New Engine Update: Graphics Comparison (Information Update 3/10/21)

If it isn't obvious, this update is only on JP server for now.

EDIT 3/10/21: http://pso2.jp/players/news/27554/ So if you are curious on why ALL of my characters have a darker skin than usual on JP server, (I have not used 1 pass to change anything by the way,) then this is why. I can imagine it's already difficult on their end to transition from old engine to new.

So with that said, everything you see here is before the 3/10/21 maintenance update. What I'll do after that, is put a new date after these old images to keep track if they have changed anything new.

They made the noses less shiny, what a relief! I hated that about choosing one particular face, made the nose look greasy with shine.

I thought of doing similar thing, but I couldn't have done with this quality. Great work! 👍

Its going to be fun with new level of detail, and it looks like I won't need to do much on my alt other than hope the make updated versions of the De-Alma One basewear and innerwear, and the De-Alma Zero outerwear (Also hoping those will be easy to get if they come out).

As for my main, I will just have to estimate how a CAST would look based on some of the outfit sections and metallic surfaces in those images (Again hoping for part updates that will be easy to get a hold of, either Valiesse or Liner sets). Re-rigging CAST arms shouldn't bee too hard, the bodies, heads, and legs might still use roughly the same rigging between old and new models.

New Bloom looks awful...I love how our Bloom looks now, I really hope they change that.

Is this for real? They still can't put their finger around the weapons hilt? That is sad...

With all those new images, lots detail upgrades coming across the board, I have a feeling some videos cards will start screaming (my system should be able to handle it though)
