Re: Terrestrial Communication

Well, it will never actually get that big. Compression and procedural generation go really long way, especially since natural terrain is decidedly non-random. But the hundreds of MB range may not be terribly unreasonable for a well-explored planet.

Re: Terrestrial Communication

But there's still 2 problems:

1. The shortest range possible for a portable radio (with the current ratings) is almost interstellar.
2. If I shortened the ranges to distances on-scale with the planets, it would be too boring / unrealistic.

Re: Terrestrial Communication

Deal with it? This is hard limits vs creative sensibilities. Which do you think is more important to avoid hitting?

Re: Terrestrial Communication

Do you honestly think a vague opinion like that is useful to a discussion that ended 10 days ago?

Re: Terrestrial Communication

I don't think it hurts. Especially since there hasn't been any discussion here in the past 10 days.
