Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim (Windows)/Unused Maps

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim (Windows).

A number of unused rooms are present in Ys VI. Most (if not all) of these appear to have been used for testing purposes.

As a forewarning, some maps lack proper boundaries, and since the game isn't able to handle pushing you back into bounds, Adol can get stuck on the edges of these areas. This would not be fixed until Ys Origin.

Access

The same access methods described on Ys Origin's page also apply here.

A good choice for the Scene List method is to replace Port Rimorge's string: s_35\s_3500\

Be careful when entering this map, as Majunun is placed here and can easily wipe you out. If you can bypass it, you'll enter a room where you can find the unused character, Kiiro.

  • Leaving the map through the southern exit will take you to Majunun's boss fight location.
  • Kiiro is incorrectly referred to as "Bikini Olha."
  • Speaking to Kiiro will yield a long string of messages, detailed below.
0:
...

1:
...Who are you?

2:
Wh-What are you doing in my house?
What are you planning to do to me?!

3:
N-No...

4:
Please, stop!

5:
Th-This is all a bit too sudden...

6:
...Hmm? Hmm?

7:
La la... La la la... La la la...

8:
You're kind of a stiff, aren't you?

9:
What kind of a man does nothing when
there's a super sexy girl acting all
bashful and flustered in front of him?

10:
Don't you have anything to say?!

11:
Go on, say something!

12:
You're kind of boring.

13:
But I have the biggest heart of any girl
in the world, so I'll forgive you.

14:
How big, you ask?

15:
As big as a kitty-cat's forehead!

16:
...Except those're kinda tiny, huh?

17:
Oh, dear!

18:
You really aren't any fun, are you?

19:
Oh, well, I'll let you off this time.

20:
After all, the fact that you're here
means you must be really strong.

21:
And by really strong, I mean REALLY strong.

22:
How strong, you ask?

23:
As strong as a newly born fawn!

24:
...Except those're kinda weak, huh?

25:
Well, I think that's enough of that.

26:
Let me give you a reward for coming all
the way here.

27:
I'll answer one of the following questions
for you.

28:
Choose wisely, swordsman!

29:
1) Why is Olha the strongest character?
2) Why is Geis actually the protagonist?
3) Why is Ur actually a pretty girl?

30:
Come on, pick one!

31:
What, you don't know how to pick?

32:
Just say which number you want! Honestly...

33:
You can't do anything without me, can you?

34:
Perhaps that's supposed to tickle my
maternal instincts...

35:
Tee hee hee... I wonder how many girls'
hearts you've broken acting like that.

36:
Don't worry, I'm used to it.

37:
Come over here, now.

38:
...
I'm starting to feel really stupid.

39:
Well, you kept me entertained for a
while, at least. You can go now.

40:
Bye-bye.

S_BATTLE Series

S_BATTLE0

Ys6 room s battle0.png

This map appears to have been used to test the distances Adol could jump. Although this map has iterations in The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin, this is the only game it is fully explorable in without modification.

Approaching the trees will tint the screen blue and angle the camera.

S_BATTLE1

Ys6 room s battle1.png

This map normally loads up the incorrect model, which is the boss room for Orjugan (S_5599).

To fix this map to use its own model, replace data\map\s_55\s_5599\s_5599.ymo with data\map\s_battle1\s_battle1.ymo in its SOB file.

  • Each section has the same arrangement of enemies in it.
  • Passing through the corridors will either zoom in or zoom out the camera.
  • It's possible to walk up the southern walls, though you will get stuck on the edge of the map if you tread too far.

S_HIDDEN Series

S_HIDDEN0

Was this some Falcom employee's hidden waifu room? The world may never know.

A room that, bizarrely, features Sakura from the Ukagaka software. This map also exists in The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin, though Sakura was replaced with a generic texture in the latter.

  • Sakura's texture bounces back and forth.
  • Approaching the light will zoom out the camera.
  • Several platforms are out of bounds and cannot be accessed without glitches.

S_HIDDEN1

Resembles the first Quatera Woods map (leading to the ruins) without trees.
Hmmm...
To do:
Find a way to load this map in-game. It has references to files that appear to have had filename changes at some point, preventing it from loading.

S_HIDDEN2

Ys6 room s hidden2.png

Another room featuring Sakura from the Ukagaka software with different lighting and objects. Most objects are missing collision, or are out of bounds.

S_TEST Series

S_TEST0

Hmmm...
To do:
Identify the character used for the texture.
Unnecessary parts ♥

A placeholder room with a fog effect. Nothing else to see here.

Ys6-S TEST0.png

S_TEST1

Ys6 room s test1.png

An earlier version of the Zemeth Sanctum (S_6600). Most of the map is untextured. (Incorrectly shown when viewing the model in Noesis.)

Apart from lacking detail, the overall layout appears to be the same as its final iteration.

S_TEST2 - 5

Ys6-S TEST2.png

Each of these maps are empty and have the same model as S_TEST0, likely left as placeholders.
