0 comments by hekar on Jul 27th, 2012

Since we stopped development a few months ago, we're releasing the LuminousForts source code. Though it has always been available, this is a really simple to use copy of it. To modify and run the code, you need LuminousForts installed and Visual Express C++ 2010 or Visual Studio 2010. It's that simple.

The game can play all of the Sourceforts maps out of the box and actually has a lot in it. There are a few gamemodes and other fun things.

Here's the link to the code repository:

There's also a download of the code on

You can check out the LuminousForts wiki for more info:

Have fun. Relive the Sourceforts days.

hey Raxsta, you were 3 days too late : D. I quit the mod. I was the programmer. People are looking for someone to take over the mod, if you want it, private message me on the LuminousForts forums.

Can I get a list of entitys needed for a map? Would make it easier to contribute.

Thanks for the interest!

Azgag is making a mapping tutorial for the wiki.

We also have a development entity list at:

Basically, you're usually look at using the prefab in the luminousforts/prefab folder for block spawners. Then lfc_prop_flag, lf_trigger_nofreeze, lfc_trigger_flagzone and lf_player_spawnpoint.

I'll probably be working on making those names easier to remember by removing the "trigger_", "_prop", etc. (don't worry, your old entities will still work)!

You can also directly port Sourceforts 194 maps. They work out of the box.
