They de-rez and re-rez inside the vehicle, obviously. Like they did when pulling vehicles from a pad in PS1. A short timer bar and a snazzy little de-rez animation would go a long ways towards aiding immersion.

(It would also prevent people from insta-bailing to cheat their enemies of XP, or instaswapping from one gun position to another to insta-murder whatever kind of targets they saw. It would vastly improve gameplay across the board, IMHO -- and wouldn't chew up lots of development man-hours).

One key take away from this interview is the insight into how they flesh out complaints or the wishes of the customer feedback on the game. Considering what is said and what is at the root of the issue rather than directly changing the game as specificaly requested.

I think so man. What they are looking for are vote-ups to fastpath the game to success. You can see how some things later in the sched were voted up higher and I hope they enact on them as such.

You didn't get to weather it sounded like. Was hoping Higby would talk about that.

But it makes me wonder why the art team decided to go in this direction in the first place, not future proofing at least. It's just one of those immersion factors that is sadly missing.

That was answered ages ago: Because they didnt think it was a big deal.

They just didnt expect us to be mad about it.

Well get on with it?

Good to see that Higby wants to move up resource revamp priority. I guess I understand why it would be difficult to do sooner...but I'm not happy about it taking that long.

Interesting that he said amp stations and tech plant tunnels will be defending empire only. That should be fun.

Thank you for clarifying that... although I hope the team reconsiders doing them in the future.

Missed this post somehow. If/when you do redo vehicles can you please break them into components. If you have the windows animate for instance allow them to be destroyed and other parts. I was really hoping to see something like this in PS2 to make aiming certain weapons in certain places important. Not just aircraft, like the engines and windows, but a tank with sidegrades on the outside or weakpoints that can be individually targetted. Same for say a sunderer's ams sidegrade. I digress as this was all mentioned years ago.

Re: UES Interview with Matt Higby


Well, there's still a few problems in the current game (meta-game, balance, render distances), that I'd say they'd better fix those first, before they start cooking up new ideas.

The game only just got here. It's and awesome game as it is, but far from polished and free of bugs and other "growing pains".

I'd be happy to see it turned into a finished product, before even more half-done content is being added.
