I think I might play with hdr off. I never liked hdr in far cry so i never had it on. It makes everything look kinda artifical.

I wonder you could edit .ini or whatever with HDR until it looks right...

Neitherless, AoE 3 looks impressive- I can't wait.

Some pics over there looks like crap, exactly like Empire Earth 1/2 (Trust me, it's very hard for me to say this as I'm a die-hard fan of AoE3), but I don't think that our 6800GT's/U's will have any problem to deal with this game even at its full glory.

does anyone know how destructable the buildings are?

teepees have cannonball holes? brick buildings have individual bricks? im sure i read somewhere this was the case, but havent seen this confirmed in the vids - in the trailer i can only see the ships/shops breaking up into pieces (about 5-10) not anything as prescise as toppling a tower by taking out a 'leg' or one side of a building to taste.

Yeah.... no, If they do have that then its scripted and not real time since well that would be hell of alot of processing to do in realtime.

Judging from the E3 videos buildings are destroyed into loose objects, but its not as detailed as down to brick by brick, but they do fall apart and do so as a realtime physics simulation, same with trees and soldiers use ragdoll.
Was alot of cannon blasting in the videos..
