  • Carmack on Doom 3 - Vehicles

    One thing I haven't liked from the vids of HL2 and Doom 3 is the lack of vehicles. The following is a quote from a recent interview with Carmack:

    We've got some neat things where you can control some big machines and do some cool stuff, but it is still a 'running a person around, shooting at things in the world' game, and I didn't want to make it anything other than that. We have vehicle code in there that I know Splash Damage is playing with and making buggies and stuff fly around, but I'm most mistrustful of adding that sort of thing.
    Even if you don't agree that Doom 3 will be great, you gotta know there will be some good games come out of the engine. I'm VERY happy to see that he is including vehicle support. I think BF1942 has set a new standard in FPS and hope to see more like it. I can only imagine what BF1942 would look like in a Doom 3 or HL2 engine. :shock:

    UT2k4 has vehicles in it. From what I have read, its being called BF42 with better graphics.

        Lack of vehicles in HL2? Didn't you watch that video with the buggy on the beach. Take it from me, its a tonn of fun to drive around, running over aliens and bad-guy soldiers :D

            Not really required. Granted I have a decent system now, but its not Uber L33t.

            AMD 2800 Barton
            1 GB ram
            128 Radeon

            I can run it at full detail, 1024*768, no framerate lag. And thats on Alpha/Beta code.
