It's been a couple of days, and I am now certain that this idea will get finished, even if it isn't for a while. As a few people know, and some more might have heard, chaostrom, Somagu, and I have been hitting our heads against each other, brewing up some ideas that we eventually hope to turn into parts of a script-only modification for IVAN based on ancient China, as shown by Romance of The Three Kingdoms. As of now, I've been messing with the scripts, checking on what I can and cannot get done using them. So far, the Yellow Turban Rebellion, the Campaign against Dong Zhuo, and the three kingdoms themselves, are planned to be in, in some way or other. As stated, this is still a very early WIP. An actual version of this won't be posted for some time. So far, UT has been modified a bit, so that Yellow Turban guys are in the place of Jenny and the plants. That also means that the plants won't spawn all over the place in UT3. The CVS is being used as the base for this, and I guess, unless it comes to a point where a character absolutely cannot be made using the existing graphics, only graphics already in IVAN will be used. Feel free to post suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, and other stuff here. If you feel like being a part of this thing, go ahead and say it. Something tells me that, as this gets more complicated, I'll need all the help I can get.

Will it be based off the book or the true history?
Id be interested in helping with what little ways I can

I dunno about chaostrom or Somagu, but, from the start, I've figured that this will mostly be based on the book.

Just posting an update to let anyone keeping track of this know that this isn't dead or anything. I've mostly been posting updates in IRC. For those who don't use IRC, I've changed this:
Guugzamesh is now Lu Bu.
Genetrix has been taken out, and a guard subtype of Zhang Jiao has been added in her place. That means no more carnivorous plants. In addition, a ring of Yellow Turban troops is with Zhang Jiao.
Mjolak is now Sky Sorcher, Lu Bu's halberd.(Of course, Lu Bu has it in his hands.)
UT4 now has a bunch of Yellow Turban soldiers instead of spiders, and one of the golems has been replaced by Zhang Bao. The others are now Yellow Turban troops.
Altars are no longer in the scripts. I don't know if that means they're gone, or if it means that they just won't spawn as often. In addition to this, the altar in the Cathedral is gone.
I still have a lot of work to do on this. It is nice to know that a player might be running around in GC, and suddenly have Lu Bu appear and rip them apart.
EDIT: In a completely random idea-surge, I have decided to name the mod "ROIVAN".(That would be "Romance of IVAN")

You know what I figured out? Coming up with such a name doesn't make you look good
Romance of IVAN = gay
Romance of A Violent Road to Death = twisted psychopathic killer

How about a: Romance of IVAN's ex-wifes boyfriends mother that leads to IVAN's ex-wifes boyfriend spanking the player across face, which leads to players aunts ex-husband re-marries the aunt just to have revenge over IVAN's ex-wifes boyfriend and end up having a shotgun battle with him.
That would be somewhat like RWIVANEWBM.

Just figured that I'd let everyone know that this thing is still being made. The past few days have been a bit...interesting, to say the least. It's been a bit tough to concentrate on any sort of work, but I'll be sure to get back on it soon.
