I will check another picture and find a better matching scale between position of gun and front, preferably straight-on shot.
The turnaround video had a front shot

Noticed that one of the screenies gives a pretty good image of the soldier-tank size ratio:

I think that's big enough.



For comparison:

Any one know what I mean when I say all these screenshots look more like when you see pictures of Warhammer figures on the table with all the little houses and that lol. It's weird they don't look real, like in game but all look like toy models.

Yes, but I have to say I really like the artistic style of PS2, even if they do have a bit of a warhammer figure feeling to them.

Using the turnaround, which has a blurry front on the gun, it's a video, after all, and the gun closer to the viewpoint, it looks like it is 12 feet wide.

The gun barrel itself has a 13+ inch outside diameter.

Silencer, maybe?

Also, just found this, havn't seen this before:



Higby said that the Magrider is pretty much the same size than other MBTs, except a tad wider.

Just been looking at these screenies again, and i noticed on the second picture up on the ledge just above - level with the second gun barrel is a blue and yellow object, it looks like i daresay a bfr (vomit), i really hope not, im hoping its something else.

Thoughts anyone???

This was actually asked from Higby in the AGN broadcast, he said it's a placeholder bunker model

Also please stop flogging the dead BFR

Re: Exclusive Vanguard Screenshots

Makes me wonder what the prowler is going to be like. That thing was a big fat turd in ps1 that sounded like a vacuum cleaner driving by. Wonder what the new one is going to be like

Maybe it's a coilgun? Then it would need the space around the barrel
Then again I think it was a conventional gun back in PS 1

Re: Exclusive Vanguard Screenshots

Not to detract from the obvious splendour of that vehicle but, before now, we really haven't seen Auraxis at all at night, and there are some interesting things to pull from these shots...

The first is the tremendous amount of detail in foliage that just wasn't possible in the previous engine; the leaves showing greater levels of realism. Even the terrain in the distance has far better depth than the orginal PlanetSide demonstrated.

The second is what I would assume to be deferred lighting from "moonshine", when the sun's light reflects off of the moon and illuminates the surrounding space. As someone who does a bit of level design, it's beautiful to see how far the game has come when light isn't just in a scene, but wraps around objects in it and generates soft shadows as parts of the tank obscure direct light.
