Dabbling back into Max. Drone game concept/art
show user profile  Laythe
Hey guys, been trying to get back into Max just trying little projects here and there to improve my skills and gain a nice portfolio together.
I have had the idea for a game concept and i am wanting to take it into max to create a logo. My game is called Drone and is like mixing together battlefield 4 and world of tanks but set in the future.
In this future, man is no longer used on the battlefield. Everything is remote controled drones. Even the soldiers on the field are basically robots.
As with world of tanks (where you can change tracks, turret and engines etc) you can change everything on the vehicles in the game. Such as, the wings on the planes and rotors on the helis etc.
With the infantry basically being robots you can also customise them. Not only there waeapon loadout but also changing their torso and legs etc, each giving benefits and flaws.

Anyway yeh that was my basic concept haha. So i decided to try and design a logo for this game.
Here is my concept so far:

As you can see i want to make the text out of different robotic/futuristic features.
I am not yet sure if i will go down the road of realism or a kind of borderlands colourful feel.

thanks for reading through all this.

So you're making a MechWarrior game, with customisable robots... and you're working on the logo... I'd be concentrating on the mechanics, since having customisable robots will result in a biased game... unless it's tweaked to hell.

Heh Yeh does sound a lot like mechwarrior. Nah I am not making the actual game it's just a concept I came up for now it's just a logo and maybe in the future some models but we will see. Off on two weeks holiday tomorrow so will update this once I get back.

the ides has potential.

I'm a warhammer 40K player, check out the Tau drones. They are pretty sweet. Sheild drones, Pulse accellerator, Grav-inhibitors, recons drones, sniper drones, tech drones, missile drones, stealth drones, gun drones, markerlight drones,

they're fun to use and offer interesting dynamics. The correct combination and strategy of each can make or break a match

edit: if you want some good ideas for tech shapes, go to your nearest bricabrac store (the types that sell old junk) and pay $5 for an old camcorder. the mechanical components in there can have some beautiful shapes. I use them quite often for prop making or to get ideas for Sci-Fi artwork.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

Hi, i`m an extremely wealthy investor with an interest in funding computer game startups. Your idea has real merit and now that you`ve exposed it publicly i`m going to walk away with it and turn it into `my idea` and make a lot of money..

It`s called `prior disclosure` and you should read up about it now that your idea has been stolen by me :)
