I'v red an interview made to Viktor Bocan in which he told how the new graphic improvements won't fit on the old islands of the game. So we're gonna get one new big island with a completely different graphic... is that right?
Damn BI why can't you upgrade all the three islands? It doesnt' make too much sense to have 3 island with a "2001 graphic engine" and one island with a brand new one, does it?
So please all the guys who wanna see all the 3 old islands restyled with the new graphics post here

One reason they might not do it is because they new texture may require more processing and that would affect performance on everything that's existed until now. That would really rock the boat!

Don't think is a hardware issue since the 100 square Km island with the high detailed textures will push hardware more. Anyway maybe that would take a lot of time.

Can't they simply update the old libraries of the game in order to update the houses and trees?
I wonder who's gonna play on the old islands after this new addon Posted Image

Yeah, I agree with Wiggum. At first there will be alot of mission on the new island, then people will get tired of that one and automatically all island will be equally used...

Well I must say the island looks GREAT!!! Yes the other islands wont be used in very often but this new island had they not upgraded the engine it still would be good, large towns, new concept in the game, and the landscape. The islands aren't being upgraded because they dont want to its just a huge task like if you wrote a book on biblical kings and you were told to change it to a sci-fi love story it would be a huge task thats what these guys have to basically do.
