My bad, it does work. Not enough patiance to wait for it to load... On the topic, who cares what engine can do what? I'm not paying $50 for an engine, I want a the damn game.

The surface_beta map linked to somewhere in the thread is pretty interesting. The textures up close don't look so good, but it's a start..

Default Re: Interesting thread on Doom 3 outdoor environments

btw.. there is a debate there ..where some "Experts" says doom3 can't do detailed large outdoors enviroments.. just like Hl2.. and they are wrong. they "detailed" doesnt depends on the engine or game limits but on the level designer. if the level designer doesnt have any skill it will be impossible for him to create a "detailed" outdoor no matter which game he use. the only valid point overthere is that Doom3 outdoors will be more limited than Hl2 by the performance of your hardware . but that is because you have in DOom3 much nicer ligting and more advanced graphics. doom3 can do detailed large outdoors enviroments in the same way Call of Duty have done it with the quake3 engine. but of course with more advanced graphics. once Call of duty2 is released in the Doom3 engine people will have a diferent idea about what Doom3 can do or not. but also QUake4 will awe everyone when they see the huge list of driveable vehicles the game will have.. wanna gues where does 4x4 vehicles will be used in quake4 ??

"I'm not paying $50 for an engine, I want a the damn game."
With the mod community like it is anymore, I'm more interested in the engine than the game.

EH?? doom3 looks great and the engine is great, but it isn't optimised for large outdoor areas. You couldn't replicate farcry graphics with a doom3 mod. The engine in its current form isn't capable of doing that sort of thing. Same thing goes the other way round. I don't see what all the fighting is about.

the same way Call of Duty have done it with the quake3 engine.
the people who made call of duty have said that the basically the only quake 3 code left in the engine is the menu system. And its still not capable of anything like the outdoor scale of the farcry engine.

lol, so you're telling me they spent the money on licensing the engine only to use the menus? riiight, and i bought my car just so i could use the rear view mirror. give me a break, that's retarded. if you were proficiant with the q3 engine, you would be able to tell just how much code stayed the same without asking the devs, and believe me, it was not "just the menu system".

i'm always willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt though, just give me links.

What in earth are you talking about? FarCry is very doable in D3, but not the other way around. FarCry is just a technologically inferior engine.
