Remember these early screenshots, some even in hi-res?

That location is even featured in the Trespasser MPEG video...

I'm still wondering where it may be from. Some version of Pine Valley? Of Ascent? A custom level like the one for the "VIEW" building?

New homework for you, people... :wink:

I'm gonna say some early small test level like the "view" building one, as you can see where the terrain ends.

In some ways these remind me of the gorge in Ascent 2, maybe there's a connection.

I thought those were Pine Valley shots?

I've tried to find a matching location both in PV and in AS, with no luck. If you do, let us know...

I agree with tatu, it seems these are just small areas of terrain that were never really full levels. Been wondering about these for a long time, too. It's also worth noting that none of the objects seen in these images are present anywhere in the game, in any version. The only recognizable thing is the ground textures. The terrain also looks much better detailed than it ever does in Tres, so that adds to my conclusion that these are just early 3DS Max renders in a level that never was in the game. Personally, the ravine running through the center of the map reminds me a lot of IJ1, particularly the area where the streambed gets a lot deeper just before the Spielburg falling jeep easter egg.

Yeah, this certainly is the game for me.

There's actually a few blank heightmaps for other levels in addition to the ones with actual data. Perhaps it was one of those test levels. You know who might remember? Seamus Blackley.

Personally... I think those images go with the Tres dev's frequent use of PV content, for promotional purposes.

Yeah, but they had to make the terrain to take the screenshots, (even in 3DS Max) this same area also appears in the pre-rendered trailer breifly.
