larryf58, I read in the Book of Atrus when he first saw the cavern he said it was 6mi. wide and 10mi broad with a huge island a mile or more wide with 2 columns more than a mile high( Myst Reader pg 87)
hope this helps with your mapping

The Books are notoriously unreliable for canon information, sadly.

Apparently Ae’gura was scaled from its actual size (in PotS you were supposed to see it only from the Ferry Terminal, and the Kadish Gallery occupies the space behind all the doors in the Canyon Alley), so while not ‘a mile high’, the central stalagmite could actually be taller than what it seems.

That's true if you try to put everything in on a horizontal plane. Staircases could be used to change the elevations of the spaces behind the doors, like the way they made the gallery taller by lowering the floor on the inside.

Since that stalagmite ridge is quite tall, there's a lot of space both above and below the gallery. If you get Cyan's approval, I see no reason why the shops can't be set up like a stack of books. It's not like the rest of us have the faintest idea what's behind those doors!

Something I've noticed and mention in the tours I conduct or help conduct, is that the D'ni built more underground and vertically than on the surface horizontally. The palace building extends all the way down to the waterline at least, and there may well be parts of it below the palace alcove and into the rock beyond it to the south and west. Tokotah 1 and Tokotah 2 also have a considerable amount of structure below the surface; you can see that from the ferry docks in the case of Tokotah 2. In the Kahlo Bar, there's a doorway facing south behind some rubble. It could either be into another room below Tokotah Alley, or it could be a tunnel corridor into Tokotah 1.

So think vertical. Cyan did.

I've saved the latest version of your map onto my phone so that I can admire it whenever. You've done an amazing job so far!

Thanks!

It eventually hit a roadblock, though, since there's very little information about what there is and where it is. There's a good chance it won't get any farther than this, or at least not until some of the fan content projects are ready for inclusion into the game. Intangibles and DIRT are two ongoing projects that could affect my map, but Tweek and Chloe can't say anything until Cyan approves.

Now, if anyone at Cyan were to read this and wanted to send me information I could use to make the map better, that would be wonderful. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for it, though. :lol:
