Game & Mod Development

This is not usually a section that demands bullets:

  • Half-Life 2
    Softimage Expands Game Development Suite With New 'Mod' Tool (thanks HomeLAN Fed) now offers the SOFTIMAGE®|XSI® Mod Tool -- a free version of their 3D animation software, "designed for gamers who are interested in modifying the content of popular video games." The new release offers Half-Life 2 support.
  • Star Wars: Battlefront
    The Star Wars: Battlefront modification tools are now available, offering the opportunity to create new levels for Pandemic's Star Wars shooter as an unsupported release. The 411 MB download is available on 3D Gamers and FilePlanet (registration required). Thanks Ant and Voodoo Extreme.
  • Chronicles of Riddick
    Also, Starbreeze Studios now offers downloads of a new version of the Ogier Starbreeze level editor and multitool. Word is: "Ogier has support to edit content for Enclave, Knights of the Temple and The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. It also have some limited level-editing support for Quake." Thanks Frans.
  • Richard Burns Rally
    Blackhole Motorsports now offers downloads of a 3DSmax car model exporter for Richard Burns Rally.
  • Xpand Rally
    The Xpand Rally Website now offers the full documentation for the Xpand Rally editor. Thanks Frans.

I installed this thing a few weeks ago. It writes literally thousands of entries into your registry. If you use a registry cleaner like Norton, it sees these as being "orphaned" and wants to delete them, which in turn makes the editor crash. And when you uninstall the editor, it does not clean-up after itself.

Softimage could have done a much better job here - this thing acts like some kind of hack-job in-house software (can you say "Radiant"?), not a subset of a quality retail product.

It's sad that RBR is the better game than XPand, and yet, SCi is really screwing up on supporting it. Christ they haven't even released it in the states yet, 3 months beyond release. :-\ Way to screw a good thing, SCi.

It's probably easiest to go to the Valve resource site - that seems to be where most modders congregate.

I think it's:

Anyone know of a comprehensive list of mods that are in the works for HL2?
