    i think new sheep look a little out of place when you put them next to the art for other farm type animals.
    i think its the fact that the sheep actually have highlights and deep shadows whereas none of the old art actually have that sort of thing.

    Also new sheep are bigger than goats.
     
  7. Love them! Quick question, are you seeing them in 2D?

    I guess this is the EC graphic updates. Mission Accomplished.

    :danceb::danceb::cheerleader::cheerleader::danceb::danceb:

    We're really going to freak out about sheep graphics? Maybe it's just me but like them or don't like them it doesn't really affect much in our viewing pleasure or game mechanics. Well, unless you live next to a sheep farm and see them every day upon logging in?

    Really?

    The point is that apparently EC graphics are being slipped into the old 3D client. There is a reason some people prefer the classic client. Blurring is one of them and the sheep are blurry compared to the rest of the animals. It just looks out of place.

    Ugly, horrible and oversized. Nearly as big as a cow. Why do people have to 'fix' things that aren't broke?

    They do look more like sheep.
    The grass doesn't look a whole lot like grass, though. Looks more like seaweed.

    Agreed, looks like the sheep have been edited in afterwards. Was another picture in another thread where you can see white pixels around their outline so they really look out of place. Classic client is just that we don't want EC/KR graphics coming into Classic client.

    While i aplaud any help we get in reguards to uo from the dev.... and sheep would not be what id call important changes or upgrades. They are clearly EC sheep and to me fuzzy in image.
    once shorn of wool they go back to normal cc mode which is a hell of alot better to my eyes.
    When i first saw one it looked odd when i saw a pen of them its horrid. They look so out of place its not funny...
    Dont try to slowly change my world to EC dev....

    This reminds me.. when (and why??) did we lose the shadows on animals, characters, etc? two publishes ago? I cant remember exactly.

    I really miss the shadows, now everything looks like it is floating

    Damn.. so many changes/mistakes on every publish than takes several months to *fix*

    Ugly? Really? Well, I guess ugly is just as much in the eye of the beholder as beauty is!

    This was actually unintended. I'm working on this now.

    I like em Grimm, and if they are intended solely for the EC and are some indication of what we can expect then I am very pleased. Please see my post in the EC love thread over in the beta forum regarding other wonderful things I know you will bring to a more updated client.

    :(

    I adore them, they look all fuzzy and stuff :) And they are NOT ugly :/

    But for all the hard core CC users complaining about the ugly sheep this will make them happy.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this Grimm, much appreciated :thumbup:

    Thank you Grimm for getting the ugly sheep away. They are out of place. Please make any classic client art fit in with the nice animals we already have.

    I think the graphic is fine in and of itself and would probably look great in the EC but when shown in the CC it looks odd and out of place. I think that's what most people mean and not to be mean, know what I mean? *pats Grimm*

    Grimm, tsk! ... you know full well that an announcement/admission of an "actually unintended" LEAK
    of what you all been doing ... hehehehe

    Well,
    we now have PROOF incontrovertible PROOF that you all have been working on a cross species breeding system ...

    It would be truly irrational to "assume" that the hard pressed art department was in any way engaged in mere doodles
    that >may/could possibly< in some mere "accidental" way ... make their way into a patch.

    So, uhm, aside from updating the look of sheered sheep in the EC, how goes that terrain update we were repeatedly told would be part of pub 72? Could we see a screenshot or two?

    Ahhh, the downside of monologue-ing.

    <joke>
    On a related point, for those who feel like it'd be worth our time to add those new sheep in the legacy client as an option, feel free to start a "Let's get those sheep some love" thread and post something like "It's time for those sheep to get the love they deserve!"

  44. *head slap!* GRIMM !!

    :scholar: shush!
    NOW Fisher price Knows of your plan/intent ...

    loose lips sink ship's and "accidental" admissions REVEAL your corporate backing ... (at least their unwitting >involvement<)
    and dastardly is also quickly dismissed
    OF course! it is normal and natural to want/desire, from a corporate making money point of veiw,
    That ALL person's be a little less smart, and continue paying to play a time wasting hobby ...

    its not like mankind has come close to cracking what the COWS intent/meaning was/were or even might be ...
    *shrugs*
    I can easily imagine that, from the cows point of veiw, rolling your window down and mooing at them ...
    is Quite absurd ... as drive by comments usually >are< ...
    even for them: context matters.

    You can lead a horse to water, but if you can teach him to float on his back
    THEN ya gots something "newish" ...

    *double shoulder shrug*
    Perhaps ... and as just a maybe to consider ... Perhaps all this unwarrented attention is spawned from
    >some sheep<
    "noticing/assuming"
    >some other "sheeps"< apparent new clothing

    O'well ...

    Reminds me of the parable of the Buddhist at the hot dog stand
    After ordering and receiving his purely vegetarian portion of meal
    He hands the vendor a twenty, and waits ... and waits, and waits until finally
    "Excuse me sir, I was expecting $12.95 in change ..."
    :talktothehand: pfffft! Grasshopper!
    the vendor replied
    Change comes from within !!

    Go look Airmid, I predicted this a day ago in the Pub 72 news thread. As soon as I saw the sheep were using the KR/EC models, I KNEW when people made the connection they were going to pitch a fit.

    God forbid the game advance or anything graphically.

    Got a crazy idea... work on something useful like the way gargoyle flying looks like you're permanently off a tile. Add a shadow or something. ORRR even crazier! Remove useless graphics like tomb stones and brambles that are out in the middle or nowhere uselessly. ORR ORR give us an option to turn off static animations from player's fields to improve game performance!
