    On the awesome AMC series Breaking Bad, Jesse was playing through a wicked looking Rage level 2 episodes ago.

    Saw a TV ad a few days later for the game that looked really lame... let's hope it doesn't suck. Like D00m3.

    THe PC version looks the same as console version (really bad texture resolution)

    That's when the super packs come in - im confident i'll be something substantial.

    thread OP upd:

    - Modding Section(PC only): x64 bit and mod tool release info (fucking finally found this)





    There is a high chance that the first (free?) packs or (crappy payable) DLC will be "super quality textures pack" for PC. This means RAGE's textures will look like crysis if not even better after you apply the ?~25+? GB update. :D This content is already done it's sitting in their studio - they just need to prepare and release it. They made the game originally for PC :) And they made it all super-quality , but very very EXTENSIVE and a combination of different compression tools was used to make the +150 GB game into a 25GB shipping product.

    There can also be kinect/HMD/Eyefinity support in future patches. (HMD is head mounted display)

    Thanks Ruski. I'll scrutinize the OP closer in the future so I don't ask already answered/retard questions. :banghead:

    This is a picture of DVDs that were release candidates for RAGE - they got to rid off those that weren't "quite there"

    ID Software finally put a logo sign outside the studio:

    when Carmack talked about creating a high resolution texture pack he was only speculating. I also remember him saying the mod tools would be limited.

    watch 47:46 in

    He mentioned that 4-5 times - one subject

    Tuned up
    future up quality packs
    super quality pack
    10times the bitrate 2GB level
    sad artists


    That's as good as 99% planned.


    Modding tools aren't limited - it's just hard to make a new megatexture - but you won't be able to create console assets.

    I don't know if it was in the context but Carmack mentioned "we'll get that tuned-up relatively soon" - speaking about high quality packs


    before BF3 ... after , on xmas ... no idea but probably still in 2011 would be nice.


    Somebody help translate this:

    Update:

    Rage x32 might have dev-console - i remember carmack saying:
    it's down to his context context - it's not a fact but it's a possibility.


    It's here on 1:18:30
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00Q9-ftiPVQ

    Yeah - there is really no reason for x32 to not have dev console - i don't see any limitation whatsoever. It just sounds funny as carmack previously noted dev consoles as "debug tools" - who knows if he meant the whole console.



    UPDATE_2:

    CUDA Support: "only a small modular part"

    So much for steam fanboys

    Rage is 49 EUR on Steam
    Rage is 35 EUR on my local web retailer in my country :p

    The glorious UK Retailers have even lower prices at 26 GBP that is like 30 EUR

    never belived in steam and never will - but im forced to use it to play Rage

    I don't find chat - achivements clouds and all those loadsofstuff not useful at all - guess what - im too old for this stuff that a 13 old sees and goes "WooooW".

    As long as Steam doesn't crash or annoy me - i should be fine.

    Just as a comparrison for people to have an idea what kind of difference carmack speak about here "what's 4k by 4k texture on consoles we can do *smiles:D* 16k by 16k texture on the PC"

    these are pixels (resolution)

    for this comparrison let me use one pixel as one byte (but it's just numbers - bytes/size has no connection)

    4096x4096 = 16777216
    16384x16384 = 264908176

    say we apply the results as bytes and convert to megabytes to bring down numbers

    and we get:

    consoles: 16 MB
    PC: 256 MB

    Well That's a difference. Disregard actual size - it doesn't work like that in reality. Space Size doesn't increase linearly(exponentially) with resolution size.
