SiMPLE expansion into other FPS titles

Hey so I don’t know if this has been addressed here before (it probably has but I can’t find the topic) but wouldn’t it be cool if SiMPLE could expand into other games? I think it would be hugely beneficial to export the SiMPLE brand to other FPS titles, new or old. Some benefits of doing that would be:

- SiMPLE will grow. More people will register to the SiMPLE forums and there will be an exchange of players from one game to the other
- A possibility for BF1942 to receive an influx of new players and at the same time participate in minor revivals of inactive or dead older FPS titles
- SiMPLE could easily develop a very positive reputation outside of BF1942 and could become a banner for older FPS titles, sort of like an umbrella community where all the fans of old school FPS regroup
- Knowledge exchange from game to game, getting to know new players from different games, possibly new clans can be made

I think it’s a better idea to concentrate on older FPS titles because these games suffer from a lack of representation as opposed to newer titles. I mean sure SiMPLE could support BF3 or BF4, but I think since this is a community that supports a game from 2002, it would be to everyone’s interest to support other older FPS as opposed to newer ones.

Support for the potential servers in the new games could be assured through a monthly donations system (Clan Pay or PayPal).

I am leaving a poll in this thread so we can choose some titles that we could possibly see being supported by SiMPLE in the near future. I have Battlefied Vietnam in mind, Quake Live/Quake 3 Arena, Unreal Tournament, Soldier of Fortune II and BF2 but will add more choices to the poll eventually. If you have a game in mind that you would like to add, please mention it on this topic. Thanks.

What other older FPS titles could SiMPLE support in the future?

  1. Quake Live and Quake III Arena
  2. Battlefield Vietnam
  3. Battlefield 2
  4. Soldier of Fortune II
  5. Unreal Tournament
  6. Return to Castle Wolfenstein
  7. Counter Strike 1.6
  8. Call of Duty II
  9. Medal of Honor
Total votes: 12

So did I - got my ass beaten for 5 hours straight. After some fiddling with *.cfg files I'm gettin better.

ET:W was famous for its team orientated gameplay and still is - sadly that part was totaly absent that short time.

Back to bf1942 feels like playing in a slowmotion vidya and jumpin on your opponents head from a short distance doesen't work well in bf1942.

Re: SiMPLE expansion into other FPS titles

Quake 3, BF 2 - would be good smile
And maybe add Call of Duty 2 in the poll? This game also dedicated to WW2 period, having low system reqirements and automatically downloading all necessary files for clients, while player joining to server.

CS 1.6?

Re: SiMPLE expansion into other FPS titles

Great post, Black Mamba. I would like to help out Battlefield Vietnam players indeed, the code is very similar to Battlefield 1942, and that is a plus. There are other old FPS game titles interesting: Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, Medal of Honor. I never liked Quake, Unreal Tournament and Doom type of games.

Let's not forget Battlefield Secret Weapons Demo. smile It was always great fun playing Hellendoorn modded 24/7.

Can you add more game options to the poll, please?

Re: SiMPLE expansion into other FPS titles

I added CoD II, MoH and CS 1.6 to the list.

I think a BFV server would be the best option for now. In terms of server installation it would be rather simple. How would we promote the server though?

Re: SiMPLE expansion into other FPS titles

CS 1.6 is full of hackers because almost every server is just cracked and the game is just broken and hasn't aged well. I can understand trying CS source instead of GO but 1.6 is a 90s game lol. 


Anyways Mamba to you directly you should check out a game called  Ironsight, I've put in like 8 hours already on it.

I know you liked SoF2 and its like a cross mix of that, bf2, and CoD kinda. Really fast paced. It's free to play and it's not gay like that one Lithuanian hacker from the other topic and other free to play games that have micro-transactions and are pay to win. None of that gay shit.
There are quite a lot of decent-skilled players on it too

You played Cod?  I miss that series (the WW2 editions), and it's incredibly modding-friendly.
I even added tank repairs on UO.

Current WW2 playerbase:

A SiMPLE Quake/UT server would have been amazing, I am sure there are a lot of Quake/UT enthusiasts on SiMPLE. I wouldn’t even mind hosting it myself.
