Kind of a noob question, but I've only ever played Halo with my bro-in-law some time way back. I only recently bought an Xbox One to play Halo (own a PS4 and bought Xbox One just for Halo's sake - that's how fun the game is XD ), anyway, so this means I'm completely new to the Halo AND Xbox communities - can someone tell me if there is a way to download custom maps/gametypes others have created? My fondest memories of Halo were playing "rocket race" and a game type whose name I don't remember ("sacrifice" maybe?), it was a free-for-all game in which players were slow and invulnerable. You start on a platform that had a lava pit in the center and vehicles scattered about on it and some powerups. The objective was to knock a player off the platform or force him/her into the lava pit (usually with use of vehicles). I remember the best vehicle to use on that map was a Brute Prowler and the best defense you had against vehicle was a deployable lift - since you couldn't move fast, you'd wait until the other guy driving at you to get close enough then deploy the lift, which would launch him and his vehicle over you and over the platform... ahh the memories!
Anyway, sorry for rambling on, the main question is obviously how to download custom maps/gametypes from other players. Is there a website you can go to? An app? And how do you specifically download it, down to the very basic steps.
Thanks in advance.
The current sharing system is really bad. The main way to get maps is from the in-game roster, but this requires you to have added the author and they must be online. The only way to get maps from someone offline is through the campaign leaderboards (still need to be friends and know where exactly to look. I have a lot of H2A content on my share (including Rocket Race), so you can try this with my share. Add me first, Campaign leaderboards, Campaign Scoring, Halo 3, Sierra 117, Heroic, Friends, Co-op, 17088.
Thanks for the reply, I'll go ahead and add you!
I just now realized that the forge in Halo 2 is out of this world in-depth and amazing, then I went to forge in Halo 3 (my favorite of the 4 - the custom games in H3 were by far my favorite) and realized it's not just NOT as amazing as H2, but is not even complete enough for me to forge in some basic things...
So here's my issue: I actually got a Rocket Race gametype saved and it works, but when I went into Sandtrap to play it, I realized all the checkpoints (goals) are on the inside - not where the original rocket race goals would have been, but when I went into forge to "move" those points, I could not do it. In the forge, there's a "goals" tab for you to pick from, but it is empty. I thought that maybe I need to forge in a specific game type to make the goals appear, but all that's available is "Forge" and no game types.
Can someone please help? How do I move checkpoints (goals) in Halo 3 forge? Is there even a way to do it currently, or is that something else 343i will need to work on? I've had a few friends over and we played rocket race with 4 people best we could and still had loads of fun, but it would be nice if we could move the checkpoints to where they are supposed to be (some in the mine fields, some in other areas, but mostly all on the outside, not all inside how they are now).
