The name of this map is Clearcut, in the strange naming tradition of Halo maps. The name is derived from the fact that it is located in woodlands. Since the actual map is too large too upload, I took pictures within the model then put them into here as "paintings". The window has a cool 3D effect, so download it and look at the pictures of the map. If you do, you can get a good idea of what the actual map is. (I hope.) YOU SHOULD DOWNLOAD THIS BEFORE RATING!!! The trees were by Google, the Bases were from an extracted model, the pylons in the distance are by Commander 00M9, the logging equipment was made by Best-Lemming (The claw one, a.k.a. "Scrap Yard Claw Killer") and the one with treads was made by aren. (The "forwarder".) The inspiration for the map goes to BTM's Mountain Bike trail and the total lack of forested maps in Halo 2.
It is really an interesting map. It is one of my favorite models that I made.
UPDATE: Birdman, did you mean the map should have a UNSC look to it? If you look carefully, the bases and platform appear to be Forerunner, while there is Human logging equipment. The pylons also are Covenant in the model that they originated in.
Analyzing that, this COULD be somewhere in Africa (Considering climatic diversity there and the Covenant structure.) or, it could be in a temperate climate, like in Canada or the Northern U.S. #art #art_gallery #Clearcut #equipment #forest #gallery #Halo #Halo_2 #Halo_3 #Logging #map #multiplayer #outdoors #photo #photo_gallery #trail
