This is most likely the most important issue for me.

yes it's fluff but...

What is going on in the art department at CCP? I know they must be working hard creating art everyday. I mean that's 6 months of art. ..

but What are we, as the player base going to see out of the past 6 months of work form the art department?

Yes I know they made the ranks but that's not 6 months of work :P

SO I would really like it if the CSM asked CCP what's going on with the graphics updates. I mean at least replace the asteroids. shutters.

So if anything think of this thread as a

"PLEASE CCP! At least update the graphics for the asteroid belts "

I've seen this three times now I think. Can you not edit your OP to support yourself? Or did CCP make a mistake (that never happens Laughing)

I like the shineyness we already have, do you really need more shiney so soon? And in asteroid belts of all things?

Fake edit: *checks skills* ooh, my mining skills are completely maxxed out >_>

Well hmm maybe I should edit my op to make a different point...

Basically I'm just saying I want to see what CCP has done art wise over the past 6 months, even if not put in the game, a kind of... Art slideshow for us art addicts out there.

And I'm sorry it's just whenever I show people eve they are like "OMG it's so pretty" and then the frist thing they notice in the trail is "wow that asteroid looks very... 2002..."

maybe it was a bad example :P

Also no you can't show support in your op, , but yes you can edit a post to show support even if you didn't when you 1st posted.

I'd be disapointed if there were no devblog concerning art before empyrean age comes out.

There was info that part of CCP staff is working for another game World of darkness now. Next planned Eve expansion after Empyrean Age will be Ambulation which is also require a lot of graphics work. So I'm afraid that second graphics update took a back seat to those projects. IMHO if thats true, they should at least let as know or give as some info about stage of their work.

I would rather have new space backgrounds, planets and asteroids, better weapon effects, explosions and ship\missile trails than all those new reskined ships.

Signed. The old effects and stuff look rubbish next to the new ships.

Supported. I'm a graphics ***** and I'm curious to see if those ruined ships seen in the EA website screenshots are something to look forward too or not...

I can't see any reason not to support this. Sure, I probably won't use the graphics enhancement but there is still no reason not to support it.

yes, some of the effects and art still is classic. An update on the continuance of the trinity project would be nice.

How exactly is this a votable CSM issue? Confused

This should go to General Discussion, Features and Ideas or Game Development, not here.

You can of course create an issue thread, but then please clearly state why you and other players have a problem or dissatisfaction with the current situation, and provide suggestions on possible actions to be taken.

Don't misunderstand me - I am all for shiney new graphics Smile But this is not a discussion forum here.

Good thing this isn't a discussion.
We the players want you the CSM to ask CCP what the current progress on the graphics enchanments they are promising us.

This thread is for people that want the CSM to pull the vale off the art department and show us what they have accomplished in the past 6 months.

I don't see how this could be discussed as players. It's an issue that there has been no news.

and anyone that agrees with me should support this thread, we would like some transparency.

Unless you mean you think that CCP might read and reply, Howeer I find that unlikely as they are very bsy with more important matters.

unless the players make it more important of an issue.

Also I could add a couple of other things as far as the art department goes.
how ever I see the following as what should go into other forums.

-fix the texture on the back of the scythe mining cruiser in the classic client.
-New asteroids and other space junk models
-Better effects
-Exploding ships as an optional effect
-better scale when near a planet (it should take up most of space honestly if your that close)
-Better nebulas with skybox objects that move based on where in the system you are.
-Option to turn off nebulas (ugh I hate this one but players want it)
-Giving the new tech 2 probe hull green windows

Just going to CCP and saying hey we'd like an update isn't very easy.
