Out of Universe Notes

The Map:

The Nations:

Height Chart:

Regarding Currency:
The basic universal unit is the Galactic Credit Standard (abbr. GCS).



Conversion Rates:
(All units are in their 2500 values)
1.00 USD = 0.35 GCS
1.00 GCS = 2.86 USD
1.00 DKK = 0.88 GCS
1.00 GCS = 1.14 DKK
1.00 USD = 0.40 DKK
1.00 DKK = 2.50 USD
1.00 ILS = 0.03 GCS
1.00 GCS = 0.74 ILS
1.00 GCS = 8.49 TMC
1.00 GCS = 4.54 LSS
1.00 GCS = 39.20 GSS
1.00 GCS = 5.76 HJJ

(Dollars and Krones are their 2015 values, Credits are 2500 value)
1.00 USD = 1.63 GCS
1.00 GCS = 0.61 USD
1.00 DKK = 0.23 GCS
1.00 GCS = 4.36 DKK
1.00 USD = 7.05 DKK
1.00 DKK = 0.14 USD

(Dollar and Krone are values at labeled dates)
1.00 c.2015 USD = 1.76 c.2500 USD
1.00 c.2500 USD = 0.57 c.2015 USD
1.00 c.2015 DKK = 1.66 c.2500 DKK
1.00 c.2500 DKK = 0.60 c.2015 DKK

Regarding: The Galactic Credit Standard (GCS):
GCS is a very stable monetary unit that is accepted in all Earthospheric territories (exceptions include Middle Spatial institutions and Gooogle) as a result of international efforts, cooperation, and participation. However, traditional local currencies are also maintained, though are typically only accepted begrudgingly internationally. The symbol is a reversed '7' with a line that perpendicularly intersects the horizontal bar of the '7' and is to be placed as prefix.

Regarding: The United States Dollar (USD):
USD is a hardy currency that, despite some rough patches in its history, is widely accepted outside the UPA. The UPA has cited "tradition" as to why the name of its money has gone unchanged. The symbol is an 'S' with one or two centred vertical lines intersecting the figure and is to be placed as a prefix.

Regarding: The Krone (DKK):
Despite being relatively inflated to most other currencies throughout the years, due to the relative wealth of the Infinite Penguin Empire and its Infinite Penguin Trading Company, the Krone has risen above nearly all save the Credit. However, due to the Credit being heavily backed by Hexalan and the Hexalan Corporation, its overshadowing should not come anytime soon. The symbol is a digraph of a lowercase 'k' and 'r' (as 'kr') and is to be placed as a suffix.

Regarding: The Israeli Shekel (ILS):
Probably the most inflated currency on the market. The Shekel saw tremendous loss following the most recent Jewish diaspora. Its symbol, in terms of Basic, is a ligature of an 'n' and a 'u' (as '₪') and is placed as a prefix.

Regarding: The Tien Monetary Credit: TBD

Regarding: The Leptonian Staple: TBD

Regarding: The Garm Staple: TBD

Regarding: The Hirian Jang: TBD

The Science:
Copied From Steam Discussion

Gabe wrote:Such as first thing we need to figure out if we do a far science RP is demensions. Like what they are. I understand 1-4, and 5 I get the gist of. But 6-10 are theoretically unproven abstract physics yahoo. Aka I can't understand a word of them. So I decided we should scrap the superstring theory, and put in some more understandable demensions. I'm making a list but I'm running out of ideas, help me out guys!

Physical Demensions (these are demensions that make up shapes and distance):

-D: Absolute Nothing (-0) (ps. I made it up)

0D: Point (0) (ps. I made it up, though it should actrully be a demension)

1D: Length (x)

2D: Width (x,y)

3D: Depth (x,y,z)

Effect Demensions (these change and manipulate the first three):

4D: Time ((x,y,z)W+1ps)
(an example of this is like if you and someone else where standing in the same place at a different time, then your x,y,z would be that same but your w would be different.)

5D: Gravity/Magnetism (((x,y,z)W+1ps)Vps)
(under this logic, electrons are 5D objects. Their charge atracting protons is a way the fifth demension is at work in this RP (but totaly bogus in life.)

6D: Energy and Movement (((x+u,y+u,z+u)W+1ps)Vps)
(ps. made up, vaugely similar to Vector space)

Spoiler:

But this isn't the only thing we need to keep in mind, when making tech remember these:

The light spectrums, could make interesting weapons and techs.
Sonic tech can open some interesting possibilities.
Atomic Manipulation also would be useful.

Anything else I'm forgeting can be added to the possibilites.

Dan wrote:Tech that manipulates the affect of one (or more) dimensions within a field could easily be weaponized. It could also make more more effective storage, FTL travel, etc.

The weapon could throw something back (or forward) in time, annihilate electromagnetic or gravitational bonds atomically (making something into dust), injecting enough energy to explode something or removing it to disable it.

The storage could be done by manipulating the basic 1-3Ds.

As FTL is unfeasible because the energy required to propel something increases exponentially, if you inject energy from 6D you could propel yourself to the speeds needed. Or you could use it to stabilize a wormhole.
Or if you're clever, you could utilize the 3D movement of matter over space and manipulate the time variable. You change your W while the universe changes your XYZ relative to spatial bodies for you in the W difference.

In any case, the ability to manipulate dimensions within a field is a requirement to do anything beyond what could be done in other, less pseudo-scientific universes.

We have a slight issue, in that we don't have clear visual representations for all the races present (EG, Hexalan is UNSC) in both raw picture form (IE, made in photoshop/paint.NET) and custom (IE, made in Garry's Mod). I put forth that we decide on some.

My Input:
Synth (Google): Reapers maybe?
Synth (Hatsun): Androids (Human-like and otherwise)
Synth (ARK): Geth maybe?
Penguin: IDK???
Hexalani: UNSC
Human: Humans (Fashion is a WHOLE different matter)
Tien: Turians (Cockatiels aren't worth the pain IMO)
Lepton: Salarians or Unggoy (Asgardians aren't worth the pain IMO)
Levia: Leviathans
Garm: Krogans or Sangheili (Silurians aren't worth the pain IMO)
Hirian: IDK (No one's using Quarians, how about them? Perhaps Kig-Yar or Yanme'e?)
Butt: IDK???
Margoethan: Collectors

I'd have one for aesthetics, but it'd mostly be a list of I Don't Knows.
The Races list is also mostly Mass Effect only because those are where basically all of my Non-Covenant aliens are.
I've also got the Bugs from the Starship Troopers movies knocking around, just an FYI.

AFAIK following the initial battle, the second wave of Hexalani forces confronts the Penguins on the Penguin border, as the second wave is already en route while the Penguins would have to ready their FTL first.

Actually if the penguins did have to ready their FTL before jumping after ramming the Heavy fleet, the remnants of the first fleet would have engaged them long before. Which is not what the Thor maneuver calls for. The FTL charging would have been happening during the moment the enemy ships are spotted. Everyone knew Hexalan was going to invade, and the plan to enact a counter invasion when the fleet arrived. The plan from the beginning was to cut through your far weaker tissue ships and into your land, for the plan to work effectively the jump would have had to been directly after the ram. BUT, what I do know is that your second fleet would have been approaching quickly. So what probably would have happened is that the Penguins would have reached the second fleet at the Hexalani border, instead of the Penguins laying siege directly on the planets. That sound better?

Alright then. Penguin fleet engages the second wave at the Hexalani border. The second wave'll be a bit confused, but they were ready to start shooting as soon as they dropped out anyways, which would mean their weapons are already primed.

The RP's great and all, but at this point it's just you and me, and, well, despite us being very good at multiple diverse roles, it's just a little bit boring at this point, and I'm also a bit out of my traditional Hexalani mindset in favor of that of the new Hexalan.

So, we've got two options: 'Time-skip' the war and 'restart' in the post-second-galactic-war era, or we could reboot the RP into something different, yet similar.

There's also the potential for us to 'abandon' the RP and possibly establish a modified Penguin-Canadian state in a (hopefully going to happen) new FCRP.

I agree, but I think it would be more efficient to abandon it, if we reboot it, it's still gonna just be you and me, and I think we will just run into the same issue. Let us hope for a grand and glorious new FCRP, where hopefully the Novans are less Novan. This forum can still be used though for keeping the crafters together and Potato Man content though. I also probably will abandon the Penguins for another more stylized faction (my future faction is constantly evolving to become it's perfect state) but the penguins and canadians were great while they lasted.

I will remember to check for more updates!
