Hixie's Natural Log

2002-07-10 00:39 UTC Archeological Time Travel

Today I played Anarchy Online for the first time in months. It was a lot of fun, more so than I expected. The game has definitely improved over time.

There are still plenty of bugs, though: things like graphics glitches and the occasional clipping problem. It was because of one of these clipping problems that I ended up transported back in time, back to when Tir was still being built. The suppression gas was not yet concentrated, the buildings were not yet built... even the moat had not yet been filled with water. Only the outer walls and the lie of the land had been completed.

I have a photographic record of my visit.

I wonder if there are other parts of Rubi-Ka that can be visited by time travellers? Could the clans use these odd time travel effects (if the phrase can indeed be pluralised) to win the battle?
