Well since this is not Sony's preferred choice of information exchange asking your question here won't get you the results you seem to think it will.

So it'll be just like walking into any public restroom? Do your kids not use public restrooms? They somehow avoid passing bodily fluids during school hours? Which brings me to my next point. Do you not remember being 12+? You don't remember that one guy who could not stop drawing penises? Some of you guys get worked up over absolutely nothing. News flash, your son has a penis. Your daughter and her friends have seen one or two in a game of show and tell, at the very least. Or did you forget about that, too? Yes, there will be some juvenile things in game. But, get a grip guys, our entire lives from 12-30 was spent doing juvenile things.

Omg, guess my son won't be playing landmark, I know this post sounds funny but I'm being serious this could be a problem if they just let us build what ever  the players want as the video states lol

Now you got me curious... What kind of harm will a digital penis do toy our son... 0_o A penis is just a penis... Now if people were having sex and your child is a minor i assume you could argue that some form of "damage" would be done as your stress levels would perhaps rise as you try to explain what is going on... But beyond that i fail to see how any kind of damage can be done... Heck if violent movies and games have not created a generation of cavepeople i don´t think a digital ding-dong will either.

Players get to build whatever they want on their plots. If there is any censoring at all it'll be a huge downside for the game. I am going to build a perfect replica of my ass and turn it into an elaborate dungeon for brave explorers myself

Obviously this kind of player content won't be included in the player content portions of EQN though

Didn't say anything about a friend. Do you find yourself inserting words randomly into what you read? lol

just off the top of my head,  there will be a clause in the agreement you click on to play that will state that if you create vulgar or sexual, discriminatory things you will be perma banned..

course some people will try, but as forest gump said best: stupid is as stupid does.

Ever see one of those "Things That Look Like" web sites?

Remarkably easy to create them, without trying. Any tower structure can be viewed as a penis, by someone. Or boobs.

Impossible to police, doubt they'll bother to.

12-30?  I'm pretty sure most men stay pervs till death.  I'll admit it, I'm a perv, wife confirms this by telling me daily.

I don't see how you think anyone can stop something we've been doing for 1000s of years....

 

It's something that is at the core of every cognitive creature on this planet or ever will be. Call it an obsession with fertility, obscenity or just plan ol boredom. Your choices are to explain things to your kids now or sit back and let them get blindsided as soon as they are school age. If you're up for an interesting read you can try: Why Do People Love To Draw Dicks in Games? for a little perspective on the matter.

If your kid cannot survive the trauma of a penis statue, then you better take the internet/phones away from them.  Not being a smart ass, but that is just the reality of computers today.

 

You don't need Landmark to bring the offensive to you.

When you make an account for Everquest Next Landmark, you cannot build right away. You have to gather resources just to build a claim flag, then go claim the land, then gather more resources to build your giant penis statue. When that person ends up getting banned, he cannot recreate another giant penis statue right away, there will be a time period before he has the claim flag and resources to rebuild his giant penis statue.

 

And god forbid a little boy knows what a penis looks like....

What about all the countries where penis is worshiped and they put sculptures all over towns and make festivals? You want to restrict them from expressing their culture in game? Man, you are all so intolerant... :) Freedom only for you, huh? :P

I always find it so odd the amount of care we take to shield our young (supposedly) from seeing parts of a human body, public affection, or love within the same gender...yet we revel in violence on television, games, and other media. Kill in public, love in private kinda deal lol.

Oh and just incase it seems as if I am coming off as "violence in games is bad" kinda person, im not. I say its all good IMO, I just don't understand the difference between anatomy or "love" being bad but violence is ok from others perspectives. 

So aside from my confusion over that, I can't imagine SOE wouldn't attempt to control genital creations just to maintain some order and help encourage diverse creations other than phallic towers lol. 

That said, you can rest assured you childrens eyes will be mostly be genital free in game so they may slay creatures to their little hearts content!

SoE is a private company, it's their game, their servers, so there's no such thing as "freedom" here.

Georgesson already said that the player creations would be moderated and that that kind of stuff would be removed.

I never played EQ or EQ II at all (not sure why) but would happily play EQN just so I can forge a small valley and a few hills outside of my home into the shape of a nude woman.  Yessir, Gentle Slopes Valley, lol.  Or perhaps I'll cut and polish the tree in my yard til it becomes a shiny, big-eyed naked anime girl, woot!  Considering that the appearance and engine in this game are going to be miles beyond anything like Minecraft, I'd have to say that the possibilities will be almost endless.

In all seriousness though...this is unfortunate to say but the EQN devs will probably have to spend quite a few man-hours policing their own game just to look for things like this.  Perma-bans for things that are overtly offensive, I would guess?  The problem I see is, what happens when a player or number of players winds up creating something that could be construed as somewhat sexual, even though that wasn't their intent?  I mean, do you warn or ban those people even though any offense came essentially by accident?

Like I said, it's unfortunate because some innocents (or near-innocents) will probably suffer since we all know that in all likelihood their WILL be a 200-foot penis somewhere, and someone probably WILL beat me to making a nude-girl yard decoration.  I think that sometimes players having too much freedom is what has generally kept me away from most sandboxes; not that all of the creation tools EQN is boasting will be bad things, mind you, it's just that they are coming boxed with Player Idiocy, and that's going to make for some interesting situations.

I would think that in a game that prides itself on letting you "build anything you want", the actual fact of people building anything they want won't harshly punished.    I'm certain that there is some super-offensive stuff that will warrant removal, but in general, isn't building whatever you like the whole point?    Isn't the whole idea of landmark to be able to build ANY world, not just the world of EQN?   Personally,  I'm not interested in having a giant penis on my land, but if someone is, that's their business, they're paying for it.

this is not a game where there's no limit to being offensive

 

EQNL will probably be just as strict as other mmos  (EQ, DAOC, WOW, LOTRO, etc)

player names like EatCock or Penishead are not tolerated by other players and get reported

 

I don't see why a giant penis will be any different
