It has been our dirty little secret for a while now, but for those unaware Mod DB v3 will be launched this Saturday the 3rd of December at 10pm PST.

So... what has changed?
Whilst v2 has grown phenomenally over the past year, we do occasionally receive an email with suggestions for improvement. Over the past few months we collated all these emails, identified features we want to see and have made them so. Here is a few of the more notable changes:

  • New site theme (sleek, gameified, red on black layout)
  • Much more organized site layout with the site essentially broken into four: areas
    • Browse - mods, galleries, downloads
    • Read - news, features, awards
    • Develop - tutorials, help wanted, getting started
    • Discuss - forums, comments, polls
  • Tabbed profiles with MUCH MUCH more details
  • Enhanced search across all areas of the site

Is there going to be a paaaartaaay? The site will be going down for 1 to 2 hours during the deployment.. so what better time is there to throw an IRC shindig / chat / speculate / flame. Join in on the action by following these simple steps

  • Get an IRC Client running (mIRC is a good option)
  • Connect to irc.gamesurge.net and the channel #moddb by clicking here
  • Thats it, your done, v!

Teasers...
Here are a few shots to wet your appetite as well as a promotional poster. Stay tuned, there is much much more to come!!
