Slight Pylon Location Issue

http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/575945

I didn't notice this until this play late in the 2nd quarter, but look at the pylon, it's about a yard into the end zone and a yard out of bounds. I didn't think it mattered really, except the game is programmed apparently to use the pylon as the length of the field, because I snapped the ball out of their end zone later in the game. I uploaded the picture, but I can't figure out where it went exactly...perhaps someone can help me with that too. I saved the play of it, but the replay doesnt start until a good second after the snap, and it's not as definitive that I was snapping with basically the entire ball past the goal line.

The game doesn't exactly use the pylons to determine that, but the pylons are set on the boundaries automatically. The problem is the field is incorrectly placed in the stadium .

At one point in the dev cycle every stadium's field was misplaced. We went through and fixed them all but apparently one fell through the cracks.

Re: Slight Pylon Location Issue

ok, I'm still slightly confused. Here's the photo

http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/photo/575985

The entire ball was across the end zone line although it's been snapped already, but you can still tell, but I'm behind the pylon when the play starts... So are you saying that particular field is too small then? Because the pylons were a yard into the end zone and a yard out of bounds on both sides, not a yard into the end zone on one side and at the 1 yard line on the other side, so if the pylons are located the correct distance from eachother, then Ball State's field is a yard shorter in every direction? thusly, you could be running on the out of bounds line on the sideline, but not get called out of bounds?

No.. the field is the right size, just not positioned correctly. You notice that the ball is almost a yard in the endzone... on the other side of the field, you will be able to score almost a yard before the endzone.

Ugh.. I thought we fixed all these! It gets so frustrating as something like this always seems to slip through because we have so many teams and stadiums in the game.

Re: Slight Pylon Location Issue

So basically the field is just a texture and there are some behind the scenes stuff that tells the game the actual boundaries?

Isn't that common sense? I mean, i'm not a programmer, but how else would they do it...?

Not sure. Just really isn't something you think about it.

Re: Slight Pylon Location Issue

pylons are over-rated.
