Nominations for Replacement

Death's office

replacement 2 (Tony's version)

Previous discussion: Here.
Reason: Higher resolution, less compression artifacting, and darker lighting

  • Support - As nominator. wD4kihE.pngγ€ŒπŸ’¬ | πŸ“γ€ 01:08, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 06:27, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
  • Weak support - The colours look sharper and the view is more open, however two details bug me. The first is that the stairs look rather darker than in the current version, such that the carpet isn't really visible. The second is that Harold doesn't hold his hands together and isn't illuminated anymore. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:48, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - I've attempted to retake the image to try and fix Fswe's minor complaints while maintaining the same angle as you can see in this image. There's not much really different apart from the bloom being noticable on the door behind Death and the ground being a tiny bit brighter and the textures (at least to me) look slightly cleaner on the window murals. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 12:33, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
Every so slightly better, I agree. I'll leave it to Basenji's discretion. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 11:56, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • ?!?!?!? - Are we really trying to replace an image that was featured for literally one day? --LiquidTalk 15:46, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
I only noticed it was nom-ed after it closed -wD4kihE.pngγ€ŒπŸ’¬ | πŸ“γ€ 01:36, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment - Tony's version added as replacement 2, I agree it's better -wD4kihE.pngγ€ŒπŸ’¬ | πŸ“γ€ 01:36, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Image will be replaced with the second version. --LiquidTalk 00:06, July 22, 2017 (UTC)

Mogre Camp


Previous discussion: Original nomination; first replacement.
Reason: No players, since you can orb things now through h4x. Also bigger and more fish and stuff. And yes, Elf's version was definitely colour-enhanced.

  • Oppose - I prefer the zoom on the first image, you can see more of the reef. I also like having the player there, it shows off how unique the area is with players only being able to access it through diving. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 16:33, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
Just retook a version more similar to the original with the NXT client, but this area just hasn't aged well to remain featured in my opinion, especially when compared to other areas of the game. Also image is only jpg as I wasn't signed in when I uploaded to imgur. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 21:50, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
You can see the walls in the distance, that kind of kills the sense of underwater mystery. :/ User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:18, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Image will not be replaced. --LiquidTalk 00:08, July 22, 2017 (UTC)

Clan Citadel

replacement 1
replacement 2
replacement 3

Previous discussion: Here.
Reason: Per the previous discussion's desires, this has more fancy plinths and statues. Unfortunately I couldn't get them all fully visible because of the banners, but this looks good enough, methinks. Also I took the liberty of enabling bloom and lightning sparks to the portal. I think it looks pretty neat.

  • Oppose/shameless plug for RSW citadel - If we're going to feature customization on the statues (that is, not the default portal without statues) we might as well use the clan's citadel. :) --LiquidTalk 15:02, July 14, 2017 (UTC)
Er...not sure if serious, sorry. I'd say GWD plus a mage is pretty iconic, though. Not to mention pretty. But you're not really opposing because it isn't the wiki's citadel, are you? :d User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:40, July 14, 2017 (UTC)
The wiki's GWD layout is better, with Nex in the middle flanked by the 4 other generals. --LiquidTalk 16:05, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
I'll go retake it then. Maybe. :P But I don't see why the Scrying Pool version isn't better than the original. ;P User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 16:36, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
I've just retaken one from the RSW clan citadel (Entered in as guest since not part of clan), ended up with this result. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 16:38, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment - Added replacement 2 suggestion to the nomination, on Liquid's request. Also, I turned off scenery shadows because they looked out of place. Getting the lightning zaps right was really frustrating... EDIT: Just discovered Tony beat me to it, but I think the new one mimics the old angle better. And the statues have misplaced LD as if made of metal rather than stone in his version too. Just a detail but eh. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:30, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
The problem with yours though is that it's Java, which would mean it'd need retaking anyway due to NXT being the preferred client choice for all images now. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 18:45, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
Doesn't really matter, does it? As a rule of thumb, NXT is preferred by policy. If consensus determines a Java version (or blue cheese version for all I care) and everything else is the same, then, well, duh. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:41, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment - Apparently someone (the suspects are me, Gareth, and Ryan M - I didn't do it and Ryan probably hasn't touched the citadel in years) replaced the Graardor statue with a Kal'gerion statue. I've placed an order for a Graardor statue again to complete the GWD holy pentinity (is that a word?) but unfortunately the order won't go through until the next build tick. :( --LiquidTalk 15:43, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
Since this has apparently become a Nomination for Liquefaction, would you like it to be retaken with or without bloom and scenery shadows? :P I'd prefer with and without respectively. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:50, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • shrug* I literally don't care about the presentation of the image, I'm only interested in the subject. --LiquidTalk 00:21, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
Added. Previous angle was impossible with Graardor though. Weirdest FIMG nomination ever. :P User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:45, July 20, 2017 (UTC)
Just attempted to see if I could get one with the original suggested angle but Graardor doesn't really suit that angle, so I also took one with a more centered approach which does show it a bit better. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 13:11, July 20, 2017 (UTC)
Can I just say I'm glad Gareth didn't try to troll me by switching the citadel to night? Also thanks you guys, the pictures look great! ^_^ Now go get others to show up and comment so that there can be some kind of consensus rather than a few guys dicking around with too many options. --LiquidTalk 14:55, July 20, 2017 (UTC)
  • Extended by 1 week - As the final proposed option was literally just uploaded. Also, more people need to comment. --LiquidTalk 00:36, July 21, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - It's abundantly clear no one cares about this. I guess we'll replace it with the most recent suggestion, which, if I'm not mistaken, is this. If anyone really strongly objects, leave a complaint here. --LiquidTalk 01:29, July 28, 2017 (UTC)


Necromancer robe top


Reason: A bit bigger but most importantly no AA artefacts from rotating, which was bothering me a lot. Tried to get a straight angle with symmetry but it's difficult because the item is tilted. :/

  • Liquid made me comment Seaport --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 00:55, August 4, 2017 (UTC)
    • Delist both - Per coel --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 06:45, August 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist both - They don't feel super detailed in the modern (sixth) age, and even with the new one being from the cache it still feels sorta tilted. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 01:29, August 4, 2017 (UTC)
Yes, getting the thing any sort of straight is very difficult. Oh, and, this is clearly one of the four best-looking outfits in the entire game, along with war-chief, black ibis and master runecrafter. ;P By the way, it's taken in-game, I dunno how the fancy cache stuff works. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:34, August 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Extended by 1 week - Clearly this has turned from a nomination for replacement into a nomination for delisting. It's only fair to give the delisting discussion its own week. --LiquidTalk 22:00, August 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist image - It's pretty dull jayden 23:42, August 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist - Ugly. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 05:22, August 5, 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist - Per coel pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 12:18, August 5, 2017 (UTC)
Funnily enough this passed a nomination not even 2 months ago. I am still yet to understand what it is FI is supposed to be looking for, but at least people appear to have unanimously decided that this is not an example of it. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 20:11, August 6, 2017 (UTC)
I actually supported this nomination but I've kinda grown to find that it isn't actually that nice of an image, the colours are just plain and the only thing that is really interesting about it I guess is the design jayden 12:18, August 7, 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist - Feels redundant commenting this, but yeah it's not the nicest --File:General_Khazard_skeletal_chathead.png|20px KelseW aka General Khazard Quest.png 20:04, August 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Images will be delisted. --LiquidTalk 01:01, August 10, 2017 (UTC)

Zemouregal's fort

replacement 2 (new angle)

Reason: Bringing it up to NXT standards for images, along with a new skybox for the area. Only graphics setting lowered is draw distance to High, as Ultra causes an unloaded Ghorrock to appear in the background.

  • Support - As nominator pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 20:46, August 11, 2017 (UTC)
  • Supportish - Looks surprisingly good in NXT but the lighting is a bit off, being rather brighter when currently it's got some shades of murky green. That said, looks fairly good, aye. Maybe turn off bloom? User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 08:33, August 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Looks good... angle might be a little off but I think it's fine. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 01:23, August 13, 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment - I've added a new replacemnent nomination which changes the angle from the first replacement suggestion in an attempt to fix the angle looking weird. Will be changing my support to replacement 2 as it more closely matches the current FIMG image. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 15:50, August 13, 2017 (UTC)
I still prefer the original. Also there's a zombie in the foreground. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:14, August 14, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support replacement 2 - I don't think images need to look exactly like the one they're replacing, but I like the bit of purple sky at the top. I also don't see an issue with the zombie. --Iiii I I I 23:16, August 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - I think there's greater consensus around replacement 2, so that will be the replacement image. --LiquidTalk 03:50, August 18, 2017 (UTC)



Previous discussion: Here
Reason: Bigger, included the moon in the skybox.

  • Support - As nominator pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 13:32, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - I like that you can just about see the abyssal (orb thing?) in the top left too --Talk to Kelsey 13:35, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Nice. - Jr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 13:56, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Bigger and better AA. Shame the Slayer Tower is in the background though; maybe lower draw distance could improve it? User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:07, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
Nothing wrong with the tower in the background, it's fine without reducing graphics settings pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 15:08, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
It detracts from the subject at hand IMO. I didn't say reduce graphics settings, just lower draw distance to remove it (unless that looks terrible). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:10, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
I don't see how it detracts from the subject at hand, which is kind of ironic because you actually nominated the original image for FIMG with the tower in full view, without complaining about it detracting from the subject. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 16:12, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
I also never said it ruins the image; it's great regardless, but removing the tower could be an improvement to suggest... Stop making a fuss about it - I'm the Fusswell here :P. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:32, September 18, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - --Iiii I I I 18:29, September 20, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Unlike Kels, I don't like the abyssal orb thingy in the top left. --LiquidTalk 04:44, September 21, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Image will be replaced. --LiquidTalk 04:52, September 24, 2017 (UTC)

Polypore Dungeon

replacement 1
replacement 2
replacement 3
replacement 4

Previous discussion: here
Reason: Tagged with HTML5, offering 4 pics with different angles in 4K. All set to Ultra. Shadows are like that

  • Support 3 - I personally like the 3rd one. It shows a view of the top to the bottom. - Jr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 03:34, November 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support 3 - Would also say 3 because there's less black background above it, along with Mime's reasoning. --Talk to Kelsey 03:37, November 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Meh - I would prefer the current one, the replacements aren't bad but all rather darker. :/ User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 05:47, November 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support 3 - Per Mime pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 17:55, November 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support 3 or 4 - Either of these are fine with me.  RS AdvLogMyles Prower  Talk 17:50, November 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Image 3 will be used. --LiquidTalk 18:02, November 16, 2017 (UTC)

Chaos Elemental


Previous discussion: Here
Reason: NXT, more accurate particles, bottom not obscured, arms more seperated and visible.

  • Support - As nominator Cuxrie (talk) 10:10, December 10, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 11:15, December 11, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Soft support - I’m on phone right now, will check on pc later, but that image seems like it’s missing AA; trans and it’s choppy AF. - Jr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 12:16, December 11, 2017 (UTC)
I'm offended in that you think I would do those things Cuxrie (talk) 23:33, December 11, 2017 (UTC)
Just checked on PC and it looks perf, but why is it so small :eyes: - Jr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 02:01, December 12, 2017 (UTC)
Hmmm, how about now, it might have resized a bit when I was uploading it to imgur Cuxrie (talk) 01:18, December 14, 2017 (UTC)

  • Closed - Image will be replaced. --LiquidTalk 04:16, December 19, 2017 (UTC)



Proposed replacement

Merds took a replacement image using NXT.

Previous discussions: Original, First replacement

  • Support/Oppose/Whatever - As nominator, but I don't care either way. :p --LiquidTalk 12:09, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Support - Retook at the same angle only switching textures, does not have bloom on and the previous image has a 1px white line in the bottom (can be cropped anyway if this doesn't replace it). Meeeeerds msg 12:21, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral/soft oppose - Eh.. imo the updated yellow lava glow, even with bloom off, looks worse than pre-NXT but I also get that that's how it looks in-game now. I like the angle/crop better in the original too - I feel like there's too much space on the right in the replacement. At the moment, I support keeping the original but cropping the white line unless the replacement is retaken. Mining cape (t).png Rune14 (talk) Mining cape (t).png 14:15, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Support - NXT is god. Also I support Merds. RuneMetrics icon.png Tyler JarretTalkLight animica.png 15:21, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose - On second thought I really don't like the bloom in the replacement suggestion. It's too bright. The image looks better as it currently stands. --LiquidTalk 19:55, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Comment - I carefully took this picture without bloom :) Meeeeerds msg 23:40, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
      • Geez, my client is never that bright there. I definitely prefer the look of the original and would still oppose the replacement. --LiquidTalk 23:42, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Support - NXT version is definitely better imo, also it would have to be retaken at some point anyway when they phase out the Java client. I have also attempted to try and match the angle closer to the original with this image but the proposed replacement can work fine too. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 22:50, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose original replacement image, support Tony's above - Tony's version looks better and idk if it is some weird perception thing but better quality too? jayden 23:46, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Comment - Agreed, his has a better angle, as far as quality goes, I had everything at max except bloom off, but i see what u mean. Meeeeerds msg 23:49, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Closed - There is no consensus to replace the image at this moment and therefore will not be replaced. Meeeeerds msg 17:28, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Mage Training Arena

Description: The Mage Training Arena

Reason: Updated Digsite behind the Mage Training Arena following Update:Digsite Update & Wiki Integration

  • Support - As nominator pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 14:58, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Support - Looks the same, but better. Meeeeerds msg 23:59, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I like the old one more. The new buildings in the background are too tall and detract from the mage arena. Specifically, the roof of the arena lines up with the examination building in the background, which creates a discordant asymmetry. I don't think the mage training arena looks that good anyway and wouldn't mind if it was delisted. --LiquidTalk 01:25, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Old New
Bandos throne room statues.png
imgur link for the purpose of making it easier to compare

RSW image link:
Reason: Assuming NXT since the old was posted by FSWE.
Expiry: 21:15, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Comment - I'd support if it was centered the same. Meeeeerds msg 21:13, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Comment - If it was centered it would be perfect for replacement with NXT. Ryan PM 21:16, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Comment/Oppose? - As Ryan and Merds have said, I'd prefer to be centered. The portal in the new one is far too bright and takes away a lot of detail from it, which I'm not a fan of. Talk to Kelsey 21:20, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Oppose - If I had to choose, I'd say I like the old one more. I think both the shadows and the lighting in the new one make it look less appealing. However, I'd prefer just delisting it. The textures just look dated now, and I don't think it can be described as one of the best images we have anymore. It certainly doesn't show the current state of RS graphics. Ι³ex undique 23:41, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Closed - There's no consensus for replacing the featured image with the up to date NXT version. However as per RS:IMAGE, Java images should be replaced with NXT versions, which in turn will make the current featured image an older version of the file and consequently delisted. Talk to Kelsey 19:52, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Mogre Camp

Old New

Description: The habitat of the mogres.
Reason: This was replaced on 30 May 2020 and no one did the replacement nomination.

  • Neutral - The bottom 80% is colorful, which is nice. But there's not much going on in it and it doesn't really look impressive when shrunk down to this size. I honestly think it may be better to just delist, we have much better landscape pictures. Ι³ex undique 00:37, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Delist - blah blah sentimental stuff etc, but honestly the 2009 version looks better to me with more vibrant colours and realistic shadows. And that's not even from any nostalgia, that's just from plain old comparing the two pictures and looking at the pixels (and I've seen plenty of reefs in my time). At this point might as well delist it (unless a more vibrant re-take of the image can be taken, of course. I don't really play rs3 anymore so what do I know about the possibilities. All I have is two eyes and an opinion). βˆ’ Joeytje50 talk 00:43, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Delist - Don't like the fact you can see the void over the rocks, even if it is blue. The previous image had shorter render distance which gave the illusion you were actually underwater, whereas this picture breaks that illusion very easily. Like Joey said, the vibrancy of this landscape has been lost over the years and isn't as impressive anymore. Talk to Kelsey 01:05, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Delist - While I really do appreciate all the work they put in for this throwaway area for a subsection of a quest, it's not as impressive as it was back in the day, and the newer image just shows more of the empty space we couldn't see as easily then either. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 01:15, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Delist - Not a void fan, agree with the other comments. Smithing.pngAescopalus talkCrafting.png 01:17, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
