Ideas for Halolympics 4

Hello fellow Halolympians!

I hope you all are having a good time running the third installment of the Honor Guard Halolympics, if you haven't received a confirmation message from me yet, no worries if you sent it I got it.

Now on to more important matters...

I will be accepting any and all ideas for the 4th installment of the HG Halolympics, the way I want this to work is fairly simple. If you have an idea..

1) Make it in Forge and save the map to your file share.

2) Send me a email to

3) Include a link to your map on your file share, and in the subject line put Halolympics 4 Idea

4) Put a brief description of how to run this part of the course

and that's pretty much it.

Now here are a few tips for giving your idea the best chance to come out on the next HG Halolympics.

1) Make it challenging but not too difficult (i.e. grenade jump to the column and then grenade jump to another column and then a back flip)

2) Try to explain how to do the obstacle in two sentences or less, in other words don't make the challenge sound complicated when it could be summed up somehow. (i.e. fall down the hole while shooting at the wall and landing on the teleporter, but before you do that make sure you shoot the fusion coil on the warthog but before that drive it to the fusion coil..yeah) a better way would be more along the lines of "shoot the fusion coil before falling into the teleporter"

3) It doesn't have to be the Mona Lisa, meaning that if it doesn't look like much, but it's challenging and fun, then send it in. It doesn't matter if it looks really well made and then turns out to not work.

4) Have fun while doing it, if you are having fun with it chances are other people will to, so my advice here is to just mess around and have fun with the Halo 3 forge engine you never know what you might come up with while just screwing around *cough* el bandito *cough*

Thanks for reading this and I hope this answers the questions of all those wanting to help out with the next HG Halolympics. If I decide to use part of your design I will credit you accordingly with the new course. Enjoy!
