Concept - Live action supreme commander - Ed's journal
Concept - Live action supreme commander
OK, imagine this as a game concept:
In supreme commander, conceptually you're the 'commander' and you can build
stuff, and give it orders. You're gated in from a quantum gate, and have a
limited amount of portable mass and energy storage and generation.

You use an onboard 'build' capability to start production of power plants,
factories, mass extractors and so on and so forth, gradually amassing and
army to take over the world.

Now, what if that went 'live action', a bit more MMO style?
I'm thinking mobile phone, GPS, 'google maps' for route finding, and
something like wikipedia or wikimapia to control locations of stuff.

So you, as the commander, could be physically present outside e.g. Coventry
Cathedral, and 'build' some defenses, and capture it as a resource point.

And someone else coming along would be able to assault your defenses, but
might need to 'summon up' some tanks from their factory, or aircraft or
something, in order to do so.
Aircraft can, of course, fly direct and quite quickly, where tanks might have
to use some kind of route finder (google?) to get there, eventually.

I think we're getting there - I think this is right on the edge of being feasible. What do you think?

I think anyone playing this in public would probably be arrested as a suspected terrorist in quite short order.
