ok... i have it on http://gildor.freepage.gr/try/mars.jpg

it's very interesting to compare the real photos and the intro scenes, and see how the artists interpretated them.. I like very much the Face, and shows that the artists had a good deal of imagination... although the Face pic isn't very clear, the artists did a good job making a 'how would it be if the pitcure was in good quality'

OTOH in reality the Face is not square, and has some curves on the northern side.

as you see, the artists didn't bother much with the distances and the Face seems very close to the structure called 'City', than it is in reality.. it is very interesting to note, that in reality the so called 'Pyramid' that plays an important role in the game (and is of course visited), is not found in the City, but much south of it... for simplicity reasons, the makers decided to put it in the City.

note: the structure called City has been analyzed with fractals and they say that they present an 'anomaly'.. that means an anomaly compared to the rest of the natural landscape.. this hints that it is artificial!!

unfortunately i can't justify it, and probably it's just an urban legend

notice also, that the artists made the images to be illuminated from a north-western angle, the same angle as in the real pictures!
