Hello! I am DysonSphere. I enjoy theoretical science, physics, etc. When asked if I think aliens are real, I always respond with, "We've got a whole universe out there. Someone's waiting on us, I'm sure."

Hello 1 & welcome

Yes I know what a Dyson Sphere is as many other captains here. I am a big fan of SF.

yes, it is akin to a 'Ringworld' except the entire star is surrounded by a shell (instead of just a narrow ribbon).





(edit because,
1. it's expected
2. I wish to extend a formal invitation  for membership in the Empire to DysonSphere.

3. I'm shameless

Ahh, Niven. Quite possibly my favorite sci-fi author...

Yes, the Dyson Sphere is designed to collect the energy output from the star, reducing the cost of the energy to almost 0.
The theory is that a whole civilization can thrive because of the free energy...

Yes, Rimworld is exceptional!

If you like this stuff, you should also look into Pandora's Star (Dyson Pair) and Rama sagas.
Although it's not exactly about Dyson Sphere, they use similar concepts.

I would like to add these concepts to AG at some point.

I'll voluntarily step down if it comes down to that.  laugh

I'll even give out 10 billion solars to newbies. But he won't do that. Coz he abandoned the game.

He's just teasing people with his update "at some point". laugh
