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.

Where to start.

In August of 2008, a new mapping team was formed. That team was TM Mapping Team. It was designed for a single purpose: to create good, Halo styled, maps with good gameplay. While over the years the team has drastically changed, members have come and gone, we survived the ages. Our goals, overtime, changed, and we started focusing on one project.

That project, Lumoria, led to some of the best single-player content ever making its way into the H:CE Community. Our goal was simple: create a single player level with good gameplay and some simple story-telling. In my opinion, the team has achieved just that, and then some. We created a story around all of this, smothered it in classic, professional gameplay, and created some stylistic enviroments. But I think the most important thing that we accomplished on this entire project was actually finishing it. It's taken about 2 1/2 years I estimate as I write this to complete the entire campaign. While that seems like a pretty long time for two episodes (and four map files), our lives in those past years have been consumed by school, work, friends, and plenty of other things. I think we made pretty good time...

So, who wants to play some Lumoria?

Embark on a journey that brings you to the Forerunner world of Lumoria. When a scientific research crew sends out a beacon of distress, the UNSC frigate "The Endless Horizon", a frigate class ship, is sent in to execute a low-profile search and rescue operation. On board is May, a female SPARTAN II super soldier. Bred for combat, built for war.

Along her side are a hardy group of higly trained ODSTs, lead by Gunnery Sergeant Brandon Keiffer.

Drop in behind enemy lines and extract any remaining survivors as you race to uncover the secrets of Lumoria.

This is a great addition for users who do not want to waste time getting into the fight and also want a nice looking UI.

Concluding words from the developers:

Higuy says:

Lumoria is one of the best things to happen to me during my time on Halomaps and in the Halo Custom Edition community. It has taught me many things, not just about game development, but about leadership and what it takes to keep others working as a team.

It's been 2 1/2 years since we've started. While TM has changed drastically since then, we still accompilished our goals as a team. We created the largest custom mapping project. We made a custom story, maps, and gameplay. We did what no one else had dared to do or did not finish.

We made Lumoria.

I congratulate every single one of my team members and I wish I could shake every single one of their hands in person. I want also congratulate all of our fans, critics, and enemys for helping us every step of the way. Without all of them, the motivation to continue and strive would not be there.

May this map bring happiness and inspiration to all in the kingdom that is the Halo Custom Edition Community.

I shall end this little speech with some wise words from Jack Kerouac:

“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.”

Lodeman says:

Lumoria is not a planet.
It most definitely is not. No, Lumoria is something much more. Lumoria to me represents vision, devotion, motivation and dedication. An example of what can be achieved with an inspired, hard-working team of equal-minded people.

I would like to thank every person that embarked with us along this journey, the members of TM, our fans. Our critics.
For without them none of this would have ever seen the light of day. The variety in community members was the necesarry symbiosis required to sprout forth the bud of inspiration. For without warmth and care the bud would have weared off, for without harsh conditions the bud would not have become strong enough to survive the ultimately blossom to its full glory.

Most of all though I am curious to see where this experience will lead the people I have worked with, and how it will inspire others. I know some of us have some very cool new projects planned, and I think it's safe to say that we all look forward to sharing these with you when the time is right, if not per sé on this forum!

I shall conclude with some simple advice for anyone who wants to pursue their dreams in life, since creating Lumoria has been a very important first step towards reaching (one of) my own dreams. You should speak in actions, not words! If you really want to achieve something it will be up to you to take the first steps. The future is shaped by you, so just go for it and never regret any decision you make.


As of right now, this currently ends any future new maps for TM. Most of the team is moving onto other things, be it exciting new fresh projects, or new carreer choices. That does not mean there will not be future updates to maps like Episode Two should the need and demand arise, but we are ceasing any future new maps.

We thank you all for your support and dedication, and without an awesome community, we would have never accomplished much of anything.

With <3,


Throughout many beta tests, there was much notice of an exception that occured with the non-defualt sound related dll files. While we have done our best to get rid of these, the DEFUALT dll files are included in this package in a seperate folder called "Sound DLL's" just incase. While you may not need them, you may want to install them to be safe. If you do not install them and you find yourself to have an exception, please install these to complete your playthrough as they will most likely fix it. (if not please post in our release thread or email us at The DLL's are simply installed by placing them directly into your main Halo Custom Edition folder. Make sure you backup your previous ones before hand!

1. Extract the contents from the .zip or .rar file.
2. Locate your Halo Custom Edition/maps directory.
3. Please place,,,, and into the maps directory of Halo Custom Edition folder.
4. Press Lumoria in the new main menu, select "New Game", and enjoy!

You can always play different difficulties by using the "game_difficulty_set" command. Heroic is "hard" and Legendary is "impossible". (if you want to play legendary, hit console and type "game_difficulty_set impossible")

So, why did you name your vehicle "Shadow"? I mean, you also have the canonicle shadow right there along with it. I just thought that you would call it something else.

I do know the story behind the model, that it was called that by Bungie way back when, and that it is the inspiration of the Spectre, but still.

We called our vehicle the Shadow because it sounds alot cooler than Spectre (in our opinion). Also, stubborn as we are, we don't call our Covy troop carrier the Shadow...we call it the Creep. I think at some point in time in Halo 2 is was also referred to as the Creep. So in this regard, there is no name overlap :-)

Cheers and beers, my good man.

I first played Episode 1 sometime last year (has it really been a year? wow!), and it was an absolute blast. I checked the news from time to time and was discouraged when you guys said the project was cancelled - but here it is! Congratulations on finishing! You guys did a REALLY great job; I had many enjoyable hours. It truly deserves to be played.

Here's to finishing what you started :D!

Well, the animations were a bit sketchy, but then again, lumoria had so many epic moments and shootouts, that I acctually stopped counting. The Total War part on chapter III (2.2 if you will) was probably the best piece of gameplay I ever had in any halo game, I mean while bungie can't put more than two wraiths in a scene with a cutting edge engine, you guys with the 11yo ce engine put five... just to start... and that tricky little hidden banshee was just the cherry on the icing.

All in all, while I did miss some modded content (like drivable wraith and a new AR), the usage of native and beta content was genius. I've got to say that lumoria has a certain quality long absent from newer halo games. I wish we had more like it.

I cannot agree more with he NEW AR. It aimed really bad especially for a spartan. Everything else was amazing! A great campaign for a great classic game. :)

Yup, I love the AR, you can't get more classic than that, but I got to agree, it is a bitch to aim.

This mod was excellent... I can't even put it into words. This felt like a mix of classic Halo and newer Halos, but kept to its originality. I felt like I was playing Halo all over again.

Thank you TM Mapping Team. It felt really good playing this. I wish I could shake the hands of each one of you. =]

Hope you guys continue doing what you do. I wish you the best! You deserve it!

Highest Rated (6 agree) 8/10

Just finished playing it twice. Lemme say right of the bat, this is the best sp mod for halo that has ever been made. The gameplay is near perfect, and the landscape always presents you with interesting opportunities to take out enemies. The additions are flora and fauna was very impressive and added much more to the halo color pallet (green and silver). Even with the unpolished animations and unconvincing voice work, I would give this mod a 9/10. However, I cant look past a few major design flaws…
