View Full Version : Foliage doesn't move...?

09-27-2008, 04:08 PM
I just started playing but I just realized that the foliage actually doesn't seem to move; the lighting is always changing, reflecting sunlight and shadow on the grass and trees but the trees themselves don't move.

I was just wondering if this was normal? If so, that's cool. It's a gorgeous game, in any case...

Are you playing on a PS3, 360, or PC?

I played AC on a 360 and, if I remember correctly, the trees and such moved for me. >_>

...of course, my mind may have failed again, and nothing actually moved for me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I'm playing on a pc, high-end, all my settings maxed.

The game actually looks great, the constant movement of the lighting and shadow work really well, and give the impression that the foliage is moving. But if you stop and actually focus on the foliage, it seems that its not moving at all...

Bare in mind I'm coming from Oblivion (whose foliage is one of the main draws of the game), but also The Witcher, which, mechanically, is quite similar to AC, and also has great moving foliage.
But the lighting and shadow in AC are so nice, I feel they can get away with it.
I just want to make sure this is normal and not a problem with my install.

I did mention this issue somewhere in this forum and hoped that they may release a patch or something for it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Cool, at least I know now that it's not a problem with my install...
