It's quite nice actually ;)
Sorry if there's already some thread with this , I didn't find it !

When we enter that, we see all this things, they're all so glossy :p
(I didn't use the Next Gen Look because it made the office goddamn ugly, but if you want it I can take some pictures in Next-Gen ;)) :

Because I used the fly tool, otherwise I would fall on the infinite blackness, and the reflections are actually everything which enters the floor, so if I engulfed Lara until her neck, everything under her neck would be the reflection, I hope you can understand me :p

If I remember, part of the floor within the office is walkable, by switching off the fly cheat, but as you get near his table at the far end, you fall through a non-solid floor to a hundred metre fall :eek:

Yep, that's what I was talking about, it's like a trap so people can't see what he's seeing on the computer, unfortunately, we, TR Players always find a way to the way :mis:

Marble slab under Nishimura's desk is raised a bit, so Lara is still level with the main floor and just walks through it. And the office was used in the completed version, we saw most of it just could not explore it during normal gameplay.

Lots of pictures were posted of Nishimura's office, but several years ago, when we first were able to explore in there. If anyone knows where the illustration in the book on Nishimura's desk is from I would really love to know.

interesting, I just noticed how nice legend lara's hair looks:p

it's a shame we cannot get to these things using the PS2 version:)

also the lighting looks odd around the blue lights, it's likethe light gets darker on the wall section with the blue lights:)

Yes that one WCookie, thanks. I went and got a screenshot but got distracted. The same picture is in the books in the TRU Manor, looks interesting the 2 angel like beings separated like that but I have not got a clue where it is from.

Aren't those the angels from Croft Manor, when you have to open that big door?
