Post news Report article RSS Feed Mod DB Release Coverage

Attention all Mod DB developers! Find out how you can gain even more exposure on our site and beyond!

Posted by stenchy on Mar 4th, 2008

Since the release of v4, we have been looking for new ways to help developers in their quests to reach audiences to enjoy their creations. The newly christened 'Modcast' is just the first in list of changes and additions we are implementing. We are always looking for ways to put developers into the spotlight.

Effective immediately, the Mod DB staff is going to provide even more exposure for quality major releases of mods by listing them on the Flash-powered Rotator that appears above the news listings. The extra effort that many mod teams put into their projects and press releases should receive more attention. We want to help teams that do their best to capitalize on every tool, resource and service Mod DB offers.

This being said, there will be a few ground rules going forward that we will use to determine which releases warrant the extra attention:

  • Featured releases must be major releases with significant changes. No bugfixes or minor patches will be accepted.
  • News posts about releases must be well formatted (spelling!) and contain the following:
    1. Links to downloads of the latest release on's download section
    2. Media (screenshots/video) taken from latest release that is linked to the gallery for your mod's profile on (you can use the embed html code in the lower right hand corner seen in gallery pages)
  • Mods of varying sizes will be considered - everything from gameplay tweaks to full-out total conversions (alpha, beta, charlie, etc.) but the quality of the both the mod/game content and press release will be the main determining factors.

We believe that this presents a fair chance for all mods to showcase their works. At the same time, it provides gamers with quick easy access to the best mods with information that is easy to digest. So start proofreading and slapping some polish on those press releases and news posts, it could lead to a whole lot of extra heads turning your way.

If any of you mod teams out there want to drum up even more coverage and do a feature or pop onto the Modcast, drop me a PM and we'll chat.

Nice one working on helping out mods with getting more exposure. Not all mods (far too many of the smaller mods) have a hard time getting noticed, or simply don't make the effort.

Now they don't have to do too much in the way of PR to get an official Moddb endorsement.

I'm not one to speak, but I apparently lost a potential main page post because I misplaced a few words once:

"Mods of varying sizes will be considered - everything from gameplay tweaks to full-out total conversions (alpha, beta, charlie, etc.) but the quality of - the - both the mod/game content and press release will be the main determining factors."

The Both the. Theboththe. Sounds like a great name for a sci-fi character. I'll use it!

Good idea but it will make life harder for a person making their first mod as the big guys will be dominating them.
