Well I was just checking if anyone had lead a group, here's my question:

To cut a long story short: you don't "lead" a mod team when you have no skills. Run the SDK's mod wizard and dive into the documentation from there. Start with the simplest little thing you can imagine and only very, very gradually build up the complexity of your ideas, or else you will be overwhelmed and give up.

Demon and Zombie FPS. It will have psychological horror, as what F.E.A.R. had, and gut wrenching horror, as seen as in many slasher flicks, and Doom 3
