The year is 2531.
In the year 2531, during the infancy of the Human-Covenant war, human
scientists stumbled upon a new world. Named "Lumoria", the planet was laden
with both flora and fauna as alien as anyone had ever seen before. Nestled
amongst the planet's varying terrain lie architecture left behind by a once
seemingly all-powerful race known as the Forerunners.
But what began as a scientist's greatest dream of study and discovery
quickly turned into destruction and terror when the Covenant found the
planet as well. When the Covenant attacked the human research vessel, the
scientists had no chance. Their final hopes lay in a beacon dropped in
desperation. A beacon found by you. Arriving at the planet aboard the
small, stealthy UNSC Frigate Endless Horizon, your mission is to defeat the
Covenant, discover the mysteries behind this new world, and give humanity
their hope back.
Welcome to Lumoria.
If you missed CE3, here was shows finale, Lumoria Episode Two!
Along with this epic trailer that came with that epic show, here is the full size poster/box art that Conscars, the sky artist, made for the project.
As I write this, Lumoria Episode two is finally slowing down. The map is fully playable, and the things left to do with it are numbered. Like we said during our interview with the show, you can expect to see Lumoria fairly soon in the next coming weeks...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Project Lumoria. We love games like Halo: Combat Evolved that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
