In a earlier Dev Diary, a developer mentioned the technology used for sand footprints and dust particles to dynamically react when they occur in the world which you can notice a lot in the desert as it always happens. The following video here if you watch from 1:27 to 1:56 you will see Fredrick Richardson (Chief Technical Officer) explaining how this can be used to also create water simulation and snow.
So does that mean the snow in the North is made differently compared to the sandy areas in the south?
My question is how come we have never come across leaving our footprints in the snow even though the technology to implement this already exists? Will this be something you will have implemented by post or pre-launch or never?
