    Who here thinks a Ghost in the Shell mod for UT would kick ass?

    Seriously...

    Seriously, I was browsing around a page with info/pics of the weaponry in GitS ("http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Fuji/3598/gits1.htm". Scroll down to the bottom.), and couldn't help thinking that it would make a GREAT UT mod.

    Derek is M'sian too? I got a friend who's plannin on making a G i t s mod. He's think on whether to use Half-life or UT. I volunteered to help out but i havent got the hang of UnrealScript yet. But then, neither has he.

    Anybody want to help?

    By the way, I'm a Musumune Shirow fan and I love Ghost.

    There was a GITS mod being developed for Quake a while back, but they kinda fell through. As I recall, they were hosted by quake2.com. Are talking about the Manga or the anime?

    Personally I love anything that has Masamune Shirow on it; but I particully favour Appleseed and Ghost in the Shell. The weapons and tanks (Land Mates in Appleseed, something else in GITS) he draws are freakin' AWESOME!!! He's one of the few sci-fi authors/writers who really actually think about what they draw, rather than simply what looks 'cool'

    Derek is American. Me and him got into a huge debate some time back on the Appleseed universe. Been friends ever since=)

    I've long played with the idea of a GITS mod with my chum Janitor209 before I hooked up with INF. We agreed that it would be way to much for a mod to live up to.

    Totally agree on that point.

    Personally if I ever get my modelling skills up to scratch I might start modelling some of the guns and mecha/tanks.

    Looking at how good the inf's weapons are though, all I can say is, "if they can't do it, no-one can"

    Plus you'd need a hell of a lot of graphics power to do some of the scenes (although some of Inoxx's maps kinda had the right idea) My personal belief is not to try to the a straight conversion of the movie, but more an adaption of some parts of the manga.

    But hey, at least all you'll have to do for one of the gun models is adapt the FN-P90 /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif
