Re: Predator vision!

In Predator, when the creature took off his helmet, he was almost blind. He was just able to pick out Dutch from the background. Yet in Predator 2, when the creature took off his helmet he could see just fine, why? Did the first one just have bad eyesight, did the second one have contacts or was it just a mistake?

Talking Well...

Remeber that the Yautja in the first one was older so you know his eyesight gets worse as he gets older. And in the PREDATOR 2 book it says that the Yautja there was on one of his first expiditions otherwise its a BIG continuity f**k up!

hehe, old age

yeh the first pred was pretty old but unlike humans preds have a large array of visions. preds have different visions from each other (normal vision no help with masks or 'contact' hehe.) so it isnt suprising when the first pred cant see arnie (mainly because of the mud) and plus the 2nd one knew that something was there so looked more carefully.

HERE! - -> Yeh although the first pred was just a warrior the Yautja hunting party in PRED 2 was a better tribe.

Oh!

And in the PREDATOR 2 book it says how the PREDATOR that was killed by Arnie was of a different superior tribe and breed of Yautja. So that my solve it!

Re: Predator vision!

the first movie was in a jungle, with lots of heat and humidity. the second movie was in the city, where its not as hot.

they see infrared, so in the jungle, thats ALOT to see.

Re: Predator vision!

electromagnetic doesnt quite answer it... we all see electromagnetic radiation. visible light is just a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum. radio waves, infra-red, ultraviolet light, x-rays and gamma rays are all part of that saee spectrum. maybe the predators can see a whole different area of the spectrum than our eyes can detect.

Re: Predator vision!

these are all of the vision modes.


Normal View

This view-mode allows you to see the way a Colonial Marine does; horrendous night-vision and doesn't target a specific race at all. Basically worthless. However, I have found one use for it; turning off the Shoulder Cannon's automatic-tracking-system. As you should know, the Shoulder Cannon's ATS (automatic-tracking-system) isn't perfect, and an experienced player would be much better without it; aiming on his own.



Thermal View

This view-mode should be used if you want to specifically target Colonial Marines.



Electromagnetic Spectrum View

This view mode should be used when you want to specifically target Aliens. When turned on, it will enhance your night-vision greatly.



PredTech View

This view mode should be used when you want to specifically target enemy Predators. A great feature of PredTech view is that it will also highlight Colonial Marine and Predator equipment in the same way it does to enemy Predators - this feature is especially useful when you're looking to destroy a Colonial Marine's equipment. It is also useful if you're looking for a missing Disc.

Re: Predator vision!

In the real stuff i think electromagnetic cannot detect alien,because it is a living creature,not something that used battery or electric to made it move.Consider to the avp movie they had other green vision that can detect alien.

Usually, an 'Alien' works like a battery-based machine - Their blood is much alike the acid from a car battery and their 'biomechanoid' body carries and uses electricity (remember electric eels?). This is why they have no need for hot-blood (remember that 'they don't show-up on InfraRed at all'?). The Predators' 'electrovisions' can identify the electricity stored in the Aliens and maybe there are diferent kinds of 'electrovisions', just like there are Man-made 1st and 2nd generation thermal sights...
I seemed to agree with that,but electric eel do got acid blood?i think battery and eel had different kind of source from that point of view.

Re: Predator vision!

well not human has 20 02 vision some people are near sided others are fan sided and it would be safe to assume that the preds have the same thing.
