Question 2 Metropolis's

Hi, thought this was intresting so i started a thread about it.

I've noticed that there's 2 Metropolis's the levels are identical but the textures are different, the sky and the egyptian ruins. Not Sure if this is anything to do with different versions Euro and USA.

1. What Metropolis looks like on My server.

2. On a server called "Germany".

Any Ideas?

This happens due to the difficulty setting, I've done this in single player. When the difficulty setting is set to tourist,easy,medium or hard the level looks like image 1. On serious however the background and lighting changes (image 2). Hope that helped!!

P.S If you want to know, it is done with 'spawn flags' in the editor where you can add or delete certain objects (models, enemies, ammo) from certain difficulty settings.

That's why the doors are the same colour
To make a map that changes lighting colour, you'd have to put both directional lights in exactly the same place so the map still displays the shadows

The thing with the "difficulty depending stuff" would be very great in SEd2! But unfortunately it was kicked out

When you play Metropolis on SERIOUS difficulty, you have sky as in Picture2.
When you play Alley of The Sphinxes and Land of the Damned (SSSE) on SERIOUS, you have different skies too !!

I've played this game 100s of times on all difficulties and I've never seen it look like that second picture. And I've had both the Euro and US version of the game.

It may be that it's coop only. I'm not sure, though. But I have seen all those background changes Wytas mentioned except Land of the Damned.

Also, if you go under the level in City of the Gods you see a second background not used.

I tested playing Metropolis in SSFE v1.05 Single Player on SERIOUS and I got another background

It must be a single player mode thing. I never play single player, even when it's just me.

Nope, it occurs in cooperative too, I assure you. I suggest you open your eyes next time you play. Remember that Serious is three difficulties higher than you play on.

Maybe you still have SSFE beta version that CroTeam sent you 7 years ago to test?
All in all, Metropolis, Alley of the Sphinxes and Land of the Damned have different bcg s on SERIOUS (and sometimes HARD), no matter if it's SP or MP
