Question about world terrain/mapsFollow

I haven't stepped foot into anything since becoming upset the first month of the game's release. My question is straightforward--

Have they or do they plan to ever alter the landscape of the world of Eorzea that was already created so that it is not all copy/paste terrain over and over? I remember wandering through the endless narrow gridania forest and I could literally see the graphic tiles repeat over and over again. The same spiral leading up to the top of every repeating hill side.. Sometimes I'd even get confused for a minute because I would zone out from boredom and come across the same stream with the rock on either side and the same group of fish in it. I'm a big explorer so for me, it was hard to bare with the ridiculously high hopes I had for FFXIV. Smiley: frown

Just wondering if that has been covered in official forums or what not yet. thanks.

Yes, it's been confirmed on the official forums that they -are- doing a full redesign! :)

thanks for the response! This is good to hear. Though I am next to completely disillusioned with Square-Enix right now and they should have never merged I try to keep the hope alive...

Their business model of staying in an ivory tower for years and years refusing to listen to the voices of their fans I feel is what led to all of this. That's bad business. I hope someone within there is starting to listen to someone other than only those who hold the purse strings.

Just so someone doesn't have to click the link:

You previously mentioned that you guys are working on redesigning the areas. Are you more focused on changing the geography or the design?

Yoshida:
Changes will be made to both the geography and the design of the areas. Some areas will be changed rather drastically, so I'd love if you all could discuss how you think the changes will be made while you're all looking forward to it.
