NEOTOKYO and other SOURCE MODS

This is now a thread about Source mods, there's tons out there and I'm lazy so I'm quoting Meta:
Lets do this shit mother fuckers:

Dystopia: For being considerably less counter-strike than NEOTOKYO, class based shooter that involves hacking in a tron like zone separate the physical play space. If I remember usually involves attack and defend style maps. Rebels are attacking or whatever, Blue people are defending.

The Hidden: Terrifying team based shooter, with the opposition to said team being a lone 'experient-gone-wrong' invisible mother fucker who just has a knife, that can't be seen, along with his entire body. When the odds are stacked against "The Hidden" he gets pipe bombs that do plenty of damage but aren't good to kill healthy targets.

Pirates, Knights, & Vikings 2: usually TDM style or "Capture and Hold the Chests of Gold" maps, 3 teams of the 3 titles in the faction, kill the ever-loving shit out of each other. Pirates have guns but are skimpy little fucks, Knights are heavily armored shitmongers, and Vikings never gave a fuck in the first place + AXES.

Goldeneye: Source: Maybe not, but shit man FACILITY.

Insurgency: Its like battlefield without the vehicles and a lot more getting shot from ten miles away, kind of deal. Sim-like shooter based in iraq, mariners versus talibirds. I would rather we go for unseen waters in my next pick.

Resistance & Liberation: Extra realism WWII shooter, features no hud, crosshairs, or any bullshit. Fans of red orchestra rejoice.

Iron Grip: The Oppression: Basically the same idea of the steam release of IG:Warlords, but this time a player takes control of the emperor's army to squash freedom fighters that try to hold a city. Freedom fighters play in first person with a team of player's making up their ranks, goal is to kill the enemy officer. The "Rahmos" Officer is the leader kind of dude leading an army to occupy the rebel city, they can't die while taking the city or they lose. Good ole RTS VS FPS.

Zombie Master: Left 4 dead, but extra sketchy with a player acting as what you would now call "The Director", another RTS VS FPS affair.

I've played all of this shit except for RnL, which I really want to try so I threw a link in there. So I'm gonna be sitting on that till we drum up the numbers to play it.

OH, AND FUCK YOU META, NEOTOKYO IS AWESOME SO IF ANYONE ELSE IS INTERESTED, READ BELOW

What is NeoTokyo?

To quote the developers:
NEOTOKYO is a first person shooter that provides a visceral & realistic combat experience in a rich futuristic setting. It is greatly influenced by our admiration for Masamune Shirow (GHOST IN THE SHELL) and Katsuhiro Otomo (AKIRA), and has been in production since October 2004. To play NEOTOKYO you will need to have a STEAM account, and own the game HALFLIFE 2 or any game that gives you the Source SDK ...

The game seems to be kind of dead but myself and a couple of others were wanting to play this again and I'm going to use this thread to see if I can get enough interest to play at least a few rounds.
So it's an old Half-Life 2 mod? Why should I give a shit?

Because it's hella fun and awesome, that's why. Here, watch a couple of videos because I'm too lazy to explain.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOh3xYPrYF8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozC8dHrhRIs

That doesn't explain shit, I still don't get what's going on

Fine. It's a competitive game that has gameplay that's almost lifted straight from Counter Strike with a few key differences. It has a much more futuristic setting and as such has some neat shit like cloaking, infrared vision, motion vision, and a much more modern setting. The maps are also rather large (I think, it's been awhile since I played) and have multiple routes to get places and sometimes are confusing when you're new.

Okay, sounds kind of neat. Are there any helpful hints you have?

Sure, read this page here, it has some pretty good info.

Are those robot nipples?

Yes they are. Blame Japan.

So where can I download this game at?

They have quite a few links on their website. Download the neotokyo client download (july 3, 2008) and the neotokyo client patch 10.23.2009 (october 23, 2009). Make sure you have a Source engine game installed (I have L4D2 installed but TF2, HL2, etc. should work. Just as long as the game gives you access to the Source SDK) and then run the client .exe and afterwards the patch .exe.

Also, totally unrelated but the game has an amazing fucking soundtrack that you can check out right here (with links to buy). Like the page says, the mod comes with 13 of the songs (you'll find them as .mp3 files in the mod directory) but I recommend checking out the entire album if you enjoy those that come with the game.

SO, WHO WANTS TO PLAY WITH ME?

I'm in-game as Darmak and if anyone wants to play just post in this thread and we'll try and figure out a time to play together (I tend to only have time in the morning and after 11:00 PM CST).
Oh, and sorry for the terrible OP but I've never done this sort of thing before.

    Better than it used to be? Hell if I know, I just installed it last night and went to bed. I wouldn't think so though, the devs seem to have only put out one patch and everyone stopped playing it.

    but perhaps i'm mistaken.

    I played this for a little while.

    Got bored I think.

    Do people still play The Hidden? That mod could've been something else with some more effort.

    Had fun playing Zombie Master on here.

    There were other things where we did the things and it was smanging.

    They call this a "realistic combat experience" but the weapons never felt potent enough for me

    I thought the aesthetic was pretty neat though, maybe I should see what the latest version is like

    I think it opens up with time, but I feel like it's a lot harder for community mods to latch on the way they could 10 years ago.

    That works too since there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in NeoTokyo. However, I'm too lazy to make a new OP so if someone wants to do so and send me the code I'll paste it in and change the thread title.

    I'll never understand why this mod gets so much attention. I've played a lot of mods for HL1 and 2 in my time and this one failed to stand out in anyway possible. The gunplay is as average and mediocre as possible.

    It has nice concept art and music I guess?

    in still shots and in concept art, sure. but in motion its very bland. doesn't help all the weapons basically look the same and are impossible differentiate, which is sorta problem with the game itself as in nothing standing out
