Our new mapper is remaking the hospital room where balto (you, the player) wakes up!

Posted by zonbie on Jun 30th, 2010

Hello guys, my name is ben and I'm the most recent addition to the ever-growing Balto mod team. As mapper, my job is to take the story ideas of team and transform them into fun, good-looking gameplay. And so.......without further ado, here's the beginning of my recent map work.

This hospital room is similar to one found inside the Elmendorf Air Force Base Hospital, near Anchorage, Alaska. We plan on having the player (Balto) visit various places in Alaska, as well as Europe and the Middle East. I have read about 1/3 of the story so far and it gets pretty intense action-wise. I have planned out much of the first part of the game and there will be much more added to this location as time moves forward. So get ready because it's going to be an awesome adventure.

Unfortunately, our work in other areas (modeling, A.I., etc) has been somewhat slow. We here at the Balto mod are hoping to pick up a few extra members over the next few weeks and expand our work flow to more people. We are diligent and thorough in our work so please dont be intimidated by teh scope of our project. Here's a list of what we could really use right now :)

Modeler (weapons)
Modeler (environment/props)
Modeler (characters (why would you want to play as a human in a Balto mod)
Programmer (creating new weapon scripts, implementing terrorist AI techniques)
Texture Artist (for weapons / props / terrorists)
??? What else can you do that would help out our mod team? Message us!!

We hope you like our Balto mod as much as we do, and do justice to Balto fans everywhere. please join or watch as we get bigger and better than ever!!
