Really strange bzpic... looks like fire

Post by RPG » Thu Nov 18, 2004 3:31 am

doesnt this look like a flame????

it was taken at about 9999999 ft. high on secretplace's 'really high teleporter' I just fired one shot and it made this. everything was distorted at the extreme height. i'm suprised my tank didn't die from lack of oxygen.

yes, i knew that, its just strange how that happens, must not be any sky textures for places THAT high. if you've never played on secretplace before, you're so high that you can't even see the 'elevation square' around your tank on the radar until you're on the final 1/4 stretch of the fall. It's a massive height.

The rendering code in the game never expected tanks to be so high in the air. Because of that, you tend to have graphical blurring at extreme heights.
