the only thing I dislike about the light and etc is the bloom. it may make sense in the morning. because of the sun. but, how can we have bloom in the NIGHT? (if my memory helps anyways)
In saying that I agree it could've used with some more kinds. Planes is a tough one to me. I wouldn't have minded some seaplanes or a small plane like the dodo, but no passenger planes like a Boeing 747 or a fighter jet.
The map isn't designed to accommodate such air transportation IMO.
next time someone complains why we only have copters in IV, I'll use this post.
(also, IV's map is way too small to have fast planes. heck. when I take off in my Annihilator, I find myself already reached the place I want )
