Hurray for good Art Direction!!


These are screen shots from The World of Warcraft (aka WoW crack) that I took with my main character (Bishopobrian lvl 60 shadow priest). The artists at Blizzard had an extremely difficult task. They had to create a world whose enviroment would change as real life time changed. What amazes me is that the colors are really correct. At night everything is blueish. In sunset (as pictured about) you get clouds with bright orange in them. They have even recently implemented a weather system that brings rain/snow/fog. Anyhow, it's interesting to see how complex digital worlds are getting. Cool stuff.

I'm wondering when they will make a model of the world and introduce virtual tourism.

They do already. It's called google.earth. I can't wait to get high-speed internet!
