    So i guess im confused.. i was always under the impression that landmark more of a crafting program that did tie into eqnext.. like use landmark to see what you can do in next or use landmark to build then put in next. Someone want to clarify for me? Are these 2 absolutely seperate? If so, is eqN just gonna be a themepark?

    Afaik, basically landmark is a game that will lay the groundwork for EQ:Next. Essentially, Landmark is basically their way of releasing a developer kit (aka MOD pack) for EQ:N before release. Players then use this to create whatever they want, and Sony then takes the best of that and uses that as content for EQ:N.

    So while technically they are 2 separate games, in many ways they are the same game hosted on 2 different servers, being released at different times.

    The main reason this will probably work is because they are more or less the same game. Except with Landmark you are actually helping create content for Sony to add into EQ:N.

    Graphics are bad, so they need to really nail the gameplay and the building aspects.  I really really hope they do.  But the one thing that has the potential to ruin the whole thing is how they monetize it.  If getting building materials is made to be super grindy so they can sell you materials for cash, it will kill any chance this game has IMHO.

    Who wants to play an editor? SOE does not understand what a sandbox game is. It is not editing, it is living in a virtual world.
    Why is just CCP understanding that?...

    Ok so a developer program given to players to help create content. great idea... But what does that mean for EQ:N? Is it going to just be a themepark with player created content (chosen by developers) placed in game? If it is a sandbox you should be able to build cities, castles, homes, etc. IMO.

    Maybe this is the case and I'm still a little confused and maybe, just maybe, This should be made more clear for the average gaming consumer?

    Oh my god the guys haircut. It seriously needs at least some anisotropic filtering.
