Top of archway to the Palace Alcove

Postby philipgr » Fri Jul 04, 2014 9:31 am

Good evening

Please accept my appologies if this is not the right place to post this query. Last week I was using flymode in my Uru CC installation when I noticed a rather odd thing. The archway at the top of the stairs from Tokotah Plaza to the Palace Alcove has what appears to be a walkway on top of it. At the Palace end there is what appears to be a doorway. It is different from the two windows on either side of it. The otherside leads to a rock wall. I am wondering if Cyan was intending this to be a route to the Guild Hall or the districts on the otherside of the island that they had in their clay model.

Does anybody have any info on this or a view point?

Regards
Philip

Shorah philipgr,

I don't know if his thoughts reflect canon or not, but Larry LeDeay has researched the buildings in Ae'gura pretty thoroughly. He's called this feature a guard walkway. You can read more about this here (scroll to the last picture in the post).

I found a picture somewhere in the middle of the post. I will have to see how to to change my KI's gamma settings. The pictures are fantastic. I did not find any comments on it. Maybe I missed it. It took me awhile to open all the pics. I will go through it again. I am wondering about the 'Guard Walkway' idea. Maybe the Palace balcony that overlooks the Takotah plaza was also a guard look out.

Have a great weekend.

Regards
Philip

P.S. Old man frost is on his way here to me. Cape Town is freezing. 15 degrees C here is cold. 10/12C is freezing. 28/30C here is lovely weather. I am cold. He He.

Yeah, there are a LOT of nice places you can't see in Ae'Gura. Most of the time, they are unfinished, but they are still worth a shot.

Better than flymode, I'd suggest installing Chacal's awesome challenge. It opens a lot of nice places in the city. Not all of them, but it lets you walk through most gates without the need of flymode.
(This bridge isn't included, though).
