The other day I began working out some ideas for a gamemode that I thought would be rather interesting…
Conflicts in the Middle East has put the entire world on edge. No one country fully trusts another. Yet in the midst of all this, several countries have begun toying with what little trust there is. The Chinese government, not happy with several choices the American president has made, uses spy satellites and hackers to gain knowledge of what is going on in the US capital. When the US find out about the Chinese covert operations, the Chinese government becomes scared for the nation’s security. To prevent a US retaliation, they begin searching for allies, and decide to turn to the MEC.
Meanwhile, in another part of the world, North Koreans attempt to invade South Korea. This catches the attention of the British and Russian governments. Knowing they would be able to convince Vietnam to ally with them, the North Koreans send a representative to Vietnam. At first, Vietnam was hesitant, especially after the defeat they suffered during World War II, but eventually they agree. However, they request that the Koreans involve China in the alliance, in order to make a strong alliance of Asian countries. North Korea agrees and eventually becomes allied with China and the MEC.
This sets the foundation for the PAF (Pan Asian Federation)*.
After hearing about the formation of the PAF, the American, British, French, and Italian governments decide its time they intervene. Forming the GSU (Greater Sovereign Union)*, they are ready to take action if the need arises.
Fearing their country would be is in danger, the Russian government makes contact with the US president, requesting to be included in the GSU. The president agrees and Russia joins the alliance. The Germans, still sore at the Russians for defeating them in WWII, decide that it would be in their best interest to ally with the PAF, and after contacting Vietnam, do.
The world stays at peace for maybe a year after the formation of the alliances. Eventually, however, China makes a mistake by putting drugs in toys they ship to America. Outraged, the Americans declare war on China. At this point, the conflict begins…
*Note that names are prone to change.

The Player’s Role:
Upon first entering the server, a player will be required to select a faction (GSU or PAF). Then, they will be required to choose a class. They must then choose a country and name for their character (Models will depend on the player’s country selection). After spawning, its the player’s job to group with players of his alliance system and use tactics to take down players of the opposing faction.
-> This is all I have so far. If anyone would like to help with anything, please contact me either on here or on Xfire (2stepkarnage). Please let me know what you think!<-
After some debating, we’ve changed the names of the two factions (see above). Currently, the team (which consists of a modeler, a mapper, and myself) are debating on whether we will make this an RTS or an FPS. I am also in the process of making a website for it. Finally, I would like to announce that depending on the success of this gamemode, we will be making a full fledged mod out of this. If it flops, well, we’ll just pretend like it never existed ;).
Thank you all for your support/suggestions!
Probably going to end up working on the RPK next…
We’ve pretty much got the weapons and vehicles covered, but if anyone would like to help with the character models, it would be greatly appreciated.
We’ve also got some concept art done. I’ll get them posted as soon as the artist gets his scanner fixed.

EDIT: We’ve gotten a few things working, but we’re still fixing the HUD. We’ll post screens whenever its working correctly.
