Chickens on a Roller Coaster Edit
Thanks! It's an obvious parody of Snakes on a Plane (minus Jackson's offensive adjectives for the snakes). Nardek 03:22, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Hey, it's nice to see new faces in here. Welcome. --Ex Machina 04:10, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

I mean the entirity of all the user's edits.Serprex 22:27, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Though you added yourself,you have not actually contributed to a conworld thus far,besides 1 edit of spelling.Spelling is a librarian activity,so that doesn't count towards conworlding.Also,please sign stuff that you leave in talk pages.Serprex 00:35, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
So I was wrong.I'd advise you template your sig,or use the Nickname function.Serprex 00:50, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
Okay...I've taken you off the list along with Nardek for conworlders until you've actually contributed more.Please don't start another conworld,we need to focus.So I HIGHLY suggest you check out The Neverending Wiki,I'll fix any mistakes you make.Serprex 01:32, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
If you start a new conworld,you'll dilute new people possibly and we'll lose YOU,possibly.Serprex 02:06, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
Furscape EditAethyrbridge to see if we could merge these conworlds.
You're right, I didn't think about the drive much, and I'll change it soon to a more conventional gravatic warp drve. However, I do know what I mean with the disease. The virus burrows into the skin until it finds live cells for it to take over, and uses them as factories - nearly conventional virus behaviour. However, it sucks the electrical impulses the brain uses to control the nerves to supply it with energy and jettisons the extra stuff, so if it gets near the brain stem, you're dead. With robots, it can tell that there are massive amounts of electricity under the surface, and can suck it out through the conductive metal and release most of it into the air. Eventually, the virus will electrocute itself, but not before burning out the robot's systems and wasting huge amounts of energy. Falconier111 21:29 4 March 2007
Yes, that is my IP. However, the virus isn't killing the machines and the humans in the same way. When the virus gets near the brain, it sucks up the electric impulses the brain sends out to control your body. That effectively causes the body to stop working, cause the brain cant give commands. It kills robots by sucking their power out of a point in the robots body, and the rush of electricity to that point burns out delicate equipment.
That probably isn't a good description, but that's the best I can do without looking up technobabble in the dictionary. Falconier111 10:07 5 March 2007
Sure, it doesn't go well with the virus's interests, but its creators didn't care all that much about them. They messed with its genes so that it reproduces in human bodies enough to spread, but the electricity thing only kills a few. It does push science a bit, but I'm pretty sure it's possible.

Well. I would be happy to start making some star charts and star systems for Furscape. I have a book called GURPS: Space, which deals with helping people make Sci-Fi settings. The important part is: there are two very long chapters on making realistic Star systems and creating the statistics for each planet and star (size of star, Hydrographics of planets, Orbit size and the time it takes, Habitability, stuff like that). But I don't know what planets I should be putting on it? Or what star systems already exist? And I would need to know about the fastest (or most common) Stardrive.
Well... I can't go into great detail, Pages 72 through 98 deal with Basic Worldbuilding, pages 99 through 133 with Advanced Worldbuilding, (then there's a chapter on Alien Species), so it would be hard to describe in detail. And I can't find a simple explanation of what the proccess is like in the book. But I'll try to give you a list of the information the Basic chapter would give (these relate to one specific planet, not a whole system, that's Advanced):
- Atmospheric Pressure
- Atmospheric Mass
- Atmospheric Composition
- Hydrographic Coverage
- Surface Temperature
- Blackbody Temperature
- Surface Gravity
- Resource Value (tells how attractive it is to human settlement, )
- some stuff for settlments (society type, maximum sustainable population, a rough extimate of population, a thing for determining population increase, Economic stuff, Technology Level, etc)
The advanced chapter would give information relating to the Star system, and Orbits and how many planets would be in the system, stuff like that. It has a random element to it, but, because you do it by hand, step by step, you can tweak the random parts to be more of what you waned (in addition to selecting a World Type at the onset which helps to make sure you end up with a habitable world or not, but you can just roll that randomly and it would be for a realistic system.)
Since you have a computerized thing like this, it would be faster to use that one. Plus that would give you a map which you could put up here then. So I might say you should go with that one. But I might later use it to randomly generate a few species... I rather like the species that come out of it. They seem realisticly alien to me. (but they aren't impossible to imagine, which is what I generally consider real aliens would be). --from Modred. (speak to) 06:22, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Cool; my main annoyance with Space was that it was lacking in explaining the details of the 3D aspects of the system (I felt it gave plenty of information regarding X and Y locations, but not enough about the Z location of objects).
Neat. Now all I have to worry about is making some species to help fill up your planets.
Species example Edit
On my user page (click on Anitwar-E on the Table of Contents) I made a (very random) species, as an example of a mostly unmodified species that GURPS Space can come out with (this one turned out to be a Carnivorous Bird with Extremely high curiousity (plus it's a little fearless), without feathers, plus it can walk) I would have to guess it would look something like a mini-pterodactyl (but the stats would probably changed alot and made to be easier to read and understand in an article. This is just an example of the amount of information garnered just from the book, without adding imagination to it yet). If I were to use this I would probably get rid of the carnivour part (it would be such a nice little bird without that!, it's playful, Curious, it really likes meeting new races, it would make the perfect 0.2 yard tall pet!) --from Modred.
