Post news Report RSS Mod Appreciation Week 2015

Love mods? So do we! Let's show them how much by sharing our favorites and win kickass games for participating.

Posted by on

We ******* love mods! I'm sure that's no surprize to anyone. And after the paid modding saga blew up it is clear that millions of you out there love mods also. Mods are such an important part of PC Gaming - but it occurred to us that until the community found its voice a few weeks back, we mostly took all the hard work and effort mod teams put in (while asking for nothing in return) for granted.

Introducing #modlove2015


We felt it was time to change that by raising awareness for our favorite mods, so developers know their effort is enjoyed and appreciated by many. It's the least we can do, and with more games supporting modding today than ever before we need to encourage game developers to continue working on keeping their platforms open and mod friendly.

Get involved!


This week you may have noticed every mod on the site has a "love bar" shown on their profile, which looks a little like this:


Just click any of the handy links provided, then post a message with a link to the mods profile to help raise awareness and appreciation for your favorite mods. Or follow these steps:

  1. It doesn't matter where your favorite mod is hosted be it on Run Shoot Think Live, GameBanana, Curse, Steam Workshop, Nexus or Mod DB.
  2. copy its URL then write a post explaining why you like that mod (you could write this post on your blog, in a forum, a tweet or facebook) the more we share the better.
  3. Tell us about your post by linking to it in the comments here.
  4. At the end of the week we shall be picking a few lucky members who left a comment following these rules at random, and giving them a key to one of the games listed below as thanks for helping us celebrate mods!

Game giveaway


We have partnered up with many awesome games that either support mods, or began their life as a mod and will be giving them away to participants. We've got hundreds of keys for the games listed below - just follow the steps above to be eligible to win!

Told a friend about a mod I've been looking forward to playing!

I like the idea of the mod since it interests me about how it will be done, since converting Gldsrc maps over to Source is quite difficult!

It's an old one, but still active "Sven Co-op". It has given me many years of fun. I was very active in the community as moderator and even developed some stuff officially (Minor assets) and unofficially (Huge TC called "Land of Legends").

I can't really promote other mods because I'm more invested in the indie scene for the last couple of years.

I'm afraid I don't use any social media, blog or the sorts to spread the love...

I do know that all mods deserve some more recognition!

These guys from RHS do a insane good job, there addons are high quality and got a lot of nice features.
Only with mods like this one is arma3 for me playable.

Edit times is so short and I found another good ones.

The Armed Zone for Misery2 because more toys is always good.

VtM: Bloodlines Patch Mod by Wesp5. Absolute diehard fan of the game, still give the love after decade of the release. If every modder could be that good, the world would be beatiful.

Diablo: The Hell
Almost every hack'n'slash is about relaxing chopping. This time it's opposite. Sweat and tears, whole cup.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Wormwood
Great overhaul mod, feels like creators learned all lessons from mod creation.

Gothic 2 - Enhanced Edition
Roll all the way though detailed world, once familiar, now rearranged with new ideas and concepts.

Ultimate Apocalypse for Dawn of War: Soulstorm
As the title state.

I've shared my favorite mod on Reddit/r/fallout. My all-time favorite mod ever is a Fallout 3 mod that combined the game with the Cube movie series. The mod adds an underground facility like the one in Portal 2 that can be explored and has been filled with some puzzles.

My reddit post:

The mod:

Because it makes Stalker Shadow Of Chernobyl look fantastic!

Stalker Shadow Of Chernobyl (no offense to any fans) doesn't look that visually impressive today, and while that's more of a minor issue, somebody (True Zone Projects) went out of their way to make this fantastic mod.

I tweeted bout' it on my twitter (@DerpIsNotHerp)

Amnesia - The Dark Descent
Mod: The Great Work

Set in diffrent, awesomely done locations featuring Britain and Europe,
with high quality crafted maps, and amazingly well written, interesting
story, which in my humble opinion is a pure diamond among all the other
mods. It will take you on a stunning adventure, full of various puzzles,
and creepy events, on over 7 hours of gameplay. This mod has the best
atmosphere ever done in Amnesia modding, featuring true, suspense based
horror, instead of non - scary, pathetic jumpscares. There is also high
quality voice acting. I should also add, that you should be careful,
because unlike many other mods, this one contains custom enemies that will
give you nightmares you've never had before.

Nothing else to say, just download it, if you own Amnesia. It is truly a
genius masterpiece crafted with love and passion.

I'm currently hyped up for Deus Ex Revision as stated in the tweet., this mod seeks to completely enhance the original Deus Ex with upgraded graphics and with work being done with the maps. I would recommend this mod to any fan of the original Deus Ex given the amount of work that is being done with it, and especially because of the amount of communication between both the devs and the community.

This mod holds a very special place in my heart. It was the first mod I ever played.
When I was little, I played Homeworld every day. I love the game. One day, my dad installed something to it. Now, I had only heard of Star Trek but never actually watched it. This mods introduced me to Star Trek, and the wonders of modding. I love mods, and this is the one that got me started.

I dont use any social media (sorry ;-;)so i would like to tell everything here.

I would like to promote these 3 "Small" mods:
1.Missing Information.
Moddb.com
I think everyone here knows about half life series,and the "infamous" leak of it in 2003.If those who didn't know,following the half-life 2's leak back in 2003,it was known that originally the game had an much more darker atmosphere.This mod tries to recreate it.And it does it pretty well,actually.It recreates also the "Borealis" Chapter which was cut and left for half life 2 episode 3.Mod hasn't been updated since 2011 however,i have very high hopes for it and i hope it doesn't die.
2.Dark Interval
Moddb.com
Yet ANOTHER mod trying to recreate the dark atmosphere of the half-life 2,IMO this looks 10x times darker/better than MI,and mod basically speaks for itself,just look at some screenshots,you wont regret it ;)
3.Operation Black Mesa/Guard Duty (I placed these in the same entry as they are being made by the same company)
Moddb.com
Moddb.com
Ahh,Opposing force and Blue Shift Remakes.I tell you,these mods had one hell of an past....First they had bunch of developement team changes,then they said f**k it and they merged,reforming into Tripmine Studios.Now the mods are greenlight and will be released soon.They will still be free,though.But i assure you,It wouldn't hurt if you donated to the devs a few spare bucks and help them in this long developement cycle.I mean,just look at the Screnshots!The animations,the A.I of the enemies/allies,it is Perfect! I am telling you,i will play both of these mods as SOON as they come out,can't wait till i put on my badass fingerless gloves and return to Black Mesa once again as Adrian,or get into my security Boots and Suit and cover our Base From the future Xen invasion! These mods,no,all of mods should recieve attention,the developers pour their souls,put hundreds of hours of work and blood into their mods to ensure the top notch quality to their fellow gamer they can.Hell,most of these mods have content Better than AAA titles today! XD

So basically,support mods,they are great time,they existed in the past,in modern day,and they will exist in the future.Keep playing and making!

#modlove2015 ;).

Posted on reddit's r/gaming about G-string, a gem in the rough HL2 modding scene! Loved the atmosphere and large maps, storytelling and scenery, even in all of its "HL2 mod-era" roughly-polished glory!
