The Forgotten Mods

Recommended Posts

At one time there were so many cracking mods coming out that it was hard to keep up, certainly we never had a chance to properly review them all.

I think its time some of the little guys got some recognition. Sure there are some huge mods that received thousands of downloads, but there are some little nuggets of gold in the download section that have not received the recognition they deserve.

Take a little walk through our mod vault and see if there are you can recall enjoying, that never really got the limelight.

I'm going to start it off with American Civil War by Mamon. 

This poor little mod didn't even have a screenshot on its download entry! I fixed that today though!

Some great moments in this mod, that I am still enjoying. I'll put up a highlight reel soon....

A civil war mod?! Sign me up! Keep posting people. I LOVE mods. Funny how a game over 15 years old is still better than 95% of the stuff coming out today.

I made a short movie, didn't really do it justice, but I hope it encourages people to try it out!

Talking about "little" mods, here's another noteworthy gem from back when, with less than 100KB in download size. A single mission (SP, MP COOP, server-side) created by en4rcment. Once you inspect the ReadMe and then step onto the mod's battlefield, you can immediately tell that it's been a labor of love for the author. A great little mod!

Disavowed is a challenging mission featuring a realistic amount of enemies placed into careful patrols and defensive posts.  While stealth is definitely recommended, there will be some spectacular firefights as well...

New features of this mission include:

- An actual "ride-in" insertion (non-cinematic)
- Calling in air support.
- A cinematic extract for SP
- Some specialist kits have been reworked to provide you with SD weapons.

Another little treasure I dug up in our Ghost Recon mod vault is Solid Snake's Quake 3 Weapon Mod.

Adding the futuristic weaponry from sci-fi shooter legend Quake 3, this isn't your typical GR weapons add-on. A fun addition to our beloved game, nonetheless! :)

So, if you feel like equipping your Ghost Recon operators e.g. with an out-of-this-world railgun, want to attack your enemies with lasers, or bombard them with plasma projectiles, head over to our download section and grab this extraordinary Ghost Recon addition here.

One of the little gems I loved back at the origin is Riot in Belgrad by -wH- bEnDeR.

A single mission, quite simple in its essence with a music taken from Gladiator (if I'm not mistaken). However I think to recall it wasn't udpated for patch 1.3/1.4

GR: ZAPAD-81 by Varible13

http://www.ghostrecon.net/files2/index.php?act=view&id=1282

IT has been awhile since I played this but I kept it in my archive and played it with friends so it is worth playing.
It has a base mod and then an addon and a patch. I recommend it.

Anything by H-Hour as everything is always in its place.

Many others great candidates if you have the time to download and try them out.

Good call for Riot in Belgrade. Remember it as a heavy firefight with an ongoing assault on the embassy from all sides.

Yes, you can never go wrong with a campaign by Variable13, and GR: ZAPAD-81 is no exception. Excellent mod!

I've been dabbling in Baja Bravos Canadian Operatives 2(as a Canadian, I just had to check it out).. seems like a pretty awesome mod so far!

Yeah I was under the impression that he was quite a great madder back in the day. I've also been trying out his Sabre Team SAS mod and it seems pretty cool as well. Quality skins all around and I like the custom launchers he created, very easy to use.

That's got to be one of my favourite mods...excruciatingly difficult missions.

That was another great mission....forgot about that one. Off to the download section I go.

Yeah I'm beginning to see what you mean. Lost 1 soldier in mission 1 and thought it wasn't too tough so far.. and then mission 2 hits you like a surprise Rpg to the face Hahaha.  Haven't made it more than 2 minutes yet on my 5th try. 

Btw, Is that the Navy specialist from CO2 in your sig, Havok?

Before getting sidetracked though I would like to mention another great mod.

Monolith's GANGLAND

Here

Puts a different spin on GR...you play as cops vs gangs. This little mod has it all! The music sets the tone too. Some cool graffiti has been plastered all over this map courtesy of Raven and Wolfsong. BajaBravo did some of the skins, excellent job as always. And Monolith's scripting is top-notch. The gangbangers are strewn all over and come at you from nowhere it seems...sneaky little buggers.

 

I just played through these four missions tonight...playing with the AI is hard. And you have to take the modded M82 for a test....it literally knocks the bad guys right off their feet! There's also more blood than normal when you kill the gangbangers.

 

Check it out....you won't be disappointed ;-)

Yes it's the Navy spec from CO2, good eye. 

Wait until you get to the Chalet mission...that mission is nasty. It took a bunch of us a couple weekends to take that mission down....probably after the nth time. I don't think I could do that mission controlling the AI...BajaBravo and the rest of those dudes who made that mod are evil.

I'm aiming to host some games the weekend of the 10th to 12th if all goes well. CO2 could well be on the menu then. If you are around you should join us.

My favorite was always No Easy Day, I can still hear the music from that one!  Really liked YOTM, too.  That Canadian ips one had a couple great C7 variants that were fun, too.  British SAS was a great mod.  man, memory lane on this post... 5 mins till launch.  Time to crack a beer!
