Can we just appreciate the quality of NGS scratch items?

Could you post screenshots of what they look like on your ends? Because this render bug has effected others, and the result is usually the same. Some people aren't effected by it too, I'm aware.

I'll recheck, because this may have been fixed by the texture quality bugfix.

Xbone S player here, my innerwear does seem to be low quality just like Krinos. Silence Lied: Steel looks horrible as you can see, while Eastern Sorcerer looks decent if you ignore the blurryness on the red lines around the arms.

At first I thought that it might just be how they looked in the salon, but the quality appears to be the same in the overworld. I have High Texture Resolution on my settings, as it is the maximum resolution the game allows me to have (I've read JP has Highest setting, idk if it still isn't on Global.) IMG_20210717_200145.jpg

So Krinos isn't the only person with this problem.

I'm seeing slight pixelation on Steam as well.

If you look closely at the NGS release, it's as pixelated as the classic in terms of close up details such as inside the green circle.

Here's mine in various ones, I don't have this issue whatsoever, and even the scratch preview screen is in HQ.

None of my innerwear look nearly as horrible as posted in the OP.

However, the texture quality for Silence Lied is the same as Meikoloid (although since my avi doesnt have the chest slider maxed out its much better due to not being extremely stretched out). Other innerwear I have seem pretty much the same as they were before NGS.

Global has the Highest setting (at least on PC).

I play on Ultra and don't usually have this problem, but I will say I see similar things in the item preview window:

So, I'm not sure how the preview window chooses its graphical settings, but I'm wondering if whatever issue's causing the preview window to use worse graphics (if it's not an intentional choice for performance, which seems weird when it's a window made for you to compare looks) is also affecting users in the real world for whatever reason.

Preview window is all fucked for me. Lightning is all too bright my character is too white, it makes it hard to preview makeup, and it also uses the lowest Texture Resolution. The lightning problem isn't present in the PSO2 preview window but it still uses the low texture resolution 1b77e715-8e0f-4c60-8bbd-caf0b64f91a12.jpg f8e91e08-66d1-423e-b913-77a48ecd0a512.jpg

I checked several of my innerwears. N-Viola Magica looks fine except for the monstrous appearance of my character's NGS body that I have tried in vain to fix. Lace 1, Large Stripes 1, and Holy Phantasm all look fine. Only one that appears pixellated to me is Libre Girl, and that might just be due to my chest being small. pso20210717_211048_000.png pso20210717_211144_001.png pso20210717_211158_002.png pso20210717_211240_004.png pso20210717_211209_003.png

Something to be pointed out is that since NGS the game renders players that are not you with lower resolution textures. When you view your own character in any "preview" window that ends up applying to them there too. This hits PSO2 items the hardest.
