noveltyhero Posted September 29, 2014 Share Posted September 29, 2014 (edited) Hey there, So a while ago I posted a thread requesting that the ice tilesets get the northern lights added in because they are just too cool to be left out: https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/309621-corpus-tile-set-night-time-northern-lights-please/ Now I want to cover a wider variety of things. Day Cycles I think every planet should have these (why doesn't the gas tileset have it?) at least to some degree. It would be very interesting and they do change the feel of the tilesets making them feel more real and immersive. Night time on Earth? Well its daytime on Neptune (just an example) Weather Now this is something more complex but it could help, what if it rained every once in a while on Earth? or we had brief sandstorms on Phobos? (affecting us as well as the enemy in visibility) The water tilesets can have some storms above and the ice tilesets can have storms of snow every once in a while. Thus making those peaceful and beautiful moments much more visually worthy due to their rarity; i.e if you see northern lights everytime you go to the ice tilesets they get boring but if you see them occasionally you will certainly be frozen (get it?) in awe. Not every weather system crosses over and I am aware of the work (and optimizations and AI) required but I feel it is a step in the right direction into building a more immersive world without the ever so mentioned open world. Since the Liset already has moved the game to be more immersive Additional Suggestion of Node Placement on Planet by Egg_Chen The idea behind this is that each node is placed on a planet in such way that it reflects the planet's visuals. Right now on Earth you might see a dark side and a light side but if the cycle is daytime the entire planet is daytime which doesn't make much sense really. The day time or night time will depend on specific nodes and how they are grouped together. The circumference of a planet should be split up by a grid and every hour (or half hour) the grind placement changes. So one set of nodes will become light and another will become night. What do you guys think? Edited September 29, 2014 by noveltyhero Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
