The elusive, enigmatic and always entertaining figure formerly known as The Battle Cat has proven to be one of the most dedicated fans of Bungie's Marathon series in existence. While others have moved on to other games or left the scene completely, Gary Simmons has been cranking out more information for the Marathon map-making community. His latest contribution is a series of tutorials for Anvil, the resource editor paired with Forge used to create new maps and solo adventures. The tutorials, created by another Marathon scene stalwart Hamish Sanderson, have a wealth of information for anyone out there inspired to create a Marathon Infinity solo adventure.
