Painterly dinosaur skins..
Anyone else think the dinosaur textures look a little.. well.. cartoonish?

Before playing Primal Carnage I thought it'd be the most realistic dinosaur game ever, but having seen (and been) them up close, their skins look like watercolour paintings or something. It's very remniscent of the look Borderlands textures have, except without the black outlines.

They don't look -bad- just seem more stylized than I thought they'd be. Same goes for humans to a much lesser degree. Although I have a sneaking feeling all this might be because they may have a higher quality texture / tesselation option in the final game which isn't present in the cut down beta.

Sorry to dissapoint, but we weren't going for a "realistic" style for our texturing. We wanted something bright, colorful, and cartoony/stylish

Just some of the dinos like the Raptor don't have the scaly pebbled surface I'd have expected when viewing them up close. On the whole, it's a pretty nice look and totally fits with the frantic, almost comically arcadey style Primal Carnage has.

why would the raptor have scales?

Nomegusta feathered raptors i like dinosaurs because the current creatures we have present on earth suck and dinosaurs are so much better. Having feathered raptors is just.... no...... just no.... jurassic park FTW!

What I was stating, is that our current raptor doesnt have, nor need scales,and it's best that it doesn't. :P
