I'd like to see what players prone in the grass look like too opfor. This brings a very COD4ish aspect to the game where one could hide in high grass. Interesting.

Here you go:




I've removed about 100,000 polygons in terrain foliage. Even on full settings with forced 16x anti-aliasing, I'm getting 25-30FPS at 720p with my ancient 8600GT 256MB graphics card. This map should be quite playable. Even with onboard graphics, going inside the building, FPS just climbs sky high.


What about old Pipeline delete in incoming update?
As ELiZ said, no original maps are getting deleted. This is off-topic but Urban Assault, Hospital, Tunnel and original Pipeline are getting a few bugs fixed and a few lighting tweaks. No sounds, objects or anything critical to gameplay has been altered.

Lol well it looks like you'd be very well camouflaged to your teammates. Opfors wear black so they might be a little easier to see in the grass. But that's awesome. It adds a realistic dynamic to the game that hasn't existed in the past.

Thanks :) I think it looks better than the previous grass:


A bit more... detailed, not just a dark green color. It'll be interesting to see how people use it for cover.

That can be done but friendly fire issues would become a standard unfortunatly (all of the missions feature a pretty much standard uniform sets for US forces and opposing forces so while it can be done it's not practical). Original maps also featured more dull colors so i guess that it hasn't ever been an issue.

Messing with hue and saturation in ZoneInfo really makes areas come alive:

Grey and flat looking break room:


Bright sunlit yet dusty/hazy north pump room:



Dark and dirty yet detailed exterior:


Very dramatic, dark, red-only tunnels:


Bright orange morning sunlight outside:


Dramatic fluorescent-lit yellowish bathroom:

Pipeline doesn't have night vision....

EDIT: wow there actually is. I'm not sure why they put it in a daytime map...

:D

Every bit of it looks fun to play, are all the flammable-marked barrels in north pump explosive? That would be a wannabe terrorist dream  :style:

The bathroom looks cool, the dead guy in the shower is a bit scary xD

I'll get rid of it.

No they aren't. A while back me and Blue worked on exploding barrels but it requires coding to create effects that spawn server-side (and replicated to all clients) to make the barrels work. Also, I'm having a hard time getting ViewShaker to work... it's hidden somewhere in Pipeline, I don't want to give it away :)

Well, I think this is it. The mAAp beta is right around the corner and I can't think of much else to do on Pipeline. I thought I would go back and edit up the comparison I made almost a year ago and add this new version to it:




Obviously not a whole lot changed outside, except for the sky. I did go through and optimize things as much as I can and implemented detail scaling. Right now, on full settings at 1680x1050 FPS is above 55 pretty much everywhere. That's as good as it's going to get I think without sacrificing detail.
