Tried to introduce them in the gameplay space as much as possible, based on art review feedback.

Ponds made for nice breaks in foliage to aid in readability and reduce asset count.

Apex Legends S11 | Checkpoint POI

I had the opportunity to be the Zone Owner for the Checkpoint POI off the center of the map. This was a real fun one to work on as I had a lot of creative freedom to push the density of the jungle here and figure out how the alien infestation spreads throughout the zone. I owned all the organic terrain, the alien flower asset kit, the hard-surface modular parts making up the central platform as well as part of the top-side terrain of the platform.

Given that I was tackling this near the end of production and with memory budgets being very tight already, I had to be clever with how I approached new asset creation here. I kept new modular meshes as modular and cheap as possible, I re-skinned existing assets with new textures (e.g. ground flowers, small alien roots, etc.).

I had some help near the end from Eugene Kim and Richard Rude to help finalize the top-side terrain of the elevated platform (which was split into 3 parts). This was much appreciated help that was facilitated by my Lead, Jose Zavala, to prevent me from having to crunch to finish this zone.
