Used google earth to check Yuu's guess and he is either wrong or correct, depending on how you interpret it. Palembang is about S 2.59 degrees south of the equator. That was centered on the very bridge in that picture and since its a big city, 2.55 is pretty close. I say 2.55 because Neiva is about N2.55 north of the equator.

Honestly though, the bonus has many possible answers, all of which could be correct, so you MAY have to deal out alot of points Ovi.

I'll go with Kentucky for the main one. For the bonus, how about that they are both along a river? The Neiva columbia pic doesn't have a river, but google earth shows a river close to it.

I tried installing it but my mom set a password to prevent me from installing viruses. I have to enter it but I don't know it!  :'(

Why would you want to install viruses?

His mom meant accidentially downloading viruses. Usually a good antivirus firewall will protect you and as long as you don't download porn and stay away from suspect sites, you should be fine.

Anyways, this sounds like a hell of alot of fun, I'll download it a bit later and then see if theres anybody on the gamingsteve server.

Somehow I have a feeling that he might be right, I'll go with Hawaii as well.

Edit: For the bonus, besides the obvious in that they are both tropical, I would say they are similar in that they are also both islands and are volcanicically active regions. Although for different reasons, Indonesia because its along the subducting Pacific tectonic plate and Hawaii because it's over a magma upwelling. Assuming Hawaii is correct anyway.

You could still start it over and flesh out the form system in the beginning. This isn't the only RP that had to undergo multiple incarnations, but as long as you learn from your mistakes (and you did) and there is a strong following or ambitousness for it. You should do fine the next time around.

if anyone is interested i could make this game go on, maybe oblivion could send me some of the ideas he had and some of the mechanics

Go ahead, I said anyone could if they wished too.

You're great at this.Too bad i didn't come here in time to join  :'(
It was great. I can't wait to see a plotted out metagame by you!  ;D
It was awesome while it lasted. :)
Thanks for your support guys, it means a lot!

Too bad this ended, this had a really good theme and potential plotline going, although allowing it access to an entire forest would definetly result in an exponential growth increase unless we did something to balance it out a littke like having to convert a portion of the stuff that we eat into energy as we get bigger or having to eat more to go past a certain mass. The part about getting stuffed full of silver and having to wait before eating more is also one way to balance it out. Even with that, we are still a potential planet-eater. If someone else would like to continue this, that would be cool.

@Detox, yea I would be interested in seeing this continue.

How did you convert it into binary? just wondering.

Anyways, it's definetly following some complex rule that Ovi made up since he doesn't expect anybody to get it.

get out of the building, into the sewer, and try to get into a forest, plenty of dead plant material there, and the chance to get caught is rather low, therefore we can actually absorb solar power...


Then we shall grow to the size of Godzilla!! MUAHAHA!..HA!

Seriously though, I think that would be a great idea.

I, however, didn't manage to ignore the outdated graphics and I quickly uninstalled it :(

Depends on your definition of outdated graphics, sure the graphics aren't quite as good as things now, but they are still very good graphics.

I have the box and the game back home. I did try to install it some while ago and it didn't work for some reason. It should be freeware by now I think.

For the people saying Vista is too new, I've played Alpha Centauri on Vista and it worked fine. I, however, didn't manage to ignore the outdated graphics and I quickly uninstalled it :(

Your loss.  A monumental, unfathomable loss. 

Agreed, it is a really good game for sure :)

We are a huge ball of metallic goo, kind of hard to really hide anywhere. Even though I think we can still squeeze through small gaps since Amor doesn't have any hard parts.

Also, when did we pick up the ability to absorb alcohol?

There should be a drain to the sewers somewhere, so, slip back into the sewers for now, also hunt around for some homeless nobodies and absorb their blood since they won't be missed.

I think we are closer to a slime right now. Anyways, go for B as well.

We should have gone and assimilated the rat into our mass, it would have added at least 5 MUs. So, at least go and grab the rat so you can digest it while you are charging up.

Nice :) Although it looks like her right hand got cut off or something, or maybe I'm just not sure what position it's in. I like the sneaky expression on the mommas face there.

Wasn't that a dark power that Culex used just now?

Throw one of your swords at this so called 'Mother' lady, after you use the strongest non-chaos based power that you have.

I'm just playing with the max screensize that I have as the Mayday graphics mod seems to have 1280x800 as default anyway, so it works fine.

Anyways...I give you Magma Ants! lol. I was surprised when I saw the anthill icon down there and when I saw it, I went 'what the heck are they doing there?'. Those must be some pretty damn fireproof ants, especially when you consider that they are right next to the magma itself.


I was probably lucky that this level of the magma pipe happened to be double walled since I nearly opened it wide open following a bauxite vein. I've decided to set up a magma smelting and forging area on this level as well as a glassworks as there is plenty of white sand around, the entire first layer in fact. Not exactly sure how I would plan on setting up the residences since the main workshop level is on level -3 and the smelting area is -5. I was thinking of putting a storage area between the two. I've read on the DF wiki that you have to take into account noise, so.... heh.

This is my first non-tutorial fort that I'm doing a serious one at.

what if it was a corresponding letter down the keyboard.. like under 1 is qaz so 1 could be either of those 3. That would make 9 and o or l.

The 3 9's are confusing to me too.

edc - ik - ol - ujm ...

eilu...
dilm...
cim...

edit: other thoughts.. the number is divisable by 3 and the Octal number is 163621530461540507155.





I think you might be onto something.....

Also just noticed that it only has numbers from 2-9, which may or may not be related to my thought.

2= abc
3= def
4= ghi
5=jkl
6=mno
7=pqrs
8=tuv
9=wxyz

38979276589745999469

dtwpwapmj............
euxqxbqnk..........
fvyrycrol..............
  zszs.................

......I think that idea of mine might be a dead end, I don't see anything recognizable there.
