INTRODUCTION

Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed offers a ruthlessly unforgiving tactical FPS experience by maximizing realism in every aspect of the game. Weapons match their real-life counterparts in accuracy, effectiveness, and handling. AI displays terrifying acumen in trying to outmaneuver you. Missions take place in open-world locations and are entirely nonlinear, with a minimum of scripted events and utmost randomization, for infinite replayability.

Heroes Unleashed pushes tactical realism to the extreme, setting it light years apart from anything you are accustomed to in today’s ubiquitous action shooters. One shot can kill. There is no magical healing, fantasy gear, sci-fi enemy markers, handholding, or guide towards certain victory. It is just you and your squad, on your own behind enemy lines, with caution as your best bet to survive.

Whether you choose to play online or alone, with friends or AI, Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed delivers a rivetingly realistic squad-based military combat you won’t find anywhere else.

Welcome to the Editor's Choice awards for the 2018 Mod of the Year Awards, where we show recognition to the mods from the past year that we've found to be personally deserving of attention.


Best Singleplayer

A mod which brings extra depth or significance to an engrossing singleplayer experience.

Fallout: New California

For: Fallout: New Vegas



Fallout: New California adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a journey through the wastelands of the New California Republic's Cajon Pass. An unofficial prequel to New Vegas, FPB adds hours of new gameplay and a fully voiced stand alone campaign.


Best Multiplayer

A mod which offers a new way to play with your friends.

Quake Champions: Doom Edition

For: Doom II



QC: Doom Edition is a mod that brings the weapons from the latest Quake game, into Doom, with delicious pixelated flavor. More than just weapons, it also brings the “Champions” mechanic -- different player classes, each one with unique status, speed, active and passive abilities.


Best Graphical Overhaul

A mod which focuses on beatifying an older game with technical and artistic upgrades.

Doom Slayer Chronicles

For: Doom II



Doom Slayer Chronicles is the most beautiful and technologically advanced mappack for Doom2 singleplayer. Doom Slayer Chronicles (DSC) compatible with all known gameplay mods for Doom2. The DSC takes advantage of the newest features of gzdoom, such as hardware shaders, full-screen post-processing, PBR textures (normals and specular maps, also often called "bump mapping"), high-resolution textures, and of course dynamic lighting.


Best Classic Revival

A mod which takes a previously-existing modification and upgrades and enhances it for 2018.

Black Mesa: Azure Sheep

For: Black Mesa



An unofficial remake of a singleplayer mod "Azure Sheep" for Half-Life 1. With great exclusion, everything that does not correspond to the canons of the original game will be cut out. Demo is OUT!


Best Crossover

A mod which smashes two or more completely separate games together

to make something unique and special.

Year of the Dragon

For: Half-Life



A crossover mod and toolkit featuring the mechanics and play style of Spyro the Dragon ... I thought about several things I could do like making a fan game in a engine like Unity or Unreal, but I've always enjoyed using Goldsrc and Xash3D so I thought about the challenge of getting this purple dragon into Half-Life. And from there the mod pretty much came to life.


Totality Award

This award is for a total conversion that transforms a game into something completely distinct and new

Total Chaos

For: Doom II



Total Chaos is a total conversion mod for Doom 2 that runs on the GZDoom source port. The mod is a survival horror set on a remote island known as Fort Oasis. The island was once run by a community of coal miners which one day suddenly disappeared, leaving behind the abandoned concrete jungle to waste away.


Expansion-worthy Award

This is a mod that we wouldn't be surprised to see as an official expansion,

or be worth paying money for.

SYSTEM SHOCK: ReWired

For: System Shock



System Shock: Rewired is the very first full fan made singleplayer campaign for the original System Shock in over 24 years! 3 brand new levels with branching paths, 4 new cyberspace sections, new puzzles, brand new soundtrack by SpeedySPCFan, new fully voiced audiologs, new on-screen text and so much more awaits in the now dark corridors of the hospital ship UNN Bismarck.


Best Adaptation Award

A mod that uses the story or universe of a film or television properly to

accurately recreate its world and vibe

Star Trek: Armada 3

For: Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion



Star Trek: Armada III - The Final Frontier begins with the first stirrings of the Dominion War and allows players to take command of five unique factions, the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Star Empire, the Cardassian Union/Dominion Alliance, and the Borg Collective. Explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before.


Historical Accuracy Award

A mod that dives into a period of history rarely touched upon by other games,

and does so with great attention to detail

Screaming Steel: 1914-1918

For: Day of Infamy


Fight in the rain soaked trenches or charge over No Man’s Land to battle in the War to End All Wars. Use authentic weaponry to conquer the enemy, call in artillery strikes to take out enemies en masse, and don’t forget that teamwork is essential for the final victory! Screaming Steel: 1914-1918, previously known as WW1: Source is a total-conversion project being developed by devoted modders for the FPS game Day of Infamy.


Continuing Legacy Award

A mod that takes a game from a franchise abandoned or ended by its original

developers and continues the series in a new and interesting direction

Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

For: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon


Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed, the ruthlessly unforgiving tactical shooter experience. True hardcore realism, with nonlinear play, real-world physics, and ultra smart AI. Infinite replayability, with tons of worldwide maps, missions, game types, international special forces units, and a massive arsenal of authentic weapons and equipment.


Most Anticipated

A mod which, though not yet released, has spent 2018 building incredible anticipation for it

Lordbound

For: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim



A massive story expansion for Skyrim with 30+ hours of original content. Visit the valley of Druadach and embark on an epic quest to bring peace to this war-torn region. The mod adds a new region, three faction questlines, non-linear quests, dungeons, new weapons/armor and more. Your actions will determine the fate of Druadach Valley. For better... or for much worse.


Sponsor Award

Special award presented by mod.io, for a game that has embraced modding,

is growing a great community and we look forward to seeing what's to come in 2019.

Aground

By: Fancy Fish Games

Just started playing the mod, beat like 3 missions, and I just wanted ask something.

Each soldier has like 350 kits or whatever, but it honestly feels like, in a game like this, anything without a scope that can magnify is just straight up inferior. Enemies notice you from so far away and basically instakill with one shot. Like, seriously. It feels like the only options from the kit selection worth picking are the first 10, because at least that primary weapon actually lets you zoom in an exceptional distance, and lets you be able to reliably aim and fire at targets, unlike everything else, where you'd have better luck trying to hit a fly with a dart than trying to aim and hit at the 3 pixels kms off in the distance.

Can I ask, what am I doing wrong here? I know there's no way that this creator of this mod put in all that effort to make so many kits usable only to have 99% of them be worthless comparatively, so I need to know, in what situations would I use the other kits that only have weapons WITHOUT these high powered scopes? I honestly can't really see any meaningful difference between all the various assault rifles (all fire bullets quickly and accurately), so why wouldn't I just pick the option that actually lets me see what I'm shooting? Same applies to all the kits with primary weapons that AREN'T assault rifles. Like, why choose anything with a shotgun/grenade launcher as a primary if I can get it as a secondary and have a far, FAR more generally effective weapon in my primary slot? Everything dies in one shot regardless most of the time, so like, why not always have the primary choice be a weapon that has a higher clip, far more range, and faster firing speed, ESPECIALLY when the other choices can still be taken as secondaries anyway? Heck, the support class as a whole feels kinda useless due to this reason, with no magnification scopes or anything.

Also, is there any way for me to command individual soldiers to go/stay somewhere instead of having them always follow me? Probably not, but figure it was worth asking.

Thank you.

Thank you for this awsome mod ! but too many weapons ;-) it will take a long time to test all of them ... xD

I'm just disapointed by the removal of the radar... usefull to find the last ennemis on the map ...

a good torrent is rarbg.to but it is sensored by the DNS of my internet provider...

Check the documentation and the XTRAS folder. You can customize almost everything, incl. restoring the radar / threat indicator / hud compass. There’s also a torrent for the mod at archive.org (https://archive.org/details/heroes-unleashed-v-101.7z). I‘m busy with the next update, hopefully ready by the end of the year. It‘s going to be... huge. :)

I’m on Mac, so not an expert. Maybe try updating graphics drivers. You can head over to Ghostrecon.net and I’m sure our folks can sort this out for you.

Thanks for the reply. I actually found out the solution. Enabling the cursor tracing animation on window setting helped.

I had to come back to this mod so I can review. There really aren't any words to explain how much I love this mod. It should probably be called Ghost Recon Perfected. It adds all the ghost recon content in one whole Mod then adds as a ton of more content on top of that. This mod and the ARMA series are just about the only two realistic tactical shooters I only play. This one shoots at 2nd on my list. With the new XL XXL mission types I can have even more fun! The amount levels make an endless server…
