[ Company -> Images ] - More info on Community: Inside the Vault

Producer Jeff Gardiner has gone Inside the Vault today. Let's learn more about him:

What’s your job at Bethesda?
I’m a Producer. AKA, the ‘cattle prod,’ the ‘snake-oil salesman,’ or ‘smiley-glad-hand.’ On Fallout 3, I’m in charge of keeping the designers busy. I also have a heavy background in design from previous projects, so I coordinate and help design various game systems; combat and VATS in particular, among other things. It’s a great job. Being able to shoot at things in a videogame all day, and then getting paid, isn’t something I take for granted.

...

What is the best part about working as a producer? The worst part?
The best part is I get to set and achieve my own personal goals. I get the privilege of being able to help, in any way I can, on Fallout 3, and other great games. Day to day my job responsibilities change, so I’m never bored. Today I got to play with various types of weapons and make small tweaks to damage, gun spread, field of view, etc. A month ago I was helping oversee the production of some of our most important main quest events (sorry, no spoilers.) Tomorrow I’ll probably be shuffling around a schedule trying to get this game finished someday. I’m lucky I get to work with the designers, as that where my true love lies! There really is very little downside. Sometimes I’d rather not spend so much time using MS Project, but that’s about it. Game development is very much a dream job if you find the right company.

Read the rest here.

Hi! I get paid to do nothing but goof off and boss people around.

gun spread


Gun spread? I thought they're gonna use a skill system. When a skill system is utilized, there should be no SPREAD. Each and every round fired must be calculated separately is respect to the skillpoints etc.

Unless they're making a dumb FPS crapgame. Oh well... never mind.

Calculated to if you missed or hit the enemy. Then the surrounding enemies might get hit. Spread in F3 will be just another number after a "=" in some .txt hidden in a .dat. All it'll do is make you miss every 3rd shot in autofire when you kill hordes of enemies in a big shiny blurry post apocalyptic first person Diablo.
