I can't for the life of me understand why you people want small maps.
Hmm, I didn't know we had bullet travel time and bullet drop in BC2. I never play snipers.

Anyway, wind wouldn't be hard to calculate. It simply has to be blowing in a certain random direction universally across the entire map, and we can simply treat it as gravity in the horizontal direction. Think of it as horizontal bullet drop.

Others need to learn from how EA and DICE have marketed this game.

Lol. A lot of people don't (play snipers.) Bullet travel time and drop affect every gun in BFBC2 though.

How would we convey the windage to the player? Would it always be blowing in a certain direction on a map? Someone mentioned having inclement weather in MP the other day. Hm.

SgtBigRig: Of course it resembles BFBC2 graphically. What else did you expect? However, surely you can see the improvements in textures, lighting, and soft shadows. Gameplay wise, who buys battlefield games for the single player? To me, we're just getting warmed up for the real previews, the MP footage.

I don't think there was even 1 second of multiplayer footage in that gameplay trailer.

And on the graphics note, not even close. Try watching it in 1080p, full screen.

The problem is that wind is not universal across an entire map. It should vary.

sooooooooooooooooooooooooo uuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. What do you expect from a first person shooter, and one based on the military.

bad company was basically battlefield 2, and bf2 was merely vietnam..... see where im going with this.

The graphics are 100% better when compared to the pretty good graphics of bc2, not to mention the animations of the soldiers is amazing, no comparison to another shooter is possible.

The gameplay..........well there is only so many ways of doing a first person shooter............ Seems like dice has gone the route of shooting people again.

To sum things up. You wont be missed when it launches.
