I’m quite the perfectionist, so when I’m recreating something in Forge I have to get it exact. This is why I set out to determine the exact measurements of the Forge blocks. I’m not sure if someone has done this before me, but if someone has then hopefully I can bring something new to the table anyway.
First I got out my “Halo: The Essential Visual Guide” book, to make sure that I had the correct measurements for all the vehicles that we have access to in Forge. I started out by placing a Mongoose on a 1x1 Forge block, and found that the two are nearly the exact length, with the Mongoose, which is 3.2 meters long, barely longer. Then I saw that the Warthog is 3 meters wide exactly, so I placed that and found that the width of the Warthog is barely shorter than the length of a 1x1 block. From this I figured that a 1x1 Forge block is 3.1 meters long.
Unfortunately, everything is not an exact multiple of 3.1 length, height, and width wise, so I would have to figure out something more exact than that. Looking at the coordinate system I discovered that there are 10 coordinate points along the length of a 1x1 block, which the distance between each coordinate point 0.31 meters.
-1x1 block = 3.1 meters
-There are 10 coordinate points along the length of a 1x1 block
-Distance between coordinate points = 0.31 meters
From this it’s much easier to determine the exact length, width, and height of an object in Forge.
