    Well I'd really love to find out.

    I believe that the ancient cult that gave rise to the Phayder and the necrification process terraformed Omicron 6 in an attempt to replicate Earth as closely as possible for mysterious religious reasons.

    Either that, or the artists were lazy.

    UT Timeline, from http://www.unrealtournament2004.com/.../timeline.html

    2215 New Earth Government formed to battle Skaarj Empire.

    2216 During the '7 Day Siege' the Skaarj surround Earth. In a bold move, NEG commandos destroy the Skaarj mother ship, causing the Skaarj to retreat in disarray.

    2219 Following the Human/Skaarj war, many of Earth's cities lay in ruins. When the New Earth Government attempted to assert its authority over these areas, they were confronted by many rebel groups, often covertly financed by the great corporations, which had established bases in the destroyed cities.



    AS-Mothership Introduction:

    "First contact with the Skaarj came during the recovery of the prison transporter Vortex Rikers on Na Pali. Within a year, the Skaarj had pushed humanity back to the brink of destruction. This scenario replicates the final battle for Earth and the stunning victory by Humans in the face of almost certain defeat."

    Earth is Earth. The New Earth Government is not the government of a planet called New Earth.
    There's nothing blurry about that screencap - it's very clearly using the Earth as its texture. And this wouldn't be the first time the timeline's been altered with a new game.

    Though atm I'm banking on lazy artists rather than intentional use.

    Which further lends to NEG meaning a goverment on a New Earth.

    Yeah. Sure a lot of inhabitable planets would share similar features, but no two planets would have the exact same land and water configurations.

    Ok, here's about Omicron 6 being Earth.

    First we see the Ronin's ship whizz by what is exactly our Moon:



    And then, this is most definetely Earth ( Black sea, Red sea, Mediterranean sea all show up ):



    Now I agree the planet looks really cool as a visual treat, but either Omicron is truly Earth, or the artists were lazy and thought they could get away without making a new planetary texture. Pick one.
    Also clearly seen are the Anatolian and Arabian peninsulas and the Caucasus mountains. So definitely either Omicron 6 is Earth, or the artists were lazy.

    So like the counterpoint of us drinking coffee from regular mugs?

    I thought the N.E.G was setup somewhere else.

    Why else would it be the new earth government?


    It could either be earth or the opposite of earth because that guy said one reaction always has an equal opposite reaction.
