TV has a 32 player limit according to this link. Unreal tech must have wank netcode:( I'm just waiting for the Gearbox style interview where they claim it was a design decision made to enhance gameplay.

31. If only Oct 30, 2003, 04:39 Mr Gar
 
ďIt really is a shame about this game though. I wish it would have been better. I just hope it doesn't discourage other devs from trying something similar.Ē

I agree completely. MMO shooters done properly could be amazing. Unfortunately the only difference between Planetside and non MMO shooters is the potential for huge battles.

They completely ignored any strategic element, such as resources to fight over or a proper command structure to give the whole thing purpose. At the moment it just feels like a sport. You log on to your crappy empty sanctuary and then proceed to fight over identical looking bases for no good reason then log off. When you log back on nothing youíve done has made any difference.

You should be able to build outposts research new technology etc. A round based game such as Natural Selection has more depth then this crap Sony has produced. Maybe current technology just isnít up to creative an exciting enough MMO shooter world yet.


MMO NS Imagine!:)

25. Re: sweet Oct 29, 2003, 04:57 Mr Gar
 
OK I take it back Iím going to reinstall, those maps look very well done. Betrayal, TechDream, Ougaldwin and Hathor have a lovely UT feel about them.

And RE No 5 ďToo bad they didn't make the bonus pack for the original UT which is 10x more fun then the UT2K3 POSĒ

I canít believe nobodyís made a UT classic mod for UT2003 yet:(

17. Re: Ford Oct 28, 2003, 04:40 Mr Gar
 
The handling in Porsche unleashed meant at least some skill was needed. Also NFS HP2 was completely unmodable. The best you could do was to re-skin the maps. Probably so they could release an expansion but the game sucked too much for them to bother.

Why not include more options so arcade handling, and damage modelling can toggled on and off.

Those developers have a clue so wouldnít go for an exclusive with Wankplanet.

Nothing against paying for guaranteed bandwidth and no queues (apart from when I subscribed for a month I still got shitty download speeds), but exclusive betas and demos do nothing but piss off the potential fan base and insure less people get to play them.

I hope people and vehicles still shatter when they take a good beating, and donít just flop around excessively. Also that crappy jetpack smoke doesnít look as good as the smoke trails from mortars and vehicles in Tribes 2. Player limit needs increasing to 64 from 32. IS Unreal netcode not up to it?

Oh well itís early days Iím sure they can still give us something ‹ber by the end of next year.

20. More of the same. Oct 23, 2003, 06:06 Mr Gar
 
In PCZONE UK they had an interview with Carmack where they talked about the only innovation in the game being the graphics.

Carmack said he didnít understand why other developers insisted on continually trying to innovate gameplay. He used the analogy of a basket ball game, where the game play stays the same and the levels you play in are gradually improved to look more realistic.

So this game really will play like an old skool corridor shooter even if it looks next gen.

Innovation in gameplay beats shinny graphics any day so Iíll give this a miss I think.

"No, it's just to make the Euros feel better"

True but it doesnít make me feel better and I've lost respect for the developers for bothering to make up such shit.

It probably just means the European release will come ready patched to version 1.1. Well worth the wait:( Twats.
