In Response To: Re: Pete's Forge Island Review (Phoenix_9286)

: They said the big island would contain Blood Gulch, right? Because I'm not
: seeing that. At all. Travel time from one end to the other in a warthog
: feels much too short. Even if it was just from the front door of Red to
: the front door of Blue.

: Whatevs. I got it, but I'm less than impressed. I like hills, cliffs,
: beaches, and water that you can see more than six inches into. Halo 4
: Forge hasn't inspired me as much as Reach + Forge World did.

I don't remember if I said this to you already or not, but it's not supposed to be impressive, it's supposed to be a mostly blank canvas without much stuff taking up memory, so people can build a lot and have the game still actually run.
I've been meaning to mention also that there are other areas. For some reason everyone I've seen talking about it hasn't noticed the other rocks sticking out of the water, or thought about what could be done with the edges of the tops of the islands, or what could be done with the general shape and profile of the islands, or the very convoluted surface of every side of the islands that isn't the top. You want pre-made non-flat geometry? You saw the size comparison, this map has tons of it, and you'd probably be surprised at how much of it you can walk on. Hopefully (other) people who Forge have noticed this stuff and won't let it go to waste.
