Is this a screen of Old Chicago?

It could be Venus, but the color pallete, tree type, the the presence of wrecked cars don't seem to match up. What do you guys think? [b]EDIT:[/b] I found this floating around unsourced on tumblr, so I have just as little idea as to its origins as the rest of you. [b]EDIT 3:[/b] It's been cross-referenced and it's definitely Venus.

  • The sky has a greenish-yellow hue to it so I'd say that it's definitely venus

      Nope. Sorry guys, it's a PvP map. Not Old Chicago in story.

        You can tell it's Venus from the sky color and the cafe logo that appears on this other Venus image.

      • As someone who lives in Chicago I will confirm this is not Chicago. Look closely, where are the dollar rachets on the corner, where are the homeless skeletons on the ground littered with broken 40's, where are all the sparrow speed bumps and the Fallen graffiti al over the walls? Definitely not Chicago. Notice how there is no one being shot and killed either that is the number one indicator, you cannot take a photo in Chicago without inadvertently capturing Guardian on Fallen murder taking place it just doesn't happen.

          • Definatly looks like it could be, the cafe sign and style of car do seem reminiscent of big city reminiscent of Chicago.

              • Venus was colonized during the golden age. They would have brought cars over. Since the sky there is green, i would suspect venus

                • [quote] [b]EDIT 2:[/b] confirming this as on Earth. [b]EDIT 3:[/b] It's definitely Venus.[/quote] Lolwut? In the case it's Venus, I have a feeling it wouldn't be Chicago. Unless it's a new Chicago that was built on Venus. Which in that case would make it Old [i]New[/i] Chicago...

                    [quote][b]EDIT 2:[/b] My brother just pointed out that there are power lines in the background, confirming this as on Earth.[/quote]Yeah that's not how that works. On a more serious note: Hmm... The rounded buildings, the cars, and the powerlines all mean nothing. We've built entire cities on Mars, this is kid's stuff in comparison. The foliage is definitely reminiscent of Venus, so that's a tough call. The sky in the background can only be called Earth-y if those are conifer woods in the background, which is unlikely. [url=http://www.halodestiny.net/images/news/destiny_monde_screenshot_janvier_2014_1.png]Otherwise...[/url] But what really throws up a red flag is the fissure in the ground. In case you haven't noticed, the ground on Venus looks like someone punched it- hard. The fissure fits right in place. Even more is that cafe sign, and this [url=http://strawburry17.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Screenshot_venus04.jpg]sign[/url]. Same logo.

                  • Well to go ahead and clear this bit up ... power lines don't confirm anything ... The traveler went out and terraformed much if not all of our solar system making it condusive to human life. We then had the golden age where we spread throughout these planets creating huge cities on mars and venus with mercury becoming a 'garden world' as stated directly in the trailers. This is 99% a shot of just outside 'The Academy' on Venus. How do I know this ? Every other image of venus out there uses the same color pallet and design tropes of it being an overgrown jungle, jungle being the key where as earths environments are more temperate in nature from everything we've seen.
