The Project - Halo Update
What is the Halo Update Project?
The Halo Update Project is an update to the Halo maps and spawn.
Who was involved in this project?
- @Oldchopper, @andrewrobins, and @alex77034 built the new spawn.
- @CluelessKlutz edited the maps and oversaw the project.
- @LordInateur implemented the new spawn and maps.
What was the purpose of this update?
A new spawn was designed and so this update centered around moving all of the portals and NPCs to make the upgrade a reality. - @LordInateur
The purpose of this update was to give halo a much needed revamp with it’s maps and spawn. - @alex77034
Halo has gone without any kind of update for more than two years. It's about time we start doing something with such an amazing minigame. - @CluelessKlutz
Which part was your favorite?
Although I don’t play halo, I think it was fun making the spawn with chopper because it was something completely different. - @alex77034
Frankly, my favorite part was Clue's unending patience regarding the amount of time it took to implement on my end. - @LordInateur
For me, it's gotta be how smoothly everything feels. All of the maps blend together, and the spawn feels like Halo. - @CluelessKlutz
Did you enjoy working on this update?
Absolutely, and I really hope everyone enjoys it. - @CluelessKlutz
There were definitely parts of this that I enjoyed. Mostly I enjoyed seeing the passion that others had working on this project. - @LordInateur
It wasn’t my favorite project to work on because of my lack of knowledge, but I enjoyed the fact that I was improving a minigame that the majority of meepers play. - @alex77034
What inspired the designs?
Before starting the project I was torn between doing a halo inspired map or a space ship. In the end, we did a space station, and I think it turned out outstanding. - @alex77034
When thinking about Halo, I was reminded of a lot of it is based around spaceships and such, so a space station seemed right to be a spawn. As for the maps, they're all inspired by actual maps from Halo. -
Which Halo map is your favorite?
I’ll have to think about that one for a bit. - @alex77034
Appearance-wise, I love Ragnorak, hands down. In gameplay, I have a blast playing on the sandstone map in FFA. - @CluelessKlutz

How did you find the server?
Well, I got bored of Minecraft singleplayer awhile back and wanted to try something new, so I looked up multiplayer servers and thought the name of this server was weird so I gave it a shot. I've been here ever since
What is your favorite part about the server?
Pvp of course. Halo is one of the best minigames on here I have ever seen, You'd never see something like it on a different server
1.8 or 1.9 PvP?
lol is that even a question? 1.8
What do you think of the Halo update?
It's really a step up from the original. The spawn has a much more halo-feel to it, and it could attract a lot of new players. The map updates make the arenas feel so much more alive which is what I love about them, and they also look insanely good too. It's one of the best updates Meep has had in a long time.
