If you look at EF2Files' latest 50 Files, we notice that the majority of files are for EF1. The question is why? EF2 is a much more recent game and was better than EF1 in every single way possible. EF2 had a much more diverse SP storyline, and many maps can be made from that without forcing a mapper to make new textures for those maps.

So my ultimate question is, why is EF2's modding community close to nonexistent and why is EF1's still kicking butt? and Why are not EF1 modders modding/mapping for EF2?

That isn't really true, the multiplayer in EF2 is rubbish compaired to EF1. And the multiplayer eliment is what keeps a games longtivity.

Personally I agree with NCC1701Z, that EF2 is a better game in any way, but most people didn't like the EF2 multiplayer, just as FileTrekker said and it's true that only the multiplayer keeps a game alive. Another problem for EF2 modders is, that 3ds max is the only program that can handle the EF2 format for models. As you can imagine, there's hardly anyone who would (or could) spend that much money for game modding.

Well, EF2 runs on a Q3 engine and someone is bound to make a mod sooner or later, for EF2.. I remember someone saying that.. I just hope this comes tru..

There is a mod coming out for EF2 (a few mods actually, but this one isn't far from completion). It's called A Gate, Two Birds and the Beautiful Sky. http://www.gate-birds-sky.org I helped a little on two of the maps there a while ago, but it's still going on and most of the maps are nearing completion (I think they're start beta testing soon). It's an SP mod with 10 maps in total, and it's got one of the main characters from the Colony 7 mod for EF1 back as the person you play as (Illia Ericcson).
