While I was / still am sceptical of some of these changes. For example the Amarr Station interior now having green lighting, today I noticed the positive effect on some of the Nebulas in the Game the recent graphics update has.
Especially Caldari Space in general including black rise had the different shapes and forms of the blue nebula barely recognizable previously, they are now much more vivid and clear.
They almost remind me of the old nebulas and lighting, which I somewhat miss.
Now if this warrants its on thread surely is debatable but I would love to see the art style further backtrack its roots.
Inb4 this belongs into player features & ideas … I see this more as general feedback tbf.
Some examples :
The old Nebula I mentioned :
Old Character Art (especially gritty and more unique clothing styles) :
Old Station Interiors (Two of my favorites here) :
While it’s hard for me to overcome nostalgia. Not everything that is new is bad but at the same time changes are not always good changes. Looking at the past and taking inspiration from some of these really unique and cool styles could be a step in the right direction, sure EVE right now argueably has bigger issues than art styles but as I mentioned earlier… consider this general feedback. Also considering changes to game mechanics. Maybe it is worth to look to the past for guidance.
