NOTE: This is assuming that there won’t be a terrain editor incorporated into Forge, like what Far Cry 2 has.
It’s a common sentiment that I saw in the Bnet Reach forums that maps like Sandbox and Foundry should be brought back instead of maps like Forge World. Basically, maps that are entirely blank instead of maps with natural, built-in scenery.
I disagree with this simply because maps like Forge World can accomplish what maps like Sandbox and Foundry did, and add to it in the process.
Think about it. With maps like Forge World, you can have a flat, basic map like what Sandbox and Foundry started you off with. But say that you want to play around with natural scenery like mountains, cliffs, water, and trees. Blank maps like Sandbox and Foundry can’t give you any of that, but maps like Forge World, that have natural built-in scenery, can.
So basically, I think that we don’t need a remake of Sandbox or Foundry or any other blank map. Maps that have natural scenery already placed will do just fine. We need maps like Forge World and Tempest, not Sandbox and Foundry.
