    Operation Hummingbird SDL Released
    Here's a 1 level set sent in by T.G. Wells. It features a recoloured SS and a boss. Text file included. Available here. Vista/Windows 7-compatible.

    I must admit it's not that great. Sad

    Possibly one of those mods that's only for those who collect everything.

    It's likely a first effort. After seeing your comment I was expecting worse when I tried it. It's not that bad. New music, nicely recolored SS guards and BJ hair, and you had to work to get the silver key to the "boss room." The mapping isn't buggy and looks nicely detailed in an editor. It does need some more varied decoration and layouts though.

    T.G. Wells, if you read this, keep at it!

    Gave this a go and I had fun. That's the point of mods for me, anyway - TO HAVE FUN playing them. If I want to sit down and actually use my brain for a second I'd play End of Destiny or Eisenfaust Origins. This is pure fun.

    I like the title screen, and I'm glad somebody else is keen on SA/SS interplay. I had similar ideas going in Overkill, I even made a wall patch with an image depicting the respective SA and SS logos subtitled with "Neue Ordnung", forcing the two teams to work together. Of course, the levels were scattered with dead SA and SS guards. It was fun. I like it when the Nazis internally mess each other up, the same with mutants in Totengraeber's level 13-18. I get hysteric about it.

    More of this, please! Though T.G. Wells sounds an awful like H.G. Wells. What, are you 108 years old? Very Happy

    It's very reminiscent of Gerolf's stuff, as was mentioned. Well designed, compact, relatively easy but still a good play.
