Topic Subject: New PCGamer Interview & Ad
posted 07-25-03 05:08 PM EDT (US)   
The September 2003 issue of PCGamer has a new interview with Rick Goodman. The interview does not contain any new information, with the exception of a quick run down on Russia and France.

You can find the interview here

The new ad is four pages long. It is similar to the previous ad in PCGamer, except it has new units. The units in this set of Ads are: Flaming Pitch (English), Turtle Boat (Korean) and Zeppelin (German).

You can find the ads here

But things I noticed in the September issue of PCGamer:
* Fog color seems to be affected by sun color.
* Rick Goodman's favorite civ is France.
* Water has a spiffy sun reflection.

Also, the skybox in Empires seems to have a better looking texture. If you can't see the screenshot, imagine a Battlefield 1942 sky. And if that is not possible, just look outside near dusk .

Here is an excerpt of what Rick said:

Quote:


In the game, as in real life, the tools of massive Russian state include Communal Living, Revolutionaries, Equipment Reisssue, Communism, Propaganda, Night Attacks and Steam Roller.

Also, he elaborates on the French. Bah, wish I could scan these heh...

The skybox in Empires is mucho cool. It's like playing during armageddon all day long! When it was first put in I spent like 10 minutes just staring at it.
