Halo reach forge is phenominal. It is a huge step up from 1.0, and Forge world is a huge step up from sandbox and foundry. The only issue i have is that forge world is Soooooo huge and detailed, that it limits your forging ability. i also believe the forge objects are a bit to detailed also. Please 343, just give us a small unique forge space, similar to the look of forgeworld, just smaller, and alot flatter. its no fun forging on a bunch of hills and rocks, when i just want flat grass… Just keep the new forge area and forge pieces less detailed, and simple. Alot of people like to forge their own structures and buildings and whatnot, but its not easy with forge 2.0 because you get insane framerate lag. Also please fix object overlap lag, because you get framerate issues just by overlapping a few blocks… Dont go overboard and make a forge galaxy… most people i know would much rather have a map around the size of Blood Gulch, or valhalla, just with new dynamic shapes and rocky outcrops. Sure, i ginormous halo galaxy with 5000 budget would be kinda cool, but i would love to have a flat canvas and build a massive structure with over 25,000 budget. That would be alot cooler.
I have high hopes for Forge in halo 4, but if 343 wants to appeases the masses, then simple objects and maps are the way to go. But at the same time, you need to appease the advanced veteran forgers with useful tools, and a whole new coordinate/rotation system. Just imagine, matchmaking could be updated, with a seemingly endless variety of forge maps. On a final note, please for the love of god give us a larger pallette of objects to choose from. Atleast double or triple the amount of objects from forge 2.0, so all the maps dont look the same. Variety is the way to go, you’d be surprised. 343 needs to save forge. Forge is the heart of halo now, and if 343 wants an awesome game, then they need an awesome forge. i wish 343 the best of luck, but they definitley need to listen to the community. The community is what makes Halo.
