square is the "ground" level.
octagon is the water level.
square is inside the invisible barrier.
pictures below show the mapping process... look VERY carefully for the
players stands under the hog. The other player grabs some plasma grenades, the
other hog, and heads for the water...
player needs to push himself through the invisible barrier.
do this, he must make a little space between the hog and the invisible wall.
Then he should toss a plasma grenade on the back of the hog and use the
explosion to push the hog. The hog will push the player through the
of the distance from the invisible barrier corner to the beach.
the amt. of time it takes to get from the invisible barrier to the edge of the
water... from the barrier corner. Looking up helps with the frame rate.
7min 30 seconds
barrier corner seems to be in line with the water corner.
shows up even without water...
up... in line with the corner and the island...
2 min 45 seconds
corner also seems to be in line, but more of a 90 degree angle.
outer corner from beach: 004Km
water corner to beach: 003Km
water crosses over the outer border!
along.... looking back...
A water corner beyond
the outer border.
follows is walking along the edge of the outer border... look at the second
player screen to gain some perspective and try to spot the green arrow.
Remember the player's camera distorts lines near its edges.
in the direction of where I began.
the approx. distance from beach to beach on the island. I think that says
counting the number of corners in the invisible barrier.
there you have it. I count four invisible barrier corners, four outer
barrier corners, and eight water corners. All of the corners appear to be in
line with each other. My approximate guess for the size of the map, from outer
corner to outer corner is 8 to 9Km.
"thanks" to xbill (specifically for this trick discussion) and the
HBO forum for info on the barrier shape.
