Map Description

  1. Foge

    Introduction

    This map was made quite a while ago and was intended to be tested for the original launch of the Halo 3 Throwback Playlist, however we were not able to perfect the map before the playlist launched.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Remaking Narrows

    Since this map was originally made with a very rushed time frame in mind, the majority of the map was made within a time frame of about a week. In this week me and Portaleer basically worked non stop all week long to get everything right. The problem with past Narrows remakes was that none of them were scaled correctly at all and none had all the necessary jump ups.

    Portaleer also really wanted an excuse to make an atmosphere that truly matched the mysterious Forerunner aesthetic seen in the original Narrows.

    We wanted the remake to be as close as possible to the original and include all the trick jumps and spots on the map which others lacked..

    Weapon Layout

    For the weapon layout, we looked at the post Title Update version and MLG variants of Narrows from Halo 3 and began working off of the weapon layout seen on that version of the map.

    Overshield x2

    Rocket Launcher x1

    Sniper Rifle x2

    Shotgun x1

    Plasma Rifle x2

    Plasma Pistol x2

    Battle Rifle x4

    SMG x2

    Needler x2

    Plasma Grenades x10

    Frag Grenades x6

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Supported Gametypes

    Currently, Narrows supports Slayer, CTF, Oddball, and King of the Hill, with 8 players maximum.

    Be sure to play with Classic settings for optimal gameplay.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Thank You for reading the post, be sure to give me and Portaleer any feedback if you run into any problems when playing the map. Special thanks to Nokyard for helping with finishing touches and the ballin script below the map. Also thanks to Angelitico for allowing us to incorporate ideas from his narrows remake into this map. Be sure to follow Portaleer and I on xbox (GT- Portaleer/Foge) for more project updates and stuff. Peace Out

    No. It was decided that no original hiding spots would be recreated the the Classic Throwback playlist.

    In other words, find your own damn hiding spots.

    This is fantastic, great work on this guys! Don't think we've ever seen a remake this close to the original before. Mynx had a nice one. Can't wait to play this soon! #CFnominated :)

    One of the best remakes for sure - it truly looks like...not just an attempt...but a faithful version of what Narrows would look like if it was an original map made for Halo 5.

    Possibly the most impressive remake I've ever seen!

    Thanks everyone! I hope you enjoy your experiences on it in customs and matchmaking alike. This was incredibly fun to build and if it weren't for the classic performance issues limiting us, we would have wanted to expand on its visual even more! @Foge had to keep me on the aesthetic leash for this one but the balance turned out nicely. I'm pleased with it. Thanks again, all! :hot::forge::hot:

    Does not help that 98% of the map is visible within your FoV at each base.

    This map looks far better and somehow more nostalgic than the original.
    I am awe struck. O_O

    This looks amazing.
    I haven't played H3 in ages (the MCC port-over was garbage and laggy) so to see Narrows in such good quality in a Forge creation, is excellent :)

    Good job!

    Wow guy, you nailed it.. I don't know what to say.. At least I helped with some ideas ... Thanks to all of you I have the helmet. I feel like I'm in debt with you, so any favors or help just ask.

    I have internet now, maybe we can play or forge together again..
