The current graphics really are lacking when compared to other five star titles such as Battle stations Midway/Pacific.

So if the developers would put in some 3D graphics, that would be great. I'm not asking for much, just the pacific war modeled in 3D.

If you can get that done by next patch, that would be better.

What??! Not even the same type of games. This is a top down grognard game, the graphics are wonderful for that.

No arcade game here :)

Haha but I get the sarcasm by the way.

I have to say I laughed out loud at that one. I've seen your other posts, so I think you are kidding, but that was still enough to grab my attention and cause an outward display of humor.

Don't you people read the design documents??

The conversion to 3D sprites is slated to come *after* the bridge-view simulator and the Guadalcanal FPS module.

I actually was thinking of a way to spruce things up a bit. I need to do some more research..but there may be something out there that could be interesting to explore.

Actually I'm happy with things the way they are, but there actually is something that could be interesting and may work. I've already seen it in action, but I need to see if it would be practical in this case. Its a seperate application and would reside on top on WitP

I know it sounds crazy, but you never know unless you try.

Interesting you should make this comparison.

1st, I've never heard anyone use the term 5 star when speaking of any of the Battlestation titles.

2nd, I would argue that AE makes it's name with the detail and the complexity of the code. Something that is really lacking in the Battlestation series.

Battlestation is an arcade game intended to entertain minions with little regard for actual history and more geared for those who are wowed by stunning visuals or eye candy. Frankly, AE does not lend itself to this sort of presentation as it would completely alter the presentation of the game, not to mention the intent.

Oh well, maybe better graphics can wait till WITP II: the struggle against people's unrealistic expectations.

Again, I must say 'Accurately described and nicely explained."

If you don't like it, don't play it. Battlestations a 5-star series? Yeah, and "that movie that won't be mentioned" is a good movie also.....

Jjax, shouldn't be attacked. I'd like better graphics in AE too. We talked about it. We talked about how dated they were when Stock WitP came out in 2004!!!

The fact is, what makes WitP special ain't the graphics...Any moron can draw a pretty picture...But can your pretty picture accurately, and consistently recreate history in such fidelity that you can play a 5 year long game and have it play out nearly the same way that history did?

For kicks I went and you-tubed the "BS" series. I watched in horror as the Midway attack was executed with unescorted Vals, and Shindens that took on Buffaloes on CAP and LOST! Then a flight of B-17s overflew two IJN Carriers and a Fuso Class battleship and were immolated by the vicious AAA fire of the IJN ships that steamed in seemingly random directions. All you need do, to win the game it would seem, is put the cross hairs on your target and hold the fire button down til it is vaporized then systematically move on to the next target...rinse and repeat. Seems pretty mind numbing, even if the grpahics are 5 star.

I'll take smarts over looks any day. Fortunately I didn't have to make that decision when I picked my wife...

Alright, to those who didn't get it, this was a joke thread.

Here is some advice, when someone mentions five start title and the battle station games in the same sentence, they are making a joke.

As for the people behind the art in AE, it is actually my second favorite thing about AE when compared to WITP stock. Sorry, the whole waypoint system still tops the list.

Waypoint system rocks my world! I do like I can sort everything when picking leaders, ships.. etc. That is great. Naming taskforces....oh my
