Right now, my team of schoolmates and I have suspended our Gundam mod for bf1942, and have started on a SST mod for the upcoming HL2. We have made good progress, but I think the mod will hit low time when hl2 comes out, so our coder can get the SDK all figured out, so he can get to work. Naturally, we are keeping the movie SST storyline, but with some of the book ideas, which I think makes it even better. A few goals we are working on, some are even met.
-Normal SST movie MI troopers, but with "master chief" type armor from Halo, without helmet, concepts look very close now.
-Heavy mobilized armor, looks like and will come from the "Blue Gender" Anime series, dubbed "Armored Advanced Shrike" or AAS assault unit.
-All normal SST movie bugs
-Weapons for normal MI assault marines, Morita and various conversions. A heavily modified version of a Pulse Rifle will be added.
-Map scenarios...capture the brain, standoff, escape, assault, retreat, wait for dropship, siege, and rescue.
-FLYABLE vehicals, such as the light bombers shown in the movie.
Meh...more work to do...post your thoughts/suggestions.
