I think we have decided on the name of the new game and that it will be more of an MMOFPS than an MMORPG. We are really focusing on the gameplay but also want to have a marked improvement in the graphics.
I am working on some calculations for the surface map (starting literally from the ground up on the graphics). Turns out that you can start picking the ground up around 30 km which equates to a 600 km radius of ground data that has to be defined. If we use level 7 data for Venus that gives us 3.41 pixels per km or 0.3 km per pixel resolution at 30 km.
