So Many Options
Hello again ForgeHub! This week has been stellar in terms of the variety of maps being submitted to the site. 4v4, BTB, race, puzzle, minigame, aesthetics the list goes on! In this weeks edition I wanted to highlight just a few of the awesome creations that landed on the site this week. What's more we've got some awesome Halo news as well as a renewed Community faves system. Let's go!
Let Your Voice Be Heard
After round after round of feedback, we are proud to announce that the Community Favorites vote has been reinvented! That's right, we are listening! All jokes aside though, the ForgeHub teams hopes that this new system will both improve general approval of the Community Faves vote and increase member participation.
Ascend, shut up! Tell us what's new!
Alright alright. In the new Community Favorites System, maps are nominated by Forge Critics and Staff. This way, the Community directly has the ability to voice their opinions of what they feel is worthy of the title favorite. What's more, all nominations are filtered by the staff so that maps that attempts to misuse or abuse this new system can be identified and dealt with before it is too late. From there, it comes down to a vote just like the good ol' days. The current Community Favorites vote is live right now! Be sure to check it out and voice your opinion!
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.

Lockout by TimeDipper and D4rkDeath
Another one of Halo's most memorable and loved classic maps returns to us in the firey hot form of Lockout by @TimeDipper and @D4rkDeath . This stellar reimagining of the Halo classic places players deep in the heart of a volcanic setting surrounded by brilliant orange lava and burning embers. With an awesome blend of familiar gameplay and killer piece usage, this map is a must-play.
Echo Canyon by Arpod
Fire up those engines. It's time to race. But this isn't your daddy's mongoose race. No sir, Echo Canyon by @Arpod will take you windy mountains, over lava rivers, down fluid curves and even underwater through the wreckage of a pirate ship! Don't get too distracted though, you've still got a race to win Spartan!
Pagoda by thrillerkillers
Lower your voice and show some respect. This is a shrine built by @thrillerkillers and your AR fire is disturbing the peace. Inspired by traditional Japanese design, Pagoda offers players a calming spot to sit back, relax and ponder the mysteries of why there is no ForgeHub weapon skin yet.
Pokemon Odyssey by The Halo Forge Team
Scripting is a way of life for some and a foreign language to others. Regardless of what side of the tracks you walk on, you're sure to be blown away by this stellar custom game. This revolutionary mode brings the world of Pokemon directly to Halo 5. Players can catch, train and battle their very own Pokemon in an attempts to be the #1 Pokemon master, who is also a Spartan! Check out their map post to learn more.
