The December update in a nutshell.

SE seems to have pulled everyone from FFXI to try and save FFXIV... Makes you wonder why did they not just drop ps2 support and make FFXIV graphics FFXI? A 200-300 usd computer can run FFXI now with NO PROBLEMS.

Think about it. Eve online did it, upgraded all their graphics and people loved it. Se just copied all races upgraded graphics and slapped FFXIV to make people pay 12USD+ more for a BRAND NEW 12 YEAR OLD MMO!


It's a lot more complicated than that. We're talking hundreds of thousands of animations and millions of lines of code. At that point, you might as well just build a new whole game.

Rather than rebuild the graphics, they'd get more bang for their buck by keeping all the models the same and putting everything on a DX10 or DX11 engine.

All this is pie in the sky by and by until FFXIV is launched. You're right - the core FFXI team is currently 20 guys who are doing the best they can to provide some updates to the game while every other person in the company is involved in another project entirely.
