Inspire – HD Halo 5 Forge Map

 

I’ve definitely caught the Halo 5 Forge bug. Inspire is a Halo 5 Forge map that features a moving gondola that traverses along three bases. This map was inspired by a Halo 4 campaign level, and works best to capture that same feel using the custom gametype Moving Stronghold. Inspire is also set up for Assault, Capture the Flag and Oddball, and has Multiteam spawns.
Man-cannons on two levels allow players to access each base. The lower man-cannons shoot teams high enough that even when the ship is out of reach of the cannon, they can ground pound down onto it.
Although each aspect of the map is simple, I enjoyed creating it and the challenge of scripting the gondola. It’s a blast to play on, and I really like how the colors turned out, and the vast Promethean feel.

Halo 5 Tips: Exploring Jumps on Tyrant

Halo Diehards members babe ruthlessx0, Aimless Gohan, Wuzz Ranger and I went into Tyrant, one of Halo 5’s newest Arena multiplayer maps, a few days ago after a game. We went through the map to learn jumps that will help us navigate more efficiently in the heat of battle. I recorded the session so we could share what we found.

 

Halo Diehards are Forging! Introducing Mists of Time

I’ve just finished my first Halo 5 Forge map, and am excited to share it with the world! Introducing Mists of Time, a remake of Destiny’s multiplayer map, Shores of Time.

Special thanks to all the gamers in the video from Creative Customs, hosted by o Nondual o, for your support and inspiration. Also want to throw a shoutout to my long-time buddies and Destiny multiplayer cohorts Rowboat 000 and BigBadMike, for helping troubleshoot issues with the layout.

Halo 5 Tips: How to Jump into Truth

Rowboat 000 comes through again, sharing Halo 5 tips and tricks with his friends. He taught me how to jump into the bases on the multiplayer map Truth, and I wanted to pass that onto you, so I made this little video to guide you through it.

Wuzz Ranger asked if I am using bumper jumper. Yes, I am, and this is definitely more difficult without it…
