 Post subject: Rain Graph
PostPosted: Sat Apr 5, '08, 8:09 am 
When being told of the danger that faces Motavia from the Climacontrol facility, Rolf is shown this graph of energy used by that facility and Motavia's temperature and rainfall. This image set off a lot of debate about exactly when Phantasy Star II takes place in the series' timeframe.

So they lived in the 80's did they? XD

Some say it is 86 (AW 1286), while others affirm that is just an estimative. Two facts: the Japanese version of PSII states we are in AW1284 and Rika, in our version of PSIV, also confirms it (not to mention compendium).

I'm still trying to figure out how there would be a flood from Climatrol being damaged. It looks like the bottom part of it was already filled with water. I would be more worried about black-outs from all the energy being used.

My guess is all the energy that was being diverted from the rain aspect, according to the graph, suddenly flowed into whatever controlled the water control systems. Still, I have to wonder where all that water came from. It doesn't seem like all of it could have been stored in one building or underground.

Maybe that amount of energy was conducted by Climatrol (aka Automated Meteorological Data Acquisition System or "Rainmaker") for other things more important than its main functions (production of rain and irrigation)... and no rain = more temperature.

Maybe they needed to concentrate all energy to provoke a new "great flood" (perhaps an earthman's idea since they came in that "noah ship"). Maybe their first plan was "purifying" Motavia and then establish there (like it happened on the great flood of noah), that's why they didn't wanted Parma at all (every thing was settled in Mota, they just have to close the dams again to finish the job).

I think climatrol is also a "straw", like it could suck the water underground "main land" (or should I call it "big island" instead?). It can be also seen like an ordinary (but colossal) dam controlling the water from the bottom to top (and not from a side to another, like blue, red, green mini-dams). That’s why they needed so much energy (or all of it).

Bumping up this former Image Of The Day.

A seemingly quiet image but surrounded by lots of controversies as stated in above posts.

Lots of controversies, indeed, but that is great as we can continue to Wonder about it for years and years ! :)
The picture itself is very interesting !
