We have made a new Enemy Territory modification called silEnT. Our goals with the mod are high quality, high performance and high configurability for both, the server and the client side.
Some of the features we have made:
In short, the mod is feature rich high quality Enemy Territory game. Admins can configure their servers to use only original Enemy Territory weapons or select the new weapons by their own choices.
The feature rich player database allows easy way to search and handle even offline players.
We improved the game performance in most areas including bandwidth and CPU usage.
We made easy 4 step installation for the server admins. Small download size ensures that nobody gets tired while downloading the mod from your server.
