Do we really want to know what “Dimples might be NickCensorSpeak for? o_O
Probably dipskits (note, the k should be replaced with an h asap)
Nick did it! He broke reality! A virtual reality,but a reality none the less! :>)
And at level 1 no less
Don’t even think that was level 1. It was more like the intro, the very beginning of the intro no less.
As I gazed on the third panel, I felt a great disturbance, as if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
That’s the problem with a reality where AI is so easy that there’s a union for office machines. Is your simulation simulating an entity simulating existential terror, or is your simulation simulating an entity which is _actually_ feeling existential terror?
That’s sounds like a job for Project Skin Horse
Or one Dr. John Ellicott-Chatham. He lives in a sentient orbital satellite station named “Station”.
This is why all ETHICAL game design uses a single digital intelligence that works as an actor to puppet the npcs etc, or at most a team of them.
Since this is a world of mad science? NOPE!
I don’t think there is a difference, really.
In VR space, does anybody hear you scream?
Yes, which is why you should only play VR games in the home. It cuts down on concerned passerby calling the authorities. Ahem. Moving right along . . .
In real life, Garbage Collection would be disturbingly more PHYSICAL.
(TUNE: “Feed The Birds” from Mary Poppins, Sherman & Sherman)
Deep in the Whimsical virtual world,
The fairy flies ’round with her star …
To all beta testers, the challenge is hurled,
“Come, break my world of V.R.!
Test now the interface! Break it like that!
I will be pleased if you do!”
Nick says, “I can do it in ten seconds flat!”
(All it takes is seven point two-oo …)
Feed the bag, infinite birds,
Countless, countless, infinite birds …
Feed the bag, see how it grows!
While deep in the core, the stack overflows!
Functions recursing and instances spawning,
Illegal address, and we’re done!
“That was too chirping easy,” says Nick as he’s yawning,
They didn’t get past Level One!
If you find flaws you can break,
Do it, do it! Just for fun’s sake!
How to wreck floating-point words?
Feed them, feed them,
Long time no see, welcome back…
Welcome back, you were missed.
I was just wondering yesterday where you were. Clearly I am psychic. Now that you’re back, please stay!
Ah, Ed. Always good to “hear” from you.
Welcome back, eddurd!
In a way, I’m kinda glad they kicked out of the VR world. I don’t know how much Chibi Nick we all could stand…
Yeah, well, as Nick just showed, there will need to be a LOT more builds for him to test before release so we will probably be seeing him again like that in the future. Hmmm…maybe they should just dump it now on Steam early access. It doesn’t matter if it works or not there, you still get paid.
My housemate’s fiance alpha-tested Kerbal Space Program sat at our living-room table. It was great fun watching him smash quinplane broccoli-rockets into the upper atmosphere until the laws of physics gave up in despair.
I remember a video of a KSP ship of peculiar design instantaneously exceeding and disintegrating on the launchpad.
And the comment system apparently ate the symbol for the speed of propagation of light-like curves.
Although now that I think about it, the ship in question would have been a time-like curve at the moment of its discorporation, so…
