  • HL2 Mod: Eternal Silence

    The beta comes out in less than 24hrs. This game is a space flight/RTS/FPS mix. It's a half-life 2 mod, so you'll need valve's base game for this to run it.

    You take the role of a member of two opposing armies (when do you not in MP games?). You can be a fighter pilot in space helping to shuttle tropps to other ships, attacking other fighters, or attacking the individual weapons of capital ships. You can be a commander controlling said capital ship (immobile in beta, mobile in full game later on), attacking smaller vessels, telling your crew where to be, providing fighter craft for your pilots, etc. Or you can be a grunt, fighting within the bowels of your ship or the ship of your enemy.

    The game just pleases me greatly and I've been eagerly awaiting it. Hope to see some of you all there!

    EDIT:

    Hrm, you might want this: http://es.spawnpoint.com/splash/

      Can't seem to find a way into their main website right now, but they have a video of gameplay here. It shows off a bit of both the space and ground force gameplay.

        Yeah their main page is (wisely) down in preparation for the release at midnight tonight, but that video is much better than any screenshots they've released so far in terms of graphics and gameplay.

            Aero and I bumped into each other tonight on some random server trying this out. You can tell its a beta ;) but there are a lot of cool things going on here. The beta map really immerses you into being in the middle of freaking space, and the ship controls are pretty fun.

              It was okay, although it was disappointing to see the generic hl2 explosions here and there along with a few props.

              I really like how they used Hl2's "key help" system to show which keys do what when you hop in a ship, pretty handy. There seems to be some bugs with the text and I think the flamethrower secondary fire could use some visual improvement instead of just spraying decals with a heal wave on them.

              Overall not bad for a source mod, I'll have to play with it more.

                Loved it so much... words can not do it justice. I'm just a fan boy of space shooters I guess. It appealed greatly to my Freespace 2 roots :)

                Edit: oh and happy 100 posts, may I have may more in these hallowed halls.

                    Beat you to it.

                    It's a great game. Once they work some more things out, it will be even better. Might even steal me away from Dys.

                      That it will, has the best of the best idea's i've ever seen go into a HL2 mod... Everything on it is just completely awesome... Just need to work out a few kinks and optimise server usage/bugs.

                        New Beta Released.

                        Game seems to run much smoother now. More maps to play instead of just one tired map. TG potential is still growing strong with this game.

                            I've been playing this game for the past week, and it's pretty good. Although, I have a feeling that I wont be playing it very much after Friday this week... because that's when Dystopia version 1 comes out!!!
