You may want to bug report which systems have crappy nebulae so they know which ones to look at.

There's like 5000 systems, I'm sure some of them got over looked.

Or they could just release the uncompressed pack and not have to worry about touching anything up. There are 68 unique backgrounds, not 5000+.

My game does not look like the forum background, so im gonna go ahead and say they are all ugly.

Actually that's incredibly unfair of me, they aren't ugly. Just really disappointing they created a masterpiece of art and then managed to dumb it down to the point it lost all of its wow-factor.

I'd love for a higher res texture pack as well.

Count me in for a high texture pack. I didn't buy a gtx 580 to get dust...

im not sure why the premium / classic choice did not work .

but im guessing one can not rely on people to make the proper choice . and those with the p4 3ghz, 2gb, intel graphics will try and run the premium client . and the wonder aloud , loudly why the game will not run / work.

Except that each region has one background only for all its systems.

Why do people have to be so ignorant, egocentric and stupid ?


Because they don't pay their own bills.

So we all agree then, HD graphic optional download for those of us who can run it, and exotic dances with jiggle physics in the CQ (and I like the new ones btw)

How about we WAIT on new versions until they have finished the V3 stuff.... they haven't done the capitals at all or the minnies or Amarr, minus a few hulls.... I would rather we get this ironed out and have a pinned/toggle, all the ships to V3 get the mechanics worked out and all things working properly - and get the required CPU/GPU as optimized for the client as it can be, and everything smoothed out and working... THEN... as for the frosting on the cake... would that be too much to ask the community?

*Finish one step, then move to the next*... endurance is the key to victory, not jumping around and skipping things to get to the next level*

...um EVE players mate, a MMO filled with worse of the gameplaying world; they want it all NOW, just the way they want it (so it benefits them). They spend eight years complaining about a font, and the second its changed, scream louder that a toddler who just had his bottle removed.

Reasonableness? wrong game brother :)

We've been asking for that on the test server forums weeks before the release, tons of pages and likes, always ignored by CCP.

I would love to see a high resolution option.

But I don't think they have the manpower for it. It's a fairly labor intensive project.

But what they could do is take a page from Bethesda's playbook and release the code for enthusiast modders to work on.

They'd have to put some sort of security on it to stop hacking of the client, but look at what us guys with no life have done with the Elder Scrolls and Fallout games. Some fantastic home made texture pack out there.

C'mon CCP. I'm chomping at the bit here. I love modding stuff and would love to have a crack at texturing some of the ships in high resolution.

See what you can do.

Mr Epeen Cool


They have high-res original files, but they choose to release badly compressed versions to save bandwidth and so that ppl who run EVE on Commodore 64 can play like its 2003

What we have ingame is nothing like the Crucible desktop backgrounds or the nebula trailer they released. In high-sec where the space is colorful it's not so bad but in low sec / 0.0 where we get to see color on black backgrounds, the low-res and the tiled colors jump in our face.

So much ruined potential; its like you painted the Mona Lisa, people are paying to see it, but instead of displaying the original you take picture of it with a disposable camera and print it with an ink printer from the 90s and that's what you show, keeping the original in your basement. It's a shame.

well yes,

its really time to re-push EVE into 2011 again...with usual "standard" quality of textures of this graphic card generation.

or will this definately lead to performace problems in fleetwars? If not, CCP hang on, and give it a high quality option....BEFORE you leave the staff back to WoD ! :-)

Ugh, you pretty much said it.

You think they would be more proud of their artistic accomplishments... yet they don't even respond to this.

No need for double client (normal and premium), just release "HD patch" with hi res textures as an optional download. And as mentioned before, Capitals looks like craap with present textures.

All effects, postprocessing and other stuff are great... JUST THAT HI-RES TEXTURES.

And as long as EVE is PC/mac only, you dont have restrictions like consoles. Make it best looking game and i bet that EVE would be as an 3D benchmark for gamer magazines (opportunity for EVE advertise/marketing).

A pc benchmark for eve would require a fleet battle.

Agreed. Capitals look especially horrid.


The Thanny needs a real texture buff, and more details to make it less of a complete flat pancake! The Nyx might be flat in areas, but there's detail breaking it up to make it more pleasing to look at.
