There have been many fan videos produced on Until Uru shards which used the Yeesha avatar. It should not be a stretch for her to already be available without a glitch in Live except for the hologram.


What I'm saying is, it's entirely possible that they do have a Yeesha avatar available, but they instead (for whatever story purpose) chose to use the static version instead. This caused problems, because this was never meant to be an avatar in the first place- and hence they encountered problems.

I'm sure the hologram was intentional, as Yeesha today (as seen in Myst V) looks very different from Yeesha did originally in Uru (which is why the ending to the Journey has been altered so she remains a hologram the entire time, rather than becoming solid at the end). So I'm sure Cyan used the hologram to bypass what would be a clear breach of continuity as they haven't backported the Yeesha avatar from Myst V yet.

Cyan has custom avatars for both "Yeesha" and "YeeshaNoGlow".

The use of regular holographic Yeesha was more than likely intentional.

(02/21 00:49:06) Vixen Online: Was it just this hood?
(02/21 00:49:12) Lobo: Yes, this hood.
(02/21 00:49:13) ireenquench: I am sorry, can the eye witnesses explain again what they saw?
(02/21 00:49:15) Ichabod L.: And it also stayed later than she did.
(02/21 00:49:18 ) Lobo: On top of the fountain.
(02/21 00:49:20) Vixen Online: What happened
(02/21 00:49:28 ) Almak: Yeesha appeared at the linking point.
(02/21 00:49:29) Tallon Enx: She appeared over the fountain...
(02/21 00:49:33) Lobo: A projection of Yeesha appeared after the vigil ended.
(02/21 00:49:37) Almak: Walked a bit.
(02/21 00:49:47) Almak: Then she disappeared and reappeared on top of the fountain.
(02/21 00:49:53) ResEng M.Dogherra: Alright, all this mystical stuff down here weirds me out, shorah guys
(02/21 00:49:57) Vixen Online: Shall we chant now?
(02/21 00:50:00) Almak: Shorah.
(02/21 00:50:02) Tallon Enx: :)
(02/21 00:50:02) peni: bye
(02/21 00:50:02) Ichabod L.: Shorah.
(02/21 00:50:07) Lobo: Shorah, Dogherra
(02/21 00:50:07) Thend: Thanks Dogherra
(02/21 00:50:12) Rose: Shorah, ResEng
(02/21 00:50:15) Azador: I believe it was just static the first time she appeared, right?
(02/21 00:50:19) ireenquench: Shorah M.Dogherra[/spoiler]
He didn't even try to answer anyone's questions, and he sure seemed in a hurry to get out of there. Oh yeah, the DRC knows something, even if they won't admit it. :|

I can't beleive it. I stayed up all night to attend this gathering and was in for the full haul. Man was I tired after it but had I known that she was going to show soon after the official finish time I would have stayed on. Oh why, oh why did it happen this way.

Yeah I'm just shocked and sad that I missed her. :cry:

Sounds to me like the classic "You didn't see anything" situation. If the DRC ignores this, then something strange is definitely afoot.

I added Doghera to my buddies list...and then asked him a little later what the deal was:

He stated (although I don't have chat log :) pretty much the same thing-

Me- "Is there an official response from the DRC on this sighting yet?"
ResEng-"I'm staying away from all this mystic stuff...it freaks me out."

Me-"So I take that as a no?"
ResEng-"No, it's a No Comment :)"

Me-"Thanks RAWA ;)"

So, so far nothing from the DRC...

The DRC probably has her locked up somewhere: How else would they routinely get books altered to become instanced? First Delin, now Tsogal.

Remember, the DRC is being dodgy about Yeesha's influence on the books they've released. So they have something to hide, and keeping Yeesha locked away forcing her to Write would definitely be something to hide.

So the whole holographic appearance thing was a cry for help.

((By the way, totally OOC - I'm convinced that the appearance in sil_oh_wet's Bevin by three ResEngs shortly before Yeesha's appearance was no coincidence.

Particularly since one of the ResEngs did not appear in the Age Player's list... I think perhaps it was a dry run. :) And, maybe, an attempt to cajole us into staying longer in the 'hood until they were ready.))

And so it begins... :)

Wow.

OOC: It seems pretty obvious to me that this is something that was thrown together with zero notice by Cyan, who must have been really excited that there was such a turnout, and were just itching to do something in response to it. The sheer fact that it did happen, with so little notice, and so soon after going live is a fantastic sign. They have an engine and framework that is capable of creating events such as this on zero notice, and they're plainly very willing to engage with the community this way.

I'm picturing a bunch of guys at Cyan HQ now sweating and scrambling to create a proper Yeesha avatar, much sooner than they thought they'd have to. ;)

I don't know, I think I'd probably agee with this to an extent.

I'm sure that Cyan has stuff like this ready. However, I'm guessing that they didn't plan to use it just yet, but, as Timbo says, saw how amazing the turnout was and thought "heck, just use it now!".

I think this is actually a good point. 'Tis kind of a coincidence.

The snow in Delin definitely brought people in (I rarely log in during the week, but did so yesterday for the snow), but I can quite see it being used as a distraction.

Congratulations!

I would, however, be very interested to learn if something like this could be pulled off without blanketing the internet with your intentions.

Do you innocently tell your parents about the Santa Trap you set up downstairs, or do they find out about it on their own?

Why?

As explorers in the cavern, it is perfectly reasonable that when away, we can use the internet to communicate with each other. There's no chance an event like this could ever be organised without communication - why doesn't the internet count?
