Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone!

Hopefully you all have a great night and a great new years too.

I have to work tomorrow so i can’t have a big one, so i instead had a few quiet drinks at home and did a bit of work on the island. I decided to add some clouds for something a little different and i was surprised at how easy it is to get nice results. Still needs a lot more around the outside of the island and more variety and sizes overhead, but its a start.

Sunrise - With Clouds!

This shot was taken at 6:07am, with the sun rising from the south end of the island.

Seeya next year!

  1. You should check out the InGen’s list for dinosaur ideas :), and try to make them move in herds.

  2. Have you seen this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAeHPn6vNNw ? you will remeber this : “Dont go into the long grass!!”

    Also you might pick up some ideas from the game : Jurassic Park Operation Genesis πŸ™‚

  3. And Happy New Year you too πŸ˜€

  4. Just wanted you to know I love what you’re doing! I wish the best of luck to you in finding other partners to help you out, though it is reassuring that you are very dedicated to this project.

    • Thanks mate.

      Things are going well and i’ve got a few people that are already on board. Once things are more settled, ill make some announcements.

  5. Hope you had a happy new year. I hope you keep working on this project. It looks amazing!

  6. I have to wonder, will there be Physics from the actual Trespasser, because I loved the Arm movement, If this can be Re-implicated it would be amazing.

    • Cryengine 2 has very good physics already, they will do the job nicely. The Arm will return, but there will be the option to use either arm, and for certain objects you’ll be able to use both arms at the same. This will be a simple one key action to simplify interaction with larger objects. No more messy crate and barrel stacking πŸ™‚

  7. This looks amazing! There is a FPS of Jurassic Park coming out soon, it’s basically just a mod to Half Life 2 but they have been working on it for a while now but it looks good, the environment isn’t as beautiful as what you are doing but it is interesting. Also somebody is doing a remake of Trespasser with Unity 3D, it’s easier to use than CryEngine 3 so they are further along but from what I’ve seen of it, it doesn’t feel that much like trespasser. What you have done so far is the best I’ve ever seen, this picture makes me feel like I’m alone, on a deserted island. I felt like that a lot while playing trespasser, especially at the end, with the wind whistling and the sun setting, as if you were the last person on Earth. Are you having that whistling at all?

  8. “This shot was taken at 6:07am,
    with the sun rising from the south
    end of the island.”
    Shouldn’t the sun rise from the east side of the island? (And, of course, set on the west side?) =|

    • You can adjust the sunrise any way you like. I simply chose to have the sun rising from the south for that shot. I wont know exactly where i want the sun to rise till the end of development. It may not be accurate, but if it makes for a better game, i’m willing to let it slide.
