      The colours are really unbalanced you get a light which is extremely bright and colourful then the rest of the map is horribly dark.

      I think because epic was making gears of war their eyes kind of got adjusted to the darkness and to them Ut3 is extremely colourful.

        ART STYLE. Not everything needs to look like a gay pride parade to be legitimate, jeeze.

          You keep clinging to that raft.

            I love blatant extremes. I went B&W, while you chose gay pride parade.

            However, when I look out the window in the summer, the sky is blue and the grass is green. Everything is vivid and visually enticing.

            You won't however find me hanging out the window screaming, "OH WTF GOD!?!?! GAY PRIDE PARADE AGAIN!??!!!!"

            I don't see anything very artistic about using Brown for every pallet on every map. I like some of the brown maps, but not for every map.

              Whatever, clearly you are all art majors and Epic doesn't know what they are doing. It must have been insanely difficult to switch a colour on the program they use; hence why they only left it on brown, and black.

                I doubt in a war things are going to be particularly idealistic, bright and colourful.
                Realism? look around you. I guarantee the real world is colorful.

                War? It's not a war, it's just some standard DM arenas that Epic dressed up like a war shooter... but it looks bland no matter what. Call of Duty (a real war game) has more colors than UT3 does, and that's sad.

                  Actually, whats funny is I'm a very successful graphic designer and I work all day with compositions of Pantone colors. My job requires me to have extensive knowledge of what looks perfect on screen, in print and in the real world. So unfortunately for you, I just might know what I'm talking about.

                    Why is it such a problem that they wanted to make it look more industrial?

                      Graphic designer eh? What milk advertisement cover you working on? Don't try to impress me with a degree that takes 2 years to get after you've learned how you use one specific program. It doesn't mean you know anything about art history or artistic styles in general, it just means you are in a field thats somewhat creative.

                        UT3 running max candy no bloom/gloom bs and it looks 100% better you will need to tweak the ini to get this look

                          If you take out the weapon and ammo pickups and the neon signs, all that's left is drab browns and grays.

                          Observe the difference in color contrast...

                          Concept art

                          vCTF-Corruption
                          Concept art
                          Screenshot

                          The concept art is neither cartoony nor unrealistic. The game is simply bland. The problem is Epic not sticking to their brilliant concept art. The maps were craftily built, but the textures lack color. To make things worse, someone then applied fog, blur, bloom and other post-processing tricks to further dim what color remained.

                          Note that these screenshots were made to show the game from its best side. I didn't make these myself.

                            hahahaha! Actually I have a masters degree which took 6 years. And if you think 1 program is what it takes to get that, you're mistaken. In fact, several of the classes I had to take were art history, historical art styles and color theory; But hey never mind. You must feel very threatened by me to lash out like that, so I'll leave it alone.

                            My point is that there's lots of ways to make things look industrial without it having radical fluctuations from highlights that are WAY too bright to shadows that are WAY too dark and medium tones that are completely bland. But anyway, tons of people have already hit the nail on the head with their responses.

                            I was just amused when you stated that everyone must have no clue what they're talking about because they didn't have an art degree. Then when someone had an art degree, you decided to place me in the milk advertisement cover industry.

                            You've decided that you'll be the poster boy for UT and you believe that you're 100% right on this topic. However, that doesn't make you right. Look at all the hundreds if not thousands of people who want the colors changed.

                            And then there's you by yourself on your soap box... but maybe I'm wrong.

                            Oh well, bell's ringing in the Old Milk advertisement factory. Gotta get back to work.

                            **Btw, the post above me shows very clearly what the problem is... not that you'll take time to look at it or anything.

                              Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I just disagree with you plain and simple. And I don't need a Masters degree to say that the game indeed has color and great color at that. I gave specific examples and levels and I used my eyes which have not failed me up to now. I just think it is fine to disagree on this topic ... you obviously feel pretty strongly about your POV as do I mine. Anyway the sky is blue on many of the maps in this game ... I don't how anyone could miss that. Oh well no skin off my nose since I am really enjoying the game and in the end that is all that matters for me since I had to use my money to purchase it. I don't like buying games I end up not playing because they bore me *cough* HL2:Ep2 *cough* and no UT has ever been guilty of that.

                                What you've said makes sense and I don't think you're wrong per say. Yes there is some examples of color but at least from my perspective, most of the maps are bland. And I don't feel THAT strongly on the topic. I just don't like how EffeKt talks to people. I do respect your opinion though.
