Artifact of Luxor by SteveAbell Artifact of Luxor by SteveAbell

A tweak of Lux's params. Swapped the boardIFS for HeightmapIFS.

As soon as I saw Lucas' new maps, I realised the hieroglyphics would make a great heightmap. And here's the perfect excuse to try it out! Also used Lucas' colour map 1001 for the texture.

Yeah - although finding definitive news is difficult.

This was the best & most official post I could find: www.dgmlive.com/news.htm?entry…

Seem like they'll tour in September '14.

Also of interest was hearing about Steve Wilson re-mastering Red & Yes' Close to the Edge.  I own those in 5 different media already - I guess one more won't matter :)
Thanks for passing that news on!
