Elysian Fields Update


Hello Everyone, this here is i guess what you can call a update for Elysian Fields, even though it doesn't update a whole lot

I will be covering these items.
1) A Change of Engine
2) What Exactly is MY role in the project aside from just having the Title of Lead Developer
3) Recruitment
4) other Sites Elysian Fields is on


1: Change In Engine


This at the stage of Development we are in is a fairly small change, but Elysian Fields will be swaping to Unity3D the reasons are as follows. Unreal Engine 3 in which the UDK or Unreal Development Kit uses mainly uses unreal script and from what we have found is that this will cause us issues in the long with
creating scrpits that we would need for Elysian Fields to Function, basically Unity3D is better for us in the long run then using UDK



2: What is My Role in Elysian Fields


While no one has asked me this i thought i might just give an over view on what my job is for the game
I am the Lead Developer my role is to Over See the Team and follow the Development of the Game. I also happen to have a few other roles such as

1. Story Line and Campaign Designer
2. Team Coordinator (Recruitment etc)
3. Communality Manager
4. I Will sometimes do a bit of code or models but this is a very small part, seeing I'm still starting out with these two
5. What ever else i can think of and do



3: Recruitment


This is a major part of Elysian Fields Right Now and is something holding us back a lot currently, we lack the team to really get into development, now i hope to change this in the coming weeks with posting on other Websites such a the Unity3D forums and Even DeviantART and what ever else i find that could help me, to put it simple I'm a College Student i don't get paid for this and i can't Pay for this everything i put towards Elysian Fields come from my free time.
Expect a number of posts from me in this area, i may also set up some way for people to look into what roles we have and to apply, currently either you have to PM me via ModDB/IndieDB or E-Mail me i may also include a Web based system.
You can see the Roles @ Ef.madiba127studios.com


4: Websites Elysian Fields is Currently On

Elysian Fields isn't just on ModDB/IndieDB we are also on the Following

I will be spreading around and creating Threads on other Sites to help with Spreading the Word and Helping with Recruitment.

So this will be a standalone game instead of a mod for C&C3 instead? If so, let's just hope Microsoft won't sue you guys for this. Wish you guys all the luck!

as long as we follow the game usage rules we should be all good, and yes we are standalone now instead of a mod

My dream of a Halo Wars(ish) on PC came true! If so, will this be free or something? And the use of UDK will be a great improvement over the SAGE!

Actually that has yet to really be decided. That may (and I use the word "may" lightly) be a possible feature in the final version. I have indeed scene solid evidence of being able to switch between First Person and Real Time Strategy views in the UDK. So this being the case, it may happen...just not right now. More likely in a final version. Hopefully this may clear up any confusion about this.

Thanks for asking. :)
