Ok, I was busy field testing the nearly-complete new version of the Improved Tracks in conjunction with the Revision 2 DLS (by the way, it's EXTREMELY close to final release.....I just gotta nail down some volume bugs in the victory fanfare and I think it'll be ready for prime time.  I mean it this time!! :D), in the area when you're in the dream sequence when Laguna's in Winhill.  I stopped into one of the houses and the most peculiar thing catches my eye.

There's a REAL WORLD MAP ON THE WALL!!  No, not of their world.  OURS!!  You can clearly see Africa, Russia, the Americas, etc....What the heck is it doing there?!

-edit-
For those of you in disbelief, I've got a Screenshot of it, located here, curteousy of Mirex's upload script that he let me use.

You can see the map to the left of Laguna's head in the shot.

Thanks.  It'll be on its way in a few minutes.

Oh, yeah, and you should know that it's in bmp form, 'cause the jpg converters on my comp are Craptastic at best.

Anyway, Shinra Inc. gets the honors on this one.

Dude, I just sent it to Shinra's address and I got a Return-to-Sender error.....

And I do have to get off soon....... :isee:

Alright, cool.  While its still a .bmp file, I really don't have the ability to convert it to jpg, but the file size is still only 900k.

Well, then again, at the sound of it, it still sounds huge.

Once its uploaded, I'll go edit the original post to show the screenshot.

Man..whoever put that in there should have gotten fired. They obviously couldn't find a world map of ff8, so they put together a half-assed world map and placed it in there. You'd think it'd be easier to use a ff8 world map instead of a map of the "real world. I bet the guy who put it there said: "Hmm...I wonder if the Americans will notice it?"

Here you go. Picture courtesy of Nayoung, and special thanks goes to Mirex for the hosting  :)

Edit - the picture Nayoung meant was Nubuo Uematsu I guess (The one of the left hand side of Cloud, wearing black shirt)

That's not who I pictured Ol' Nubuo to look like.  Shows what I know, I guess! :P

Anyway, my best theory about the world map picture is that, as we are all used to seeing maps of our world on walls either at school or peoples houses, we'd see that and blow right by it, due to our being used to seeing maps like that on the wall.

And yes, that happened to me all the other time I've gone in there.  However, the last time I did, I don't know, something just clicked and my mind started to realize that it was amiss from what should have been in that world.

-edit-
Heh, didn't notice I used the wrong tense for "picture" in the first sentence!  Supposed to be past tense, not present.  Bah!

Have any of you guys seen Charlie's Angles yet?

When Drew falls out that window, and lands in that backyard. the kids inside are playing FF8.

Kinda funny....two kids playing on two seperate game controllers with FF8.  :roll:
