Star Wars in Halo 5 – Fan Creation


“Starfighter Combat” is exactly what it sounds like.

Following the Halo 5: Guardians Star Wars podracing Forge mode comes another one themed around the sci-fi universe. This one lets you battle in space.

Xbox Live user CaptainDireWolf, who made the podracing mod, is behind this one as well. It’s called “Starfighter Combat,” and it supports 2-12 players. You play on a team of either X-wings or TIE fighters, and the object is simple: take out your enemies using any means necessary.

The Star Wars spaceships are modified Banshees. To kill your opponents, you need to either shoot the exploding barrels on the ships or aim at the Banshee itself, which is partially exposed. This map/mode makes use of a glitch, so expect some issues and oddities.

Drone Star Wars Fan Film


Camera-mounted drones can be used for all sorts of wonderful videos. But I’m pretty sure the most wonderful use is to create own X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter dogfight videos—because man, this is one brilliant idea.

The fine folks at Corridor Digital shot a bunch of footage using a set of drones mounted with various cameras, doing twists and turns as they flew across the sky—and even chased each other at times. Through the magic of digital effects, they then transposed 3D-printed X-Wing and TIE Fighter cockpits (and in the case of the X-Wing, a back half featuring an R2-D2 action figure for reaction shots!) over that footage. The result? One brilliant-looking spacefighter chase scene.

It’s really, really well done—even the crash footage from the crew’s filming is put to excellent use, to portray TIE Fighters being blasted out of the sky. Bookended by some cute little stop-motion segments using Star Wars action figures, it’s a great short film.
