View Full Version : Are gates taller tha AT-AT's?

I was wondering will gates and walls be taller than AT-AT's? They should be.

Good question. AT-ATs r massive compared to the gates shown.
Maybe there will be a special MECH GATE:atat:

Give me a link to a screenshot with a gate in it and I will try to figure it out. I always thought that the gates would be a force field or something.

Well in the earlier tech stages, like 1 or 2, than they may be solid walls, and in stage 3, and 4 they become force fields. I really like the idea of a MECH gate, that is an interesting idea.

I hope the gates aren't rising gates like in AOK. That'd be a bit..uhm....anachronistic. Force feilds sounds feasible. Gates that slide to the sides would work for the lower tech levels too.

Yeah if the gate force fields didn't have a top to them and slide to the side then you wouldn't have to worry about how tall they are just how wide.

I remember gaber saying somewhere that when they resized the units, they had to change it so that he ATATs could fit through the gates, so i'm assuming they can. That would really stink if you couldn't get an ATAT out of your base!

On the boards of theforce.net i mentioned that with the new AT-AT art they couldn't fit trough the gates anymore. mr. Gaber said back than the gate art had been changed.

So I presume they are just forcefields sliding to the side. With no top on top.

Thank you. If they had to resize the AT-AT making it smaller they should have huge Mech Gates

:confused: its just a game, does it matter what the 'gates' look like?

Yes, If you have a tiny gate and a huge machine going through it, that is just stupid.

Of course

09-11-2001, 08:43 PM
yeah to make the whole gate thing easier, they should enable friendly units to pass through the forcefield, without it having to slide or anything, and enemy units must break it down, but no passing through

the force fields would just be particle sheilding?

No it would probably be both.
