The ROBLOX team has sent word that a new FPS-style game has been developed for players to try out. Called Base Wars, the dev team has written a great article about the process of taking the game from level design all the way to completion.
Base Wars’ level design was a front-loaded process, so the ROBLOX Content Team focused its initial efforts on implementing the capture-point mechanic through careful layout planning. What started as whiteboard drawings became a balanced, successful map through about 10 iterations – spanning everything from a sketch, to a single-texture layout used to determine the scale, to a version with identifiable bases and paths, to a final build with all the shortcuts, elevation changes and cover objects in place.
