Tycho Magnetic Anomaly 1 (Monolith)

Video, thanks to nater:

This is the Monolith found on the Moon in the book/film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It does very nasty things to contraptions that get too close to it…

Erm… What does this do? It feels like when I first looked at the Completely Harmless Companion Cube SENT release thread…

I’ll make a video when I get home (hour or so), just because I’m nice. :slight_smile: Plus, a thread over run by


Try flying a ship or contraption within 1000 units of it, and watch what happens. I’ll add the actual effect into the download. Also, thanks in advance for the video.

For a minute I was expecting a crystal that constantly speaks to you in russian, and grants ironic wishes!

It attacks you I think.

well it is the monolith… did any one here read the book? god.

any way,

looks cool DL now.

Obviously no one read the book.

I could go on and on about Darkfriends and Aes Sedai and almost nobody would have a clue what I was talking about. Mind telling us what it actually is / does?

On second thought, now that I think about it, me and my friend got some…stuff, and we might be doing…things, so it might be a bit longer than I thought. :ninja:

Look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monolith
It tells you about it there.

Unfortunately, I could not think of a way for it to terraform Jupiter. Now that I think about it, this would be really annoying if set up in Spacebuild…

Robert Jordan fucking owns.

I’m on Lord Of Chaos right now.

It’s a shame RJ died.


I just finished Knife of Dreams two weeks ago - I want closure :(. If it gets finished, it just will not be the same.

I have to try this when I get home, just to see if it’s as epic as the wiki sounds :excited:.

Short and sweet videos are my favorite, also great when you’re looking for stuff to download. :slight_smile:

So it unwelds props around it?

And eats the things that collide with it, I think that’s it.

Conan was better.

yaaaaay wheel of time :keke:

A nice anomaly for spacebuild(not just empty dull planets.).
but it still just unwelds stuff, and eats it? any more cool stuff it does?
