I am not new to the game since I got it one year ago. The game has advanced in so many areas except one! And that is the environment detail. It is still horrible to say the least.
The effects in the game look 11/10. In the recent recap, the mine explosion looks too good to be true. But the trees and the grass in the game look like from a 2002 game, also the lighting make things to bright or too fogy like in the early 2000's games.
Lets compare squad environment vs a mod for Battlefield 2 (Forgotten Hope 2). VS
In this squad screenshot bellow everything looks pre-alpha, the environment with it's colors is all over the place and does not blend in well.
In the end I want to say, that squad it self is great, but for me I want to feel like I'm there. So I don't play squad since I hate the way it looks.
I would suggest for the developers to create or buy or generate far more tree models, since it''s mostly the same tree everywhere. Also change the ground textures form brown to more green, so that the grass and the ground could blend in better together. Since now it just sticks out too much.
Anybody feels the same? What do you guys think? Please post your opinions.
