A game of guns

Multiple rifles, 2 pistols, 2 sub-machine guns, light machineguns, general purpose machineguns and heavy machineguns. Bazookas and a panzerfaust.

This reads like my wishlist for Christmas, but is actually what I am currently working on. In a FPS the guns are very very important, so I’ll try to explain a bit about how I work on balancing and tweaking them.

Intelligence Bulletin Vol 1 * No 14

intelligencebulletingvol01no14

This week we had two field-trips, where we shot some live-action footage for out Launch-trailer – one indoor session in a basement in Central Copenhagen, and one outdoor session in ‘Dyrehaven’ near Copenhagen.

We had a few volunteers from the Reto-Moto-team, but more importantly 9 community-members showed up and helped us make some truly great shots for the trailer. We’re really looking forward to show you all the trailer once it is finished. We’ll probably also have one or two more sessions, and we’ll try to let you know when a few days in advance, so you’ll be able to join us.

Oh, and remember to vote for us at IndieDB’s “Indie of the Year 2011″ awards here – last call for phase one!!!

The Second Trailer-shoot

Wednesday we went to ‘Dyrehaven’ near Copenhagen to make our second Trailer-shoot. We had to cancel the first outdoor session last weekend due to bad weather, but we managed to set up a new session, and we got some really great shots for the trailer.

Thanks to RamboDk and MGMMads for once again to show up and help us!

We’ll probably do another outdoor session within the next month or so, and this time we’ll try to announce it in good time so more community-members will be able to participate.

Send us a mail, if you by now already know that you won’t miss the next Trailer-shoot and the unique opportunity to be immortalized in our launch-trailer. Send a mail to [email protected] with your name and your phone number, and we’ll contact you as soon as we have found a date for the next session.

Objective highlighting

In my ‘sparetime’ I’ve worked a bit on a system similar to the glow effect seen in some other games (eg. Left4Dead), where it’s possible to ‘see’ certain mission objectives through walls in order to aid the player on the way through the game. I know even from myself that it sometimes can be really hard to find certain key points in our game, as the in-game map isn’t that detailed. Below is a screenshot from my current experiment.

Tuesday = new Alpha-invites

Do you know what day it is today? Oh yeah it’s Alpha-key-day! 300 Alpha-keys has just been sent by mail. Remember to join us at the weekly Play Sessions: Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 20.00 – 24.00 CET.

We need community members for a trailer-shoot tomorrow!

We’re currently recording material for our launch-trailer and are looking for community-members who wants to participate.

fisheyeshot Here is a picture from the first session in Copenhagen.

We had originally planned two sessions in the past weekend, but had to cancel the outdoor session Saturday due to bad weather conditions – but now we’re trying again tomorrow!

To be more specific:

  • Wednesday the 7th of December – outdoor trailer-shoot in Jægersborg Dyrehave (near Copenhagen, Denmark) from 09.00 – 16.00

We know that this is with very short notice, but we have to shoot while the weather is good. It looks like snow is coming soon, and we really want to have some good outdoor-shots before winter comes.

Send us a mail if you find this interesting and wish to participate in our launch-trailer tomorrow.

Send the mail to [email protected] with your name and phone-number, and I’ll contact you ASAP with the details. We’re looking for ordinary gamers at any age, so don’t be shy.

The task is unpaid, but we’ll provide food, beverages, an Alpha-key for Heroes & Generals and hopefully a just-as-fun-day as we had last Sunday!

Cheers,
Reto.KenSolo

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