Re-Volt Nali-Pa-Haven Diary

Hello Re-Volters!

After finishing the Spa-Volt duo, I started working on my 2019 track project.

The track will be called Nali-Pa-Haven, and it will be something completly different this time.

It will be a Science-Fiction themed track, (very loosly) based on a level from the 1998 Singleplayer shooter Unreal.

You will race through an sophisticated old town, built by the Nali, a deeply spiritual race, indigenous at the Na Pali planet. The Nali where enslaved by the Skaarj, only very few Nali still live in Nali-Pa-Haven, which will be attacked by the Skaarj from time to time.

It's winter at the whole Na Pali planet at the moment, so there will be snowfall, a lot of snow on the roofs, and ice in the alleys. You will race through the impressive decorated Nali church with big and colorfull glass windows, in alleys between old medieval styled houses, a park area with a giant Nali water god statue, before reaching a small port with steam-punk styled ships. The incredible Na Pali moons shining through the cloudy night sky, so big you think you can touch them. It's a rather short track, maybe around 40 seconds laptime, but filled with a lot of athmosphere and details. I'm planning a reverse version as well.

The whole map including models, textures and sounds will be completly home-made, I only use the above mentioned inspiration for the story and names, because I like it very much. Athmosphere-wise, my goal is something between Kadish Sprint, Lunar, and Chilled to the Bone.

Here a first sketch I did on paper:

I already started modelling in Blender, but as you can see it's very early progress.

I think it will be a bigger project than Spa-Volt, and my plan is to release Nali-Pa-Haven in about 1 year, in winter 2019/2020. That's all for now - expect some updates here in this thread, now and then. :)

Ciao, Kiwi

Sounds like a nice concept. Mesh looks very cool.

Polish for: Garbage / Something of bad quality / a big swindle ?

Yeah, let's hope. Otherwise you for sure will tell me.
