    A picture of the last of the mythic maps was released today. It is the map sandbox found here . [​IMG]
    In my oppinion it looks like a bad sandtrap copy and I dont like it unless it has amazing forge capabilitys. Here is the link to bungie where the map is unlong with other mythic map pack pictures. [Click here to view the link]

    It is likely that most if not all of those items are forgable. (Just a guess from the descriptions they have given) And the name of the picture is Halo3_Mythic-SANDBOX_Environment-01.jpg does this mean there are different environments instead of sand?

    And also, look closely. It seems that most if not all of the pieces can be moved.

    Someone took too much time analyzing that picture.

    Very nice. Ive been waiting for a pic. I also have to say it looks like the whole map has been forged, you can see the cracks where peices fit together. I hope this particular layout doesnt make the final cut cause its just WAY too open.

    They confirmed in the bungie weekly update today that it is a forge editing map unlike any other. So i think it will be better then foundry.

    That screenshot is only showing one section of the map.

    This one section is stupid and looks like another sandtrap so lets hope the rest of it looks better.

    I'd hate to base all of ones opinion on one screenshot, but the picture itself doesn't look very promising..

    I'd like to see a new forge pallet to Foundry though.

    I agree. Unfortunately, like they said when the first map pack came out, They cant update, add or change anything on the Forge pallet for previous maps (this now includes Foundry). As for everyone else saying the Map doesnt look too good, I also agree.... But If it were to have been skinned differently (not just a Copy of the Bitmaps from Sandtrap) I bet no-one would be complaining.:thumbup:

    Exactly what I think. Ever since I heard the being called sandbox, I thought that it better not be anything like sandtrap and look what they give us. It just seems exactly like sandtrap except smaller. Its terrible and I wont buy the mythic maps unless the map editor is REALY good. All the maps in my oppinion are to generic and boring looking. I would rather have remakes of halo 2 maps like sanctuary, midship, ivory tower, ascension, and others.

    Yeah more remakes would be cool, but it's always good to have verity.
