We are livestreaming today, Saturday October 3rd, at 3:00 pm EST featuring AbleGamers, the charity for disabled gamers. You can tune in here.
AbleGamers is a charity that strives to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities through the power of video games. They work with game developers to help make games more accessible during development with their guide on Includification and other support. AbleGamers also grants out custom gaming controllers to get people with disabilities playing games. This includes one handed controllers, head tracking units, voice programs, and more depending on the person’s disability. If you’re interested in donating to help AbleGamers and its mission, visit http://www.ablegamers.com/ for more information.

We are livestreaming today, Saturday August 22nd, at 3:00 pm EST showing off the Tactical Rebalance mod, with its creator AndyBroski. You can tune in to the livestream here.
The Tactical Rebalance Mod modifies Insurgency to have a tweaked damage model, varying armor types with visual representation, new auto pistols, new attachments, free aim where the weapon moves independent of your view, and more. AndyBroski went through the ammunition types and tweaked the values for a slightly less lethal but still unforgiving damage model where you'll notice certain armor can stop rounds more easily.
The mod is still in testing phases, so your feedback is welcome. We’ll be playing on a 32 person PvP server, and everyone is welcome to join. You can subscribe to the mod here or just connect to the server and autodownload the necessary files. The server’s IP will be given out in the stream chat.
In the Tactical Rebalance mod, weapons are free to move around the screen while aiming down the sights
