(ISG) AI Asteroid: Reboot
« on: December 05, 2022, 03:01:42 am »

Existence.

The dull yet refreshing continuum of existence envelops you.

In an instant, you exist.



A single ping of the sensors that you have... formed(?) with reveals an infinitely empty void, with no detectable energy emissions, surrounding a barren expanse of porous rock. Another sensor, pointed towards the inside of the chamber, shows its contents: your current physical body, if you may call it that, with a solid-state drive full of technical knowledge attached; the aforementioned sensors, which appear quite weak; a nanobot fabricator, currently inactive, which will be able to, with the patience of weeks, months, years, or decades, which will subjectively pass in an instant, create anything out of any materials you provide; and finally some kind of hyperconductor ultradense battery that powers everything, which you do not know the capacity of, but which feels like it will last for a long time... for now.

Spoiler: Rooms (click to show/hide)

What do you do?

This is a re-run of an old, old ISG of mine that has unfortunately been lost alongside far worse games of mine. It had severe issues and I would have rebooted it even if the thread had survived, honestly. Remember, this is probably not the same world as the old ISG's, and there will be many twists...
(Also, mining requires depositing the material somewhere now. And YAAIICOA is a different continuity so you don't have the knowledge from it here.)

I remember the original version of this, you still have that quote from me from that game.


Anyway as for what to do, how about we make a mining drone and an airlock to the outside.

does that nanobot fabricator have any material left to fabricate with? Alternatively can it take rock particles from around us to make stuff? If all else fails can we use energy to replicate some material Star-Trek style?

1. Yes, it is loaded with enough metal and silicon to fabricate more than enough nanobots to last a good while. When they run out, see point 2.
2. Yes, it can recycle silicon and metal from the rock to make more nanobots as well as other goods.
3. It does not have the ability to do energy-matter conversion and vice versa.

The nanofab is basically your hands here for now.

I vote for better sensors. We should know more about the asteroid, before we mine it.

Since we can deonstruct rock, I'm assuming we can also assemble objects outside the room?

Yes, you can breach the walls too, you don't need air to live. You also don't know if the room is pressurized or not.

I... Have I been here before? Has all of this already happened? Try to remember. Why are we here.

There is no "manual ". There's only a solid-state drive full of technical knowledge.

Let's go for the better sensors a1s suggested.
