Well, i somewhat hope its a problem on my end, since noone really complained thus far.

But my character looks nothing like in the CC

I dont reall mind that much, and if i go into areas with lower light level its not as bad, i just found it odd.

Yeah, definitely not the same as what is done in the CC. I was just thinking about that this morning realizing I need to redo a couple alts to look right in CQ.

It doesn't matter how many alts you make, they are always going to look bad in CQ:

Bad CQ Lighting

So its not a hardware issue but how they placed the lighting?

I hope this gets fixed by the time you really "walk in stations"

I mean, im not big on game development but shouldnt this have been a very easy issue to spot?

It's lightning and the lack of emotion on your character's face.

It will be fixed eventually...you can't rush art.

I wonder if this is the "real time radiosity" that we were told to anticipate.

But, having played games like Oblivion and been one of the screen shotting tards that make up the community, I'm kinda satisfied with the effort CCP has made. Would be nice to have your character look as good as the avatar all the time, or even choose the lighting scheme in your quarters; but it's EVE, not Beauty Creator Online.

CQ lighting in general is atrociously implemented, and makes the character look hideous about 50% of the time. It's been brought up before, and while the current version is better than the original, it could be vastly improved.

Sure, where you stand it isnt bad, try going somewhere with more light, i had troubles even recognizing it was my character. She looks like a monkey.

You have a point! I looked like a completely different person when I had still enabled CQ. However I'm going to say that these illuminations are still more realistically looking than CCP's recent delusions of grandeur.

Where did you get that info, I haven't read anything about CCP dropping Enlighten technology.

The problem here is shader code where lambertian term is wrongly applied and ambient light doesn't make it, therefore we see these harsh light and dark areas, instead of more natural gradient.

I think you ought to get used to it... cause they want to have that dark seedy feel to the game. Thats why they lit it that way...
They are trying to force the game in a direction it wasnt designed for or fits well with.

Yep, this is INCARNA GUYS, SO AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! WEEEE!!!! We downloaded over 700megs of crap for this, extra visual lag in an environment that used to be smooth and woot! :D

GREAT SUCCESS HERE!!!

I dont want to post my pics cuz the moment I walked out into the Psycho Torture Room called CQ and began wobbling and walking like on drugs with the horrid movement I knew Incarna was ... meh.

But hey it's just me, I'm just making stuff up Very Happy

MWUAHAHAHAHAHA Laughing

Almost looks like someone took a **** in your DNA sample when they made that clone. Or it's those magical lights in CQ that cast lights and shadows from nowhere all over the room.

Yeah, this was the 1st thing i noticed when i logged in this morning. The character textures look bland even on the highest settings and the faces just don't look like the ones in the character creator. Also, my main character looks like she has cannon balls strapped to her chest. I would really like a new character remake Sad

CQ defaults to the lowest graphics choice, so ya, on low settings it looks like crap. Crank it up and it looks fine.

Made a new toon to check the stations loading time etc and PC temps etc. Wasnt that bad for me tbh, maybe its a glitch with some settings you have. (ignore the mirror glitch, thats my card freaking out)

Second one is cool aswell, dint see anny issues on my main either aside from the jacket an neck section. (to much glow on the zipper and some wierd reflection on the neck that looked diff in game then on the picture)

ATI (AMD) FTW Laughing, somethings need tweaking like ship placement, and menus + old docking screen etc, but for the most i find these pic fitting good into EVE its story line.

This enormous shadows mostly effect white skins, darker textures don't look that rediculously bad. But it not only the shadows, the texture quality is 2-3 times lower. The thing i don't understand is - we already have perfectly working engine for all those pretty details and light effects, why can't CCP just USE IT, instead of castrating existing stuff as much as possible and putting a remake out for players? If you are not sure about computers that will possible fail to run this - MAKE QUALITY OPTIONS.

Personally, i've enjoyed char creator a lot, making exactly the look i wanted felt awesome. But this, this just ruined it all.

This isn't that bad, but it clearly not the same as in character creator:

The second (right side) picture looks like some Disney cartoon.

The second link is a white skinned character dear, dont forget the character creator is a one time thing with static lights and shadows.
Thats not something you can mimik in a moving state, else the whole shadow and light thingie has not meaning in a station iff it doesnt affect your character.

Edited by: flapie 2 on 22/06/2011 23:09:33 And for FFS put you pics in link like you should in this forum section.
Edited by: flapie 2 on 22/06/2011 23:12:16 Come to think of it turn up the graphics aswell, since all ur pics seem rather low res to me (looking at mine), it usually helps to boost it.
