Links that will rock your server!I thought the community might appreciate some links, all posted in one topic, to sites which provide programs or features to enhance your server. If I've missed any feel free to reply and I'll edit the master list.
1. PsychoStats2: Great stats proggy with terrific support. Mysql db required.
2. AMX Mod X: A final release, it is a versatile Half-Life metamod plugin which is targetted toward server administration. It has a wide array of scripting capabilities so people can write "plugins", or files which add on to a mod's functionality.
3. Admin Mod: A Metamod plugin that allows you to administer your Half-Life server while playing the game from your client console. Multiple administrators with different permissions can be set up. Not nearly as popular in the NS community as the above, nor as customizeable.
