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!

Report article RSS Feed Gaming Events for Feburary 20th and 21st

We focus on the newly released Kingdoms Collide and recently updated GoldenEye: Source for this weekend.

Posted by DOLBYdigital on Feb 16th, 2010

Welcome to the Social Modding Club,
We are a group of gamers that play all the great online mods together. We have a slight focus on mods that don't have huge user bases but are a blast to play. Please join or track the group, enjoy the events, and post your own events and gaming requests in the forum. Below you will find information about the upcoming events for this week:






Date
: Saturday, Feb 20th 2010
Time: 2pm until 5pm EST
Mod: GoldenEye: Source
Download: Link

GoldenEye: Source is a modification of Half-Life 2 that does a great job of bringing the experiences from the original GoldenEye64 back to life. The team is releasing their latest update to beta 4 on Friday 2/19 so what better way to celebrate the release than to play it all day Saturday! There won't be update files, just a full install since they changed and added so much so prepare to blown away again.

Time: 2pm until 5pm EST
Mod: Kingdoms Collide

Download: Link

Kingdoms Collide is a total conversion fantasy MOD for half-life 2 with online combat that utilizes skillful melee, archery and magic. It is planned to release this Friday 2/19 with tons of content for everyone to checkout (20 spells, 10 weapons and 5 characters). I am unsure what the server situation will be like so I will post some IPs here once I find out. Hope to see everyone online this weekend even if its only for a game or two! Finally I apologize for the lack of a Wednesday event, it will return next week so stay posted.

Great to hear you might join in, maybe you got a new modem? :)
Well the group has been growing slowly but surely so its hard to tell how many show up for any event.
Also some of the mods I have been playing are kinda popular due to updates etc so even though I commented with server IPs, most gamers probably just found a low lag server and rocked it ;)

Nope no new modem, but a friend agreed to DL stuff for me (: Still have to find a test-modem :/ But the reason why I'm posting again is: Kingdoms Collide is delayed! Is there going to be an alternative?

Great to hear your checking out GoldenEye Source. Half of my goal for this group is to just introduce and allow gamers to play all these great mods out there with others. There are so many that it just gets crazy trying to keep track of them and some take a little playing before you see the real beauty of them. If there are no players though then people will never know how good the mods are. So if you or anyone has any suggestions please use the suggestions thread in the forums for this group. I love finding new mods :)

Yay! GE:S! I was on SourceForts for a few hours the last day and saw no-one... You should probably advertise a single server for everyone to join.

I personally don't have a dedicated server to use so I usually just find one in the mod and post a comment with the server IP and name. The main problem with this approach is that we are all in different countries so the lag can be quite bad for people sometimes. I am still working on ways to pull everyone together easily and if you have any ideas please let me know :)

However I am surprised that you didn't find the server that I posted in the SourceForts news event. There were at least 20 people at one point and it was sweet. I posted the server's IP and name in the comments and there were only a couple servers to choose from :(

Well don't worry cause I plan on using SourceForts much more since it needs it and is a sweet mod!

Must be my damn ISP I guess. Used to get over 1000 counterstrike servers, with the new ISP I can only find ~50. And half of those have bad ping. Managed to get around 400 with some minor modifications in my router but the damn thing boots me off the connection and logs a UDP flood (???). Guess the server just wasn't visible to me.

Hopefully next time it comes round to SF I'll have my router woes fixed.

Just noticed that Kindoms Collide is getting delayed (thanks metalspy) so we will change Sunday's mod to SourceForts. I know we just played it last week but many were unable to show up and it really needs more people playing. Also I don't have a lot of time this week thanks to work so I'll just stick with this classic.

Date: Sunday, Feb 21st 2010
Time: 2pm until 5pm EST
Mod: SourceForts

I will post the server IP and name on Sunday so those who can't see the server in the browser can try directly connecting :)

There are around 12 servers with people playing in GoldenEye Source. I am surprised that there isn't more since this mod rocks. So you should be able to find a server with a low lag but here is the one I'll be playing in for awhile:

IP: 216.52.148.210:27015
Name: AwpaholicA.com GE Source

Yeah this mod rocks, played it for 2 hours and I love it (: Too bad you weren't online on Steam :P
Maybe there should also be a Steam group for this group, so you can post announcements there.. I think that would be nice.

Glad you enjoyed it Metalspy!
I actually was thinking of something similar, think I might try making a steam group and then just mirror the news events on moddb and the steam group. Then encourage people to come to this group for forums if needed. I will look into this and report back to everyone if I get it setup.

Oh and I was online for awhile playing GE:S but had to stop early around 4pm.
Sucks I missed you but I'm playing all these mods constantly so feel free to shoot me a PM or use the forums. Also I'll be using all these mods again since they need more players!

Had some trouble with the GE:S mod. It kept reading a memory address it shouldn't have and therefore crashed every time I tried to start it. I'll have to see if I can make it work for the next event.

Man that sucks, maybe the download got corrupted?
Guess you could try downloading it again and extracting it from new download just in case.
Hope you can get it working since its a great mod that just keeps getting better.
