Hi, I'm a composer and 3D artist. Additional skills include intermediate programming (primarily Python) and web design. I rarely check this profile so it's probably best to contact me by the listed email or follow my Deviant Art profile for regular updates.

I've actually never played it :-( Someone I was working with said they'd like the project to use that sort of art, so I used some art they linked me to as a reference and tried recreating it.

After that project fell through I decided to only do paid work for others and develop my own ideas on the side.

JigsawPieces Feb 20 2012, 2:10am replied:

There is no low poly version of the Shinra Building. I'm going for something in between high and low poly with normal and possibly displacement maps. The model in this image is about 45,000 polys. The Midgar model you currently see in the mod (outside the windows) actually has a higher polycount which is mostly due to the buildings on the plate. I'm pretty confident a way can be found to model all of Midgar with a 50,000 - 60,000 poly budget ;)

Also, the model of Midgar you see out the window will have things removed such as the central column, parts of the Shinra Building and generally anything out of view. I might export the plates separately and only include them in cells where you can actually see them. The most demanding area on performance will probably be 69/70... since they're joined in an open manner rather than by doors, plus the open air balcony allows you to see ALL of Midgar basically.

The door at 01:00? Do you mean the emergency exit door? That doesn't open - it teleports you to the stairwell cell or, if you're in the stairwell cell, to floor 59. I'm not aware of any doors going over the walls...

As for animations, I'd love to make new ones for everything! But, as Neomonkeus said it's pretty unlikely at least for the foreseeable future. I do plan on learning to animate at some stage though. But since it's currently only me I really want to prioritize finishing off the existing areas ;) I agree though - some of Fallout's animations aren't to my taste. SMG shooting with one hand... what were they thinking! :P

Once upon a time recreating the whole of Midgar (as a free roaming, playable area) was our goal. That's simply too ambitious, which is why we're making Shinra tower. But that doesn't necessarily mean you'll never be able to visit the plates if things go really well with development ;)

Firstly, did you even read what I said? "PS1 FF7's Midgar wasn't huge". I didn't say anything about what it felt like or what the developers would have done had they had access to better technology. It's a fact that Midgar in FF7 wasn't huge. I fail to see how a tech demo made 8 years later is even relevant to this discussion.

Also, what the characters SAID and what Midgar WAS aren't necessarily the same. Besides, I think the original Midgar Plate, as seen from the Sector 7 slums looks higher than 50m. That's half a football field. But I'm talking about how it appeared, not how it was supposed to. You've completely ignored the context of my comment, which was a reply to RMoT. Congratulations on invalidating your own argument.

I was developing for this mod. I did a LOT of research. I know about the scale mentions on the train trip. If you read what industrialpolygons said in the first news release 'So, how large will Midgar be?' you'll see how the scale was worked out. You could also download the released mod and look for yourself.

As industrialpolygons said, the PS1 FF7's Midgar wasn't huge. You can count how many buildings each sector can fit abreast on your fingers from the opening FMV. That's like 10 buildings. That'd mean Midgar is roughly nine city blocks in the FMV :D

Anyway, since things keep being asked:

-The mod was for Fallout 3
-There was going to be a demo of just one area developed (part of Sector 8)
-Cloud was no longer the player character, rather you made your own
-Other than that, the mission statement remained the same
-Lastly, the reason there are no updates is because development has completely ceased as of January this year

If someone else wishes to continue the project, I'd be willing to donate the models, textures, music, etc that I made. Most things have been released here: Fallout3nexus.com
