Re: So, there's weather. What about VIOLENT weather?


I am a fan of weather systems, but i don't feel that they should have any effect on game-play beyond limiting your vision. When you start add "random" elements like lightning strikes, gale force winds, or other effects. Players tend to get really angry because its unpredictable.

While i like the idea of weather effecting gameplay safety and vehicle handling, it is probably better that it only effect vision. Though there could still be lightning in the sky and thunder. Nothing is more awesome than having a firefight in a thunderstorm.

I also agree that weather should NOT be toggleable. It should be forced on for all players, if you let players turn it off. No-one will use it simply because it effects their vision, like in Planetside.
