And to men like him, I said, when perfected by years and education, and to these only you will intrust the State.
Scynne
This is what city planners actually believe.
Chalkdust
Kudos for the editing, which conveys just enough of that "killer from Se7en's notebooks" vibe.

I think the most terrifying detail is at 6:39, where it is revealed that the mathematically perfect city means nobody survives past the age of 60.
Scynne
That was a revelation to you?

Not pictured: The dome over the city, the fish-processing robot.

Innocent Bystander
Most of the food in this city is fish, and plankton. And sea greens, and protein from the sea.

But I don't get why he makes the perfect city seem like the end of the world.

Man Who Fights Like Woman
For me the moment of horror was at around 4:00 when he zoomed in to show the buildings and they were all the same. Every building was the exact same skyscraper, repeated as far as the eye could see. It was like some sort of horrific suburb had become the main city and nobody noticed.

I am currently working on a Box costume for Halloween, mainly to see how many people get the reference.

Also, it needs robot guards to enforce order, or at least Sandmen.

chumbucket
I think the editing and soundtrack just add an overflow of self-importance and aggrandizing not seen since Fatal1ty started posting all of his Quake multiplayer matches on the internet.

Bebido
These stars are for you, Innocent Bystander. By god they're all yours.

This reads like Sim Time Cube.

True story. In grade seven information technology, a required course, part of the cirriculum was to actually play SimCity. I shit you not.

Unfortunately, it was late in the year and during all the NetTrek or whatever we were supposed to be playing before that, me and my friends were playing SimCity during class instead, so when mandatory SimCity came up, we were bored of it and played the other games.

that's why it was so familiar.

Did he say this took him YEARS to do?

Plus I've made prettier patterns in Dwarf Fortress, sucka.

kingofthenothing
yeah, apparently so...

I'm not sure what's up with the Soul Reaver type music and weird flashing oddities (anybody notice the clown?) but I guess if I wasted a ton of my own personal time doing something fucking ridiculous, I'd want to make the project stand out somehow, too.

Camonk
Three years.

Plus his sims don't go crazy and make jewelry out of their friends' bones, like Dwarf Fortress guys.

Then again, he don't care if it's pretty. Only if it's mathematically optimal.

This guy's accomplishments are NOTHING compared to my all-mug-economy in Dwarf Fortress.

NOTHING.

Probably the saddest waste of time ever.

I always tried to make cities I wanted to live in, not factory farms.

So, how's life, cubicle workers of PoE? Still pecking at that keyboard for somebody else?
Caminante Nocturno
All of that work, and you don't wreck it all with a series of disasters?

That one token park in the middle must be the most crowded park in the world.
Wander
No, it's completely empty.

HURF BLURF DUH
It's only there to "increase resident density," like the library.

Severian
I bet Ullillia could beat it, but won't try because there's no jumping in this game.

Udderdude
The only way this could be more perfect is if he used the city scene music from Koyaanisqatsi.
unknown rebel
No, that's the soundtrack to ant farm, and the noise of an ant farm is the soundtrack to this.

athodyd
This is a pretty good illustration of the fact that ever since SimCity 3000, Sim City has been less about designing fun little towns that you might want to live in and more about figuring out the exact size of city block necessary to ensure continued profit.
memedumpster
I thought this was kind of neat.

I kinda want to give this guy nuclear weapons and Utah, just to see what happens.


Banal Intercourse
That one corner missing from Utah's geometry would confound him.

I wanna give Utah to Nuclear Weapons.
