Hey - as you've guessed there is a mod underway called Battle For The Caribbean
-- We are using BFME2, without the expansion, i don't know if you'll be able to use it with ROTWK....
The idea of this mod is to scrap the current factions and in their places have 2: Pirates and The Royal Navy
Naval combat will become a large focus on the game including new ships, hero ships, Ring hero ships and seperate upgrades. (Even a resource gathering ship :o)
We're using the great Pirates of the Caribbean films for ideas and following that for some heroes, units and powers. For example; the ring will be replaced with the "Heart of Davey Jones" which enables you to recruit The Flying Dutschman (Ring-hero ship).
Hopefully we also plan to create many new neutral buildings/enemies which can be used in various ways. Things like abandoned vessels which explode if you ram into them by accident, sea monsters, Tia and her house which spawns treasures (etc.) and moreeee!
Thats the main jist of it, i don't want to spoil too much soo there it is!
At the moment its just a mate and myself doing everything and we're getting a fair bit done but later on we may be recruiting for some extra help. (- if so it will be probably for mapping, posssibly voices and if i will be lucky enough animation... - although we can do the basics that make do...)
Voilla. (For the time being...)
