Basically, I just want to hear what everyone else wants out of Forge, as well as get some of my own ideas out there and hope that this forum can be of help to make Forge even better for everyone (which 343 is doing an amazing job with, keep it up guys!)
Just fire off anything you would like no matter how impossible it may seem, maybe someone will address our requests
- Terrain Editting.
- Edit object hierarchy (edit things such as vehicle weapons.)
Example. Say that you spawn a Warthog and you want something other than the chaingun and you want to replace it with something like a Fuel Rod Cannon; or even change what you are shooting out of the gun mounted, like a Gauss Cannon that shot out exploding shotgun shells (You could have an option for exploding ammo.)
- Object Spawning with spawning options.
Example. You could spawn a warthog in a location and set it up to drive into the wall whenever it spawned, set up how fast you want it to go and if its indestructable or has low health. If you had a trigger option you could set it up to go off whenever a player walked over it, and you could set it up to go off every time or at random times.
- Forge Matchmaking Server
Example. Basically its a spin off of regular matchmaking but tailored to finished and functioning player created maps. Could be set up in a way that you host and join individual rooms.
- Triggers and Consequences (A way to get certain events to activate.
- Spawn Waves (Think firefight.)
- Customizable Particles (Set up an animation for fire, hail, storms, tornado, comet, meteor, weapon effects, lightning striking the ground, lava, insert more animations to this endless list here.)
I realize that to implement most of these ideas immediately within Halo 4 would be seemingly impossible. Howver, I thought that it would be nice to hear about if we could ever expect anything like this in a future version of Forge. Or even a computer program version of Forge with more flexible options.
If I’m missing anything here I would love to hear from other members in the community ^^
