The History of the SMOD Community with OneManShow
« on: January 15, 2015, 01:50:43 AM »
We sat down with JuanManShow, creator of SMOD Redux and talked about the History of the (English speaking) SMOD Community and how the mod was discovered by Facepunch users, the first SMOD mods, SMOD Multiplayer, Close Contact, the rise and fall of the Tactical forums and everything in between.

A 50 min oral history with some ranting in between.

well that was interesting.
One sounded gay though haha joke!

hl2 modding scene as of today ain't totally bad, there are some new releases using some new source engine.
hl modding was definitely more productive during it's hey days and CS plugins are still way more advance compared to
CSS plugins but their getting there.


the demise of smod tactical to my understanding seems the classic case like what happen to any mods that gets too much attention is when every one wants to be the boss, so it's bound to self destruct. I saw the forum once and the next day it was shut down, but tnc god I saw an alternative that's was way way way better but took me some time to get it running but it was all worth it. Mods seems have better initial success or longevity when there's just one guy or 2 making it.
