Imagine if you were granted invincibility and someone shrunk Jupiter to the size of a watermelon and you put your dick inside of Jupiter and you could feel its gravitational pull and high velocity storms surging through every inch of your cock.

Space engine is even less of a video game than Gone home.

Space Engine.

Go to Earth, click on a random star in the background, and travel to it. Then try to get back to Earth without using the search function or looking at the names of stars/planets you click on.

Then if you manage to do that, do the same thing from across the galaxy.

And if by some slim chance you're able to do that, travel to another galaxy and try it.

Trying to explain just how big even one galaxy is is almost impossible. It's hard for people to imagine numbers even as large as a million, let alone a trillion or higher, as anything other than conceptual.

Not many games will make you feel like in the vast deepness of space.
Space Engine IS vast, but there's not much to do other than watch.
You can try Space Engineers if that's your kinda thing too.

The problem with a game that has good gameplay and a story that makes sense etc can't adjust to the scope of an entire galaxy without recurring to stuff like warp gates or whatever, thus eliminating the "vastness" feel of the game.
If you can get engrossed in the lore, sure, but otherwise not much you can do regarding that.

One game that I did like a lot that was really big was Freelancer, even if there were the jump gates and all the systems were actually really big themselves.

To them, but to us, they're just the subjects of a simulation. No different to watching Sims really, just really intelligent ones.
Just imagine how much data you could get from a simulation like this; ridiculously realistic data, and you can subject the inhabitants to whatever you wish, ethical or not.

But it can't really be done.
The game won't feel vast if you can get from point a to point b in a matter of seconds or minutes.
If you make it so that traveling is really slow it can become tedious, very much so.
And there's still the issue of the amount of content the game would have.

Mass Effect 1 & 2 for example did have quite some content in them, but the games didn't feel vast, they didn't feel like a true world.

We have to make a choice, realism or entertainment.
Just ask yourself this, if Space Engine had a speed limit such as light speed, would you play it? I know I would but it would be very limited, too limited. It would take us six minutes to go from earth to the sun, at lightspeed. The game would loose all it's purpose.

In Space Engine if you select the Milky Way for fast travel it send you straight to the center of it.

There you suddenly found yourself facing a supermasssive blackhole surrounded by so many stars there's almost no void to be seen.

Except for that huge motherfucker in the middle of all, the blinding darkness at the center of all light.

Well Black Holes are the closest thing you can get to Hell in the natural world. Most people think of space and time as infallible and never changing and black holes are a gigantic "fuck you" to that notion.

Black holes really are the embodiment of the word "oblivion." People say "well if we could build a machine that could move faster than light then we're good." But that's not how space works. Gravity literally bends and dents the actual space you exist in. And in a black hole space is bent to such a degree that space itself is "falling" into the center. There is no such "left," "right," "up," or "away." The only direction that exists inside a black hole is "down." Literally. No matter which direction you travel at the speed of light you can only go "down" to the center.

If it weren't for the fact that black holes were so far away they'd be the ultimate nightmare fuel

>>255051126
Black holes are just large objects. So large that their gravity has caused them to collapse upon their own weight. So strong is this force that not even light can escape it. It consumes light. Sucks the fastest moving thing in the universe in and leaves only blackness. Even at its fringes light cannot pass, an object moving behind it simply eternally redshifting but otherwise frozen in time.

No one knows. Just like no one knows what Dark Energy is. It's basically a name given to things in space that we can't really explain.

We run the numbers and see that the galaxies do not have enough gravity to hold themselves together for the speed they're spinning at. But we don't know what's making the extra gravity or where it's coming from. So we just call it Dark Matter until we can figure out what it is. We see that the expansion of space isn't slowing down, it's actually speeding up and we don't know where the extra energy is coming from. So we call it Dark Energy until we can figure out what it is.

Dark matter is like regular matter (atoms and shit we can touch etc) except it doesn't interact with regular matter. What's really interesting is that it does interact with gravity.

So when a bunch of dark matter and regular dust come by a planet for example, they are both pulled in the same way but the dust collides with the planet and burns up in its atmosphere while the dark matter passes through it.

That's about the limit of what we know that I can explain though.

You guys want something really scary?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Filter

>Hanson's list, while incomplete, describes the following nine steps in an "evolutionary path" that results in the colonization of the observable universe:

>1 The right star system (including organics and potentially habitable planets)
>2 Reproductive molecules (e.g., RNA)
>3 Simple (prokaryotic) single-cell life
>4 Complex (archaeatic and eukaryotic) single-cell life
>5 Sexual reproduction
>6 Multi-cell life
>7 Tool-using animals with big brains
>8 Where we are now
>9 Colonization explosion.

>According to the Great Filter hypothesis at least one of these steps - if the list were complete - must be improbable. If it's not an early step (i.e. in our past), then the implication is that the improbable step lies in our future and our prospects of reaching step 9 (interstellar colonization) are still bleak. If the past steps are likely, then many civilizations would have developed to the current level of the human race. However, none appear to have made it to step 9, or the Milky Way would be full of colonies. So perhaps step 9 is the unlikely one, and the only thing that appears likely to keep us from step 9 is some sort of catastrophe or the resource exhaustion leading to impossibility to make the step due to consumption of the available resources (like for example highly constrained energy resources). So by this argument, finding multicellular life on Mars (provided it evolved independently) would be bad news, since it would imply steps 2–6 are easy, and hence only 1, 7, 8 or 9 (or some unknown step) could be the big problem.[3]

.. no we wouldn't

we don't have the tech to detect earth-level civs

we can't even see extra-solar planets, we have to just infer their existence via the gravitational wobbles they cause on their star, and we can maybe analyze their atmosphere if we're lucky enough to find one that transits across the star.

we can't detect their radio waves because they become garbled static after a few dozen lightyears

the fact that we haven't seen any earthlike civs yet tells us absolutely nothing about the fermi paradox, it just means it's beyond our capabilities to detect them.

How
We didn't even know most solar systems had earth-like planets until the last five or so years
And even then, we only have spectronalytical representations of these planets. What, do you think we know what the surface of any non-solar system planet looks like? Do you think we can fucking enhance some Hubble pictures until we can see whether or not there's cars driving around on another planet? The best we can do is figure out the planet's composition based on a few different light-based tests.

stick with 2001, its slightly creepy but the major point is the future of humanity. read the book a few days after watching it, really good combo

The idea was that you'd run extremely intensive computations in some region of space so that the computer the level above us starts to choke and glitch out. It's like running an emulator inside an emulator - shit slows down bigtime.

I disagree with their development methodology or rather the utter lack of one (no, really), but considering that this is their first game things are going amazingly well. They lack foresight, but things should finish up nicely in 2019.

The problem with the simulation argument is that, assuming it's true, what difference does it make? How would we realistically "leave" the simulation? At the end of the day, the universe, whether a simulation or not, is bound by defined rules, and the best thing we can do is try our best to learn them.

It's strange to think that perhaps eventually humans, in an attempt to understand the creation of the universe, will create a physics simulation to recreate it in a computer (or many, most likely). And that simulation may end up being accurate enough to create Earth and its life somewhere inside it.

I told a stoner friend of mine that all atoms have a huge amount of space between them even though they appear to make a solid object and that an atom has the same general structure of a solar system. Suggested that the universe could be the same thing, each solar system just an atom in an object of some other gigantic universe and our entire universe just one of many solid objects in it.

>The problem with the simulation argument is that, assuming it's true, what difference does it make?

It does in principle make some predictions. Fundamental constraints on computation mean that there's a limit to how many recursive levels of simulation we can have. If we figure out that the math says you can only have at most (say) 10 levels running, and we do the experiment and find we can only manage 6, then that's evidence in favor of us being the 4th level down from the root universe.

It also has some interesting implications for anthropic arguments and decision theory problems.

People still like Pluto, dwarf star or not. We sent a probe up there for the sole purpose of taking pictures of it (the only thing we really know about it is that it has a highly differenciated albedo like Triton and nitrogen ice)

Perhaps the reason why we haven't heard of other civilizations is that trying to reach other solar systems requires us to do something that sets in motion one of those many doomsday theories.

Like the hypothesis of going faster than light by shrinking the space in front of a space craft and expanding it behind to "push" it past the speed of light.

Nah, you can make that work. You just have to make the interactions with planets VERY exciting, and the in-between stuff interesting too.

If I made it, you'd have this fantastic ship that could land multiple times on other planets (like something out of Star Wars). You'd need to manage logistics like fuel by refueling at gas giants. You'd choose your crew and interact with them, forming relationships and managing crew tensions in between planets. While in transit, you can also design new rovers, mining equipment, weapons, suits, etc, depending on what you collected from your previous planet visit. Collecting scientific data and streaming it back to earth gets you further funding and the possibility to have more food and crew dropped out to you. Collecting raw resources on planets allows you to build the aforementioned upgrades. You also get the pleasure of documenting all the creatures and plants of any life-filled planet you find.

For extra long trips (between solar systems) you go into cryostasis (essentially making it instantaneous). When you wake up, you have to fix things that have broken down while in transit (which requires resources). Then while in solar systems there is no fast travel.

Sleeping, eating, washing, etc are all required for happiness and moral. So for example, imagine you come out of cryostasis and all the showers are broken, so now your crew [especially the women] are getting more and more cranky until you find the resources you need to fix the showers. You'll need to diffuse tensions and keep shit going until you land on a local barren planet and mine the rare earth metal needed to fix the shower's control chip.

These constraints are, by the very nature of the supposed scale of a computer or device capable of running our universe, completely null and void.

No, seriously, you're going to sit here and tell me our current limits of computing apply in the universe where running a perfect universe simulation is feasible?
