They mentioned the possibility of free roaming inside the sub when they said it was currently fixed camera positions.
What does everyone think of this? Personally it's probably the number 1 thing I want out of SHIII. They've already said pipes will spew out water and stringed up ham is going to tilt with the boat but being inside the sub walking around like an FPS would really give the whole experience a lot more atmospher. It'd make you feel like you were really there, just one man of many on a ship, rushing to the torpedo control station or whatever... that'd be cool.
When the boat lists, you could be thrown aside, maybe too hard a thing to be put in... but it could be harder to walk aft than forward if the boat is in a downward dive.
That'd be cool.
How important would free roaming be to you?
I definitely wouldn't mind waiting a while longer to be able to explore the u-boat properly. And seeing as the whole interior is going to be modelled anyway I wouldn't imagine it'd be TOO large a thing to put in.
Either way, I'm sure it'll be in SH4...
