I can't find the original post either, Tharoc m'lad, so here is the most recent-dated version of the Orcen Watchtower from my files!

Hope that's what you were looking for....

Use the force, Luke.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

Actually, when I try to save it, it comes up as a 'PNG', whatever the hell that is. Anyway, I can't seem to open it. Any suggestions?

Shouldn't really happen... Doesn't here. You might try to simply rename it to JPG, as it actually was uploaded as a JPG. Or make a screenshot of it, paste it into Paint and crop it...

Thanks, Arti. I'll give it a whirl.


EDIT: AH-HA! Success. Thanks again.

Good to hear, Tharoc :D

I also love this scenery - the path leading up, the clouds, only the tower still looks a bit improvised, so I hope you can try to work on that a bit, Judy. But the path for example will be easy to reuse in Santhworld when the player walks up to the tomb of Norgerinth :)

I do have this picture with and without tower, I believe, so we can probably make everyone happy - or at least those who like the style.

If you can dig it out without the tower, Judy, feel free to mail it to me - then I can include it in Santhworld already.

So....can this go OFF the Unfinished Tales list, then?  Since both you and Tharoc have it?  (blinks sweetly)

Methinks the Sage is padding his list to make a point, here!  (grins cheekily at Artimidor)

Maybe for the version w/out the tower, the tower in the distance should also be removed?
Just my two sans. But i love the picture, Judy, wish I could steal it for the Ring!

Don't worry about removing that second tower - it's pretty small and if the picture size is reduced to show it on Santhworld, you would hardly see it. Besides, I might use crop(s) of that picture where that part perhaps can't even be seen. We'll see.

As for removing it from the Unfinished Tales: I still think - personally - that the stones óf the tower are somewhat blurry and don't look very realistic (see my comments above already). Compare it with the small additional entrance you have - here the stones look much better pronounced, even though they are much smaller. I miss that somewhat at the main tower, the style is somewhat conflicting in my point of view. This also makes it harder to zoom in (should we use it e.g. in Santhworld), because the picture gets at the moment only better in detail if you zoom out. I guess it shouldn't be too difficult to fix that, and I could try my hand on it as well, if you want.

P.S. Thanks for the Flash cabinet - it has all arrived safely, now I only need the time to get to it, which can last a while (perhaps even until Christmas). The main problem will definitely be to make the detailed text readable for everyone, which is not guaranteed if we use the text as graphic approach, however. So I need to think on how to handle that best.

But the important thing is that the material is available now whenever I can get to it! :)

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
