Graphic updates.... am I seeing correctly?

    OK guys.. is it my imagination or did we get some graphic updates?

    First, last night, I noticed the pot on the silver sapling was fixed.. that's obvious.

    Then, this morning, I noticed that my house sign (when you double click) is brand new.

    So I'm walking around trying to pay closer attention.. some of the roof tiles are looking extremely cleaned up to me.. and I'm thinking some of the trees look different too..

    Please tell me I'm not imagining all this!

    I just checked a house sign.. Nope... you are correct, it looks all professional and stuff. Wonder what else they upgraded?

    That definitely looks bigger and fancier than before. Much sharper. Perhaps someone should check out InsideUO?

    i noticed last night that (in 2D at least) when my female elf is wearing her Armor of Fortune, it actually pinches in at the waist for a much more feminine look. No more boxy AoF on female warriors yay!!!

    The boobs on my character's paperdoll look bigger. And her panties are now a lacy thong. WTF?

    Um, which client would this be? I would like to log in and check, just for myself, you know, to be certain, right away.

    *HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!
    Well, he asked and apparently I was the only one that answered. Enjoy!
    I think we'd have to clean the zoom up a lot more before we could call it a thong, but it does seem to have a french cut to it now anyway. :)*

    Seriously guys, all the complaining we've done about some of the graphics, and looks like they're sneaking things in.. seems like an early christmas to me!

    Don't say that, you'll give some people on here anuerysms trying to mentally deal with the "I like it... but... MUST HATE KR!!!!" going through their heads if they know this.
     
  14. Would be funny if this new artwork did come from KR...and all the 2der's love it. Haven't seen any other screenies of the new stuff but i'm sure the house sign is from KR. Just like the crimson dragon looks exactly like the ancient wyrm's from KR too.

    Yes, it would be hysterical, given that the house sign still looks and feels like the original house sign from the 2D client. THAT is all the 2D players have ever asked: Don't sacrifice the look and feel of 2D just to implement new graphics. It can still look the same without being low-res.

    Can you please explain the expression "look and feel"? I think I know look, but I don't know how pictures are to feel. It can't be touch on a screen. Do you mean like emotion? If so, which?

    Thanks.

    There had to be something more than turkeys to explain the enormous size of that patch. I wonder what else got changed.

    It's just a common expression for the overall design and implementation. :)

    Hmmmm, It would appear that that color of male undergarments is influenced by skin color? Maybe this was always the case.

    If we are getting refinements for the femme doll, maybe a whole new look for the male is underway and under wraps? *arches eyebrow*

    Darlin' if they put a thong on my avatar the game is gonna have to take on a minimum of mature rating again, that or the no draw tile will need to be placed strategically.

    *winks*

    All that aside, we do keep fighting the good fight. Right or wrong doesn't really matter at this point.

    Hmmm, maybe a codpiece?

    Ankh pendants are now massive when worn in 2d. I look like Mr.T with this much gold swinging around my neck.

    It's probably been my imagination, and poor memory, but in 2d I've been noticing occasional things for months and thinking 'hang on, that's slightly different'...

    It's an expression. And yes, it is something akin to the "emotional/memory" state triggered by looking at something. As in "it just feels right" or "something feels wrong." So the "look" is the direct "look" of the graphics while the "feel" is that combined package that makes them "feel" like you're playing the same game.

    I am not holding my breath...

    But I'll say this... If they do fix this monstrosity sometime before the end of the game... and make it "decent" to look at and by some miracle make it so I don't want to puke everytime I look at my characters paperdoll I'll be excited. I certainly hope they do away with that hideous looking underwear too... *blech*.....
