Overview: DUST 514 is an MMOFPS that is uniquely set and connected in real-time to the universe of the PC MMO, EVE Online. DUST 514 has players battling over planetary territory on nearly 7000 temperate planets. This talk will introduce the audience to the underlying design. Then step-by-step, it will go through some of the tools, custom tech, and methods the environment creation team used to create the modular environments, which were designed to achieve the required variation needed to visualize these planets.
