    Q's Panoramic Screenshot Thread - New Pics!

    Hello everyone! I though I'd post another panorama screenshot thread dedicated to showing off some of the beautiful maps in UT3. We lost my original thread with quite a few screenshots due to the site's server crash, so it's a great time to start fresh and post some different shots.

    Background: These are images created using multiple screenshots from various UT3 maps. Each panorama consists of up to 45 images, which are "stiched" together to form one large image. Many images are formed with a circular projection lense and can seem a bit distorted due to the curvature of the lense. Some images are originally rendered up to 10000x4500px in size. These are huge images! But, I've resized them to 1200px in height, so the average monitor can display them and somewhat see the completed image. Resizing also help me keep the file size to a minimum. I've selected 1200px so that most people can crop to use as desktop wallpapers if they'd like to. Most images have be touched-up a bit in Photoshop to sharpen, add various effects, and to bring out the contrast and color.

    I can only upload up to four images per post, so I'll make another post just after this one, so I can add more images to the first page. Please comment! I'd love to hear your thoughts about UT3 maps, such as coloring, texturing, skies, and the general look of UT3's ability to render beautiful looking maps.

    Crysis is far better than anything the Unreal Engine 3 can even go for. It has graphical features the Unreal 3 engine can't even fake well and the fact that the game looks real while UT3 is entirely scifi themed makes them impossible to compare. Crysis is much better looking. There is nothing in UT3 that you can take and say "OMG THIS LOOKS SO REAL" Everything in UT3 looks good but it doesn't look real. Crysis looks real and what doesn't look real looks amazing.

    UT3 might look just as good Gears of War, but saying it looks better than Crysis is just Denial.

    How'd you get the game to look so colorful and sharp (particularly gateway)?

    I voted, taking in consideration only Crysis. Oh, well, it's always nice seeing these pics.

    There's a Color Control mutator in the Epic forum as far as I know.

    Who ever voted 10 has one of two problems.
    A lower spec PC or bad eyesight.

    LOL. I must remain neutral on the poll. It's not really a fair poll I suppose, considering the atmosphere of the two games. UT3 is fantasy after all...Crysis is more realistic.

    As T2A said, it'd be much better if we had Crysis shots to go by. ;P

    Though in any case, even if UT3 were more powerful than Crysis in the visual department, theres no way in hell it'd be five marks above Crysis... that'd mean it's next-next-next-gen material.

    Also I do see that UT3 is purely fantasy, but Crysis is both. May I remind people of gravity-less motherships,
    monsters the size of an entire aircraft carrier
    and freezing rays etc. Sure most of the landscape is based on realism but there's parts that are not, like the mothership and those look great too.

    Even Halo 3 looks way better than UT3 or GoW to me, maybe it doesn't win in polys but the non-bloomness, art direction, ect are way better.
