I actively attempted to fling myself as far as possible

To do this, I sat in a cyclops while in creative, and spawned various creatures and varying amounts of them to get as much distance and airtime as possible

What I ended up landing on is 40 sea dragons.

For the first 2 minutes, I just flew at incredible speeds at a perfect 45 degree angle. I'm sure I cleared the entire world map in the first 5 seconds.

By the time I reached 20 kilometers, my hands and the entire UI began shaking violently and glitching out

Around 50 kilometers, I started to return to the surface of the planet, the world beneath me visually glitched

I finally hit the water and skid across the surface for a bit, finally coming to a stop at 52,959 meters away from the lifepod.

I would have built a seamoth at this point and plummeted into the depths to see what would happen, but I doubted that I would even be able to enter it, and my thalassophobia kicked in and I had to get out of there :x

I'll continue my experiments to test the limits of the game, and the unity engine

    That actually is really impressive.
    I'm a stupid person who makes stupid games and constantly self-deprecates his stupid life because he's a stupid idiot.

    Yeah, I'm a bit messed up.

    You discovered Subnautica's "Far Lands" it seems. Would be interesting to see what that'd do to the map if it was still a procederally generated world :lol:

    Any chance you can hook us up with some vids though, I mean screenshots and a flight log are all fine and dandy, but you know... Videos rule, timelapse that baby up \o/

    I might get OBS and go through the process again, I'm pretty sure my computer could render 1080p video and play the game at medium settings

    If I do that I'll definitely upload a version with the ducktales moon theme, when I did this the first time that's the first thing I heard in my head lol

    There's some weird glitch where if you're inside a cyclops or lifepod and spawn a massive amount of something, you can get flung from the inside at breakneck speed. The first flight was accomplished with 40 seadragons, the second flight was accomplished with I think 60. I tried spawning up to 100, but out of the 10 times I tried it just flung the cyclops and left me stranded in the safe shallows with dozens of pissed off glitchy sea dragons lol.

    First test video is up, no luck yet. The first time I tried this stuff I managed to do it about 3 times out of 10, I've done it probably 20 times so far and haven't been flung yet.

    https://youtu.be/VP100zUcNsg

    One thing I've discovered is that there's 3 possible outcomes to spawning a massive amount of large creatures while in a cyclops:

    1. You get ejected from the water at incredible speeds and just fly and fly and fly because the game has weird gravity
    2. You get ejected downward into the ground, and if you're going fast enough you'll clip through the ground and keep going a good ways
    3. The most common thing that happens is you get stuck in place or simply slung a short distance as the cyclops frantically flies away. If you're still in the "driving" state, you're technically still in the cyclops despite your camera and player model being stuck in place. Pressing e teleports you back into the cyclops.

    Edit: I achieved flight, now I just have to cut the video and upload it (very slow internet)

    Here's footage of one launch in full (5 minutes)

    And here's footage of ocean boy becoming a space boy

    Also I eventually realized that you can launch from pretty much anywhere, being in a cyclops just makes it harder but seems to launch you much further when it succeeds.

    I have never seen someone so impatient for the rocket ship that they tried to find "alternate transportation" off world.

    Seriously, dude! Cure yourself first! Don't infect the entire galaxy because you can't wait!! :)

    Do Ghost Leviathans come after you out there? I'd have thought so, as it's the void biome. Unless it isn't and it's just a biomeless pit.
    I am currently writing a fantasy novel which I plan to be the beginning of a six-seven book series.
    To sate my thirst for people to read my stories, however, I write one on the forums in the meantime: FE . DC .

    It seems to be a "biomeles pit", I don't think the game functions entirely correctly that far outside of the playable world as shown by the way the water at night is entirely pitch black and the fact that your UI becomes a glitchy mess.

    It's pretty cool seeing the game glitch out by just going too far.

    Last year in October, I accidentally flung myself when repeatedly using the prawn's grappling hook on a biter Picture Here and Thread Here

    I discovered two things, you fall at terminal velocity inside the Prawn Suit and fall at around running speeds outside of it (I accidentally pressed the exit button). When I finally hit the water, I cheated in a Cyclops and decided to drive back to my base. Five or six hours later, I finally arrived back at my base
