I know it's an odd request, but does anyone have any flymode photos of the hood lanterns?

Specifically the D'ni writing on them?

I'm having a myst themed birthday party this year (my cake is even a linking book!) and I'd like to have some myst decorations too and I thought the hood lanterns would be perfect.

So I plan on making a strand of the lanterns, but I can't get good pictures of the writing on the lanterns on the ground. I know people took lots of photos in flymode so I was hoping that someone had some pictures of the lanterns I could use.

Well... I don't have any flymode pics of the lanterns, but I do have a picture I took of one of the lanterns in live without flymode. :D

Does this help?

[spoiler=click to view a picture]Image[/spoiler](yes, it is possible to get the camera into that position. Try it sometime. ;) )

If you're interested in the D'ni writing on them... well..

It says: "t'hisay ih'oysh ah lahnt'drn" .... :shock: apparently some failed D'ninglish. :lol: I think these, like the vases in the eggroom, and the stained glass windows, were actually designed by explorers.

*sits in a pile of wadded up, torn and shredded paper* Image

Apparently making a paper lantern as made by Cyan is a fiery abyss of a lot more difficult than it looks. Image

Thanks for the photo

If I can get past the making the lantern bit, it will come in handy.

Happy birthday!

What you could probably do is extract the lantern texture and print that.

Thanks, but it's next month ;)

I could do that, but I wanted real paper lanterns....besides, how cool would it be to have Myst paper lanterns hanging around your house? ;)

Very cool...*Stares blankly at ceiling for a few minutes*

*Snaps outta it*

Anyway, I just meant the red lettering part. Feel free to do the rest yourself.

Here are a couple of pics of the lanterns. I pulled out my CC and "flew" around one of them, to get all of the lettering.

Hey Kierra,

What a cool idea.

If anyone can get them made, you will.

Maybe a combination of a few lamps that are already made.

Yes, Happy birthday. If you go to Mysterium, bring some lanterns, I would be willing to purchase a few. :D
PS. My cake looked like a mantainer's logo.
