It's the only shovel you get.  If you break it, that's it.

I can't quite imagine the machine that would be able to move the mountains ..



This will do. This and a bit of time. That is what he meant. No-one is asking for the mountains to move in an instant. But if some crazy bastard wanted to. They could get a shovel and try.

I am a crazy bastard and I'll do it :>

1,000 AI slaves with shovels.. No, this will not do.

1,000 Human players with shovels digging me a mountain pass so my gold train can move through them much more efficiently.

Now when people on reddit argue with me that nobody needs the whole world as a game. And I argue people want to do real world things. I can prove it with the existence of that.

Want to be a commando? Fine.. but Hanz over there wants to clean the streets in outerra.. and Iincyo wants to drive buses http://www.simshack.net/product_info.php?products_id=305 and Billy Bob wants to work on a farm http://www.amazon.com/Farming-Simulator-2011-Platinum-PC-DVD/dp/B005YB8I4K

WOW.. A garbage truck sim http://www.excalibur-publishing.com/games_sims.htm

Of course I did. But who would want to admit that.

I guess you are right.
Maybe no gamer needs the whole world as a game yet. Military organizations, meteorologists, sim people etc. could utilize it I suppose.
For games, the hard part after the hard part of creating the entire Earth will probably be filling it with content.

Trust me - that would be hard work, but satisfying as hell...

Hello All,

Yes you can't play everywhere at once but there is definitely allot of 'want' for a open world as a base for large scale military simulations, being able to have engagements all around the world without having to painstakingly generate half the terrain would be a huge asset to games like ARMA series or even Civilisation games.

Atm allot of developers of war/combat games spend huge amounts of time getting the terrain right/comparative to real-life, all that time could be cut out. Only thing needed is to populate the region, and general clean-up.

Outerra is definitely looking to be a fantastic toolset for indie developers, interested to see how human character systems turn out, but atm the vehicle systems in place look quite impressive. One could make a game based on that alone  (i.e. WorldOfTanks).
