Before you all look to an expansion pack..

Ok, lets put it like this then. Lets say Grin's whole team is working on bug/fixes. Putting together a nice list for when they are done and ready for an expansion pack is a good idea. Would you rather wait till they have already started making the expansion to start giving them ideas for something we would want in an expansion pack?

Besides...just cause we put up what we want doesnt mean they are gonna drop everything now and start working on it because we posted it.....lol

Seems better to give them info on what we want ahead of time rather than to wait. Also....starting this (what we want in an expansion pack) early gives everyone a chance to put in ideas or vote.

I know there has been talk, but is there a confirmed expansion pack?

I agree with what you guys said, fix the (remaning) issues, (which so far GRIN has done good at), then work on or at the same time work on the expansion pack.

But I tell you one thing, to be accepted, the expansion pack better have it's stuff right.

But I have faith GRIN knows what we want, and they will deliver.

DeathDealer...

Usualy Dev teams do both. Work on current bug/fixes and work on the up and coming expansion pack.

That would be the case, only a few working on add ons and rest other stuff.

I am assuming by other stuff you don't mean party poker and internet porn.

LOL!

Isn't that where the big bucks are? :P

The wife asks me why I have been upstairs so long I say"just doing some other stuff darling"

We will find out soon enough whats being worked on I expect, although we might find out sooner as one member of Grin`s staff does tend to put his foot in it :P

You are correct, it isn't those things.... it's laddering in pool. :lol:

However, I don't recall if it is 9-ball or 8-ball. :hmm:

If the Diesel Engine cant render fog, and can only draw distance to 150 metres then it will not be possible for GRIN to produce the wide open rural maps that we love. So I dont see how they'll get the gig, I thnk UBIwill look elsewhere.

I think you will find those 2 bits of info are wrong bro. It can render fog as seen in earlier screen shots, and the DD is more because a mod at the moment being produced, is far longer, and this is not urban.

One could probably coax the current engine into a high LOD draw of the entire Mexico City map, but as pointed out above it would wreck a Cray and have Nvidia techies wearing adult undergarments and drooling on themselves. I respect the DD decision, as it works well enough with the maps we've been given. That's not my gripe with the engine...

My gripe with the engine is with PHYSICS! Believe it or not, I think it's flawed in regard to character movement physics. Ever notice that when you are walking or running along a horizontal surface, when it suddenly becomes more vertical than horizontal you are still bound to the surface directly beneath you and you lose ALL forward momentum immediately? All characters in GRAW are apparently also equipped with Spider Man boots or something. Try this:

Go to the top of a staiewell. Go to the opposite side of where you exited the stairs from. RUN into the opening in the floor where the stairs are.

Your forward progress will immediately halt while you fall straight down, instead of gradually falling off as would happen IRL. This alone isn't such a big deal to me since we can't bunny hop like morons anyhow. But it underscores where a real limitation to the engine MAY exist. Unbinding characters from surfaces.

I'd like to see some discussion on GRiN's part of the engine's capabilities and limitations, but I also doubt this is the right forum for it...

That depends on when the expansion pack releases. If it releases after early next year, then why worry 'bout it? GR4 will probably be out, maybe not but awefully close, so do people go to GRAW or GR4?

personally this time round, i will play test the crap out of GR4's Demo before even bringing the green out of my wallet.

We certainly wouldn't want that. Cray's are expensive but adult diapers are just horrific. Egads! :blink:

So we rename GRAW to AW cos there aint no GR about it, then they release AW Expansion.

Meanwhile, a new Dev releases GR4 which is actually only GR2, but we wont care cos it will play like [GR] with better graffix.

YAY!!

LOL a new dev?

I would see it not getting better but worse. Lets see... hmm we'll make the guys that made Desert combat in BF1 do it... then we'll have another BF2 clone.

How about.. lets hope they have been working and updating an expansion all this time with more of what we want.

Well really that is all a matter of opinion. I like Graw and would like an expansion.

That's ok. but wouldn't that be stupid to have a new game (GR4) come out around the GRAW expansion pack?

not wise...

Who said anything about an expansion coming around the same time as GR4? Plus...do you really think GR4 is gonna be released on its first scheduled date? Come on...dont think soo!

You can call it stupid but i think it would be perfect. Lets say they plan on a release of an expansion for the same time as GR4. Well...we all know there is no way GR4 would be on time so what better to make us content then an expansion pack. Personly i think if they do an expansion it would probably be out around christmas so it wouldnt conflict with GR4 anyway.
