T plus 24 hours and at least one blogger, Rixx Javix, has unashamedly declared his love for Crucible graphics. I will not disagree with him. It is truly lovely and I'd be lying if I said I didn't take my nano-fit Tristan, Speed Racer, out and do a little dancing myself.
But while I wasn't out there, I decided to see how far the dev team got on increasing the immersion level in Eve Online. Here are the results.
I warped to a Customs Office I knew to be on the other side of a gas giant.
One other thing I noticed, which was not really immersion, and may have been there all along, was a line, like a small ring, around my first PI planet. As I pondered what it was, I soon got my answer.
While there is more to do, and I hope it's being working on already, the new New Eden look has me smiling and... well... dancing among the stars. Good work CCP!
