Hmmm. Is it an issue that you directly used KQVI material (the picture of the docks) in that article?

Well, that picture is owned by Activision, and this game is also owned by them, therefore the Four Winds is too, so...I'd say no, it's not :)

I thought Activision just granted PO a license. I didn't know they owned it or anything...Was that part of the agreement?

Yeah, part of these fan licenses is that the IP owner assumes direct ownership (and therefore veto power) over any and all aspects of the production.

So do you have to send each episode to Activision for approval before it's released to the public?

We send it to them, but it doesn't have a specific review process on their end before we release it, no.

Well, it says Alexander ordered the restoration of the ferry (which is wrong btw.) and that Shamir destroyed the dry-dock by accident. But why didn't Shamir restore the dry-dock?

You are referring to the fact that the ferry was already repaired even before the marriage in the best ending of KQ6? As stated by Saladin;

Quote
Saladin (KQ6): "With Shamir saved, and his power used for good, reuniting the islands will be far easier. He has already repaired the ferry."

Yup, but that's not the point. There just no comprehensible reason not to have a dry-dock anymore.

I don't see a reason to remove it at all. It's just irritating.

Kinda.  I would rather have it there.  Basically if it were me and I had any 3d/drawing skills it would be there, but I don't really care.  It still looks fine, especially if you haven't seen the version from KQ6.

It also doesn't affect the plot remotely. Spoiler alert, no dry-docked boats in TSL. ;)

We can live with people being irritated about a useless scene object being removed.  If it served any actual purpose in our story at all we would have included it.  It doesn't, so there was just no point at all in adding it.

You know the dry-dock was just a sandbar, IIRC (as described in KQ6)... Given time it would just rebuild itself back up... Just look at any location that gets dredged out to allow ships passage.

Yes, it wasn't a really significant or "permanent" structure.

Although the Four Winds chose to explain it via magic which is  nice story twist from the art department's perspective and the real reason its not there is because the thing would have been dug up to get the boat back in the water which is why its not there in TSL.  No conspiracy theories, just simple facts.

It burned down, fell over, and then sank into the swamp!

Wait...
