So I was exporting object from AS2 earlier today when I came across this weirdly named thing.

Raft pole. It can be found in the basement of AS2, both retail and build 96, and I haven't checked other levels for it. Have anyone else found this earlier?

Never seen that before, tatu. I assume this was what you were meant to pole around the lake-bottom with in IJ in the walkthrough, but why exactly it's in AS2 is a mystery. Might just be another case of weirdly exported objects, like the burned crates.

Yeah, this certainly is the game for me.

You know, at first I was assuming this to be for some sort of unknown river raft, but now I'm thinking raft here might be short for "rafter" and could be about hunter camps..

I'm 99% certain this is the pole for the raft mentioned in the walkthrough, take a look:

Quote:
Lake
When Anne gets through the gaps in the forest, the hillside will slope down to the side of a large flooded bend in the valley. Something must have dammed up the stream bed during some previous rainy season, causing what used to be a small pond at the base of a waterfall to expand into this huge expanse of water. Luckily, when the hunters were on the island, a small party which had been separated after the raptor attack had time to fashion a quick raft which they intended to use to cross the lake, but something must have eaten them before they had the chance, because the raft and the long steel pole they had intended to use are still at the edge of the water.


Why exactly it is in AS2 is beyond me though since the Lake was clearly supposed to be in IJ, at the bend where the Rex is encountered in retail.

Possibly, once I get around to Industrial Jungle HD, as I plan on including the Lake and Swamp... :wink:
