We are looking for dedicated, talented individuals who have experience in the following fields:
- Level Design
Applicants must have spent extensive amount of time designing levels in
Valve's Hammer software, 3DS Max, Blender, UnrealEd, or GtkRadiant (preferred). This
covers all aspects of level design, from geometry to custom texture
generation. Certain aspects specific to JKG level design will be taught.

blender to .map patches plugin allows for the export of very efficient
- Concept Art
Applicants must have a general idea of painting, sketching, or creating
artwork which is both technically acceptable in the engine and able to
be entered into the game. Experience in programs such as Adobe Photoshop

- Video Editing and Filming (both JKA and otherwise)
In the video editing track, this is broken up between JKA video editing

Additionally, if you have previously made models for JKA/JKA mods and they contain no original Raven Assets (or could be easily modified to remove those aspects) and you would like to allow us to use it in the Mod we would be happy to accept models of sufficient quality.
- Texture Artists
We have a lot of untextured weapons that could use a lick of paint. Applicants should be comfortable and competent texturing metal and rubber and using modeler-provided Ambient Occlusion maps and Specular lighting details in their work.
Any of these fields of experience are awesome if you have them:
Additionally, JKG is now open-source so if you don't have time to contribute as an Official Developer, you are welcome to make contributions through the github.
If you fit the bill for any or multiple positions, submit an application on our forums today. We also recommend you get in touch with us on our IRC as soon as possible. JKG will provide you with both experience in the video game field, immense satisfaction and interaction with a great community and team! We look forward to completing your training.
