Why wouldn't they need an good TOD artist to the team? Isn't the TOD what stands for the majority of the looks of the game? A good TOD versus a bad TOD can make quite some serious difference. If you can't see that, you're blind... Why do you have disbelieve in yourself? You know HP? Helder pinto? Who won the Intel crytek mapping contest a while back? He made that Vulcano island map. Now he's in the Crytek mapping team making levels for upcoming titles from Crytek. He was like nobody before, but with great mapping skills. Crytek hired him. Why wouldn't a TOD artist be a part of the level design team? if this contributed to the games looks and graphics?

It's a UFO!!!

But I think the light in the desert ToD is too intense. You don't have to be able to see the horizon, but I can barely see the difference between ground and sky now.

your not meant to see the difference between the sky and ground so if you move away from the plane too far its difficult to find your way back making you have to decide whether to go and look for water or stay at the plane and wait to die of dehydration ;) or clever people could pick up objects and carry them some distance then drop them to create a path :D or use the planes signal flares and go searching at dusk or in the morning where the light is going to be lower :rolleyes: :D

Darn straight! Good God, Hawkeye, this is just amazing! And I, too, want to know if that texture is actually stock Crysis.
