GES Update 08/18/11 Development & Developers!
« on: August 18, 2011, 01:53:33 pm »


Hey loyal fans and friends,

Arising from the news post ashes, like a (..well you know the analogy..), comes GoldenEye: Source with an August update for our fans and followers alike. It promises to be one hell of a post for those wanting to know what 4 months looks like from the internal developer side of the modification, to the external results awaiting you, created by our many dedicated developers.




We know, you just want the pretty pictures! First, we want to update you on a recent shift that actually benefits you greatly! From time to time an internal review must be done. A cleansing? Necessary evil? The harsh reality? No, the GoldenEye: Source team calls it a necessary good. An opportunity to open our doors and get more happening for our fans! We'll address those opportunities below. This change is in effect across all levels of leadership and production roles. The biggest of note is the long overdue appointment of Killermonkey, our lead coder, and now first in-charge Managing Director. Backing him up in our second tier leadership is Luchador, who now takes on the Level Design and 3D department. Quite the Lead Developer hero (see "Archives"), and like Killermonkey, an example to the developers and applicants that look to enter our team environment.

For those interested, the team structure operates roughly like this;*Staff List*. The shake up has streamlined our leadership, as well as left us with a handful of vacancies to supplement our core group! You can put your hand up now, and join a professional and fun, well exposed team; Grabbing yourself a portfolio along the way!






Click for larger image




Most of the fans will remember the current map by Inverted Shadow, which has seen some miles in our releases. Since his departure, who else but Luchador to take the reigns. No more than a matter of months later he'd delivered what you see above. The progress shown displays the kind of polish that is in sync with the standards set, in maps the likes of Control. Luchador has given the map a look which is reminiscent of the movie. But still retains the base imagery of the game we all love; Really the best of both. Also, refined are the extra areas we have always looked to create in maps, to help support the recommended 16 players. The biggest thing you will notice is, like the movie, the map now takes place in daytime; Most notably with rays of light piercing through the big windows...Can't you just imagine Bond swinging across in that signature Screenshot? We could!

Luchador is also working hard on Surface, and two other maps we'll keep quiet on for now. Other news on the mapping front, we welcome back Sharpshootah to full production. We can expect Runway to be back on the agenda soon!





Yup, we are on the prowl for Modders. We seek key production roles to propel us further in our goals. Working for 6 years, our team without new blood can threaten to become stale. This is why our steady flow of quality recruits have put us in good stead to continue renewing our spirits. New recruits should seek to match our standards for the mod with every asset they present. Learning from the leadership is vital in this. We do demand a quality, so we ask that you respect our application criteria, and have most of the abilities they ask of you!

I'm looking forward to the monthly updates. It reminds me of those weekly updates that you used to have about four years ago. I always LOVED seeing the 3D imaging of all the weapons. They always looked beautiful. Congrats to all those that got the formal promotions.

The Archives is looking fantastic! And I really cannot wait to play on the Surface once again with out mission textures (the giant ERROR in the sky is pretty funny for me though).

I want to guess and say that the model is either Natalya or Xenia just because of the high demand. But I'm probably wrong and it's another incredibly cool character (or the La Fayette captain from the movie).

Very nice update overall. Great way to break the silence of news and give us something to look forward to for next month.

this is fantastic news

Archives looks great- i mean i enjoy the current Archives but this looks more furnished and polished and especially since its in the daylight looks spectacular

i think that the highest chance of the next player model is Janus- The Janus Version of Alec Trevylan mainly as i saw images of him years ago with the scar and all so yeah i think its defintely him
