  • About this "Controversial" loading screen

    Hello

    In the last few days I've read many "complains" of people in the global chat of my server about the 4 elins loading screen.

    Now, since I'm interested in these controversies I actually want to hear your arguments about this loading screen and why many people find it inappropriate.

    I won't say my personal opinion about this as I have mixed feeling about it.

    Please don't take this thread as some sort of drama-bait and please keep it civil.
    This is the loading screen I'm talking about in case it wasn't clear enough:


    Edit:
    Also please don't say things like "It's obvious" or "You're blind" or "You're playing(or you are) dumb" or things like that,different people see things differently.

  • ?! Ok, what's the problem...I see four girls with (max) B-cup in a one piece swimsuit.... showing off (and someone possibly drowning in the sea.... )

    gosh, are people that prudish these days?

    Anyhow, I like that loading screen :)

  • Dunno, i guess they are hating elin's :(

    I just only think that elin's are kawaiii that's all.


    And if people look right to that art screen picture this are way better elin's then we have now. :elin40:

    If that's not appropriate then they should see the NA loading screen: :D

    Anyway obviously the swimsuit was made a tad bit sexier than it usually looks (I mean sukumizus in general), but then again these elins aren't even looking loli enough.
    That link doesn't work....?

  • Uhm I don't think it can be considered as controversial as ours.

    The view distance if far further,and the angle of view is in the middle(contrary to the vert low angle of view we have),none of the elins are directly looking at the viewer either so there's less involvement in that regard too.

  • So, if you imagine that "controversial" loading screen is made from the viewing perspective of a Popori, what then? Are all those furrballs perverts since birth?!

    Guess people are just salty because too many Elin loading screens this time... Dunno, where was the contest entry topic again?

  • The poses of the elins and the camera angle is pretty sexualized, which makes it hard to play this game with other people around, especially if they are strangers. Looks like some little anime girl soft porn. Wish there was a way to remove or disable these loading screens for those of us who find them inappropriate or want to play in a SFW environment.
  • I mean, Elin has to be the most played race on TERA EU i guess, people using the "animation advantage" thing as an excuse to play it, which is true for some people. But when i see the kind of roleplay people do with their Elins, the costumes that make them sexualized af, the fanfictions, the various porn / hentai fanarts people are making about Elins... It kinda turns the "Elins are for pedos" meme into something more serious than a simple meme.

    About the loading screen itself, what to say... You gotta please the mass. Since there is still many people into this sort of roleplay etc... BS (i even suspect some people to legit just play to stare at their Elins with maybe some nude modes or whatnot.) i guess the mass is pleased. The people complaining about it are healthy minded, good to see that people are standing against this BS.
  • Can I just ask... who even gives a fk?
    It's just a loading screen, calm down jesus. If a simple loading screen with a slight touch of sexyness can make you feel uncomfortable or bothered then you're either 12yo or retarded because, again, it's not intended for anything besides being a loading screen for a contest.

    About that, this didn't catch my attention first.

    Disabling DepthOfField in S1Engine.ini will disable loading screens for some reason. If you're desperate enough and you don't care if you lose some graphics quality (distant objects won't be blurred and you'll also lose FXAA) then DepthOfField=False is your friend.
