Sorry if this has been brought up before, but there is going to be water, correct? That was a terrible limitation in the DXIW and TDS engine. Ocean Lab in DX1... one of the cooler levels, I thought.

Ah wow, thanks to DXeXodus and Kieranator, RĂ©ne pretty much has his work cut out for him...

Well, Crystal Dynamics handles water pretty well. So there are no tech limitations that would hold E. Montreal back on that. But then again, wouldn't Adam swim sort of like a ton of bricks with all these mechanical augs? Maybe there will be a weight limit of some sort on swimming.

Tentacles.

Tentacles.

Yup, exactly. ;) Octopus-style. :D

That just can't end well. Somebody will find a creative way to mod that, and then ESRB will get involved. It would be a complete mess.

Hehe, I can't wait to get my tentacles and go for an underwater jet-propelled swim/exploration.

Combined with huge,open maps, I'll just forgo taking the minisub to the ocean lab. I'll just power-swim there!

Or, lets call it "cyber-swim" :cool: :D
That would just be so cool!

Lady_Of_The_Vine

Yes indeed, I like! :cool:

I can't wait to go for a cyber-swim with my tentacles aug. :D

This would be a good opportunity for the engine to switch over to 3rd person. I'd like to have a better point of view in this situation. And a better view of the tentacles too :)

Good thread Icky...

Man, Gunther and Anna really did get the raw end of the deal didn't they. If they'd known all this crap existed they wouldnt need to feel jealous of JC

Gunther and Anna knew about it. They were just miffed that the NSF didn't hide out underwater and took it out on JC. ;)

I don't think that's an aug, either it's some sort of transgenic or... a hologram or something.

Yes, yes, yes...... OPTIONAL!:thumbsup:

Are you arguing for or against deus ex?:rasp: And to answer your question, NO as ridiculous as shooting attack bears out of a cannon (Red Alert 3)

I had to remove one image of Barrett though, but it was similar anyway.

Mods should be able to go over the image limit. :p

Hey Rene, I got a request for you...:whistle:

Yeah, must have been. I'm almost afraid of merging threads here though, after reading through that entire DX 3 Information thread. I think that thread should magically disappear and then popup again fresh and uncluttered. :whistle:

Let's just say there was much berating by the powers that be and lots of "knew he'd go and do something silly like that:rolleyes: " from most of the community who knew me...
In my defense though, the mod interface and control pannel there were a total mess! :cool:

I think the information thread is best left as it is.
We need some kind of 'general' thread for spontaneous conversation... :)

I like that idea. Sort of an Chat About DX 3 thread that doesn't have much of a point other than to keep other threads from getting derailed?

LOL.
But I think you misunderstood me (or I, you). I meant that the DX3 information thread IS already the spontaneous thread, hehe. :)

Well, yes, this is what is confusing me. :nut:
This image does look like its on some kind of projection screen in the public underground station, in the magazine scans, yeah?
So, not sure if its supposed to be just visual entertainment (or advertisement) for travellers at the station, or a superimposed image of an augmentation in the game. :scratch:

Jerion
5th Nov 2008, 10:51
LOL.
But I think you misunderstood me (or I, you). I meant that the DX3 information thread IS already the spontaneous thread, hehe. :)

Yeah, I think I misunderstood you for a second. ;)

It's more of catchall thread now rather than specifically about DX 3 information. :p

Solution? :)
Why not just rename that thread to something like "DX3 General Discussion Thread"? :cool:

Then delete our off topic convo. ;)

LOL @ you guys.

Umm, I guess there isn't a problem with one more off-topic post. :o
I just tried to edit the title of the DX3 Information thread, but it only let me do it in the subcategory title. That has changed, but the main title as seen on the board hasn't changed at all, lol.

Looks like that idea was a no-show? :D

Jerion
5th Nov 2008, 11:13
Don't Worry MrsP, I figured it out and changed the real title. ;)

Since something reasonable came out of this convo :scratch: I think it's time we try and re-focus this thread on Water. :)

So. Water. It is very wet...

So I was looking at the arm augmentation pics and the blade doesn't look like it could possibly fit in the arm. So maybe DX3 will feature a morphing metal?:scratch:

I'll continue to hope for that or something else other than tentacle augs :D

I was only suggesting how the tentacles could possibly exist. I know in another thread Dxexedus commented that they could be telescoping. The picture however suggests otherwise.

Another thing to notice is that the tentacles appear to be from the persons feet. However the bungie jumping version was said to come form the back.

Not sure if it was the only one at the time. But for the time it was released in it had the best water effects I can remember.

Can we swim without the special aug.
