Back Garden Design Work In Progress

The images below show the back gardens of the East India House and how they came to be. This is a stealth section used in The Order: 1886. I blocked this out from scratch, and as the stealth design evolved so did the design for this space. I later switched from blockout design to using art instances in order to fine tune the design. This was then used as a base for the environment artist to flesh out the details. This space was designed in descending plateaus to give the player a clear overview of the patrolling guards in this space. The last step was to add player collision and cover nodes, which was quite the task considering the organic shape and size.

Design Iterations

As with any design, it takes quite a few iterations to reach the result most suited for its purpose. Below you can see the steps from start to final design of a few areas I worked on in The Order: 1886.

Facade Art Blockout

Before an Environment Artist was assigned to this level I created some initial art blockouts for the East India House facade. These blockouts were later used by the artist to create the entire East India House art tileset that is used in The Order: 1886.

Full East India House Blockout

I found two images from my work on The Order: 1886 that show the entire East Indie House level blockout in two different stages of development. You can clearly see the intro street section on the left side of the image, which then progresses the player onto the rooftops of Mayfair, down to the gardens you zipline into and the path off the side of the building all the way to the front entrance and into the front lobby.
