What do you notice about this image?

The correct answer is "the distance from the treeline to the wall is ten paces".

Why is this significant?

This is supposed to be a fortified city aligned with Florence.

It's fortified out of necessity.

Renaissance Italy was a time of almost constant warfare between city-states and their respective hegemonies.

This city would be required to defend itself.

The trees would provide cover to attacking armies--up to TEN PACES FROM THE WALL.

These trees shouldn't be there. They wouldn't be there.

The garrison commander would have conscripted civilian labor and pushed that treeline back a good half mile or so.

If you want people to feel immersed in Renaissance Italy, you need to not make stupid mistakes like this.

u're right. the garrison commander would've definitely preferred an unhindered line of sight for atleast a mile in every direction.

It can get worse ive fallen through many walls i thought were walls then disappear maybe the draw distance is being stupid

At one point i was stabbed or shot by something i never found on top of a clock tower

my horse ran through the castle walls...

And well the time in this game is messed up like when you go from scene to scene its like from 1400 to 150909 years later and your the exact same no age lines(wrinkles) no stamina loss no disease very unimmersing

Did you ever watch Quantum Leap?

When he's being Ezio (or Altiar), he appears as himself, as Desmond, and not as Ezio. Note at the start of each game, when the characters conveniently receives scars through their mouths.

The same way Scott Bacula always appeared as himself and with his own abilities, and not as the pregnant nun or the aged old man or the toddler with a lisp.

Yeah that too was something to think about. But, in the final stages of the game Ezio grows a bit of a stubble.

yeah i loved the thick stubble he had didn't look right (realistic) but it looked right for the character as a whole kind of like the freeman

Right so this thread inspired me to play a bit of it again i started off just jumping to some high up buildings what i didn't notice was the agile guard following me to the top of this tower i thought oh ill just stab him when i get to the top when i got to the top,

he was already there flaying about like a rag doll on spore, and I'm serious he was going the championship
of the silly dance so i stabbed him in the face..... ,

that didnt last long beacuse he fell down screaming hit the floor and proceeded to climb the tower again i was like OMG, Terminator NPC he was still flaying about as he was climbing, he was still coming after me after i killed him 5 times already now what i did next made me fall off my chair laughing,

i stabbed him with the poison blade, well he was off my back but now he was taking on the civilians and the guards flaying about with his dagger no one could get close, I'm still laughing now
