    maybe the devs do still read stratics sometimes.

    I just have to say the re-do of the Sun Dial looks great. For all those saying the old, awkard looking one fit in with iso-something or other nonsense art, you can GO EAT BEANS :p To all those explaining the techy arty stuff, thanks it was an interesting discussion, i do appreciate it and learned a bit, but must say im much happier with the new look.

    Thankyou Broadsword for listening to the players and making the gift look good. Well done !

    I agree much better... Now go back and redo the art on the outfits. It's too big and and lacks texturing... Looks terrible.

    While we're at it, kudos on the tweak to the vases as well.

    Before on the left, now on the right. I still wonder where the light is coming from on the lower vase - it's obviously not the same place/angle as the top vase... but even still, it's an improvement.

    Just a thought devs... ( @Kyronix )

    It's funny that so many people were so worried about the sundial than spending time testing the expansion.

    Kyronix spent a lot of time in test adjusting things around feedback.

    I honestly don't care about the expansion lol. I get why they do it and that people dig that kinda stuff. New lands never really excited me :p I'm not trying to be rude about it, it's just not a big deal to me. If there turns out to be some interesting items there, then I'll get interested.
