The Delta Sector is a modification for FarCry which will meet the highest quality expectations and will use the full capacity of the Cryengine 1. There will be new weapons, new vehicles and new enemies in this mod. You are a member of a special forces team. It's your job to check what's happening in eastern Europe, because many military forces accumulate in one area.

Post feature Report content RSS feed Mod Video Spotlight - April 2008

Welcome to the mod spotlight, a VIDEO showing off all the hot mod releases from the past month. So sit back, relax and watch the mods of April 2008!

Posted by on

Spotlight is a brand spanking new segment here on ModDB where we take a step back and show you a few short clips recorded from the various mods actual gameplay unedited and uncut so you can see how the game looks, feels and sounds. This is a fantastic opportunity for both the developers (for extra advertisement) and the community (for those who missed the releases). Plus who wants to read text when we can see flashy colors...!


Mods Featured

So guys now that another month is done and dusted we can only have very high hopes for the next month of amazing releases! Till next time mod away my good friends and watch this group for updates.

I really quite like this idea. Though you do sound rather bored when you say the game names, though there isn't much ypu can do when you are really just saying what game it is.

How awesome is this idea!? A video is so easy to watch and digest - find out all the mods released over the past month and how they look.

I'm a huge fan.

cute accent, not good for presentation though, the leveling is needed and it is not clear and loud enough.

RAW UNTOUCHED VOICES DON'T WORK WELL FOR PRESENTATION

note this for next month thanks unless you can improve behind the scenes on this one with the master files still.

love this idea! Although, I think this should be extended to including, say the top 10 upcoming mods by editors' choice. That way not only the released mods get highlighted, but also those that the modDB community (I would say the modDB staff is there to represent us) feels are worthy to keep an eye on.

I know I know.. but I meant only those mods that have already progressed to such a stage where they can provide in-game footage. See it as a form of ModDB TV *Preview Edition*..of course this would only work if the related mod teams would allow you to play-test their in-game content and then preview it.

But regardless of what you do. I'm loving ModDB TV..its a brilliant addition to the already great modDB. Am looking forward to the next installment! :)

I have to say, I never thought I'd see 100% totally positive comments on ModDB. Glad the video is a hit, as I said above i'm a huge fan, finally a way to quickly see all mods released so you can pick and choose what you want.

Just chiming in for the whole, beaten to death voice bit as the only issue. Beyond that though, nice way to get a nice visual summary of the month's releases/patches.

I'm wondering though if its possible to perhaps turn this more into a TV show sort of thing. A bit like Good Game where you do a monthly countdown of all the games released and say things like "this game is a FPS game trying to reinvent X" or "Its a story driven game set in the future", a bit like what most game shows do. At the moment it just seems like GAME, RELEASE DATE - FOOTAGE - NEXT! - thats good but It'd sound more natural with a whole GAME, DESCRIPTION, NOTABLE FEATURES, RELEASE DATE, FOOTAGE - NEXT!.

During the presentation you mentioned "UPDATE" so replace features with just a quick "major/minor patch/update".

Ultimately this could make the News feed redundant as this system absolutely rocks and it gives a lot of mods the attention they deserve. Sure we still need the news feed though (because it keeps our watching users informed, which is just as important) but this provides us with some good PR.

What would be cool is to have some Video Interviews with ModDB developers at some of the major conventions, of course that would require US counterparts in the event Intense can make it like he did this year at GDC, but I'd love to have a meet and greet over at E-Games in Australia since it was hell boring last year as not too many people wanted to talk. (Maybe I should be going to GDC too :P)

Sorry for the long post. This really does seem like a brilliant idea.

Good reply, the main aim was to give users an idea of how the game plays. Allowing people to see un-edited footage was something that I always wanted to show. It might be that the winner of the staff selection gets more face time with a short review. The original plan was to give a 1 minute review on each game and then a score. The problem being is that we are then judging the games against each other, but each game is completely different and each will be in a completely different phase of development (ie beta 1 vs a complete mod). So leaving the games to speak for themselves I feel is a lot more informative.

Keep your eyes peeled there might be something similar coming up sooner rather then later.

Oh and I love how you never gave the games ratings. It gives the users a chance to try the modd without feeling like a outcast if the mod deems unpopular at that present time (ie v0.005)
