Beautiful video.

I notice there's a lot of black shading and shadows. Isn't this quite unrealistic considering the lighting conditions? Not to mention a lot of detail and interest is lost.

And go Stegasaurus!

Perhaps the best thing to do is use some reference images. Check out some 3D art set at night time (say, on CGSociety) and see how they light the scene.

Normal maps/specular highlights are essential to bring out more detail, reflecting the moon at whot-not. Dark shadows and unlit areas shouldn't be too much of a problem if HDR is used correctly. ;) Keep up the good work.

Looks good and sounds good, particularly the amount of detail.

I think the only thing is that for a night shot there's too much light, especially ambient light.

ausbushman Mar 16 2010, 8:05am says:

Looking good!

The TAR does like a bit funny in an odd way, but if that's his character then that works fine.

Will he say or do funny or odd things? (Maybe he fumbles with a grenade from time to time, or suffers a malfunctions, pauses and forgets what he's doing, or accidentally fires at friendlies, or wants to be free and fight with the humans...). Comic relief can work in if done properly. It'd be interesting to see what kind of character this guy is!

Hammer isn't really designed to create detailed models, but rather lay out the primitive level and then detail by importing models from 3ds Max, etc. So sounds like CE2 is suiting your development process better, and that's an important thing to consider.

Hahaha, well fair enough. However, the Chicago Manual of Style doesn't apply to the whole world.

Also, in this case because "rock paper scissors" is a well-known phrase, it is likely unambiguous to the audience that "paper" and "scissors" are individual items. Therefore it would be safe to omit the last comma, surely :)

ausbushman Jan 3 2010, 12:57am says:

"Rock. Paper or Scissors?"

Really, what this is asking is either "paper or scissors?", as due to the mistake of using a full stop instead of a comma, the option "rock" is not part of the question as intended.

Seeing as you're polling a community of [tens, hundreds of?] thousands, it may be worth testing polls before posting them to make sure they a) make sense to people other than the person writing it and b) don't contain spelling and grammatical errors.

That said, paper ftw. Though having said that, I just realised that I should have voted scissors as, if the proposing question is anything to go by, the rock option shouldn't exist and therefore nothing would be able to destroy the scissors. Damnit.
