Exclamation G.R.O.W.L - Get Rid Of White Ledges!


* The tint of the G.R.O.W.L text is the actual tint of the white ledges. Think of it... The ledges are even this bright in the NIGHT hub...


So... sadly here we are again. After all the GROWL threads we've had, somehow Crystal Dynamic still decided to bring white ledges and also white interactive objects back into this game.

Why are they there? This is the only reason I can think of:
- guidance for gamers that are having a hard time finding their way.

Now here are the reasons why the white ledges should NOT be in the game:
- The game is 18+, so the guidance really isn't needed.
- Even when some guidance is needed, we always have Survival Instinct, which is a help function right? Isn't one help function enough?
- It looks weird and unrealistic.
- It breaks the atmosphere and believability of the environments.

CD, I really hope you listen to the fans in this matter. I played the demo and I thought the game was amazing, but this particular thing just really bothers me, and it's something that's so easy to fix. Just a matter of textures. There's still three monts of production left. And this is a mistake that really needs fixing.

Here are some great suggestions for changing/altering/removing the white ledges in the previous thread by Weemanply109:

And here two more examples of these white hints:

(one of the worst imo. It's completely white!) The hanging crates:



The climbable walls (not very bad, but still brighter then the other rock walls)



Who's with me?

Get rid of this pointless thread tbh. It's too late in development.

This.
CD also said that the only time the ledges are white is when it makes sense for them to be.
I like how people spot ONE section with a stone ledge and they get all shook up...

I'm sure that if you would WANT to change it, they can.
For example, Tomb Raider Anniversary just used ONE texture that made the ledges white, with one simple texture replacement this was fixed by me. Now I really believe it's a matter of more textures this time around, but even still.

I really think CD should consider it.

Coount me in!

As a method of learning and guidance is good, but during the whole game is terrible.

What a terrible Deja Vu!

This, you people act like white ledges are EVERYWHERE but they're not, stop making a big deal.
