Map Description

  1. D4rkDeath
    Attention Star Wars fans! This map took me a very long time... I wanted a lot of Star Wars feel to it. The map is about 90% accurate when it comes to the layout of the actual throne room. After a lot of research and pictures I made the scale bigger in order to have it also feel very Halo. The map has great aesthetics for authenticity and plays well with all game types. Slayer and Strongholds definitely had the best feel playing this map, however CTF and Breakout are both supported. Great multi layering with the catwalks, and a nostalgic death sequence if you happen to fall into the chasm. The map is a little dark in a few spots, however it is part of the authenticity and doesn't hurt the gameplay. I would of added a bit more detail if I had the extra space, but it's the perfect blend for halo! This map has been play tested thoroughly and is a lot of fun on the weekly customs night that I host!

  1. Highly immersive map that takes you straight back to Return of the Jedi...this map makes good use of the metal forge block texture and even features the nostalgic TIE-fighter-like windows. I spent quite a while walking around it admiring the recreation of the famous movie scenes (there is also plenty of verticality). This map is worth checking out in forge mode alone!
  2. Crazy level of detail here. Particularly love the Emperor's window. Big fan of Star Wars maps so you definitely got my vote.
  3. Amazing attention to detail. Plays smoothly. Cool lines of sight.

    Great attention to detail. Played surprisingly well, considering how true to concept you stayed with the layout. Love the pipes. Love the light at the bottom of the pit. Interesting lines of sight.

    Would be interested to see some more talented players play a round on this map. We tended to bunch up in a couple key areas when we played, but I suspect that was driven by unfamiliarity with power-weapon spawns (and I think we were 3v3 on a pretty big map).

    Overall, nice, nice work.

    Same general thoughts as rick. When I first saw this, I thought it was a terrible idea for a map, but it actually played really well.

    Really pretty map, too.

    I may or may not of updated the map when I sent it your way, lol. I did the update a bit ago, but I didn't update it on here until now.
