    It Matters a Hell of a lot to me.
    I run Dual GTX 960s SLI on a 21" Multisync FE2111sb.
    I had to go back a year or two to get new Video Cards with DVI-I outputs.
    That was not cheap!
    I run 1600x1200 @ 85mhz.
    IMO nothing looks better than 4:3 Aspect ratio under flat glass.

    My processor is only a Quad Core on an Asus digital home MBD.
    My internet is slow @ 2.7MBs per sec DSL.
    Enough to keep up most of the time.
    The game looks great as it is.
    I can for sure enjoy an upgrade, and I'm sure it will help grease up my wallet.
    Comparing games is not what it's about with me.
    A 69 Buick is not a 69 Chevy.
    Please don't turn the game into a cheap azz Chevy
    I'm worried how much this change will effect the look and feel of the game.
    There are some really beautiful environments out in Calypso.
    This game is a gem among games.

    Hoping for the BEST!!

    It's the Laptop crowd that's destroying whats left of good graphics.
    Their platform sucks so why do they care about graphics?
    After the industry adopted 1080-p, monitors went to the dogs.
    Eventually I will be forced off my screen, and Ill have to fork out some big bucks for an Apple Monitor.
    I really don't want to change.

    I had to vote for serious Improvement even though I think the graphics are great already.
    There are lots of things that can be better.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see once its released but lookin at the picture from PA,
    a lot of details will look way better.

    visual is one thing. identity is otherthing. i find the game very nice to see. but i still feeling the old environnement more rich. hadeisheim town, umbranoid camp, specific landscape and place. fog and sound was here.
    they make great job on some place. i wish they make the same everywhere.

    The last graphics upgrade knocked me out of the game for 2 years, hopefully this won't be the same. I think graphics are not important, highly intensive games block casual gamers from joining.

    I like the game as is. I do think wind blowing, butterflies etc. are a waste of clock ticks to show them. There a few others but none of these thing are that bad just a small waste of resources IMO.

    BTW to the comment of not much with graphics in 2003 obviously he never played Battlefield 1943. IMO that was about the start of what we see today graphics wise in games.

    Poor grafic of my game But it use heavy resources, about it is made with 4k textures. Maybe too heavy for a MMO. Ok, just a simply example, how average grafic looks on games today.

    For me as a miner in EU, i like to have nice grafic. Mining is boring enough, so watching to nice landscape is a plus for me.

    To me the polygon count and higher res textures don't matter that much in EU, I do however want more interactivity with objects within the game.

    I like both, better grafic and more interactivity with objects. With better grafic i also mean all the bad placed objects, like waterfalls into air, rocks don't fit the floor, trees where you see the collision mesh and with bad LOD, etc. Plants where you get stuck, only if you touch it. Or waterboarders, where you get stuck.

    But yes, more interactivity with objects is much welcome too!

    Entropias decade old CryEngine2 graphics updated or not will still seem a waste of my $300 RX590 graphics card

    MA wasting their time really

    How about a new engine to take us into the next decade instead of then being 2 decades behind

    How much are graphics factored in to your reason for playing this game?

    MA is all about wanting to update the UI and improve textures...etc but really, how many of us actually care about these improvements? Many of us were playing back when it was Project Entropia and the graphics were very clunky. Arguably I think many wouldn't care if it went back to that style of graphics if the gameplay was improved.

    So I'm wondering where do you put graphics on the list of priorities and how much of a factor is/was it for you to start and continue playing Entropia?

    1. Would you still play the game if they went back to the old graphics (assuming gameplay was the same as it is now even if not capable in the old engine)? If not, what if gameplay was improved as a trade off to worse graphics?

    2. What if EU was no longer even 3D and was a top down 2D style but with decent artwork? Do you think you would have still joined/continue to play?

    Personally my #1 reason for joining was based on the notion of being able to make real money. The notion of a 3D environment was just a perk for me. For me, if you took the same gameplay and put it on a completely different visual experience like 2D pixel art I'd still play as much as I do now.
    Yes and yes. That said, I did enjoy the pre-vu10 graphics more than I would have enjoyed 2D.
    I place graphics updates near the bottom in terms of priority except to decrease glitches and lag and improve functioning of the game's other systems. In particular, I place the half-mob glitch at the very top, and fixing clipping would be a fine improvement as well (no more getting stuck in a table!)
    This whole emphasis on more and bigger graphics seems to me mainly like a bid to preemptively outdo potential future improvements to Second Life and monopolize its playerbase in additions to EU's - a bid made in a style all too common in recent real-world politics.
    .... just one man's opinion
