Re: Artifact Sizing *Minor H3 Spoilers*

In Response To: Re: Artifact Sizing *Minor H3 Spoilers* (The Denxel)


: I thought the artifact was further away from Mombasa, according to some
: analysis of the E3 06 trailer.

Yeah, I remember doing that analysis. (I think it was my first post here, actually!) Bungie said that Kilimanjaro was visible in the trailer, and I assumed they meant the one directly behind the space tether ring at the very beginning of it, which is the only mountain in the video that matches Kilimanjaro's profile. Everything else was based on that and on what you could see in Google Earth.

Of course, about a week later Bungie released the "making-of" video for the trailer, which used different camera angles that showed that Kilimanjaro was much, much closer, off to the Chief's left when he's at the crater's edge. That threw everything else off, and I'm assuming now that the scale and accuracy of everything is a bit fudged for aesthetic or design reasons.
