  1. Agreed. VTOL sounds better, though, from a random and nonscientific standpoint. It also sounds more Science Fiction-y (any way to better phrase that?) than helicopter, even though both technologies exist now. For that matter, a helicopter essentially is a VTOL. It would have to be very small to be able to land on, say, a boat, and would have to be very powerful at the same time to be able to not be affected by the wind. For something that will be in a danger area such as that, there would be either many unskilled pilots and many deaths or very few pilots and next to no deaths. Second option would be more obvious for an advanced civilization, especially one that would learn to maximize its population in living on a 3 mile wide floating island.
  2. This is something that would very rarely if ever land. A hundred meter staircase would not be an ideal solution.
  3. Great, thank you. If it would be 80 meters in the air from original sea level and pushed it down 20 more, then thatd get you the 100 feet of clearance. There would still need to be a way to control output, definitely, as the first time you see the city is when its in Egypt. How would it be boarded? Boats obviously couldnt go under very well, and a 100 meter rope climb would be insanely impossible. A sort of ferry-like VTOLs could do it, but then if they get near the air wall thatd mess up or crash them. Any input?

  5. So a pump would not be needed? And how much would that air push down the water?
  6. I appreciated your honesty. Its no problem. But thank you, regardless. And wasnt sure, so thank you.
  7. Ill mess with it a bit later. And yes. Wouldnt it be possible for the torus to intersect the planet's orbit at certain times?
  8. The link just slightly confused me... I was following (kind of) then got lost. If it output enough gas, it could turn into a belt around it, right? And thats what im thinking. Last line in the game would be deus ex machina. For symbolism.
  9. I know. Science Fiction, though, so... And i scrapped hydrogen power. I am a freshman in high school. Compared to people in my grade, I'm very good at science. Training, as in college classes, no. Mandatory classes is all I have. I'm not saying I know tons of science. Not physics, at least. I'm just trying to make a game with friends so I can get a job out of college as a game designer, and get college funds. You have been very helpful, so thank you. And maybe 50, 100 feet in the air.
  10. Yes, but flying over an ocean and it gets a bit trickier. Especially when its flying at a max speed of 35 MPH.
  11. Okay, that would work. How would the city obtain it's water needs? As it is a modern-like city, it would have skyscrapers with rooftop gardens, and the center half mile is a massive compact farm, so food isnt an issue, but water would be heavy to store in large quantities. It is a moving city, so it would likely A: be loud, and therefore B: land at night. Thats a likely way to obtain water, but it would displace tons of water around it as well. Would a 50 foot wall be enough to stop the displaced water from rushing in?
  12. Advanced civilization... cold fusion?
  13. Well, considering it is a highly advanced civilizations flying over the Mediterranean, it shouldnt be too hard to get water... After water is gained via some sort of man-made tornado underneath the city, it could be put through electrolysis.
  14. Im trying to get as much scientific basis as possible for no real reason whatsoever. Im like that, so... ya. And hydrogen power is, if im correct, harvesting the energy made creating water. Love your name, by the way.
