Prepare yourself for an engaging first person shooter experience unlike any other.

Eternal Silence is a Cinematic Multiplayer Space Mod built on the Source Engine. It has been in development since 2003.

A massive deep space artifact from long-gone Earth was found and spawned a renaissance on the human colonies of the United Terran Forces. A gigantic assault from the UTF on the now independent colonies spawned the Neo Galactic Militia and started a deep space war the likes of which the world has never seen. Your role in Eternal Silence will be within vital strategic battles between massive capital warships. You will need your wits, your precision, your strength, your endurance, and above all your courage to take on the fierce challenges which await you.

Eternal Silence features the following:

  • Cinematic Battles between Capital Ships on battlefields as large as 32768 cubic kilometers
  • Choose between ataining victory on foot by capturing the enemy's subsystems, or be a pilot and bomb vital systems from space.
  • Fast and Furious dogfights between Fighters and other Tactical Craft in deep space. Escort you gunships to deliver a squad of marines to the enemy hangar.
  • A True Space Experience. Cut your ship's engines and drift in the frictionless void of space.
  • Action-Packed ground battles. Seize decks of your enemy’s ship, controlling or disabling their shields, weapons... Fight off the enemy and work as a team, fulfilling the role of one of many classes with an array of unique weapons at your disposal.
  • Achieve Victory by destroying the enemy capital ship inside and out.
  • A Complete Story behind the Eternal Silence universe, released chapter by chapter as a novella is available online

Will you uphold the Valor, Pride, and Regulations of the United Terran Forces, or stake your own claim in the universe alongside the brothers of the Neo Galactic Militia. The decision is yours, what will be the outcome?

Our team is working day and night to improve the game experience and bring out some new and amazing content.

Unfortunately the amount of players, playing our mod has been dropping. Before we bring out our new content we want to make sure, that we are pointing (rather coding) into the right direction with our ideas.

So please help us to bring out some amazing content and take part in this little survey (might take 5 minutes, but it also depends on how much you want to tell us)

Thanks a lot for your help and support!

I was hosting a server from my home for this but it wasn't getting much play. I now have a pro-hosted BF3 server I pay for that I'm considering switching to another game with less servers. BF3 is good but there's about 10,000 servers and not enough players to keep mine busy. If I can get enough interest, I could switch to an ES server hosting at least 16-20 players. My server host is and they have great servers.

huh weird... Every time i started the game to play online i always found someone playing it. On the other hand nobody stops you from gathering friends / like minded to crowd a game server on pre-set (to increase the possibility that all have time) dates.

I think I got a great idea, what about a Stargate version of this mod, you could both be playing border the enemy capitalship or just capture subsystems, but with Stargate features and classes.

Different maps would have different enemies, usually Tauri facing Gua'uld or Wraith.

God, why would anyone ever do that? It would only make the game appeal to a tiny niche playerbase. I've watched all of SG-1 twice, and Atlantis and Universe once as well as all the movies. I'm saying this because: Stargate mods are always terrible and have never worked. The universe simply doesn't work in a gaming environment, the factions weaponry is simply too diverse to properly balance. It'd be like Terminator 3: War of the Machines all over again.

Funny thing is, that this french-made ut2004 mod called SG-Special Unit crossed my mind... Which did seemed to be of good quality, but have yet to be released...

The "Infernal Silence Official" server has been dead for awhile but is back up again. I had trouble keeping it tracked due to a dynamic IP, but that should be solved now. I hope you will try the server. Thanks to "Ignition-Point Entertainment" for creating this fine mod.

I have a TeamSpeak 3 server for your free use if you play this mod: Port: 9987

Thanks for the kind words - but Crankshaft Games created this mod . . we merely maintain it ;-)

Judging by the comments it sounds as if this game isn't really played. What's up with that? When I played it when it was first released, I thought it would be like the next popular Half-Life mod which would be purchased by Valve because it was so damn good.

(EDIT: I haven't played the latest versions and stuff because I kind of forgot about it after I got a virus on my computer a while ago. I only played the mod for about 3 weeks and then got the virus)
