Landing page WIP & Composition - Focal planes

June 4, 2020

Evening People!

Hope you are all doing well and are staying safe out there in these crazy times! I'm doing alright myself been working on a couple of different things like recording some pieces of voice over for the tutorial and doing more test with them, but it's a bigger project then I initially anticipated! I'm not really helping myself either with doing all the other stuff too, speaking of which!

Website Landing page redesign

Been trying out some new stuff with the landing page, the old one wasn't really working that well and wanted to do my first iteration of a new more simplified overview of All the stuff going on on beyond extent. So now as soon as you open the site you get all the latest links for quick navigation. There is still more work to be done, especially on the mobile side of things!

This week patron vote has a majority result! A lot of people really like the work of David Holland, especially this one from Battlefield 5!

I've always been a big fan of the environments in Battlefield myself, but I haven't played these more recent maps, David was responsible in part for the level art and the overarching art lead for the project as a whole. I really love the overhead shot that shows the entire island, the combination of the water with the green parts of the island, the vista's are amazing!

So thanks so much for your contribution to these maps (it's a team effort after all) and inspiring so many people out there David Holland!
