Default Re: Doom 3 pre-rendered "dynamic shadows" ?

there is some problems with the flashlight as far as it sometimes shining through walls etc, but that doesn't mean it's not dynamic; it just means that they have some problems with collision detection in clients. not that this ruins the game any, it only is noticable in multiplayer.

i got to thinking... i think they could have made the game better with the inventive use of fog... imagine going through the thick fog with the flashlight only being able to see like 5ft in front of you (add pitch black and it's necessary).

if there was (or is that i haven't gotten to yet) a part in doom3 like that, i really don't think i would be able to do it, lol.

i also thought it would have been cool to make the flashlight run out of batteries... either recharge while not using it, you you would need to occasionally pick up new batteries -- in order to keep you from using it too much, haha. that's evil.
