New Gallery: Pagan the Beautiful
Some of you may have noticed that Julio Siqueira’s website, Pagan the Beautiful, was offline. This, as it turns out, was for financial reasons; he couldn’t afford to keep running the site. I wish I had heard of his plight sooner; I would have happily offered him space here at the Ultima Codex to host his work!
Julio’s work with the world of Ultima 8 was nothing short of incredible, as he painstakingly stitched together in-game imagery to create what are effectively large panoramic images of all the different areas of Pagan that the Avatar can visit. Fortunately, before he took his website offline, he put together a WebExe version of it, and uploaded this to a file-sharing site. Thanks to a tip from Infinitron Dragon, I was able to grab this file and extract many of the original, high-resolution images from it.
