Mt. Trux I (420m)



Mt. Trux II (420m)
(two nearby peaks of one and the same mountain)




i had a nice walk up there :)




i also climbed another peak, but i clipped somehow through the terrain and couldn't get my avi visible :/ also, lacking oxygen in these altitudes, i couldn't read my alti right, and, funnily, i saw bubbles in the air, like i'd be swimming.. lol... if it counts as 'climbed' anyway, i'd like to call this one..

Pk. Anti (alt. unknown, out of altimeter-range, or the climber suffered some seriuos lack of oxygen up there.. )

trux

edit: very nice event :) + rep

maybe we could do this also with other landmarks, if anyone would keep the map updated that would make the game more community-shaped.. good thing :)



i might have seen one of those guys, in a snowstorm..

Moonfish Mountain

The Mountain - East of the TP... Moonfish Mountain

401M

[br]Click to enlarge[/br]


Another, slightly further east - the large area one - even higher - seems 500 M is the max - then the reading seems to go to 1 again...

499M & Higher

Great climbers we got here on Amethera :yay:

Added one little extra rule, that a map window must be open in the screenshot as well. It will help me a lot when I make the "whos who in the Swiss Alps" map.

Sorry to see the discovery that mountains cant assume more than 499m altitude in this universe. I will send a support claim to MA at once ;)

Now all we need are small flags and the ability to write our name on the flag :D

Does the mountain have to be in the new area of Amethera?
Not only must it be in the new area of Amethera, but the Swiss Alp region only. Yes indeed :)

Huge one (608m) :eek: Does it got a name?

And it seems your not even all the way on the top?

How did the altitude bug work for you - since you did get above 499m?

I cant remember quite when i got bugged, or the altitude.

I took a few measurements from its different summits, the one im standing on is the Highest :)
(I think i pressed P whilst stood on the summit you can see)

Respectfully i notice Moonish also conquered this summit aswell, however left it un-named, so if no one minds... Gloryhound peak ;)
(i know i changed it) lol

Edit: I notice Trux did aswell

Here it is.
Amberrabbid Peak,
[br]Click to enlarge[/br]

there is a huge tree just on the north side (I think it was) just before you start climbing, was cool :) Unfortunally didnt take a pic of it.
Its not the same mountain as yours Solaris, as yours is the one just South of this one!

However, just like Trux, I got the invisiblity bug, and for some reason it only said "5" in altitude. And when I started walking down again, it started going in minus in altitude..

Dropped a bomb to prove I was there:
[br]Click to enlarge[/br]

I also got some claims there that went invisible, and I therefore couldnt get to. Couldnt find them. And when pressing P, I was suddenly -142 in altitude. After I started walking DOWN from the mountain.
[br]Click to enlarge[/br]
Also, funnily enough, when I was walking down from it, it wouldnt let me walk down any further after a certain point. Like a big wall keeping me from going down from the mountain. Had to T! and when I T'ed I finally lost my invisibility.

Mt Bury

Dang this is as high as you can go, 418 meters. the rest is straight up corners.

I am claiming Mt Bury for my old hunting partner.

You won't get any higher on this hill but you can try ;)

Now, if that is not a witty competition, I don't know what is :).
+Rep for Solaris for a neat PED saving idea and +Pic for the gallery.

Might even +rep MA for the mountains and New Switz, too ... makes me feel so at home ;)
