. . . I found it last night as I was finishing up some lights on my roof!
It's funny how small skiffs of ice and snow resting upon the tiles of my roof, lit by the glow of soft white LED lights, just looked like an awesome stairway to heaven, the moon glowing in the distance. For as much as I complain about putting up Christmas decorations, there are some really cool moments to be had.
When Celestia is finally released, I hope there is a stairway that's awesome that leads up to it. I love the look of dark zones with lots of stars in them (like Marleybone). One of my past favorites in the game called Everquest was The Plane of Justice. For the most part the Plane of Justice was a maze-like network of jail cells, but at the end of the zone there was this huge room that sat inside of a giant sphere that had moving stars that floated around it like you were in a planetarium. Here's a link to a picture I found of that zone. You ended up spending a lot of time in that particular room as you would slowly heal back up after most likely facing a heart-wrenching defeat in one of the challenges placed before you.
Man that game was tough.
Well, that's enough reminiscing for me. I just wanted to share that photo I took last night and dream about Celestia a little bit. What do you think it will be like?
