Subject: On the importance of procedural content


Hey folks,

I think I'm still on this list - I ran across a short piece on gamasutra where the technical director for Far Cry 2 talks about the importance of procedural content in games today. Nothing technical, but it is kind of interesting to get his perspective and importantly the difficulty of creating good tools that integrate with their existing pipeline well.

Regards,
