The Hard Light Productions Installation
Here's a random thought that just came to me:  What would the HLP facility actually look like?  Thought it might be interesting to see what any of you think.  (Knowing some of the people here, they would want it to look something along the lines of "terrifying" or "mind-****ing".)  Heck, maybe somebody might do a model!  So........what are your thoughts?  <braces for possible torrent of replies.>

It would look a giant white glove surrounded by twelve sleeping cows. Why? Because Shrike is secretely a French avante-garde visual artist, and would use the opportunity to express his frustriation with the loss of the subjecitve thought-experience as reflected in the the hegemony of the post-industrial Lacanian dialectic.

The bar would look like this:



They sell headz, fishes and Bosch Power Mix over the counter.

I see HLP to look something rather like Half Lifes "Citidel".

Depends on budjet... Since the income is low, the facility would actually be a hovel, something like in Black & White game. :D

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
I drew my rendition of it based on the HLP movie some time ago, the shape is based on how I made people move back and forth from sector to sector, bla bla bla, all that stuff (these are all old, obviously my drawing skill has improved a little :)):

The station herself:


Hard Light Forum (the squares are all "threads" - the little couch things):



A Hard Light Defense Turret:



Hard Light Control Room (aweful perspective on this one :():



Grandeur's bridge (more perspective errors):

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

That is one of many things I wanted to hear.  Tho, if that's true, once again considering the people who frequent here, we would have to be talking about one heavily modified Arcadia.

 :) Terrific stuff! Keep it coming!!

EDIT:  Unknown Target, I like the drawings.  Did you consider putting in a secluded section of the station for all the wierdest and/or most unpleasant types here?  If so, make it jettisonable.

do not torment the sleep deprived artist, he may be vicious when cornered,
in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Haha, that looks AWESOME Turnsky! I was wondering what happened to that :D Great job, my only complaint is that the docking pods should be farther away from the middle, methinks, but I LOVE that :D

By the way, just doodled this...doodle, heh :D
