* A strangely popular pursuit is taking one RTS game and making a total conversion mod to essentially turn it into another RTS game 'as seen through the first game's engine'. For example, there are mods that turn ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer: Red Alert 2'' into ''Red Alert'', ''VideoGame/TotalAnnihilation'' into ''Red Alert'', ''Total Annihilation: Kingdoms'' into ''VideoGame/{{Cossacks}}: European Wars'', and so on and so forth. Attempts are being made to make ''StarCraft'' run on Linux by using the Strategus engine. Strategus doesn't support free-roaming units, idle animation, critters, or many of the mechanisms used in {{Easter Egg}}s at all, and the creep, Pylon power, and building liftoffs would require at ''least'' some minor modifications to the engine itself... [[PortingDisaster good luck with that]].

* One of the most common and popular mods for ''VideoGame/BattleGaregga'' is a visible DynamicDifficulty (known more commonly as "rank") counter, as keeping rank managed is one of the most important aspects to securing a no-continue clear.

** ''Pokémon'' also provides an in-universe example -- [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Porygon-Z]] is the result of applying the Dubious Disc, an unauthorised third-party mod, onto Porygon2. Given that Porygon-Z is [[GameplayAndStorySegregation said to be]] glitchy and unstable, perhaps it's a TakeThat aimed at game mods in general?

* ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' has an extensive map modding community, which often range from crappy to excellent. All of which is played on a separate version of the game called "Halo: Custom Edition" (which requires the retail version to work).

* ''[[VideoGame/Postal Postal 2]]'' had a game mod created in response to complaints about the Apocalypse Weekend add-on entitled "A Week in Paradise", which fixed various issues, added new weapons/gore, and increased the difficulty. This mod was so successful the developer officially released it in the "Fudge Pack".

** There was a Generals-to-Red-Alert-2 TC but when news of ''Red Alert 3'' came out, development ceased. Another promising project was Halogen, a Generals TC to Halo -- however, ExecutiveMeddling on the part of Microsoft (more specifically a cease-and-desist letter, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive no doubt due to ''VideoGame/HaloWars'' being in development]]) destroyed all trace of it.

** A particularly impressive mod that's been made for ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'' is RTS, where you can take virtually any NPC or object and move them to a town that you build yourself. Essentially making it into an incredibly violent post-apocalyptic ''Franchise/TheSims''-style game.
