New Start for GoMod?
GoMod has been around for a long time, now. Two years, in fact. The torch has been passed down from HLModer to Ranger, and now to me - Dexter. The other leaders simply didn't have enough time, and felt tired of working on the projects. They were all great leaders. So - what does this mean for you?

With my other teammate, "Virtual-Xe", I'll try as hard as possible to create something new for the community. Mostly, codewise. I'll add things from GMod, such as simple physics, constraints, and gameplay elements such as roleplaying, and I'll add new features, too. The mod will temporarily use older models until I make my own HD models, shared with my other mod, HypernovA. Also, the name's back to Go-Mod, not Free Will.

Already, we've designed a style, as you can see for yourself. We've also made a particle simulator, to make it easier for you guys to make your own particle systems. We've also added a few behind-the-scenes stuff, such as reworking the toolgun from scratch. There's gonna be a system that allows players to join up with NPCs to fight other players and NPCs. I've also restarted work on RP_DownTown. It utilizes modelled props a lot.



Also, we're looking for a few good mappers. Especially ones with experience with both, GoldSrc and Source. Props will be provided.
Don't worry, guys, we won't let you down. Feel free to ask questions and make suggestions in the comments.

Thanks for this news, i have some questions about particle editor\system - Does it supports animated sprites ( .spr ) or sprite sheets? How many options will be alivable ( colliding with world, smooth fade etc. )? What image types it will support ( TGA, SPR, PNG, etc. )? How much will be particle cap?

Also i have a recommendation for you, i you will hit GoldSRC engine limits i recommend to use Xash3D engine ( Open Source GoldSRC clone ) here is this engine - Moddb.com

Also this text somehow hurt my eyes.

We're still working on it. We're planning for animated sprites, but not sprite SHEETS. Mainly because it's just not necessary. And unless we use a different engine, which I doubt, we'll stick with SPRs. But, considering what particle engines do, it's not really necessary for anything else, either. Thanks for the tips, though. Right now, I'm working on the Phys Gun.

Well, I don't think so, but apparently, Ranger the mod in my hands because I can do the job. So, don't worry, it'll get done, and, hopefully, it'll be good.

Not only that, but, unless I remake everything, I'll have to ask for permission from EVERY ONE, and most of the developers would have done it SO LONG AGO that they would be virtually untraceable. But, don't worry, there'll be content from most of the VALVe GoldSrc games. Hey, I might even remake the TF2 models.

Also, Sefer, it is possible. Most of the content from there were simply reskins of zombies.

For something as important as this? I don't think so. It's a change of administration, it's incredibly important.

Also, is that AOM I see in your avatar?

Thanks, guys. Could you post some of your maps for me to see? Especially source maps, or maps with models. The highest quality stuff you've got. See, I can only get around two mappers, because I simply can't AFFORD to make all the stuff you guys will be asking for. You can still make community maps, and any high class community map might be selected (with permission of the author, of course), to be in GoMod.

I'd map for this, But I'm a source modder, Gold Source is a pain in the *** to set up. Quake, I can deal with. Gold source though never works out for me.

Well, I'll provide models and textures if you're good enough. The question is IF you're good enough. I'm planning to remake a lot of Source entities (or at least what they're meant to do), so it should be a piece of cake.

If the mod has a lot of new and interesting stuff I might consider hosting like I used. I hope you guys add a lot more and make it a little less repetitive and more fun. :D

Well, so far, I've gotten the physics gun pretty much done. All that's needed is a new model, the effects, and a menu to chose the mode from. The base code for the physgun is done, though, and it's fun simply throwing scientists from distances. There's three modes, X Rotation, Y Rotation, Z Rotation and Distance. Position is done whenever anything is selected. I needed an extra button, so I made a new control. I'm using Mouse4, but I'll set it to Mouse3, too.

Well, Ranger simply told me on chat that he was seriously tired of the mod - he's been working on it for years, and he asked me to take the lead. I said fine.

Anyways, thanks!

It looks like you're trying so hard that you're nervous.
Don't be, it's just mapping for a mod, not like talking with the president.
