(Huh?!?! impossible making a poll anymore?!?!) :confused:
In fact, Be very careful for making a any poll here, I know.
This voting also must through sufficient discussion for making
these question items if not there is no efficient as a poll.
Especially, this forum doesn't have much voters on each poll.
But just trying to make again about LEVEL in this time.

This time Omni-Bus(?) style poll. [multiple but ONE each 1,2,3,4]


(1-1) (like TR_02, 03) Lara's home from Lv. exclusing
(1-2) (like TR_04, 05) Lara's home from Lv. including


(2-1) size(大) Lv. but ammount(小) Lv. under some 2-3 locations
(2-2) size(小) Lv. but ammount(大) Lv. under some 5-6 locations
(2-3) bigger-more is the BEST
(2-4) I don't care this bigger-more size Lv.


(3-1) Real Location named VG (real-name: Ghana, Nevada, India, Japan etc)
(3-2) Real Location named NG (artificial-name: "Shakesphear_cliff", "BahKang_temple" etc)


(4-1) Many powerful BOSS VG. in each Lv. (like TR_07)
(4-2) Many powerful BOSS NG. in each Lv. (like TR_03)大: large, 小: small, Lv.: Level, VG-AG-NG(=very, avarage, no-good)

Questions: (1-1),(1-2)

Lara's home... Is this Level?!?! What do you think about this?
Question item (1) asked about Lara's home is level including or not?
This mean ONLY tutorial style OK? or there is some reward like TRL?
You want to see Lara's home such like TR_02, 03 style(=total separating)
or style TR_05...(=Opera house back yard for tutorial) This is very
complicated to explain along technology... e.g. There are 2 kinds of
way to go to the LEVEL. (1)through Lara's home, (2)directly go to LEVEL
This is very complicated to explain.

Anyway when Lara go out of GATE, user get out of Lara's home an Polaroid...
This is very normal and typical programming until now. But user can going
directly into level at that time under new technology. How about? There is
another way... Lara can go out of GATE and there is very Large level of
Lara's home-country-town such like Parisien-Ghetto or Peru Auto-bike
scean. So this mean Lara's home has very~ very~ very~ big size.
Lara's home in TR_02, 03 was just Polaroid and user playing in there
and get out of there for going into game level. Is this possible under
the new technology? If this is possible, very interesting and Lara's home
has more and more and more very~ very~ very~ huge size serise by serise...

My first ideas are (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showpost.php?p=627269&postcount=3)... RPG is not good into whole TR but only possible in this
Lara's home inserting such like above. Lara can do conversation which having
no complicate story-line like RPG style with ppl(=Winston, Mr. Wang, and
others) at Lara's home only. And Lara go out of GATE(by Auto-bike)...
Possible touring in town... and going into 1st level at any certain place
directly there. Is it possible in new technology?!?! I don't know... :rolleyes:
For example, when Lara touring in her home town after getting out of GATE,
going into "African-Pub" so african level beginning!!! such like TR_03
globe selection. Then problem is... user who need only tutorial...
What do they do? Just simple click on "Polaroid" is possible?!?! :rolleyes:

Questions: (2-1),(2-2),(2-3),(2-4)

This is question about Level size. Simplely,
(2)tilt-to-bigger, (3)tilt-to-more, (3)bigger-more, (4)none(=I don't care)

Questions: (3-1),(3-2)

This is Location name selection problem. From time to time, this location
arguing going into "Nationalism(?)" I know. Everybody want to see their
country (name) place on TR. So my arguing (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1559405&postcount=59)was... Rather artificial name
on each level is better like "Shakesphear_cliff" or "BahKang_temple" etc.
e.g. Rather these names were better in TRL. Africa, America, Eurasi-Ausania,
Pole... etc. We just know Africa location as a very big conception title but
we don't know exactly this game place is Ghana or not. EIDOS show only
title AFRICA... or AISA... We don't know this is Japan or not during the
game. (But we can find japanese letter in game, so we can imagine easily
this is japan place.) This mean don't fixing a certain country name in the
game. You agree? Vote here. Don't agree? Vote there.

Questions: (4-1),(4-2)

About each level BOSS... Everybody need more-hard, more-bigger,
more-longer... So you want very~ very~ harder BOSS meet each levels?
How about this? Normally, there was no BOSS on each level in TR. But...
This TRL is a little bit different... Level ammount decreasing but each levels
had a powerful BOSS... Do you want this style? Maybe saying "YES" This is
contradiction!!! You want to see increasing level ammount... but also need
powerful boss on each level?!?! So you want, will be able to meet 15-20
powerful BOSS on each 15-20 levels... Finally, this is lost of "Ending-BOSS
conception" through TR serise. Normally, each part, (not level) had a BOSS
in this TR...

Main topic explained about that points.
Lara will be able to get out of the gate and...
there are Lara's home town showing RPG such like AOD...
e.g. There are African-pub in that town over the gate of Lara's home
(=manor) and if going into beginning the level... or Asian market place...
the level of Asian will be beginning... etc.

You can, as Barabora says, get outside of the gate in TR2.

Here are two screenshots of Lara out there - there isn't much to do as the area is closed off but it is still satisfying getting there :D

To get there you simply need to use the corner bug to get onto the mansion roof. From here safety drop onto the swimming pool's glass roof and from here, run and grab onto the outer hedge. Pull up and walk carefully around to the gate and simply hop down ;)

Lara live in Buckinghamshire? :scratch:
There is no need to set exactly same in reality.
This is just surround setting like drama show in TV
when we think public-opinion which need to go out of the gate.
(Many ppl need to go out over gate and doing something there.)
Why not quad-bick driving circut through the town over the gate?
We have already seen this setting in Khazah levle in TRL.
So I need to introduce these settings at Lara's home in the future.

over the mountins... :nut:
(through the normal ways.)

Ooooo :eek: I'd love to take Lara into a Morrowind/Oblivion type environment, with no boundaries....well, maybe only very farfar away boundaries. THAT would be sooooo awesome! :D

After all, everybody understand this topic's subject. hehe~ :D
Yeah~ I hope EIDOS will be able to make it in the future.
e.g. Why not adapted Peru street(=housing set) to Lara's manor?
Lara(=all users) can go out of the gate and freely tour somewhere
and sometime meeting ppl objects such like Monk of Bahkang temple...
(=not foes, not friends. but if shooting them suddenly change to foe.)
Animanls too!!! It's very possible to see not hostile all kinds of animals
such like horse, cow, dogs, pig, cats, birds... in this boundary area. :nut:

Yes I also thought there would be a little more to explore Barabora.

I always assumed that there was a path leading out to some main road! So I was a little miffed to see that the area outside of the gate was enclosed.

I am rather amused at the way Winston can be summoned to the gate - he almost passes straight through it as you can see! :D
