Ok I'm shocked I missed this... These guys remade Total Annihilation but with their own custom 3D engine. At first you might be forgiven for thinking it looks like Supreme Commander, but from the comments and info I've seen it plays much more like TA, something that people got pissy about Supreme Commander since it was kinda different. Awesome mod conversion. And this made in 2007.





Whats cooler is they've used this engine to make other things, including a star wars mod style amongst others. Just click on the Games section at their website.

Fallout 2 restoration project.. I didnt even know there was such a thing. Seems to add in heaps of stuff that was cut from the game. I so need to play this again sometime. When I do I plan to use this.


Depending on the type you want theres an RAR version and an EXE version.

The purpose of this mod is to add back into the game all the content that was originally planned by the Fallout 2 developers. You will find about 6 new locations (some quite large, other smaller) as well as a few new areas to old locations. In addition, almost every town in the game has new content whether it is new characters, quests, or items. Playing this will definitely be a new experience.

Now heres one that makes me all squishy inside...


Quote:
The Bloodlines Revival Project is a community effort to update the original Vampire Bloodlines game, bringing it to the current Source engine.

To achieve this, a dedicated team of hobbyists are working on converting the original content into the new engine. This has the following benefits:

* Fixing all of the bugs still found in the original games (the original developers were only able to release one patch - it's up to us!)

* Among these bugs were slowdowns, bad framerates, quest issues, graphical problems/glitches, and a serious control issue present for most people that locks up all controls for several moments periodically.

* To bring the fans of the game an SDK to work with

* This allows fans to make their own Bloodlines content - maps, textures, quests, npcs - anything and everything
So far they've done some of the stages. For anyone whos played the original they should be able to see straight away the textures are much more detailed, lighting is better, reflections look amazing, just lots of stuff. I really cant wait to see what they do with the models. The day this thing comes out I'm replaying this game for the third game. One of the best games EVER made.

It was awesome. All the playable characters were totally different to each other. NO CHARACTER created compares to the Malkavian class. The music owned. Character dialogue rocked. Missions were great. Story was great. Blended fps/3rd person action and rpg together better than almost any game before or after it. It fucking owned. And the Mansion is one of the scariest places ever in a game.

Awesome. I'll deffinatly put it on my list when the mod is done.

And on a side note I installed Natural Environments, Qarls texture pack 3.0, and HGEC body mod for Oblivion and oh my god does the game look gorgous now. I always thought it looked great even on xbox but this is just sick. I'm falling in love with it all over again.

It never looked that good. Textures were always smeary and the character models were a bit tragic. The mods really made the game shine. Sadly theres no mod to improve the shitty game itself.

The only problem I really had with it was the odd way the enemies leveled with you. I remember at a certain point I could wail away at an enemy with a sword while invisilbe and it just wouldn't do any worthwhile damage. I had to use mega spells.

I'm hoping that Morrowind mod turns into a full recreation. That would be awesome.

Decided to buy the Orange box on Steam and download the Cinematic conversion mod. I couldn't believe it was almost 10 gigs. I couldn't only imagine putting that kind of work into something simply as a labor of love.

PC gamers are insane is why. But you really should play it through without the mod first time. Second time you can appreciate it so much more.
