Mod of the Year 2009 Editors Choice - Best Multiplayer Mod

Posted by on

2009 was the year for multiplayer focused mod players, with many new exciting projects to grace us with the releases it was a good year. To be nominated for an award in Best Multiplayer Mod projects need to have been updated significantly during 2009 and be multiplayer focused. Here are the Editors of ModDB's top selection of 2009.



MechWarrior: Living Legends
is a total conversion modification for Crysis. MWLL is at its very core a mix between a First Person Shooter and a Simulation. This will be achieved through the use of a mixed arms massively multiplayer gaming experience where the player takes part in a battle using a variety of vehicles and weapons.


Renegade X
revolves around a war between the Global Defense Initiative, and the Brotherhood of Nod. Each faction would have their own base of operations consisting of buildings. A team had to work together to destroy the enemy base, while keeping theirs intact. By simply switching engines, our team will have fixed many of C&C Renegade's faults.

Shotgun Sunrise
is a zombie-riffic vehicular Western of brain-swallowing proportions, yeah? And here's how it works. SEVERAL COWBOYS roam in from the outskirts of town in a TRUCK. The truck seats eight. These cowboys have epic dress sense, by the way. These cowboys are called the RESCUERS. They must ACQUIRE THE ESSENTIAL SUPPLIES OF WESTERN POST-APOCALYPTIC LIVING

The Haunted
is a fast paced thirdperson horror-action game with focus on a intense multiplayer experience that is all about making a stand and liberating cursed places from the minions of evil. The game features several multiplayer modes such as coop or demons .vs. humans where enemies are spawned and controlled by players. The outstanding visuals lay a perfect tone for the gameplay.

NeoTokyo°
takes place in and around a fictionalized Tokyo approximately 30 years in the future. Mankind has begun to fuse with technology. Government and corporate corruption have transformed Tokyo into a deadly dystopian nightmare.

I'd have to say neotokyo for this one. In terms of multiplayer, I haven't played anything (non-retail) this good for a while!

However, as much as I love the moty's and follow them every year, I find there should be more emphasis on the players' choice, rather than the editors. It is the players after all that make up the majority of the community.

In any case, looking forward to the result!

I will give support to Renegade X. MechWarrior and NeoTokyo look cool, too.

I don't care who wins just that NeoTokyo looses. Really it shouldn't even be nominated.

Now that is nonsense, it's a pretty high quality mod, just like the other nominees.

In terms of visual quality it is. But in terms of gameplay quality it isn't. It seems good graphics is the perfect placebo to cover up shoddy gameplay.

It's an unbalanced POS in both the weapons and the gametype itself, with a randomly spawning flag which is always then biased to a team, rather than just being in the middle of a map.

I actually was talking about the gameplay.. From my experience it was pretty well balanced. Challenging, yes, but that's what a game should be like in my opinion.

But erm.. yeah, I don't know. Maybe we've played an other version of the game :P

Yeah, I've played it some, and I definitely find it a well made and balanced mod. No class is really overpowered.
I'm suspecting that these have played the game, failed miserably and thus the game is ****, rather than themselves being bad at playing it.

That's actually a flaw in the game's design. It rewards dominance too much, so if you are doing horribly there's almost no recovery.

Nice to know MechWarriors actually won it though, they deserved it. There aren't enough Crysis TC's out there

Are you saying you should be rewarded for being a loser?...I think if your winning, you should be able to get better, just like in real life. If you lose in real life, you die...end of story...lol

Damn remembers me to buy UT3 for RenegadeX ;)

MechWarrior: LL is really cool too, only if it wouldnt crash every 5 minutes :/

Most of the crashes should be fixed since the latest hotfix patches we've released this month.

If you haven't patched since you first tried it on day 1 release try playing the mod again - there's a few crashes here and there but for the majority, many players can now play for much longer periods of time without crashing.

Thanks for all your support guys! :)

There's also WAY more content since then too!

We're going UDK over the nest few months, so dont fret if you can't afford UT3 just yet.

We've got a present for ya, ha!

The Haunted is superb, Shotgun Sunrise while fun for a while is pretty low quality (both on gameplay and execution), didn't play Mechwarrior, Renegade-X is pretty fun and Neotokyo is a pretty dull tactical shooter (but high quality content).

Neotokyo. They love Neotokyo at Moddb!

I would choose Shotgun Sunrise though, it is innovative.

As you said, you didn't care who won, so long as it wasn't Neotokyo. So your comment is pretty pointless, you could probably give to flying pigs for the winner. Neotokyo didn't win, so you're happy.

If I remember you were a play tester for NT, and you always told me how great it was until they removed you. After you changed your tune saying how horrible it is. So really it's pointless you don't agree, or that you even made a post.

Crim is still on the team yes :)

Although currently visiting Austraila, so he's not able to pay our website bills ( Mechlivinglegends.net is currently down due to bandwidth quotas for the month) :P

It should be up tomorrow though once feburary starts.

Switch to 1&1. They offer unlimited monthly bandwidth on any deal available. I use them and have run sites with thousands of hits a day without even a single second of down time.
