Skyline

10

Map Description

  1. D4rkpr1nc3
    This is my remake of the Halo 4 map, Skyline, forged outside of Eden. This version, 2.0, is up scaled to play better in the Halo 5 sandbox.

    I tried to stay as aesthetically true to the original map as forge would allow.

    The map is set up for 4v4 slayer, strongholds, ctf, assault (and other ball gametypes) as well as ffa 6 to 8 players.

    10/5,
    This skyline remake plays perfectly and just like the original. It even plays well with Halo 5's new movement. I disagree with Nemesis about the lack of color, as this is true to the original, which was not an overly colorful map. Perfect remake.

    10/5,
    Perfect Halo 5-ized remake of one of the best Halo 4 arena maps. Tailored excellently for clamber and boost. Keep up the Halo 4 map remakes!

    10/5,
    Deceptively minimalistic, a closer inspection reveals an obvious attention to fine detail and a clear direction in terms of design. The lighting looks great, is well balanced and didn't cause any inappropriate glare/blooming ingame. Also makes great use of the skybox, really helps set the scene together with the antennas and all.

    Gameplay wise I expect the map to be 'matchmaking quality', very faithful to the original.

    A minor thing, but a more precise alignment of some assets (decals, lights, etc.) would improve the visual side further. Perhaps set the intro/outro cams to view the map itself aswell.

    All in all, a very solid map.
  4. I'm rating this map 4.5* out of 5 because you can tell painstaking detail and time was spent re-creating this map, however the colors perhaps could be modified. This map does not deserve a "1 out of 5" stars rating.
    *EDIT/new review: Lighting improvements look wonderful. 5/5 good job!*

    Seems a tad bright? Can't knock your craftsmanship though. It's hard to tell it's a Forge map at first glance because of how well you blended the shapes... Again, solid structure work.

    Map looks great, the overall structure is spot on.

    My biggest note is the map needs more color and by color I don't mean Blue and Red.

    Cause I hate when people cover there maps in team colors.

    But just color of your over all structures, the original was Black & White.

    So you should experiment with some colors to make the environment feel natural and a real.

    Right now its just all bright grey and just feels like a forge map or one 343 made but haven't skinned yet.

    The map is actually white, but the lighting of Eden makes it look grey.

    Yeah what I mean is try and use more than just one color to add some separation to the map.

    Thanks for the feedback. I changed the color of the bottom floor which added some contrast. Also added the dark wall panels behind the pipes. I will continue to look for spots in the original map that can add some more contrast.

    Version 1.0 is more of a 1 to 1 (maybe a little smaller), but aesthetically it's not as accurate

    I agree. I'm sorry I remade a black and white map with black and white...

    Nice design, too much like the original. 2/10 - xNemesis

    This remake looks incredible man, a lot of the textures look great. Looking forward to more of your stuff in the future

    Don't worry Darkprince, what xNemesis said is absolutely ridiculous.

    This remake is incredible, looks fantastic and plays great.

    Here's a gameplay video on this map:
