Formerly meant to be a L4D campaign, I am making various retro NY settings in highly detailed 3D for the Unreal 3 Engine.

Unreal 3 engine is free, and so is this project. Without buying any games (like you have to do when its a mod), without spending one penny.. You'll be able to walk around inside the World Trade Center again as it was 25 years ago.

You'll be able to see Times Square before the urban renewal of the 90s.

Unreal 3 Engine provides maximum quality. See this video of Unreal 3 in action.

Source engine, I do not miss you. :V

Help is welcome.

PM Me if you're interested

Did anyone here capture any photos or videos of the World Trade Center?

I'm having trouble finding references for the lobby of the towers in general. Most shots are viewing the windows/exterior columns, and not the interior. Majority of references are not the elevators, or showing the hallway in the center of the core that cuts through on the concourse level.

I'm trying to find stuff from 70s or 80s preferably, but even something from as late as 2001 will suffice, better than nothing.

Ask around will ya? It has me kinda stumped, because these blueprints only tell so much.

I'm ready to start detailing and texturing the inside, just need more references.

The sooner I get that done, I'll have a demo for you guys ;)

I'm releasing these so you can look at them or try building a little yourself. There is a large VTF texture included. It is needed for the "WTC" map...

It would be awsome if this mod had characters/ weapons from the movie and I suppose you could make the zombies look like the crazies. That is presuming the mod is based on the movie rather than just the name?

The mapping is theme based.

Other than that, it is L4D characters with zombies.

I couldn't get too heavy into Escape From New York because of copyrights. So I'm just borrowing some of the themes from the setting.

For instance, a city that is a prison or deportation zone.. and in this case additionally a quarantine zone.
As well as it being walled in, and patrolled by helicopter.

The backstory politics would also be the same. Dystopian imperialistic police state. United States Police Force.
Another World War going on or went on.

Excellent. One of my all time favorite movies meets one of my all time favorite gaming foes - zombies. Wish I could play it.

I need people to join the project.
When it comes time to fully detail everything, it is going to be ALOT of work.
