Black Powder | Tech Insight

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtTrAKEiWEw

As part of today's technical showcase video, we‘d like to present the making of the „Smoky Mountains“ map to you.

The scenario is set in spring 1872 in the dense woodlands of the Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee.

Located in a valley, one can spot the settlements of Dudley Lake and Goldwater, separated by one of the many smaller lakes in this region.

The mountains are honeycombed with mine shafts, wild animals roving around in the woods and
those who are brave enough cross the lake on a wild ride in one of the cable cars or rowboats.
With this short video, we would like to give you some insights on how we‘re making use of the Unreal
Engine 4 to create a realistic and natural gaming experience.


This includes:

- Working with 3D landscape materials (DirectX 11 Tessellation)
- Working with the Foliage Tool and Assets
- Setting up weather effects
- Lighting the scene
- Post-processing such as color grading
- Bringing all the visual aspects together to create a coherent atmosphere

We hope that we can provide you with a small, interesting insight into our work.

Bloody Forest | Louisiana, 1873

https://youtu.be/rtydO2NV1_A

The year is 1873. The sun has become a rare sight in the sky. The overcast and gloomy fog shows the most callous side of Fall. Jessie and his friends had lost track of their opponents for a long time. In the meantime, their hunt has led them into the deep woods of Louisiana. Fate certainly did not have anything good in store for them.
Even nature seems to have conspired against them as heavy rain falls out of the sky. A thunderstorm is brewing above, and wild animals are pestering them wherever they walk.




Today is just one of those days. Downpouring rain intensifies to an indescribable thunderstorm.
The band was forced to search for shelter right before they reached their destination. A small lumberjack settlement nearby the road to Montgomery would have to suffice.
They jungled-up and ignited a fire to gain a bit of protection from the cold, wet environment.
A pig they‘d shot earlier in the day is impaled and barbecued over the blaze of their fire.
Only hunger is worse than the cold.



Two of the men guard the camp against unpleasant surprises while the rest of the exhausted men try to get some rest.

Meanwhile, rainfall has become less intense. Distant rolling thunder and lightning that suddenly brightens the sky above, paint the scene of the dark forest. However, this doesn‘t make it any more pleasant.



Suddenly, different noises mix into the scenery, one of the men believes he hears voices in the dark, cursing and shuffling as they approach.



As tense as a man possibly can get, one of the guards stares up the path. As a thunderbolt illuminates the gloomy night, he suddenly sees a group of roughly eight figures tediously walking on the drenched path towards them.

As the group gets as close as about fifty meters, the guard rubs his eyes in pure disbelief.
They‘re the ones they were looking for! What now?
Being alone, he wouldn‘t stand a chance against the approaching might. Eventually, he hides behind a rock, with his heart in his mouth and a clump in his throat. If he’s spotted, he’s as good as dead.



Seconds become hours, as sweat drips down his forehead. They‘re so close that he can hear every word very clearly. He clutches his colt with his sweaty hands, almost breaking the stock. The next seconds will decide his fate.

„Shit weather, shit forest. Everything is shit here.“, he heard somebody say, „As soon as we reach the settlement, we will fill up our supplies and get ourselves some horses. Maybe we’ll even find a carriage!“ Another mumbled, „The inhabitants won’t be too understanding, especially since we have no intention of paying them.“ Laughter breaks out and another man says „If anybody retaliates or tries to give up trouble, we’ll do what we do best. Slice them up or hang them! There are heaps of trees here and far too few decorations!“ Laughter breaks out again. As the group distances itself someone is heard yelling „As a sweet farewell gift we’ll light their huts right under their asses!“ The laughter rages again as the group walks out of earshot.



Relieved, the guard breathes softly and the tension dissolves a little. At least he has remained undetected ... He sneaks back to the camp as quickly as he can to alarm his companions of what he’d just witnessed. The murderous plan must be prevented, no matter what!
Jessie and his companions immediately grab their weapons, as much ammunition and dynamite as they can carry, and set out on a manhunt. This time none of these unscrupulous freaks will get past. They'll all be mercilessly crushed!
In hopes of preventing a bloodbath involving innocent lives, Jessie and his companions rush with their guns cocked and loaded, trying to get to the murderous bastards before they reach the settlement.



If they can not reach the killers in time, all hell will unravel on the poor unsuspecting residents and a beastly massacre will unfold.



Jessie and his companions want to prevent that by all means!

Will they be successful? Only the next few minutes will tell. This is a matter of life and death…

About This Game

CONQUEST THE WEST

A team-based, realistic, multiplayer first-person shooter for PC set in the Wild West.

  • Brand new game mode – each match has its own story, told by the real time events that happen and by victories and defeats of both teams but be careful, you have only a single life for match.
  • Organize together with your team – distribute the weapons wisely, it’s better to be ready for every situation.
  • Weapon handling – master your favorite weapon and fight by keeping in mind its pros and cons.
  • Hardcore damage – try not to get shot, every hit will affect you in a different manner…but it’s not like a bullet in the right place can heal venereal diseases!
  • Detailed environment – every single building has detailed interiors.
  • New level of interacion with game world – It doesn’t matter if you just want to open a door or set the whole town ablaze, make the environment the biggest weapon in your hands!
  • High detailed world – thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 pushed to its finest, be ready to fight in a wide variety of seasons and atmospheric conditions. Remember, the weather can be your first ally, or your deadly enemy! (But you can still win and get a bad cold)
  • Show your skills – make your enemies aware of your sharpshooter ability by showing the most exquisite, hard earned, weapon skins you own.


Scenario Game Mode:
features a one life only, objective based game mode in a multitude of scenarios including shootouts, robberies and rescue missions. It is a dynamically changing set of scenarios that individually feature the best of classic game modes such as deathmatch, search and destroy and ambush, combining them into a standalone mode with constantly changing challenges.
Matches, with an overall time up to 30 mins, are divided into several rounds which are chronologically built upon previous conditions (victories, defeats..), and form a storyline as a whole.


Weapons:
every gun in Black Powder shoots its own bullet - implemented with real life data for mass, speed and penetration values. Depending on surface density, angle and thickness projectiles can penetrate objects... but also ricochet off the walls and slaughter your teammates!
The game takes weapons' dimensions into account so that they realistically collide with the game world. Better said, if you have a long rifle it will be very hard to fight in tight spaces, such as house interiors, where pistols will outdo any other weapon when it comes to handling. But this comes at a price: small arms typically mean that accuracy and range will also be reduced.
Also, don't forget that black powder generates plenty of smoke and sparkles, it's better not to spray bullets in tight spaces, unless you want both to cover your face in smoke and give away your position.
Last but not least, show off your hard earned prestige with high value, detailed weapons skins.

Interact with the game world:

  • Fully dynamic fire propragation, turn the tide of the match by torching strategic points, go scorched earth, burn everything! Unless it's a saloon, or a church. In that case, you've gotta use more petrol.
  • No ammo? No problem! Well, what do we have here? You're a trigger happy one, aren't you? Oh well, either take weapons and ammo from the dead bodies, they won't need it anymore, or show around that you've got a pair, grab the first object you find and introduce it to some unwilling cowboys' skulls!


Stunning worlds:
there are maps as huge as the drought in the desert or smaller than the space you are able to walk while on your feet after you went for some (more) whiskey. Maps also differ in daytime, season, and weather. Mommy says you'd better bring your mantel.


Mod and clan support:
Powered by Unreal Engine 4 we're able to provide advanced access to modding tools that will allow you to create levels, weapons, game modes or anything else you can think of!

  • Mod Support: It's always been a priority for us - we've been developing modifications ourselves for years and it gave us the needed experience for developing Black Powder!
  • Get the bells ringing, gather up some friends in your clan (you midgets don't get around in gangs anymore, don't you?) so that you can go slaughter some godless bastards and score on the ladies together. Or perhaps you'd rather group up and go slaughter some friends who grouped up to slaughter you and score on your ladies?
