Project Reality is the most popular mod for Battlefield 2. Due to this huge sucess the original developpers of the mod invited modders to gather around their country to make their country’s army playable in the mod. That’s how I joined the team working to bring the french army to Projet Reality and make French Forces possible.
I originally joined as an artist to make textures, 3D and various little props for the mod but I quickly started working on the Level Design at the same time. This was my first time really digging into Refractor 2 (Battlefield 2’s engine) and learning about designing very large maps. Indeed since Project Reality was centered around realistic battles every map was huge and based on real life locations (3x3km), I had to do a lot of research.
