Fan Site VIP Event (Part V)

Fan Site VIP Event (Part V) -

Today we have unveiled the fifth and final installment in our coverage of SOE's "Fan Site VIP Event 2004."  In this last feature we will cover graphics, artwork and quests.  In addition we have an entire gallery full of photos from the event for your viewing pleasure!  Here is a snipped from today's piece:

The one thing right now that the fanbase can see is the character creation disk that recently shipped. There has been a lot of very passionate and vocal criticism in that the characters look very doll-like and plastic, and also the hair looks like it is made of playdoh.

This game has been in development for 4, almost 5 years, ever since right after Kunark. It's been in development for a long time, there's a lot of legacy things we've had to do. I think of the original team, out of the 100 or so people on the EQ2 team only 16 or 17 have been here for the duration. We've seen a lot of turnover in not only the members of the team but also the approach to how certain things are done and even the idea of what we were going to do with the product. Because of a lot of that as we've gotten closer to wanting to produce the game we've had to prioritize what is important and what is not. So for example the skin, we've done a lot of work on that at the expense of the hair because people are going to see more skin than hair.
