with dynamic camera you definitely need more pixels. Nebula's are extremely low res when you are close to ship

Very true.

Can we make 200 pages before the end of 2016?

So many people reading the title of the thread and none of the dev responses, especially the ones in the last couple of years (given the age of the thread, that really really matters).

At the current speed we'll need another 6 months for that. At least.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

I think you mean rate? speed is distance over time and thread pages aren't measured in distance???

Speaking of can anyone help me with some API integration on my spreadsheet for Veldspar mining efficiency

After reading the Devs it's pretty obvious we won't be getting those any time soon, maybe not at all.

Well, not that close. But the message hasn't gotten through yet, so we have some posting to do.

5 out of 8 or so Devs in this thread seem to be supporting the idea, CCP Seagull is CCP Seagull and CCP Darwin is just making excuses because it would probably be his job. I know, because I'd do the same if I were him. Big smile

But seriously, yes, the compression is terribad but in the end, even with bad compression a texture will look better at twice the resolution. And in this game where most of the screen is just a skybox most ot the time, the same skybox textures are still just 1k, with 1440p and 2160p monitors slowly becoming a thing.

That they don't have a means to deliver optional files is just bogus. The new launcher downloads the files for Singularity and Duality on demand, CCP Snorlax made an unofficial launcher that downloads different versions of wine to play around with. They could probably just add a checkbox for 2k or even 4k textures as well, have them download as separate archives and add an "ultra" texture setting in the menu that only appears if these files are present. Admittedly, I'm not enough of a developer to say how difficult that would be, but to me it looks like the necessary infrastructure is there now.

I highlighted the important part of your post. You dismissed the developer who can (and did) say how difficult it would be just before admitting that you don't actually have the relevant information.

Some Dev saying it can't be done doesn't necessarily mean it can't be done. Our own devs constantly keep telling me stuff just won't work, until they finally cave in and make it work. You are just believing that because...?

The one thing that does seem plausible to me is that it wouldn't make all that big a difference, and they could improve the visuals much more by doing other things. However, for some things like the Skybox and some Capitals (looked at the phoenix recently?) no amount of shenanigans will be enough. No amount of shader magic and fancy compression will be able to hide the fact that you are stretching a small texture too far.

Why isn't this a thing? Most of the ships in EVE look absolutely hideous. I could make a better texture in paint.
