Pointe du Hoc
An Enemy Territory mapping project
Well, actually I wanted to wait a little longer until I announce it here, but I have to rush an official post, since Mateos already posted .
I’d like to start by thanking Backsnipe for having my back, although I just let him hang in there!
So…I’ve been busy the last couple of weeks and I hereby present you the Resurrection of the project. Although I never clearly stated the project halted, I haven’t worked on it for months and I actually wasn’t about to take it back on. Well, I guess mapping is just too much fun for me.
Since I already had the bunker structures and the cliff, Backsnipe created, it wasn’t really hard to come up with this in a couple of weeks. I’m quite astounded of the possibilities the creation of .ase models gives you.
Since I couldn’t find proper prefabs of the stuff I wanted, I created several brushmodels and converted them to .ase.
This is my little collection of .ase models so far:
This model-pack it is pretty nice to work with, since they keep everything quite simple yet detailed enough for me.
Now to see the model-pack in action I present you several Work-In-Progress shots of the map.
Starting with the overall planned layout:
What you see here is just an editor shot of the whole level edited in Photoshop.
I think the legend explains everything you need to know. The red part of the map understandably is the non-accesible region of the map. As stated this layout is the planned one (not scripted yet) and there willl be several changes made in the progress of the project.
Now for the actual Work in progress shots:
I hope you like the new map, since this time, I don’t plan on restarting it again!
I would be glad for feedback/ideas and everything.
You will recognize several prefabs I pulled out of other maps but I hope I’ll be forgiven.
As for Backsnipe:
I’m really sorry for letting you hang in there without any notification! I would be really glad if I could win back your interest in this project! Although I’m currently doing fine on my own, I would love to have you on this project aswell, since I suppose I’ll reach my limits soon!
