Great choice, Emor! Thank you for starting my new year off right. :)

Thanks Charura!

But...what IS that, some early WIP version of the Cleft?

Looks like someone has added in the ladders and bridges that would probably have been there when it was lived in.

I came across this old post by kaelisebonrai with descriptions by RIUM+ of some very early Uru images, including the above Cleft image. However, the links to the images no longer work as they are - they need a small change. So here's the post with working images.

kaelisebonrai wrote:
That's what I'd call broken - I've purchased the game, I shouldn't need to "fix" it by using another copy i'd have to purchase to have legally. =P

Anyways.. here's the real reason for this post -

I asked RIUM+ about the screenshots... (RIUM+ being one of the few people who was there in Choru, among other things, for a long time)
First, a disclaimer,
<kaelis> rium: mind if i post this on the forums?
<RIUM+> Sure. But make sure that they know that I am trying to remember things that're nearly nine years old now so I'm probably wrong in some of these
<RIUM+> So don't quote me TOO heavily on this :P

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> First one... that's an oooold build of Ahnonay. That was taken before the age had been finished. Like, well and truly before it was finished.


[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> The one of the hood with all the people? That's Plasma 1 content. That's the old avatars.
<kaelis> indeed.
<kaelis> i noticed the /tree/ symbol below the fountain.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> The cleft was one of the many many iterations of the cleft that they went through... that one had many more ladders and bridges throughout it that they removed when they added in the windmill puzzle.


[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> Eder Kemo's shot is from when Eder Kemo was first released. iirc that's Steve Ogden's avatar since the age was mostly his work... I think
<RIUM+> That's from when they were transitioning to Plasma 2's engine
<RIUM+> Eder Kemo was an age designed for testing the abilities of Plasma as a tech demo age...
<RIUM+> To make sure that they had all the features that they wanted etc
<RIUM+> When those screenshots were taken it was a little further along in the transition to the current Plasma engine...
<RIUM+> The shadows and lighting at that point was a little different and I remember them tweaking that a bit

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> Library shot... not much I can say about that; not too much has changed since then. It probably was from when there was Journeys throughout the city as well

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> Gahreesehn control room... don't recognise that shot; may be new.
<kaelis> not new
<kaelis> note the imager >.>
<RIUM+> That image isn't still on the imager? >_>
<RIUM+> I have no idea what's "current" any more >.<
<RIUM+> I thought that was displayed once you "fixed" Gahreesehn?
<kaelis> nope
<kaelis> ..uh
<kaelis> fixed?
<kaelis> you don't fix gahreesen =P

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> Great Tree... that shot's an ancient one iirc
<RIUM+> DIRT days.
<RIUM+> I've long had a theory that that tree model was from before/soon after Cyan acquired HeadSpin... it has a look about it that's very distinctive of the stuff when Plasma was running Glide
<RIUM+> But I don't know

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Image

<RIUM+> Cleft shot... can't remember when that one was taken. Before they put up the fence though.

Thanks for the great wallpaper, Charura. And, thanks for tracking down the background on it, Marein.

Sorry, won't have anything for March 'til the 3rd or so.
I'll be starting a series of images taken from explorer-created Ages.

Otherwise, others are welcome to fill in if you feel inclined.

Beginning a series of images from Explorer-created Ages, this month is from R'Oshanhnin Korvahkhn, a very large piece of work by Calena with some lovely areas.

But this Age was chosen because it also contains content contributions from our recently departed Wamduskasapa: several books, and American Indian lore...including a recipe book! RIP, Wam.

Nicely done Emor.....I'm hoping you can continue this thread beyond everything Almak started...I have to step back as my life has progressed to the point where I see a future beyond Myst and URU...Have fun everyone!!!

Dear Charura, sorry to hear you won't be able to continue with our pattern of creating calendars in alternating months...I've sure appreciated your contributions.

While I'm truly glad your life has progressed, I'm sure most of us have always seen a future beyond Myst and URU - while we are also able to honor, and contribute to, and participate in the legacy we have here.

That said, without Charura I'm not able to muster the time nor the inspiration to do monthly calendars. And frankly, after four years I've nearly exhausted unique images I can derive from the existing URU Ages. So, within this year I too will be stepping aside from making calendar pages.

Calling all inspired photographers to fill in, please!
