OK, I was a bit too thorough freeing the solar sails. Some mutinous gnomes flew off with them. The gnomes and sails have been brought to heel. I have taken down the previous versions of the files.

Shorah, Explorers!

Here is a link to a version of Jo'nae Hood that supersedes the previous iterations. I have made simple, but more-naturalistic, lighting. So, the "flat" look is addressed.

ametist has provided beautiful lightning artwork that I have animated.

FYI, since people will want to ride the Corsair together I have docked it and rigged it to fly in the Sprite Gallery in an upcoming update to that age. I'm thinking of having the Corsair visit the planet with the dark tower of the Gorgas story. The initial release to DI will be for testing.

So I wonder, what would people think of making this modified Jo'nae Hood available on Deep Island and UAM?

Usually, I would only let the original author provide updates for an age. Is this update clearly enough in the spirit of the age that we can make an exception? Or should we instead upload this as a new age, similar to what we did with some of the "restoration" ages?

I personally don't have a lot of stake in this discussion, but I do want to make it clear that we don't just let anyone overwrite "your" age, so we have to tread carefully here. On UAM, it is easy to just offer multiple different versions (though one of them will be considered the "latest" and thus installed by default); on the Shard, only one version of the age can be provided so we have to make a choice (unless we duplicate the entire age with its own sequence prefix and filename and everything).
I prefer e-mails to "diafero arcor de" (after adding the at and the dot) over PMs.

When it's over 100 degrees in Texas, this is the age to explore!

All of Tiki’s restorations, I think, have been in the direction of fixing bugs and improving visuals, respecting the author’s intentions as much as can be desumed.
That said, I think I’d be a bit more comfortable with the cautious approach of continuing the Restoration pattern, and make it a separate age.

In the hypothesis that an author gave the approval to do so, would it be complicate to add the restored version as the latest and retire the Restoration one?
