Less fancy items, and more scenic items.

In Halo: Reach’s forge, there are way too many items for building, and far too few for setting the mood for a map. On Halo 3, with barrels, pallets, cones, and all of the other movable scenic objects, maps had character. With Reach, all of the maps are lifeless, dull, and plain.

With more scenic items, such as dead bodies, scrap parts, and anything else 343i could design, the maps in Halo 4’s forge could be far more exciting, and beautifully designed for Machinima.

Have you ever played a map where people die extremely fast after each other? If so, you would have knew that a lot of dead bodies make the game lag, that’s the reason why the despawn after a certain time.
So forging with dead bodies would make the game lag, but scrap parts seem like a good idea.

But wouldn’t the dead body objects function like any other normal object in Forge, like a crate or a sandbag?

Yes. The only reason they make dead bodies disappear is this; the map would be filled with bodies strewn everywhere at the end of a match if they never disappeared, and that’s what would cause the framerate to drop. Just think, BTB Slayer, with a close game there would be nearly 200 bodies strewn throughout the map. There is nothing about bodies that kill the framerate more than anything else.

So just like everything else in forge, dead bodies would have a maximum amount to put on your map.
