PVKII Creator Roald gets lost in the desert to overhaul a classic - Desertruin! Check out some new media from development!

Posted by on

Here's Roald with his "Desertruin Overhaul 2.0" dev journal for a media update!

As you all know the map 'Desertruin' is originally created by yeehaw
@LATTEH decided to give it a big overhaul but unfortunately he wasn't able to finish this project.

I have the honor to pickup where Latteh left and use the amazing assets he created for this map such as textures and models.
@PhoneBooth will be creating some more textures and @Momo will be working on some more new models for this map.

You guys probally don't know me. I am a applicant for Level Designer and Enviorment Artist to join the PVKII development team.
The ruins and broken structures in the latest version are really eye catching but also makes it hard to navigate arround the map and to optimise the map for some smooth gameplay. My goal is to clean some stuff up and simplify some stuff in the basic geometry. Afther that I will see what extra's I can add like broken stuff, traps and so on.
Below some screenshots of my progres so far. If you guys have feedback and/or some cool ideas I would be happy to know!

In just a few days I managed to create some basic geometry for the last part of the map. After this it's time to add a lot more details, custom assets and special effects!

Wow, you guys never fail to impress. This mod has been going for so long. :O

Haven't been able to play lately, but at some point I surely will again. Keep up the great work! It's really appreciated.
