tropical landscape and jungles?
« on: October 05, 2014, 05:47:50 pm »

Hello, i was thinking of buying this game and im wondering if this game has tropical islands and jungles. if it doesent, are they planed? also deserts, are they in or are they planed? also, is the world in a 1 to 1 size, like is mount everest actually 8km high? also, can you just walk or can you only fly? i understand this is an alpha, but i really wanted those features to be in. so are those features in or planed? plus boats. i know there arent any boats atm, but are they planed? i really wanted to sail the oceans...

 ... no dynamic sand dunes ... but deserts in terms of terrain and texture overlay yes ... doe, vegetation in tropic places too, will be after some biome enhancements. All, hills should be as they are (+- few meters due to terrain data). As for boats, there are a few models, but only fan-made. Doe, if you find some nice model, importing it should go ...

There are boats and aircraft, and jungles are planned for sure.

ho cool, thanks. just one more thing tough: can you freely turn your head while inside a vehicle cockpit? because thats an instasold. also, can you freely change the size of roads so you can make an international highway with one click? or do you have to like place pre designed smaller sections? this is not very important, but it would be a nice touch.

ho ok just one more thing tough: is the world really 1:1 sized? like, if a country takes x time to cross irl, will it take that same x time to cross in game, assuming i move at the same speed?

yeah, but is there a source wich states its 1:1 size, like the devs? because thats why i wana buy it. also, lets say im in a random place and i see a random hill for example. can i find that random hill in that random place in outerra, since it uses sattelite data? sorry for the bunch of questions, but this game just seems like the game i always wanted, so it makes me very skeptical xD
