Welcoming Aces From Every Sky
Project Lighthouse is a community and website dedicated to flight video games. Though our primary focus is the Ace Combat series, we are including other old and new flight games for the enjoyment of aviation game enthusiasts around the globe. We produce content on our own and in collaboration with other individuals and groups. We have an interest in supporting and promoting efforts that create aviation game related media, such as music, art, game mods, translations, original games and more.
Our emblem uses a stylized silhouette of the International Space Elevator (ISEV) from Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Also known as "Lighthouse", the ISEV was constructed as a multi-national effort to support continued reconstruction of the Usean continent after the Ulysses 1994XF04 asteroid impacts.
Project: Lighthouse was founded on November 11th, 2016 by members of the previous incarnation of the Electrosphere.info, a now defunct Ace Combat English database. This was done in the hopes of continuing the long legacy left behind by the website famous throughout the Ace Combat community. After a year of networking, community building and website development, we publicly launched our website on November 11th, 2017. Our initial goal of unifying the fanbase of the Ace Combat series gradually expanded starting in 2018. Today, Project Lighthouse continues to hold Ace Combat at its core while including content about old and new flight games in various languages.
We at Lighthouse are a patron for content creators of all kinds, be it Literary or Visual. Not only do we promote and present artists, writers, translators, fan projects, or websites and communities through our official website, we aim to help creators from all around to improve their craft with our combined experience and resources. We wish to help aspiring artists, writers, modders and modelers - creators of all kinds - because we believe that together, nothing is impossible and any project can be realized. Feel free to reach out to us to explore ways we can work together as a team.
The content we create spans across multiple mediums and topics. On our main website, one will find in-depth analytical articles and reviews about flight games; image galleries and videos made both in-house by our dedicated and by fans submitted from around the world; community-based contests; and interviews with game developers (professional and independent), artists, mod teams, authors and more. Starting in 2018, members of Lighthouse have begun translating this content into languages beyond English, including Deutsch, Español and Portugués.
Lighthouse strives to be an international community and is successful in doing so. To support this we operate multiple Discord voice chat and text servers which are available for fans from different countries that speak many languages to use. This expansion has allowed Lighthouse to connect with even more fans of the flight game genre from many countries. We hope to continue to connect with many more people in the future.
