Installation 07

> — Vociferous @ 11:22 pm


  1. Roswellian’s on to something. The rings depicted here have a single surface, very different from what we saw on installation 04. Why would the rest of the rings have a single climate? We didn’t even see much diversity on 05.

    The flood can obviously survive and thrive anywhere, even in space with 0 atmosphere and no much more temperature. Maybe the forerunner were testing where the flood liked to go on vacation? A tropical island by the silent cartographer, or hit the slopes by the control room?

    As far as this one goes, the ark looks a bit sandier for the most part. This looks a little rockier, maybe like New Mexico or where those Jawas captured R2D2. I dont see enough green to say Jungle, but we haven’t seen a plains environment yet.

  2. Well on the topic of different environments – and i don’t know if this has been said yet, i don’t have enough time to read all the comments – the different climates may be a way to study the Flood? Think about it, the only reason i can see so make so many different inhabitable places for the Flood is to see which one they thrive/cannot survive in. Thats my personal opinion.

  3. Well. Some people need to read more about the flood.
    Anyway, I don’t think this installation (which by the way is actually installation 01, vociferous got the rings backward) was hit by an asteroid. The simple reason is that if it was, it wouldn’t be there anymore. Think about it: that kind of impact would have been huge, and even the Forerunner materials have there limit (think Pillar of Autumn).

  4. Then again, the explosion from the reactors WAS awfully big…but I’m unsure if it would have had the same effect as a asteroid. It seems to me that an asteroid the size of the one that killed the dinosaurs would just tear right through a Halo, but these are just theories.

    Keep speculating.

  5. Here’s a thought: the Forerunner built each Halo with different climates because they wanted variety? Be more aesthetic? Interesting? Having 7 gigantic metal rings would look bland and get old after a while.

    Or, this ring could have been covered with massive oceans and landmasses like 04 was, but climate control was/is malfunctioning.

    Or maybe the climates of each ring evolved separately over time.

    Or maybe they are located at different points of their respective solar systems, and their climates are reflective of that (like how planets in our solar system have different climates; 04 is in a “Goldilocks” location, like Earth; this one is in a Venus-like location).

  6. Sorry, replace separately with differently in the third idea of my last comment

  7. looks like a desert. kinda like sandtrap

  8. I am aware I’ve been beaten to the punch. The ring is a varied environment just like Africa.

    The rings were probably designed by many Forerunners, right? The rings probably were built in their director’s image. I mean if you were designing something you’d make it the way you wanted to right?

    The Forunners sort of became arrogant and played God, eh? Probably from their feeling of superiority.

  9. heard someone on here mention why put life on halos if it was meant to stop infection (cant remember who sorry). Short answer to that in my opinion is to draw the flood to it when they fire it then the ark would repopulate it with species grown from it. The ark and the halo rings seem closely linked in the fact the ark is monitoring them closely and when o4 goes up in smoke it builds another (repopulating it with plant life etc).

  10. oh the way based that theory on the fact the terminals “essay” lol, mentions the flood were tricked by offensive bias into attacking the forerunner fleet im guessing he may have done the same to the halo rings by using what the flood would go for (living matter) as bait to make sure they never left the halo rings firing range (as there is a theory i think from the iris reality game thing to suggest they came from outside galaxy)

    Comment by ck1984 — January 23, 2009 @ 12:36 am

  11. Perhaps this is a bit off topic from the current discussion…but I always thought it would be highly enjoyable to have a Halo game(or series of) in which one of the primary objectives was to -explore- and search for such constructs….

  12. Actually, look at the bottom closely. To the right of the crater there’s a dark patch. Water?

    It almost looks like this place is a jungle type area, instead of moonish.

    Comment by Grant — April 24, 2009 @ 6:31 am

  13. Reading some of the comments here and on the other installations, and seeing the images, something came to mind.

    7 rings = 7 continents, on a reclaimer world?

    1 continent “damaged” yet can be repaired (Africa=installation 04)

    The other 6 correspond to the other continents. For example: the ice one is Antarctica, and the wholly desert one is Australia, the one from Delta Halo is North or South America, and so on.

    Just a thought.

  14. please tell us what the other ones are if u got them?

    Comment by Alertfiend — July 5, 2009 @ 3:17 am

  15. I got it each halo ring was fo testing how well the flood survived except for instalation 5 that looks like it was set on fire

  17. MARS symbol shows Phobos and Deimos

  18. At first I saw a moondesert Halo. Now I see a lush MT. terrainwith a forest and then snow covered peaks just before it cutsof into space.
