20080706.10:43 – Minor text fixes.

Matches up nicely with subversion -38-, doesn’t it?

You may notice that the gutter at top and bottom is slightly larger than it is on the sides, which is a change from The Dualist. This is to keep the pages a consistent 6×9 at webscale. The area inside the border is 6×9@365dpi, which is the same width (2190) as the “live” area of The Dualist, with a little under 300 pixels extra on the height. We’ll see how well that works out on the next page.

This page took forever and then some in the rendering department. I expect the next four pages to take just as long, if not longer to produce. Normally I’d find this pretty frustrating, but I’m currently SWAMPED with my day job (and will be for the next six weeks or so), so even if they weren’t a large amount of rendering and work they’d be slow in coming anyway.

Book “Three*” is go.

18:20 <@ejp> MONEY SHOT!
18:20 < solios> yes.
18:20 < solios> right up the ass!
18:27 < bda_> They look like those little parachuting army men I had as a kid.
18:28 <@rjbs> those things rule

* It’s 3 in the current context. Actually 5 or 6 if this thing ever gets Franchised and Exploited, as there’s plenty of backstory that can be gone into. I find those bits a lot easier to work with than Book “Four” for some reason.

20071030.20:26 – Fixed the textures on the Sabrosa’s bridge wings. This file is Stone Cold Fucked Up in the scale department, and it’s causing no end of weird glitches. I can’t wait to be done with surface shots.

Mastering notes, 2016.12.07 – Adjusted the caption.
