I have always been interested in a paticular area of mars, So i decided i'd make a Renalert map based in this area of mars. I put alot of hard work into the map, and ive known about this area since the release of the images, and i've always been fasinated in the thought that were not alone.

In 1976 the viking got pictures of,(and have gotten even more up to 2001). The area itself, just seems to artifical to be done with wind or errosion, which many speculate still to this day. Scientists analized the pictures, and discovered alot of the area had Pyramids similar to the ones we have in Egypt. With 100% straight edges, and all being symetrical. There is also one called the D&M pyramid, and its 5 sided, and all the edges match up equally.

There is a large area that is situated west where there is what looks like an ancient city. It has 4 main pyramids, and other features that look like mounds.

The face is where the most intrest is on. It is to the north east. and is 1500 feet in high. It has perfectly straight edges around the outside of the area, then in the middle you can almost perfectly see two eye sockets, a nose, and part of a lip. Mars is billions of years old, so it is possible that these have been erroded so much that most the key features are gone.



Well thats the story about it, i just thought for some that don't know about it, there is the information for you so you know what i did with it.

My map however only features the areas i have the most intrest in, and alot of it is squished into a smaller radius so it is more action packed. This will have just a barracks each, and a silo, as well as spawning vehicles to roam the terrain.

Here is my picture of it, with a couple real pictures to compare the areas.

I only focused on the city, D&M pyramid, and the face. Other features i added myself, to make it more thrashed up.

If anyone has any mars textures, i know Aircraftkiller did for the old cnc mars, but perhaps there is better ones around. I've been looking all over the net, and haven't stumbled across any good ones yet. So thats my main concern at this point, is getting it textured properly. Laughing

Yea maybe, i still haven't decided on that part yet. I did however texture it simply with the ones provided from Renalert, but I'm still in need of better ones.

As you can tell it looks pretty basic, and not much to it with these textures. I want to have it blended with atleast 5 different textures according to hight.

ummm... why would there be a human face on Mars? that terrain feature has probably existed for much longer than humans, and from different angles it's obviously just a hill.

I just don't understand why people jump to conclusions (same thing with the UFOs, what eveidence is there really that they are made by aliens)

The map's pretty good though, someone actually tries to make another map set on Mars.

I bet that a human skull was launched into space on accident during the Black Plague because it was plagued and they tried to put it in a trebuchet to launch far away into current day France. Anyhow the skull reached escape velocity and was launched into space. It flew a tad, and crash landed on mars face up. Over the centuries to come, it got slowly covered in red mars dust, of the finest grain which allowed the features below to be clearly seen and magnified.

That's my Theory on the matter.

Another idea could be that possibly we are the second generation of humans, maybe life existed the same way as it did in the egyptian times on mars trillions of years ago. Then the all life died on mars and at some other point int he future life started on Earth and began its second generation and have now exceeded our 1st generation in life.

Who the hell knows, its all just *best guess*.

A hill you say.
Well i have seen dozens of pictures of the face, even 3d renderes done with data from the original pictures. If it is billions of years old, you dont perhaps think there is a small possibility that there was an old civilization there?

The same reason why we explore the universe to find out what we don't know. There is so much to life that we will never know, and our belifs would change alot if there was any discoveries, even if it was just a microbe on mars, it would still prove were not alone Laughing

Yea thats almost exactly what i belive. I just don't think there is any way this area of mars is natural, and thats only 1% of the planet.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/blazea58/1cyndo.jpg

Scientists analized the rocks, and information, to discover an ancient sea. The blue areas, represent where there once was water, as many people may know there is even solar ice caps there, just waiting to melt in another million years lol, and as scientists belive, "Where there is water, There is life".


I still need to find textures though, plus i always find this type of thing facinating, and like to hear what everyone else thinks etc. Surprised

There was life on Mars. A lot of other planets, as well. You'll see what I'm saying as truth when they look at Venus, Jupiter and its moons, Neptune and its moons, Uranus, and even Mercury.

Life is not limited to carbon-based forms, or physical entities.

Moon Landing was bullshit anyway. There are radiation belts outside of earth that would of killed any human that went through them before they got to the other side.

To safely make it through they would of had to have 5 foot thick lead walls.
Which they didnt.

We got the hubble, that can see galaxies millions of miles away, but we still cant see the landing zone....Right.

Anyway, the "skull" is a massive mountain that just has shade on it. Thats it.

The village is just mountains too.

Heh, that's funny, because they're still using the laser reflectors placed on the Moon by the Apollo Astronauts to measure its exact distance from the Earth. And how would you explain why thousands of people worked on the project, sooner or later the truth would've been leaked. Not to mention, how would they be able to perfectly simulate low gravity and a vacuum.

About the radiation belts, as long as the spacecraft doesn't stay in the worst parts for too long the occupants would hardly be harmed (of course a mission to Jupiter would be a different story).

Life is not limited to carbon-based forms, or physical entities.


What?look at the definition of life:

life
n. pl. lives

1. The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, and response to stimuli or adaptation to the environment originating from within the organism.

What you speak of is something else entirely. The only places that even have a chance for life to exist are:

Mars-There's substantial evidence to support this, but all the life is microbial (It may have even come from Earth)

Europa (Jupiter)-The tides of jupiter have probably keep its interior heated to produce hydrothermal vents and melt the ice.

Titan (Saturn)-It's a long shot, and the life would have to be methane based, but we'll find out when huygens lands next January.

It's likely Venus had life in the past and that the ice on the Jovian moons will melt in the future, forming ocean worlds.

I'm not saying I disagree with Aircraftkiller though, there could be other "entities" out there that are completely different from what we call life.

Ok first of all the low gravity is easily simulated with camera tricks, slowing down fram rate will make that effect. Also satellites do go in space, And they can drop objects, and such. And yes we can go out of the gravitational pull, but not to far out or you will die.

Also download the original air time, and watch the footage. You will see a hill that they were walking down, and it has a rock on it. 5 minutes later they show more footage, and the camera is in the exact same place, the hill matches the other frame 100 percent, except the rock is now gone.

And speaking of leaks, there were, eveyone everywhere was talking about how it was fake. And amazingly the men that "went" there mysteriously died all within a few years after they came back. This is so no Death bed confessions could be made.

Look at this site, it show alot of evidence http://www.batesmotel.8m.com/
There are plenty of websites like that, but it was the first one i found.

Lol. Since you mention it, 9 of the 12 brave men who walked on the moon are still living. Next time try to pretend you're not so naive as to believe everything you're told.

So is anyone able to get me some mars textures? ive looked everywhere and most of them have the bumps and dips in them, i even went to the extent of looking through the nasa website, but there wasent any worth it.

Renalert textures are okish, but just doesnt look like a martian surface using those ones. I tried creating my own, but that was a failed attempt to, so if anyone has any textures which are kinda like dirt, then send them over so i can try them out.

Thanks.

I created this in PS while messing with the filters, seeing what they did.

http://www.n00bstories.com/image.fetch.php?id=1388245089

It's actually in a 1024x1024 format, just made it smaller for viewing. The colours are wrong, but you could make it tinted red or something. I might use it in a UT2004 map if I ever do one.


Ooh, nasty.

Take dirt texture's and give it an oragish color to it in photoshop. That would work.

Enough with the conspiracy shit. Sometimes you can be such a nut about everything. It's so funny how you're trying to prove that we "never" went on the moon, when there's SO much stuff that backs it up. Also, explain how we got all the information we have from the moon, and why we would waste a lot of money on all of those shuttles and trainings.

Lol, if you have a chance, go ask them if they really walked of the Moon, they'll either punch you or igniore you.

And it was proven...
