Washington DLC: Prefab building in ATS
One of the challenging tasks with every new map expansion is to come up with new industry depots. Since these are the cornerstone of the in-game economy with direct impact on gameplay overall, their development has come a long way from the same-sized generic prefabs, through landmark-like quality of huge industry areas to modular depots - which you could see for the first time in our recent map expansions of Oregon and Beyond the Baltic Sea.
In Washington, we took another step with modular prefabs. Each dock consists of the foundation stone of our own depot and around it, we gradually build the whole complex, making the process quick and efficient. This also makes each depot unique, as every map designer has a different approach.
Today's batch of screenshots shows depots in general, while some of the future blog posts will go more in depth of the industries found in the state of Washington.
