If you think about it, trying to build a flying city would be an extremely costly and time-consuming project. Meanwhile, you'd have to find a way to get food and water up to it, find a way for it to get electrical power, and even get people onto it in the first place.

Up to you, though, I wouldn't say its impossible. Again, the RP is science fiction based, don't be too quick to crack open a physics book. Its more enjoyable if people are more open-minded in terms of what's allowable.

Funny you should mention Bioshock in the midst of a flying city discussion...

If anyone has seen the trailers, Bioshock Infinite is based in a flying city setting. They even explained it in the short sequence of an episode of EP. I can see it being held up on it's own by lightning towers, generators, pressurized gasses, so on and so forth.

Just browsing, but I thought I would add my thoughts.

What if the mountain city existed prior to the Synth disaster? Maybe this city/town was so rural it didn't have it's own Synth power plant. I could easily see Blackthorn City or even a small population of trainers stranded on Indigo Plateau qualify for such.

Also the SHEILD hellicarrier from Marvel seems to have no trouble staying up for long periods of time. The amount of agents in there is relative to a small city. The idea is basically adopting helicopter technology to a larger mass, and finding a way to power it for long periods of time.

This is all fiction, so even if you start saying that these two references still are unfeasible IRL, consider that fictional references do exist.

Stilts? What's to stop malicious people from just destroying the stilts?
Did I not specifically state that you can BS something since this is an RP? I am saying that flying cities are horrifically unfeasible in reality. Using examples from cartoons and comics does not help your case. Laputa is a magical flying island in Gulliver's Travels, that doesn't mean magical flying islands are feasible in reality. You simply seem to think that a flying city is a simple extension of already-existing technology. It is not. You cannot simply make something bigger then expect it to still work.

Excuse me for butting in on the entire flying city debate, but...

Question: Since the sign-ups were a day early, does that mean the role play will start a day early, too?

Where did I mention magic Lus, where? Nowhere did i suggest BSing with sorcery, which is the definition of BS just because of it being magic which is not real IRL.

And yet the SHIELD hellicarrier example does work off an extension of existing technology. Marvel Comics are set only slightly in the future. I'm talking about the one from the recent Avengers cartoon specifically, or even the 1900s Spiderman cartoon. Go look it up before you say it's impossible to use helicopter technology to keep something of that size aloft, please.

Nah, that will start on time. I just thought it would be a little helpful for an extra day to get SUs ready and stuff.

How about we resolve it this way: if the need for a flying city suddenly comes up in the roleplay, we create a list of justifiable reasons for making a flying city, and make a flying city. No need to argue over something that may or may not exist.

I'm ok with that if Lus is.

Congratulations! You win the thread!



Seriously, it should always be done this way.

Seriously though. Thanks. XD Didn't make much sense to be arguing about the city that never was, eh?

Your argument that something is possible... is that it exists in a 1900s Spiderman cartoon?

Since you don't want to drop it......

Why yes, yes it is. Go look up the references, or DROP IT.

Yeah. SHIELD in the 90's Spiderman cartoon had a flying base like they do all the time. The parody SHIELD in Venture Brothers has a flying fortress in the sky too.

=D How about some cake? Does anyone want any cake? It comes with healing preservatives that help the body cope with injury. This cake is not a lie.

The synth gas could be a lie.... it could tell us that it came to my birthday and in reality, it blew me off cause of indifference.

Anyways, with all the racial schtuff going on in the RP, how many people would there really be who would join up with hybrids and chemera? Or is that number souly up to us RPers of brilliance?

....

.......

......... that offer of cake is still up by the way...
