Can anyone confirm/deny this article on the game supposedly massively reusing giant patches of areas? I rarely believe anything i read on the site in question since they tend to be fairly biased and everyone who comments on it just talks about how furious the particular article makes them without actually having played the game. But it would be nice to know how much truth may be behind it.

http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2010/09/05/final-fantasy-xiv-nothing-but-copy-paste/

I'm stuck waiting for the ps3 release so I can't experience it myself to see.

Next time, let's slap a NSFW on that please. The article isn't bad, but the adverts are.

Sorry about that, block them all myself or would have thought twice.

Definitely BS. For one, those "copy-pasted" areas are all the same area. For two, that site posts nothing but total BS. I took the liberty of reading a few articles. Every line is designed purely to make people hate the subject, not because the argument is correct, just for the purpose of making people hate the subject.

Well to be fair there are a few places in Gridania's forest that look real similar. Walk from the east gate of Grid all the way to Thalasan and you will notice undeniably similar areas, most notably the parts of the forest where you go left to stay on the path or go right to go up a different path. I passed areas like this 3 times on my way to Thal, and they looked the same each time.

What?!?!? Some areas are similar looking?
That's it, i'm canceling my pre-order!

/sarcasm off.

That site is so full of BS, there should be a warning before you enter it.

Sankakucomplex = full of half-witted partial information. Which is the most dangerous kind of information there is.

I think the copy and paste are's mean the Instances you do during quests, its mainly just you during the quest no mobs other than the ones that are in the instance and no other player characters as far as i've seen,

If I was some sort of super hacker that site wouldn't exist anymore. Talking about how much you hate a game or think its stupid is one thing, but blatant misinformation just ****** me off. I just spent 4 hours romping around the world today and this is NOT the case. Sure I could screen a couple areas that looked similar every now and then, but that's hardly a copy+paste.

I mean in WoW every cave uses one of two predefined layout, until you get to outland which uses a different predefined layout but I never heard ******** about that.

Actually it's party right, in the case of the forest zone outside the forest starter city, the map is very copy/paste of the same 2-3 type of 'room' and 'ramps'. Its nothing horrible though, Ive been to most other zones and they are nothing like that, very unique mostly.

Sounds like the opinion of someone that's just played that zone.

They took one of the images out of that article, supposedly showing the same town layout being used over and over again for different towns or something.

I don't know anything about the towns/cities/etc in the game yet so I'm guessing they ended up actually being different pictures of the same town otherwise I can't see why they took them down.

they don't have any pictures of that zone, the were complaining about the Limsa Lominsa area, also after their fiasco of "4 hours logged in means 0 exp" they aren't worth listening to for anything.

After the last to do that was caused by that site, I'm surprised people are willing to take a word the site says seriously.
