Maybe it's one of those silly glow-in-the-dark sticks that you see in outdoor concerts.

it's not too bad, but the lack of polygons really hurts!

Wow! That looks awesome... I've been waiting to see creatures roaming in their castles for a long long time...
Where is it from? the new TotE demo? a mod? I'll be very dissapointed if thats just a photoshop trick...

I don't think this is from a castle. I looks like the camera is just positioned in a certain manner to catch the vampire, some scenery and the Necro City in the background.

This is not a photoshop trick. I have been using the Map Editor to create and frame some cool shots of different factions in their native environments. The Editor is much more flexible in the camera angles it allows, and one can create more interesting setups, unbound by considerations about how the arrangement affects gameplay. I think it would be cool if Celestial Heavens sponsored a small competition of screenshots created this way. An image competition would probably draw out some really interesting screenshots.

Very atmospheric, I like these kind of pics :)
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

The only complaint is that he used low graphic settings.. for screenshot purposes you should always max it out as choppyness doesn't matter.
Infiltrator out.

I have my computer res set to 1280x1024, the highest res. The Map Editor itself does not have a graphics quality adjustment. Nonetheless, the image does look much more crisp in the Editor than in the screenshot. If you have another solution for a crisper screenshot, let me know.

I was just about to comment on the same thing. Art isn't as beautiful with low graphics settings.

But still it's great work :tsup:

one of the problems with 3D is that it looks much better in motion then in screenshots...
