Here a screenie I just took from the town in Peru. It looks like I can walk forward, right? There is an open space, no walls in front of me and some places to explore...however, Lara does not move 1 inch forward :confused: Because the linear level dictates me to go the other way, I am not allowed to come here and explore the town.......

There are more examples of this where clearly you can walk to some area, jump to a higher place or go behind a gate, walk roofs etc but the game won't let you and throws you back or makes you hit an invisible wall.......sometimes also kills you while there is still a platform to stand on :rolleyes:

This needs to be changed in TR8, this goes against the most important exploration part TR stands for.

Haha, if the world editor is anything like the SourceSDK, then you're just hitting a player clip brush.

Simply put, it blocks your way. :p

It sucks, but there's not much you can do about it... unless you could noclip or something! :rolleyes:

Here now also proof that the manor does not have surroundings to explore. When I fire a grenade towards an "opening" it bounces back, meaning you can't go there even if the gate was open or you could climb to that place.....there will be an invisible wall you bump against just like the picture in my first post:

Sarcasm will not get you anywhere in life, remember that :thumbsup:

You missed the point, this game was promoted as an exploration game like the old TRs, but it is even more limited than AoD, judging by all these invisible walls you can't pass. It is ridiculous.

I found you can throw a grenade onto the roof and way behind the balcony! Standing on the fountain, you can do it, meaning it is possible for Lara to stand and walk there so now I will see if I can get there :D
You can't go there from below (invisible walls all over, so you need to drop there from way above....hmmmm)
