Rarely are avid gamers content with the original installations of their favorite games. Sooner or later, you’re bound to go searching for add-ons or enhancements to add features or functionality to your favorite titles. There’s now a new archival resource for such users called
(Archive spelled backwards).
The folks behind Evihcra.com have experience with this sort of thing — they’re the same folks who founded the Mill, a popular resource for add-on files and total conversions designed to work with Bungie’s Myth and Myth II games.
The site features a customizable online database where you can present your own efforts to the game world. It’s been developed to be accessible for both Mac and PC users, alike. The site gives contributors control over how their files are distributed, as well — registered users can submit new content, remove it and update it themselves. Non-members can download any of the files as well.
“The Evihcra community is like nothing you have experienced before, each game inhabits its own distinctive web site suited to the particular game it represents, yet each site shares the same database, membership roster and central organizational hub,” said Evihcra spokesperson Gary Simmons. “Envision Evihcra as ancient Greece with each of the game sites as one of the City-States. As such, each unique game site fosters a community feel in a larger environment without all the hemlock, wooden horses and sweaty guys in short skirts.”
has opened with two areas of specific interest — the Mill, the well-known Myth/Myth II archive; and The Sims!, an area where you can download or share custom-made skins, furnishings, full house packs and utilities. Support for Unreal Tournament, The Quake series, and SiN is coming soon, and the site’s admins hope to add support for other popular titles soon.
