I think I've figured it out. Remove unguided exploration and replace it with guided exploration. Instead of the player traveling the world and expecting to find interesting things wherever they go, the player has a specific list of things and a specific way to find them.

One method will probably be pictures like the ones taken by Zelda in botw. The player sees these 3D screenshots from the menu and then tries to find where they were taken in the world. Another method will probably be geometry based. Have a statue that points to a treasure, have a sphere of rocks with a treasure at the center, etc. The player knows from the menu exactly where the clue is and exactly what the clue means, but they have to demonstrate an understanding of the fourth dimension in order to find the reward.

These methods should be far better since the world can stay fairly sparse while still pushing players to visit more places than just the beast locations.

Ha, I get it.

Because a shadow of 4D objects is 3D!  


Jk
Ding Ding ding!

Right now sotc is pretty much what I'm going for. The game started out as 4D botw but I scaled everything back to keep things workable.


I'm worried about how empty the game is though. I want it to be large enough to have different biomes and feel like a place that is fun to explore. 4D trees and objects are cool but most areas would just be big and only interesting from a distance.

Sotc worked because it never expected the player to go off script and explore on their own.

So brexit is off?
Unfortunately not. There's a no confidence vote tomorrow, and who knows what after that. Everyone's going to be fighting over what they want to happen, I'm just hoping we get a second referendum.

I might add a horse type creature to the game. That way I can have a full mountain range. I also might scale up the beasts too.

Brother got a VR game called Blade and Sorcery.  

Kinda cool, kinda weird.  

Weird stuff:
Heavy swords swing slower.  So the tip of the sword basically swings a lot slower than your arm does.  


Kind of weird, kind of cool:
This is the second game I've played that tries to figure out where your legs and arms are oriented.  

Sometimes with very weird results.  

Cool:
This game is kind of like Skyrim VR actually built for VR.  

You can do a lot more stuff with swords.
You can also physically climb ladders.  



Something that I've been wanting is an Uncharted VR game.  
Climbing is already done in several games.  There's already plenty of shooters.  Could be cool .(I'm sure I've already mentioned it)

118 rebels is absolutely crushing for the tories, holy shame. Only 3 labour MPs voted for, that's nice.

No confidence vote called for tomorrow. Government expected to win that.

huh? how is it starwarsy?
Replace Space with Ocean and its classic star wars. Main character and a few select others with 'force'-like abilities. Ships that fly/ propel around very sci-fi looking, dark environments. Many alien looking races, crazy visual effects, lightsaber/ trident duels, main hero is 'the chosen one'.

Very Star Wars.

How does a government lose a vote? Who were they voting against?
"Government" in the UK refers to the prime minister and his/her cabinet. I guess its kind of similar to the "administration" in the US. Most ideas/ laws they put forward have to be voted on by MPs (including the 30 MPs that make up the cabinet). There aren't any executive powers for the government. Anyone can put forward a vote/ amendment to a current bill to parliament. The ones put forward by the government are always agreed by cabinet and are expected to pass through the house.

Normally, the ruling government's party has a majority in the house and their own party will vote with them, meaning pretty much all motions they put forward are voted "aye". Sometimes there are rebels within a party but they usually aren't numerous enough to force a loss.

This current government has only 317 MPs (out of 650) and are held up by a confidence and supply agreement with the DUP (who have 10 MPs). Sinn Fein hold 7 seats (Irish party) and they never vote, so total voting MPs are 643.

Normally on a huge deal for the government like this, the entire opposition will vote against them (316 in this case). However, the DUP won't vote for the deal due to parts of the deal about Northern Ireland and in fact said they'll vote no, so that was 326 total against.

So at this point, the government needed the entirety of their own party to vote for their deal plus they would need 5 members of the opposition to flip and vote for them. What actually happened was that over 100 conservatives voted against their own government (which was roughly expected, but not quite in the number that actually happened), and the government lost by a massive margin.
