Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

Ok, we've already seen the screenshots of AOE3 and we know its going to have amazing graphics. But just how amazing will it be. Apparently the Ensemble chaps were showing at GDC, and heres gamespys recap of what AOE3 will have.


" If a musketeer is hit by an enemy musketball, and your 3D card is powerful enough to do it, his torso will deform as he's running so you can actually see the bullet impact. His hat and backpack and musket are also separate models attached to him that can move around on their own. So, when he's blown off a cliff -- and he will be, often, if I have anything to say about it -- his hat flies off and his musket goes whirling away "

and the even have the Havoc engine

"Ensemble Studios licensed the Havok physics engine. The art team cut each building up into logical pieces of debris. Then, when a structure gets slammed by a cannonball, chunks of it part way (leaving ruined holes and broken slats underneath) and fly through the air. No two explosions are the same. "
