    I was happy about the announcement of Trove because the genre needed a challenger to Minecraft...but then I saw Landmark and I cant even look at Trove anymore, the idea of graphics like that has been proven that it isn't needed for this style of game and now looks like its the cheap path of game making.

    This. I absolutely agree with you...

    Small team/small budget.

    That said, the graphics are a turn-off to me, but more for style reasons.  Color palette is unappealing to me

    Cheap as in costs-more-than-any-of-us-make-in-a-year cheap or like Activision Call of Duty cut and paste cheap? Which would still cost millions.

    And people say they could careless about graphics, by these comments, I think people care more than they are letting up to be.   Which is sad really...  I like a lot of old 2D games with 8 bit with amazing game play vs some pretty trash..  People  want it all, and its not going to happen.. If they did, it would cost way more and take a lot more time.. People need to understand this with games today..   Landmark is Voxel with better graphics, but what will the game play be?? Copy paste of EQ, what I seen yes.. The crafting is fun, but so is Minecraft and any other voxel base game.

     

    I think Landmark is hoping people get hooked by the better graphics of voxels and it will work until people play it for a bit and go oh, EQ clone.. Again, I have seen LandMark and Nexted, I like Landmark sure, but once they add game play, we all have seen it.. Plus free to play, no thanks... Nickel and dime me to death, I like Sub based games, communitys are most of the time better and I like games with Subs not !! Pay this, oh can't do this and that need to pay.. I want one payment and done.

    I care about aesthetics.  Trove is very unappealing to me aesthetically.

    I was interested at first but the more I watch, the more the heavy Cel shading and voxel-based graphics wore on me.

    What are you  talking about?  I don't wanna be limited by cube objects, I don't wanna graphics without any aesthetics, I don't wanna play on an empty world without any realism. This is not a normal mmorpg which gameplay is more important than graphics. This is a game which I should create my own imagination. I'm still playing Tibia. If I care graphics that much I don't play this game at first. But this is a whole different thing. You started with graphics and finished with payment model. Seriously...

    These are the real 7 wonders of player-crafted creations.;

    Why does it always have to be about one vs the other? Can't we like both! They are so not alike it's not even worth comparing.

    to be strictly technical, Landmark is also based on voxels. The only difference is that voxels in landmark are 10 times smaller than those in trove which makes higher def. of graphic details possible.

    Players have build 1:1 scale star destroyers, working CPUs, complete moviesets and such in minecraft.

    There is surely alot of effort in all these Trove creations, but what i see is a skull, a fortress and so on.

    Wonders? Hmm....

    Well I am one of the featured players in the article, name is Gilnidor. And the screenshots are only showing a small portion of all the builds. I have built the hanging gardens of Babylon in my homeworld if that counts as a wonder :)

    I read through the comments and get a bit sad at some of the comments. I enjoy Minecraft, Landmark and Trove. Three different games sharing only the voxels though they are off different sizes. What Trove offers compared to Landmark and Minecraft is a really nice community and the developers are really in touch with us the players. And there are so many aspects in Trove that you do not have in Landmark or Minecraft. And to compare them is just silly. 

    PLAY WHAT YOU ENJOY!

    have you guys tried Landmark? 

    I mean, it's a great concept, but holy crap they keep trying to optimize it and it's still very very sluggish, I'm concerned they bit off more than we can chew

    Old games are one thing... they belong to a place in time - your mindset goes to a special place where you completely ignore that kind of stuff... new games on the other hand are a different story.

    Now... when people say they "dont care about graphics", well theres a huge grayscale that people use for that expression, from "I dont care about graphics" to "going full retard"... this is going full retard. And I can handle minecraft and cant handle this...

    Haters are going to Hate, with that being said. The only thing I can see from the picture I don't care for is that it's really bright. But I can only assume that can be taken care of with a little bit of adjustment in the gamma if that option is there. Will I buy trove? Probably not cause well the Pixelmon mod owns. So as for now with this genre MineCraft FTW.

    Kick to the Face.

    Cheap? Landmark vs Trove vs Minecraft? Sorry but you forgot to factor how much fun minecraft and trove are compared to landmark. Trove is like the little engine that could - keep up the good work

    Try Rust for a realistic Minecraft type game + survival mmorpg in one.

    "mmorpg.com forum admins are all TROLLS and losers in real life"
    My opinion

  • VannorVannor YorkshirePosts: 2,970Member Uncommon

    I dunno.. this game has the building and a proper game all in one. Minecraft hardly has any 'proper' game and EQ:Next is separated into two games.

    So far this seems to be the only one for the all in one package.

    No, not even close.

    Landmark is not going to be even close to EQ/EQ2...hell, they even DROPPED the EverQuest from the Landmark title. And why are you saying "Plue Free to play, no thanks" as if Trove is NOT going to be when it is?
