    Guys, the links below may fail for you, given the attention Empires' site is getting post-release. See post #15 of this thread for a mirror to the client download (follow the directions in the post exactly). Post #24 also has a direct link to Empires' forums, if the link below fails.

    See Post #32 for a Tactical Gamer hosted client download.

    Mod for hl2

    Two teams fight each other, they each get a commander
    The players purchase the vehicles, but the command can lock that to specific players

    As the game progresses, upgrades will be available in many forms to players. Normal players can be promoted in rank and given command of a squad of infantry (consisting of either human players or bots or a combination of both), given custom abilities such as the scout's ability to hide almost completely from enemy sight, and given upgraded attributes such as improved weapon handling. Upgrades will also become available to vehicles and aircraft in the form of improved weapons, ammo, armor, and engines.
    The commander can lock his team's factories for either specific players or everyone so that only players specifically designated may build vehicles and aircraft, or he can leave them unlocked so that players can walk into the factory and purchase a unit.
    Maintenance tunnels are not built by the team's commander but are instead automatically created during building construction to link buildings together for the sharing of electricity and geothermal gases. Due to its role of connectivity, it can serve as a safe passage to move from building to building within a base that is under siege, but it can also be utilized by enemy units for the purpose of guerilla attacks from within an enemy base. Without careful monitoring by a patrol unit or remote sensory equipment, it can also serve as an easy means of infiltration by utilizing a passing geothermal vent to dig into an enemy maintenance tunnel and create a stealthy entrance into the enemy base.
    The command gets picked by his team before the match starts.

    Any chance of seeing this hosted here?

              Looks interesting but:
              Q: When will Empires for Half-Life 2 be available for download?
              A: No exact date is scheduled, but we will hold closed testing until we have a playable alpha version ready to be downloaded by the public. Then we will begin making releases available to the public.

                          Wow this mod looks awesome. If this is as good as it looks I might buy HL2 just to play it.
