People often disagree about
whether two trophies are the
same size. One person says trophy
A is bigger than B; somebody
else says the two trophies are
identical.
How can people disagree about
something so obvious? Because
it's very difficult to compare
the sizes of objects in the
game unless you use a careful
method to compensate for variations
in perspective.
On this page, we'll show two
different methods that allow
you to accurately compare the
sizes of trophies.
Note: these methods work only
for trophies of the same type.
For example, on this page, all
the trophies that we compare
are wolves.
First, let's look at an easy
method. To compare the sizes
of several trophies, put them
close enough to each other so
the bases overlap, like this:
Look at the bases. There's
a yellow line where the middle
base overlaps the base on the
left. This is due to the fact
that the middle base is higher
than the one on the left. It's
higher because it's bigger,
and it's bigger because the
trophy that stands on it is
bigger.
In other words, the yellow
line indicates that the middle
wolf is larger than the one
on the left.
There's no yellow line between
the middle wolf and the one
on the right, so we know they
are the same size.
The three wolves in this illustration,
in order, are Rangfar, Throatripper,
and Lashold. So we just learned
that Rangfar is the smallest
of the three, and that Throatripper
and Lashold are the same size.
The method we just presented
is easy, but some people may
find it unconvincing because
it compares the bases instead
of the trophies themselves.
To satisfy those skeptics, here's
a second harder method that
compares the trophies directly.
