Halo Infinite launched some time ago, and when it did come out, it wasn’t exactly complete. By that, we mean that many of the standard modes to the franchise weren’t available at launch. One was Co-Op, which players will finally get in November, and the other was Forge Mode, which will also arrive in November. The latter is arguably more important because Forge Mode allows players to use a variety of tools and skills to create their own Halo maps. Ones that they could use and share with other players to have unique experiences. While the mode isn’t public now, some people have gotten access to it and made some striking things.
Enter Red Nomster, a famous Forge creator and someone who had a lot of time on his hands recently. We say that because he decided to go into the Halo Infinite Forge Mode and make a near-perfect recreation of Andy’s Room from Toy Story. Now, you might think that by near-perfect recreation we mean that he got the gist of the room but couldn’t implement details due to the limitations of the mode. But you’d be wrong in suspecting that.
Because in a 30-minute video that he posted, Red Nomster showed off the impressive feat he accomplished, and it’s a wonder how he got everything in it with such attention to detail. One of the things he notes immediately is that the new Forge Mode has a scaling feature that’ll allow you to upscale or downscale items to help you obtain a certain look. In the case of Andy’s room, he upscaled everything so that your character would look about the size of an action figure.
He was even able to include key details and characters from Toy Story to make the room feel more accurate. You’ll see Mr. Potato Head, Slinky, the Hot Wheels Track that Buzz Lightyear used in the first movie, and more. Yes, there are bases for you all to use for various modes, but the main fun here is exploring the room and picturing that you’re in the movie.
He even added some personal touches and put on the wall a custom poster featuring Master Chief and having the language of the universe spell out, “Best Friends”.
For those who want to dive into Forge Mode at their earliest convenience, we highly recommend you watch this video from Red Nomster. Because not only will the video inspire you to go big or small with your designs, but he gives some level design tips for Forge Mode that you might find helpful.
We must admit, this will be a high bar to try and get over. But don’t let that dissuade you from going nuts!
