Halo:Reach Forge World Map Ideas!?

Did they say we can customize forgeworld for invasion gametypes?  I want to use the clifftops around blood gulch and the gap that leads from blood gulch to the rest of the map.  That spot would make a nice bridge there among other things.
 
If we can't, then I'm specifically going to try to create some sort of air combat map with two "carriers."  And maybe a few racetracks.

I'm planning on having a "Halo: Reach Forge World" game night either the weekend of or the next weekend after the game's release, where anyone interested can join together in game and make a map while in the editor,  Of course, this means that headsets will pretty much be required as well as cooperation.
 
We can go into more detail as the day gets closer.

 @CitizenKane:  Sounds awesome. The only thing is people could get very annoying in Forge when they delete things for no reason and mess up the maps that are being created. Hope we can have everyone take it seriously!

I can't even start to think about it without actually getting to play around with it some.

Obviously everyone will have to work together.  I will have a thread the week of so we can talk about designs before getting in there.

I'd be down for it, but it seems like there's such a vast array of things you can do now.

I'd be interested in joining in to make a map.

When will they give us a real editor where we can make maps from the ground up? I want to make the ground, not just move stuff around.

Then start playing PC games. 
 
I'm going to try to make some kind of Siege type map and game mode in Forge world. Kind of like Invasion I suppose, but more focused on enemy elimination than objectives. It would probably be an Infection game type.  
 
I'm not sure of the particulars yet since, well, I haven't played it, but it is something I've wanted to do since Halo 3. I kind of succeeded, but the tools weren't really there to do what I really wanted to.

"Then start playing PC games. " 
Why Far Cry 2 had a real map editor, and its on the console. (sure the game wasn't very good)

Im looking forward to making some cool forerunner maps, pretty much any map that looks man made or is integrated into the terrain, wish there was a terrain editor but it's better than nothing.

I want to be the first person in Halo Reach to build a giant penis!

What you need to do is make it subtle.  Make it look like a penis only from some angle and then make sure to create an excellent multiplayer map.
It would be awesome if people realize the map they've been playing on is really a giant stealth penis.

Fine, but I will populate it with the penis creatures from Spore.

I am not good at forging but a floating map with tons of small islands and the only way go between them is man canon or jetpack.
