About MechMod MechMod is a total conversion of the Half-Life 2 engine and is based on Mecha or Mechs. We have already released a primary Alpha 1.0 version of the mod, which was based on mechs taken from the Gundam and Macross/Robotech series. Alpha 1.0 was a 'test' release which the team put together while waiting for Half-Life 2 to go public, and the Alpha is also considered as a stepping stone towards something much bigger. MechMod stresses the importance of strategy, player reflexes, and teamplay all put together. Whether you want to play fast-paced and go on the offensive, or whether you want to take it easy and concentrate on building up your defenses - MechMod has all the options available for you. The player has the ability to pick from different classes of mechs and customize them to his/her needs and desires.
