SciFi fleet that builds their base on an abandoned Dyson Sphere only to, 100 years later, meet the makers who have been living on 90% of the surface
@HippyWizard Yes please. Honestly, I just want more Dyson Spheres. I love them

@metaljordy Yeah, all scifi megastructures are perfect
@HippyWizard What other megastructures are there?

@metaljordy So you have your classics:
Dyson Sphere
Dyson Shell
Dyson Swarm

Then your remix in a Ringworld
Then my favourite which is the freehold space station city (giant city without a nearby planet)
There's Star Habitats which are BONKERS
There's artificial planets and of course suns
@HippyWizard The citadel in Mass Effect I think would count as a freehold space station city.

I think I'm aware of a Dyson swarm. I recall watching a video on that

@metaljordy One day I'll figure out getting Mass Effect running on Linux because *damn* does it sound good
@HippyWizard I highly recommend it. It might very well be my favourite SciFi setting. If possible I recommend the Legendary Edition since, it has many improvements.

@metaljordy I already own Mass Effect one and two, and can't run them, and honestly they're gonna be easier to run than Legendary, but yeah!

@metaljordy Yeah, proton is very hit and miss, with lots of miss
@HippyWizard I'm very unfamiliar with Linux. I honestly just clicked the first link.

I'm told it's like this
Windows is for the average person
Mac is for very specific purposes
Linux is for people people who know how computers work.

@metaljordy No no
Linux is for people who make up guesses abput how computers work
@HippyWizard That makes perfect sense honestly
