  Dystopia gets Steamed. - Mod News
  Posted by: Nitronumber9 on 11-27-2008 @ 12:49 - Source: Dystopia
This News Item has been viewed 9,298 times
One of the very first Half Life 2 mods has released some interesting news. They are the 8th mod (Thats released the news) to have access to Steamworks.

Since being given the opportunity to utilize the SteamWorks utility, we have made it very clear to ourselves that we would keep it a secret, even to our best of friends, play testers and supporters, until we knew for a fact that we could harness this powerful application.

I have the pleasure of announcing that our next version, 1.2, complete with new maps, many new changes and fixes, will be available direct to download from Steam, utilizing the SteamWorks framework! I have said it numerous times in the past, but I will re-iterate. It does not matter the quality of the modification or game brought to SteamWorks, as it does that the modding community has been given this great opportunity to use such a distinguished application. We are very proud to be alongside some of the greatest modifications the Source community has to offer like Eternal Silence, Insurgency, D.I.P.R.I.P., Pirates, Vikings & Knights II, and more!

Along with this announcement, we'd like to formally announce the long-awaited and much anticipated Dystopia Statistics & Information System 2.0. We call it 2.0, because it is a complete rewrite, from the network protocol to the master server to the database to the web frontend. The whole thing is new and incorporates much of what we have learned from the original system. We've also implemented rolling stats, as was discussed heavily on the suggestions forums. It is flawlessly integrated into our next version to deliver a fast and easy to interpret informational view of all of Dystopia's players, matches, servers and more.

Nice to hear you guys get STEAMed wink

But I heard about achievments, . . . really ? These are the kind of things that kill the gamaplay, and the fun.

Neat, I'd figure it would. Everybody say's its number 1, and I agree. I also hope to see SMOD on Steam...but it's cool to see Dyst there!

#3 Everything has problems in it, nothing is perfect.

You should be damn happy that STEAM does what it does, because it has brought about huge improvements to the community and the gaming industry as a whole. Being able to download modifications straight through STEAM saves a lot of hassle and will broaden the modding community because it makes these modifications more easily accessible to more users than any other system. You should count yourself lucky that STEAM provides direct downloads to keep us all up-to-date with improvements, otherwise we'd all end up playing EA games on different versions that we have to download indirectly off file-sites and install seperately.

STEAM is the best interface and system I have ever encountered in PC gaming, and it has done wonders to the future of gaming as we know it.

Long live VALVe, who care about their customers by constantly updating and improving their interface and games.
