PostSubject: Anyone Know why this happens?   Wed Jun 02, 2010 5:27 am

I found out something very interesting when i was browsing the SDGO shop.
In the picture it shows my DSH, but thats not the main point here. What i was
surprised about was when i clicked on the "Metal 60" there was an image of a
desert being reflected. Anyone know why this happens?

yeah i think that's just the standard 'fake reflection' for the metal paint.. it doesnt actually reflect whats going on around you.

Nobody has time to admire the shiny metal reflection on your robot when they're close enough to be sinking their blades into it. I am guilty of putting metal 40 coats on a few of mine anyway 1.8k G for 5 paints? I'm sold.

Pretty obvious answer, more gloss.

You know, I was noticing something similar the other day...



It kinda reminds me of the "colony fall" stage from 0083. I thought it was odd that its a desert instead of a colony!

Its a trick I've seen in other games- glossy/metal/shiny models tend to have a set "reflection". I remember that if you zoomed into the right places of the "Metal Mario Trophy" from Super Smash Bros. Melee, you could see a perfect reflection of the Yoshi's Island stage.

yeah i think for sdgo it's not an easter egg.. it would prob make the requirements for this game much higher if the gloss was dynamically reflective. or its just laziness!

Its a trick graphic designers use to save memory. I can see them doing it for MS (since there are few large flat surfaces on character models) but for the colony building? Yeah, its laziness... or maybe they didn't anticipate bored players in jump rooms. It wouldn't take that much more memory to store an image of... I dunno, A COLONY INTERIOR. Eh, what can ya do.
what do u think

On a side note, I thought I might add some other oddities I've seen...

I have no clue what happened here.

Sometimes with my Kyrios when I use the "fighter mode" special while Trans-Am is up.. I get some pretty odd graphic colors afterwords...





Weird, huh? Whenever I go back into fighter mode it goes back to normal... Also, the only things I've done to it is change the orange to a slightly darker orange, and add stickers.



GM SNIPER II HAS NO KNEES. WTF?! Oh, and the buildings fall through the floor



The Sasabi died early in the match... its funnels were haunting me...


He got stuck... I thought it was funny.


My bro and I were goofing off with our training suits. (He wants my Zaku and I want his GM > >; ) I'm BEHIND him and he's hitting me! I also have a picture of him using his special like this. Its pretty odd.


STOMP.

The poor guy was stuck the entire match.


I miss my "glitched" Re-GZ...
