Exit Messerschmitt bf109E

A behind the scenes animation timelapse (×12 speed) from sit pose to in game.

This time doing my contribution to the blog I fell in a nasty hole just before the goal line. With a week to go my machine decided to crash and the time for blogging was cut to a minimum.

Even with the strong head wind I decided to try and do another animation timelapse. The last one I did I really liked myself and got a lot of nice feedback. [Strong headwind is good for airplane take-off and landing, Ed.]

Now… exiting and entering airplanes is yet another task that I hadn’t had time for – and as I now have been officially bugged with it as well this is the one I chose.

I promise next time I will try and choose something different than an exit animation ;-)

    I see assault team Insignias on the plane :).
    Aswell good job on animation it looks pretty smooth.
    And will we see Irwin videolog ? Those vlogs bring additional media attention and shows how the game looks like to lots of people.

    It’s a bf 109E
    Maybe you got it confused with the Focke-Wulf Fw 190? Wonder if that’s in the pipeline haha.

    Excellent animation !

    However , isn’t that bf109 a bit too high poly? ;P

    Totally unrelated to your work, but I noticed a change in the GUI. Will they change the health system?
    I like it how it is right now, you have 3 dots that correspond to the amount of health you can restore. It’s a cool concept.

    I noticed a bar for armor (?) too, hmm.

      Maybe there will be vests for different encounters like anti explosives vest, bullet proof vest, suicide vest…

    Jak se jmenuje ten program ve kterým vytváříte hry?

    @ SkyDaggers : Videolog coming up coming up…. :D

    @ Baryonyx : My stupid fingers wrote to fast and wrote 190 instead of 109. So sorry no mystery or exciting things in the pipeline there :-)

    @ Babylonjoke : you think so ? :P

    @ Applay and Skydaggers : GUI is still mutating – trying to find the best suited… its a process :D

    @ ivasta : For animation, rigging, skinning and modelling we use mainly SoftImage – but modelling also involves zbrush, xnormals and a lot of other software… The one in the video is SoftImage (with a bar of custom tools (synoptic to be precise))

    Thanx for the feedback guys.. :)

      Yeah , that looks jolly good!

      As I always sed your engine handle quite good the high poly models.

      This is the first game where I see tank tracks modelled!

      Keep it up guys!!

      P.s. the new Stuart texture is absolutly amazing.

    I hope you will create a Spitfire too! Also a weather report before start would be nice, it is terrible too fly in dense fog :(

What are you waiting for soldier? We need heroes on the battlefield and generals to lead them!
