The next version of this mod is going to be released at around 4 pacific over Steam today (Friday the 6th). It's an HL2 space combat mod and it is absolutely awesome. Everyone needs to give it a shot. It reminds me of space combat in battlestar galactica or star wars. Just be warned it has a bit of a learning curve, but nothing as bad as ESF.

I've tried it, but it's not really my thing 100%. It's fun to play at start, but grown bored out of it later on because I get / got to be shot down every time ^_^. I haven't played it in a while, so it might have been changed (features / bugs, etc). It sucks that Steam won't host Half-Life 1 mods through their system.

Yeah, I haven't gotten into it since I pretty much mostly play TF2 :p But yeah, it's like an awesome fusion of the gameplay of Star Wars Battlefront 2 in the space combat, only expanded to make boarding much more useful and spacecombat more difficult since you've got humans and not incompetent AI. Visually, it reminds me of Galactica or Babylon 5.

What version of the mod did you guys play? The mod changed pretty drastically in each of their versions.

In other news, Dystopia was also released over steam

Seems very good, I would try it out if I had hl2, but i'll only buy it when Berimbau or BlackMesa come out.

Would have kept going a while without being killed had we not won




And of course


I only throw this pic in there to give spunky a hard time. Spunky was still learning the game in that pic.

The modification's stupid naming is enough of a reason for me not to try it. Titles need to be simpler ffs, whether it's a game, or a movie. Movies and games are remembered for what happens in them, not for their deep emo titles ;_; Take "Memento" and "Fight Club" for example; two of cinema's greatest films, one with a nice name, and the other with a simple name. We need more simple titles! "Space Battles" hasn't been used yet :0 (Come to think about it, think i'm gonna copyright that for the future). We need titles like "Vaginatown", where the intro scene is a giant wall of penises. DISCUSS!

Ignoring your Californication reference, which was awesome, I am of the opposite opinion there.

Yeah, Californication rocks. Just wanted to create a post in which i could mention Vaginatown with a context without being off-topic :<

The only thing that usually kills me is either a flak/missile corvette, or two or more people attacking me at once. It's difficult to evade fire while you're trying to keep your own line of fire on a target.

Edit: Oh and those giant pew pew lasers you see there. Those hurt.

I hate trying to deal with two people at once, it's hard as hell.

I've had three people gang up on me at once and killed them all before. It's not easy but if you pull it off, it gives you major wood.

I wish there were clans and matches in this game, though. I want to play people who are actually good.
