Progressing Towards 2018 - Part 5 : Stadium Refresh and Final Development.

Hi everyone.

As we move into April it's time to start the process of adding into the game the platform specific features that are mandatory for shipping on the XBox One and PS4. These are the Achievement and Trophy collection features, as well as ensuring that the various platform store information is in place and the zillion other items required to start the certification process - which should begin in May.

Over the past couple of weeks Canuck Play as been posting to Twitter and Facebook various images of the refreshed stadiums for Maximum Football 2018, this includes a brand new addition - Halifax Mariner Stadium.

As part of the stadium refresh, in most cases the amount of detail in the stadium building itself has been increased more than 10 times. Spectator seating sections in 2017 were flat panels, in 2018 each row is its own stepped layer. As well, in 2018, each seat is its own mesh. There are between 25,000 and 55,000 individual seats (and the fan sitting in that seat) depending on the stadium.

In 2017 the spectators themselves were flat, camera facing billboards displaying an animation strip. In 2018 spectators are individual animated 3D meshes.

A new lighting system as well as improved shaders put in place for 2018 also enhances the play environments.

Below is a side by side (or rather a top by bottom) comparison of the stadiums environments from 2017 to 2018, with a few extra images thrown in.
