For me :
(Green = Ut2K4 mod, Red = HL2 mod, Blue =UT2k7 Mod)

  • Nosferatu (free standalone)
    Description : pits vampires against slayers in a dark, Gothic setting.

    Why it's good
    -It's free
    -Features an wide variety of weapons.
    -It's graphics are the best of both worlds : they're good, but not exactly next gen, so you won't have a problem running it.
    -It's got dual wielding.
    -Two very distinct sides to play as.
    -RPG system with improvable skills.
    -Excellent production values.
    -Weapon attachments.
    -Flexible bullet penetrations system.

    official site with more info, forums, in-game videos and more

    Image

    In general, I'de have to say that Nosferatu looks to out-do many commercial games.

    =============================================
  • Supreme Commander
    Description: This game is the spiritual successor to Total Annihilation, a game widely regarded as the best RTS of all time. It walks in TAs footsteps, adding many innovations, such as enormous maps. It also appears to have done many other aspects very well (such as interface) which is saying something these days.
    Why it's good
    -Huge maps.
    -3 distinct races.
    -Hundreds of units and structures.
    -Colossal units (which can even carry other units!)
    -newtonian physics model calculates the trajectory of projectiles as they move through the air, taking into account the whole game world. In other words, none of that instant hit stuff in games like Star craft.
    -Three unique factions with unique and diversified technologies.
    -Large scale combat on the greatest scale to date.
    -Two resources: mass and energy.
    -Avoids the trends of games that are based on hotkey navigation and mouse click contest, macrobuilding, map-resource war, land grab, etc. It’s a game that requires the player to employ actual strategy to win.
    -Zoom is not limited to being on top of your units instead you can zoom out to satellite view to employ strategic commands on the battlefield.
    -Huge maps that can span four square kilometers of rendered space.
    -Multi-click orders - when issuing an attack order, your units respond differently based on the frequency of clicks. Example: (one click) - attack unilaterally, (two clicks) - "all available units attack a single structure but only fire enough to destroy it", (three clicks) - Everyone destroy it immediately!
    -Many interesting units, like a mobile shield generator (think Episode 1 gungan battle scene ; ;) )
    -Buildings can be linked together for increased production.
    -Each Dot in satellite view = 1 formation. Formations can range from small, to massive scale. (i.e. 5, 50, 500+)

    Fan Sites[/b]
    Supreme Commander HQ
    Screenshot here

    Supreme Commander will probably eclipse it's predecessor, replacing it as the best RTS of all time. ;)
    Official Site with more media info

    ==============================================
  • STALKER
    Description: STALKER takes place in an alternate post apocalyptic version of the Chernobyl disaster. You go throughout the land in search of the secret.

    Think the premise sounds a bit dry? Yeah well, so did I until I saw the videos... ;)
    [u]Why it's Good
    -Enormous arsenal of 40 weapons, each a secondary firing mode.
    -The ability to upgrade your weapons and equipment, via trading with other characters in the world. Sounds neat, huh?
    -Completely open 50 KM^2 environment.
    -Non scripted AI yields a different game play experience.
    -Your actions influence the persistent game world.
    -Absolute freedom of movement, with no loading times whatsoever.
    -Dynamic day and night system as well as weather, each of which impacts gameplay.
    -Excellent graphics, courtesy of an impressiveDX9 renderer.

    STALKER looks to be the best FPS of 2006 hands down. Need more proof, check out the official site.

I am waiting for Alliance. No other game has me nearly as enthralled as Alliance.

The only mods I'm waiting for are the following:

The Trenches 1.1
A WWI mod for Half Life I. A major release has been delayed for almost a year now. It's going to be unbelievable. Has the Webley, but the animations are a little buggered and the standard skin is too grey.

www.thetrenches.net




Distraction Mod
A mod for HL2 that is supposed to be a mix of The Specialist and Action Half Life. Haven't convinced the Devs to add the Webley.

www.distraction-mod.com




Ham and Jam
Basically Day of Defeat Source with only Brits and Germans. Also supposed to be more realistic. Has the Webley.

www.hamandjam.org


As Bigdaddy also mentioned, Forgotten Hope 2.

From the makers of Hidden and Dangerous 2. Features include digging trenches, forest fires and climbing trees.

I know about 80% of the mod team for Off-Limits mod and about 95% of the skinning/modelling team therein.

Alot of them used to be big names in the Counter-Strike modification community of which I also used to be a fairly well-known name therein.

That Enemy in Sight mod looks tits.

I recently discovered Parabellum, an Unreal 3 powered counter terrorist shooter. Yeah, I know. How original, huh? Oh well. I don't have any problem with it, as long as it gets done well. It seems like pretrty soon, ther will be games of, every imaginabl, genere running under Unreal 3. When I saw the tech demo 2 years ago, I knew that this was to be expected.

Anyhow, they just released a Trailer and it looks really nice. Apprarantly, you can switch ammo types on the fly and each ammo type has different penetration capabilities. Oh yeah, the game also has well.. I'm not gonna say it.. Try and guess what I was gonna say. :wink: \

I'm looking forward to quite a few of those myself, and I've heard of all but one or two.

I would like to point out though, Badge of Blood is no longer an HL2 modification.

Right now I am pretty content with what I have. I've gotten quite a few good games stacked up I haven't really had the time to
actually play through yet. There is one game I am actively anticipating though, and I am sure you all know which one game
that would be. 8-)


Off topic but I had to ask -
Silent, I've been around with Half-Life before it was even released (Quiver anyone?) but have never entered the mod community
at all. You yourself seem vaguely familiar, been awhile since I've been on any forums; Do you happen by chance to know Pete
the skinner (now also models), Or mike- The animator?
