Sony Online Entertainment released a trio of timelapse videos for EverQuest Next Landmark today showing off the possible results of the game's impressive and powerful building tools.

To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

Originally posted by Tiller I didn't know they were giving us tera-forming. Nice.
well it is sort of like Minecraft, except here you have more granularity rather than blocks. That is indeed cool.
A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.
Oh yes! Goodbye Minecraft, hello EQN: Landmark!
I also hope you can socialize with other builders around you. That would be so awesome..
You know when you play too much MMO's when your partners pants have become a rare drop.
Originally posted by MindTrigger I think Landmark is going to be a fun experience. Imagine all the stuff you will be able to build. I can see people hanging out and being very social in there too, you know, like how MMORPG games used to be.
I think so too. I really miss being social in mmorpgs, and I don't mean just being on a vent server getting yelled at by a cranky raid leader. But actually just hanging out and forming friendships! I hopefully anyway
Very cool videos I am surprised !
Originally posted by DMKano Note they don't show the actual tools used to terraform, this was done by 2 people at least who do this for a living.
And... it's still really impressive. Looks like there is a lot of control over how things look, and much less granular than Minecraft.
Definitely looking forward to playing with this.
Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.
Write bad things that are done to you in sand, but write the good things that happen to you on a piece of marble
This voxel tech is most likely going to have a fundamental effect on ALL types of games, provided there isn't some huge performance overhead somewhere.
This fine-grained level of construction is unknown in games of any type. MineCraft comes closest of course, but it looks nowhere close to this.
We are getting the SAME tools they use for development. This was addressed in the SOE Live panels. We will also be getting new tools as they are created.
Why wouldn't we? Landmark is about "paying" in the sand. You won't have the same freedoms in EQN, except maybe on your designated plot of land, but in Landmark they have no reason not to give us as many tools as possible for construction.
Originally posted by Eyesgood Wurm Online has had this feature for years. Just saying...
Wurm's building tools are rudimentary by comparison, and the engine/game is a clunky piece of junk. They won't even be in the same universe.
