Hey imagine a nighttime level? That would be sooooo cool with stars in the sky, the moonlight, and some cool lighting outside from say fireflies or something?

I hope Media Molecule is reading these ideas! Do it MM!

yea day/night would be cool. Maybe the game would have an ingame clock so that if your playing a level and it got dark you need to find a torch or something, that will be awsome

As far as the level switching from day to night based on the real time, I think it would be better as an option that can be turned off, because there are some levels where it would ruin the theme.

thats a good idea, maybe theres all three options:night,day, or current......but it wont work you know why?because people will be playing online all over the world and one person during the day can be playing with one person during the night, you get what im sayin?

As long as it's not like every minute of the game represents an hour in real time or something like that. I really can't see many levels where people would want the light to change automatically. I think they should have every level start dark and then you can add your own lighting like a sun or whatever, and that way you can have night areas and day areas in the same level and things like that.

i think we are just over thinking, like they said, it will be a simple and fun game. itll probably be just a day and night you choose

It'd be cool to see how the shadows move, like when moving around, seeing hwo well the physics work with the shadows =)

Do you remember the part of the one movie where they go into the room and there's those star shaped lights? They start talking about how good the lighting and shadows are.

A night level you could probably make yourself. By inclosing the level in a box to shade from th elight. Like in the dmeo when they go inside and its dark.

OMG you could have a light star stuck on your head to see where your going. The level would be pitch black that woudl be funny as.

you could make a torch and have the guys carry them

Chase

You could have glowing material or like light emitting material for your sackboy. That would look cool.

AoD

glow in the dark sackboy!

Chase
07-18-2007, 01:23 AM
Yeah just imagine how mad that would be walking througha really dark level with a glow in the dark sackboy. It would look really good.

Just think about the possibilities. If you can add a fire, you just take a very tiny shapes and create a lantern! Otherwise, you can just add other lights.

Chase
07-18-2007, 01:37 AM
That woudl be mad. Running through by the light of your lantern. woudl make for some interesting gameplay with stuff popping up when your running.

The only hard thing would be holding onto that and also grabbing and interacting with other items.

Edit: It would work perfectly in a maze like level with limited grabbing of other items.

Chase
07-18-2007, 05:17 AM
Nah you could just stick it to you like they stuck the star thing sto that dudes head. Or that could be part of the level. One guy holds the light while everyone works around him and helps him along.
That would be awesome.

AoD

I like the teamwork idea, but sticking a torch to your guy?

Don't they say you can use images off the Harddrive as backgrounds? Why not gifs?

Reshin
07-18-2007, 07:16 PM
so far all they said are jpeg files. Gif is kinda out of date, and they will need to pay some company so the game will be able to use them (As I heard since M$ didnt pay that company so Vista windows photo gallery don't support gifs)

Besides it would take too much space when saving the levels.

Chase

Having heaps of pictures is going to take up heaps of space on the levels. The levels are very small in terms of space and that will be blown out with all the pictures people are goign to add.

one of my favorite aspects of jak III was that time would pass as you played it, but it took like 10 min for a full day, as opposed to in WoW, which is realtime

what like you could choose tht would be cool but if it swapped every 10 minites that would be annoying. my opinion what do you think?
:cool:

Bright colours suit this game. Darkness wouldn't

it'll be both,but they will see different things.One person see's night while the other see's daytime


We need night and day and like dawn or something.
