I mean, I could definitely be wrong too. I noyl know for certain that Rat Race was built by Hardy LeBel, and Halo Nation tells me Hang 'Em High is by Peter Marks but without a citation. With that said, Ascension seems to have at least contributions from Chris Carney and Steve Cotton. So, maybe not one man jobs, but I wouldn't expect there to have been many people designing one map considering there are quite a few maps in the original games, but not so many map designers.Sunsdune wrote:I thought I had seen a Vidoc (Probably from Halo 4 about the Lock out successor , sorry I can't remember the name, might have even been Reach) where the designer ,which was the same designer as Lockout ; make a statement about it (Lock out) being one of the few 1 or 2 man jobs. Entirely possible I miss heard or am just mistaken. Sorry for the misinformation.tsassi wrote:I'm pretty sure in at least Halo CE and 2 most multiplayer maps are one man jobs. Based on the game credits, the number of people who could've participated designs of maps seems to be around 2-5 throughout the original trilogy. Reach is kind of unclear, but for Halo 4 and 5 the respective teams appear to be much larger with 10+ people, though it's still possible that the basic designs come individuals, and the extra artists are there just to deal with the more complex art of modern games.Sunsdune wrote:I don't think any of the games have had a single map designer. All of the maps are made by different developers and tweaked and polished by still others. Lots of hands go in to a finalized map (well most of them any way). There are a couple of examples (Lockout for one) that only had one or two main developers.CruX M85 wrote:The reason why I wanted old maps in Halo5 is cause all of them are bad (well collosseum is fine).
I would be very pleased with good maps no matter what it takes. I don't know who created the multiplayer maps in the first Halos but he should come back or help 343i out.
More symmetric maps and less "details" to get stuck on while walking.
I really like Plazas design though
