the new water looks absolutely amazing. i didnt know it could get that realistic looking. Is there any idea what kind of platform will be able to run the water smoothly? im planning on buying a new computer toward the end of this year when the big titles start to come out(half-life 2, doom 3, stalker, splinter cell 3).

It looks alot beter than Far Cry water. Is there any one elce who dosen't think this game realy has all that great graphis? I mean all it has going is Animated water (finily) but it's not realistic, and well designed maps.

Well, the water does look nice, but to make the screenshots look good, I'm sure it is in "perfect" mode. And in missions and online, when things get busy, we will rarely be playing on Perfect settings, even with new computers. I would like to see screenshots in medium settings to see how the game will look as most people will actually play it.

Water will eat the fps for sure, just like in Lock On. No biggie.

Don't think a top-notch system as of today will do that bad though...not maxed out I mean. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Upgrade in Q3 2005 when the addon is released.

Then start worrying about BoB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

When Oleg releases The Battle of Britain in 2005 then you can buy a rig that may be able to run Pacific Fighters in full detail mode.

This is how these things work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I doubt it will be any worse than running the gulf of finland map on medium detail.
