Well, it turned out that my laptop is no match for the game  :P . 0.7 fps and a glowing GPU were the result. What would I give to have my desktop computer now! I assume that the best thing for me to do is stop buying all of the .303 stock at Cabela's each time that I go there and invest in a good PC  ::) .

Does the editor work or just the game that's the problem?

Or were you talking about the minimum requirements of TW. :P

Alas it is the game and also the editor  :-\ . But at least I will have something to look forward to.

Should rotate those two trees on the far left a bit, but looks alright.

Sir Apple is right. :)

---------

The thing about CE3 SDK is this, bunch of tutorials:

http://freesdk.crydev.net/dashboard.action          <--- the encyclopedia of it.

Youtube: World of Level Design, Jed Sanderson (just type in their name and add cryengine3 or such after their name ;)).


Those are your main players of tutorials. :)

Just to back up what has been said above....I tried the CE3 SDK when it was first released and after a 30 minute youtube tutorial and about an hour of "mapping" I had a beautiful island complete with textures, terrain and statics that would have taken me many dozens of hours on the old BF2 editor.  If this game ever does release and is popular I think I will have to give mapping a hard look again.

The purpose of this deployment was to "annoy and defy the United States ... on her with Bofors 40 mm guns from a range of 650

Yes, at first I thought I was weak or something trying and trying the BF2 editor, but still no luck.
CE3 SDK: seemed like everything was too easy. :)

Traction Wars I think will be a popular game: excellent graphics, free to play and standalone (similar to War Thunder in a way).

Easier terrain design should raise the bar for the quality of maps though. When everyone can do a good map already, then there can certainly be done a lot better as well. So I am looking forward to top notch quality maps while I hope for as much historical accuracy as possible, not only awesome looks the engine offers.

Oh fuck off! This is just beautiful screenshot. About the HUD, bit too minimalistic for my taste, but what the hell, it's all right.
