    Misc:
    Ammo crate:
    [​IMG]
    Engi menu (also similar to comm menu and buy menus):
    [​IMG]
    Radar:
    [​IMG]
    View from radar (Yes, you could use the radar and have an elevated view of the surrounding area)
    [​IMG]

    Things to note:
    - CVs had cannons
    - Armouries would resupply and heal just by walking inside them
    - APCs had interiors
    - Aircraft were a bitch to land
    - Both NF and BE had pretty much the same vehicles and buildings

    whoa! This is cool! However, I like it the way it is, APC interiors is an unnessecary strain on the engine...

    I like how that jeep looks like :D, even though you cant shoot the people inside it...

    Looks sort of like the Tumbler from batman returns...

    That BE fighter looks absolutely gorgeous. Also I think the older refinery design looks cooler.

    The dropship's the only thing that still looks good since it was the very last model we added. It's funny how some of those models like the repair bay and the turrets were other models that I recycled by modifying the original geometry.

    Heh... In comparison to the lighting of the Battlefield map, the lighting in emp_isle is very flat and drab. Everything is so much higher poly in Battlefield, too. Perrrrty.

    I've played the 1942 version a while ago, messed around with it for about 30 minutes, got angry at having no clue what to do and not having any servers to play on. Hosting a listen server and trying to do anything on it was like getting hit by a laccrosse ball going 90 miles per hours while drinking Green And British Tea at the same time. There is a huge diffrence between battlefield emp and source emp. Source emp=teh win with blimps and whales.

    "Depth of Field" is so very ugly and unrealistic in such extends.
    Resembling a severe visual impairment.

    But I've got to say looked good on BF engine.
    Source will seriously beat it some day, thought.
    (I'm taking into account that BF engine is far worse to mod for and a lot older)

    Wow what a difference. One thing I might add is that Armorys should be more like the BF1942 judging by those screenies they also acted as a bunker.

    I like the Engineer's toolkit screen - that looks better + the corner wall and the bunker thingy
