Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The internet is back up, life is returning to normal, and I promise not to mention my new book for a little while.
And I promise not to take down Internet for an experiment if humans are still capable living without it...
For a while... ;)

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

It's the Vorstok on a collision course that's out of air - I'm guessing the Controller is driving now. I think LeonT is suggesting the Tempest could ram the Vorstok out of the way. That's exactly what I'm suggesting. It would suck for the Tempest, but in a collision between a battleship and a destr...

Unless the captain of that tempest understands suicidal physics
Isn't the captain of that tempest out of air?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Being on a collision course is always difficult to deal with. Even if you take down the ship, there will be a big pile of junk that is still on that same collision course.... Inertia will do the rest.
And the station probably does not have enough thrust to dodge the bullet...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Great art on your book!
For me, however, spaceships beat dragons. Especially when they are well rooted in science, or at least - there is a well defined, coherent pseudoscience that the ship design follow.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Just to add... I don't belive that there is a dependency that cannot be replaced. Comparing to present-day Earth. What would happen if, say, whole Internet just went down and it was not possible to bring it back up for some reason. We are so dependent on it... but yet, I believe, people would just a...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

"This present little war will look like child siblings wrestling in the backyard compared to what you're about to instigate" Oh, Wisdom. That is your fault, not Whisper's. If you have nothing better to say, then just shut up and be gone! I suspect, if Wisdom truly cannot hack into Whisper, she may ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I fear all this is some kind of a distraction.
Congratulating the enemy before the end feels like flattery intended to put him off-guard.

I hope Whisper is clever enough not to fall for that!

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Are people able to stay active both in real world and CVS?
It is something that may seem hard for us, but I can imagine that if a young human brain is introduced to CVS it may learn to work concurrently in both real world and simulation.

Aw hell. I was right, wasn't I. Bob's the Mazikeen. Hiding in plain sight while everyone searches the weave for something that isn't there.
I don't think it's him.
Could be mistaken though...
