If you have any questions, make sure to read the description!

Kalopsia - Noun;
The delusion of things being more beautiful than they are.

What is Kalopsia?
Kalopsia is a work-in-progress Halo adventure map. When complete it will be an “open world” map, featuring a fan created story, focused on mystery and exploration. Taking place on a mysterious Halo ring, Kalopsia is rooted deep in the lore of the Halo universe. This map is in the Alpha stage of development and is available for download.


***Kalopsia is only compatible with Minecraft 1.16.5. Make sure to play in 1.16.5!***

Recommended mods and tweaks

While Kalopsia is designed to be played with vanilla Minecraft, there are some mods that I recommend. These mods help make the game run better and the map more immersive.

The first one is OptiFine. You can find that one here.
The second one is BSL Shaders. If your computer can handle it, I highly recommend this shader. You can find it here. It does require OptiFine to work.
I use this shader for all of my screenshots. To get the same lighting I have, in the shader settings change the blocklight color to: Red:176, Green: 160, Blue: 200, and the intensity to 1.75.
I take no credit for these mods. All credit and a huge thank you to their creators.

I also recommend you play Kalopsia with a minimum render distance of 16. Though if your computer can handle it, I would go higher than that.

I would like to suggest a wrecked covenant and or UNSC starship to add to the somewhat broken down story. I know you can’t garuntee to add anything but i think it would benefit the map just my opinion.

I appreciate the suggestion! I am actually already working on adding a crashed UNSC Frigate to the map. You actually spawn on it when you first load into the map.
There will be wreckage of it across the map in the future.
You can actually follow the development step by step on the Trello page.

Is there anything else you think I should add? Or stuff I should improve?

I might port it over eventually, but it won't be until after I finish the map, as it will be a lot of work.
I am definitely interested in trying to. Eventually.

I apologize for the late reply, I was on a little hiatus from this project.
I appreciate the offer, but because of how all over the place my schedule is, it would be too difficult right now for me to work with a team on this.
I really appreciate the offer, and I'm glad you enjoy the map! That means a lot.

Can I Ask You How You Made The Terrain?

Of course!
So years ago, when I was starting this project. I came up with some basic dimensions for the size of the chunks. I wanted a large map that felt like you were on a Halo ring, but not so large that I could never finish it. Plus I was limited by the power of my computer at the time.
I also wanted the terrain to curve. Not too much, as that would make it unplayable (that's what happened to version 2 of this map), but just enough for players to notice.

So, after coming up with the size and shape, I spent a long time finding the right world. I generated and explored a lot of maps.
Once I found the one I liked, I had to make the game generate the correct amount of chunks. Once that was done, I went into McEdit and literally cut the world into slices. Then I pasted the slices in order, in another world. Each slice would be a single block higher or lower than the previous, thus creating the "curve". Once that was done, I added the walls along the edge, and then used McEdit and world edit to carve and shape the terrain since then.

Basically, I used a lot of brute force. :D

So I actually really liked what I saw. I'm super excited about a more open world like Halo, especially set on a Halo ring. (just like Kalopsia! :D). Halo 3 ODST was one of my favorites, and I'm excited to see them using that kind of map style. I love all the movement they showed.
Though I am a little worried about the banished. I like them, and I think it will be cool to fight them, but I'm worried about 343 just throwing the created away. I think Halo 5's campaign was awful. I don't like what they did with Cortana and the created. But they did it. Halo 5 is cannon. So they need to do something with that. There a a few cool ways they could go with that, at least that I can think of. I just really hope they don't just hand wave them away. That would be so awful.

As for the graphics, since everyone is talking about them. I actually don't think they're that bad. It was a demo, definitely not a finished product.
I think the textures need a bit of work, they look too flat, and kind of plastic like, but it was an earlier build, and I trust that will look great by the time it's released.
Maybe that's just me being hopeful, but say what you will about what 343 has done with Halo, no one can deny that 4 and 5 looked amazing. I'm just not worried that 343 will mess up the graphics, I'm more worried about story. They need to hit a home run with this one, and I think they know that.

I totally agree with everything you said, the graphics are never really an issue with me(besides the texturework but that's that.) I read in an interview that they are deliberately keeping a lot of stuff behind closed doors at the moment until the game is released, either way, though it looks really interesting!



Here's that interview I mentioned if you're interested. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/infinite-inquiries

Hey there! I have a suggestion or two for the map, if there is enough space maybe you could go inside the weather control spires, and possibly turn them off if it’s even possible. My second suggestion would be to add more “behind the scenes” areas, like service areas or areas below the land.

Zaz101 avatar
Thank you for the suggestions! Actually, one of the climate control spires already has an interior where you can actually control the weather. There is a temporary translocation room under the surface that teleports you to that climate spire.

As for the second suggestion, in future updates I will definitely be adding more subsurface rooms and facilities, many of which will have hidden story elements. Atmosphere will be the focus of these spaces.

Do you have any plans for the Nether?

Would it be possible to reskin Diamond armor to look like ODST armor? Or make the shield look like a hard light shield?

What texture pack did you use for the water in the screenshots.

At the moment, no. However, I will say that you will be visiting some interesting places, not just on the Halo ring. But I don't want to spoil too much.

Yes and yes. I am going to try and have a decent amount of weapons from the games in this map. I can't tell you exactly which ones yet, but there will be a few.

The water in the screenshots are actually from shaderpacks. The ones I used the most are, BSL, and SEUS-Renewed. If you're computer can handle it, I would highly recommend you play the map with one of those shaders, as it really brings the map to life.
As for the actual water textures, they're just default.

It'd be great if you added other crash sites or dead forerunners with journals of their own to build on the lore.

I love the attention to detail in this map. The structures are incredible and I enjoy exploring each one.

Wish there was a way to continue the ring, as the water begins to 'bend' it would show a faux Halo continuing onward, and if you pass the boundary it would teleport you to the edge of the other section.

Zaz101 avatar

It's funny you mention that, because there actually are already a few journals hidden throughout the map, with MANY more to come!

And there will be more UNSC crash sites, as well as a ship in the future. Specifically the UNSC Dark Phoenix.
There are going to be a lot more things that expand and explore the lore. This map will be deep in the lore of the Halo universe.

Thank you so much! That really means a lot to me! I'm glad you're enjoying it so much.

Yeah, I unfortunately have not found a way to do that in Minecraft. The best I have is the "curve" the map already has that you mentioned.
That's not a bad idea. However, I'm not sure if you have found it yet, but there are structures to teleport between the two parts of the map.
