A "Shellmap" is the map that plays in the background of the main menu in Command and Conquer Generals. Actions on the shellmap play in an infinite loop as long as the player remains in the game menu. The shellmaps for C&C Generals depict an endless battle, but for Vietnam Glory Obscured I decided on a tranquil scene to contrast frantic action that takes place during game play.
The shellmap for the NVA (North Vietnamese Army) depicts a villager gathering herbs near a small village and temple next to a waterfall. The village is occupied by NVA forces.
I was responsible for the sculpting, painting down textures, propping, lighting, and staging the camera.
I modeled and textured the waterfall, Jungle Trees, Banana Trees, small spikey plant, BM-21 Truck, NVA Tunnel Entrance, and NVA Pillbox.
- The UAZ Jeep and NVA Soldiers were modeled and textured by another artist on the team.
- Other assets and terrain textures are part of the Command and Conquer Generals asset library.
