No, it's not a brand new engine, but the way Bethesda worded out their 'new game engine' is that it wasn't made from scratch.

You can take a old bike and fix it up, and sell it to someone saying It's good as new now.

This is why the game is still very very very buggy, because Bethesda didn't just rewind and re-programmed their engine, they also failed to debug it because Bethesda never EVER debug their stuff properly before selling it.

This is why major conflicting bugs occurs, because their engine has bugs, that attempting to program content of the game on it, causes more bugs. You must have a near perfect game engine, before you start working on the game itself, so bugs that occur, may not be from the game engine themselves.

It's like using a scratched CD to burn your game on it, and hope that it doesn't glitch... And then sell it to people.

Now imagine if you can combine 4 of these, with one on each side, and sync them into a program.

With kinect alone, poses, emotes, and stationary moves can be used maybe...

Have anyone found a way to bypass such limits in the entities? Maybe manage how they appear when players approaches certain entities.

Having it so entities "disappear" when nobody is around it, can balance it a bit, but there will be needs for a "reserved" entity list. And the complexity gets harsher!

Larger structures usually is more Tenchu styled and has hidden pathways in lots of places for ninjas to sneak into.

For example, proning and crawling under a house is possible with the japanese house.

Not sure how are you gonna implement a climbing system so ninjas can climb on ledges.

Some of these structures have tatami mats or straw mats on the interior floors, and ninjas can use them for many sneaky purposes, and some of them might have a hole or tunnel to hide in.

Also, Tatami mats can block shurikens and arrows.

It's not about sending real civilians to take up the job of a marine, its about sending marines only. Does Natural Selection look like a RPG to you? Does it look like human civilization is at large to you?

They probably have to clone their own guys mainly because 'the human race have evolved' and they separate themselves from the older generations.

Wrong, that just makes it even more stupid...

A good mix of ideas, is:

The apc is carrying the survivor back to the safe zone, and all of a sudden a giant slab of concrete is seen flying at the front of the apc. The driver has no choice but to dodge the Concrete, but in doing so they rammed into some vehicles and lost control, and the APC nearly fell off of a half broken bridge (a hole in the middle of the bridge).

The survivors needs to get out quickly, and while doing so, the tank jumps at the APC. The survivors got off the APC in time but the driver weren't as lucky, as the APC toppled over from the tank climbing on it, causing both the tank and driver to die from the fall.

The bridge starts to collapse from the sudden collision of the tank and the APC, and the survivors moved on, unable to take the bridge back to the [city].

Also, people who buys games and don't play them often enough shouldn't really count as a gamer... Which probably cuts off like 20-40% of the gamers...

For cedar trees, the taller they are, the more branches would stick out... So make 3-4 variations of the cedar trees, each one representing a size group.

#1 = 20ft tree, normal tree branches and width.
#2 = 40ft tree, some branches sticking out in the middle.
#3 = 60ft tree, very narrow at the top, many many branches in the middle and lower base.
#4 = huge tree, lots of branches, the top covers a wide area.

Basically, with 4 variations of the trees, #2-4 can allow ninjas to jump on the branches sticking out.

Dra6o0n Mar 10 2010, 7:09pm replied:

will the animating be even more simpler if you can modify the xml ingame somehow? Like creating a new animation and pasting it over the old one temporarily, as a mod?

The normal way has you going through text, but if you organize the animation list for the default commands, and allow newbies to use it ingame, it will automatically replace the selected animation when using it...

Would this be called Overloading or Overwriting (Programmer terms)?

Example: I made a new animation, I save it so it is a file, now i want to replace a walking animation with it.
Instead of going through the longer route, there can be a simple route of a drop down box for "default" animations--- For example, the animation for walking/running, and a overload button to overload your animation over it so it forces it to use the new animation while this "mod" is in effect.

For things like creating new commands and attaching animations to it, those would be entirely new things and will end up using the old fashion way of editing it.

It would be interesting if they could come up with a way to mix your typical third person shooter with a advanced movement system, so you could have a commando wait at the top of a wall, a tank passes by, the commando jumps and attempts to hijack it.
