New Half-Life 2 Eternal Silence

The Eternal Silence Website now offers a new version 2.1 patch for this Half-Life 2 modification. The new version adds a medic class and a couple of other new features, while also addressing some bugs. In addition to a new client patch, there is also a corresponding updated dedicated server.

The total dearth of HL2 mods is disappointing. Makes me sick to see as many empty CS:S servers as all other non-Valve HL2 mod servers combined.

PVKII and SourceForts are usually the only mods I notice as having a consistently decent number of players. SourceForts, however, is rife with elitists, so it's no wonder newbie penetration is so low. PVKII _looks_ very promising, but if they let people get too used to playing any one version, they'll suffer attrition that they can't afford.

As for ES: it's effectively dead. The first version was somewhat fun but extraordinarily buggy. The concept seems good, but some elements were poorly thought out (the big ion cannon was only any use _just_ as ships were landing, and then you were only able to kill the ones that couldn't land in a reasonable amount of time). I do applaud their efforts to bring some of the Battlefront 2 style of space combat to the Source engine--that was a great game that was, as is so familiar a tale, killed by Lucasarts' complete lack of support.

Pirates, Vikings and Knights II also has quite a lot of players all the time. More than Dystopia, I think.

Dystopia seems like the only mod so far to get consistently high numbers. Its first 'Final' release will be interesting. The version 4 Demo right now keeps pulling in the numbers which is surprising.

Figuring that part of the apathy to these mods is why there are fewer Total Conversions being embarked upon. I'm going to try this one, but like Iron Grip I fear that there will be no one playing. Fortunately I'm a sucker for cyberpunk so Dystopia is there when others aren't.

Looks like it's dead in the water - while it seems like a great concept, I didn't find more than 20 people on last night around prime time.

I'm not sure what they did but the game I tried to play the other night was unplayable. The previous release was buggy but nothing like this.

Too bad because this has the potential to be a very impressive mod.
