I am going to make a mod based upon the Napoleonic wars - I am thinking for classes I will have cavalry (quicker move speed, sword, pistol) light infantry (accurate rifle, knife) grenadier (rifle, grenades, slow move speed) officer (pistol, sword, binoculars) and light cavalry (even faster move speed, sword, binoculars). This will be implemented right away. Then I will probably create artillery, which moves VERY slowly, and possibly a horse drawn cart and ships.

I can do some of this on my own, but most of it need a modeler and/or animator. (I can skin)

Yeah, i don't know how either, all I can do is skin and sort of mod - can you do anything. I've started the coding, done weapons (I won't be modelling) and other than the basic coding, I will just do some skinning of people.

Hey, email me (embrel@msn.com)- I know a modeller/mesher/possibly skinner. This dude's a whiz with 3-d stuff. A real pro. If you're interested I could probably score his email address for you, and you could work something out w/him.

Is this mod still alive? Some people and I were playing line fighting in the Pirates mod, and I thought it would be fun to have a mod for that, Napoleonic warfare. And also realistic ship to ship combat like in the movie Master and Commander.

For the ships, I would like them to be as realistic as possible, requiring teamwork to be effective, each man having 3-5 cannons to fire and reload, cannonballs that do realistic damage so that both the ship carpenter and the surgeon have to work to keep the ship and the crew functional. And if it's possible, the ships should have the sails and the rudder, along with the guns, as separate objects that can be damaged separately, making it possible to have different tactics, not just crazy firing. As far as the line fighting goes, the guns should be very inaccurate when running and staying inaccurate long after running. So the only way to hit something would be walking or standing still, forcing people to adopt to the line fighting style. And battlefield cannons should have no splash damage, but, like in the movie Patriot (with Mel Gibson), only direct hit from a cannonball would kill you. Otherwise nobody will want to stand in line when cannonballs are dropping around you.
