The problem with multiplayer mods is the lack of players; the solution is to play them. That's where the Modding Social Club (MSC) at ModDB comes in. Want to get social? Pop into our bi-weekly event-- just join a server of our target game with people in it.
Join the ModDB staff for some good times in the latest release of Eternal Silence.

Many mods suffer from lack of a constant playerbase, regardless of their overall quality. People jump in, don't see anyone online and then never come back. The cycles repeats and as a result many mods struggle to maintain populated servers. Not necessarily because there isn't anyone who wants to play, but because they're never on at the same time. The Modding Social Club aims to alleviate some of the growing pains mods have and help players enjoy some of the under-appreciated mods by having everyone hop on at the same time to play. For all who decide to participate, it means packed servers and good times with fellow ModDB members.
The mod chosen for our first weekend session is Eternal Silence! Even though it's celebrating a recent Steamworks release, this mod deserves a healthy playerbase. Let's show our support, fill their servers and own some noobs! ModDB staff will be playing throughout the weekend. Add us to your Steamfriends if you want to join us directly. (Ryan and Dave) Most importantly, have fun out there!
