Map Description

  1. D4rkDeath
    Viking redone with improvements to aesthetics, geometry, and game play. You will notice a few things are different on the map, like the center hill is no longer completely open, some sight lines have been tweaked, a small cave was added to the already exiting cave towards the dam on red side. This design helps the map translate better into Halo 5 game play.

    There is now a functional river!!!! This has been long desired on this map and there have been many attempts, it took moving the map to the outside of Tidal to allow for a deeper river.

    Some weapons have been placed and heavily tested in different areas, but most weapons are where you would remember them to be. This Viking is a bit different, but the nostalgia is all still there! Check it out!

    This project has quite a few people who should be recognized! This really took a village!
    @no god anywhere for his excellent work on creating the first version of Viking.
    @NOKYARD for porting the map over and trying many ideas that ended with much success. For doing the containment, helping with optimizing terrain and helping with countless other things.
    @WyvernZu for helping me swap the terrain to Tidal, moving the map outside the canvas, the excellent pelican area, some rock boundary changes, and plenty more.
    @CommanderColson for helping set the setting, the lighting, smoothing terrain, helping with design changes, and a multitude of other things.
    @Foge for his incredible help with creative optimization.

    10/5,
    Flawless victory.
  2. I could never explain to the common individual just how well you guys did here. Most importantly to myself, you guys clearly displayed respect for the design choices i made to the map originally and improved it elsewhere in every conceivable way. Most wont recognize or realize just how much work was done here but i assure you that i do, object by object.

    Tremendous work forgers. I sincerely thank you.

    Nice work D4rkDeath! Looks really good and the aesthetic captures a gritty vibe, while keeping it clean. I also enjoy your river.

    Thanks man, a lot of hands on this to make it happen. There isn’t much the forge community can’t do!

    You know me, I always nitpick remake aesthetics. I think your colors are bit less Valhalla and Ragnarok, and a bit more gloomy dark Forge World. At least that's the vibe I'm getting at this stage. If it were me, I'd make the distance fog slightly more like periwinkle to feel closer to the original. Maybe the rock style is fine, but it does feel more gritty than ever. The river is 10/10.

    Other than that, I love the new shapes. I can't wait to play this because it will almost certainly play better than any Valhalla ever.

    We took some liberties in hopes of it looking better, it’s evolved a bit from the original in order to feel like you are on the original, but fresh.

    To say you got it right or did tremendous Forging is the understatement of the century.
    Phenomenal from top to bottom and you guys did NoGodAnywhere proud with elements reminiscent of his mixed with the masterfully crafted new and its perfect.

    While working on this with a few people, @Foge and I had discovered a 400 something piece covenant cruiser prefab under the canvas! We were baffled, lol. We had worked very hard on getting the performance right, but after that... it was better hahaha!
