We're all fuckin' doin'itrong. [Inspiration]
« on: 31 Jul 2015, 06:38 »

Okay, what is it we see in almost all our world-building? We see human civilization with fancier tech. That's pretty much it. We stick with human cities, human towns, human space stations and variations on earth climates and nature.

Be inspired.

I've been doing it wrong for too long. New Eden is guaranteed filled with the most spectacular planets and moons, with the most incredible climates, nature and quirks of geography and human imagination and we're not creating these things. Of course Eve remains a place where the grimmer sides of human interaction and politics is the primary attraction and that's of course what should be driving our world-building, but let's start making the set pieces better. Couch it in the wonders of space, because space fucking deserves it.

An interesting point. I dunno about everyone else, but I've always been somewhat hesitant on how...unique I describe the settings of the stories I write. For example, astronomers have noted a planet somethingsomething light years away whose surface is covered in ice that is constantly on fire and doesn't melt due to the enormous pressure of the planet. They've also found a planet that would look like a beautiful glass marble from space, but rains shards of glass at hundreds of miles per hour on the surface. Stuff like that is cool and all, but I try to stick with what some people might seem to be more believable. :p

We're all doing it wrong Miz? :P I dunno about you, but I've, already put together a massive amount of lore along these lines. That is a good video though, I totally approve.

Have some lore:
