    Do these alternatives have a RCE?
    Game Engine does not equal Game.

    many forget that some players have paid for the right to a better graphic quality, and we have not had such an improvement.
    step of the cryengine 2 which must have revolutionized the ingame graphics , have also asked us a financial effort. of course we had to change the PC to play the game off safe mode for most of us.

    put back the blood as in the very old PE, put impacts, put deterioration armor visible
    add the PE elements that had to be put in place toxic zone, sandstorms, snowstorms etc
    it's just part of PE's oldest faq, the old video presentation showed a virtual world.
    now the presentation tells you: become rich or not

    I'd answer yes and I'd play it in the old graphics, but not 2D.
    1. I NEVER post off-topic.
    2. If you disagree, go to 1.

    not really that important to me. I play in safe mode for everything expect avatar quality (i like to see what i'm wearing).

    For me something which runs on older hardware is far more important. Having amazing graphics only prevents casual PC users from participating in the universe.

    I would probably continue to play if they for some reason made the graphics look like 2003 again, but i doubt i would start playing if i found the game today with those graphics

    For me, as a RL video game developer, I of course take a exactly look to the grafic in every game i play.
    EU got a lot improvement into grafic, since the old engine version.
    But what i realy miss, is the quality how it get placed or how good LOD (Level of Detail) collision and all this is working. There are a lot objects/models, into the game, how have bad collision setup, or a bad working LOD, so you see the collision box, instead of the LOD step mesh. Especial since last update. There are also bad placed objects all around, and give me the feeling that some objects got placed in a rush, and don't got tested how they realy are placed right, and look good.

    There are also a lot objects/meshes from old engine, with low polygons, and give a look like it was in 2000. Since we all have much faster PC's, this could be improved too.

    Basicaly, EU looks not bad, and there are some realy very nice looking places!

    EU have pretty good graphics. Character animation need to be improved. Compared to other MMO's animation is way outdated.

    edit: voted #2
    im fine with EU graphics as far it's bugged free

    For me the gfx is an secondary aspect, so I voted good as it is, but would also stay with EU with old gfx pre VU10.

    To see improvements is nice, but if I need a new mashine as it was with the VU10 (Cryengine update) it sucks a little.

    Anyways, tech improves, so gfx improves, to be honest a good gfx can attract new players, but thats not all.

    GFX can be awesome, but if gamemechanics suck, players will not stay!

    Compared with other MMO, here an example of a swampy place of a game i helped as developer.

    Many of us were playing back when it was Project Entropia and the graphics were very clunky.
    It was released in 2003. All games looked very clunky back then. Sure, in more recent years there has been a revival of sidescrollers, games with MIDI music, etc. But I still don't think it makes sense to make this argument given how different things are today than they were 15 (!) years ago.

    I voted the second option.

    Visually I think it looks fine, but it's still not great in terms of optimization (running on lower-end hardware). And certain areas are still very buggy where players can get stuck or fall through the floor. To me, that is more important than how the game looks.
