At SIGGRAPH 2016, the Large World Terrain demo was shown off and I thought it was really cool how you guys managed to get such a vast sense of scale. I was wondering if it was possible for the demo/level to be released to the community? If possible I think it would be a great way to show the types of landscapes Lumberyard is capable of.
EDIT: Here’s a link to what I’m talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tcuv9z7bW3k
Let me check on that for you!
So I followed up on this and we are not planning to release that particular content. The reason for this (full transparency) is that demo wasn’t build to be released publicly and was not build with best practices in mind. We have a couple of new content pieces we are getting ready to roll out soon that will be much better from an end user standpoint.
Just for clarification, will these new content pieces also show off the openworld capabilities of Lumberyard?
So this particular demo will be fairly large, but no means a true “open world” like one might expect when they hear open world these days. New World (the game being built by Amazon Game Studios) is the best example of that but it’s an actual game in production. I’ll add this as a content type you guys want an example of and see if we cannot get something slated.
