Forerunner Island by DarklordIIID Forerunner Island by DarklordIIID
Been awhile since I did anything like this. It probably gets repetitive, but I canít help myself, I adore forerunner architecture. I have another in the worlds, incorporating more of the new elements and styles introduced in Halo 4.

Anyway, herre we have a collection of previously used Forerunner assets I have on hand, collected together into one picture. That tower in the back left, I donít even know how many times Iíve used it. Hehe.

Enjoy, and thanks for looking as always.

Awesome, what software did you use to make this?

3ds max for creating the assets, which were then imported into Vue where I built the terrain and such and did the render. :)

Absolutely amazing work. I also admire Forerunner architecture. The quality of the textures, water and reflections are incredible.

The only thing I can criticise about this piece is that it is too bright.

Yeah, lighting in Vue is still largely a mystery to me.  Once I'm done with school I'm going to dedicate more time to learning it properly.

From what I have seen of your work, it certainly wont take you long to learn. Keep up the great work.

ho-ly-shit o.O Although the image looks a bit unsharp (probably because of my crappy monitor) this is amazing! Have you ever considered animating these things? Like a fly-by of an installation or shield-world? Would love to see that also. :D

I've got lots of ideas for animations, but I need to build a rendering server first. :) Can't afford to tie up my main rig for long enough to render one.

Amazing job once again DL.
The lighting, textures and reflections are superb.
I must agree the new styles for the Forerunners in Halo 4 are amazing. <3

Please keep up the great work.

Looks like a pretty fun place to ruin Red Team's day. But I'm always on Red team...

I love the SAW! That and the Incinerator Cannon are my favorite new guns.

Hell to the yeah. Incinerator cannon takes some learning though, because the projectiles move so slow.

It's a lot of fun to just blast a guy into nothing though. My brother loves the binary rifle when he plays. That thing is powerful!
