I really hope this thread survives, because if it doesn’t than many more good idea’s will be tossed around in others and forgotten.
Anyway first I would like a map maker, not a map editor. You start off with an island and you can creat land, make more water and etc.This is what Far Cry uses and it is by far the most fun “map anything” that I have ever used. It would also get rid of the bland maps on Forge World.
If we cant have the above I would at least like to change the environment of certain area’s, but you can have multiple environments on one map, not just one. Like I can have FW (Forge Worlds) island be grassy like it is, the FW canyon be all deasert like, and have Alaska finally have the snow its needed, but all on one map.
I like the gravity idea. Have it work like a kill boundry, and it would be amazing.
Have the option to swim in water, also make it more clear like in Crysis 2, water in that game is awesome. Also have the water be very deep so you can forge stuff in it, and if you make a building and close off the inside, the water empties out and you have a room without water in it (would be cool for under water bases and such).
Elephant . . . nuff said
Missiles . . . and missile launchers (missiles like the ones you would see in the PIT on H3, not like Rocket Launcher Rockets).
“Dig option” so even if you can’t make the land like you can in Far Cry than at least let us be able to make holes in the ground, like trenches and fox holes, tunnels etc. This could be added to how you want something placed, like if I’m trying to make a building but I don’t want grass peaking out of the floor, have the options: “Normal, Fixed, Phased, and Dig”. Dig would cut into the environment, and that would be very useful.
Objects that can move in a designated path that you assign. You take the object and there should be an option along the lines of: Movement, and it gives you a dot, you take that dot to where you want the object to move, but you can set multiple dots, so the object moves around.
Dead bodies. Marines, covenant, spartans (whose armor is either set to yours, one of your friends, or randomly assigned armor). You can control how the body sits when you set it down, there should be 10 different premade scinario’s of how the dead soldier should look dead and how he is posed, if that fails you can do it manually.
BLOOD: Able to set blood on walls, floors, mountains etc. Make blood come in many different colors: Red, blue, purple, green, pink (jk). Still, it would be awesome if I could make a map where its supposed to look like a destroyed battlefield and there are dead bodies, and blood everywhere.
Ability to make any object destructable. I can take a 5x5 Flat wall and make it destructable by a damage amount of 1-10 depending on how hard it should be to destroy it. This isn’t too important to me though.
Currently those are all the ideas I can think of.
