Welcome, to another Project Earth news update, Firstly we would like to thank all those who participated in the competition
Fort MacArthur Los Angeles California
We would like to show off some new works that has been done by our level designers, based on actual references from the infamous "Fort MacArthur". Fort MacArthur is a former United States Army installation in San Pedro, Los Angeles, California (now the port community of Los Angeles). The fort is named in honor of Lieutenant General Arthur MacArthur. His son, Douglas MacArthur, would later command American forces in the Pacific during World War II. For more information on Fort MacArthur head on over to the wikipedia and check it out (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_MacArthur)
Fort MacArthur will be seen in our upcoming tech demo which will be released at the start of next year which will show game mechanics, level designing and hopefully some working examples of the ideas which we believe is vital for a game ; vaulting obstacles, intelligent teammates, squad commands just to name a few.
Hostilis one of our level designers has been hard at work modelling Fort MacArthurs Radiator room, this will be a fully playable area. To take a look at how the real thing looks, here is the link to do some comparisons (http://www.nonplused.org/panos/fort_mac/html/04.html) - Please keep in mind these are early WIP.
