SOE programmer Ryan Favale's had rain
The no-brainer, as it had been. But then, blazing sunshine offers that terrible juxtaposition of demise and the domestic that this Walking Dead excels at. Luckily, sandbox shooter H1Z1 can perform both, and plenty in between. SOE programmer Ryan Favale's had rain, clouds, surface area wetness and a sponsor of other weather conditions systems working for some time now - and it is currently finishing up powerful snow which forms and melts based on temperature, humidity as well as wind. SOE have been in the process of changing weather control through player PCs in order to H1Z1’s servers. That is not so that they can enact Truman Show thunderstorms with the flick of the dial, but rather to ensure an even playing field.

It’s Favale’s job to ensure everybody is actually “playing the game on the same page”. If cyber-terrorist can turn off haze and rain results, goes the thinking, they can enjoy a substantial advantage over their own survivalist peers - and that won’t do. Weather concessions for low-end systems are being designed with the same ethos - Favale says they’ll have “very comparable impact” upon play to the much more visually impressive storms on high-end Personal computers. There’s a question mark over whether powerful snow will make this into H1Z1’s first early access release - but eventually the game will be governed by a powerful server controller which manipulates wherever overhead clouds form, the angle of the sun, the direction of rolling haze,
and possibly even severe visual events such as dust storms as well as meteor showers. “Combined with a day/night period, we're getting into seasons and astronomical effects on the world you play in, ” said Favale. “We’re hoping to deliver to you such an immersive encounter you'll forget what the weather is outdoors your very own office or bedroom. ”SOE tend to be building H1Z1 upon Planetside 2's Forgelight engine, which means the dev team began with plenty of environmental tools to attract upon. Do you expect to be playing H1Z1 in the office? It’s hard to gauge just how sold SOE’s public are on their success shooter.
