It is the sum of awe! Very nice!

Sunken ships there may be, in the harbor, but I definitely see a building that appears to have taken a dunking.

I can see how it is at Ephesus University. The pub is nearly as large as the library.

You heard about the students at Ephesus who went to buy books? The story goes Downhill from there...

It's nice seeing more detail.

It's nice seeing more detail. Good looking update.

A few things I noticed that you may want to look at again:
-the chain link fence in-between the basketball courts probably shouldn't have the angled barbed wire at the top as it's only there to separate the courts and keep the ball from rolling onto the other court, not keep people from climbing, like the fences surrounding the courts. Also, it should be centered between the courts instead of placed on the baseline of the closest court in the picture.
-the picture with the vehicles in front of University Books, the tires are clipping through the pavement a noticeable amount and the small box van/moving van seems to be leaning towards you, like the tires on the opposite side are raised in the air (EDIT: or it might just be the angle of the picture)

And just a question out of curiosity, in the very first picture you can see what looks like a retaining wall in rectangle shape out in the ocean around the map...is that like a storm wall or the edge of the map? It doesn't look like there is water past it so I wasn't sure. Is that how it will appear in-game, like you'll the see map edge that close to shore?

Not huge things, probably not even things that I'd notice or care about in-game...just thought I'd point them out and ask.

Hey Cleric,

Hey Cleric,

so some of what you are seeing in these pictures we are using assets from UE packs. Some of those assets (like fencing and cars) we are using placeholder assets that we will go back and create more diverse, exact assets. I'll be looking for better fencing for that separator fence, and we definitely will have more diverse cars (those are placeholders that are actually junk yard cars with flat tires... we will have lots of different types of cars all over the place eventually...). Regarding the side wall, that is the border of the visual area that will have a very different look in the game than what it looks like now...

Yeah, the cars aren't clipping, they just all have flats.

The truck in the book store parking lot? Yeah, looks about right.

I like what I'm seeing! I

I like what I'm seeing! I can imagine running around to mish doors or street sweeping here.

Yep, that truck door looks appropriate. Now here's hoping that one's aura doesn't jump back out of the door before the instance can load as it does in a certain other old game...

Spurn all ye kindle.

Doing a full "stay at home

Doing a full "stay at home for my own protection" is exactly the WRONG (and right?) time to tease us with some excellent progress..........

For shame..... (HORRAY!!!)

Love the city already; hope

Love the city already; hope for a lot of interactivity (i.e. entering the box club and have some old school boxing with NPCs or other Players then heading over to the bar getting smashed :D).

I guess still no paypal news? *heads to the store*

Edith says nope, better luck next time :/
