"Greatly inspired by Halo 2's "Headlong", this urban environment leans players towards strategic gameplay. [6 FFA; 4v4 Team]"

I've had the idea of a Headlong remake in my head for quite a while, but was never sure how to go about making it due to Foundry's limits of both size and materials. I knew I could never make the entire map, and attempting such would have me building it to such a small scale that would be both unplayable and very messy. The obvious choice I had in mind was to build a section of it, the section most playable where most of the better game play took place, and in my opinion this was the waterfront side of the map, including the two bases connected by a teleporter and excluding the bridge and the moreover barren part of the map. Now before you exit this thread due to the map's main trait being removed, this was done to improve game play, meaning me building this map around this immense structure would leave many unhappy with the end result. Instead I chose to build around said bridge opening the map up very much yet still leaving enough cover, along with many exits and entryways. Though a two day speed forge, this map inspires unconventional game play whilst still retaining that competitive aspect in-game that Halo has been known to give us after a great win.

Setup for all game variants under Slayer, CTF, Assault and Territories.

Amazing- you clearly put more work into it than the average forger. I'll dl. I just hope the weapon placement and spawns are as percise as the map's structure- I've dl'ed maps that look great but had crappy weapon placement and spawns before. I'd like for yours to be an exception to that. GJ ^_^
