I'm nearly done with my planning stages. I wanted to do this before I started putting together a staff because to have a bunch of people sitting around waiting for orders is not a good way to assemble an army, right?
So here goes, within a week or two I will be "done" (is planning ever really done?) with the pre-production on this mod, and will begin filling all positions: scripters, modelers, skinners, and writers (though I'll do the majority of the writing, some scripting, and quite a bit of skinning myself).
I'm probably going to do the maps entirely on my own, but I'm really interested in seeing what someone else is capable of. If you have a map you've done and are interested in doing the DL map, please post what you've got (screenshots) and I'll certainly take a look (alternatively, if you've done a map for a currently released mod, direct me to the download and I'll be able to get a closer look that way).
If you are interested in helping out, please leave all the info I might need here (specifically, what you can help out with, how much you wish to be involved) and I'll get back to you for specifics.
