EVE Online Postcard for the week of August 14th, 2008

I've been running a lot of missions theses days, taking a break from my daily activities of roaming the web and LinkedIn for job opportunities. That, and working on finishing our basement. So I've been looking at a lot of gates these days, and have been remembering how much their looks got improved with Trinity 2. Just take a look at this screenshot of a stargate under Trinity I. Man what a difference! To think we thought those graphics were awesome!

We'll probably have to duck tape ourselves to our chairs when EVE goes DX10, or else we'll just fall off.

Fly safe mates!

Yea like any of us actually have DX10 capable video cards anyhow :P

Dx10? Honestly, who cares for something only a very small percent of players actually have?

Dx9 is by _far_ not at the limit. You can do a ton of incredible things with it. I'm looking forward to the new planet and effects graphics.

I'm not saying they should move to DX10 tomorrow. All I said was that it'll look better.

I'm still on AGP 8x here, so no rush for me to go DX10, cause that would mean a new mobo, new mem, new CPU, new gpu and at lot less cash on me! =)

EVE is already eye candy--can't imagine what it'll be like going forward. First time I fired up premium graphics on my new LCD screen supported by a 8800GT, my eyeballs almost dried out from failure to blink, I was so mesmerized.

Morph said...

Oh wow, been so used to the new graphics you start to take them for granted ;).

We so easily become used to it, it's nice to see how much things have progressed!
