Megastructure art and animation

Here are two animations I created last year before my previous computer died of exhaustion.

In this one, a starship enters a construction factory for artificial worlds:

And here is a relatively compact Dyson Sphere:

Here are some snapshots of said Dyson Sphere:

The Dyson Sphere is very nice! We could make it a named location in the Archaipelago, if you like.

I also very much like the Dyson SphereSmile It looks like it is being held up by dynamic compression members such as are used to support Kiyoshi (and presumably other similar dysons).

The starship video is also fun, but a bit more abstract and also getting into an area we don't describe as fully (artificial planets) so it doesn't feel as 'OAish' as the dyson.

My 2c worth,

Todd

Sounds like a good idea.

If I recall correctly, I scaled the spheres at roughly 100km (about Death Star sized), so they are basically mini-worlds.
