So I was screwing around with the jetpack cheat today...

...and it surprises me how big the maps are in comparison to the tiny confined spaces you're forced to progress through, especially on the Vago Biotech and TCTF HQ missions. There's a couple of tunnels in the back of the Biotech level that you never see in cutscenes, and they're fully textured. Bungie made such a detailed map, and only used like 15% of it. Maybe it was planned as some sort f overworld at one point? Or is it just there for excessive detail?

What do you mean by "overworld"?

Like New Mombasa in Halo ODST?

Also, please give us screenshots.

I'd say excessive detail. Halo is the same way.

Re: So I was screwing around with the jetpack cheat today...

Based on some comments by the devs, I think it was a little from Column A, a little from Column B.  Column A is Bungie not being sure exactly where they would lead the player, and trying different level paths.  For instance, Airport had a whole segment cut out of it after they had made it, but if they had left that content in, and simply not allowed the player to go there, you would see the same unused space that you're apparently seeing in Vago.  Column B is that apparently the modelers went above and beyond the call of duty and made overly-detailed levels.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Isn't that where Muro escapes?

I believe that's the part from which you ride your motorcycle into the main area where you fight Barabas.

I came to the same conclusion some weeks ago. The maps are really huge, I remember using the god mode cheat and jumping off the TCTF building to explore the area just for fun years ago. Maybe some people here could use the maps, maybe add some stuff and create different paths and make some levels new?

mm yeah i saw that when i first got the anniversary couple of years ago .. you should also see outside the regional state building .. there are a lot of snipers and black ops outside with weapons as if they meant for konoko to go outside before ..

Actually, it was the opposite, Bungie *didn't* want you to go there.  It was an attempt to avoid using the dreaded "invisible walls". (source)

When I first bought the game and reached level 3 I thought you would control Konoko's motorcycle and explore the city in a later level, especially considering the size of some of the maps. Alas that level never came.

Well for the TCTF regional HQ, I went outside anyways, to get weapons and ammos. With good control, you can get a lot of stuff smile
