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.
Due to continuing technical difficulties with uploading the video here on ModDB, We have uploaded the footage to YouTube. We are sorry for the delay.
This video is raw, unedited early gameplay of one of the new community-made maps in SMOD: Tactical Delta 6, de_vegas_css, meant to show changes large and small. It demonstrates the new Bandage System, new sound and graphical effects, new weapon models, and various smaller gameplay changes.
Some notes from the video:
-Pay attention to the new player movement, notice how you no longer can sprint backwards or to the side. As well as the slight ironsight bob while moving.
-When you cancel bandaging your health will continue to regenerate at a lower rate. the process is interrupted if you take damage though.
-The typical bullet whiz sounds have been replaced by the "crack" of supersonic rounds.
-NPC gunfire sounds now changes accordingly depending on your distance as in Half-Life 2.
-There is now improved and more realistic muzzle flash effects that include smoke.
-Tracers have been removed for a less "hollywood" look.
-The Battlefield 2 voices for the soldiers have been removed. This is due to copyright concerns and we are currently seeking alternitive voice sets.
-Sprinting is no longer infinite.
Please note that all elements in the above video are subject to changes before release. elements of Delta 6 are tweaked on almost a daily basis as the gameplay, sounds and graphics are constantly refined.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like SMOD: Tactical. We love games like Half-Life 2 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).
