tl;dr

You seem to not comprehend just how much work this "toggle would be" and how little "income" it would bring it.

Yes it might bring in SOME money. but i can 100% guarantee it WON'T bring in as much income as a steady stream of constant, high quality content updates, that come every 2-3 months.

And ofcourse my favourite quote:

Original message details are unavailable.
Not sure if anyone has ever gone into the exact details as to why this isn't viable, regardless, I'll give it a shot :)

Although the HD update was released a year or so after the version that is OSRS, it took an incredibly large team (that was out sourced) to convert and test every model in the game. A toggle wouldn't be possible either unfortunately, this is because to get extra detail into the new models all other models had to be scaled up to match. If a toggle was possible, it would increase the amount of work us artists would have to do as we'd have to make two versions of every model.

A toggle wouldn't be enough to convince some players who do not want it as it would certainly stop actual content updates for a while. The polling system isn't just about what players want in game, but where they want us to focus our efforts and an incredibly large update with no new content isn't something I see going down too well.

Of course, I've no idea what the future holds, just hoping to shed a bit more light on the topic :)


Couldn't agree more.

Well said :)

*This actually brings RS3 players, brings players who quitted both games and also brings more new players because game simply looks better and more appealing with 2011 models.

How does bringing a player from RS3 who pays to OSRS make a profit? That doesn't generate revenue in fact you probably damaged it because they went from a game with a lot of mtx to one with just bonds you would lose out on a lot of money with this.


Exactly.

It seems more of a loss IMO.
