Welcome to our monthly overview! It has been only three weeks ago since our last overview, but that does not keep us from producing a lot of work.
Chopin has joined our team as a concept artist, and has a lot of knowledge about the Chinese architecture and culture. He has been busy drawing concept art of the PLA headquarters and the core Tier buildings. We are not going to re-skin the current buildings in Company of Heroes, instead, we will build them completely from scratch, giving the PLA faction characteristic looks. Keep in mind that it is concept art, so it's not the final product, although it certainly is a very important guideline on designing new buildings.
The looks of the buildings are a mixture of both a typical Chinese building style, combined with an industrial look. The first building is the PLA Headquarters, the core building of the PLA faction. The Tier1 and Tier2 building follow a southern Chinese style and are focused mostly on infantry training. In contrast the Tier 3 and Tier 4 building are more influenced by industrial looks, designed to produce heavy vehicles like the Type 96 Main Battle Tank. But have a look yourself:
If you didn't do this already, you should have a look at the PLA tier layout on our homepage to get a better idea about the use of these individual buildings. If you want to discuss about our mod or give critique, don't hesitate to drop by on our Forums.
We sincerly hoped you have all enjoyed another of our monthly overviews. Our next overview will be on May the 29th. See you on moderncombat.blacksandstudio.com
