Facility Backzone
Mapped by Fourtecks, Facility_Backzone has a lifespan dating back to before alpha 1 in our mod. Originally by the now retired GE:S mapper, Jeo, the level has certainly come a long way since then. Fourtecks took on this task because of his dedication and vision to create a seamless transition to his counterpart map, Facility. The texture work and lighting in this map are able to draw you in and feel as though you are bond or 006 with this movie inspired recreation.

For a map much loved in the GE:S community, it was certainly unintended to have it miss out in beta 3. But, once you see this refined masterpiece you will be excited for it in ways not possible in the alpha or beta 001 era. One aesthetic improvement of note was the remaking of the bottling tanks (where bond places mines in the movie). The scale of the model is now fixed, so where you got caught up running inside them in the older versions, simply won't occur now. This level is well worth the wait, indeed!

If you are interested in more about this map, from the horses mouth, Mike (Fourtecks) has a blog on our forums in which he is giving many insights into the level. Check it out HERE

Extras
Last report we mentioned a character going into game, an update to runway, and concept art we have been seeing internally from our recruited 2D artists. Here are those and some more for your visual enjoyment!


Female Scientist Render [click image for large size!]

She is going in-game as we speak and belongs to the Mi6 Team. Model and texture by Spider.


Runway addition [click image for large size!]

This sniper tower is to replace the old building attached to the side of the map. The new structure is nostalgic to the original game and also looks great, while giving the elevation to see and snipe enemies all the way across the runway.


Concept Art [click image for large size!]


With Hypergear, and the recent addition of Mcharris to the team, the project now has two dedicated concept artists to help with the unknown design elements such as train shown above, by Hypergear. Mcharris is also working on All Bonds concept work to assist our character artists, but for copyright reasons we can't show them here. You should check the forums in coming days we may be able to show them there.


Rolling Explosives on Backzone [click image for large size!]

This is just fun, who doesn't want to see rolling explosions on the revamped, and beta 4 ready facility_backzone?!


Next update will be focusing on code elements from Killermonkey and Viashino, specifically shining some light on upcoming game-modes. Plus some other super secret things for now. We hope you enjoyed our teaser trailer and the other media in this update. Thanks as always for your support!

Remember, our forums and website (being revamped) are always welcome places to hang out, support us and find more!

Whaat? I love the explosions.

I mean yeah they are lame. Did you notice they didn't put hands on most of the guns? So unrealistic. /sarcasm

All respect, has he seen or played GE64? The explosions have been re-created specifically for nostalgia more than super realism. There may always be tweaks but fundamentally this is the style.

Great work guys. The laser sounds a bit off, but I never used it much in the original so no loss there. :)

The laser is one sound that is in WIP stage. It may get tweaked for the release.

Good observation, we are trying to work with the particle effect for the laser tracer. It is very difficult to get the look we want and to make it not look weird.

Never played Goldeneye on the N64, but I still think this looks great anyway. However, surely you must be able to find some time to replace those HL2 explosion sounds?

What are you talking about? That sound is completely custom...

I'm sure I heard the HL2 explosion sounds in there. Although I had the volume low due to it being night.

This is going to be fantastic when this comes out. One problem I have with this though: why doesn't the rocket launcher make the same screeching noise like the n64 original?!

This is being addressed. You will be happier with the release build sound for RL :)
