Re: Halo Forge Survey
Date: 1/8/14 7:06 pm
In Response To: Halo Forge Survey (SEspider)

: This is to fuel my couriosity and possibly to help inform 343 Industustries
: what we Like, Miss, and Want in future Halo Forge Modes. I realize that
: there have been dozens of other threads before this discussing Forge and
: it's short-comings and/or changes over the years. I do not wish to go that
: route with this thread. We are very blessed to even have Forge. And I feel
: we need to remind ourselves of that from time to time. I also feel we need
: to thank the game's many developers for their hard work and dedication to
: keep the mode alive and growing.

: This is a pretty simple survey that expands among all Halo console games
: consisting of a Forge Mode. Halo on PC and Mac are exempt from this survey
: due to how big of a beast their map customization has become in comparison
: to their console counterpart. Mode, Hacks, and Glitches are also exempt
: from this survey. Now on to it we go.

: 1) List your favorite Forge Object or Group of Objects and why?
: 2) List your favorite map to Forge on and why. Please try to keep this answer
: simple and short.
: 3) List no more the three NEW changes you would like to see in future Forge
: modes.

: I ask that you please not change your answers after posting. So please think
: about your answers before listing them. Also, please don't compare custom
: maps. Thank You All for taking part.

1) Natural stuff. Rocks, trees. It's amazing how big a difference trees made to Forge Island maps (for the better.)

2) Forge Island. While Forge World was in many ways more attractive (from a scenery standpoint, if not the pieces), the simplicity and options Forge Island presents outweigh its downsides.

3) Group, copy, paste, undo-- that's sort of four, sort of one. In my mind, you can group objects by painting a la Halo Wars, group those objects and then lock them like you can with single objects or manipulate them as a block. A single undo lets you avoid making those accidental "whoops" moments. And the copy and paste ability combined with groups means you can rapidly make a symmetrical map in minutes.
