[WIP] DustStorm

Postby Bevo » 28.11.2009, 21:47

Hi Crysis Community!

Introduction:
I'm here to announce our DustStorm map!
It is made by our UltraGaming Team and other levels will follow.

It is our first map. To learn things and gain experience we will modify and use the Mesa map as a start. We are planning on making story based levels.


Story:
The constant fear of Nuclear attack lead Western powers to develop Anti-ICBM satelites, with the balance of world power shifted disproportionally west, the Chinese Government plotted... The stole this technology as their own and launched theirs abruptly. Sanctions from the USA, UK, Germany and France (The countries that participated) ensued China was denied trade with other countries... one vital raw material really had an effect, OIL. (2020 - around the same time of Crysis -3 months after- , this was considered a minor conflict by the Americans)

Desperate and facing civil unrest, Chinese forces turned their gaze to the near-depleted oil reserves of the middle east. Problem was it had NATO forces in the country, and others in the way... (February 2021)

The Chinese advance was brutal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq all fell to a massive suprise attack, the line was held at the ruins of Palistine. SAS and UFR raids against the Invading army began. Vital Info gained from a raid allowed a fresh American Armored division and numerous Infantry divisons to break the Chinese hold on the country. (November 2021)

"2 Years later..." - (Note large parts are missing im just giving some context with some things already known)

Operation Dustorm was critcal in the removal of China from the Middle east, their attemps at oil where thwarted. A new leader was in power, he promised peace, to the press he was a gentle man. The reality was different. For years the Chinese had been suppling Russian insurgents, it was only a matter of time before they decided to join in. Their intention? The Russian's oil reserves. (September 2023)

In the suburbs of a Russian city the sounds of tanks treads and jets wizzing overhead is all that can be heard. On the other side... a squad of hastily drawn Specnaz Commandos and draftees. Can they hold the chinese advance so the civilians can escape? The day a GRUDGE is born...

Characters:

Captain Robin "Yankee" (American) - The Playable Character In this mission
Lieutenant Paul "Urchin" (Scottish) - The Squad's humor factor "Chinese missles, you get what you paid for.."
Sergeant David "Davidiusz" (Polish) - Law and order type of character, follows orders without question.
Corpral Dimitry "DMR" (Russian) - "A little cranky" -Urchin


Features
  • A story based level
  • Squad based gameplay
  • A desert like environment just like Mesa
  • Custom characters
  • ...

A crit about the plane crash is that I see a lot of triangular and very pointy terrain. Try making it a bit more smooth :D

Story...

Postby Urchin » 01.12.2009, 19:49

Hi Urchin here, im the level scriptor

Story:
Recent developments into anti Nuclear missile tech, led by the Western Powers have developed satelites which destroy Nukes in-flight. Envious and fearful of the shift of power, China steals this technology launching their own. Sanctions from the UN where almost abrupt. For Years China was denied suppies, mainly oil, after years of civil war, the government acted... their eyes set on the oil deposits of the middle east...

The Chinese made significant progress in the initial weeks, NATO forces where finally able to halt their progress. Groups of elite commandos UFL (Ultra Force Rangers). Join their ranks.

Characters:

Captain Robin "Yankee" (American) - The Playable Character In this mission
Lieutenant Paul "Urchin" (Scottish) - The Squad's humor factor "Chinese missles, you get what you paid for.."
Sergeant Davidiuz "David" (Polish) - Law and order type of character, follows orders without question.

Nice story and characters, but why are there no east Asian or African characters , it's like a white party , Jong jo shin, a south korean Spec ops, or Major Isaac Gates a guy who's voice equals a hurricane, just some ideas.

Story update...

10 Years ago a signal was sent into space, something is out there...

The chinese recieve sanctions for stealing Western Anti-ballistic missile satellite technology. Among these is no trading with all UN members ... with oil supplies dwindling, riots and civil war, the Chinese government acted. Their envious eyes set on the oil resevoirs of the Middle East.

Their invasion was swift and brutal, storming through India, Pakistan, Iran and Iraq in just 2 weeks civilian casualties are in the millions.
Their progress halted over the ruins of Israel were UN forces have dug in. A group of UN troops was assembled from various Special forces to launch small time raids, The Ultra Force Rangers, commonly refered to as the UFR.

A particular raid, lead by a Captain "Yankee" was highly sucessful in hampering the Chinese military, long enough to launch a huge counter attack. This famous mission was known as... "OPERATION DUSTSTORM".

How do you plan to do the storyline? Actual dialogue? Cutscenes? Trackview? Or just text messages?

And yes, make a new ToD. It looks like the default Mesa one to me.
