COMMENT AT THE BOTTOM FOR HALP. Please at least read the format instructions.
Leave a comment here and I'll get back to you.
Be as explicit as possible, no comments left at, "I made a map and I keep spawning in the wrong places," as it would prove that you didn't even look at the spawning section.
Make mention of all items in your map related to the issue, i.e. if you are having an issue with spawning, list information on spawn points, respawn points, safe and kill areas, and zones INCLUDING what teams they are set to and if you have tagged them AS WELL AS Hill Markers tagged for spawn functions. This basic idea applies to ALL situations, like objectives, spawning items, and anything else you can think of.
Let me know if you see something that you've figured out and I haven't answered, it'll save me time. I might paraphrase it, but I'll give you credit via listing your gamer tag.
Let me know if you've discovered a simpler or easier, or even alternative, way of doing something. The latter only if it has a different effect that could be used to change the situation.
Be worried if you think someone might have already asked and you can't find the question or answer, I'll simply show you to it.
Complain that Forge is broken because something refuses to work (such as having kill zones spawn in during a game rather than at the start in game types other than Invasion).
Be an ass. Seriously, that's my job. Because I love you. Or something like that.
Flame my titling, typing some of the more mundane stuff is boring, so I get to have fun.
So yeah, that's about it.
MapName And/Or Gametype
Game Type Settings (if changed from normal)
Issue (A LIST if more than one, options include: spawning, objectives, tagging, teams, game type, tools, items, general map building)
Related objects placed on map with information on tag and such (list as much as you can from item options and advanced menus) separated by issue.
Example: (actually happened)
The Bladed Isle, Invasion
A building not spawning during the game, my core will spawn, but I have nowhere to drop it.
I have a building not spawning during my game, it's rather important as the bomb plant point is on the second floor suspended in midair without it. I have changed the settings on accident thinking I had something else selected, but I put them back to default and nothing changed.
I placed a capture plate, set the tag to inv_objective and the spawn order to 3 with it set to the attacking team, blue for elites, but I can't score the core!
Delete the building and then replace it. (worked very well)
Set the shape to either cylinder or box and make sure it has an area. (that was a big dur da dur moment for me, it had been a long day)
If you follow this, you will not only receive precedence, but you will get a better and faster answer period.
Lazy people post vague questions that must be answered by more questions, usually more than once, to make it so that the person helping them even understands/confirms what is wrong, much less think about a fix. This takes ALOT longer than just asking correctly. This isn't Radioshack or BestBuy, you have no excuse for not knowing enough to fill the above form out, everything is spelled for you and listed with easy access to it.
Thanks for understanding and be good; I'm here to help, I just can't do that if you wont help yourself at the same time.
When a player dies, how do I make sure they re-spawn at the re-spawn point closest to their most recent checkpoint, and not at one near the begging or end of the track?
I use territories for the points(team rally unavailable), but it only lasts for 4 rounds instead of 8? the second thing is that spawning the red player to be running man in round 1, then to be a sentry guy on round 2, etc. doesn't work! I set spawn orders correctly (order 1 means round 1 right?) and the spawning is random! please help me, because I can play it but i have to use teleporters at the start, on a 30 sec. spawn. and for 4 rounds only. forge = broken?
p.s. I also get a gamertag not allowed to upload map, type message when I try to upload map.So don't expect to see it until bungie sort it out(Death Orb isn't offensive}
I know that when you use the Race game type, and die, you are supposed to spawn at the last checkpoint you made it to. But that's only if you don't place any respawn points. You only need initial spawns, set to the race spawn tag, at the start of the "track."
You have your "track", where the runner has to travel across, with an initial spawn point at the beginning and up to five territories along its way. Then you will end up having to have 3 other areas, all separate (so as to not allow the other players to kill each other) or with them spawning on a custom power-up that makes them invulnerable for the full 90 seconds possible, linked to the "shooting ranges," where they will be assaulting the runner, either by walkable path or teleporter. Don't place any respawn points, Just initial spawns, and leave them neutral (only place 4). It should alternate randomly, which was just fine for similar competitor/spectator game types in Halo 3. You should be using Territories adjusted to 8 rounds in the general settings. I just spent an hour experimenting with using anti respawns and initial spawns set to spawn orders for rounds and got no results.
Spawn orders for respawn points and initial spawns are, save for when referring to Invasion, one of the very few things I do not fully understand as of yet.
In terms of your gamer tag, someone could easily find it offensive, however, I do agree that it is not, especially in the way you are most likely using it to refer to something humorous. However, the word death is in the system as a red flag, much like other words that I'm sure you would agree should not be displayed in public situations but, like me, really don't have a problem with yourself. Because of this, it doesn't want the map showing up with your GT in the description. Sometimes, these stupid things happen; I just tried uploading a pic titled "Put an end to Spawn Camping," and it told e that it was inappropriate. I had to change the name to, "Spawn camping will be punished," which I would consider much more likely to be seen as inappropriate.
KOTH (Crazy King variant called PARK with random 1 minute hills and random starting weapons)
Only 1 of the hills on the map ever appears in the game. All the other hills have the same object details but the hill just “moves” to the same hill over and over. All hills are set as game specific to KOTH_Hill.
I had the same problem on another map in which only three of eight hills would ever actually appear in the game.
What I would say to do is open up a blank Forge World, and in the Coliseum, place a few hill markers, floating just above the ground (for safe measure), and set them to KotH_Hill, without changing anything else. Then test it. It would be a good idea to have the hills lined up left to right for this next part: set the spawn orders sequentially from 0-n (n being how many hills you have minus 1, I apologize for the calculus reference). And test it. Remember which one is which and see which ones don't spawn. Use 5 second or-so hills to make it faster,
Use those basic settings on you map if they worked (having all 0's or being sequential for spawn order and if the 0 in the second one didn't spawn, start at 1).
If it didn't work, this is most likely because you had the same issue as me with my building in my invasion map, which refused to spawn until game over. Delete them and replace them.
Now, I know what you're thinking, why not try that first? This is because I thought of it second and am very groggy. Do that first if you read the whole thing before starting. If that does not work, then try the experiment above.
