HELLO, EVERYONE! :D I WAS PLAYING JAK 3, AND BY "PLAYING" I MEAN STANDING AROUND WATCHING THE SKY. AND I AM IMPRESSED WITH HOW HAVEN'S UNEVEN CLOUD COVER SOMETIMES DOES AND SOMETIMES DOES NOT OBSCURE THE DAYSTAR, BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M HERE TO TALK ABOUT. I'M HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE DAYSTAR ITSELF.

THE OTHER CELESTIAL BODIES ALL TRAVEL ACROSS THE SKY OVER THE COURSE OF A DAY AS THE PLANET ROTATES AND/OR THEY TRAVEL AROUND IT, BUT NOT THE DAYSTAR. THE DAYSTAR APPEARS TO STAY PUT. I HAD JAK ON A ZOOMER IN THE PORT SO I COULD SEE IT BETWEEN THE CREEPY TOWER AND THE WAR FACTORY, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? IT STAYED THERE. IT CONTINUED TO PEEK OUT BETWEEN THE TOWER AND THE FACTORY FOR AS LONG AS I WATCHED. NEITHER THE SUN NOR THE GREEN SUN DOES THAT.

NOW, I THINK MOST OF US HEARD THAT IT WAS A SPACESHIP AND THAT THE "DARK ONES HAVE FOUND YOUR WORLD AGAIN" AND THOUGHT IT WAS TRAVELING TOWARD THE PLANET, GETTING BRIGHTER AS IT GOT CLOSER. IT COULD BE DOING THAT, BUT DEFINITELY NOT ON A STRAIGHT COURSE; IT WOULD HAVE TO BE SPIRALING IN, AND... IDK, I CAN'T DO ALL THE ORBITAL MECHANICS MATH IN MY HEAD, BUT I DON'T THINK IT WORKS FOR IT TO BE DOING THAT AT THE RIGHT SPEED AND ALL THAT TO APPEAR STATIONARY. NO, RATHER, I THINK THE DAYSTAR APPEARS STATIONARY BECAUSE IT'S IN GEOSYNCHRONOUS ORBIT AROUND THE PLANET FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. THAT MEANS IT GOES AROUND THE PLANET ONCE PER DAY-- EXACTLY ONCE PER DAY. IT MUST THEREFORE BE ORBITING ABOVE THE PLANET'S EQUATOR.

NOW, THAT IS USEFUL AND INTERESTING INFORMATION. AND WHY WOULD THAT BE? BECAUSE THE DAYSTAR APPEARS IN THE NORTHERN SKY FROM BOTH HAVEN AND SPARGUS. I DIDN'T EVEN ATTEMPT TO MEASURE EXACTLY HOW HIGH IT IS (WHICH WOULD TELL YOU THE LATITUDE OF THE VIEWER), BUT IT ALWAYS APPEARS IN THE NORTHERN SKY. SO, WEIRDLY ENOUGH, HAVEN AND SPARGUS MUST BOTH BE IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE. WHICH SAYS A COUPLE OF THINGS. FIRST, JUDGED BY EYEBALLING HOW HIGH UP THE DAYSTAR IS: HAVEN CITY IS NOT TROPICAL! IT IS SUBTROPICAL, I THINK, BUT IT COULD BE MEDITERRANEAN. HARD TO TELL WHEN WE DON'T GET TO SEE HOW ITS SEASONS CHANGE. WE SEE FLAT ROOFS, SUGGESTING THAT IT DOESN'T GET MUCH IF ANY SNOW, AND WE ALSO SEE PALM TREES. SO I'M JUST GOING TO GUESS IT'S ONE OF THOSE. SPARGUS IS NOT A RAINSHADOW DESERT (MEANING IT'S NOT SHIELDED FROM RAIN BY MOUNTAINS), SO IT MUST BE CAUSED BY HOT, DRY WINDS, WHICH DOES GIVE US A SPECIFIC LATITUDE RANGE FOR IT, SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH.

WHICH DOES MEAN THAT THE TPL QUEST AT LEAST BEGINS WITH TRAVELING TOWARD THE EQUATOR RATHER THAN AWAY FROM IT.

THIS MAKES ME WRONG ABOUT LITERALLY ALL THE CLIMATES, BECAUSE I REALLY THOUGHT HAVEN WAS RIGHT AROUND THE EQUATOR AND EVERYTHING ELSE WAS IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE.

ANYWAY, THE DAYSTAR MUST BE ACTUALLY BRIGHTENING, NOT JUST APPEARING TO BRIGHTEN BECAUSE IT'S GETTING CLOSER.</cut>

I MUST ADMIT I'M TOO DUMB TO CONTRIBUTE ANYTHING MEANINGFUL, BUT I JUST WANTED TO SAY I LOVE THE LEVEL OF DEDICATED GEEK-NESS HERE. :3

THIS IS A WELL THOUGHT OUT THEORY AND THE AMOUNT OF DEDICATION TO YOUR HYPOTHESIS IS ADMIRABLE! ALLOW ME TO POSIT A SECONDARY THEORY:

I HAVE NOT PLAYED THE PS2 VERSION OF THE GAME IN QUITE A WHILE (AND MY COPY OF JAK 3 FOR THE PS3 HAS A DAYSTAR GLITCH WHERE IT DOESN'T APPEAR) BUT GOING BY YOUR OBSERVATIONS, THERE MAY IN FACT BE ANOTHER WAY THAT THE DAYSTAR ~COULD~ BE APPROACHING THE PLANET WITHOUT IT BEING ON A SPIRAL PATH. (I AM NOT AN ASTRONOMER, SO THIS IS MOSTLY CONJECTURE) IF THE DAYSTAR IS ALWAYS IN THE NORTHERN SKY THAN IT --MAY-- BE APPROACHING THE PLANET FROM DIRECTLY ABOVE! SINCE I HAVE PLAYED THE JAK AND DAXTER GAMES FOR MANY IN-GAME "DAYS" IN THE PAST AND HAVE NOTICED NO SIGNIFICANT SEASONAL CLIMATE CHANGE, I WILL ASSUME THAT JAK'S PLANET MAY BE RELATIVELY FAR AWAY FROM IT'S SUN, HAS A RELATIVELY SLOW ORBIT, AND HAS A VERY LONG 'YEAR'. IF THE DAYSTAR WAS RAPIDLY APPROACHING THE PLANET FROM A VERY FAR DISTANCE IN A WAY THAT WOULD PLACE IT AT ABOUT THE SAME AREA AS THE PLANET'S POLE STAR, IT COULD IN FACT APPEAR TO BE IN THE SAME PLACE REGARDLESS OF DAY OR NIGHT (GIVE OR TAKE A DEGREE WHEN IT REACHES CLOSER PROXIMITY). USING THAT KNOWLEDGE, IF WE WERE TO THEN MEASURE WHERE IT WAS IN RELATION TO THE HORIZON, WE WOULD BE ABLE TO CALCULATE THE LATITUDE WHERE HAVEN AND SPARGUS WOULD BE!

I AM REALLY HAPPY THAT I FOUND THIS PAGE :) IT'S NICE TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE WHO SPENDS A GOOD AMOUNT OF THEIR TIME LOOKING AT THE SKY IN THESE GAMES.

:D GLAD YOU LIKE IT! AND YOUR THEORY IS COOL, TOO, AND HAS THE ADVANTAGE OF ALLOWING HAVEN TO BE IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE SO IT'S LESS WEIRD HOW THE CLIMATE SEEMS TO GET MORE TEMPERATE AND LESS TROPICAL AS YOU GO NORTH IN TPL!

YOU COULD CALCULATE THE LATITUDE OF HAVEN AND SPARGUS EITHER WAY, ACTUALLY. I WAS JUST TOO LAZY TO TAKE PRECISE ENOUGH MEASUREMENTS.

THANK YOU! :) YEAH, I WAS GOING TO TRY TO TRACK DOWN A STILL WITH THE DAYSTAR IN IT JUST TO SORT OF EYEBALL IT, BUT NONE WERE REALLY COMING UP IN SEARCH. AH WELL. HAHAHA
