    Just wrote my reply. I chose a beauty valley, with Buddhist/Hindi temples, that hold dark secrets.

    Also: I COULD HUG YOU LEGION!! I believe it was you, who said you had a good feeling we'd get something on February, and here we are Day #1! Nice way to start the month.

    I'm surprised how accurate that prediction was xD But as far as I have seen we have up to 2 months break between posts.

    Probably you already knew about this:

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimdobs.../#6a0b6c3f1ba6


    I'll love to raid or explorer something like this, either could be one in one of the temples we already saw in premiere trailer or somewhere else.


    And how about a city fusion of Angkor Wat and Hong Kong? That amazing Khmer architecture mixed with cyberpunk modernity? Well, you already did something similar in debut trailer but Angkor Wat exhume another type of aura, if you know what I mean


    And how about floating isles made of plants similar to the ones in lake Titicaca from Uru people? The last remnant of an ancient civilization...


    We also need a Petra-like city, in the vast desert, a commercial enclave of refined people.


    Since China is included in this, are you planing to recreate the Old Summer Palace? Sadly destroyed by barbaric ignorants. Perhaps a very wealthy man/woman what to recreate it as it was in its former glory using hybrids to construct it:


    Or a enigmatic city lost in a vast planetary ocean similar to Nam Madol?


    A metropolis in the top of a mountain similar to Machu Picchu:


    With cyclopean walls like Sacsayhuaman (including that odd random cut pattern of the stones that seems to be a way to prevent that earthquakes destroy buildings):


    Or Cuzco walls:


    And how about the rainbow mountains of Zhangye Danxia, perhaps the home of one of the most exotic alien species we will find (BTW are we going to discover new alien intelligent species?):


    A town in constructed in a cliff, similar to some native american tribes:


    Or hot springs on rocks like in Pamukkale, Turkey:


    What if there was a place like Cerrado, Brazil but instead of termites nest all those were constructions? A perfect symbiosis of technology and nature?


    One more option Mount Roraima, quite sui generis place, and an excellent location for a pirate hideout


    What if we have a city under a glacier? Like Mendenhall Glacier Caves, Alaska?

    And how about this:
    http://www.newsweek.com/climate-chan...c-ocean-709707

    If is possible that a zone in our oceans could remain unaltered for 1000 years well same thing could happen in the immensity of space, don't you think?

    Well, that's all for today folks!

    I'd especially like to see something similar to the nam madol ruins pictured there and the towns/villages carved into cliff faces.

    All of those images are amazing~

    Idea

    In BGE2 I would really like to see cultural /religious wonders like pyramids mixed with a futuristic style (like the pyramid from enslaved) and something like an enemy pirate crew in the style of the ancient egyptian animal gods like Horus the falcon or sobek the crocodile

    Also I would really like to see big theme based space ships like from some indigenous tribes or something more futuristic like a big casino with slot machines and games.

    As planetary environment i also could imagine something like a junkyard or a city build on clouds or some underwater city with human-fish type species or like in bioshock, completely abandoned but with some rare tresure

    And I would like to travel on my Pirat ship through space listening to some pirate songs like in assassins creed black flag but in a kinda futuristic way

    Inspirations could be one piece, assassins creed black flag, cowboy bebop, borderlands, enslaved: odyssey to the west

    What du you think about this?

    Thanks! I'm glad you like it and I really hope it will provide some inspiration to BGE team!
    Now let me elaborate some of previous suggestions and add others

    One thing that made me love BGE even more was the inclusion of astronomy in it... yeah, it was very simple and small but I loved very much that small detail when we can detect other sidereal objects in Hillys' night firmament... so let's talk about planets.

    Perhaps you're aware of the presence of enormous oceans in some of our solar system bodies, specifically Europa (quite coincidence isn't?) and Encedalus:




    So keeping on with the idea of a city under a glacier, a moon or planet of this type could be possible, since it is theorizes that Europa's ice outer shell could be 3-4 km thick. Probably the rest is water but let's imagine that, somehow, exists gargantuan bubbles of air inside this ice shell, and life (or intelligent alien beings if BGE team decide to add more species besides the DomZ and the Nazh ), or human/hybrids explorers while searching for resources/refuge have found this place and build a city on it. In order to prevent that alien/human/hybrid activity create more heat that the ice shell could handle, they may use cold fusion (although is a very controversial subject, often listed as pseudoscience) in order to obtain the necessary energy for their daily needs (maybe this place could be only inhabited by Inuits walrus).
    This could be a twist in the old myth about a world inside a planet ("Les mondes engloutis" someone? )


    As several people posted, a visit to Hillys could be fantastic, so in that case we need ocean cities!!!


    I like more this other concept since those "tentacles" are used to take advantage of ocean waves to generate energy:


    And talking about underwater cities the strange ruins from Yonaguni, Japan (man-made or not), could be another source of inspiration for BGE team:


    And what if we get cities underground? Like the one in Derinkuyu, Turkey:


    Another great hideout for pirates or a haven for hybrids refugees:


    And for our most deep disbelief, we know now that there could be absolutely colossal crystals inside caves (Crystal Cave, Mexico):


    One more option for a quest to raid and explore huge treasures!

    And there exists the possibility that planets similar to Saturn and Jupiter may have diamond rains

    http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-24477667


    And what if in our voyages we found a very ancient ruins, in some forgotten planet, that resembles hindu temples?




    Similar to the Balochistan Sphinx, India (although could an exceptional example of pareidolia).
    What would we do then, if we found a place like this, in supposedly never explored sector? Are the man-animal gods real? Perhaps a plot twist ala Twilight Zone

    The Salar of Uyuni, Bolivia could be a nice combo to Pamukkale, Turkey hot springs:


    Maybe the home of hybrid pink flamingos!


    About the termites mounds, would be fantastic if those are mixed with elements from Casa Batlló and Casa Mila, both from Spain. Maybe the residences of rich people in System 3 (hey! talking about systems, what about System 2? So far no info about it, if it exists)




    Returning to proposed Angkor Wat + Hong Kong cyberpunk fusion, what if we throw in the mix Metropolis (1927 movie) and Gunung Padang, Indonesia?


    Gunung Padang:




    These rectangular, hexagonal stones remain me of Giant's Causeway, Ireland and Nam Madol:


    As I wrote before, the fascinating city of Ganesha that you guys show us in premiere trailer already have many elements that I'm proposing, but how about one more city to delight and amaze our pupils? One more wonder to explore and discover?


    Talking about that unaltered patch of sea for 1000 years... what if we found a place where time was maintained also unaltered... or even more, like in Portal videogame there are gateways inside it, but instead of being transported from one place to another, these would be temporal gates that leads to another periods of time, in the past or in the future? Perhaps one place like this is the Moksha cosmic gate?

    What if because of this the hybrids of the future become the gods from the past?
    MIND BLOWN!!!

    And finally, that image of Radio Cheeta remind me of a couple songs that perhaps would inspire you: Cosmos Theme and Intergalactic Radio Station, both by the one and only Vangelis.
