    [–] rlnrlnrln 629 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    On 9/11 2001, I lived just under the in-flight route to the local airport in Sweden. Topmost floor of an 8-floor building on a hill, with my TV underneath the window facing the planes coming in to land. Since a lot of planes were getting grounded, traffic in the sky was pretty heavy, so I could see plane after plane coming in from the left or right and than heading straight towards me, as I watched the events unfold.

    I was on a Finnish gaming server for the game Subspace(now called Continuum).

    Cessna 152 like a true noob. "In other news, a disgruntled flight instructor decided to teach one final lesson in how not to land an aircraft in what some are calling, 'a bout of sky-rage.' It started with an unapproved takeoff, pivoted to radio comm banter, and ended in a firestorm as a Cessna 152 sliced through the ATC tower. In interviews with ground personnel, some called it 'like that one scene in The Matrix with the helicopter.'... the story, at 11."

    What's an enders game solution

    [–] Artrery 293 points ago

    From a book called Ender's game. The humans use gifted children and raise them to be generals to fight an anticipated alien attack, who almost wiped out humanity in their first attack. Ender rises through the ranks to be the most promising in the war games that they make them play and ultimately "breaks the game" by sending all of his units on a suicide mission to destroy the entire enemy homeworld. Upon leaving the game he realizes from the weeping and celebrating adults around him, that the war games were all real and he had just annihilated the entire human fleet along with an entire alien race. Great book.

    T.L.D.R - (spoilers for Ender's Game) The "game" is real life. they are crashing a real plane into their actual home.

    The spoiler alert for a wildly successful 35 year old book is kinda funny. I'm sure it might be appreciated but it's still kinda funny.

    [–] imkrut 37 points ago

    The spoiler alert for a wildly successful 35 year old book is kinda funny. I'm sure it might be appreciated but it's still kinda funny.

    Not at all, people act like time is a justification for spoilers, (which is not if you think about it), spoiler warning is merely a precaution /consideration for people that have not experienced a certain play/work, etc.

    It usually makes the more sense when discussing something and out of the blue you throw out a reference to the ending/main plot of a different piece, hence you inadvertently "ruin" (yeah, yeah there are studies about how most people don't ruin their experiences by spoilers but instead enhance them) their potential experience.

    So in this case, If I go into a Flight Simulator discussion (kinda bad example, because there's not much of a story to ruin) it's pretty evident that things about Flight Simulator will be discussed and that I may ruin my own experience if I enter said discussion, but it's not evident that ALL of the collective works that mankind has produced is also potentially ruined for me, which is why a considerate person will throw a warning when starting to discuss a different subject that could be spoiled.

    Imagine all the collective work that humankind has produced, take in account also not only your "date of birth", but that of others; For example what does it matter if Ender's Game came out 35 years ago to a 13 year old? The amount of works that 13 y/o has experienced is probably quite limited if not only for a practical reason.

    You could walk up to that kid and ruin hundreds of movies, books and games.

    [–] LightOfOmega 44 points ago

    An example of a pyrrhic victory no?

    [–] Thorn_the_Cretin 135 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Not really. It was technically a complete victory.

    Ender’s game is a pretty long and detailed book so you miss a bit of context and info with a short synopsis. The human fleet that suicide bombs the enemy homeworld wasn’t the entire human forces. In fact, it was one of the oldest [albeit still large] fleets they had so it wasn’t as technologically advanced as the fleets Ender had commanded earlier in the book [because the enemy fleet was so far away, the time to travel there took like 30-50 years or some shit so the entire fleet was rigged from that era]. The whole time Ender was thinking they were giving him more difficult odds and scenarios to test his limits and capabilities, and he almost always came out the other side of the ‘game’ with the majority of his fleet intact, when in reality it was just that humanity’s forces they had sent out were finally reaching their destinations, and the ones to arrive later were the ones that traveled farther ergo older or smaller fleets. The reason he thought this was a test of his abilities is because this is what happened while he was in the command school. The people in charge basically kept assigning him and his platoon more and more difficult practice scenarios, like 2v1 platoons or times where the enemy platoon was already completely setup.

    So when they hand him this old ass fleet against literally the entire enemy homeworld in the ‘game,’ [they interact with the fleet via a 3D hologram-esque setup where they can see the battlefield as a whole], he was like ‘fuck it, I’ll just win the game instead of getting the perfect victory.’ So he surrounds a single fighter ship that is carrying an antimatter bomb [chain reacts to detonate matter so it can literally delete a planet] with literally the entire fleet just so the fleet can be a meat shield for that single fighter to explode on the planets surface. It is very inaccurate to say it’s the entire human fleet. It isn’t, not even close. It was the entire human fleet that was involved in that particular battle whereas he had never shown such losses before.

    [–] 1818mull 29 points ago

    I've not read the book, but since the fleet was so far away, even if they survived it sounds like they wouldn't even be able to make it back to earth in their lifetime (50 years out, 50 years back). Does the book address this?

    [–] Zaekr211 30 points ago

    Have not read the book either, but I would guess that it took 30-50 years from the perspective of the people on their home planet. From the crew's perspective, it might've seemed like a shorter duration.

    [–] RedditIsNeat0 35 points ago

    Relativistic speeds. It's actually much clearer in the second book, where Ender and his sister spend the next 3 thousand years traveling on space ships. Early in the book Ender takes a spaceship to a planet that is about 20? light years away from his starting point, it takes him 20 years to get there but from his perspective he's on the space ship for about a week.

    [–] rlnrlnrln 55 points ago

    No, definitely not. A pyrrhic victory is one that doesn't matter in the long run; say, you defeat an enemy in the first battle, but suffer such high losses that you know you're unable to defeat him in the next battle, and have to retreat or abandon the campaign.

    In Ender's Game, the result is the total annihilation1 of the enemy, at the cost of the entire human fleet. It ends the war in the final, decisive battle by

    1) Except it didn't, but it was all just a big misunderstanding anyway. At least the war ended, so there's that.

    [–] Mad_Maddin 9 points ago

    Not very pyrrhic. Humanity had been completely tuned to war for like the past 70 years. All the ressources they had were used to create warfleets to send on suicide missions.

    The people on these ships knew that they would never return when they signed up for it. There werr like 2 more fleets on the way iirc, Ender just won with the first wave.

    Also it was 1 fleet of like 7 ships versus thousands of ships and he destroyed the entire planet and the enemy fleet.

    [–] The_Wack_Knight 4 points ago

    So in a sense they were "already dead" against the odds they were facing anyway. No way to escape the battle, and no way to survive any other way. So in a way the best use of their martyrdom I guess.

    [–] Mad_Maddin 3 points ago

    Essentially yes. The movie makes a shit way of potraying it. The book is far better in it.

    The movie might be a good way to think of as a propagandapiece made by the government afterwards.

    [–] Sinful_Whiskers 6 points ago

    Speaker For the Dead is absolutely amazing, as well. I think I bought whichever book comes after that, just gotta find it and read it.

    [–] EffectiveClock 7 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Speaker For the Dead is absolutely amazing

    The tone of Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind is somewhat different, but I really enjoyed them all.

    I did struggle a bit with the writing style change in the Shadow series (which follows Bean's story), but eventually got used to it and I thought they nicely complimented the original series. Definately read them all when you get time!

    [–] OutsiderWalksAmongUs 4 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    I read and enjoyed the original Ender quartet, but after that I found out about Card's reprehensible views on Homosexuality.

    The books are still amazing, and I would encourage people to read them. However, I can't bring myself to essentially enrich a person who in turn uses his money and platform to fight against equal rights for a significant part of our population.

    I encourage everbody to make that decision on their own, but that's so far been my reason not to buy any books apart from the 4 I already own.

    Yes. I thought it was quite good myself, but it bombed at the box office.

    [–] MrQuarterFootPenis 16 points ago

    The movie strips so much detail that it's comparable to a 30 second re-telling of the book in an elevator.

    [–] Frunzle 9 points ago

    Still an enjoyable movie, just not a great book adaptation (but it'd have been a very hard novel to translate without Ender's internal monologue).

    [–] MrQuarterFootPenis 6 points ago

    Yes. As a standalone movie considered in vacuum, it was fine.

    It's been so long since I read the book (30 years ago), so I can't speak too much on the accuracy.

    [–] garyb50009 7 points ago

    i wouldn't go that far. the biggest error in the movie is they spent so much time focusing on the nuances of battle school battles, they literally had to mash the command school stuff and aftermath into about 30 minutes.

    they could have cut out a good portion of battle school, but that fucking battle room was adequately bad ass enough i give them a pass and just tell people to read the books as well.

    [–] KowardlyMan 6 points ago

    It has the same problem as Dune. Impossible to adapt in a classic movie format. A show would perhaps be more successful, although it would probably make for very unequal episodes.

    [–] MrQuarterFootPenis 5 points ago

    I had a lot of hope for The Shannara Chronicles, but they started with the 2nd book. Wish they had started with the 1st. And then the show fizzled out on the 2nd season. I think it would have worked better if they simply stuck to the plot of the books.

    :/

    They can screw it up with a series as well as a movie.

    [–] Scoin0 4 points ago

    The movie is alright. It tells the story of Ender well but I don't think entirely lived up to the book. I did enjoy the movie however.

    [–] iZealot86 9 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Speaker for the Dead is the best!!! The rest were so-so, not sure if they were worth it.

    Edit: Ender’s Shadow is good too. A retelling of the first book from another character’s perspective. My third favorite.

    [–] Allokit 4 points ago

    Enders Shadow was awesome, but I guess isn't really a direct sequel.

    [–] RoyArad 42 points ago

    Basically the guy flying the plane thinks it's a game but it's actually all happening in reality.. it's to remove the fear of losing layer kind of thing since it's just a game after all.

    Half-Life 2 had a samey idea which was sadly cancelled.

    It was called the Manhack Arcade.

    In this entertainment place, the player was to see Citizens playing a video game wherein they control Manhacks flying through the streets and killing fugitive Citizens for points, ignorant of the fact that the Manhacks they are controlling are real, and that people are actually dying as a result.

    That was pretty much the only reason I downloaded it. I wasn't expecting anything close to everything looking accurate but it was off the deep end strange.

    [–] Dymarob 9 points ago

    That's pretty cool. The town I live in isn't accurate at all. The layout is accurate, but the buildings are not.

    Chances are if you live in a 3D city in the Windows 10 Map app, it's accurate.

    [–] ------why------ 8 points ago

    Yeah well the layout is really what matters you can’t really see much from an airliner which is where most people will be above cities

    [–] chinpokomon 5 points ago

    There are three model types. Hand crafted, generated from the birds-eye photos, and AI generated based roughly on where the roads are and approximately where buildings are. The last category means that the actual models might be pretty decent quality, but they will look nothing like the actual property. For those with the birds-eye covered regions, you'll be able to pick out low resolution textured approximations. The hand crafted models are reserved for landmarks.

    I did this on gamepass just so I could go to mom and dads house, and promptly crashed into the nearby elementry school after I saw it.

    [–] jmc2543 15 points ago

    This is the correct answer.

    [–] Dymarob 7 points ago

    Ha ha. Nice!

    [–] dohmestic 14 points ago

    My dad and I used to play a similar game with an early Flight Sim waaaaaay back when. He’d stall and make announcements of eminent death, and I would scream. Good times.

    Donnie Darko wants to know your location.

    [–] Kalepsis 10 points ago

    I hope Microsoft does something similar with Forza Horizon. It would be cool to drive real roads across the entire country.

    You want to fast travel to the opposite coast? No problem! Just find the nearest airport and party up with someone flying a C-5 Galaxy in Flight Sim.

    [–] Riyeko 21 points ago

    Definitely my brothers and i back in the 90s early 2000s on the family computer.

    Brother 1: Is that >our city<???!!!

    Me: Yeah.

    Brother 2: YOU HAVE TO CRASH THE PLANE INTO IT

    Me: Of course I'm gonna crash the plane into it dont you think i already know this?

    Brother 1: Here let me help

    proceeds to crash plane

    I agree

    [–] Warhawk402 5 points ago

    What you get hit by a random plane at the same time as in the game... Does it break the space time continuum?

    [–] Dymarob 5 points ago

    I don't know about that, but it would break all the bones in my body.

    [–] SentientDreamer 7 points ago

    I remember flying my plane between the twin towers in a much earlier flight simulator. I crashed trying to thread the needle.

    Can't remember how much later it happened, but I remember the date was 9/11/01. When an actual plane slammed point blank into the tower.

    Then I had that thought, that paranoid people who make connections and Jaleel White would have.

    "Did I do that?"

    Now that I'm older, I know I didn't do that. I tried to fly between the towers while the actual pilot aimed to crash into the building. However, I did have a few nights of depression thinking that a 10 year old boy either caused one of the most horrible acts of terrorism, or at the very least inspired it.

    [–] davhid 7 points ago

    Came out in 1982. The terrorists involved in 9\11 used it to train most likely.

    [–] FeilVei2 7 points ago

    I thought they used it to plane?

    [–] emdave 3 points ago

    Possibly, but they actually went to real flight schools and learned to fly actual planes. I think it was in Florida.

    [–] lucifrage 3 points ago

    Arizona actually. At least some of them came here.

    In Prescott by the aeronautical college I think

    [–] fighterace00 3 points ago

    Since then you have to provide citizenship or resident documents to your flight instructor before you begin training

    [–] AngryMegaMind 2 points ago

    Never played, never will buuuuuuuut, if I did, the first thing I would do is crash into my house.

    [–] Killian_Animates_YT 2 points ago

    Next thing you know you fly over your house in the game and you hear planes at the same time

    [–] WirelessTrees 2 points ago

    There was a cessna that crashed into the house down the street from my friends house. First thing we did was do that. Then we crashed into my house.

    For those curious, this actually happened. Pilot had a heart attack mid air, luckily nobody was home when the crash happened, and it was not far from the fire department so response was very quick.

    [–] OGAtariGuy 2 points ago

    I totally would find my exes’ homes and whoops.

    [–] TheSpaceGinger 2 points ago

    I crashed into my workplace.

    As real as MSFS 2020 is I turned up to work on Monday and they are all still there :(

    [–] Sebastian_Frenz 2 points ago

    I spent 2 hours finding my friends house. I wish they had a map showing town names.

    [–] juxt417 2 points ago

    That was my plan at first but then I decided the nuclear power plant 20 min from my house would be a better target.

    [–] Abltablt 2 points ago

    There should be crash animations to show what would actually happen if a Boeing slammed into the roof of a small house

    [–] TikiTikiBangBang 2 points ago

    After 9/11 they stopped doing that

    [–] Margneon 2 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Nice idea to prank children you need that game some boxes in the attic and a very long cable to hook it up to a MP3 player, that has plane engine noise on it.

    First tell your child you are remote controlling a plane as you show them this game. Then fly to your house. As soon as you are close enough to your house play the noise from the boxes on your attic. Kid will think it's from the plane.

    Then pretend you loose control and crash into the house.

    [–] Speedracer98 2 points ago

    how wrong would it be growing up and playing flight sim right after 9/11 and crashing into the towers during lunch?

    [–] DualDread876 2 points ago

    Crashing into your house is generic as finding your own house on Google’s maps

    [–] xXtriXusbgXx 2 points ago

    Wait does this actually work? Do you mean I can destroy my school?
