    This looks fucking amazing , although the servers would have to be amazing to be capable of this.
    It would be a good idea, but it feels a bit like The Sims

    Fine
    This is gonna fail miserably, just wait. They have no capable mmo dev team behind it, they have no serious backing or serious investors and their idea is far from new (Second Life with a bit of progression?). People that want to explore & have some action can always opt to play one of the numerous games that have a well-sized population and serious ambitions, not just one youtube video and a feeble attempt at making a cash cow.

    I would much rather put my money towards making something decent in Eve or something, not a quasi-realistic Second Life clone with some retarded idea of player-driven realistic staged content.

    Let's say that this 5.5 quadrillion square foot world is divided into square feet. You need data to describe each tile.
    Let's say 6 bytes or so. 2 bytes for elevation data, 2 bytes for texture info, what it looks like, etc, and 2 bytes for foliage and the behavior of the surface

    If you put that together, you get 33 quadrillion bytes, which is 30733644.96 gigabytes, which is not even considering the content, just the world. where would they put the game?

    more importantly, something to the size of that game would take more time to compile than they'd probably even be alive to witness it.
