Still the best cloth sim I've seen in a game. Nothing else comes close. And they've been doing it since 06...

You're right, but NBA players do not use baggy jerseys anymore, they use them tighter these days, and 2K Sports haven't done anything about that.

fine by me- looks impressive this way. I don't get why it isn't used more in games- it really makes a huge difference!...

I don't think we see it much because it's either pointless due to having few ways to show it off, or would be too resource hungry for the games which could show it off (like a third person shooter or something)

Basketball is kinda perfect for this sort of tech. Few players, small court, not much else going on, camera close enough in to warrent it. Now compare that to fifa...it'd be wasted/too power hungry. Too many players, too large of a pitch, camera too far out to notice.

The fight night games where also perfect for this sort of thing with the boxers shorts, and did it better imo.

Why it isn't in things like tekken etc is beyond me, but i'd assume it could have something to do with the outfit itself. I'm guessing collision is less complicated when it's uber baggy shorts and baggy jerseys. It still goes wrong quite a bit though.

Even if it bugs out now and then I'll take it. The game is still doing it for, what?- TEN guys simultaneously. And we aren't talking cloaks and loin cloths. they are doing shirts and shorts- at a very realistic level. If you've ever messed with cloth sim, you know how impressive it really is. They also have a massive animation set for the players too.

I never thought Fight Nights cloth sim ever came close( although the last 2 games were still decent). It's just like it is in their own(EAs) basket ball franchise...

    aphex187 @GriftGFX: I've always enjoyed BF3, always it's just I was playing DayZ more back then. Once the maps are ported over then back to 4 but we'll wait and see which ones do (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But I'll take Seinne and Kharg Island too :P (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @aphex187: You didn't find BF3 interesting until a week ago. BF3's expansions are great.. vanilla maps... eh. Once Bazaar is in BF4 I don't see the point. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @Doom_Bringer: If they incorporated the movement and gun mechanics of BF3 then it would be the perfect BF package. I hardly find any of the BF4 maps interesting, one reason why i've gone back to 3. (4 Hours ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 @GriftGFX: I hope that's in fact what they do with Battlefront. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm honestly more interested in see DICE LA make their own game. They should do the 2142 sequel. I hope Sweden has been paying attention to BF4. Their B-Team turned it into a much better game. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I hope Battlefront is more like BC2.. so BF5 can be another Battlefield game. (6 Hours ago)
