LoA 3d. a major pain or not that hard?

The 2.5d is abit hard to see your way at times, plus, I love the building sys in Coman Exiles. that may be hard in 2.5d...

  • Are you talking about the current game status? The game is in full 3D, it’s just locked to a top down view with the added ability to zoom in.

    Are you asking for a 1st to 3rd person view parameter like in WoW, FFXIV, etc...?

    That would be a massive untertaking. First, the graphics would have to be reworked, textures, models, shadows, etc... Then there’s the question of their current engine. Unity has not historically played well with 1/3 view mmos, and their world files. Look at Shroud of the Avatar for an example of disaster!

  • I’m aware of the Torque engine. You do realize how hard it is to change a game engine right? Everything on LoA was done on unity. It would require a complete rebuild from scratch, which would send the dev team backwards about 3 years.

    Don’t get me wrong. I’m a fan of the Unreal 4 engine. LoA is done in unity though, and what’s done is done. Release has taken long enough already.
