Nominations for replacement

Al Kharid desert

Current image

Description: Al Kharid's Desert, located just north of the city
Reason: The reason it needs replacing is due to the area having been slightly updated with lighting changes, water detail and shadows located differently from the old image.
New Image: [1]
Expiry: {{RuneScape:Featured images/cd|18:40, March 17, 2015 (UTC)}}

Bandos's throne room

Bandos throne room statues.png

New version: click me
Reason: Bigger, portal in the middle. Floor textures aren't as well visible though, dunno why.

    Because goodness is only an opinion. You may feel that NXT has improved the image, but others might not have. When consensus decides that an image is worthy of being featured, it only decides it for that revision. If a major change is made to an image, then consensus needs to be met again by re-evaluating the new file. Featured images are hardly a pressing matter, so there's no harm in letting a nomination run for 7 days, even if it does only feel like a formality. MolMan 16:58, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

cave

Everything is improved by NXT for this image, honestly—lighting, textures, anti-aliasing. Most important of all, the guard's animation has changed; he now comes with an attitude.

Several things for this one:

  • Support 3 - As nominator. MolMan 19:01, May 1, 2016 (UTC)
  • Support 4 - I'd prefer frontal angle, standard lighting. I.e. current version but with more draw distance. :P User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:21, May 1, 2016 (UTC)
You can go take that one yourself. MolMan 19:22, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

blocks

  • Support MolMan 19:06, May 1, 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Shadows make it too dark, and in this case increased draw distance only distracts from the subject by adding an ugly mountain slope in the background. :/ User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:25, May 1, 2016 (UTC)
Would an angle more similar to the original change your mind, as I've quickly gone and taken a replacement which can be seen here. In this example the focus is mainly back on the stone circle while still retaining the NXT draw distance. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 12:38, May 4, 2016 (UTC)
It's a bit nicer but I still prefer the current version, since the shadows are considerably less dark and, in this case, low draw distance is better IMO. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 13:33, May 4, 2016 (UTC)
The current version is heavily outdated though, ground textures have been altered, NPC models updated and lighting in the area was changed. We can't just leave it that outdated when all other images are going to be brought up to date. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 13:58, May 4, 2016 (UTC)
You and I have different definitions of 'heavily outdated'. :P This is very slightly outdated, and not sufficiently so to warrant a delisting if this fails, IMO. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:42, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

GE is pretty updated.

4 images to vote on (though kinda only 2). I had a lot of nasty z fighting, so I got the best angles I could get with minimal glitchiness. Wasn't able to find a good enough angle with nothing, so I took those and fixed up the graphics myself.

  1. Current angle:
    1. cleaned
    2. glitchy
  2. Frontal
    1. cleaned
    2. glitchy

2.1 MolMan 14:15, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

2.1 as well. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 14:31, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

2.1 pls svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 15:07, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

I assume you're saying you want to delist it then? MolMan 16:52, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose for now - I'd go for 2.1 but only once the sword is removed and the fountain brought back. Until then, I'd suggest keeping the current image. Or, because it's obsolete, 2.1 but replace immediately when the sword's gone. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:12, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

2.1 - sword is a thing, should be there, can always retake once fountain is back User talk:ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of User talk:ThePsionic ThePsionic Special:Contributions/ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of Special:Contributions/ThePsionic 20:50, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

Closed - Yes check.svg There appears to be a rough working consensus to replace this with the cleaned frontal shot. The concerns relate to the presence to Sliske's sword. Thus, when Sliske's sword is removed from the Grand Exchange, the replacement image taken from the same angle can be immediately uploaded and treated as a FIMG, without additional discussion. --LiquidTalk 01:44, May 10, 2016 (UTC)

Graphics didn't change much, but I think it looks a lot nicer with bloom.

o - Disagree on this one; waaay too bright (and not very dark) when thumbed, can't make out the streams from the heads as well. Other than that it's just slightly zoomed out, so meh. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:49, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

New Varrock

Not much has really changed since the previous revision, however it does take advantage of NXT's increased draw distance, improved shadows and bloom on the statue. Additionally the area to the west of the statue is visible.

  • Oppose - Pretty much the same but the angle is sightly worse. Also, the lighting is unnaturally bright, to be honest. Admittedly it's a tiny difference compared to the current version, but one can be choosy when it comes to FIMGs, :). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:42, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Per Fswe. This is the inside of a pyramid. Why is it so bright? Also, the shadows make no sense. The shadows from the things inside suggest there's another light source shining roughly opposite the direction the camera is facing. Either someone tore a hole through the wall and none of us noticed, or this picture is illogical and shouldn't be featured. --LiquidTalk 15:56, June 15, 2017 (UTC)
To be fair, the current version has that as well, though it's a bit less obvious. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 09:23, June 16, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, the way they handle lighting is a bit weird, with an artifical sun hidden from view (which is where the shadows are coming from). If only the area was graphically updated to match Sophanem's bank visually and lighting wise. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 14:12, June 16, 2017 (UTC)
