I picked up Half Life 2 back when it was first released, played the heck out of the single player game, played around with DM when it was first released, and then I sort of let the game fall off my gaming radar. Until now. So here I am, completely lost as to what are the hot (if any) new DM maps I need to be checking out, what MODs I should install, and what I should be keeping my eye on in terms of things coming up in the community. There seems to be a lot of stuff, but I don't want to waste my time with crap (which I know is relative to opinion), so I'm hoping some of you guys can point me in the right direction so I can get up to speed. Thanks!
I dunno what are the best maps for DM, don't particularly play it.
But one of the mods you should download would probably have to be Plan Of Attack. Just look for it on HL2files.com.
I dont knwo of any good DM maps but i know that for a good mod you should download Eclipse...it's the best mod I've played yet :)
It's a very professional mod but it's not my cup of tea...
A few other good mods are:
No More Room in Hell: An excellent zombie MP mod that's been in development for a bit now. There may be a release by the end of this year, not sure.
Valandil: A middle ages, fantasy based mod, Valandil has 1st person sword combat, along with bows, crossbows, etc. It looks pretty good. Another multiplayer mod.
The Hidden- Source: An excellent MP mod that already has a release, The Hidden pits an invisible mutant against a team of marines, who's objective is to elminate the Hidden.
Sounding very cool, checking out Dystopia now.
mods that should be checked out: Plan of attack (MP) eclipse (SP advised dl) HL2: instagib (MP) HL2: substance (SP, for a harded difficulty) HL2: CTF (MP) garrys mod (for the hell of it =D, sandbox mod) Hidden source (MP, Extremely well done, advised dl) Stargate Brokenoeth(MP and possibly SP, keep a look out for release, should be good) and thats about all worth looking at...but then of cause i could be wrong, these are just the ones i will advise looking at really well done they are... =D
