New location: Greenwich Park. Motorcycle Sketch. Background Information on Greenwich and next update content.

Posted by Albatros44 on Nov 28th, 2010

Greenwich Park - green hills, oaks, pavillions and - probably the most famous sight - the Observatory.

History has been written here many times before, and Zeitgeist doesn't want to make an exception. So, while you're there looking at the architecture and balancing on the Greenwich Meridian, don't forget to look over your shoulder. There are many ways to make history, and you don't want to take the one that includes a pompous funeral...

Credits go to Adrian for the sketch and to Maddin for the gorgeous modeling, texturing and environmental design for Greenwich Park.

In the next update which will most likely be between the first and second week of december, we will include our "ZG community design document\".

After almost one and a half years of pre-production, crafting a team and writing hundreds of pages of story, dialogue, character, vehicle and model descriptions, we have finally been able to compile some of the most interesting facts into one .pdf document for you.

Still, you'll have to read through slightly more than 10 pages, but that should be possible to handle.

: )

Best regards & keep visiting us!,

The Zeitgeist Devs

My imagination tells me that the house belongs to Professor Steiner who is the man behind creating the time travel machine. But hes not home now since hes on a conference with Mr.Blümberg who leads the railway systems. And they want to make a high speed train time vehicle.

sorry, but the short version of the design document is as far as we can go for 2010 :D. We have some other goodies waiting for you, though, so there's not going to be too much space left under the x-mas tree. :)

I agree. It looks a bit bland regarding the lighting and textures. But my guess is that it's not done yet.

You've truly done a great job at capturing this place! I was there not more than a month ago, and that is pretty much exactly how it looks.

Well done, guys.

Nice to see that not all the 'human terrain' is flat, something that can be difficult to achieve in source.
