Recently, work was begun on a new mod that will be developed in parallel for Elite Force, Jedi Knight 2, Quake 3 Arena, and other games based on that engine. The mod, called Torn Reality, will bring together many sci-fi universes for a very unique play experience.
Imagine leading Klingon Warriors as they charge into battle against the a contingent of Stormtroopers, or being a T-800 and attempting to erradicate a Xenomorph infestation. The mod will include civilizations from Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Terminator, Alien, Stargate, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Farscape, and Warhammer 40K. Several of those universes will include multiple civilizations, such as Star Trek, which is represented by the Federation, Klingons, Borg, and Dominion.
Each civilization will have multiple classes, each with unique weapons and capabilities. Special settings for team games will allow you to have matches between specific factions, such as the Galactic Empire, the United Federation of Planets, and the Earth Alliance. Or, you can turn that option off, and mix and match classes as much as you like.
Plus, we the mod will have a number of vehicles available. You will be able to pilot AT-ST's, X-Wings, Federation Shuttlecraft, Thunderbolt Starfuries, and more.
The mod will have a massive scope, and I am undertaking this project with the knowledge that it will not be easy. The project currently includes a Project Manager (myself), and a Programming Lead. Although we have not yet found a modeller, work is progressing steadily on the coding and design fronts, and we expect our first alpha to be ready by April 7. The following positions are still available: Modellers Skinners 2D Artist Webmaster Mappers
Benefits to being on the project include access to beta and alpha versions, as well as having your name in the credits for one EF's most ambitious modding projects. If you have skills you'd like to contribute to the mod, or if you just want more information, you can post in this thread, or you can contact me via e-mail or private message. My e-mail address is [email]BR48@Juno.com[/email].
I hope to hear from you.
