Hey 76mm, been a long time!
I have not d/l the new version yet but it looks like the same as the very long closed and then open beta.
People sat the graphics are worse, well because they basically appear to be...
The developer explained its because the new engine is able to zoom in and out much greater than the old... I found in the beta it was very hard to find a sweet spot for the best resolution of the graphics, where in the orignal FOG, eveything looked quite crisp regardless of the zoom...
The UI is really a taste thing but noticably absent are the mouse over of units and terrain and the info and UNIT pics etc one would get. These are abent but possibly to be added lter in a patch.
Overall, the info presented feels more like raw data vs the more stylized ( and pleasing to the eye) of the old) Almost DOS like.
This is my completely subj opinion and to be honest, if the original game was like this , I probably woouldnt think it a big deal...
Basically, on it own would anyone complain? Perhaps not but, as a comparison to the orginal, it gives the feel of being less polished...
I cant comment on the gameplay nor how closely combat is resolution is to the original in the release as I havent tried it yet.
For me, the biggest sell is the new editor and ability to do things the original could not, however, we wont be able to sample any of that until thios items are , hopefully, added...
