Report article RSS Feed Eternal Silence: Monster Update

Over 50 pics and great news. Vote for us, Mod of the Year 2008!

Posted by MadMechwarrior on Jan 5th, 2009


So the last update didn't have images. Some people might be sayin' "wuts cooking over at Eternal Silence, they don't seem to be doing nothing". The answers: hell no. We're still waiting for Valve to approve our game (should hear more by the end of the week), but we are definitely not standing still. Mostly we're fixing bugs, but since the need for images is obvious, I bring you a veritable plethora of images.

We'll open with 39 screenshots I took today dogfighting with Elusive in 3.2 (all added to our ModDB Gallery too!). I'd like to mention (in the interest of full disclosure) that I kicked his ass. We were fighting on de_battle_of_cerbera which is one of our new maps (and game modes). I think it has become my new favorite too. Here is a sampling. You will of course have to visit our gallery for the full treat.



Next is a little something we've been asked about a lot, but have been keeping secret (and which may make an appearance in 3.3), COCKPITS. Double your immersion with lovely electronic goodies and holographic projectors displaying your HUD components. I like the look of these and I can't wait to have them 3D-ized.


Finally we have a new character model which we have kept cleverly hidden. Daniel Williams did an awesome job on this one, the UTF Marine! Here he is doing a little dance


I know you wanted a release date, but we don't have one yet. But soon, it will be soon, I can feel it in my bones. We're pushing with everything we've got to get this baby out. We hope you will enjoy it. Happy new year to everyone and don't forget, ModDB is hosting their Mod of the Year 2008. VOTE FOR US!


A small note for our server admins: Version 10 has been released today. Update your servers! Our dedicated server is now released over the HLDS Update Tool, for those who didn't know. -game "esmod" will get you what you need.

Peace,
Dan

PS. I'm really tired...

That model reminds me of Republic Commandoes. A cool spin-off is a 4 player coop against the odds doing objectives :P

Then again I am dreaming.
