Re: What is the future of Gundam??

Alternate universe stories have been the Gundam franchise staff's one creative outlet for ages now... though even that well has apparently dried up, given that their current AU flagship ( Gundam Build ) is literally just a thinly disguised commercial for MSV gunpla. This franchise is stagnant as f*...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

You'll have to point out which publications, exactly (I'm curious), utilize that terminology. Honestly, I've never seen 野史 used in publications before, and a cursory Google search doesn't yield much on that term (less than 10,000 hits), which is really weird. As for 異説, this is used in Gundam Offic...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

The problem is that this EXACTLY what you are doing. Nobody is going to agree with you about your 0083 statement, so that's just your personal head canon. You go and say stuff like "Origin isn't canon" as though that's some definitive, factual statement on the matter, when it's really just your opi...

Re: How advanced should technology be to built spaceships as spacious as in fictions

Say, what kind of people would you want to be on a colonuization spaceship? Scientists and doctors are a given, but what other job/talent/attribute should you look for? Presumably that the ship could build robots to do away with most of the labour and manufacturing jobs? And, let's just say that th...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

This is complete exaggeration. Long-running franchises like Star Trek, Star Wars, etc frequently contradict themselves and will describe the same events differently. Gundam is no different, and these discrepancies have already happened with previous OYW OVA series. There is nothing in Origin or Thu...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

A simple zero in the model number now doesn't change anything. It's still denoted as the 2nd unit. You're splitting hairs with that one. If you can only figure out the difference in the numbering, you have serious problems in your sense of canon. No core block system, no atmospheric reentry capabil...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

As if specs and whatnot haven't been all over from the beginning. Explain the RX-78-02 and RX-78-2. To my understanding, canon means the one and only officially accepted version of the history/story, RX-78-2 is, 02 is not. But you didn't provide a source for where it isn't. The material still exist...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Please tell me where it is EXPLICITLY stated that the Origin is not canon. I need an exact quote and or citation for this ZOINKS statement. If you're calling out the fact that the agriculture blocks were hit, keep in mind the original space colony artwork from the show depicts them as such so that ...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Origin is more canon than a teory on layered structures. Skycrapers are layered structures. We dont need more layers to put people. Skyscrapers are included in my layered structure options in case you didn't catch it. The problem is just that they didn't even show that much skyscrapers in any of th...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

We can, in fact, say with certainty that there are not multi-layer colonies and that agricultural space is separate from living space in the typical colony... because we see in Gundam: the Origin that agricultural blocks are gravity block structures separate from the main body of the colony. One of...

Re: Could modern roads withstand the weight of MS?

If you take the current design of MSs, you will find that most of them should have a pretty low ground pressure. I made a sample image in scale before: https://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201705/e6a2ce311603d6e7222957affe6d7363.JPG PMX-003 The-O, M1A2 Abrams and RX-78-2 Gundam. Look at the right foot o...

Re: Some Future GPX questions.

Each person a square feet? Are you serious? :lol: Yes and no. I am simply doing a calculation of the area per person as given by the 30 million people filling the plains equal in area to the given dimensions of an O'Neil Cylinder, showing the absurdity of thinking they can fit them in one layer.

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

I distinctively remember a scene in 0083 which Gato in his GP02 tried to sneak on the Federation fleet, but was discovered by an autonomous gun-satellite (a shame that I couldn't recall such a device appeared anywhere else). So they probably wouldn't use Balls as early warning & defense system. And...

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

If I am not mistaken, Io and his two friends in Thunderbolt won some kind of similar contest to Kamille, too; and since it was before 0079 I guess they competed with space pods or something similar. That remind me, when was the last time Balls were deployed on the frontline, and when was they decom...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Hi, the original oneill numbers on island 3 says millions, not a certain number. Furthermore, it is not clear whether he refers to two ballistically united colonies or one. However, the calculations are quickly made and if you put 30 million in a colony of 32km x 6.5 you have the density of the wor...

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

Apart from greater operational versatility in the field, the one reason I could maybe see someone using Mobile Suits for heavy labor applications was if they were buying used Mobile Suits from military disposal sales (e.g. the Hobby HiZack) at a price point that made a used MS cheaper than a new wo...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Yes, a colony can hold up many millions but 30 millions are too much. In Gundam we see that many colony is between 3 and 10 millions. Each colony (open type) is 325 square km. With a density like new york of 10000 ab we have 3.250.000 ab. With a density like manila of 45000 ad we have 15.000.000 ab...

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

Weren't Mobile Suits developed from heavy colony construction equipment in the first place? I doubt they're useful for much else besides colony maintenance. Basically. I also don't see them being able to do anything too sophisticated. They do not have motion capture as a means of control and thus a...
