This is still in the air, but I think moving to the Call of Chernobyl platform is the best bet to get a working mod out. I've done enough digging to know that porting the story to the better platform is easier then trying to make Clear Sky work right.
I hate the idea of abandoning CS, but the game is incredibly dated at this point and the SDK is just fucking awful. Team Epic has made an awesome mod with CoC with an updated tool kit that we don't have to worry about crashing at the slightest error. And I think we can get the story ported over fairly quickly.
CoC includes all the maps and then some from all three games. Clear Sky only cover's the original SoC maps. Since CoC has all these extra maps, it would probably be criminal to not use them. I don't mean all, just to expand Scar's story to include some.
So....any story tellers want to sign on? We need someone who can write dialog and come up with a script that is similar to the original story, but expanded on.
NOTE: I'll post a dev blog later this week once we figure all of this out. Also, we aren't throwing anything away other then the base game. Clear Sky is basically a beta for Call of Pripyat, 99% of the assets are interchangeable and its just a matter of taking the CS story, plugging it into CoC, and expanding upon it. I'm going to see if there is an original story to CS also, I bet there is a crapton of cut content.
