collab 2

There’s this star wars RTS game w/ a map editor. I’m trying to get a bunch of people to all collaborate on

building a dream planet out of it.

~~~long time ago/now/to come, galaxy far away/on your computer~~~~

The idea, basically, is to build another world, dream-city/ -forest/ -mountain/ -space colony

r just a landbody that makes you happy

a daydream generator

r like a Temporary Autonomous Zone, an anarchy

free space

or, but, of course, if you like, a dystopia, some hellish dictatorships.

(IT DOESN’T HAVE TO MAKE STAR WARS CANONICAL SENSE but it can,

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO MAKE PHYSICAL/ECOLOGICAL SENSE but, again, it totally can.)

You can add as much or as little as you like, work with/develop other people’s contributions or not,

claim+wall off your own patch of land or not.

The way it’ll work is that we’ll ping pong the work file between each other. Only one person can work on the

file at a time so we need to keep track of who has the file, and the most recent iteration. Ill start a google gr-

oup to keep track and to provide the info re: this, as well as tips and tricks for using the map editor.

**********************THE FINAL PROJECT IDEAL*************************

Something utterly anarchic and beautifully emergent.

Ultimately, i’ll screencap the whole map, suture it together, and we’ll present it somewhere/somehow, and all the previously anonymous collaborators can meet each other.

I’d really love to print it and display it full-screen size on the walls and floors (of perhaps the Flux Factory), as well as make an online version.

+ If anyone wants to write/make something more (stories, lore, civilizations, cultures,clothing, species, like,

music) i’d link their additions to the map’s pertinent features.

************************************************************************************

Last thing: if you need more room/ want a totally autonomous map, let me know: while we’re gonna start w/

a giant (de)central(ized) map, you can always make ur own map and, w/ a bit of transition at the border, i c-

an just attach it to the side of the big one.

thanx & best,
