    It's strange, how they said it WOULD be available today, yet it isn't going too, and we probably won't know.

    Ya shading techniques, you know, not using a workaround for shadows and instead fully rendering the shadows. If they got soft shadows in there and lowered the contrast it would look real.

    P.S. Yay, you're a ZOMBIE now! Hehe...

    I now know what Gabe meant all of those times he said "It was a design descision, not a technical limitation."

    that video made my jaw drop like no other.

    Doom 3, I'll admit, is a better engine for shadows, and graphics. But after looking at the video Valve put out today.....it isn't by much.

    Ha, you just described a whole new engine.

    To say it is non-existent isn't exactly correct from this response from Gabe:

    Let's see if I can say this properly.

    In Half-Life 1, world collisions and collision culling were handled by gross bounding boxes. If something collided with the bounding box, you could then compare it against a group of hit boxes. This was pretty coarse.

    In Half-Life 2, entities can also have an associated vphysics collision
    model. This is what the physics uses, and gives per polygon collision
    information. Gross bounding boxes are now used mainly for culling. Hit
    boxes now have more flexibility (they move with the bone they are assigned to, for example). If you need polygon level collision information (which is useful for a lot of things) then you'll be using the vphysics model and not the hit boxes.

    You could, if you wanted to, build a mod that did per-poly vphysics collisions for every entity. However there are lots of times when hit-box
    collisions give you all the information you need.

    I think the confusion about this arose when someone at Valve was asked "does HL-2 have hit boxes" and the answer was "yes". This was technically accurate, but left off the information the questioner was actually after.

    Gabe

    Unless I misunderstood the above message...
