it's new but reminiscent of the old PS1 one. I like it.
So my BF just miiighhttt draw some furry porn of PS2 to get a beta key and send it on twitter, and hopefully not get banned
Wish him luck, godspeed
Hopefully they don't have the same trees. Lost more loyal Republic troops to those bark-covered bastards than enemy troops.
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.
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.
comedy gold m8 u should be a stand up comedian
notice how he said that he wasnt gonna let a poorly textured rock stop him from playing??
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.
Hey guys is the beta out yet? No? Lets complain about rocks!
Good god what have I done.
I just made a little joking reference to ps1. Is facepunch on its period this week?
What sick man steals all of my names? Tried making an account, all of the names that I use were taken, including Cam00, who would even want to impersonate me?
Alright, had to settle for the good old BigDiggaNicks.
Maybe it's just not a very imaginative name?
i keep the dog
Why can't we just be friends. :unsmith:
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.
This is first time my name was taken as well. "The Scanner Darkly" that is, it's what I use for everything but FP and Windows Live, which I only use on gta anyway.
I use this name for everything and I am yet to come across a place it has already been taken. That is partly why I like it so much.
They closed their ports before anyone could get there
Did the hype die all of a sudden? We're off the first page.
Well, I mean, there hasnt been anything to say, really. Except for inane faction babbling, but I don't think anyone cares about that.
