This reminds me of why some of us love videogames. We can pretend to do stuff we will never be able to do in real life.

Answer: NO. The end.

it would be better to build a city floating with a grativy field, although we still don't have the tech for it, but some of the newest train move floating 1mm above the rail so it's doable if fully researched (=

Some good maths and science there, Lucy. I guess the only feasible solution would be the mastery of gravity. Going down an avenue you mentioned, quantum physics still hasn't found the answer to a complete understanding of gravity so if we can solve that 'little' conundrum (sorry!) then floating platforms etc could be a possibility.

Great to have you back producing vids again, keep them coming.
