Welcome to the One Stop Shop
This week we kick off the Weekly ForgeHub Community Update, a multi-faceted article aimed at keeping you up to date on the latest and greatest from the Forge community. You can expect to find a variety of content here ranging from detailed summaries in changes to forge, to the latest in cool community content and even to the newest from the Forge community on Youtube!
The ForgeHub Extermination Contest is nearing the end of its first round of judging. The community submitted nearly eighty maps overall to the contest and the judges have had their hands full evaluating them all! The judging panel has acknowledged that round one has proven to be a time consuming task but as the contest moves into round two, you can expect to see things accelerate greatly!
Want to see where your map stands? Voting standing and feedback from tests can all be found on the official Trello board for the contest here.
Everyday more and more awesome content gets created and it’s amazing what the community can do! Let’s take some time to highlight some of the latest and greatest from the past week.
King’s Court by Fred lllll
Remember the ye ol’ days of kings, knights, dragons and jousting? Fred lllll does in his new game mode, Rampant coupled with the map King’s Court. In this awesome vehicle based custom game, players use modified mongooses to joust with up to 7 other players in a circular medieval arena. Each goose has a special jousting rod on it, which when contacted with other players either results in one epic explosion or one gnarly impalement.
Spartan Run by unsorted guy
You’re too slow! Ever wanted to create a mix between Sonic the Hedgehog and Halo? Unsorted guy delivers just that in his new mode and map tandem, Spartan Run. unsorted has made use of the extended mobility options in Halo 5 coupled with superb forging to create an on-foot race custom game that looks and feels like it’s straight out of the latest Sonic title. Wanna run on the smooth banks and fly over the amazing jumps in Spartan Run, give it a try!
Geometry Goat is a community member looking to grow his Youtube channel by offering something a little unique. As compared to doing traditional map features, he does map walkthroughs. These walkthroughs are thorough explorations of the map done in first person. This offers viewers a chance to see the map for what it is without any flashy cinematography added to it. Consider checking his channel out!
