Are there any endeavors to re-release Lumoria with Halo CE Refined team's fixes?

Lumoria is such a cool location, extremely fun, replayable, serves as a fantastic reminder of what made Halo great, and deserves it.

Lumoria gets so much hate I doubt we will see much more than the SPV3 Lumoria project https://halo-spv3.fandom.com/wiki/Lumoria I don't think we will really see anything like that, in all honesty I kinda don't want to, I remember playing it when it came out and thinking it was super cool when I was young but looking back it is a train wreck.

But it is a perfect train wreck where improving it would remove all the value it has.

I don't quite get the hate Lumoria receives. I enjoyed it. I thought it was 'beautiful'. I loved the scenery and the forerunner interiors.

I guess my only little annoyance I had was the 'custom voice'... Which there's nothing wrong with the voice acting, it just felt out of place.

Otherwise I give it an 8/10 in my books.

It was popular and people don't like what's popular. The people that hated is just because it was popular drowned out the people that actually had real criticisms (no like seriously, the people that got all pissy about it when it was released didn't even play it).

I've always really liked the first episode of Lumoria. I didn't care for the second episode as much.

I guess it's a little late for reviews, though Lumoria is probably better than 95% of the mods out there (such as all the bloodgulch mods we get).

Lumoria is great, sure the VA and cinematics have problems, as does parts of the story but it's damn fun and blew me away when I first played it. It's part of what got me back into working with CE after I had quit.

I don't think most the devs would like it much if it got a refined treatment, just because they went out of their way to make some of the visuals look old timey and different. I it was done though, the one thing I absolutely would like to see is the old AI returned, I hate how they changed it and made it more pop and shooty than the original game, and I think it is really detrimental.

As far as the Lumoria hate, I think a lot of it was what Matt said about it being popular, but Lodex really rubbed some people the wrong way for a while, and people decided to crap on Lumoria as a way to get back at him, eventually with it just becoming the popular thing.

I may or may not have stolen the pilot biped and the BSPs... It was by accident I swear...

The other reason why I loved Lumoria was it not requiring OS etc. and it actually looking like an almost lore friendly set of missions. Minus the Halo 2 ODST and (Halo 3?) flowers...
