Marathon engine put to good use
Posted By: AresDate: 4/3/02 1:47 p.m.

Hey,

In my freshman math class, we have a pretty open-ended project, and my partner and I decided to solve the university's housing woes by designing a 4-dimensional dorm that spaciously houses hundreds of students in a space whose visible 3-D cross-section is smaller than a typical dorm's lobby. The only program I could think to use which could accurately model such a space was Forge. I just have a couple questions:

1. Is there any other program that can model overlapping spaces like Forge does? Not that I'd even consider using it, since the dorm is already modeled... although I'll have to do some explaining as to why I'm carrying a weapon during the in-class presentation :D

(then again, the Zeus-class makes for a nice laser pointer)

2. Why does Bungie call it FIVE-dimensional space, when it is clearly only four spacial dimensions? Do they mean four spacial, and one time dimension? In that case, we're living in 4-D space :P (3 spacial, one time)
