I had a brief stint at attempting to build stuff in Halo's Forge mode back when Halo: Reach was the word on the street, but let's just say that my days of being a tinkerer within the seminal FPS franchise's map building tool were as successful as building a milk chocolate castle in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

Luckily for me, and the plethora of Halo fans out in the wild, there are people who have the discernible talent of turning open space into an array of wonderful wonderlands for you to run around and gun your friends in.

People like the insanely talented Bearskopff over on Reddit, who has recently created a Halo 5 map iteration of Princess Peach's castle from Super Mario 64. And look at it, it's... it's incredible and so spot on.

Check it out:

Every brick of the build, Bearskopff revealed, counts as one single object within the map, which is a feat in itself. And in order to get the super cartoony look of the map, Bearskopff used Halo 5's "baked lighting". That's some effort.

Here's the map in action:

And here are some more images:

But that's not all this master forger has managed to put together, oh no! Bearskopff's Forge portfolio is a veritable who's who of pop culture goodness, ranging from:

The Millennium Falcon!

The Battle of Hoth!

Death Star Hangar!

And the icing on the cake...

Shadow Moses From Metal Gear Solid!

Truly amazing work! If you like what you've seen here, get over to Bearskopff's Reddit and imgur and keep an eye on what's in store for a new, great Halo 5 map.
