#4493410 Detailed Graphics Comparison PC vs Console

Posted by Kewlin on 10 August 2017 - 10:52 AM

I agree, The game has color again!  Sure shadows may not work right yet, but they might have had to make cutbacks to even get it functioning on consoles because the hardware is total @ss.  Your vision is a lot clearer in the upgrade too because they got rid of that god awful blue filter.  Personally I like APB with more color.  Or any color for that matter.  Only complaint really is that from the screenshots of the PC version they shared, light pollution at night and star shaped bloom didn't make a comeback.


There's a difference between RTW, which had some color, and EU, where San Paro is a gosh darning box of crayons.


RTW was fine, the EU is not.

APB was just a medicore shooter, the customisation for chars and cars is what made it as big as it has gotten. But with the shooter part now beeign nearly unplaybe by performance and cheaters and population, not even customisation can save that. But you can guess if APB never had that customisation it would have died a few years ago already.


IMO APB is tied with Destiny for the best shooter I've ever played. Cheaters and pop doesn't make a poor shooter.

I asked mod 20 to move it back for you.

OT: I really wish they'd just allow players to do their own color grading.

Honestly prefer how the new PC engine looked and still hope that's what the final version will look like for everything


I still don't get why the Villaneuva hotel got its trim turned red instead of the original blue.

vehicle horn audio


I love the full-auto Vaquero horn.


Also don't forget the numerous broken vehicle lights, especially turn signals.

When I think about all of the things they gosh darned up in the Engine Upgrade I become sick to my stomach.


aside from the obvious performance issues, the console version just looks like they maxed out saturation values for everything, and then threw random colored accents on random things because they fired their art and design team so they have no idea what theyre doing visually


also every single "dark" area is disgustingly not dark or even remotely realistically shadowed


I totally agree, the fact that they did all of these things while obviously having nobody qualified to lead their art direction is disgusting. It's also obvious they don't even have any qualified technical artists either, judging by how many effects got ruined in the transition.

stuffs 4 cent on the community market


Oh is it now?



wait... was APB the first game to offer customization?


Honestly, as far as actual customization goes that's actually significant, I'd say Rockband was the first game I played that had actual customization, but APB was second, and you'd at the very least need to be blind to say that Sneekface is incorrect in saying no other game has matched APB's levels of customization, especially considering all of the symbol work that you do.

Nice to know that some of the devs were smart enough to leap from the proverbial burning car with no brakes


They were part of the RTW team, not the G1 team, so it's more than likely they were thrown through the windshield when it hit a non-existant San Paro style bump in the road and happened to land in some other company.

#4492870 CrimeCraft Is Shutting down

Posted by Kewlin on 05 August 2017 - 07:54 PM

Crimecraft has always been a really. . . really bad game, the fact that it's survived this long is a testament to how easy it is to keep up game servers.

Making a new friend in-game, having a grand time, and two years later: seeing that they had last logged in two years ago.





#4489956 Anyone interested in learning to make symbols?

Posted by Kewlin on 17 July 2017 - 10:46 PM

If you ended up doing a stream I might watch, maybe after the fact though.


If you do something I'd appreciate it if you messaged me. You know where to find me.

Honestly, I'd rather give up a little ease of driving for a better barrier.

Where are all of these cheaters? Are they only on Bronze district? 'Cause every time I log on I don't see them.

You expect RP to revert something they wrecked? Next you're going to say they should fix the passenger's camera on the 4x4!
