IGN Entertainment has announced that its game modding-focused Web site, ModCenter, has launched to the public and is now open for users and teams to create and manage game development modding and other projects. Built around the SourceForge toolset by CollabNet and free to use, ModCenter is aimed specifically at modification and independent game development. The new online service provides project management utilities, industry educational resources and promotional services to the development community. Utilities include a bug-tracking system, project discussion forums, source code repositories, a wiki system, document storage and an internal file release system, all controlled via a project administration area. In addition to its development tools, ModCenter plans to offer promotional services to its users in tandem with IGN’s leading game file download site, FilePlanet. “IGN and GameSpy have always supported user-created content editorially as well as through promotion and distribution,” said Jamie Berger, SVP Consumer Products & Technology for IGN Entertainment. “Mod and Independent game development is becoming increasingly sophisticated, often involving team members from across the globe... We are especially pleased to work with CollabNet and their SourceForce system, a proven leader in tools and community support for Open Source software development.”
