In the fall of 2015 we started to prepare for the upcoming 4 team playoff and the 6 games making up the New Years Six college football games. This is an elevated look from our Saturday Night and Day/Night College Football games. We replace our logo for a ‘handshake’ logo between our heptagon for CFB and the College Football Playoff’s Parenthesis logo. We put 6 jewels around the logo for the 6 games and we embellish our environments with golden hues/gems and magic hour skies. I’m very interested in having great ‘cloud clarity’ so we eliminate any DOF and use VERY large sky maps to ensure we’re not stretching quality pixels. Our internal team recomposited every element and our look from last year til now is excessively better. New cloth sims, new everything. Except for those light streaks. Those need some serious work, but you can’t win em all.
