The third quarter of 2010 was all about variety, with a large number of mods releasing that have come from a whole heap of older games, not to mention some of the more hotly anticipated mods finally seeing a release. Alien Swarm who you should all remember started out on the UT2004 engine was picked up by Valve and released a very complete and exciting client for free during the quarter another success story was everyone's favorite mod turned Indie game Natural Selection 2 releasing an alpha for anyone who pre-ordered the special edition.
Firearms: Source has been in the works for a while now, being based on the original Firearms for Half-Life Firearms: Source does the original justice and expands into more modern territory both for gaming and the setting the mod is from. Highly recommended that you check this one out. Nightmare House 2 is a sequel to the original Nightmare House which aims to scare you in unique and interesting ways, coupled together with high quality assets and art direction with fantastic voice action. Nightmare House 2 is a must play for 2010! Nehrim: At Fate's Edge comes from a modding world thats populated with book cover re-skins and elf nude mods. Nehrim is a fantastic example of what talent and ingenuity can create, a brand new world with new well everything including lore and voice acting. A massive exciting and well polished mod. Another must play for 2010!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like open Outcast. We love games like Crysis Wars that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
