Awefulsome bridge - based on the 7 kq distance across the strait, each of those light-panels is a hundred q long, making them each the size of an apartment building.

edit: And that makes me Pope of NP2377. What does this scale imply?

:D That's true. Although I have to confess, I haven't been looking for molpies. Has anyone else?

I have. No molpies.

Also, the pan speed stays at 5 pixels per frame. (I guess that the 0 after the first three 5s is mustard.)

I'm trying with my limited graphical skills to line up the Google Earth image of Tarifa and surrounding areas with the image from the ONGS. It seems like there's a lot more there than there should be there. I don't know if you can tell with this crappy image, but do you see what I mean?

Yes.
I see what you mean.
Do you want a guess?

Humans build islands, now.
Humans may build a land bridge from one continent to another, then.

A thin land bridge may be too delicate.
A 'beefy' land bridge may be more useable land.

In the Now, the area adjoining the additional land is used for production of food.
The extra land may be rich farmland. Or; Not. I know nothing about that Time.

It's a spaceraftcastle runway. That would explain the long approach from spaaaaace.

Maybe. That would be an awfully seaish landfill.

Looking again at the overlay I did, it looks like the area from Ceuta to Tangiers would be underwater, and other very large areas would be exposed. I guess part of the discrepancy could be that the view angle is different between the two images, but I don't know if it would make that much of a distance.

The spires on land look like the uprights on the bridge, although a couple of them (the spires on land) have black tips.

What does it all mean?

ETA: I found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantropa. It would have increased the visible land mass in that area, although the extra land is all in the Mediterranean. In the ONGS, it looks like there's extra land on the Atlantic side as well.

Not all frames, of course. Only those which contain some particularly interesting details.

I lurked here after some time and it seems that I came at the right time! The TimeBeforeTime time! :mrgreen: This is so exciting - timeframes with steganographicly hidden parallel timeframes! And in color! And 3D! Who would have thought of this? Christmas has come early to the OTT this yip. :D I think I'll stay out of the basement for a little while.

The road and bridge look like they extend way beyond the current landmass. Did the basin not fill up to the same height it was previously?

Doing a naked eye comparison, it seems to me, like most of the landmass is more or less correct. The terrain in the parallelONGs looks like generated from a low resolution heightmap which might explain the discrepancies. It may be even stretched in one direction. But then, I may be wrong and it was done on purpose.

Also, the Gibraltar bridge reminded me of the book Fountains of Paradise, an A. C. Clarke's novel about the construction of the space elevator. The main character in the book - the main engineer of the space elevator - became famous thanks to the Gibraltar bridge project he leadff. The book is set in the 22nd century. But of course, this means nothing since the Gibraltar bridge has been proposed many times IRL.

ffFun fact (minor non-plot spoiler):
Spoiler:
He originally designed the bridge to have no railings on the sides - because all the cars are self-driving, so there are no car accidents and therefore there is no need for guardrail on the bridge. This would make the bridge lighter and easier and cheaper to construct but others didn't like the idea because the negative psychological effect this would have. So he had to include the guardrails.
