Go Here to see the FH description of this map. Overview:So, after much deliberating, brooding, and slaving away, I'm releasing Elation. This map works for all gametypes, but it's heart and soul is in symmetrical objective games. The Bungie defaults should be sufficient, but feel free to play with whatever settings you want. It's a sort of horseshoe shaped map which allows for teamwork, high-ground control, vehicular combat, pseudo-acrobatic maneuvers, and just plain fun. This is certainly my best competitive map to date. I've enjoyed a lot of games on it so far, and I hope you folks will as well.Screenshots and further description:BruteHere's a shot of the action area of the map. The double box we're floating above is open and contains an active camo powerup. The weapon holders on the left and right hold a brute shot and a bubble shield, respectively. The upright barriers form a lane for fast (but dangerous) mongoose travel. The ramps lead up to the top level, where you'll find some power weapons.BaseHere's a picture of the bases you'll be working from. The bomb plant point and flag spawn points are in the open area between the two boxes, while the bomb spawn is up top and the flag return is within the open box. Don't worry about spawn camping. I promise the spawning system works. Your team has access to 2 plasma rifles, 2 smg's, a magnum, a plasma pistol, a turret, and a mauler with which to hold off attackers. There's also a sniper not far away. The teleporter in the corner of each base leads straight into the action area. Or, you can grab a mongoose and burn it over to your opponents.ChuteOnce you leave your base, you'll be heading through this area. There are a few BR's scattered about and a couple spikers for those of you who forgot your gun at the base. The fence box in the top left houses a ghost if you can get to it. And the little tunnel you see in the distance has a firebomb and a shotgun available for anyone who takes the time to crouch. A grav-lift at the end of the little passageway will take you to the top of the corner structure. You can also enter the tunnel quickly with a mongoose.GarageThis is the same area from a different angle. You'll note the mongoose in its little garage. Also, it is possible to grenade jump up to the center of the map, but it's only worth it occasionally.CoilWhen you come around the corner leading out of the chute, watch out above you, or you might eat a fusion coil from above. Both the spool-stack and forklift are destructible cover, so watch out if you're a hider. The column in the center of the picture here is 'the shedding tower' Explosions will send pallets flying, making it tougher to navigate on a 'goose. Also, you can use the pallets to jump into the elevated ghost garage if you're creative.ElevatorLooking right into the ground-floor hole from the previous shot, we see the elevator foyer. There's a regenerator and firebomb in the sunken box, and a hammer-spawn in the center. The elevators in the back of the shot are operated by standing on a crate and throwing a grav-lift at your feet. It's a fast (and sneaky) way to get to the rockets up top, or just away from your attackers.JumpsYou can also use the sunken box to jump up to the top floor or get to the ghost garage. It just takes a little acrobatic skill.GhostsVoila the ghost garage and launch-ramp. Pretty self explanatory. The ghosts are a fairly powerful weapon once you get them out on the ground floor. A skilled driver can even get the ghost up to the top floor.TeleporterHere's the exit from the base-teleporters. It's got just enough cover that you don't get murdered immediately. You should probably not chase a flag-carrier through the teleporter if you can avoid it... Use a 'goose instead.FlagsNever let a 1 on 1 like this happen. Back up your friends.Top to backHere's an overview of the top level. The weapon holder behind the blue guy spawns the rocket launcher and there's a power-drainer up here for some extra base-breaking ability.Top To elevatorHere's the top from another view. Not much to say here. You can see where the elevators lead off in the back.Winner!And finally, here's a picture of me scoring the game-winning, near-triple kill on Sargent Sarcasm using my patented grav-lift-face-smash technique.Again, please enjoy the map. Thanks to all my testers. Your suggestions were great. And special thanks to Neverless Wonder, for all his help.[Edited on 04.20.2008 11:15 PM PDT]
this looks good and you actually put effort into posting im downloading
Apparently I'm part of the Forum Police. Psh.
Looks amazing, I qeued the map, saved the thread. I'll play around on it, I'll tell you if it's worth it. From what the screenshots show, it looks friggin awesome.
This is your baby? It's phat! Childhood obesity at its worst.Seriously though, I've played this map and it's a lot of fun.

This is such a great map and I'm very jealous of your superior, lightning-quick Forging ability.
