Ah, back in the days when whispers of the new MMO "Rapture" were met on resistant ears in the XI community. I can't believe it's been five years already that I first say that.

Pretty sure it's just a tech demo but that'd be a beautiful city.

Hopefully it is. But that whole city could've been scrapped with how old that is. Or it could've been an original plan for Limsa Lominsa.

That's what I was thinking too. Unfortunately, I like it more than the current design. ^.^; I think it'd be a little too epic a town though, everyone would start there.

Hah, I think it's fascinating to think how at the time most of us were still enjoying a ToAU-free FFXI, And how most of our aspirations for solo play, easier content and less time sinks that we had for Rapture would be implimented in FFXI before we knew it.

yeah the game engine went from the White engine to Crystal tools engine, so i think when that happend they might of updated the game engine prompting a wipe and a new name for the newer engine.
but still, this city was obviously built, why not keep it and use it for later? its way more amazing than any of the current cities (no trash on 14, just pointing out the obvious).

I'd take that over the sh*t for a city LL is.

Oh and that's not real, SE doesn't implement random flying dragons. They're too cool.

Isn't Crystal Tools just the new name for the White Engine?

yep, but i couldnt remember if they said they had to revamp the engine or not, if they never touched the engine, just renamed it, then theres even less of a reason to not use this city lol

This was just a tech demo they put together for the Xbox 360 at E3 2005 - building on the announce that FFXI would be coming on that platform. Since it's running on Xbox hardware - likely there is little to no connection with FFXIV. As the years have gone on, the original purpose of this video has been forgotten.

It's also worthy to note that SE showed a FFVII tech demo at E3 2005 - another example of where a tech demo doesn't equal actual product.
