From the Light House

This is not a postcard, or at least, not just a postcard, even though a full-frame screenshot is included, and a nice screenshot it is:


But this is not about the screenshot. You see, I’ve tried numerous times over the years to get a decent video of what it looks like when you jump off the lighthouse on Atarexia’s island. To no avail.

I don’t run the lighthouse quest very often, maybe once a year, so I don’t get a lot of chances to get this right. And I don’t want it badly enough to run the quest solely to get the video.

Meaning, there is always lots of time between each attempt, making it easier to forget lessons learned and repeat mistakes. Twice I forgot to put on feather fall – twice! – although the resultant video capture of a helpless plummet was entertaining in its own way.

Or I forget to turn on video capture. Or something. I always fail to get it right.

Until now.

This is still not perfect, I’d meant to dial back the point of view and shoot it first person, but it will have to do. At least it exists, even if not in a perfect state.

But anyway, here it is. Or perhaps I should say, here it will be, just as soon as youtube finishes processing it.

Not really worth the wait, huh?

But at last, it is done. Check that off the list!

  1. you can do all that in real life, just bungie jump from a hot air ballon or a real light house…. all without pants or with Hawaiian grass skirts. πŸ˜‰

  2. Shin thinks the view from up there at night is one of the best visuals in the game. I think he may just be right about that.

What do you think?
