You should probably just get your own website at this point. We did that for Lumoria and was super handy not only to simply have all information/media in one place, but also "official" download links and the files themselves hosted on our own servers (besides from Halomaps). Overall, it just looks much more professional that way - considering SPv3 has such a wide reach/playerbase, it would probably be best to do something like that too.

Either way, there isn't really ever a reason to use mediafire. While the service itself isn't really a problem, the website is definitely associated with files that may contain viruses, and to an average user, does not seem secure. Google drive is really a great alternative option IMO and is pretty cheap (like $2) for 100gb/month, if creating/maintaining a website is too expensive.

Lumoria's official website is still up btw - we can always host the alternative CMT version as well once it is complete.

Considering you use their effects in your mods... that's a bit harsh don't you think.

It probably would be good to have a mirror there, our own websites are the wikia and the subreddit. We canít host on halomaps as the maps are no longer able to pass the requirements here as they are no longer self contained.

Mediafire we previously used just because of the ability to have the downloads recorded, but itís not really ideal in the long run. Currently, we hope to track individual unique users which is a much better metric, and hopefully how often they go to play too. I want to do more advanced metric tracking, but of course there are the privacy issues related to that and public trust.

So uh, why would you need this information?

In terms of unique download numbers, itís just a good metric to have in order to know how big your audience is.

As far as other data we could gain from the player profile and saved core files, we could potentially see what missions people are playing on and for how long, and in certain cases have the player send us their game state so we can resume their mission and determine if a crash is hardware related or an error on our part. I imagine anything beyond the unique user ID (which would be anonymous) we would let people opt into, rather than just acquire. All this stuff is theoretical, but similar data was sent to bungies servers with h2 in order to get metrics on player behaviors in that campaign.

Like I said, there are lots of possibilities but what we can and should or would do is still being discussed and debated.

1. Audience size
2. Popularity
3. Bragging rights

So Masters, how about you do what all the big companies are doing, start adding microtransactions! I bet they'll be a massive hit with the community! You'd make so much money on the side!
