    I had a bunch of freshly picked roses (valentines 2010 gift) on my vendor and now they look different, upside down and more of a bloom.

    I take it this was meant to be?

    Yikes. The new ones dont look good at all to me ... i mean the old ones weren't anything to write home about, but these are worse imo.

    On the bright side, the essences look better (even though they are flat hued) in the CC now ...

    I wonder why they changed the essences in the first place. Nice, they look like cotton candy now, hehe. Well, I like that better than the weird white-out in center. Now I don't even remember what they looked like before the white-out change.

    I have yet to look at essences.... maybe I should....

    However I somewhat like the way the freshly picked roses look now...

    Maybe that's just me but hey it actually LOOKS like a rose now... Not a tulip or something.. before i kept thinking this looks more like a tulip or morning glory than a ROSE....

    But I guess maybe that's just me.

    My goodness, the new graphic is awful! You can't even tell it's a rose. I just checked my flaming buds. What a travesty! If I'd known that they were going to destroy the graphic, I wouldn't have gone to the trouble of buying them at the rares fest.

    They actually spent time on this when there is so much to be fixed. I can't believe that we are paying them money to ruin the graphics. As a rose lover, I am appalled.

    If they need to figure out how a rose really looks, perhaps they should visit David Austin's rose nursery in Texas, or the nursery in Texas that sells heirloom roses.

    Well… I have to say: “Great job… screwing things up, yet again!”

    Honestly, I wonder if the staff has any direction/management/leadership… this was clearly something that needed no improvement. Or was this just an honest mistake?

    At the start of this year, a good friend of mine passed away… and it took a lot of trouble and fuss to collect 7 bright white roses for his memorial, that the Atlantic EM was so very kind of help me build. Now the roses look like dingy gray cabbages. It ruins the whole design and I need to find out if this will be fixed or will it be redesigned.

    If it isn’t broke… why not test before you update?

    I think they looked like this, like they do now. And they seem to animate a pulse of light? on the floor now. Not sure.

    Don't know when they made this change, but I noticed earlier this week that the graphic for sand my miner dug up had changed. It's a smaller rectangular patch and a bit darker in color than it used to be. Have not checked to see if the "treasure sand" associated with Naxatilor and his accompanying spawn also changed its look too.

    rose must have come from here:
    Red Rose on a stem - Just our Pictures of Roses

    /agreed essences suk,
    These must be examples of the New hi-rez graphics, exc. these are the low-rez versions
    Can't think of any other reason why they would be touching the artwork.

    It's also Fri the 13th, maybe it's just a joke?

    Sand does seem to be using the saltpeter graphic now.


    And the change to the rose surprised me, but I like the new one. The old one barely even looked like a rose.

    Essence is the same, the hueing on it was just fixed.. it's been broken for a good while now.

    I think they began with the pulse of light. I keep them in a bag so I don't know if the pulse changed over the months.

    these changes I think were not intended supreem made a coment in another thread stating that some of the other graphic changes were not intended so I am thinking these were not either

    that part is correct


    as to the rest I'm not sure if it had changed prior to the latest patch either

    That was to do with the hue error. Making new graphics accidently just confuses me. :coco:
     
  20. The essence change is okay.. they looked weird after they lost the lil blinking thing they did.

    Besides, the essence doesnt get seen after its used anyway so its all good :)

    The rose changed once before. This time I had one on a shelf made of benches and metal boxes. The rose change messed up the shelf and it could not be raised as high as the second version that my rose had until last patch:confused:

    Please--don't say this--if these are high rez graphics then I want the lo rez graphics back. Granted the old rose graphic wasn't great, but it was better.

    A lot of the imbuing materials had animations in beta. ANd yes that was what I meant. I noticed the animation and thought they had returned to their former state.

    I wonder what other graphics might have changed that we are yet to discover...

    I'd really hate to find out that someone in the development team actually spent time making a new design for the roses, although I can't see how it would be any other way. With so many things that need fixing, tweaking, and all around improving upon, why would they spend any amount of time on something like re-working the graphic on that rose?

    If these are hi-res graphics, Grimm needs fired.

    Not thrilled with the changes to the graphics, and now my vendors have fallen below the Arcane circle! (EC). Haven't been able to get into the classic today, so I'm doing the wipe/reload repatch thing!
