    watching the E3 Stream you really couldn't get an idea of how big these things are, to me the looked like go-carts with autocannons.

    I hate it when shit like that makes it in to games. Was taking some screenshots in Skyrim the other day and there was some blurry ass rock that I couldn't manage to crop out of the shot.

    I can sort of understand why you'd prioritise time and thus quality to things like the weapons, vehicles and character models since they're gonna be up in your grill all the time, but the illusion of quality is destroyed as soon as you crouch down behind a rock and realise it's got like a 128x128 texture and 10 polys.

    It's a joke. Stop being so damn precious.

    EDIT: Oh wait I miss read your post. I'll edit.

    It's just a rock. Stop being so damn precious.

    It's a rock it doesn't need a million polys and a 2048 texture map.

    And why the hell would you be staring at a rock in either Skyrim or Planetside, there's much more pressing things to do than examine every piece of geometry.

    Did you guys even read my post?

    I'm not saying they should have the same polycount or texture resolution as say, a player model. Hell, stuff that looks like that is perfectly acceptable for distant terrain and periphery, but that rock in the screenshot is right outside a base and in the heat of the action. There will be people using that rock as cover and they will notice the shoddy quality, just as people did in the screenshot.

    I'm not gonna let a poorly textured, angular boulder stop me from enjoying the game, or any game for that matter, but I expect more from high budget, high profile productions like this.

    also he brings up a valid point why make everything else look good except the rock i mean its not like it'd consume too much time or resources??

    also its a beta/alpha/whatever so itll probs look better in the future

    It is only a rock but they could add some small effect to make it a tiny bit prettier.

    To be honest the only time I notice things like this is when I have to take cover and for about 5 seconds I think wow that is ugly but then I stop caring and my mind is directed back to the fight and you basically get all about it.

    It is just a minor thing you notice every now and then but can easily live with as it is not a major point of a your attention whilst playing.

    Don't complain about textures right now.
    Been trying out pre-release games several times, and some of those games had worse textures than on release.

    When were we supposed to get some announcement? Was it the next week?

    I think we all know what texture popping is. The problem is though that texture popping only happens on low-end PCs just as you said yourself. And if the game has texture popping(Which I doubt it has at least while ingame.). The spectator, who is most likely playing on a high-end PC since he has disabled his HUD just to take pictures(ie. in-studio testing PC) must have had quickly turned around and taken a screenshot probably in less than two seconds after turning, in order to get texture popping.

    That's not always the case, some texture popping can take a while to load without even quickly moving the camera.

    The rock just sticks out, you know? If it wouldn't be so bright but instead fit into the picture, it would be ok, I don't care about the texture resolution.

    It is like you are in an art gallery, looking at some van goghs and you see this thing that just doesn't fit into the picture. You think "WHAT THE HELL VAN GOGH", but when you look closer you see that its a squatted fly. Maybe the nightwatch squatted it. Right on the picture. Just to symbolize that he has a family to feed and doesn't get enough money for this shitty job, while some assholes takes some paint and gets recognized for his so called arts. And he walks down that corridor, always being humiliated by dead paintings of a dead man.

    For general account names I tend to use my full name. I have a common surname but an uncommon first name so I'm always a little surprised when it's taken. When this happens I usually just stick the initial of my middle name in there too and all's well and good. However, there have been a couple of times where my whole name, complete with middle name initial, have already been taken and that is really weird.

    You should try your social security number if that doesn't work.
