Tour of Duty is a realistic team play mod for Halflife by Valve Software. The game is set at the height of the Vietnam war, between 1967 and 1973 allowing you to relive the conflict fighting either for the United States Marine Corp (USMC) or the Viet Cong (VC)/North Vietnamese Army (NVA).

The mod features realistic weapons of the period, and a number of gameplay styles including control point capture, demolition or bombing missions, capture the flag/radio/codemachine and escape and evasion are the currently coded styles.

We are also planning on adding rescue missions, where you'll rescue a general or famous figure.

We've added support for some vehicles that players can ride into the action in, with guns 'ablazing', right now, we have a huey that players ride to the bomb target zone, and have plans for PT boats in future levels.

Hey everybody, so Im not sure if anyone remembers me, I was quite young and obnoxious when I was a part of this mod team back in 2002 (it was my first real mod I ever worked on, I was a texture artist for weapon models). I just wanted to say whats up to everyone who might see this who had worked along side me on this fun little experience, it got me started down the path that eventually became a career for me (I have worked professionally in the video game industry now since 2005, and its all beacuse of my beginnings on the Tour of Duty mod!)

hey DN, glad to hear you made a life for yourself from the modding experience. i was in the middle of university when we were developing the mod and went on to work on games for 5 years after graduating. doing a little more mundane work now but still doing development. hard to believe people occasionally talk about the mod, guess we did something right!

Hey man, it's pentagon from the old ToD dev team... i did some textures, the hud, and the website along with Matrix (haven't talked to him in a long time). I'll shoot you a PM in case it doesn't notify you of my message.

Man I had such a blast creating this mod! I remember me and Teufel would be up all night creating the classes and what weapons each side should have, I spent countless hours recruiting people to work on the mod with me and was turned down a lot saying its a dumb and idea and the mod will never make it, lol who knew, then I found Sluggo and Commando (I dont even remember how) then things really started moving, man good times! thanks everyone!

Thanks for the time and effort put into making this great mod. I have good memories playing ToD, even if I spent too much of the time punishing newbs with the M79.

It may be outdated, but its a hell of a mod. I grabbed it and checked out the weaponry and maps. If I played this in 06, I would have been an addict. Very cool, very fun. Im glad to be working of Fall of Saigon in inspiration of ToD. Solid 10.
