The last weeks I worked on an interesting project with my company for a client from virtual training (serious gaming) sector.
The project was done with the Leadwerks 2.4 egnine which is really powerful if it's used right by an artist and coder.
I think the snippet from my company website explains the project quite well:
"The city environment of a sub-urb in Kabul was done for "serious gaming" purposes which simply means a simulation of trained tasks in a save environment - like a flight simulator. Our task was to develop seven buildings with complete additional props setup. The client will add vehicles and people with his simulation editor to fill the environment and set up misions."
Doing the project was pretty much straight forward. Collecting references, thinking about what buildings would make sense. Extracting textures - mostly for billbaords - from the references. Other textures are from CG-textures which is great source for an artists needs. I also used the decals from there which saved me a lot of time. After doing the assets all stuff has been added into Leadwerks Editor. Last thing was light setup and a small surrounding mountain terrain like Kabul has.
Leadwerks did very well using the project. I get a decent performance around 40-50 fps on maximum details with an 1680px screen resolution. Most work was involved into modeling but Leadwerks handeld the polycount of the city well plus "ADN Shadereditor" was a real timesaver although I have some wishes for improvements in further versions.
I'm now looking into new journeys with Pure3d like doing arch-viz based realtime work and a CG rendered job for the next time.
But if you like my the work of my company don't hesitate to contact me for art contracts or outsourcing game-development work. We are specialized on high-quality work and environment prototyping. For large tasks we work together with freelancers to asure best quality. :)
