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. The customization will not only affect the aesthetics of your mech, but also the feel and usage of it. You may support your team by building structures and turrets...

Mechmod is truely making it's way up there, and amazes my eyes everytime they have something new to send in. Well today ladies and gentlemen, they've released a trailer that demonstrates their graphical water effects for this half-life 1 based mod, as well as lots of 2d art for us to feast on.

Quote:MechMod Water Trailer

MechMod's version for Half-Life 1, which will soon be out in the public's hands (or hard disks to be precise), is a stepping stone towards something much bigger. We have put a lot of effort to try and make our HL1 version's only release as pleasing as possible in terms of graphical advancements and mecha action. So we now present Step 1 of 3 of our release process, a video demo to the 3D water effects that MechMod has to offer. Pushing the boundaries of the Half-Life 1 engine? Our lead graphics programmer, Jason, certainly tries to - as he is the main man to credit behind our graphics.

Looks very sleek and professionally done. And that goes for everything... The site, the ingame UI, the menu, everything. This mod may be the one that finally breaks my dislike for robot games... This one looks quite good.
