Elite is a modern, tactical first person shooter, containing no sci-fi elements. Forcing the players to use tactics and teamwork in order to win, Elite will not be any new "Run & Gun Shooter", as seen in games such as "Call of Duty" and "Battlefield 3". Centering about modern days special forces, players can create their own characters for use in single player and multiplayer, using a very smart character customization system, where it also is possible for players to have as many characters as preferred. Having sophisticated planning stages, a very special weapon view, singleplayer campaign and a large multiplayer rank system, Elite is something different from other games. Offering both Close Quarter Battle and large out-door environments, weapon choices will be essential for the operations in both offline as well as online mode. Long assault rifles will bang against walls in room fight, and submachine guns doesn't have a very far range for long engagements.

We decided to do a small presentation of the Modeling team and some of their work.

Posted by on

Hey! I am Andreas, the Project and Art Lead of the upcoming title called 'Elite'. My work includes the creation of our Game Design Document, Team Management, Researching and Level Design. I am here to present you for our Modeling Team, as well as showing you a bit of our work, which is still Work In Progress.

Our Senior Modeler, Justin, has been busy not only creating different pistol models based on our 'Objects Wikipedia', but he has also been leading the Modeling Team. Here he is introducing organization elements, maintaining strong communication with the Lead team, as well as guiding the different modeling teams. He is also leading one of our small Modeling teams, the 'Weapons' team. His job there is to get proper structure and organization, as well as ensuring that all deadlines for work are met. Aleks Markelj who was in the Weapons team, worked close together with Justin and they got some good progress on the Glock 17 as seen below. The Heckler & Koch USP is not far from being finished, and the Colt M1911 is being worked on as well.

In the 'Indoor' team has work gone into Architecture and indoor props (chairs, tables, etc). The team is build up upon Larry, whom is the Leader for this team, then we got Angel, and last but not least we got Piotr. These 3 guys are working close together, and they are currently working with the texturing of their objects. Larry has done different Chairs and Sofas, Angel has done various 'different' assets such as computers, TV's, to different fences and signals. Piotr has been working hard on the creation of bottles and boxes as well as a few tables, and he is helping with exporting as well. Here is an 'old' TV:

A wooden fence:

A PC Laptop:

And last but not least, a Primitive Chair:

Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoyed this little update and the little bit of work we showed you. We do have an Environment- and Gear team as well, but both of those are not filled, meaning work has not began on these teams. Special thanks to Vinnie, our CE 3 expert. We're expecting our website to be up by next week (hopefully Monday!), and there we will upload both Features and a Q&A. Don't forget to like our Facebook and follow our Twitter, and we're still looking for a few roles! (see below)

Nice model work here. It'll probably be a while but I'm excited to see that Glock animated as well as all the other handguns :)

Haha, indeed, reptiledude99! Weapons are of course created in different parts for animations. We're also working on the H&K USP and Colt M1911, so stay tuned for more updates!
