they do treat them like separate objects, and they often do hang and flutter realistically in many games.

an object like a scarf might not clip cause it has somewhere to go if it collides with the character.

but a big chestplate or something doesnt, it's told that it cannot bend. The developers overlook the clipping in order to have the character be able to perform actions vital to the gameplay.

But there are more important things to tell the computer to worry about, they dont want to waste it's resources having it figure out exactly how the braid will bounce of their shoulder when there's a bunch of NPCs running around or what have you.

You're kidding right? In almost every game, from MMO's like WOW and Tera, to single player games like TES:V and Dark Souls changing clothes completely changes the base model. Usually it's done at the neck, which is why you have people over in the TES generals in /vg/ always bitching about their waifu's neck seam.

If you were to move the camera into the characters model after donning armor, you wouldn't see a body and some underwear underneath, because the entire model has been changed. Standard practice for most studios to either swap out the models or simply retexture what's already there. Why? because having a model underneath another creates ugly clipping, and increases the number of vertices the machine has to process every single cycle.

Cloth and even chainmail is absurdly hard to model the physics for. Remember most games still use the humble polygon. Every 3d object in a game is made from flat planes held in place like some super-complex papercraft art. The thing they can't do very well is curves- examine a curved surface in any game and you can see its actually several flat planes angled to give the illusion of an object. and every polygon is another thing the programmer has to make and the computer to keep track of.

Things that bend are even worse, since the programmer not only has to model every point of articulation, but every possible position it could bend into, otherwise edges of polygons would stick out or gaps between them would appear.

Why go through all that trouble when you can make something that looks almost as good with a fraction of the time and money?

Oh hey, look what a simple, single youtube search brought up: tutorials for cloth simulation in blender:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cloth+simulation+in+blender

This stuff can run on anything but the oldest of toasters. The capability has been around for a while, it's just not used for anything outside of pre-rendered cut scenes, simply because most gamers would rage about having only 30 fps instead of 60.

Also, while yes, 3D models are constructed out of polygons, your average desktop is more than capable of handling the logarithms that convert a handful of vertices into beautiful curves. Here's another tutorial from the open source, free to download 3D modeling program known as Blender:

http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Modeling/Curves

Now, let me quote the tutorial for a second:

>"The main advantage to using curves instead of polygonal meshes is that curves are defined by less data and so can produce excellent results using less memory and storage space at modeling time. However, this procedural approach to surfaces can increase demands at render time."

So yes, resource demands are increased during rendering (actual game play), but to say that it requires a super computer to do these kind of things is absurd.

3D-modeler in training here.

Yes, cloth simulation exists, but there's a catch here. If you look at any tutorial using these simulations, you'll notice that they use a "bake" or "render", and usually this takes quite some time/the vid capture gets paused.
This is for a good reason: you can't run these simulations at runtime, it would slow down everything to a crawl. If you simulate this in your game engine, considering the amount of characters you have running around in your level, this just fries your CPU. Those calculations are better saved for hit detections that actually matter for the gameplay (swordfighting, blocking, heck, making sure you don't fall through the ground).

But anon, you can bake this, right?
Correct, you can save out these animations and just "paste them" into your game, but that doesn't solve the unrealistic behaviour. If you use baked animations, the cloth will ALWAYS move the same way. If you have a game where you can mix and match armors (like in about every MMO), then you'll quickly get situations where the cloth shouldn't move the way it was baked in. Of course, you could create baked animations for each of these situations and swap them out, but that is VERY time-consuming and overall not worth the effort.

Curves are a promising option, but again, you're not simulating a single object with them. It all scales up ridiculously fast. You also have to keep in mind that when you'd generate your models using curves, you'll also have to generate texture allocations. Not to mention that you'd actually have to regenerate the model after changing the curves every frame if we're talking about soft-body models, since the model obviously has to change. That is why curves are, at the moment, only used for smooth hard surfaces (like cars).

And these anecdotes mean something why? the point is having boob armor is less practical than non boob armor, and that having a female front line combatant as apposed to one of the readily available male combatants is also less practical.

your ideal female inclusive scenario where town is being attacked and the women have to fight does not apply to this situation, as it is about necessity not practicality. furthermore you would be hard pressed to name a significant amount of women (compared to men) capable of front line infantry combat even in today's modern age of mainly ranged conflict.

The only real evidence for the efficacy of female warriors in the past would be from non European cultures, and im not aware of any fammous militaristic ones involving women.

Marginally, really. Unless you come riding into a lance it's no difference. If anything, it increases the stiffness and prevents the armor from caving in under mace strikes.

>readily available male combatants
Implying. A trained woman will be of more use than a male child or old man (meaning too old to fight) and that is about what you will have defending your home once the warriors are away in a tribal community.

Naturally once you have enough people to come up with a standing army, there's little need for this. Specialists will naturally take over in larger communities.

But if you do not have an abundance of men, women can provide fighters as well.
You naturally gamble your reproduction rates but if you have no warriors, well. Reproduction might not be your most immediate problem.

Weak pose?

Looks to me like she's transitioning from plow guard to maybe ox. Also in midstep.

But her feet are right, and that's the sign that she knows what she's doing.

The facial expression....

I get the feeling she's just crossed swords with a dude and he/she was a LOT better than expected, so she's taking a backstep and swapping from low to high guard to force him to counter, so she can see what she's tangling with.

This.

They have armor on the neck and head, outside of both arms, outside of both thighs, and shoulders. In an active fight, you take a LOT of hits to the arms and thighs, but mostly to the outside.

All the exposed skin looks bad, and the 'bendy metal' pose is a bit distracting, but in a hot climate, that would not be...TERRIBLE armor.
