Interesting. I'm glad they went back to continents.

// I still can't figure out what I'm looking at in the second picture. Some bases surrounded by water? Looks promising.

Re: just found these two pics on Tony Park`s blog


EDIT:

I went to the actual site, downloaded the large picture, THEN flattened 'er out with GIMP. Click on the 'nail, then click again to get a full-blown pic.

Looks like different base icons, one looks like a chemical tank with a hose going to and from it OR a battery with a cord and plug coming from it, one looks like multiple smokestacks on a factory, another looks like the top view of a tank or a stylized castle, a la a rook in chess.
The central base zigzag symbol reminds me of the electrical engineering symbol for an electrical resistor.
And, like someone noted later on down in this thread, a warpgate in the water! LOL I didn't even notice until I read down further that the round things were warpgates!


4km maps. How big are the ones we have now?
Will there be a gigantic megamap, but where we only see/map 4km at a time, a moving display, as it were?
Water, water everywhere, but is there a drop to drink/boat on/swim/submarine under?
Biospheres? How are biospheres significant, as opposed to just saying "terrain" or "environment"?
Planetside2 Massive Warfare seems to be the name. Sony has this domain name www.planetside2.com and it just redirects back to a Sony page.
Notably, planetside3 domain does not go anywhere.

In case others didn't notice. Here's the large full versions:


Right click view image on the second image and zoom in with ctrl+ and you'll see factory images. (Tech plants?) There's also things that look like power plants. Meh might be just placeholders.

The possible waterfall sounds nice. I bet we can extrapolate the whole game from this one image.
Enhance!

If that is accurate...

Biospheres would probably mean putting desert, hilly, cyssor and forest into the same map. (seems like it on that map too)

4km x 4km, isn't that... the largest map size of BF2? Although most of its maps were more like 1km x 1km of playable are 2 x 2 on the bigger tank/air maps.

I would amend his slide with "Pretty big" instead of 'Massive'. :P

Oh yeah, and is it me or does that look like some one drew it on a napkin in 5 minuets scanned it and photoshoped some crap on it? That bottom base looks like a cup of coffee also...

Re: just found these two pics on Tony Park`s blog


The text is even more interesting.

Met with the SOE partners in the United States; very excited because they told me new developments for Planetside Next: the content of the game is good, andthey feel the original name no longer suitable. They officially changed its name to Planetside2. Bring you more news later.

Officially named PlanetSide 2


Uh oh... Didn't someone about PlanetSide from SOE says the name with a "2" on the end -- PlanetSide 2 -- wouldn't work because of their EverQuest 2?

Here's the important Google Translate quote of Tony Park on his blog (http://translate.google.co.uk/transl...m/the9tonypark):

I do not like it.


I'd rather they change the name of the old one or just put it in the "PlanetSide refuse" bin and keep the original "PlanetSide" for the new PlanetSide. It's their stuff after all. What harm could it do? Who'd fret over the confusion of both the better of the older game... ?

Re: just found these two pics on Tony Park`s blog


4km by 4km seem a little small - are they not the same size of the mini conts that replaced Oshur?

I would much rather have something on Cysors scale

Oh happy birthday Planetside at least you fans still love you....

Re: just found these two pics on Tony Park`s blog


Thanks for the post looks interesting, map size brings a question to mind in regards to how massive are they aiming for in terms of players on the map.

Re: just found these two pics on Tony Park`s blog


Well thats 2.5 miles, honestly thats prob what we have now and its many times bigger than the BF maps. You have to understand that vehicles in PS move slow as hell. Their speed is in KPH which may be misleading if you are used to seeing MPH. A prowler for example moves at 33mph top speed. That means 5mins at full speed with no bumps or turns in a straight line. Realistically, 8 mins side to side at full speed in a relatively straight path. That seems about right for anything short of Ishunder which is quite massive but also has alot of empty space. (not a bad thing tho)

Also, keep in mind that if a map goes from 1 km across to 2, its 4x bigger, so the BF maps which are maybe 1km, compared to 4km...at minimum 16x bigger area than those maps.

Distinct biospheres just means the same as old ps where each cont had its own biosphere or climate. Aka, snowy conts, desert conts, jungle, temperate, etc.

Re: just found these two pics on Tony Park`s blog


Im hoping thats a zoomed in view of a map. I hope we dont get some invisible border crap like in bf/cod. I'm assumin its normal conts, but who knows. Kills the immersion when its just pieces of some area you cant even get to.

So little info, all this speculation is gonna drive us nutz. =D Seriously hope E3 has some info.
