The following is a “partial list” of the greatest mods once in development and then unfortunately dropped or on hold.

It’s very sad to see how much work didn’t see a good end. Some of the listed mods are certainly dropped while for some others there is still the possibility to be completed. Do not hesitate to contact the authors and to support them!!!

 

"Afghanistan"

Type of Mod: Total Conversion
Modmakers: Marcinko, Kamakazi, The_Slink, JTF-2, Chems
GR.net progress forum discussion: Click Here
Status: dropped 100%
Mod Synopsis: Set in Afghanistan, this mod comes to you directly from recent history. It is intended to immerse you in the role of Allied forces battling terrorist forces in events similar to those faced in Operation Enduring Freedom. The Afghanistan team has put together some impressive models and skins so far, and if one views them as a testament to the overall quality of this mod, it should be a winner.
