    Can you build your own small house with garden in citadel or only big castles/towns? Red something like that. In dark you can build your own small house with garden, I like that tame sheeps for some wool etc.

    I have no idea, i havent played either but i plan on playing citadel open beta and then buying/ possibly returning dark and light later today.

     I think both games look fantastic and similiar so i started a comparison thread for those who play them

    Nice.  Thanks for the heads up.  Will give the beta a go.  
    Minimal UI, looks like made for consoles.  Mixed reviews so far but nothing really bad standing out.  Someone asking for more PvE servers.  Will definitely try this.

    I just downloaded the beta.  It's a good thing they did this beta because there's a lot to fix.  Lots of bouncing back to main menu when trying to get on a server even if the server shows empty.  Single player not available yet.  Finally got into a PvP server with a few people on.  Game looks really nice and runs smooth.  Crafting is ok.  Get getting a red flashing 'Network' in the corner of the screen.  Chat is going off and on so I think I'm being disconnected from the network from time to time but not getting kicked from game.  

    Like I said a good thing, a good thing they had open beta first because this would have been bad launch.  Hopefully they will have most problems fixed in four days when early access launches.

    Now I'm getting a big red 'Server Not Responding' in the middle of the screen.  Ahh, just got dropped from server.

    This would be more interesting if they did this for a couple weeks and then let people decide if they still want to buy in. Fifteen hours with a bit of notice doesn't work for me, but I expect it's not much worse than most early access titles.

    I like the way Project Gorgon has done their early access. They have had campaigns, fund raisers, and have a shop, but everyone gets to play for free until they get close to a serious launch. They don't lock access away like CU, Pantheon, Ashes, Crowfall, etc. They don't try and squeeze players before the game should be launched. That's how I like it. Everyone else is pretty much the same to me with their gated access.

    Not to rain on your thread, sorry. I think it's great that you posted a heads up for people to hop in if they have a chance. My previous post was also based on posts I've read in other EA threads.

    I actually feel the opposite. I like both games so far but Citadel seems like it is easier to log into and play.  They both have a ways to go though.

    Can anybody tell me if these two games are played in first or third person modes?

    I suffer motion sickness, so if they're first person only, then I won't be able to play either of them :(

    I think it is way too early to be comparing these games. I believe they are both quite far from releasing. Maybe even a few years?

    citadel has got a ways to go in comparison to d/l
    This is pretty much my take away after spending time with both games yesterday


    Dark and Light to me is by far the superior game between to the two. Citadel is graphically impressive and runs smoother and much MUCH LESS BUGGIER than D & L. So how is D & L Superior you ask? Well its simply more fun to play, It feels much deeper and the world feels much more alive to me. The UI is fantastic and you just get , At least I do, a very dungeons and dragons type fantasy feel from D& L. Its hard to explain but i wasnt getting that from Citadel.
    Citadel to me was simply boring, It feels constrictive too. I couldnt climb mountains , I was forced from the outset to be a magic user, the mobs feel all thrown together in the forest with no ryme or reason, The gathering was dull all the oppisite of D &L.

        With all that said know what you getting into with D &L . On ultra setting at 2560 x1080 i get 15-32 fps . i HAVE A GTX 980TI and a 8350fx (I know its underpowered for the 980) but still performance is a issue for every one. D& L is also full of bugs and it often takes multiple attempts to log into the game ,the game can be really frustrating. But once you get into the game and start playing its a fun experience, Granted you like survival games but are sick of lazer dinosaurs,zombies or whatever else cliche survival game is out there. 

    Thats my take thus far, Iv put about 4 hours into Citadel and about 5 into D & L .

    Citadel has the option for both, D & L i could only play in 3rd person maybe it was server specific or maybe i never found the button but im pretty sure there is no option for it

    O one important thing i should add, Dark & Light has a hunger  &  thirst meter, Citadel does not.

    Currently have a server for Empyrion which we are loving... but in another month or two we will likely get bored.   Hope one of these two turn the corner by then and we can jump to that.

    I dont know anything about the devs associated with Citadel, but Snail is pretty bad which is why I dont see DnL really being a success in the end.

    I played both in third person.  Citadel started in first person but just hit F2 I think it was and you're in third.

    Citadel is also rapidly improving.  I was quickly able to join a PvE server and played for about 3 or 4 hours.  Still saw the internet hazard light flash in the corner of the screen but didn't get dropped and had fun exploring, crafting, and talking to others in chat.  Didn't die but came really close a few times and started seeing housing popping up in Citadel.  B&L seems to be improving also but more slowly, imo.

    If they are both accepting money to play them it's definitely time to compare them.
