I am not opposed to this. I believe we currently have very very few print-ready files in the armory. I wouldn't mind us working toward that goal, but someone would need to step up to champion it and round those files up, rename and organize them.

You mean something like this? Trouble is some of the files are hosted on other sites like thingiverse, but they are made by our members so maybe just a quick permision-to-host letter could be made.

I think it would be cool if there was a gallery where people could post up to a couple photos (like 1-2) of their deployed suits, and everyone could see them, rather than having to hunt down members name's and threads, or rummage through the Media tab. I think this would be a really cool way to put our deployed members work on display and further celebrate the accomplishments :)

On the same note, I think it would also be useful to have a set of reference images for the different tiers. For example, I'm currently deployed at tier 1, but I'm targeting tier 3 for my next deployment (and I will make it gosh darnnit). However, if I wanted to see a collection of T3 suits, idk how I would do it other than having a rough idea of who was probably deployed as T3 and looking them up by name.

There is the finished thread in the costumes and props section:

When you have a suit finished you can put it in there.

And the elite section (Which doesn't seem to be being updated for some reason..... ExCeLLuR8 should definitely be in there...

If your suit is epic and inspiring and all that jazz, Admin can move it into this section. At least they could have done... Not sure if it's being added to anymore.

Well then I stand corrected, thanks Sean Anwalt!

The second link hasn't been updated in two and a half years unfortunately.

I'd be down for getting a openly visible Deployed member catalog using several of their favourite photos of their suit. Maybe something similar to the HOD appearance teasers so that they're uniform sizes.

Thanks Sean Anwalt I really appreciate it!! Once my Halo 3 suit is 100% done I'd be down for reviving life back to the elite thread!

I like the idea of a completed armor "showcase" tab where it's just pictures of everyone's armor tagged to the owner, similar to the armory tab. No threads or pages of threads to dig through, just viewable pictures. Maybe have sub tabs to separate each of the games the armor belongs too sift through pics easier. Halo CE, Halo2, halo3, 4, 5, ODST, that way people interested in certain types of armor to gain inspiration can jump right to a photo catagory of their interest to gaulk, Oooo and ahhhh then be able see the tagged creator and click to view their profile, start chats, view their build thread, so on.

I dont know, idea is just completely off the top of my head.

Regarding the Deployment FAQ:

That was a lot to read! So... how do I apply for Deployment?
To send in your Deployment Application, go to our Application Forms page, and click Request Deployment. Please ensure that all details are filled out, and images are attached. We need full body images of your costume. We cannot accurately inspect your costume if we can't see it! We need images of your costume that show the front, both sides, and the back.
Suggest changing from "go to our Application Forms page, and click Request Deployment." to "go to our Requests page, and click Request Deployment."

I love that we call the file location "The Armory" However i've had a few people i've managed to get on the site come back to ask me where the files were actually located.

It was easy enough for me to direct them, but also concerns me that others who don't have someone to ask will just assume they have to find or buy the files elsewhere. I feel this has been discussed before but maybe the tab name could use some changing and have "The armory" plastered inside the Tabs homepage. and have the actually tab labeled something more universal such as Resources, or Build Files (i know there's probably better names we could use then those). Just a suggestion though!

It seems this thread hasn't been used in a while, but I have noticed something odd. It seems that whenever I click on the margins of the window (like not a text box or on a link or anything, just in the dead space) it opens a new window to the 405th home page. This is slightly annoying bc it takes me temporarily away from whatever I was doing and most of the time I am just trying to bring the internet browser window to the front of all the other junk that is on my ADD computer screen. Is that supposed to happen? Can we remove that maybe?

There is no way to remove that without removing the background image so we have removed both.
