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.

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

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 ..

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

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

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

It's quite easy to get outside to where the screen shots above were taken, even without cheating. When you reach the roof, take a hypo for full overpower just before jumping down onto the low roof behind the van; if you time it right and do a flip on the way down you'll hardly lose any health except the overpower. From there you can either go down onto one of the stairs behind the vehicle to finish the level (prematurely), or run along the wall out into the street to look around. It is also possible to get back in: Run around to the gate, hop onto the foot of the wall to the left and from there run and jump-flip onto the tallest vehicle. Then run and jump-flip over the wall to get back where you fought Barabas. Not a good idea though, if you've died after you entered building because the door will be locked and you'll be stuck.

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

Haha, wow. I haven't seen that before -- either jumping through the lab roof or through the wall (that one's especially embarrassing).  Taking that fall using a hypo was first documented by Gumby, I believe.

I wonder if we can use that flip to phase through other things in the game.

After jumping through the roof you can also jump to the building at the other side of the start area. Just hop down between the roof sections and run to the end of the "tongue" and jump-flip across. I'll make a video of that some time soon, I think.

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

In four more posts, I think you can post live URLs smile  This is interesting, thanks for sharing (though I think you mean to say "Konoko", not "Oni" ;-).  I'm surprised that the AIs run up to that barrier on the roof.  Perhaps the pathfinding grid tells them they are supposed to be able to get through there (since the devs didn't pay attention to this part of the level).  I'm curious, what did you do at 4:11 to get back to the roof?

Whaat, you guys didn't used to break out through the windows at the beginning of the state building and try to steal a mercury bow?  If I'm remembering that right...


If we don't change the direction we're going, we'll likely end up where we're headed.
