N-iX Game & VR Studio’s team of artists created three types of 3D assets for Victoria 3:
- Monuments (including Great Mosque of Djenne, Chichen Itza, Christ the Redeemer, Hagia Sophia, Taj Mahal, Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, Giza Necropolis, Eiffel Tower)
- Vehicles (zeppelin, steamship, sailing ship, flatbed truck, tractor)
- Locations (Dusty Wild West Town Center, Oil Derricks, Southern Plantation)
With each of the assets, our artists had to keep in mind the historical accuracy aspect. Since Victoria 3 takes place in 1836-1936, the condition and outer appearance of all the monuments had to correspond to that time period. Some of the monuments were just installed in the 19th century and many archeological sites were still largely untouched.
Each Movement and Location 3D model has a stylized tile that makes it fit seamlessly into the game’s terrain. Besides, our artists produced several LODs (level of detail) for each asset so that the game’s performance won’t drop even when a player zooms out on the world map.
