Not sure if this can be answered here, but this BtB Persia Lara will still have the moves as "ledge-jump up" and "ledge-jump backwards"?

I really can't understand why BtBs always choose themes about historic things. Why not themes about inner space, outer space, comic world, fantasy world, etc.? Is there any particular reason?
My heart for Lara is always young!

Why is that so hard to understand? :-P
Back to Basics = Back to the roots of tomb raiding = raiding tombs in ancient civilizations.

This is the registration thread for PERSIA BtB. If you want to discuss themes - do it here please:

Don't want to open Pandora's box with a bunch of questions about what is and isn't in the BtB wad. But yes you will be able to use those moves.

Okay. It was only one question. That's all I wanted to know for now.
Keep safe the Pandora's box, because it will not be open with a bunch of questions. At least not by me.

Yep - understood. I'm sure all builder's queries will be become clear once the building phase commences and you have the building pack and access to the private builder's forum. :)

I still can't make up my mind ... argh! :hammer:

Btw, will this BtB be eventually called BtB 2017? Considering that's when the levels will be released.

Hmm, and I always thought that back to basics = back to the roots of classic = raiding any themed locations created in classic editor

otherwise we could use trng or meta2tr and raiding tombs in ancient civilization :)

I always took it like "Back to Basics = take what's provided and build" :D

That's true, that's very much how it started out. But it has evolved over time. That's just the way it's gone.
I would say try not to over analyze what I said and what BtB means. The meaning is still the same. :wink:

Any particular reason why not? IIRC, the same situation occurred in 2012/13, when BtB 2012 was skipped, though the BtB levels were released in April 2013, meaning that the building process probably started in late 2012.

I'm not complaining or anything, just curious. :)

Because there's a chance another round will be made faster and also in 2017.

Oh, cool, that would be awesome. :2thumbsup:

Maybe they could be BtB 2017-A and BtB 2017-B? :D
