    Welcome back Project Confrontation Community!

    This week in community, we have been busy social media wise. Interaction has definitely picked up this month! Thank you all for your support and interest, its humbling, grateful and exciting!!

    We were invited to be guest on the Spicy Sausage Podcast hosted by Tawok, SkiMask and MR.BLONDE. These guys have been great and doing great things for the SOCOM community! That was a great interview and opportunity to get to know the dev team and catch up on development!

    A community member asked if we are worried if Sony were to feed off the waves that our Project has picked up on as of late, start showing some type of interest and reviving there series? We are not worried about that for as of right now there is no news and we are building our own name and brand! We can not slow down due to uncertainty, uncertainty is the reason behind our passion and purpose!

    There is also talk of us releasing on XBOX first. Just in discussion. We know who and where our fan base is. This Project is for you the Socomers with intentions to gain new Socomers/gamers/shooter fans every where! We will do all and everything we can to get Project C released on the PS4 first. That’s our bread and butter, that is where we take off right off the back, that is where we G^ just like old times! We know where we need to be!

    Back to business, we have the Spicy Sausage Podcast with the ProjectCDevTeam video below and check out the rest of Devblog #20, more progress and great work by the team…G^

    Hello again everyone! For the past 2 weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time on Geronimo(our second map). I have made progress painting some of the outside walls of the compound with Substance painter. It takes a lot of time to hand paint everything to give it a one of a kind look. Painting will be an ongoing process so you may see placeholder textures until final painting is complete.

    I’ve also started to model and place more assets in the surrounding area of the compound. I am trying to build it as close to real scale, and look, as possible but adding more elements and assets for good gameplay. This map will have multiple ways to get around the compound and many breach points. Everything is subject to change as we get further into testing it. Here are some W.I.P. SS!

    I have been looking into camera FX as well over the last few days. Here is a very early WIP of Night vision.

    Thanks everyone! See you in the next one….

    Welcome back and hope everyone has or had a great spring break.

    Lets jump right into my last few weeks of development.

    Most of my time was spent playing around with speedtree, I made a bunch of new trees, grass and vines. The speedtree software is great and will make for better maps.

    Here is some grass and vines I made… Now I’m just testing, so this will be adjusted as we go so keep that in mind as I went a bit crazy with the grass and vines.

    The last few days, Harrydangler and I have spent some time working on the graphics so we are hoping it shows in this weeks dev blog. We still have tons of stuff to retexture but that process has started so away we go.

    Some of the biggest changes were to the skybox, ground, textures and water color.

    HUD
    What’s up everyone. Since the last devblog I have been working on a few different design elements for Project Con, mostly the new overhauled UI, so I don’t have much HUD wise to show. I did manage to make up a concept scope. We plan on having several different scopes for zoom levels, but here is the first initial design.

    Also here’s an early look at binoculars as well…

    In the future I will have more HUD stuff to show off once we’ve got a good chunk of it integrated into Unity.

    UI
    As I mentioned, the past few weeks i’ve been putting most of my focus on the UI, since it was in desperate need of an overhaul. Below i’m going to post some photoshop concepts that i’ve made for various pages. Certain elements might change, but the overall feel I’m really digging. Also please take note that many images you see on ,for example, the main menu are just filler for the time being, obviously we can’t use SOCOM Confrontation images within’ our game. Enjoy!

    When you say release on xbox first, do you mean console wise. or would it be released on xbox before pc also? In regards to consoles, I think going the xbox route would be the best idea since MS has that Xbox Live creators program. With that being said, would you make this a "Play anywhere" title if possible? I could see the game being more populated this way. Also for selfish reasons, I'd love to be able to play on my xbox when my wife uses the PC for work, or when she hogs the tv, I can get on PC lol.

    ***Side note - when you guys need a few extra testers, I think it would be great if you gave access to everyone who participated in the UI design contest :).
