Hello again everyone! Ascend here. We had to check Shooty into a rehab facility for those suffering from pun overload. While he is recovering, I'll be drawing up this week's update! With the 1v1 Forge Contest entering it's next phase of judging and with cool new content landing on the site, we're bound to have some fun! This week we take an in-depth look at some of the discussions taking place in our forums as well as some awesome community made content!
On October 27th, the 1v1 Forge Contest Judges announced that they have made their first round of cuts in the contest. Each judge played through all 90+ maps and deliberated on the next list of candidates for more comprehensive testing. To see the full list and current standings, visit the TRELLO BOARD!

A Special Note
On behalf of the ForgeHub team, I'd like to congratulate @Black Picture on his new job at 343i. Black is a long time community member, an avid forger and an awesome dude. We can't wait to see what you bring to us in the future. Congratulations!
As always, we get to see new and awesome content from you each week! Here are some awesome snapshots of this week's latest and greatest!

From the Forums: Design Philosophy
Each map and each forger is a little different. @Xandrith has opened up a forum to let forgers discuss what makes their maps tick. Join in on the discussion and share your own design rules and ideas and check out others! Link Here
From the Forums: What is Your Most Wanted OG Xbox Title
With the return of Original Xbox games on the Xbox One, @Preacher001 has one simple question for you. What original titles do you want to see on the Xbone?! With so many to choose from, the options are pretty wide. Some even get enhanced versions! Link Here
From the Forums: Smooth Linear Motion in Scripting
Anyone who has ever worked with scripted motion knows all too well that it is less than impressive. It is often glitchy, inconsistent and frustrating. @ExTerrestr1al has cracked the Da Vinci code of scripted movement. His new method can be used to produce buttery smooth movement and he has compiled a full tutorial on it's implementation. Check it out!
Alien Abduction by General PUG and ExtraSpicyMemes
We come in peace. Or not.... this cool infection based mini-game pits the players against aliens hell-bent on capturing and probing them. Don't take this lightly. These aliens are armed and dangerous and you're going to have to use everything in your possession to survive!
