i think that valve handed these fellas the project of converting TFC into the source code, instead of going with the original plan to make TFC Remake. So far, though there isn't much yet, it looks like they'll be doing a grand job. Check it out: http://www.fortress-forever.com :treat:
enjoy.

actually i beleeb its an idependant team, of some notable tfc contributors. since there was never really any explicit indications of valve releasing a TF mod for the Source engine, they took it upon themselves to start on one :D and if i remember right the last time i read their initial announcement, that they are still going to develop it whether valve release a TF: source or not (ie, the possibility of two TF: source mods) :pbt:

Bah, TF2 isn't TFC. It's more like CS and DOD.

I can see that when this comes out, I'll be having to break down and buy HL2 just so I can play this....

I really would like to, but i still don't have a machine to play HL2 on. So it depends on when it comes out. If it comes out after i got a new machine running, then i'll download it right away.

I see they welded the end of the rifle barrel shut. They'll probably bore that open as soon as they release the game.... :sniper:

Everything looks nice except for a small, teeny, little problem.... why in the world don't they have female skins yet?! You'd figure the people at valve would have woken up and noticed women play this game as well, guess not... :cry: :evil: Then again, if they did make female skins, knowing of past designs from the games I've seen my friends play, they'd probably end up making them look like porn stars, how typical :-? :roll:
