Among all the pre-release news on Driveclub, this is an unexpected one: the game is making the jump to the TV series realm, at least in Italy.
Wtf lol,that's awosome
I'm going to put this here. Dev comment: "The only way we could support weather was by building a full atmospheric simulation. Weather in most video games tends to be an afterthought, or it tends to be a fullscreen effect. Yeah, you could put a shader on the road, and you could have the road get wet and you could put raindrops on the windshield and all the rest of it, but to truly capture the thing that you’ve just described, to make sure that you can’t see the seams, you have to start with the simulation. This isn’t just an engine for DriveClub, it’s the engine for our whole lifecycle of PlayStation 4 so it had to be extensible. When we wanted to add to it, weather was the next logical step really, and as trivial as I’m making it sound, it was almost as simple as just adding precipitation to that system. If you’re simulating everything else, and then you add precipitation to it, it interacts with all the other systems. For example with the rivers in the game, if you put it on heavy rain and you let it rain constantly throughout the race, they will rise because everything interacts. Everything is a simulation. [Are you FRIGIN' kidding me?] I was playing around with Photo Mode the other day and I didn’t even know we did this until I paused it and I was looking right at one of the tyres in the rain and there’s kick-up from the wheel, but looking closer, there was pools of water in the grooves of the tyre and I thought, why have we done this, we’re insane! Surely we’re insane, but I think it was just a by-product of the simulation, it just, it blew my mind." Motorstorm PS4 is going to be incredible.
That sounds incredible! Thanks for sharing that. :^) Next they'll be telling us if the road gets too wet we're at risk of aquaplaning! o_O
Just found the interview this was from if anyone is interested: http://nzgamer.com/features...
You should submit it Gribble, it's definitely a good interview.
"For example with the rivers in the game, if you put it on heavy rain and you let it rain constantly throughout the race, they will rise because everything interacts. Everything is a simulation." "there was pools of water in the grooves of the tyre and I thought, why have we done this, we’re insane!" He is right, they are insane, I mean hell yes they are insane Evolution studios technical ability has gone up in my books along with other Sony studios "Motorstorm PS4 is going to be incredible" Hopefully they make it
I would kill to see a new Motorstom on PS4 from Evolution.
Great share Gribble. Yes, considering this is what the Evolution wizards managed to make happen with the PS3 ( http://i.minus.com/iCGJCPww... ), I can safely admit that thinking about a MotorStorm PS4 makes me wet.
I'm going kill so much time with driveclub
Wait what!? I'm starting to think this is getting a bit to much. TV series now? I'm astonished.
