In which i ask you guys for assistance with this project because quite frankly i have got to a point where i almost have something playable but i am in need of a Animator and or Rigger and a Programmer. Amongst other things i will be hiring for a development team.

Ok first off i know it has been awhile since i have posted any real activity on this project however this is mainly due to real life matters invading alot of my time im sorry for the inactivity but i can't really do much about it as you might of guessed. Anyway with that cleared up i do actually have some progress which will perhaps be of interest to you. For starters i am beggining to get a better understanding of the other aspects of UDK other than the artistry for instance i have had a bash at coding in a test weapon so i can get a playable version of the game underway. I know this isnt much and i don't claim to be any good at programming whatsoever it is not my specialism at all but it goes someway into explaining my plee of needing an animator and a U script programmer and then i feel the project will have a base pre alpha which will be better than what is frankly a overly drawn out concept of my idea for the game.

Heres what i have so far (Basically a fully functioning custom weapon without anims)

In other news i have also begun working on creating the custom textures for the alpha which will hopefully include a test village fully textured and basic game mechanics. Heres progress so far on the basic esential concrete pavement texture (Room is temporary just to preview the texture)
