The Planetside Upgrade Project was originally intended as a method of updating the MMOFPS Planetside into a game which would be competitive in the modern day. I have archived the original site and created this new one for the sequel and the concepts I make for it.
As the years have passed the game, as well as my understanding of it, has changed. As a result many of my concepts are outdated and not applicable but I have kept them here for completeness. In each section I have 'Current Concepts' which represent my desires for the game now, although plenty of the older concepts core ideas I still believe would improve the game.
I hope you enjoy the concepts, and that they prompt you to think about what the game could be.
