What kind of large microgravity habitats could exist in OA? Is there a bigger or smaller limit than with ones with standard gravity?

Post: RE: Atmosphere in vec habs and worlds.

Sorry for being unclear, I was mostly thinking about the kind of atmosphere a hab where vecs don't bother to make it biont-friendly (so they can optimize it for themselves) would be like.

In vec habs and on vec worlds, what would be some good atmospheres? A lot of vecs could be adapted to live in vacuum environements but that's probably not the only option or even the best one. Hydrog...

"Synthetics Humans" is just a strange name for a category of beings that are mimicking bionts in general IMO.

An idea that I've seen here (for example for transapients in biont bodies) is to put the brain in the torso instead of the head so it can be bigger. But how much less cramped can you make the torso t...
