    The Project - Halo Update

    [​IMG]
    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?

    Let’s talk!
    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. -
    @CluelessKlutz

    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.



    Welcomes and Farewells

    Ctf requires the API update, which is being worked on. It will be back in the near future hopefully, but it's not really possible right now.

    Probably because you literally built the gigantic space station that is 97% of the spawn. Even though I got Alex to start building a halo spawn most of it was your gigantic build being linked up by Chopper with Alexs flooring.
