Aquarius

4v4 Slayer
10

Map Description

  1. Tanix
    Summary:
    Aquarius is a symmetrical map with layout points of a more classic Halo feel (using asthetics of Halo Reach and Halo 2 to capture the style of map I was going for) Skybox contains simple buildings to make the player feel like they're in a city environment.

    P.S. The YouTube link shows the original version of the map. From the pictures above you can clearly see Aquarius has been updated.

    Available game modes are CTF, Slayer, Assault, and FFA

    Weapons
    Red and blue bases are 2 floors and both include: Carbine, SMG, H2 Battle Rifle, and a Brute Plasma Rifle.

    The Halo 2 Beam Rifle is the weapon pad choice for this map with an additional 3 neutral, non-pad weapons being the Shotgun, Needler, and Plasma Pistol.

    Overshield spawns opposite of the Beam Rifle in front of a wall spanning fish tank.

    There are 2x Frag Grenades that spawn together and 2x Plasma Grenades (one on Blue Deck and one on Red Deck)

    4x Fusion Coils and 2x Fuel Stations are also on the map.

    Special thanks to Widsio for doing nothing but telling me if things looked good or not lol

  1. Aquarius is a pretty solid map. The level of detail and layout design is quite an achievement. The urban-building environment leads us to a symmetrical experience, but with the inclusion of the diverse set of levels and hallways that keep players immersed. The aesthetics and level of detail is outstanding, even the background context behind the map's walls has been conceived from it's beginning. The design of very area is unique and plays well with the map concept, creating a fluid and exciting gameplay. Amazing work!

    Map looks beautiful from the forge through we were in earlier. I'll have to wait till I play it to so anything on the gameplay, but the design seems pretty solid.

    It's my first arena style map. I used to build maps for clans (prior to getting bored of doing it of course lol) But, thank you for if the compliment still stands

    Thanks for pointing that out as well

    Btw, just little suggestions:
    -Obscure the great windows of each base to have a better and realstic look through it (maybe gray 80-90%)
    -Add a forerunner texture and more lights to the city landscape, it would look more realistic.
    -Add a ceiling decorator on the mid room (the one with the shelves), it would look more dramatic :)
