So about the "upgraded fov system". Do you guys think this means they're actually doing it right this time and having the fov change vertically and horizontally instead of just horizontally like it is in BC2? I hope so.

I wasn't sure at first but I just found out that merging any 2 (or more) threads results in the posts being displayed chronologically. Basically, your original post will be bumped down which defeats the purpose of having an "Official" thread.

They are going to have prone but no "jump to prone", this is fine just so long as I can still dive out into the ground or hiding spot to avoid cover fire. Don't want to see stats or ranks messing with team play, don't want to see expensive server rentals that are not policed by EA/DICE - must have a official Rules of Engagement or Terms of Service for all server renters/Admins to follow PERIOD!!!!

Want a destructable environment so if I shot at a pile of sand bags with a tank or RPG and your behind it..you WILL DIE!! Would love to see CTF but don't believe that will happen either, at least there is co-op coming. And for the love of GOD... I sure hope EA/DICE comes out with a way to manage servers and will allow anyone to throw up a ranked server not just certain providers. Would love to be able to rent a full dedicated box to do multiple things on and have full FTP access but at the same time the game be ranked and reporting back to a central server - this can be maintained by the TOS as mentioned above.

ANy modern game should use Euphoria for character animations. at least if you're using something else, don't brag about it.


I am no expert, but, while Euphoria looks great in GTA and RDR, I am not so sure it would be worth while implementing into a multiplayer FPS game. It's main advantage seems to be with ragdoll physics, and having your character always stumbling from falling or being hit would get annoying in a shooter, let alone being tricky to keep the first person perspective realistic. From the sounds of it, Dice has chosen an animation system much more suited to BF.

Actually euphoria has to do with animation and how they move, not so much ragdoll. it about natural motion and reaction. and just like with head bob, because your character visually does something doesn't mean the player camera will. even if realistically it should.

As long as ANT has smooth realistic movements and reactions, and always keep the feet on the ground it won't be a terrible loss though. But if we still get the silly element of when your character steps out on an edge, he stands on invisible floor until he "pops" down to the next step, instead of smoothly, placing the feet at the correct height and stepping down naturally no matter what the height difference, small ledge, or big step, like Euphoria does. if it can't do that, I'll be disappointed.

I remember watching tech demos of the Euphoria animation engine for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. It was pretty impressive. The animations and movements were so realistic, it almost felt like the AI actually had a mind of its own. As for the animation engine that'll be used in Battlefield 3, I'll be happy as long as it provides smooth and realistic animations.

Euphoria

ANT



Also, Crysis 2 uses ANT, and that looks pretty damn good.
