    Default Ships :/

    Ships in the new game (Shogun2) looks graphically less refined than the old game (ETW/NTW). Some people say: 'the first screenshots, so no wonder'. Remember that the first screenshots are always in the best detail to impress the players. Why CA presented such an ugly ship in first screen? Look at the items I pointed out in red. The ship is made from solids inaccurate. The model is very edgy and drawn on the texture, for example, only the green bamboo.
    Compare the screenshots of the Empire shown two years before the released.

    I cannot believe you are actually worrying about how the shipslook right now.

    The ship in the picture looks more like a boat and is much smaller than ETW ships. Maybe the detail will be put in later with textures/bumpmaps. The other screenshots we've seen don't look like they have AA either.

    Wasn't S2 leaked so they had to show it off?

    If they actually planned this though, good. Maybe CA is putting less emphasis on giving the reviewers their purty pictures, and the gamers a great game.

    Units of ETW presented in 2007 didn't differ then those in 2009. Onlys removed the mustache of soldiers. Graphically unchanged.

    The less they pay attention to the graphics, the more time they will have to work on the engine. And the ship looks well, IMHO (although I am not expert on Japanese ships but they are supposed to be very different from the Western style)

    So you should look it from the bright side.

    The image looks more like a mock up than the actual in game graphics.

    Japanese ships. The war ships should be even more spartan than the picture above.

    They probably have different teams working on that, eh?
