It has been pointed out in a few places that Relto bears many similarities to Myst. Here are a few I have noticed myself. Feel free to point out ones I may have missed and discuss the implecations here. Relto is by far a smaller island than was Myst, but the similarities are unmistakable:

1) The Relto dock is in the same position as the sunken ship on Myst.
2) The Relto hut is in the same postion as the library on Myst.
3) The Relto tree is in the same position as the sequoia tree on Myst.
4) The Relto spiral island is in the same position as the clock tower island on Myst.
5) The Relto Bahro pillars are in the same position as the pillars around the pool with the model ship on Myst.
6) The Relto solar design island is in the same position as the space ship on Myst.

I'm not sure why Yeesha would model Relto after the scene of such pain and betrayal for her family. Perhaps it is simply "coming full circle" so to speak. Perhaps she wishes us all to remember Myst, lest such mistakes be repeated.

The rocket ship island on Myst was North West to the library. The sun dial island is a several meters in front of the hood.

[spoiler=Yeeshas Journey]In one of her speeches, I forget if it's at the beginning or end of the journey, Yeesha does say that she originally made this as a gift for her family. "I even put the library in the same place" she says, or something similar. Anyways, she admitted that she modeled it after Myst.[/spoiler]

8) The mountain behind the hut is in the same position as the tower mountain behind the library in Myst

And one thing not available in the current Beta yet.

[spoiler]The Relto page for the Imager places it in your Relto near where the underground message viewer was in Myst.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]From what I remember, the imager is placed where the first level box thingy was on Myst, not the underground message viewer... especially because we can't go underground on Relto, yet. ?? [/spoiler]

The proportions are a bit off, but it is vaguely close.

I've always thought it was more accurate that the rocket ship would be following the trail behind the library. Does anyone remember how you had to go behind the library (sort of) to get to the rocket ship? The bridge and stuff is in the place of the rocket ship only if you took the bridge going to the rocket ship and rotated it (from the start of the bridge) 90 degrees away from the library. The bridge in the original Myst was relatively parallel to the library path, not perpindicular like the sundial bridge is today.

[spoiler]Well, sorta... The imager used to be roughly where the underground imager would be, in front of the docks and close to the tree. However, you could only get it there if you managed to get it during offline prime (something that was possible, but not through normal play) and maybe in Until Uru if an admin gave it to you (not sure about that one.. can't remember)[/spoiler]

Also

I never saw the whole Relto/Myst parallel until it was thrust upon me here when the new island came out. I always wondered where that path behind the library went and I will be very disappointed if it never gets any use. When I first played, I imagined I would find a page that would slope into a small cave under Relto or maybe a whole new island in the distance.

Not out yet, but

9) The fireplace is on the same hexagonal side as on Myst Island.

The island in the approximate location of the clock tower is shaped like a gear.

Just noticed that one a few nights ago - funny how you you can run by something over and over in Uru before you notice it.

lol I didn't notice that. I guess you could also say the the 4 pillars are in about the same position that the box things (the ones with the symbols in them that you use to raise the ship) were on Myst
