The worlds themself in SWTOR looks really great,this is just even better for us that likes to be immersed.

ah, so is this why some people might need newer drivers than are available for their video chips?

I was wondering as there weren't any graphics changes listed in the patch notes I could see.

We need lots more testing on this to nail down the crash to desktop problems in 1.5 and see if it related to needing newer drivers as some manufacturers unfortunately don't update their customised drivers for OEM on-board chip setups so affected computers which meet the minimum specs may be unable to run the game after 1.5.

The world building has always been a strong feature in TOR. It'll be nice to see this asset clearer.

It certainly looks very pretty, but I hope it doesn't kick any(more) awful issues, like the random crash-to-desktop's people are experiencing.

New graphics you say? Will you fix the FPS problems that are in 1.4 for dual video cards?

To some it might seem like such a small thing; especially given how many players feel there are still glaring bugs that should be take priority above this sort of thing. However, to devote the time and energy to do the 'little' things like this shows that you guys care about your players and the worlds you've created for us to play in.

So on behalf of the players who do enjoy the game; to everyone here that runs the site and the forums, and to everyone at BioWare and EA and LucasArts; thank you for caring to give us updates like this.

I love this as well.

..................but the last time we tried to do something like this in 1.4..the game broke...I'm bracing for lag-agedon.
