terraforming the universe
« on: June 12, 2005, 09:21:55 pm »
ever since i heard about spore some thoughts on teraforming have been coming to me

i thought about small bases where you could have labs or zoos
you could build them on moons asteroids and space-stations

Bio domes  ;D

cheesy yes, but a artificial habitat makes a great lab/ zoo/ city.
along the lines of startopia's bio deck

some options for planets:
Artificial Atmosphere- no need to genesis, also helps planets too close/too far from star.

Runaway pile- resets planet geology from the ground up ;)

Luminus Orbital Orb- the fake star- orbits planet provides heat and light for an artificial world

the Jupitor projector- 2010 anyone- makes jovian moons livible


little bit of evilness
Pulsar gun- effectivly eradicates all lifeforms from the surface of a planet by emmiting massive ammount of fast moving neutrons
this kills living tissue http://www.nuclearfiles.org/menu/key-issues/nuclear-weapons/basics/neutron-bomb.htm

P.S. if you google neutron bomb you get som scary $#!t.

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

Hmm, I think this is the first time I've heard of the Jupitor Project.  They really plan to make one of its moons livable by 2010?  I think not.
Experiments?

Okay, sir, what's today's experiment?
Well, we caught us a couple of slaves earlier, and decided we were curious what was in their rectum.

 :D - no the plot of 2010: a space odyssey revolves around the monolith, Jupiter’s destruction and the creation of a new star in the Sol system making it into a binary and allowing organisms living under the ice of Europa to become sentient

i was using that as an example of how the destruction of jovian worlds and the creation of a new star would allow the moons to become habitable

incidently do you thank the devs will make binary systems possible

Oops, my bad.  I thought it was "2001: a space odyssey".  Been so long since i've seen that movie though, I forget.

I'm not sure about Binary systems, probably not.  But then again, there is a lot of stuff in spore so far that I haven't thought anyone would ever put in a game.

Is the picture for the Luminus Orbital Orb taken from the intro to Tron?  ???

2010 I know is a sequal to the book "2001: a space odyssey", I'm not sure if they made 2010 into a movie..., so you're not mistaken... to my knowledge
Then there's another book... it's some wierd date if I remember correctly

Did you know that there were astronauts (forgot the time and which particilar astrounauts) at one time almost called in that they saw that monolith from 2001? It was in the book that I have! And it also said that they recreated a spinning scene from a movie in the series

One is 'fake', the other is not, guess which!

Book series was 2001, 2010, 2061, and 3001.
The first two were made into movies I believe.

Yep. 2010 was made into a film in 1984 starring Roy Scheider (from Jaws). 2061 is a good book, but I wouldn't bother with 3001 - it's a bit rubbish. OFF TOPIC - does anyone know whether Spore is likely to appear on the Apple Mac? I hope so!
