SMOD: Tactical is a modification of the single-player SMOD(Super Mod) for Half-Life 2. This mod takes advantage of SMOD's robust customization capabilities to offer players realistic, tactical gameplay with real-world equipment and firearms in the style of games and mods like Rainbow 6, Operation Flashpoint, Red Orchestra, and Infiltration.

This week we briefly revisit Provenance, Emanuel apologises to Jailbreak! and Modular Combat is updated to v1.76. Oh, and Thomas returns from his 8 week gap. Shorter episode again this week, moreso than last week because no interview.

Thomas returns as Emanuel and William touch upon some missed point of Provenance. Also we get a chance to look at some of the more obscure russian releases. Finally, we are able to check out some awesome media updates.

In regards to the "other discussion" Dec and I both decided it would be better taken down. We will be having Dec on to talk about Mortewood plaza hopefully on the 13th.

I do enjoy your approach on community matters. However, I (and many others) hope the P17 group learned something from it and do make the effort to change.

Oh nice my mod did it into the podcast.. Didn't knew that it is so well known and interesting for people allready.. Thank you for telling about it and the other mods guys. :)

We will try to make it as decent and nice as possible. So far it will have many custom sounds - some riddles and of course some custom models.

It wont be just a simple mappack so much is clear by now. :)
