The Elder Scrolls Online: If it looked like Skyrim by AllMyMind The Elder Scrolls Online: If it looked like Skyrim by AllMyMind
In my opinion and from what I have seen, the graphics in the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online are not bad, really worse than they could have been. A real step back. But I don't blame the developers. They want as big a customer base as possible, and not everyone can afford a good graphic card.
But one can dream, right?
So this is my wild imagination... A dream of TESO with Skyrim graphics and same visual style for interface elements.
Character selection screen.
The layout mostly borrowed from World of Warcraft.

All comments are welcomed with open heart.

They could have done what Wargaming does for their online game World of Warplanes. You can download the game version in either Normal Graphics or HD graphics. They both use the same accounts and servers, but one looks WAAAY better than the other.

in all truth as understandable as it is to be dissapointed especially with how the big step from oblivion (god i hated the character models for oblivion) anyway i also think it is something they had to do not only to make it open to more people with none super computers. But also because for a giant big world with only one server. Rather then diffrent servers it would take a rather strong toll on any system with skyrims graphics. So in the end it was a needed changed to make sure it runs safe.

I'd like to comment of your latter points:
It is not one server. There are dozens if not hundreds servers running the game. Fortunately, they are programmed "in-sync", so everything happens "in the same place". For instance in World of Warcraft, same thing was happening. Even if you played on.. let's say "Shatter" server, different locations were still located on different machines.

Also, graphics take no toll on the server (unless its physics, which there is nearly none of in ESO), so server does bear that load.

Feb 2014 Beta did not look like this. The graphics will blow you away they are so good. Remember, this is an MMO and not the old Skyrim single player...completely different game.

really? i was quite impressed. plus you could also have your graphics turned down. for such a big game they have to keep it down low, otherwise the game wouldnt even run. Also the landscapes were very beautiful

if they are the graphics, I am very VERY dissapointed. I was hoping for amazing graphics considering that skyrim had better graphics than and oblivion had better than Morrowind and so on. But oh well =(

I, myself, am surprised at the graphics of ESO when I was playing in beta. It is much better than I expected.

You must keep in mind the fact that the game must run smooth for as many people as possible, so therefore, they got to reduce the graphics slightly.

I do not think you should worry about the next singleplayer TES. I am sure it will be good and is coming along just nicely. 

Gotta keep in mind that the company that makes ESO is not the same that makes the singleplayer games.

As for the quality of ESO... I guess I will take a personal look this weekend.

Eh you are right, I am just not too fond of multi-player games. Namely cause there is always an idiot who gets on everyone's nerves or the moron that is using a microphone that seems to be making so much noise you throw you're own mic down in frustration.

Here is hoping the next TES game single player is good and such, Skyrim was awesome but in all honesty I wanted to do quests to kill more those uppity high elves that make me think of this one guy I know at work. Can't harm him but I can rip those uppity high elves a new one and get away with it, I sometimes play violent games to get rid of stress. That or enjoy the open world of a fantasy game.

You'll probably be able to get graphics mods and layout mods etc... You can get updated graphics for Skyrim after all. I wouldn't be able to anyway, I have to play Skyrim on lowest graphics to obliterate lag as it is. -_-

Most unlikely. While UI layout mods are possible (just like they are in other MMOs like WoW), other graphic-changing mods will most likely not exist.
At least not the kind of what Skyrim has: the ENB. Since it works by injecting a DDL file. Such things work fine with singleplayer games, but any online one will "bust" it right away.

nice job :D I really love absolutely everything that you've done here.
Personally I'm really excited for the upcoming game.  It would be nicer if the graphics looked better but at the end of the day I'm not complaining (+ they're still in beta stage). For me the upcoming game is about immersing myself in the environment, exploring every nook of Tamriel and most importantly (well to me anyway) playing alongside my friends. :3

Sweet as concept.
Anyway, this might just be me, but I don't think I've ever seen/played a better looking MMO than TESO. I mean, I have a rather good GPU, so with all my mods on and the graphics on Ultra, no, of course TESO isn't as good as Skyrim. But on default graphics with a mid level PC, I'd say it's on par.

I actually really like the graphics that we've seen so far of TESO. Skyrim's the only ES Game I've played, and when I saw Oblivion's graphics I was like "whoa, that's pretty good!" I'm excited to hopefully get TESO and have some fun with it!

Although I do not like the character models for Argonians, I would not say the graphics look bad. Also you have to remember that the game isn't finished yet and the graphics have been and will continue to get updated since then. Other footage that I have seen has made it look just like Skyrim, even footage from the video that this picture came from.

I wouldnt consider the one you can see now as final. Due to the fact that its barely Alpha. As far as I know Beta havent even started.
And the devs themselves said that the character models and the environment is NOT finalised by far.
However, I cant imagine it will be as beautifully detailed as in Skyrim, due to the MMO nature. And they must realised the simple reason why WoW was successful (partly), was due to the low computer requirement ^^
So, I guess they will do some balancing. I'll say we can tell when it comes near end of Beta that the graphics and stuff is final. Until then, its a fools errand to compare it and judge it.
