    How they'll manage to pull off something like this is beyond me. It's an interesting idea though. :naughty:

    Wow it looks like they are also planning to do AI for everyone on the planet. That's insane. I can't imagine how they could finish by September if all they have modeled is Kuwait city.

    On a side note, where can I get one of those hoverboards? :thumb:

    perhaps they can sell it to game manufacturers so that we can have a game based on it :D

    (obviously some regions will be erased in that case, as the US doesn't want everyone to know some things (like any normal government btw, I'm not flaming))

    edit: if that ever happens, and a MMORP gets created, I claim Europe. It's all mine!

    Wouldn't suprise me if that happened at some point. They've done that many times before with flight and battle sims. Actually, the game Battlezone was a watered down version of a tank simulator.
