Early screenshots!

Postby d4rklqrdnem3sys » 21 Aug 2012 20:09

Lookie what I found!
It seems that in some old version of the game, the developers did not quite implement the floating mechanism for the phoenix units, and released some half-assed screenshots!

What the hell, is it me or did the early models have prettier skins on them?

Here is one extra pic I've found.

...

Just compare the PHX Light Tank from above with a post-release screenshot here below:

...or if anyone notices some error on how my PC shows GC gameplay graphics, just tell me, cause this is really ridiculous that some old beta pictures look better than up to date ones!



























p.s. "up to date" lol (2012)

Your right they do look better! Your screenshots look normal to me, just all depends on angle and map textures.

If I remember correctly, weren't the phoenix slower but more powerful and stronger armour?

They're slow as crayven but with much weaker acceleration, normal armor, assault units weak, but all others strong. They work disturbingly differently, but can be extremely fun. Have much more specialized units, and characteristic uses of specials.

...but ugly as hell.

I really must start playing this game properly, I've forgotten how good it was. I still can't believe how good it looks even after all these years....The DC mod/expansion call it what you like, always gave me the feeling that it was never really finished properly, didn't "High Voltage" do the work on it? I was never a great fan of it as some of the ideas were never really fully developed IMHO and the Phoenix units look ugly, they could have done so much more.

Yes, but like a lot of people said at the time, it looked and felt rushed, I think Massive or whoever wanted to cash-in on the game at the time, which is a real pity as so much more could have been done with it.

For what it was/is, I really like DC. I thought the storyline was great and the units were pretty well thought out, although I will agree some things could have been changed (units didn't need to be so powerful, specs/equipment, etc.)

I have totally the same opinion as Echo, perhaps we, echo, prime, statrill and me could further the retail DC with some modding? :O :P
