View Full Version : day night cycle
2002-12-02, 07:54 PM
i was reading "Happy puppy's" little review of PS just now and it says:
There will be different weather patterns including lighting storms and a few small tornadoes as well. There will not be a day and night cycle, but certain parts of the planet will always be in darkness, great for a super-secret stealth mission.
whats with that? i thought there was going to be day and night.

Same here... Well journalists do seem to make stuff up just like Dave's quote at the beginning...

BAM! Right from a dev without going through any journalists changes!
BTW, this post went through a few edits so make sure to forget what I wrote before and take this as the final copy.

That happy puppy article is mad old from 05/22/2001, I didnt even know it existed. There are definatly day/night cycles as confirmed in our recent interview. As for weather, they havent said much about it as of late, probably trying to implement it still.
Here is a link to that article:
Remember, its ancient :D

yeah i thought that might be the case, ancient info and a journalist that not know all facts.

Heh, you got to admit, weather could be pretty funny sometimes. I can see myself with my combat knife, watching as 20 tanks roll over the hill, with my platoon off trying to take out another base. I run over to them, gung-ho with my knife, and they point the barrel at my head. When I hear the boom, I wonder how I'm still alive - then it turns out that one got struck by lightning, and they all exploded. Hooray!
Anyway, I think tornados and lightning could be a little stupid... but rain and snow could make things strategically interesting.

Theres gotta be some fog... theres just gotta..

Fog is a sniper's worst nightmare... At least in my opinion it is.

there should be fog for that exact reason, to stop snipers being so rampant in all areas

Im sure we will see some form of fog, if for nothing else.. to increase FPS. (not that I want to see that :eek: )

As a sniper with silent run i would LOVE fog. Heh. I think seeing the muzzle flashs and hearing the other things will mack locating them easy, or just use radar, (like snipers do in infantry for those of us who play that) to get them.
