Atlas Park Catwalk


Not exactly that "Stairway to Heaven"


More from the Underground


Still Heroes. Still standing.


Anyone for an ITF?


Even the guy's ghost was a total nut-ball...


Black Knights


Street corner in Dark Astoria


How many of these did we all blast, or scrap, or tank, or defend or stalk our way through?

When I looked at this I thought that it was about an aftereffect of eating at El Super Mexicano .

Beware the dreaded tex-mex. O_O

I suspect the caption really ought to be something along the lines of "Darn-frickin'-&*%$# towers firing on me all the *&$#@ time...Bet'cha can't get me WAY OVER HERE, ya' jerks", though...  ;D

Council Earth


Surruna was more at home in the Shard than he ever was in Praetoria or on Primal Earth.


Just standing around


The ghost of Mercy


The Blue Line takes an unexpected detour


Someone left the lights on in Dark Astoria


Fifth Column base


My bird-things were very leary of certain members of the Talons of Vengence. They just looked a little too much like members of the family.


Frozen Croatoa


Waiting for the Ferryman

Gaussian's so rad he doesn't NEED a team...


Even Praetoria's sewers are clean. Except for that graffitti problem.


"And after their puny defenses have been destroyed, we shall dispatch them with... Hmm... What shall we dispatch them with?"
 "Bees!"
"Yes... We shall dispatch them with GIANT BEES!"
Mei and Vernon are definitely up to no good.  ;D


Ritual Room


Everyday!!!


Izzy, in his native habitat.


Johnny's Personal Hell


King's Row Graveyard


Manticore's Basement


Nightstar... Trying not to think about that whole "Reassigment to the BAF"-thing.

These are all gorgeous! I wish I was able to play in ultra mode, but I was on a mac. I still had no problems playing though. Best game ever... :(

Indeed.
The more I tinker around with other MMOs, the more I miss the City. We really were spoiled by that game in a lot of ways.  :(

Of COURSE that way's a dead end. The first one you pick is ALWAYS a dead end in Oranbega. The place is cursed.


He really thought those glasses were an excellent disguise... It works for Clark Kent, after all.


"And then we shall hide our delicate electronics in a damp and leaky storm sewer! Tyrant will never look for them there!"


Rikti Towers


The Carnival comes to Steel Canyon


Warship Tetris?


Watching over Warburg


Ah, the water room...

This last pair is special... They're not really in-game screens. They were taken via FRAPS from a demorecording that FlyingCodeMonkey made for me as a gift.

Many posts upthread, I put in a picture of my orange and black mechanical Energy blaster, Tao Tiger. As much as I liked Tiger's design, though, there was always a problem with him. Even at the absolute max height for the Huge model, he was too small. He looked more like a suit of power armor than the stompy battle mech I really wanted him to be. FCM's demo fixed that.


Playing with the character size in the demo file, he made me the Tao Tiger of my dreams. One the same size as a Praetorian Warwalker...


So, it's Tao Tiger and his pilot as they ought to have been, but never really were.  8)

Alas, no. 
He was only meant to be a small mech. ;D

The Storm Palace


The Oranbegans tried building a water room, too.


"Keep Out... Yeah. Right."


The underside of Firebase Zulu


Nem is not amused


Again with the banners...


I really wanted a few of those Rularuu artifacts for the Elysion base.


Back door to the Vanguard base


Running to catch up

Hide and Seek


Hellion Cave (Atlas Park)


Fountain in Warburg


This is an old one... The first screen I ever made of Kestrel and Cardinal together.
It's amazing the difference Ultra Mode and a new video card made to the appearance of the game.


Faathim's front door


Warburg


Who wants to go find Dreck?


Sometimes the neighbors made it hard for my bird-things to get home...


But then, the neighbors were determined to make things interesting for everybody who wanted to cross the Shard.

"You call those swords? I'll show you swords..." Kes remained unimpressed by the Blade Prince


AE


Hanano. Inside Mot. Still waiting for the boys to catch up.


Can Romulus come out to play?


Rocket on the Launchpad (Warburg)


Think we can get them all before we're up to our eyes in Zeus Titans?


Kang seemed a little skeptical of Longbow


They had a nice ship in Warburg, though.


It's safe from Kephren.  I left her in Rome.

I have been saving some of these to my PC. There are a lot of places here I never got the chance to get shots for so I am saving ones for remembering all the good times I had in this game.

Still makes me sad to see these pictures and realize I will never be able to go there ever again.

We may get back there some day... It's really only a matter of time, I think. But then, I'm the hopeful sort so I'm probably biased about that.  ;D

Mercy Hospital Interior (I HATED this map... <_<)


A different sort of warehouse


Another case of multiple choice


Next stop... Atlas Park!


Savage is not amused, either


There's no light at the end of this tunnel. There's only a morgue.


Not exactly the Batcave


Praetorian Lab Map


Warburg


Praetorian Underground

Stormy Skies


Reindeer crossing? (Frozen Croatoa)


Random soldier of the revolution


Rikti Tech


Sola, lighting up the world


Trap? What trap? ... That's not a trap. We swear.


Another geyser leading to no good.
