Might also point out what someone else said. It's a trivial issue. Get with the developers decision. Even if it doesn't line with what you feel makes 'sense' or is a logical decision.
How is it on purpose? It seems like a huge error, if its normal, use the normal logo. And its not game ruining, but its pretty annoying. I mean, why would they use the easy logo for the normal difficulty, yet still use the heroic logo for heroic difficulty. makes no sense. why would you skip from no swords to two swords.

Portent is also an excellent example, of how easy it so portal a map that has a great layout. Which it does.
Doesn't look like a lighting issue. But then it could be anything, that included. Try what he said, faulty smoothing groups could be it. Or some uvws that are mismatched. Try making surfaces planar as well.

I am 100% serious about this and some old members will understand.
You should focus on this. It shows more potential than most things this community produces.
Quote: --- Original message by: OrangeJuice I will relate you to that. Got no fingers left to be chopped off. Orunges.
Not how I use poof,
it's an expression of "there! it's complete!"
Never relate me to Katana, or how katana decided to use poof, or I will chop three of your fingers off with the dull edge of a butter knife.

Yeah, i always thought that the only two things that avalanche shared was the snow theme, and (Sort of) the shape. Haven't spent too much time in avalanche, being that it's not even on my top 10 list of halo maps. Now sidewinder on the other hand plays splendidly. It definitely needs to be modernized. Danger canyon should have been on that list. What a shame.

For the OS version, it would be nice if there were switches affecting things like the barriers above, allowing players to directly modify the flow of the map. (Recall Halo 3's 'Longshore').
I don't think you need OS to make that happen...? (but yeah, having active changes to the map like that would be really cool, actually)

-I'm on the fence when it comes to ripping. If someone was to rip a model to look at it in order to see it in 3D as opposed to a 2D sketch, then I would support them. But ripping a model and passing it off as your own is wrong.
This week I was trying to model a forerunner structure and I couldn't figure out how. On many occasions, I had downloaded models from the Halo maps website to simply throw into my map so I don't have to spend the time modeling. I decided "No, I'll make it myself."
So, I looked up examples of forerunner architecture and came across this
I had a look, decided it was worth a shot, and created this. http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff508/Hiralis/haloce2014-10-1319-06-40-78_zps0a567805.pngEdited by Storm on Oct 13, 2014 at 05:18 AM

Redo it, and this time with only one alpha :)
Really nice, Love how you got the human style down to an artform.
Quote: --- Original message by: Jobalisk But then you are also wrong to assume that. The issues are most likely a side effect from ripping and conversion. Not because bungie got lazy.
I'm aware of that, but seeing as these BSP's were made by Bungie I believe its safe to assume this map would still work reasonably well.
Didnt that stuff end a few chapters ago? TNJ
You should just go ahead and fix them instead of bypassing them. Compiling with errors in bsps usually leads to some nasty errors in game. Such as falling through bsps, The ghost getting stuck in the mesh etc etc.
Yeah that guy is hard to take serious. But then that is a normal thing for a select group of halomaps members. I know I said it before, But i'd love to see a new direction in the rpg series. Just repeating myself if you missed it.
Yeah what I am saying is perhaps you should spice it up with something different, for example make it "RPG *Whatever-name-you-could-come-up-with*" or how about RPG Final ? :)
Sure the rpg beta name is popular, and even if it was never intended to be a series of sort, you could still have it stray away from the, albeit stale name, RPG Beta. Just put it in the read-me that is a part of the RPG Series.
I never were a big fan of rpg beta, I tested out the first three builds with gibbo, and were even up for doing some modeling stuff for him, and honestly, i just get the feeling its just a bunch of half good tags chucked in there to let the player do 'whatever' really.
It never felt consistent. And judging from the screens of the later editions, its just a bunch of really bad design work, and really bad unwrapping. If you are going to make the next chapter, at least aim for something new, or go back to the original ideas gibbo had (Which never got fully realized) There are a bunch of tags and so forth that the rpg scene could really benefit from. Plus these huge maps have a tendency of become very popular (Hugeass, Coldsnap, Extinction and the 'fresh' out of the oven Bigass).
Lots of words. Sorry.
