Description

Gameplay Programmer and Tool Programmer for the porting to Nintendo Switch console. I worked on optimization tasks on code and helped to optimize asset graphic implementations in scenes (mostly consisted in grouping and baking meshes for reducing draw calls). Other task consist in develop small intergrated tools (to help to search large amount of objects in scene by component type and other filter options, mainly to help in light mapping tasks), studied and tested the game against the Nintendo Switch TRC guidelines and testing the game with the last changes on the Nintendo Switch hardware.

Description

This project is made as practical exercise for the "Master in Video Game Development with Unity3D & 3DS Max Official Autodesk (MPV)" of CICE Madrid (http://cice.es/curso/master-en-desarrollo-de-videojuegos-con-unity-y-3dsmax/).

A "primitive shooter" developed in one month with technical restrictions based on the topics seen in class until the project start date. The game is not optimized (its performance is not stable).

Support XBox360 Controller in all PC platforms (implementing the input map for Linux and OSX following the information found on this wiki).

The game is initially designed to be played in 5~10 minutes (It can take 20~30 minutes to complete).

Developed and full tested under:
- Intel Core i5-2500 @ 3.30GHz
- 8GB RAM
- AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series (with Crimson drivers)
- Windows 10 Pro x64

P.D.: This game will not receive new updates, bug fixes (for now) or new version with more levels.

Counter Strike Map Design

Details

Project: CS_Parcela
Genre: Multiplayer level for Counter Strike
Platform: Windows
Job description: Level designer
Technologies: Valve Hammer Editor 1.1
Download: cs_parcela.zip (1.89 MB)

Description

A small map for the classic Counter Strike (currently Counter Strike 1.6) composed with multiple usable spaces and differents routes to connect the two main areas.

This map was designed in 2001 and it's builded using an old version of Valve Hammer Editor, then known as WorldCraft Editor, included with any copy of Half-Life or expansions like Opposing Force and Blue Shift. This editor version doesn't has any advantage functionality like realtime rendering or precalculated lights, common functionalities in modern level editors or the current version of Valve Hammer Editor.

The map included waypoints for the old version 1.4 of POD-Bots, one of the various choices of the moment to get bots to play versus the CPU in Counter Strike. The video show the bots in action. In order to make the bot able to navigate the map, is necessary to set behaviour points to configure actions or define paths (the bot system includes an user friendly editor in game time for this task).

The map is available for download and it's fully compatible with Counter Strike 1.6 (the waypoint file is not included because of being incompatible with current versions of POD-Bots).

Extra

Also experimented other ideas for bigger maps than CS_Parcela, inclusive a map for the Half-Life: Oppossing Force expansion (and had the intention of creating campaing levels, for a single player mode). This gallery below show sections of these prototype maps.
