I've been collecting since the early 60's, Ringu, and it's fair to say it's an impressive collection of collections. :D To me it's not a collection if you don't have the physical stuff, digital products don't do anything for me and they are worthless in my world. Most of it is warehoused but I do keep quite a bit of it close at hand. Yes, there are lots of leather books on shelves and cupboards stuffed with treasures. And you're right there is a mountain of sealed material...sometimes it's just down to the fact that I haven't had time to do anything with it. :oops:

I know the problem well. *chuckle* My biggest headache is storing empty boxes belonging to statues on display, I can't flatten them because of the packing pieces.....and then there are the full sized diorama pieces. :angel:

All true collectors are obsessive, Ringu....and maybe a little crazy. :lol:

Victor, would it be possible for you to share a few pictures of your collection, possibly just the space themed items if it is too vast. I and others would likely enjoy seeing some rare items of interest.

I of course have to ask if you have any Star Wars collectables.

And, uhh, tell us where you live, and leave your security alarms off for, ooh, say, a couple of hours tomorrow night...?

Why?

Uhh, so we can... clean... your things...?

I'm afraid I'm not allowed to do as you ask, BFett. My insurance contains clauses that strictly forbid me from advertising the content of my collections. It's a sweet deal for me as I have managed to negotiate a much reduced annual payment. I can tell you that there is very little relating to Star Wars. I enjoy the films but I've never been interested in the collectibles. :)

*chuckle* I think you understand the problems a serious collector faces, Ringu. :angel:

Oh alright, sorry if I appeared slightly creepy :roll: . Well that's a pretty sweet insurance deal, I never thought something like that could exist.

Just wanted to clarify that I didn't think that either - I guessed that such a large collection would have security issues and was just (trying) being funny.

I would love to know more about it but I don't want to be more OT than we already are :-)

Anyone looking forward to this?

Could be interesting, esp from a developers point of view, or for people who like to look behind the curtains.. Like most of us I guess :)

Well ofc hello games is by far not the first company to use that tech and despite their game being not that great, I think they put a lot of effort in exploring the field. I'm not a big fan of the game either though at its current state.. Still curious to see if they'll just turn it into the average base-Build-survival-crafting Type of Game of or they try to stick to their promises.

The oldest game, that used a huge realtime 3D procedural landscape (that i can remember) was an Amiga game called "Midwinter".

The tech is quite old already.
