          using one big texture means artists can make every level bespoke with its own artwork instead of repeating common assets

          pay attention to all the detail in the walls on pic related. there's no repetition or tiling it's just one unique scene

                incorrect, he was heavily involved in design decisions, art direction, music direction and tone. the "metal" feel of doom is primarily attributable to romero, who wrested away creative control from carmack who wanted more deep sci-fi. this happened the same way for quake.

    Nobody every talks about it so I felt like I have to bring it up every time, but RAGE really shone in enemy reactivity. Not that reactive enemies in an action game was novel, even 10 years ago, but the fluidity in animations flowing from running into stumbling etc was incredibly impressive. Even nowadays with modern games there are frequently janky animation shifts without any kind of convincing transition. Also their handcrafted facial animations were top tier. First since hl2 to do it that well. Nowadays so much facial animation work is just sanding off mocap work and higher level expressiveness has suffered for it.

      AMD ruined the perception of rage with their broken opengl drivers, which they *just fixed*

      they're bragging about 72% opengl performance increase...john carmack stated in 2011 that their drivers were not opengl compliant and rage was broken for half of people because of that.

      I think DOOM 2016 and Eternal kept a lot of the animation technology which is really obvious if you watch the imps scurry around, but it's a lot harder to appreciate in id's newest games than in RAGE because of the increased speed and overall chaos.

      My problem with Rage 2, besides not having qt girls and other cool looking characters, is that it lacks of content and side characters development.

              your inability to analyze what is good and bad is sad, i dunno how people fail at this. rage 2 is using the just cause engine and movement and shooting inherently feels totally wrong.

      No. The reason regular textures are still the industry-standard is because they are easy, cheap, and when done properly, the player doesn't detect undesired tiling or texture re-use.

      "Megatextures" claims to be two things - an innovative technology (this is true), and a useful technology (this is false). People will try to retcon this and claim "it was too advanced for their time", or "the industry doesn't like innovation", but these are bullshit takes.

      Much like voxels, megatextures is simply a technology that isn't very useful or practical, so there's no reason to do it. Eventually, there will be a groundbreaking advancement that combines materials, three-dimensional volumes, and surface visualizations into one technology.

      At that point, creators will "paint" materials and rely much less on polygonal architecture, flat surfaces, and 2d texturing, but "megatextures" is not that, it is a dinosaur with an iPhone - more advanced than the other dinosaurs around it, still fucking ancient and worthy of extinction.

          Two textures at the right side are stretched as fuck. And the screenshot isn't taken right next to it.

      I wonder if it's something like Prey 2017 where Bethesda had to slap the name "Rage" on a new product in order to hold such a generic trademark.

          Plays like an early version of Doom16's combat, mostly due to the impressive enemy animations+movements.

            The actual shooting and movement feels better than Quake 2 or Doom 3, even with the ADS and sprint tacked on. Enemies are well-designed and every on-foot shootout is cathartic.

            That being said, people shit on RAGE because everything wrapping together those brief moments of FPS perfection suck, including the barren open world, the retarded crafting systems, the nonsense plot, the tacked-on quest system, and the obligatory races though I admit driving the Mad Max cars around the world is pretty fun for a short bit

            Thanks guys, really liking the sound of that. Watching some gameplay now and I think I could even enjoy the vehicle combat. We'll see about the rest loo Gunplay's looking good at least

        It isn't - it is standing on the balcony of one of the apartments in the dead city. If you see the zipline on the left that is the next room over where you descend. I don't know why you seem to think screenshots from high locations are out of bounds.

          because you don't get that high in the game, you don't get to those exact perspectives. people tried to faslely shit on this game enough during its brief life, i have a heavy distaste for it. sorry if i'm wrong.

          when the game came out though if you were here you remember everyone clipping OOB all day and then finding the most compressed, darkest, lowest detail area they could find and pretending that was the game

          the game deserved SOME respect and TRYING to do revolutionary things deserves SOME respect.

          it is my opinion that rage still looked better than every game to come out for 1-2 years, in terms of full scenes. easily.

    Rage was like a hand made jalopy made from dustbin lids and tin foil that inexplicably had a indestructable frame and a ftl hyper drive. Whilst it runs fantastic with incredible performance and stability, with a kicking top speed to boot, it doesn't distract from the fact that it has no ac, no radio, no roof and no heater, and all the furniture is made from old tires. It's fun to drive once in a while for the experience, but you wouldn't want to live with it every day.

      very good combat/gunplay, looks nice, but story is meh and most of your time is spent just exploring the open world, clearing bases.

      needed 1 more year of development and it would have been great
      you can tell they had a solid rpg/fps idea, but rushed to realease and nothing outside of empty towns and quest dialogue that leads to no quests thats left

    rage was literally like a real-time painting. one of the last games where painted textures were taken to steroids levels.

    now the industry doesn't even paint textures, it's all just automated crap which is why everything looks soulless.
