a Mod that uses model packs and game assets won the Best Original Art catagory?
i agree that CotF looks really nice and deserves an award for its style, but these other teams worked hard to produce all their own art, i feel as though they deserved it more.
open outcast has some great graphics
don't see how you can seperate a game like this,
visuals, audio and gameplay are all linked to technical implementation
story, visuals and audio are all linked to art production
gameplay and story are linked to the directors ideas.
there is a possible bug where the pots fall off and break, you may be able to get past it by setting your graphics to low.
you should still play the original, this mod is far from complete and you'd enjoy it more if you had played the original.
if you look in the alpha files you'll notice that they're using object space normals, not tangent space, OG supports tangent space but aparently its less efficant.
