Whilst saying "progress has been slow" may sound like a bad thing, it probably isn't in our case, because it rightfully implies that there has been some progress still. Work has been ongoing in trying to assemble and finish the various remaining elements of the player model, but now with the help of a certain old schooler, in the form of Goldie (bear). He is graciously assisting us with the final tasks and we hope this will allow us to turn a corner in terms of the recent activity lull. Watch this space!

Staying Alive

Further apologies for the lack of visible progress. Code development has very much continued, however the progress with the models stalled due to waiting for the UV map to be re-created. We hope that progress will carry on with this iminently, though of course we wouldn't want to commit to a timescale just yet. We're still on the lookout for a mapper, so if you can help, or know someone that can, please get in touch.

A pulse

Apologies for the lack of recent updates. Roman has been focussing on his academic studies, which are now coming to a conclusion. This should mean that further development should re-commence very shortly. In the mean time Tetsu0 has continued work on Stade de France, and I've also been on the look out for more mappers to help us out. If you think you may be interested, please don't hesitate to get in touch at

New Team Member

Please welcome our newest team member, Tetsu0, to the team. He is joining us as a vastly experienced level designer on the Source engine specifically, and his upcoming works will appear in the first release.

We will be in posession of the finished full animation set within the next day or so, at which point work will begin on getting the model and animations functioning in-game. We'll endeavour to keep you all informed of the progress being made, but things are definitely starting to come together. Keep your eyes peeled!

An update

We are currently in the process of negotiating terms and requirements with an animator, and hope to have further news soon. We still need your donations so donate if you can!

A decade of IOS

Ten years ago to the day, a Half-Life modification was unleashed upon the world. That modification was of course International Online Soccer beta 1. Whilst the mod was in development for almost a year before this, it was not available to the public and the community had not yet begun. Since then we've seen countless players come and go, new teams form and then collapse, leagues and cups, as well as uncountable highs and lows. And yet we're still here, perhaps in the midst of one of the most exciting periods within IOS' history, where the game is on the verge of the most impressive release yet. None of this would have been possible of course without routetwo, the creator and former long-suffering developer of IOS. Fortunately development is now in just as capable hands, and the game shows no sign of giving up - quite the opposite.

Keep an eye out for some celebration and nostalgia that's coming your way!

New models unveiled

The new player models for the upcoming version of IOS:S have now been unveiled, and you can see them in all their glory by visiting the media page. These player models would not exist were it not for the generousity of the community, so a big thanks must go out to them. They are not yet animated, as we are still currently on the hunt for a new animator. To help us do this, we'd be forever grateful if you were to contribute to our fund to get the player model animated. Any donations will be hugely appreciated and will go a long way to helping us secure an animator to bring these models to life! The link is on the media page, alongside the models.
