Hey Squaddies!
We know Stack-Up.org needs no introduction among Squaddies -- you all absolutely crushed it during Veterans Day -- but did you know about their Air Assaults program?


What could be more awesome than Air Assaults? The opportunity to be part of one, of course! Stack-Up and Squad are back together to bring two veterans from our amazing community into the game. Like, really, really into the game.
 
We're honored to be able to offer the opportunity for two lucky folks to join us for a motion capture session. Stack-Up is going to transport a couple of lucky veterans out to Vancouver this March for the full Tron treatment. If you remember our last motion capture session, you know there's no better place than Animatrik and we're pleased to be going back.
 
How can you get involved? Our amazing partners, who have made our work with Stack-Up such a success, will be providing the application until February 4thduring their streams, directly to the community that makes it all possible. You can find them here:

So you guys need to do more motion capture for the new animation system? What kind of actions will you be recording?

One thing that's been tossed around is idle animations. There's also stuff going into later patches that might require an animation or two. We'll definitely find plenty of ways to get folks in the game.

this means even longer wait for v10? ahhhhhhh lol

Naaah! This is independent of v10. And like I said above, there's more coming to Squad than v10. =)

Passengers sitting in rear of Transportation truck could benefit from this.

Hey gang!

 

The entry form should be closed now and Stack-Up is reviewing the entries. Thank you so much for your interest and, more importantly, your service and dedication. We look forward to getting a couple of you up to the office and in game. Can't wait to meet you!

I'm a vet who attended air assault in 2017 fort Benning. Some animations I could def see them doing are: rappelling off helicopters maybe even fast roping off Chinooks (which involves attaching yourself to the rope, like mountain climbing), air assault mostly deals with rigging supplies for flight, so my bet is hooking up chains for logistics choppers, boarding and disembarking helicopters, maybe even a door Gunner, possibly medevac wounded people.
