No info at the moment. I'm personally expecting something this month/July.

What's the difference between HPL1 and HPL2 that makes outside environments difficult exactly? Penumbra had two very nice outside sections (and Requiem had plenty). I mean, snowy landscapes are obviously easier to design than say a field with dense foliage but the engine should technically be able to handle it, right? I think the most work would go into designing outdoor lighting and shading but it is basically the same thing isn't it?

I think we may have to wait until HPL 3 releases, to see some greater outdoor environments. Some time ago they uploaded a video with grass animations for the new engine.

I think you can just have 'rooms' that look like outdoor sections. The area where you can put stuff is limited to the size of a single map and doesn't really support a good way to make (unaccessible) landscapes.

RE: [www.nextfrictionalgame.com] Amnesia Discussion

The way I created large and detailed environments in Half-Life² Source engine is basically create them as big interior rooms. Use tall enough building so backdrops can be made simple or made redundant. And when I do have a larger backdrop you can make it fairly simple with low poly models and alpha channeled planes. HPL2 also occludes anything that is behind a static object. So you can have pretty large outdoor areas if you design them right. It's a matter of having most assets outside as static objects and also using other ways to boost performance such as simple collisions and clustering (or combining the same objects as HPL2 does it in the mapview.exe). There are of course limits to having large outdoor areas and the necessary challenges come with it when doing them within HPL2, but it's not impossible if you know how to work around them.
