Update: Afraid I'll be out of town over the next few days (just FYI). Please go easy on my mailbox :).
Guess this is a little late :), but: The results of the 2004 Golden Spanner Mod of the Year Awards, a "People's Choice" contest encompassing mods for games of genres, have been announced on ModDB.com. Sven Co-op came in second for the coveted Mod of the Year award (just below Red Orchestra for UT2004), and won first place in the Best Action Mod category!
In addition to this, Sven Co-op for Half-Life 2 was selected as Best Upcoming Mod, winning the team a number of games and two T-shirts from Electronic Arts! We're currently considering using these (or proceeds from their sale) for SC competition prizes sometime in the future.
A huge thank you to everyone who gave us a nomination in any category! Remember to head over to the Golden Spanner Awards results page and check out the other great mods which received awards.
New screenshots from Sven Co-op 2 were released along with the award results, by the way (Valve even e-mailed to let us know that they'd be showing some of them during a talk Jess Cliffe and Mike Dussault were doing at a local game development school!) -- Here they are, along with some extras. Please note that these show work in progress, not completed work.
We're calling the map you see in the shots (being made by MarGon), "Depot", for the moment. The Gordon Freeman player model was created from scratch by DoktorAce... skin by DoktorAce and TeddyBear. Thanks to all three of them for their brilliant work, and to Nev and IchII3D for arranging the screenshots!
Hopefully we'll have more SC2 content for you over the coming weeks -- a lot has been done, but we're not ready to show some things just yet. We should also have a couple of new missions for Sven Co-op 1 available for download sometime soon, by the way, so keep an eye on the site. Also, if you have experience with UV unwrapping/3D art in general, make sure to check Sniper's news post below.
P.S. - Due to having been busy over the holidays, afraid I'm even further behind with my e-mail at the moment :(. Heartfelt apologies to everyone still waiting for a reply from me.
