It's mod season!

Postby .neo.styles on Sat Apr 29, 2006 6:00 pm

What mods are you looking forward to?
For me :
(Green = Ut2K4 mod, Red = HL2 mod, Blue =UT2k7 Mod)

  • Nosferatu (free standalone)
    Description : pits vampires against slayers in a dark, Gothic setting.

    Why it's good
    -It's free
    -Features an wide variety of weapons.
    -It's graphics are the best of both worlds : they're good, but not exactly next gen, so you won't have a problem running it.
    -It's got dual wielding.
    -Two very distinct sides to play as.
    -RPG system with improvable skills.
    -Excellent production values.
    -Weapon attachments.
    -Flexible bullet penetrations system.

    official site with more info, forums, in-game videos and more

    Image

    In general, I'de have to say that Nosferatu looks to out-do many commercial games.

    =============================================
  • Supreme Commander
    Description: This game is the spiritual successor to Total Annihilation, a game widely regarded as the best RTS of all time. It walks in TAs footsteps, adding many innovations, such as enormous maps. It also appears to have done many other aspects very well (such as interface) which is saying something these days.
    Why it's good
    -Huge maps.
    -4 distinct races.
    -Hundreds of units and structures.
    -Colossal units (which can even carry other units!)
    -newtonian physics model calculates the trajectory of projectiles as they move through the air, taking into account the whole game world. In other words, none of that instant hit stuff in games like Star craft.
    -Three unique factions with unique and diversified technologies.
    -Large scale combat on the greatest scale to date.
    -Two resources: mass and energy.
    -Avoids the trends of games that are based on hotkey navigation and mouse click contest, macrobuilding, map-resource war, land grab, etc. It’s a game that requires the player to employ actual strategy to win.
    -Zoom is not limited to being on top of your units instead you can zoom out to satellite view to employ strategic commands on the battlefield.
    -Huge maps that can span four square kilometers of rendered space.
    -Multi-click orders - when issuing an attack order, your units respond differently based on the frequency of clicks. Example: (one click) - attack unilaterally, (two clicks) - "all available units attack a single structure but only fire enough to destroy it", (three clicks) - Everyone destroy it immediately!
    -Many interesting units, like a mobile shield generator (think Episode 1 gungan battle scene ; ;) )
    -Buildings can be linked together for increased production.
    -Each Dot in satellite view = 1 formation. Formations can range from small, to massive scale. (i.e. 5, 50, 500+)

    Supreme Commander HQ
    Screenshot here

    Supreme Commander will probably eclipse it's predecessor, replacing it as the best RTS of all time. ;)
    Official Site with more media info

    ==============================================
  • STALKER
    Description: STALKER takes place in an alternate post apocalyptic version of the Chernobyl disaster. You go throughout the land in search of the secret.

    Think the premise sounds a bit dry? Yeah well, so did I until I saw the videos... ;)
    [u]Why it's Good
    -Enormous arsenal of 40 weapons, each a secondary firing mode.
    -The ability to upgrade your weapons and equipment, via trading with other characters in the world. Sounds neat, huh?
    -Completely open 50 KM^2 environment.
    -Non scripted AI yields a different game play experience.
    -Your actions influence the persistent game world.
    -Absolute freedom of movement, with no loading times whatsoever.
    -Dynamic day and night system as well as weather, each of which impacts gameplay.
    -Excellent graphics, courtesy of an impressiveDX9 renderer.

    STALKER looks to be the best FPS of 2006 hands down. Need more proof, check out the official site.
  • Xperiment (free standalone)

I'm looking toward the release of 2-3 Dawn of War mods.
All of the three seems to be realesed together (so the teams planned) and professional quality..

Thousand Sons http://www.thousand-sons.com/forums/ (need to register to see something)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Adeptus Sororitas http://dofw.free.fr/phpBB2/index.php
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inquisition Demonhunter http://compiler.free.fr/phpBB2/

###############################################

For Battlefield 2

Operation Peacekeeper. German KFOR vs Jugos, a theoretically scenario. They also try to include some realistic weapon behaviour, and while a lot of the team members were in the Bundeswehr it looks as if they will get something realistic...
http://www.opkmod.com/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Forgotten Hope 2 tries to bring a realistic WW2 Scenario, i think the 1942 mods where the first with released some 'realistic' 'iron sights' for the tanks..
http://forgottenhope.bf1942files.com/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Battlefield Pirates. Arcade like Fantasy Pirate Mod, very great concept art at the moment. Really funny because most weapons only have one shoot before you must reload and so there a lot of fencing.
http://www.bfpirates.com/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eve of Destruction, if you want to play a vietnam scenario, this is a game you will like (so do i hope, the 1942 mod was fun, and a lot better as the BF:Vietnam)
http://www.eodmod.com

--
So also looking forward for new scenarios and so on for Civ IV, and other games. But that's it for the moment.
(I don't think i need to mention Noseratur ;) )...
And i'm still playing with the idea now to buy HL2, but somehow i dislike steam...
A german poem (part) by myself

Firearms 2. If you didn't know the first one existed, you are a noob. At its prime it was one of the most popular HL mods out.

/e it's a HL2 mod.

I remember Firearms, the map designs sucked, and the forum community was made up nearly 100% of assholes.

How isn't it fair in Nosferatu? The Vampires are faster than humans, so it should be even easier for them to dodge the grenades.

/logic

Since you modeled it, you can just convert the file to the right format.

PS, what about the guns in my sig?

Answer for both sentences:
We've been over it, they're not going in and that's final.
