    I think it was more of a view to show off how the character models look now.

    Definitely while driving and quite likely an option the rest of the time.

    The reason third-person view was taken out originally was because the player animations weren't good enough but with the animation overhaul that's happened this is no longer an issue. Hopefully there will be a setting to force first-person for pvp servers, I don't play pvp myself but that doesn't mean the needs of pvp players should be ignored. I can see how the ability to see over a ridge-line without sticking your head over would be a huge advantage for an ambushing player.

    Removing the third-person view annoyed a lot of people and it seems that adding it back will annoy some more, the only constant in life is change.

    Well I don't bother, as I love current view, plus it make it harder to control for me in 3rd person view. However all the model they do for animation is when you see your friend in action in game.

    Cool, a tree.

    May I ask, why not posting Material from the Devs in the Dev Diary of A17 ?
    I dont use Twitter and dont want to look up 20 Sources to be up to date with the news :/
    Looking at the comments on that feed, it seems like that's where most of his positive feedback comes from.

    He did, but you have to know math to figure it out. He's tricky like that.

    I've never played Fortnite, but I was watching a friend play it on Twitch the other day. Definitely PVP and definitely 3rd person view. But I guess if everyone is using 3rd person view, then it doesn't really give any advantage or disadvantage.

    this game meant to be first person, it doesnt need third person view, it breaks immersion of the game.

    One disadvantage of floats in 7d2d: On linux the RWG generates similar but not identical worlds to windows, I assume because of rounding in the random generator.

Combine that with the nightmare of trying to convert a double to within the range of a float and fixed-point looks better by the second.

    Since unity has largely dropped support for 32 bit systems there's no logical reason not to use 64 bit in the engine except for the amount of work involved in bringing the engine up to date.

    I can agree to disagree, such things are often a matter of taste and suitability to the job at hand.

    Then just use a rectangular collider and save yourself the extra work :-)
    The idea was to avoid using colliders due to their cost.
