the graphics dont look that good, so i was thinking a really good video card wouldnt be needed. but other stuff.......?ObjectsInSpace said:Looks good, sounds good, but the system requirements will be murder. They always are for Maxis games; you need to wait for a year after buying the game for a machine to hit the market powerful enough to run it ...
It's difficult to see because A) the video (and all others on the subject) is on a hand-held camera and B) the game is still in development so graphics can still be improved. From memory, I believe The Sims 2 required over 2,000 MB to run smoothly.Chris. said:the graphics dont look that good, so i was thinking a really good video card wouldnt be needed. but other stuff.......?
Also - I forgot to mention this in my original reply - it would probably take a hell of a lot of computing power to make all the fluid real-time animations for each and every species. If you watch the original video, Wright brings out a few bizzare creations featuring multiple bizzare leg configurations and one that is so top-heavy that it runs the risk of falling over when it turns a corner (the "Ford Explorer" version). I think the required processes to actually store a species wouldn't be all that dificult, but the algorithms required to make the walking, playing and fighting animations based upon what the user inputs would be incredible.Chris. said:the graphics dont look that good, so i was thinking a really good video card wouldnt be needed. but other stuff.......?
