Has anyone seen the film X (or, even better; the series of it?).

I need some help with some ideas for it. I reckon it would be a change to the normal OFP Mods/ missions that are being developed.

It would help if you knew what it was about to add ideas but its not necessary. I'll do a post about all the characters and the general plot of X later.

I'm hoping that the action could be mainly hand-to-hand with projectile attacks being used if anyone thinks that's possible.

If you've played the UT 2003 mod "Godz", it would be kinda like that, with the 3rd person camera view and loads of flying around trying to complete various missions depending on which side you chose to play on.

I'm looking for people to help me with this, so check if you're interessted. As I say, you don't actually have to know what its about if you want to help.

Just so this thread doesn't get locked (again :() keep the disscusion about the ideas plz.

Thanks Armsty, but Artak locked the topic before I'd even read your post. I have some recuitment posts at the Recuitment Depot, but they are yet to be cleared with the admin.

OK, so, the storyline of X goes something like this:-
(note Yes, it is an anime, but don't let that put you off. Hear out the story before you jump to conlusions, ok?)

Basically, a battle between good and evil, right and wrong (although that depends on your point of view).

There are two sides:

Dragons of Heaven - The Seven Seals
They want to preserve the Earth as it is now and protect it from destrution. So, when they have fights they set up a barrier field (Kekkai) so any damage that is caused in the fight doesn't happen to the real location. Although, if the one who puts up the barrrier is seriously wounded or killed, then the dammage does happen.

Dragons of Earth - The Seven Angels
They believe the Earth has been abused by its inhabitents and that it should be destroyed once and regenerated. Since they want total destrution, they don't set up Kekkai, although they could if they wanted to.

The battlefield in X is the city of Tokyo, Japan. There are some buildings which are important, I will list them later.

In the prophecy:

The gears of destiny have started moving...
Toward the end of this world.
The battle between the Dragons of Heaven
and Dragons of Earth has begun.
And only one person holds the key to the fate of the world
         - Kamui

It's refering to the fact that this "superman" can change the fate of the world depending on which side he chooses to be on. He picks to be on the Dragons of Heaven side (the good guys), but, what no-one has realized is that whichever side Kamui picks an "evil" Kamui goes to the other side. In this case his old friend Fuma turns into an evil Dragon of Earth.

Yeah, I know it can be a pain with the names. Although, you can just remember the charaters by what they look like or their powers. eg. "Main-good-guy" - Kamui, "Tall-main-bad-guy" - Fuma.

I checked out those weapons. Although its not really the weapons that's the problem. I need some help with how to structure the mission etc. various scripts I can use and how to make this mod different from the others.
