    Hey there! Thanks for checking out the thread. The first iteration of the gamemode was based on Brink, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and a few ideas of my own.
    The second iteration of it will be mostly based on games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, ArmA 2 and, once again, a few ideas of my own.

    Features:
    - 2 teams:
    - Rebels
    - Combine

    - 4 classes:
    - Recon
    - Engineer
    - Assault
    - Medic

    - 30 weapons all of which are customizable in one way or another without the use of multiple viewmodels (!):
    - 4 aim-assisting attachments
    - M203 underslung grenade launcher
    - silencer/suppressor or whatever it's called
    - Vertical grips
    - Beta C-magazines
    - The weapons use my "Customizable Weaponry" as a base

    - Climbing system
    - Personal Attributes - perks which have both an advantage and a disadvantage
    - Levels and Unlockables - eliminate enemies, help out team mates, complete objectives, level up and spend the skill points on 20 skills!
    - Ammo types (magnum, hollow-point, armor-piercing and slug ammo types)

    - Game types:
    - Search and Eliminate
    - Communications sabotage
    - Supply Depot
    - Team deathmatch


    Right. Now you're most probably thinking "what do the attachments do?" or "what do classes do?".

    Classes:
    - Recon:
    * Role - infiltrate (main)/assassinate/hit and run/weaken.
    * Has access to pistols and light SMGs.
    * Fastest movement speed.
    * Has full access to climbing system.
    * Can become invisible (not completely) for 20 seconds. Moving around causes cloak to drain faster
    * Special item - knife. Backstab = instant kill, frontal assault = 15 damage points. 1 second delay between knife attacks.
    * 80HP.
    * 40AP.
    * Starts out with 1 med kit.

    - Engineer:
    * Role - support (main)/infiltrate.
    * Has access to pistols, SMGs and shotguns.
    * Fast movement speed.

    * 85HP.
    * 85AP.
    * Starts out with 1 med kit.
    * Starts out with 4 armor vests

    - Assault:
    * Role - push (main)/support.
    * Has access to all weapons.
    * Medium movement speed.
    * Has limited access to climbing system.
    * Special item - ammo kit. Can resupply teammates' ammo.
    * 100HP.
    * 50AP.
    * Starts out with 1 med kit.
    * Starts out with 4 ammo kits

    - Medic:

    * 110HP.
    * 55AP.
    * Starts out with 5 med kits.

    - MED KITS HEAL 25 HEALTH PER MED KIT.
    - ARMOR KITS RESTORE ARMOR TO MAXIMUM ARMOR
    - AMMO KITS FULLY RESUPPLY BOTH A PLAYER'S PRIMARY AND SECONDARY WEAPONS' AMMO

    Movement system:
    Full access:
    * Wall run 3 times
    * Grab onto stuff
    * Pull self up
    * Shimmy
    * Wall-jump

    Near-full access:

    Limited access:
    * Wall run 1 time

    I could go on and on, but the OP would be incredibly long because of that, so let's leave it the way it is right now.

    And now, the FAQ that may or may not answer your questions.

    [b]Q: Will you release the gamemode or will it be a private gamemode?

    A: Of course I'll release it! If it were a private gamemode, I wouldn't be making this thread!

    Q: How close is the climbing system to Brink?

    A: Well, it's not exactly like in Brink, but it does let you climb into various places, and it is incredibly useful.
    The controls are easy as well, all you have to do is to walk up to a wall and hold down your JUMP KEY and your forward key simultaneously.
    There are a couple more of tricks, such as, sprinting next to a wall that's to your left/right, jumping, holding down the directional key (A/D) accordingly and holding down your JUMP KEY.

    Q: What do the attachments do and how do they work? (lolpun)

    A: Each attachment improves something while worsening something else.
    For example, if you get yourself an assault rifle or a battle rifle and put an ACOG scope on it, your accuracy will increase by a lot, but you won't be able to see your crosshair and your hip-fire accuracy will decrease by 60%.
    Each attachment is a trade-off, so, think before you equip the desired attachment: are you a CQC player or a sniper? Equip the attachment accordingly.

    Q: What do the ammo types do?

    A: Just like the attachments. Improves one thing, worsens some other thing.
    For example, magnum ammo. Deals 120% damage, but increases recoil to 125%.

    Q: How many weapons can I carry at once?

    A: You can carry 2 weapons. Your primary weapon (Light SMG/SMG/AR/BR/LMG/Shotgun) and your secondary weapon (Pistols).

    Q: Can I playtest the gamemode?

    A: Sure! Go to the server browser and search for a server called "LEETNOOB's Server".
    Alternatively, you can just copy-paste the IP, which is: 78.60.81.21:27015
    The server is located in Lithuania, Europe.
    If you can't find the server, it means that it's offline.

    Videos:

    This is a not-so-serious video, but it does show some of the gameplay.


    Here's another video, it was a 3v3 match in the "Communications Sabotage" game type.


    Another not-so-serious video.


    9 Minutes of Green Shift gameplay.

    The gamemode is pretty fun, though the gun sounds can be heard from anywhere in the map which is annoying.

    "I judge a book by it's cover." Great job.

    How about you first get a better point of view and only then make your judgement?

    Join his server sometime and actually play it. There's a lot more going on than just a weapon pack and a derma menu.

    Gamemode's progressing well and really quickly. I've created a round system for the "Search and Eliminate" game type.

    Looks quite nice. You should differentiate the classes a little more can give them proper specialized roles rather than all assaulting/infiltrating.

    Not sure, I might release it.

    That's what they do. Medics give medkits to other players, Assaults resupply others' ammo, Engineers repair others' armor.

    Edited:

    Here's a gameplay video.


    It's not exactly a serious video, but, still, gives you an idea of the gameplay. Well, maybe not exactly. You didn't see what's it like as a medic/engineer.

    I practically shat bricks when you were recon, and for some odd reason I KEPT MISSING YOU WHEN SHOOTING, hence shooting your body when I killed you.

    Which maps will you be adding support for the game mode?

    Counter-Strike: Source maps, plus, a friend of mine said that he wants to create maps for the gamemode, so I guess those maps as well.

    Edit: Damn, the fact that GMod's down means that I can't test anything.

    Why? The CS:S maps work fine. Though you could easily add support for DOD:S and HL2:DM maps.

    This, and HL2:DM maps are perfect for the Team Deatmatch Gamemode.

    Well your gamemode does feel like a sourcemod every now and then, so I got used to calling the gametypes gamemodes.

    The server is up, if you want to, you can join and playtest it. I'm not there, so, gather up some people if you want to play. And if you get any Lua errors, post them here.

    Although, I don't know for how long it is up.

    Working on "Communications Sabotage" right now.

    Take a look in the upper left corner. The green progress bar shows how much data has been downloaded, and the blue progress bar shows how much data has been uploaded.

    Right click -> view image.

    Edited:

    Communication Sabotage game type is finished. What. I thought it was going to take me much more time to complete.

    Well, since everything is pretty much done, the gamemode is finished as well. All I gotta do now is get enough playtesters to test everything, fix bugs, and it's ready for release.

    Yeah, people on FP are "really" initiative. I need playtesters to playtest this at least ONCE with 10 players, yet if I gather up at least 6, most of them suddenly leave because they need to go. Which sucks.
