It's outside the play boundries, just because when getting close to it ships don't react very well even though it has no collision map.

I think you're mixing up Halo Starside Intercept and Halo Homefront. We have no plans on making in-atmosphere battles.

How about a map that takes place in the center of the ring, with the ring beyond the boundaries? I think that will be kinda awesome.

That's originally how the map was set up, was that it was in the middle of the ring or at least somewhat close to the ring. The only problem is that I textured the outside for a reason. And I just think seeing the full ring rather than just a small part just looks better from a battle's perspective.

Concur, but I still think that it would be awesome to fight in the center of the ring, just so you can get a feeling of the size of the thing. I like maps that make me feel small.

I wonder though, what would a map featuring the Ark would be like, considering that the Ark created the Ring Worlds.

Seeing as how Threshold is over 200,000km, and barely fits in the actualy game's parameters, I doubt we'll have an Ark map. :P

I could set-up two Halo maps, one that's in the center for just adversarial, and one the way it is now for Firefight. I'll toy around with it.
