Join 3D Artist, Brandon Volpe, AKA Sword Fox as he runs through the construction of his modular stairwell. Throughout the development of Cold Comfort, we are constantly trying to streamline and optimize not only our asset count and gameplay experience, but also the work load. Utilizing modular solutions is key to this goal, allowing us to reuse our assets ad nauseam!
Defining game development rules and guidelines is essential for maintaining a large database of custom made assets, and for example, creating, say a stairwell in our example, first before designing a building saves us a lot of time and heartache. Knowing the dimensions of the said stairwell beforehand allows the level designers to plan accordingly, and properly integrate the modular assets effectively.
