The story will take place in post-world-war III Bohemia. I would not reveal much of it, since it's still in progress. I have created a rough concept of a story and complete concept of a world.
Rough story sketch:
There was a great war. Noone knows who started it, and it doesn't matter. The atomic war was not so bad as everyone expected. Some places were not so badly destoyed, like the Bohemian lands, People emerged from their shelters and begun a new life, again. And with people returned greed and power struggle. One of the many power groups are the rangers. The so-called guardians of peace. The player will be a ranger, send to inspect why the main base does not respond to radio calls. During his yourney he will encounter many mutated creatures, as well as many friendly npc's and vendors. But this is only rough sketch and could be changed in the future.
I'm planning to create total conversion, with many new acs driven mechanis. I'm skilled in drawing sprites and I have lately learned how to create voxel modesl, so I'm making completely new voxel based props. But the work is little bit overwhleming, so if anyone would volunteer, I would be happy.
I have yet created one map as finished, and one maps is in progress. I'm planning to have at least 20 maps, with various size.
I have already created a new weapon set, with weapons downloaded from realm667, and also created two new weapons myself. For the items, I have downloaded and modified some new inventory based items - mainly new healing items and ammo items. The weapons have reaload states.
For immersion, I have implemented USDF based dialogues for conversations and terminal interaction. The USDF is pretty easy to use, so it could be used in many ways.
Download is not yet planned, since it is in very early alpha state. I have the sources stripped in many files, so I have to pack the resources first before the release. So please don't ask, it is very early state. But if anyone wants to try, I can pack it and you can try it in gzdoom builder.
And also because I'm from czech, I developing it in czech language. The release will be translated into english, but only the dialogues. The graphics will be still in czech. The story takes place in czech, so the signs, ets. will be in czech. Sorry, we don't speak english here. The stalker series had sign in cyrillic, so czech in latin script is more easy to read and translate
