The Son of Quote of the Week

We need new ones, so I guess we might as well start a new thread.

Also, to make sure there's no needless spam, everyone trying to be funny in this thread just to get himself into the QotW will be nuked from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Here's one:


<Nachimir> On the bright side, it's going to take a whole dev team to make an MP5 in 10 years, unless Will Wright develops a cunning way to generate them procedurally.

Keep silent unless you've got something to say that is better than keeping silent.

I'd like to know the context of that quote. What was Nach referring to when he said that?

We were discussing the increasingly detailed content used in games and how hard it'll become for a small team to create a game's worth of million poly meshes.

A game's success is based on it's gameplay, anyway. Eyecandy may help sell it, but you only get really popular online and a big community if your game runs on most of the hardware out there.

And to get back on topic:

[00:00] <+H4x0rCr45h> sorry, Faith's hangar is closed.

Slightly obscure, but damn funny.

Dalai covered the conversation, but in case you don't know, Will Wright is heading up the dev team for Spore, a pretty good talk on which can be found here.

I thought of that, but then I figured this is a good time to see who have the social grace to figure that one out by themselves.

It's simply a matter of finding that fractal algorithm that defines Aristotolean 'MP5-ness'.

But seriously, once MP5's become photorealistic w/ realistic deformation, and moving parts (and aren't they close?), do we 'need' to go further? Perhaps 3rd party content is the wave of the future? ...perhaps even within the development cycle. Or perhaps smarter dev tools...there are already procedures for generating trees, cities with building interiors, models with random noise and morph sliders.

So when is someone to make eXistenZ?
