Hey /tg/, I see a lot of art threads, but never any about robots. Can we have a robot art thread? Dumping what I have.

I've been thinking about there being a race that is SUPER into technology and robots.
The race themselves are actually pretty docile; most crime is either petty retribution (like writing thousands of bad complaints about their co-workers online) or theft (which is a serious crime)
But I was thinking that they have a police force who are more like technicians, going around and finding defective robots and putting them down/fixing them.

Is that reasonable? I've never been interested in robots and sci-fi type stuff.

It could be if the robots hold a sufficiently complex programming or are otherwise sentient or semi-sentient. Most would be no threat at all (a window cleaner sprays an office worker with soap) but some might be horribly dangerous and potentially cause a blood bath (some automated construction crane decides that the beam he is holding is actually half the length and weight it really is, or a security drone's IFF programming mistakes potatoes for hand grenades) Mostly I would imagine the more interesting part of the job would be hunting down robots that flee to the lower city (assuming a city this advanced would have a large subterranean network of maintenance tunnels and infrastructure)

Maybe the robots in question would hold a limited purview, and faults in programming could cause them to become fully self-aware and run off, posing a danger to the well being of others. I would imagine it would play out a lot like the auto-rav mechanics in Ergo Proxy, which, come to think of it, is almost exactly what you proposing.

There are actually three tiers to robotics; the race lives in giant floating cities and a lot of what they have is automated by simple AI maintaining the cities floating mechanisms, water, food and things like that.

Then there are those who were created to do jobs that the race doesn't want to do (no one wants to manage the sewers) and do menial tasks; they've got enough programming to do their job and do some other things. Like you could ask one to turn on the light without encountering a error and it going on a murder spree.

And the third level of robot is sort of like... almost human. Very advanced programming and AI that they use to raise their young. (Because who's going to take time off work to raise a kid? Let the droids do it)

are there other races that they would need to defend themselves from, or other factions of this race? if so automated military units would be a potential danger if they malfunction, otherwise I would imagine the greatest dangers coming from the infrastructure AIs timing a red light wrong or a nurse droid going postal in a day care center.

Uhm... No I don't think there are.
From what they have explored of their galaxy they have come to understand that they are the only sentient life in the universe.
And before the establishment of the World Government there was an issue of warring cities, but since the rise of The Leader those uprisings are a thing of the past.
Now war is more like.... games.

But there are giant monsters that populate the planet below.... Which is why they moved to the sky.

see, "giant monsters" would fall under the things you are supposed to mention first.

Anyways, what about an underground society of runaway robots that have become self aware and live in constant fear of persecution and summary execution by the organics who simply assume them to be glitches in programming?

>> No.29591444

Or there's this

>> No.29591503

The monsters are sort of a non-issue; they've sort of gone on a planetary purge. Over the years they've used their tech to wipe out the monstrous species that could fly. Now there are only a few left who have learned that the city defense systems will blast them out of the sky if they get too close.

Only those who live on the ground live in fear of the monsters (and there is a sizable number of them on the ground.)

>> No.29591693

I did forget to say though that I like your idea though.
I see it being a cult made up of the more advanced parental units; they're pretty close to real life and they're not regulated by the government.

>> No.29591853

It's just stuff I came up with.
I sort of ended up adopting a fanrace a friend of mine created for a homestuck game. So I've been having fun making up things about them?
I've never done a lot of things in sci-fi settings before so its just been something for fun.

>> No.29593796

Sadly, there were several reasons they canceled it. One, GW was doing badly and running in the red when they were pushing to release GW2, so they needed to trim things to funnel money towards their bottomless moneypit. Two, they wanted to release their Korean game Blade and Soul or whatever in the States and didn't want an American production(which was one of the only games they had running in the black continuously) overshadowing things. What makes that second even more fun was that the game they wanted to release STILL HASN'T COME OUT IN THE US.

What made the whole situation more of a kick in the crotch was NCSoft claiming CoH wasn't really making enough to keep going, yet valuing it at such a vastly overinflated worth when people expressed interest simply so that nobody would purchase the franchise(without being allowed the original CODE even) and this be competition. A wonderful "FUCK YOU!" to everyone, wasn't it?

>> No.29593798

I can't even have fun with the hero creator since the fun of making new characters is overshadowed by not being able to to play with them in the game.

>> No.29593932

Damn, I know about CoH not bringing in enough cash, but I did not know about NCSoft focusing on another game. And them overinflating the worth is just infuriating.

I remember reading about when they released City of Heroes in Korea, and the game was a complete 180 compared to Korean MMORPGs in that character death wasn't that big of an issue and you could level up easily with many different characters. So it was seen as too easy.

Maybe it is me getting older, but any other superhero game just falls short.

Internal politics. Paragon was an American studio, it was running as a small profit (Profit, as in they were still earning more than they spent!) with a loyal fanbase.
Parent company by that point was Korean, as were their primary studios.
They wanted to focus on their own studios and pretty much burned Paragon down, fired everyone and shuttered the doors and asked an absurd amount for anyone else to buy it lest it compete with their own stuff.

Hell, that game spoiled me for any other MMO, period.
