I created a topic about this some time ago.
To me world appearance is very important, unfortunately many worlds look very bad with current lighting and atmospheric settings.
Permamently changing colors can raise some controversy and people would be disappointed, but there is a solution to this. Atmospherics 2.0 toggle.
Let me just explain, main reason why I’m proposing this is to improve new player experience and general visuals of the game to make it more attractive to new audience.
So world settings probably look like typical JSON config. There could be another section
alternative with custom hand selected visuals (by devs). Players could toggle it if they like them or disable and stick with old ones.
So with this option instead of bad looking worlds we would get some very cool looking.
Examples of worlds with poor atmospherics:
Examples of worlds with cool atmospherics:
clouds, fog and bloom ftw!
random world gen is not always good…
some suggestions were previouly raised in this topic: Improving Graphics Rendering
also there is a good response from james on this topic james response
I’m just proposing some other alternatives
