Greetings~

I know it's probably hardly worth a single thread, but I'm sure we can get this sorted out really quick.

The last time I played EVE, probably +- 1 year ago, when I did a tutorial mission for the advanced military agent where you learn to use afterburners to reach a safe spot, I was sent into an electromagnetic storm which was so visually impressive, that I went "Whoah". I was honestly feeling like I was in danger in this area (Caldari Space)

Now, I did the same mission again. (Minmatar Space) Same procedure, but this time without the impressive visuals. Were they cut from the game? or maybe relocated? And are there still locations in the game of similar visual impressiveness?

FYI here is the Official Clear Skies Website where you can find the past episodes in the Downloads area, and the current episode on the front page.

There's been no visual re-working of mission spaces, so the only explanation is graphical settings. Off the top of my head, post-processing and HDR are going to have the largest effect on such visuals, try tweaking those upwards.

Well, if I recall my setup correctly, I do have the setup I used to have, even better, actually, new hardware and everything. I don't suspect settings to be the culprit. However, i'll double-check them as soon as I get home again. In fact I should consider switching some down, since the game CAN get jittery at times.

And we're not talking chunky textures here. Technically A breathtaking visual from a year ago turned into a, well, nothing. Now, I'm not complaining or anything. All I was interested in is if there were any other places of stunning visuals like this or if anyone knows if they were removed. Just so everyone knows what I mean, please let me elaborate on what I saw.

I've undocked from the station with the mission and the necessary (debatable) fitted Afterburner in question, selected the deadspace location and jumped there. From there on, after getting a final description of the area i'm about to head in I jumped inside with the AccGate.

Imagine a sea of clouds, on the bottom and the top, of the color of rust and I in the middle. In various directions I could see raging tornadoes of the same color as the clouds with diameters surpassing most stellar installations i've seen up to this point. The electromagnetic storms tore on my shields, reminding me that I should not indulge in sightseeing for too long. I could hardly make out the small asteroid which was my ultimate goal. Even as I raced my ship towards it with my civilian afterburner the tornadoes seemed to not move an inch, being a testament to their estimated enormous magnitude.

Just a few seconds afterwards I reached the asteroid with my shield being about half depleted and warped out.


That might have been a bit over the top, but yeah.

Now, with THIS character the mission was exactly the same, except there were no seas of clouds, no tornadoes, basically nothing. Just empty space that for some reason did hurt me.

Now, I already pondered if they might have removed it because it, albeit being a great sight to behold, kinda is implausible.


Also:
I just found a post of someone in EVE General who claims the same thing happened to her. Seems like it's a common thing :I

I do believe you're referring to an effect that looks a little like this? :

Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

This is effectively a backdrop; it is not rendered (why it doesn't move). A similar thing appears in a few locations. There is a bug that is stopping these backgrounds from loading, in some situations.

It is most famously found in it's green form, pictured, which is in the infamous "recon" mission.

tl;dr - your setup is fine, the game isn't

Exactly this. Too bad to hear of the state of things, but ah well, it can't be helped. But thanks for letting me see it again. I know it's only a projected backdrop, but nevertheless it looks amazing :3

I though this thread meant there was tribute easter egg to the Clear Sky videos, I left disappointed to start my own thread

Heh, sorry to have you confused. I'll see to it, that I'll formulate my thread titles more clear in the future. After all One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself, right?

Nah, things work much better if you are an ass to everyone and expect to be treated like a king. :)
