well now here is something i have been pondering about Hyrule lately.....in the newer games like OoT and WW...we do not see Spectical Rock on Death Mountain...in ALttP, LOZ and AOL we see Spectical Rock....why is that i wonder...
well i have been pondering...Perhaps like in the end of the Wind Waker how Link and Tetra seek out new lands maybe they found another land that was similar in landscape to Hyrule with a large mountain range in the northern part of the land with a great formation they called Spectical Rock...and the Lost Woods (minus the kokiris and the Deku Tree in the western part of the land...(note how in OoT the Lost Woods was in the south easter part of Hyrule)....and how Northern Hyrule was completely non-existant in OoT and Wind Waker...

The Wind Waker has Spectacle Island.

Nothern Hyrule was non-existant in every game bar the Adventure of Link. In the Wind Waker Hyrule as we know it is submerged, so it is unsurprising that spectacle rock cannot be found.

Personally I think there are too many similarities between the OoT map and those in the earlier (chronologically later) games for the areas to be different ones.

In OoT, there are two huge peaks inside of Death Mountain - Many people think that this could be Spectacle Rock.

Yes, Trinexx. I believe there is also something that looks like spectacle rock in Ocarina of Time. I can't remember what it is exactly, but Davogones mentions it in one of his articles.

Actually...if you take the Sea Chart from TWW and World Map from OoT, align in a certain order..they go over each other pefectly almost. I used to have an image, but Ill make it again now.

Actually it's very hard to align the sea chart with the OoT Map without [img]http://forums.legendsalliance.com/public/ALOT.png[/img] of scewing involved. Barring the fact Forest Haven, which is supposed to be Lost Woods, is too far south and Dragon Roost which might be Death Mountian, is directly North of the that, the two maps are done in totally different formats. OoT's Map is done in a tilt and everything gets smaller as you go north and gets bigger as you head south wheras the Great Sea's Map is completely flat and eveything on the map is generally in proportion to each other as they are in "real life." Taking this in accountant, one would assume that it correlate more with the ALttP Map and in fact I found interesting that when I aligned Spectacle Island with Spectacle Rock the Wind Temple matched up almost perfectly with the Tower of Hera as did the Earth Temple with the Watergate Temple... thingy. But then I had Dragon Roost where the Waterfall of Wishes/Zora's Domain should be and Forest Haven was in Lake Hylia! Oy! The Great Sea is nothing but a Great Conundrum to me.
