Quote: I have started work on a gigantic ocean off the Gold Coast in the Abecean Sea. This will be full of islands for you to explore with tons of secrets and unscaled enemies. You will encounter occasional "oh crap, I better run" enemies, especially the Ocean Giant and Giant Saltwater Slaughterfish, however those enemies will certainly be carrying valuable items, but you will have to wait until you are a very high level to even stand a chance against them. If you have Jason1's pilotable ship mod, this will be a great place for you to sail around in.
If you've ever played the original EverQuest, I intend for this ocean to be much like the ones you'd find in that game. A gigantic world space with tons of islands, each with their own "theme," such as an island with a friendly village on it, to an island with a camp fo bandits, to an island full of gigantic monsters. Fast travel will be turned off and the map will only show the main islands, but there will still be boats that you can catch rides on (could be ones that will actually move or ones like in morrowind that teleported you places.) I feel that this will make a much better exploring experience for people who like this kind of stuff. I hope to make it so that you will always be finding new secrets.
Vast new ocean area to explore
Over 20 islands, from a tropical island to snowy mountaintops
Hundreds of new, un-scaled enemies, loot, dungeons, and quests
An epic main questline
2 new factions and tons of new sidequests
Many new towns with 2 port cities selling boats you can pilot yourself
Ship to ship combat
Hundreds of new, retextured objects and landscape
2 New buyable houses with scenic views
Hours of extra gameplay
New, original music
Innovative ship sailing system
Hey, I'm Marrx, the project lead of the ocean mod. I just found this thing posted here, I didn't know it was up here Oh well, thanks for the post! Anyway, I guess I could answer some questions here.
-- lol is there a way you can make the boat look like the Black Pearl from Pirate of the Caribbean? --
No, the boats you will use in the faction quests and will see around the ports will not be made (at least intentionally) to look like the black pearl, which means, there will be new meshes for the boats, since the ones that come with the game are pathetic.
-- will there be diferent types of boats for sale? small rowboats, all the way up to huge batleships and cargo vessels!? --
There are different kinds of boats, yes, but any time you are in possession of a boat (i.e. in one of the faction quests) you are stuck with the same boat, but you can buy upgrades for cannons, hull, etc.
-- can we get a pecentage% on how much is completed and how long it might take you to finsh --
Right now, maybe 5 - 10%. 95% of the landscape is done, but not all of it has anything on it yet. Port Tinash is almost finished with the main part of its makeover, next would be Nereida. The Pirate faction is planned out, the Imperial Navy faction is about 50% planned out, but no quest material is actually in the mod yet.
Hopefully, the mod will be completed in a few months minimum. To speed things up, if any of you know any really really good modders that aren't too busy with their own projects and would be interested in working on this, send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org

nice going man hey can you maybe put a quest to your little mod there for me plz in the Bahadur Desert. The Spiderking's Pyramid i have a story here maybe you can make something out of it .
The Spiderking was a powerful magician and he was called Arach aswell, he ruled all tribes in the desert to then strike Detwach. The attacks and the following pillages put fear in all of the surroundings. The nomads honoured their spiderking, his most trusted guards rode on big spiders over the battlefields. On his high rise of power he suddenly died. He was buried in a gigantic pyramid close to Cerand, a pyramid that was guarded by countless spiders and demons. His empire collapsed under a bloody civil war, but the pyramid has been standing untouched in nearly 400 years and the pyramids shadow still darkens the Caravanroad to Faar. The pyramid lies 1 mile south east of the Caravantown Cerand. Cerand that lies on the border to the enourmous Toora Desert is a link between Detwach and Gwarch and the distant Faar. Faar is an exotic land full of magic and beautiful women, atleast if you believe the tales of the Caravan drivers. Toora Desert is big, dangerous, and filled with bloodthirsty nomads. Few dares to travel along the long caravanroad alone.
you may change it to fit the Bahadur Desert but plz take this little story to a quest maybe.
An absolutely fantastic mod my friend!!! Ive been waiting and waiting for this exact mod to come out for some time now and it really seems to be coming up really well!! I hope you can release soon as I really cant wait Oh and why not make it something like Pirates of the Carribean? With a ship that looks more like the Black Pearl like the what Dkpowa and marrx said but its up to you. Good going mate keep up the good work! And yeah the screenshots look great!
