Half-Life 2: Short Stories is a team working on a group of modifications that take place in the same realm. A lot of the focus is on the story and gameplay, new innovative set pieces and puzzles. After the release of the first episode of Human Error, the team is planning to release more episodes and expand the characters and the world.

Another month another Spotlight this time we hit you with the best flavors of July 2010. Since I have been receiving many more comments to bring back the VO I decided to trial a brand new style, less reading more listening! Let me know what you like best.


June 2010 ModDB Staff Selection

Firearms: Source

Blue player models ps_snowstorm action screenshot

Firearms: Source is a team based first person shooter, rooted in the traditions of the Firearms mod for Half-Life. Firearms: Source brings the best aspects of Firearms to the Source engine, and then takes them a step further. You'll see a host of familiar weapons and maps, but you'll find the streamlined game play to be faster, focusing on aggressive, skilled play. From nearly the moment you spawn you can expect to be engaged in furious action.

Till next time mod away my good friends and watch this group for updates. Also check out the blooper reel for the voice over work!

Like the commentary, glad it has been added back in, but could you include the information at the bottom back in like before?
Telling you what game it's for, Single or Multiplayer, and the file size etc.
I really liked it.

We found that it would take up too much space on the screen for far too long.

I too believed that the information like size and multiplayer/singleplayer was helpful, even if it was just there for two seconds. Atleast its there for me to pause and look back at it.

Having the info was good, I liked to know the impact on my hard drive, and if its a single/multi game.

Like the style of this one tho.

The links to the mods are right there, you can easily check that stuff yourself.

Anyway, Henley, this was an excellent Video Spotlight, your narration really does add some personality to it and is very informative.

It's very good to know whether a mod is just a graphical update to a game and what new features an update provides. It's also very nice to hear why a game/mod got to be the months Staff Selection.

Minor nag, isn't Jailbreak getting too much credit, it's my brain production and I ain't a Jailbreak developer :P Ofcourse, their textures/models and Wills being part of the team do deserve a mention.

AtmosFear looks pretty sweet. I used to play Firearms for HL1 when I was a little kid all the time and so I may try out the sequel.

Taken from the top of the page(might not be there if you checking this out through a mod link):

To enter all you need to do is make sure you release your game or a decent update (so guys don't be skimping on the content!), and make sure it gets onto the Mod DB front page (for more info on how to make sure your news gets there click this link), its that simple!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes
Heaney

The problem is that the mod I'm thinking of has a really great front page and is a brilliant mod but its articles are nothing special :\

Well, tell the mod team that they need to get someone working on improving those articles :P

That's just how ModDB rolls, as a mod developer, you manage your own stuff, put some effort into it and they'll put yah in the spotlight, if not...

Source is the most used engine cause its a EasyToUse Editor , ability for custom mods with different settings models and materials. Quickly said its a Quick Game Editor.

I actually didn't like Source for a long time, because the competition seemed to outmatch it technologically. However, I see very little Unreal Mods and no Crysis mods getting finished - even though they all start promising.

So I started liking Source based upon lots of mods actually getting done on it. The pity is there seem to be almost too many mods for Source. I personally played a good deal, but there are far too many Source mods to play them all, regularly. (Plus a lot of the old builds don't work, due to constant 'fixes/updates' from Valve).
