Firearms: Source

The Firearms: Source Website has the debut release of the Firearms: Source modification for Valve's Source engine. Here's a portion of the description that conveys what this is all about: "Wondering what some of the key features of our mod are? Firearms: Source is a fast-paced, quasi-realistic, action-oriented, warfare-centric modification for Valve's Source engine. FAS doesn't keep you waiting around to respawn or running forever to get into the action; our whole focus is on keeping you in the midst of the most brutal and violent firefights you've ever seen in Half-Life 2, period." Thanks Elden.

I think that time frame is off, cs had betas out in June of 99.

Yea.... This is a great game, I really miss mods for fps games. Quake days were rad, half life 1 days were rad.... but hl source days aren't as rad :(, but this is a good game!

Just played for a couple of hours. Not bad. They have captured the flavor of the original. It still needs some balancing as well as adding a few features but its a good start nonetheless.

there's actually 2 "FA" mods in the works. I forget the name of the other but both have had an acrimonious relationship as to who's mod should be considered the "official" version.

But the first releases were not all that great, improved massively though. Ended up being one of the best mods around, valve never picked them up, so it's good to see they finaly made it through to the source engine.

Checking it out.
