forget the doom and gloom...
has there ever
many mods/maps being made (and finished!) for the older cods?!
awe,ace,star wars, rgn vietnam, namwaw, ax_base assault, demon, OW, rising etc etc etc.....
IW may have tried
to screw the PC community...
all i see is us giving them the finger!
long may it continue!
But so many "big name" modders retired - Bulletworm gone, Tally gone, Marc from ACE gone, the Openwarfare team (probably the largest mod in the COD community) gone.
There may be a few projects going on, but I truely fear for the future of COD modding. It's all up to Treyarch, but if their next outing is crap, or doesnt capture the imagination, or doesnt have dedicated servers, then I say its all over bar the Fat Lady singing.
This site, and many others, will be like a Ghost Town (notice how quite it is already?). Old titles may be good for the beginner looking for a challenge, but for those of us who dont see a challenge in them, we look to something new. And what if one doesnt come along?
I had hoped that BC2 would introduce mod tools somewhere down the line, and now it sounds like they "may" release some later on in the year. But without dedicated servers, how the hell would you test your mod? Also, with the ranked server system, who would play them?
The same applies to the new Medal of Honor - if its like Battlefield and has the ranked servers system and no dedicated servers files, whats the point in mod tools?
No, my friend. The doom and gloom remains until that elusive Saviour of the modding community comes along.
