rommel,
the awing i have is from pcgamer of last month. there has been no shots of a-wings whatsoever in any of the screenshots, so i'll scan one tomorrow (when i get my mag back). i got a couple of people who are more nuts about this game than i am. anyhow, i was just saying that gaber and co. might have enhanced the look of the unit since then......

it's a good bet they do. some unit look a bit cartoony compared to the 'realistic' look of, for example, the Y-wing

yeah, the y-wing with 4 engines doesn't look right to me.

but i meant that it looks so nicely detailed for the rest. it really is the kind of unit-graphic I expected when i heard GB was going to be done with the AOK-engine.
the At-At's look awesome now, too..

yeah, the y-wing is cool, just get rid of the 4 engines. but the detail is starting to look great just looking at the newest screenshots.......

Yes, it seem that they have added alot of detail to the new screenshots, alot more than in the old ones. Amd yes, the AT-AT and Y-Wings look very nice, as do the the buildings we see, i think.

i really, really enjoy the look of the Wookiee buildings. they're exactly like they described them before: based on wood, but technologically advanced.
The Gungan buildings actually look like something out of Starcraft..

yeah, but i want to see screenshots of buildings ! all i've seen so far is mostly battleshots on Coruscant's metal surface.
for instance, what does the imp towncenter look like ?
i know how the Gungan, Rebel, Trade Fed. and Naboo one look..

patience, Tie, patience...

seriously, i get the feeling that all they want to show from the imps are fighters and the AT-AT. The Wookiee buildings looked terrific and i just wonder if Imp structures are up to scratch..

they don't look bad... it's just that the Y-wing looks very detailed and the A-wings look a bit more cartoony.

but then again an A-Wing simply doesn't have that kind of detail.

i'm starting to appreciate graphic-designers even more now..
