I'll just say that I definitely appreciate any improvements to the environment, textures and the general look of the game. Thank you.

Making game prettier vs. codex… I'll take the graphics upgrade thank you.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Its just another reason for people to complain why their PC lag now. More graphics for people using outdated graphics cards.

This is all we will hear now in gen chat.


Thank god I dont have that issue.

yes other things need changing in game right now and maybe other things need fixing

Whoever the guy is in charge of this project needs a slap on the back or at least a few hours off work
courtesy of the management.

This is a job well done and to all the trolls and pessimistic folk just remember
a positive thing towards the game is just that a positive. This change will make your online star wars
world look nicer and come alive. Embrace the good things and by all means moan about the bad.
But dont whine over something as good as this
That's an excellent perspective that is lost on probably 90% of the members here. Thanks for posting.

I just imagine the devs sitting around a table coming up with their priorities for 1.5 and saying, "you know, we still have some major bugs to address, and the DPS classes need some serious balance fixes, but there is a rock somewhere on Tatooine that doesn't look just right. Let's get right on that."
Though I would've taken a little more tactful approach, I tend to agree with this statement. Yeah, those are neat little cosmetic touches, but when you throw a feature on the website from a tech dev. talking about how he likes working on the tech. side of things when there are still many bug and connection issues some of which have date back to early in the game, I think more of us active players would rather read about what the developers are doing to solve those issues and hearing that they are just as enthusiastic in making the game more playable and smooth than adding cosmetic touches. I don't know if there's a thread about those things where devs have talked about those things due to the fact that there is so many threads on these forums and I don't have time to search through all of them to find one or two that maybe are about the side of the tech dealing with the quality of the operations of the game. If there is, please point me to it.

I would like to know if there's being anything done about constant game crashes and server kicks (with error codes 9000, 1003, and 2005) that have started happening only after 1.4. I really like this game but would like to know that these "issues" were being known about and dealt with. Thank you.

Honestly I'm a little worried I won't be able to play it, I'm already having trouble with some graphic issues, so yeah here's hoping you don't make my favorite MMO unplayable just to make it shiny...kinda looked good as it was.

Woo! Awesome, I am about to start a new alt to level up with the F2P peoples, so I will be running through all the planets again.

Rest assured now I will be gazing off towards the sun even more to take in the views!

I find it amazing that every improvement that can be made to the game is still subject to whining and negative criticisms.

I mean, it's getting really hard to be positive, to make sense and not being (or appearing as) a fanboy.
