Currently, it's planned to be a free indie game on Crytek 3 Engine. :)

Nope. FC3 uses an upgraded version of the FC2's Dunia engine.

CryEngine 3 is Crysis 2, CryEngine 2 is Crysis 1 and CryEngine 1 is FarCry 1

I know it's WIP and most likely not even anything that ingame will represent, but are the scales all bonkers in this art-piece or am I bonkers?



- Soldiers seems very small, like the sidewalk edge is huge compared to them.
- Guns, for example the Lee Enfield, do not look like they are correct scale.

The scale was indeed off the charts on that one, weapon scales have been edited to the appropriate size. As for the sidewalk, I think the angle is making it look very steep. Perhaps it's placed a bit high.

But yeah, WIP. If they would make the same picture today it would look much different already.

The Lee Enfield looks indeed a bit small, but probably thats just the perspective.
I have been watching this project since you guys started it and i am really glad
that you are still holding on to it! Keep up that good work :)

I always wondered what polycount you guys use for weapons, playermodels and
vehicles. Maybe if one of you guys is reading this you could tell me?

Weapons for CryEngine 3 are averaged around 6,000, but that varies, sometimes more, sometimes less.

Vehicles are around 20,000, but that also varies on the vehicle.

I don't remember the playermodel specs.

Apple beat him to it but our other artist Brrr also wrote a reply on the subject, together with a screenshot where you can see the scaling is fixed.

We are aware of the scaling issues of the weapons and map statics, in particular the lee Enfield rifle as shown in that recent screenshot - the issue has how now been resolved. The results of which can be seen in our Christmas screenshot!
http://www.moddb.com/games/traction-wars/images

 For weapons we usually put a maximum limit of 9-10k polys - though we very rarely hit that limit - the average poly count for our weapons is at around 7k.

 Vehicles and Characters naturally have an increased limit - on average our vehicles and characters stand at 15k - 20k on the full detail models.
