Alien Arena is an open sourced game that combines a sci-fi atmosphere with the tournament style deathmatch of Q3A and UT2k4. Major graphical features such as GLSL per-pixel lighting, ragdoll physics, light blooms, real time lights and shadows, textured particles, shaders, and reflective water, create a colorful and immersive deathmatch atmosphere. The game also includes mutators, adjustable effects, bot skill settings, and fully configurable deathmatch, team deathmatch, CTF, All Out Assault, Team Core Assault, Cattle Prod, and Deathball games. The game features original artwork, with a dark, sinister atmosphere combined with an off-the-wall campiness, and trippy, techno type music. There are currently over 60 maps, loaded with weapons(each having an alternate firing mode) and powerups. Alien Arena has fast, smooth gameplay, & players can play online against one another or against the bots. Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.

With the spookiness of Halloween behind us we take a look back at a very odd month for modding.

With the spookiness of Halloween behind us we take a look back at a very odd month for modding. With a very large resurgence of Stalker graphical mods (seriously there would have been at leased 3 different graphical mods for Stalker that DIDN'T make this video) October has been a great month for modding.


Till next time mod away my good friends and watch this group for updates.

You seemed to imply it in the video's description.

If you didn't mean to, then oh well.

I recommend you try SA-MP (San Andreas Multiplayer) instead. MTA may have far more scripting capabilities. But SA-MP has far many servers and players. Also, a new version has come out recently (0.3a).
