Installation 04B

2v2 Strongholds

Map Description

  1. xXBarthXx
    Cortana: "Halo. It's so new... unfinished. I'm not exactly sure what will happen when we fire it..."

    John-117: "We'll head for the Portal. And we'll all go home."

    Hey everyone, and welcome back to Installation 04B!

    You may notice this map is very similar to the warthog run on the last level of Halo 3, however it has been modified to fit into Halo 5's multiplayer!


    How to play

    The gametype you should use is Warthog Run. Here are the settings:

    • Teams are on
    • No friendly fire
    • Damage is lowered so banshees are not too OP
    • No sprint, thrust, etc. so it is similar to Halo 3
    • One stonghold on map, one second capture, one point to win the round
    Teams of 1-3 players (use Red, Blue, Yellow, Green and Purple Teams only) must grab a warthog and drive through the maps path in order to reach the hanger of the Dawn. However, teams must be on the look out for other players in warthogs racing them, shooting them, trying to knock them off, and they must be aware of one team which uses banshees to try to kill everyone. Each round one team is chosen to fly the banshees and the rest drive. First team to the Dawn wins (banshees are unable to enter, so don't worry about cheaters).

    The map uses pressure plate scripting that allows for some of the floor tiles to fall once the players reach certain points in the map. Therefore, players must always be on the look out, since the map is constantly changing before your eyes :)

    Extra Notes

    I would like to thank the Forgehub team for finding the pressure plate technique and creating a tutorial for it, ChewyNutCluster for helping me make the technique work (I spent almost 4 hours trying to figure it out lol), and everyone who helped me test it. Also, in the video it may seem like the banshees are not doing enough damage, that has been taken care of :)

    I will continue to update the map/gametype based on feedback.

    To download, add me as a friend, xXBarthXx, then go to my profile in Halo 5 and look for it on my fileshare.

    That looks very cool, and very well made, I love how you dubbed Cortana in the video made for a really good showcase.
    If you have any budget left you could try figure out some explosion effects for when the floor drops like in Halo 3

    Thanks!

    I do have a little budget left, but I'm not sure if I can do explosions.

    I tried it already but ran into a couple problems:

    1. There are no "big" explosion pieces
    2. I use pressure plates that move an invisible block underneath the tiles that fall. Those tiles fall depending on how much time it takes the invisible block to move 64 units. If I had an explosion go off when you run into the pressure plate, the explosion would go off right away and the player would most likely not see it, and it would go off before the tile falls which would make no sense lol.

    But I'll continue to mess around with the map to see what I can do :)

    Ohh that's cool, Check out the map, Run to the Shrine (I think its called) on here, at some point you run into a bridge, and it explodes and despawns, and another pat spawns, it was a very cool mechanic not sure how he did it, but if it can be figured out imagine on your map having explosions (that didn't need a trigger perhaps) but exploded on a timer somehow like his does

    Oh yeah, I have seen that map. I may take a look at it to see what he did. That map is really awesome and actually kind of inspired me to make this map after seeing what could be done with scripting :)

    Glad you're taking the time to post updates to this map because it would be cool as heck to play if complete.

    Thanks!

    It does work now, whether you just want to play alone or with friends, but I am continuing to update the map to make it more balanced overall :)
