was browsing and noticed this screenshot (http://media.pc.ign.com/media/617/617664/img_2083621.html). thought y'all would like to see it if you haven't already.

Nice explosion, and for you who wanted people to go flying, there you go :)

A nice explosion, indeed...
And if i'm correct, is that ragdoll physics applied to the airborne Rebel Corpse :D?

A very nice explosion... can't wait to see it in real-time. and the ragdoll physics are very very very nice. bodies flying through the air is awesome.

I'm so worried about Ragdoll, games where the model stays rooted in place and collapses using the physics are fine looking (Like Rainbow Six 3) but it just looks silly in sone games (Like Hitman). I really don't want to see a model bouncing and rolling backwards from a couple blaster shots...

Well yeah of course but that is an explosion... So it's gonna knock you back a bit.

who here thinks if there will be a series of explosions like one thing explodes and it hits anoter and it explodies and so on. also the debris form the exploded object will it put the grouwn on fire or something like a forest fire :) (very unlikly but realistic)

hmm, good questions. I think a chain of explosions would be cool. I don't think that you can start a forest fire, however.

Yeah I wasn't referring to this specific pic as far as my concerns about ragdoll, just made me think about it.

Also, concerning chain reactions: Im sure explosions will have some kind of area damage which could, if they were close enough, kill unlucky soldiers or destroy other nearby vehicles. Would certainly look pretty darn cool.

Yeah splash damage should be included to add to realism. If there is no splash damage you could charge an at-st and blow it without getting hurt.

Splash damage! That's the phrase I couldn't think of.

Splash damage? Hahaha. Imagine the damage done by an exploding AT-AT in Battlefront. Yeah, a chain of explosions is most likely as well. One huge explosion is rather dull, IMO.

Nice explosion and good dead soldier flying through the air

More likely several dead soldiers flying through the air maybe depending if the AT-AT was ferrying any troops at the moment of its destruction.

Seeing people fly through the air screaming is somtimes the best part of a game:p :D :D :D

bodies flying is aweesome, the ultimate example is the game "armed and dangerous", when you'd blow something from a distance you'll see people flying sky high and dropping right in front of your feet, it's awesome and hilarious at the same time :p What really would be awesome is that when they fly out the vehicles they hit the trees and drop

yea, just like in episode 6 where that one scout trooper hit the tree once he fell off his swoop bike :p

Yea, I've seen Ragdoll phisics done very poorly. They have to make sure the joints give the appropriate amount of resistence from moving in this or that direction.

I have to agree with you. In some games ragdoll just looks silly, because they didn't place the appropriate constraints on the joints, and the spinal cord etc. In UT2K3 the OTT ragdoll can be fun, but in other games it looks out of place.

I'd like to see better constraint in Battlefront to give it a more realistic feel.

I would like to see some action via a flythrough or gameplay or even a screenshot of an at-at walker. I think most original trilogy vehicles shown have been speeder bikes and at-st walkers.

Awesome explosion, but There is nothing in between an AT-ST's legs to explode. I think the head should explode, not the space between the legs. But it's still awesome looking.

that's the missile. The missile explodes, thats what you see, not the legs.
