Here is some WIP renders hot from 3DS Max. I am currently working on a Night Storm version of Victory Village. Since EA never bothered to make VV a night map, I made a night conversion my self. Only this time it will have dark clouds and rain and will be my darkest night map yet.
Here's the renders. (click to enlarge)
Those are high res renders from 3DSMax 7. Though the final lightmaps will be made with 3DSMax 9
I already have the clouds and weather FX on the map. I now just need to generate the final lightmap files and insert them into the map among a few other small tweaks. It should come out quite nicely.
