Modding News

  • Red Twilight has a some renders and screens up.
  • Tiberian Sun Rising also has some new renders up, including one of the famed Mammoth MKII.
  • Continuing the render theme, Cold War Crisis has a bunch of their reworked Su-27 flanker.
  • Halogen has been shut down by Microsoft (looks like someone's planning a Halo RTS sooner or later). Here's a note from the Halogen team:
    Hours ago, we finally recieved the words we've been dreading since the mod started to get noticed. Microsoft has decided that we are infringing on the intellectual property of Bungie Studios and has asked us to stop development on Halogen.

    I was going to write a big sappy letter here, but what's the point. So..that's it then, I guess. The forums, site, and Moddb profile will all be shut down within the week. I can't say it hasn't been fun. It's a shame it has to end like this, but I suppose that's how it goes. Thanks, guys, for all the time you've spent supporting us. It's been a pleasure. We hate this as much as you do.
  • Well, that certainly is a shame, but you can see where it makes a bit of sense from M$'s standpoint. These guys were modifying the game of a competitor with Microsoft's intellectual property. Where the roles reversed, I'm sure EA would have done the same, and probably early on in the process.
