Join the Social Modding Club where we plan events to play some of the great mods of our time, both old and new. The goal of this group is to allow members to easily plan and schedule events for gamers to play together. Moddb.com and Desura allow anyone to easily find, download, install, and update mods. This is the perfect place to setup a group with a forum that pulls gamers together so we can all enjoy the fruits of everyone's labor. My hope is that this will allow gamers to experience some of the amazing online mods that don't always have a large user base. I plan to have regularly scheduled events to keep this group active and a forum that will support users posting their own events or requests for gaming. Please join the group and enjoy the pleasures of playing mods with friends!

I honestly can't think of a better game than SF for this.

There is a slight learning curve (takes about an hour to get the hang of the gameplay) but after that the fun is endless.

For those who don't know it, here's the general idea:
Capture the flag style gameplay,
Class based (5 classes),
The forts are built by the players at the start of each round.

Rounds consist of phases.
First a long build phase in which you build a fort using the gravity gun and freezing blocks in place.
Then a battle phase. Both teams attempt to cap the flag and get around any weaknesses they find in the opponent's base design.
Then a short build phase, repair your base and plug up any exploits.
More battle.

The server can set any limit on the number of blocks allowed in the building of a base. Pro games have 30 or less. Public can often go up to 200 or more (Get 32 people on a small map with 200 blocks a side and prepare for all kinds of awesome).

Any takers /?

Sounds like a great mod and I'll throw it into the events for next week :)
Thanks for the heads up and keep them coming!

Glad someone is trying to get players online.

Oh yeah, for those who are too lazy to google it, SF is a mod for Half life 2 and uses HL2 props, so you'll need either HL2 or ep 1 to play it. Not sure if you can get away with CS:S.
