Well, it's that time again. A third rebuild of Forerunner.map which still fails to live up to the name in any way shape or form! :D

Cvilian Bipeds

Most of the added vehicles and bipeds, non-injected

SCARAB RUN

More Skulls and more Bipeds

SABRE ADDED WOO

Making the bipeds shinier to give the illusion of being wet from the rain

Placable effects test...

..has some strange effects

When you take control of a Monitor:

Reintroducing... PLANES!

Also went and added some new terrain 'blobs' for creating more natural looking terrain on top of the planes or adding onto existing terrain

To aid that, we have Terrain 'discs'

And why not add some wooden forge pieces?

Spheres because Forge lacks round objects

Glass spheres look 20x better when within the normal map area:

Other random props (protip: marine helmet can be colored)

I may or may not stick with this skybox:

I am not kidding when I say that these snuck into the map without me knowing (only Pelican is drivable, Phantom/Spirit are having seat problems (or something idfk)

Current Public Version: v3.8a

ETA for next update: Unlikely to ever come without a full rebuild, I am busy with my gaming community and pretty much every planned feature is either already added or simply won't actually work due to the amount of tags being loaded (or map size idk). Also trying to learn some amount of programming and start developing games.

Spoiler

Infact I have something to show for it (ehh somewhat). Here you can download a launcher test..thing I cobbled together. It serves no real function in terms of a game but most launcher functions work to some extent.

The username/pass are written to a file (in a real test they would be connecting to an auth server, but I don't have one at the moment (shocker). The update checker works in a very basic way, in that it checks to see if a file exists on a web URL. It doesn't check size nor is there any true version checking, it will say there is an update regardless of if you are on the latest version (but if the file were removed from my webserver it would not find an update. Various settings are built into the launcher and are all written to config files. The license key input is written to a file as well. If you put an application or any file for that matter into the versions folder it will infact run it through the launcher.

If my project starts to get some amount of progress behind it in terms of an actual game, I will start a new blog on this site relating to it.

Launcher v0.0.4 Downloadhttp://www.mediafire.com/download/d587c87pvddcvum/WindowsFormsApplication2.exe

*This is uncertain, may or may not happen*WARNING: Upon the map's final release, the current forge menu layout will be merged into the default Forge palette. This will cause any maps created prior to break (assuming they work between updates). Because of this, there will be a version immediately before the forge menu redo with the final feature set to let those who have maps already to play them, and the MapID *may* be changed for the final release.  tl;dr, It isn't happening. Forge as you please.

Please be aware that I will not be making every version available for download. The public version will be updated when I feel there are enough changes that are worthy of an update (mainly because it takes a year to upload the files)

Multiplayer Compatibility: v3.7 and below confirmed to work (others are unknown, feel free to try it over LiNK and whatnot)

Known Bugs/Crashes: 1 (If you find any please report them)

  • Space Banshee no longer works (was likely broken at some point down the road)

Planned Features

Spoiler

======PLANNED FEATURES:

* Forerunner vehicles/weapons (so that the name will make sense, was actually the original plan for the first map) The whole map breaks with further injections (and apparently also tag dupes, the weapons would have been a bunch of forge object dupes attached to weapons or vehicles)

* PoA Scenery Map approaching 300MB, may not happen The whole map breaks with further injections

* Covie Cruiser Scenery Map approaching 300MB, may not happen The whole map breaks with further injections

* Grass, Snow, Sand, Water, Ice, Dirt, Rock, Marty, Volcanic Rock, Ash, Lava, and many more planes Done

* Finish Brute Plasma Rifle effects The whole map breaks with further injections (and apparently also tag dupes, would have been a recolored plasma rifle particle)

* MAC Cannon Map approaching 300MB, may not happen The whole map breaks with further injections

* A skybox from one of the CEA maps (or any skybox that looks cool AND WORKS) Map approaching 300MB, may not happen It Happened (Done)

* Placeable Effects (sparks, fire, etc) Halo 5 forge anyone? :D Effects either won't spawn period or will get attached to the crosshairs

I know the SFX issue, but the Seraph sounds quite funny with Banshee SFX XD.

There's no need to fix the bipeds, so don't worry about that.

So the frigate is in the Props menu? I'll search it again.

 

BTW, I'll send you a PM regarding the biped's seats.

If you go down, you will find multiple props menus. Apparently Reach has limits to the amount of objects that display in a forge menu so I had to create a second prop menu (More Props)

I had over 300 times to test a limit of the forge menu and I still worked (in addition).

 

and I have a reach tutorial on sound injection, but I would leave that till last.

There's no update yet TnT

mod's like this take a long time, and often have trouble when making the patch (EG: you cannot use your PC when exporting a patch of this size.)

That coupled with Halo 5's release and being the owner of a gaming network.
