Desert Crisis is the most unique mod you'll find. The action is always blazing fast and intense. Weapons range from modern pistols and machine guns to vulcan chainguns, flamethrowers, plasma canons, C4 packs, flare guns, electric sledge hammers, katanas, laser pistols and rifles, and more! Items include energy shields, anit-gravity packs, IR goggles and more. Use a variety of perks such as extra speed, kung fu master, woo-tastic, stealth, bio-regen, and more! Features bloody detatchable limbs and heads like Soldier of Fortune and a huge entity system that allows mappers to create any kind of map or objective you'd ever need. Would you like your objective to be to deliver a pizza and then blow up a building? No problem! Total freedom. You also have the freedom to customize your players looks with a variety of heads, skin color, glasses, hair and facial hair, hats, mouthwear such as cigars, pipes, cigs, etc... and tons more! Recognize players by their looks, not just by their names!... Read More...

I remember playing before & now - It's always lonely without no players :C

But I actually want to ask this:
Will there be a Source version of this mod, please?
I really want to play it on Source! And Source version will definetly attract a bigger community.

I'm Still waiting for totally functional bots, Akimbots are supposed to work, but the last version is invisible and older versions are just dumb to play with...

Hope someone brings light in this aspect someday ^^
