(which i understand because we drained all our energy talking about the supposed Demo release... now we cbf to write anything anymore)
So i created this thread to Discuss on those new screenshots of Connor climbing on the trees and mountains in the snow including some wildlife .http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/522719_383884054985568_207012852672690_1136119_160 5981471_n.jpghttp://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/564878_383885128318794_207012852672690_1136126_145 2718959_n.jpghttp://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/564977_383886708318636_207012852672690_1136140_180 6844194_n.jpghttp://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/531284_383886794985294_207012852672690_1136141_143 9778226_n.jpghttp://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/560394_383884671652173_207012852672690_1136124_612 595161_n.jpghttp://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/522710_383884991652141_207012852672690_1136125_121 8866288_n.jpg

Hate to break It to you, but these have been discussed.

There wasn't really a Thread devoted specifically to discuss them though, so you might get away with It.

Atleast it gives you something to talk about because the threads have been Dead lately

Yeah, we've talked about em a bit. When they first released. I, for one, love them. They are beautiful and the 3rd one down impresses me the most. Looks like somebody walked outside and took a pic. Snow looks great, and the trees are gettin there. Need a smidge more touching up around the edges and they'll be golden.

What's the brown stuff at the top near the centre of the last picture?

It looks like a trail. That was my guess, anyway.

euhm so hunting is basically like an assassination contract for animals?
I think it's ridiculous that you'll be able to get so close to a deer without it running of, sure it can't see Connor but let's just hope it requires an insane amount of stealth and the moment it sees you it runs 4x as fast as you do and gets the **** out of your sight

Why Is It ridiculous?. How do you think people used to hunt back In the day?!

GLHS
04-16-2012, 05:45 PM
Yeah, it's the same way that Native Americans have been hunting for hundreds of years. Stealth and knowledge of the environment. They perfected it. I don't see the problem.

Eh, I don't see the problem. A bow is more effective but the people didn't always have bows and arrows

has anyone noticed that on ALL the trees, theres the little cutoff branch stubs. the new environment (tree) traversal system must be really interconnected.

Of course animals will be able to run, Deers are more vulnerable, so they will most likely run away from you, But bears and wolves are more fierce and they definitely WILL attack you if you get in their way. The animals in the game are constructed to have their own lives in the forest, they are also constructed to react to your presence which varies which each animal .

For the first picture, the snow is inconsistent between the branch and the trunk of the tree.

The second screenshot has some problems with the snow trails as well.

I also find it hard to believe that on the central tree in the sixth picture, the branch would jut out from the trunk and be practically straight. It sort of stands out since the trunk is all unkempt and has the small shoots of branch sticking out, making it look scraggly, and then the large branch that would most likely be a viewpoint is so neat and half of its height.

Indeed and they look awful. Exactly the opposite of how non-linear every previews said the ttrees looked. Am I missing something? These and all of the outstretched perfectly horizonatal branches looks ****ing ******ed. Ugh. I swear I am begining to really doubt the feeling of authenticity from this game-no doubt it will be fun-just gonna have to deal with the disappointment of unrealism.

See the game in action first and then judge it... Your already saying we are going to have to deal with unrealism without even seeing the game in motion.....

Obviously. That's all I have to base my opinion off of atm and I freely admit it could change; though, every picture I have seen of the trees seems to contain these issues.

I agree with all your points. The branch snow does look stupid but then i put it in perspective. WE are never going to zoom in that far to the character so we wont notice it that much. As for the 6th picture, you are right! THAT is absolutely ridiculous, it actually looks stupid!

That's aliasing for you.

Are you implying that Assassin's Creed was realistic before the introduction of 'convenient' tree branches?

I'm sorry, what? Do you have eyes? Look at those trees more carefully. There are plenty of branches to be found that are not at all "perfectly horizontal". This looks almost exactly like a real forest. I really don't see where you're getting your nonsensical criticism from. Also, swearing is against forum rules.

Lol "do you have eyes?" Sometimes your sarcasm is too much to handle.

But seriously, tree branches are supposed to be all random and jutting everywhere. That's sorta the point the devs are trying to make. Not every tree is made so it looks climbable and like it was made for Connor. They're meant to look random and real. Hence the new reaction system that's implemented for Connor to react realistically to the environment around him.

You have to admit, picture 6 has the most ridiculous branch ever. Its like someone just super glued it onto the tree. It doesn't even have the same textures as the tree trunk

That's bs. Tree branches don't grow in random directions. They grow towards the sunlight, which generally means they grow to the sides and up at a slight angle, depending on the species.

:p You know what I mean. I just meant that there's no particular way a single tree should look, and they're like any other living thing. No 2 are/look exactly the same. Each tree is different and has different branches in different places that are different sizes, etc.

there's a lighthouse in the background of picture 6

@pacmante your right, it looks like a dead end as well, so i dont even see why you'd need a branch there in the first place
