What are ya'lls thoughts on this decision?

I'm surprised they didn't have an area like this in the Forge map offerings they initially released. I thought their "Baby's first Forge map", "Intermediate" and "Advanced" setups made sense... but Impact's actual flat space was so small it weakened its use for pros. This seems much more up people's ally and basically addresses one of the biggest issues people had with Forge (followed by texture/palette swaps, which I assume is impossible on the current gen, and hills, I guess.)

I'm glad it's free, because otherwise it would have been essentially useless except for customs.... Tempest was a pretty good Forge map from what I recall, but it's not like you could make maps on it that could appear in matchmaking.

I wonder if they're going to force people to download it like a TU though.

IS this actually up yet? I booted my xbox to check it out, and the main feature on the home screen is a gods damned picture of Edward and Bella looking hungry and wooden respectively, captioned 'Forever is only the beginning'.

Ugh.

Apparently it's out early. And it has trees. Hype.

I made a tower of 40 trees, then put a platform with a camping stool and sniper rifle on top. I don't see what else there is to do really. It's the pinnacle of Forging. Everyone else should just stop forging. If they don't, then I shall snipe them from my heavenly position in the clouds.

But seriously though, it's very, very cool. A few nice surprises in the inventory too. I may have slightly freaked out when I saw that there was trees.

Honestly, trees might be the single thing that gets me back into forging if I can ever find the time for it. With that in the inventory, I can literally make every map I've been dreaming of making since Halo 2.

My biggest disappointment with Forge World is that they put kill boundaries in the forested areas on top of the canyons. Yay trees and rocks! The green screen item is also a huge win for machinina makers.

I've been hating 343 for a while now, but with some of these new TUs, and now an amazing forge map.... I'm really starting to like this.
