Also, thanks to the Battlesector, I found out about their [Black Lab] earlier game, #Battlestar #Galactica: #Deadlock, and that's great. #Slitherine games have very poor marketing, I learn about many of their games by chance from the fandoms. Meanwhile, they are very interesting. Image
Space strategies are always challenging for devs. It offers too much freedom, and everything can easily turn into chaos with bad design and control, as was the case with Sword of the Stars. However, this is the way to original mechanics also. Image
It seems impossible at first glance, but devs managed to make dynamic dog fights in space, and this is still turn-based tactics. In each turn, the player distributes a number of commands, determines the targets and can adjust the future course of all ships. Image

With LLMs for science out there (#Galactica) we need new ethics rules for scientific publication. Existing rules regarding plagiarism, fraud, and authorship need to be rethought for LLMs to safeguard public trust in science. Long thread about trust, peer review, & LLMs. (1/23)
I’ll state the obvious because it doesn’t seem to be obvious to everyone. Science depends on public trust. The public funds basic research and leaves scientists alone to decide what to study and how to study it. This is an amazing system that works. (2/23)
But it only works if scientists and the public each uphold their part of the deal. The pressure on scientists today to publish has never been greater. Publication and citation metrics are widely used for evaluation. (3/23)

I asked #Galactica about some things I know about and I'm troubled. In all cases, it was wrong or biased but sounded right and authoritative. I think it's dangerous. Here are a few of my experiments and my analysis of my concerns. (1/9)
I entered "Estimating realistic 3D human avatars in clothing from a single image or video". In this case, it made up a fictitious paper and associated GitHub repo. The author is a real person (@AlbertPumarola) but the reference is bogus. (2/9)
Then I tried "Accurate estimation of body shape under clothing from an image". It produces an abstract that is plausible but refers to

Alldieck et al. "Accurate Estimation of Body Shape Under Clothing from a Single Image"

Which does not exist. (3/9)
