DarkWater summary
This project is a mod set across three maps:
-Seoul Airbase in South Korea.
-Open ocean across multiple ships
-A missile launch facility in North Korea.

Both land based maps are based on real-world locations.
The mod is set in the now/near-future. As with Castaway there will be no aliens.

Story Premise
North Korea has developed a new powerful weapon. They are using this weapon to initiate their plans to invade South Korea.

Map features already completed
1. Boat docking system on all ships. This allows a boat to be taken from ship to ship and docked appropriately
2. Usable parascope
3. All elevators on Carrier in working order

Mod goals
1. Compelling story inspired by real-world events
2. Set in present-day or near-future
3. Story twists that keep the story moving
4. Wide variety of mission types and scenery
5. Multi-path missions with more then 1 way to complete the mission
6. Consequences for player carelessness, such as being seen means a longer/harder path must be taken.
7. Dynamic light system where many lights can be shot out
8. Battles take place on the ocean, in the air, and on the land.
9. Lots of voice work and background action.

Text update...(Screenshots would only be spoilers at this point)

I had some great story help after sharing this project with my Dad after new years dinner.
I now have what I feel is a rock solid story that will be great for anyone to play. Of course I don't want to give too much away.

The story line involves Pirates, Mercenaries, the Navy, and of course the KPA.
Currently the story will cover two maps, one all on the water, the second will happen mostly on a island with a harbor, subpen and underground facility.
The second may may actually re-use the Castaway island (Re-worked) This would both to save some time and allow me to re-use much of the facility. However the route the player takes will be far different this time.

I am hoping to ditch the nanosuit until the second map, providing I can find a suitable working replacement, however that idea may be cut depending on time.

/Edit: Updated Title based on some new story elements.

I really like this idea, though I no longer play Crysis, or Warhead, it'd be really nice to see a map like this in which creators could focus on effects and performance, instead of landscape and landscape XD Hate to say it but I find a lot of good stuff seems to be left out of most maps for sake of performance, or thrown in with no regard to performance at all. So you get a pretty map that's choppy, or a smooth map that's not as special XD

Looking forward to it though Zappy. Still wish you were working on your previous map, I kind of wanted to see more of that little UAV :P
