Half-Life 2: Eternal Silence

The Eternal Silence Website offers the first beta release of this modification for Half-Life 2. Word is: "Eternal Silence is a science fiction mod for Half-Life 2 which pits two capital ships against each other in a seamless blend of space warfare and tactical infantry combat. These two teams race to destroy each other in the depths of space. Pilots coordinate strikes with invading infantry in order to take down the behemoth capital ships from both the inside on-foot and the outside with spaceships. Full of fast-paced action both in space and on foot, Eternal Silence offers a seamless blend of two exciting genres." They offer downloads of the game client as well as Windows and Linux dedicated servers, and a trailer showing off gameplay for the curious.

that Nuclear Dawn mod is supposed to have RTS style features for the commander mode

As is Iron-Grip, which sounds like its going to drop a bit sooner.

What's taking Natural Selection: Source so damn long to come out?

I can't help but compare every mod to NS. That game just blew my mind when it came out and nothing's come close since. If half assed mods like Eternal Silence have taken this long I'm sure NS Source is years away. I can't believe Flayra has failed to get financial backing for a full game:-(

MP's never been my thing. Yeah yeah...must be a lone world for me in regards to PC gaming these days.

Ditto. After Tribes, nothing else could really live up.

"Call me crazy, but would not being an infantry man on a enemy ship and your mission is to destroy itů.does that not mean when you win you die and lose?"

I don't know about future maps, but in the one they released today you are just capturing the enemy ship, not destroying it.

I tried to like this mod and I just couldn't. The ship controls are horrible and laggy, and the marine section plays a lot worse than the similar Dystopia mod. It's a good idea, but the implementation fails miserably.

Meh, not to plink away at the fun of Eternal Silence (if it is indeed fun for those who play), but I'd rather see some single player addons come out for HL2. MP's never been my thing. Yeah yeah...must be a lone world for me in regards to PC gaming these days.

Played it a bit earlier though it was hard to get a feel for the gameplay because no one had any idea what to do. Didn't help that one of the official servers had glitched and only one team was getting fighter spawns.

I did find one decent server later on and it wasn't bad, but it seems to me that most of the fighting will be done in space (the capital ships were pretty small).

Of course it's also Beta 1. I remember CS back in the early days when you could gun-peddle and it only got better. I'll be keeping an eye on this one. Now if only the hull-breach guys would spit something out.
