Your eyes slowly adjust to the gloom but immediately start to sting. Dust and plaster has fallen down from the ceiling, and you taste it in your dry mouth. Slowly the ceiling lights flicker on as the emergency generator starts up, and people begin to pick themselves up... ...Its August 9th. You've just survived the biggest killer of man in history. In 30 minutes, 3.6 billion people have died across the globe. Unknown to you, the population of the UK has quartered, and will continue to drop. You think briefly of your family before being dragged onto your feet by your platoon sergeant... "Come on son, there's work to be done!" Comes the gruff voice from the dark... but not yet... for now we wait... in the dark...

The first image is the Wick Road Fallout shelter, we're not sure how, but the seal was breached by something, No survivors are expected, but we need to go down there and salvage what we can. Full NBC protection when your down there, especially on the first floor, the amount of fallout that fell through the hole is immense, and wont of been able to disperse. But stay armed at all times as you can see from the next shot.

Secondly an poster was found on Inkerman St., its rebel propaganda, but if they get the two or 3 hours free from our us to be able to do shit like this, it tells the public that they are holding no mans land. I want it scrubbed down, and if it don't budge, take the whole wall down. I do not want to be seeing this again. Moving on.

We next have the Old ford tube station. Entranced was sealed off during the 4 minute warning, we don't know how many corpses are down there, those who didn't risk the tunnels would of been starved or suffocated. Its the quickest way to get into Wick road shelter, so we need to get it cleared. A Sapper from 125 Field coy is attached and will sort out the generator so theres nothing to worry. Oh and this rumor about wild animals seen in the area, i don't want to spread panic, but again make sure you are armed, i don't know about you but i don't want no 'American werewolf in London' running along a deserted underground station scenes coming true to me. One last thing...

Finally our SLR L1A1 (Synthetic skin), this picture was found on a rebel corpse. they have a lot of our weaponry, i want the areas cleared after fire-fights, after every contact i want ALL weapons, rebel or ours, and all ammunition cleared. Right, get some sleep, we've got a long day tomorrow...

Looks pretty cool and I like the way the news is presented as a speech.
However, you should have someone proof-read your writing as there are several spelling and grammatical errors!

Yes, please do proof-read, I was enjoying that, was almost ruined by the poor grammar and sentence structure. Good to see an update, haven't seen one from you guys in about 2 months, but I guess my mods fasted there for longer ;)

your = possessive
you're = you are
It's basic English!

"those who didn't risk the tunnels would of been starved or suffocated."
It's would HAVE not would OF. You would say "I have been starved", not "I of been starved". The addition of the word 'would' doesn't change anything.

Sorry to be so pedantic but someone representing this mod should make sure they get these things right as the mod's image depends on it and some people (like me) see this as lazy and a bit silly. If you're lazy about simple things like this, what does that say about the rest of the mod?

ahh yes but now you are delving into something that s completely different.

I am talking/writing in a cockney dialect and its something i cant and indeed wont change for anyone.

I have thanked you guys for the constructive criticism, but for goodness sake this post is about the media, not the bloody text that went with it :p

Well then you have missed the Cockney dialect by a long shot.

I would argue it's all media. If it wasn't so important then why write it? You are trying to sell this mod. Sell it the best you can. (I mean promote not literally sell)

Just a suggestion. Consider every aspect of the image you are presenting for this mod. I don't want to play a mod with sloppy writing.

the screens have no effect on me, they are just walls, no serious effort has gone in to lighting, mood atmosphere, textures or even structural lickness to the real thing (ie underground), and finally a big turn off which will make me walk away from this mod is the spelling, is totally abismal, and shows that a spell checked did not run through this. Lets hope next time brings us something we can go wow this is the 1985 mod!! not oh its them again :( !

Only one of those pictures needs work on lighting in my opinion. Also, what does it matter how someone spells? Your grammar is nothing to be proud of yet I don't go "I hate Mrksmt9 because he can't put together a thoughtful sentence". I understand you have a right to your opinion but try to keep in mind which part of the post is important.
