Pit Garage FMP Brief

Presentation In games is becoming more and more important, and with the increasing specifications of consoles and PCs, the integration of real time environments into menu systems and option screens becomes a possibility.

My task is to create a real time environment for presentation in a game engine. This environment will be a pit lane garage, located on the side of an international race track.

Attention to detail will be essential in creating a believable and functional environment. Things such as dirt, mess, and a used look will help this. Along with that, racing teams will only have a set amount of space allocated to them so makeshift solutions to storage and organisation will give it that extra sense of realism.

The garage should be styled on an existing pit lane area from a race track, although precision may be sacrificed for things such as artistic judgement and composition.

To go with this environment I am to make a car in accordance with the specs of current gen racing games. This car will have two variations.

• Stock – This variation will be the standard configuration of a car as if bought from the manufacturer.
• Racing Spec – This car will have been modified for racing at an International level. It will include such things as body kits, advertising vinyl and optimised interior.

Attention to detail will also be key in creating a realistic model, taking such things as, wear and tear , damage and make shift solutions to this into account.
