So I had this great idea come to me… what if invasion was built on Condemned??? The flavor is already there, massive ship battle taking place in space, covenant blood splatter all over the actual station for the play space, I figured why not make this into something that feels almost campaign like with an actual setting and flavor unlike what most forged invasion maps can offer.
I get to work deleting all the items, finish that, then figure out how I want the flow to go. I get the plan ready, then start looking for the correct pieces to use that would be perfect. Well first I notice that the forge palette is sad and pathetic… but I figured ok I can use the Uplink variant and just use some of these basic objects to define the area. I finish that, then go to set the first objective…
I found out that the game type label is restricted to only no label. It can not be changed… at all. Which means no invasion can possibly be built in the new maps without some type of patch or update to these maps.
I checked Highlands as well to see if the same problem was there, and sure enough it was. That much anticipated Invasion concept on Highlands that everyone wants to see? Not going to happen without a fix to the maps. I posted a similar topic on the b.net, but someone said that Bungie had no control over updates or fixes to these maps so I felt it appropriate to post it here as well and hope that someone who can do something about it can take notice of this issue and fix it soon.
The maps are pretty good I do admit, but forge was sort of left out of the loop on this one sadly.
