View Full Version : Semantics!

This seems to get thrown around alot regarding whether the planet inside the rift is world 1.0, or if it's 2.0 and it's a recursive rift, or if 1.0 is their world and the one inside is 2.0, etc..........

So, I pose this question: Is it explicitly said somewhere that world 2.0 was built geographically distinct from world 1.0, and assuming it were, given the limitations of the art style, is there enough evidence regarding the appearance of either world for any one person to look at world 1.0 or world 2.0 and be able to declare that one is or isn't the either?

ALSO: Why this is relevant....... Comments have been made on the grounds of their own identification of the planets as they were listed, and the evidence cited to support their claims often relies upon information my inquiry has specifically challenged the integrity of.

Here are images of the two worlds that have been given to us. Whether they are the same geographically is for you to decide. Could just be turned the wrong way, after all...

Ice caps seem to be something that developed after some time, since neither World 1.0 nor World 2.0 have them in 273 and 275, respectively. However, they were probably left out unintentionally. The Giant has been shown to give us more details in more recent comics, art-wise.

273: World 1.0 (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0273.html)
274: World 1.0 (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0274.html)
275: World 2.0 (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0275.html)
639: World 2.0 (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0639.html)
672: ??? (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0672.html)

See, I always assumed that Rich was just rotating them.

That said though, they look alot the same in some instances. 273 and 639 look very similar, and 274 is too garbled to tell one way or the other. On the other hand, 672 doesn't look like any of them.

Hmm, I didn't actually take the time to examine the planets when I posted that, but looking at them now, all of them except 672 look about the same. It doesn't seem like he ever rotates them, actually - you can see what resembles the Americas (though vertically straighter), with an Australia off the coast of Colombia and some other, smaller islands on either side. With 274 and 275 it's a little hard to tell, but if you look close you can about make it out.

672 appears to show two big continents, both lateral enough. But it's at a different angle, so I'm not sure about that one.

I think the continents are maybe further apart in the #639 globe than they appear on the #273 and #274 ones, but I agree that the #672 world doesn't really look like either of the others, even if you removed the ice cap.
