Chapter 771: Is this really okay?
Is this really okay?
Xia Shiyu and Ning Huajian had both asked Jiang Chen the same question at least once.
However, Jiang Chen’s answer was very simple. Although there were some areas that were not professional, the overall grasp on the macro trend still persuaded the two meticulous subordinates.
“Just with our company, VR alone would have taken us a hundred years to finish and we may not even finish it. In this case, we might as well invite more companies to join in. Then we can make this cake bigger, and finally, come in with a knife and cut the cake.”
“In the MMORPG market, we still maintain an absolute monopoly. Using the quantum computer to provide online services for games, most game companies can only afford limited online capabilities. It is absolutely impossible to achieve the size of Godly Land.”
“I’m more inclined to follow the strategy of Future 1.0. Give up the small and medium-sized games and focus on maintaining an absolute monopoly in the high-end gaming market. We should maximize user stickiness, and then open up the surrounding markets, such as live streaming, and e-sports.”
“And the most critical thing is that we have the world’s only quantum computer as the server. Unless they pay big money to rent NASA’s servers at a loss, they will never be able to leave us. Their operating costs will always be controlled by us. We only need to maintain the advantage and not kick the opponents out of the race.”
After determining the next-step strategy for Future Technology in the field of VR, Ning Huajia immediately began to set up a VR game project department to complete the development of the VR game. On the other hand, technical consultants to be sent to various companies had also been selected.
All consultants sent to foreign countries must abide with stricter confidentiality agreements to ensure that they would not be headhunted away. They would return to the company after the end of the one-year training period, these technical consultants sent to foreign countries would be promoted as compensation for their overseas work.
Future Technology aside, the applications submitted by Future Group to the United Nations for the establishment of an Antarctic scientific research station had already been approved. The proposed project temporarily included three items: polar geological structure exploration, hydro-environment exploration, and flammable ice research.
The review process was actually very simple. It was submitted by Xin as the member states of the United Nations and passed in accordance with the procedures. After all, for member countries, the United Nations had very little binding force. As long as the country would not cause a substantial impact on the ecological environment of Antarctica, any country could establish a research station in Antarctica.
The premise was that you have to have the technology and budget.
At the end of April, Jiang Chen resupplied the warehouses in the apocalypse. At the same time, Lin Lin gave him good news in excitement. The Garden of Eden, which had been in construction for nearly two years now, was finally finished!
The completion of the Garden of Eden meant that food production in the apocalypse could finally be self-sufficient.
The biosphere, which was completely closed to the outside world, would become the real Garden of Eden in the apocalypse. Under the leadership of the NAC, it would draw nutrients from the wasteland, rebuild pre-war prosperity, and germinate the seed of civilization. The survivors on the mainland must also face a choice that they have to consider.
To the south or to the north?
It was foreseeable that, in the near future, a “Civil War” was bound to erupt between NAC, led by General Jiang Chen, and the Northern Alliance Area, self-determined to be the righteous ruler. Only then would the foundation be laid for the right to rule the land.
It was precisely because of this that even if the province of Suhang returned to stability, the military government did not cut its spending for the military industry. The expeditionary force occupying Yizhou would continue to expand south, integrating the survivors of the Pan-Asia Cooperation and collectively respond to the threat from the north.
Before returning to the modern world, Jiang Chen paid his dues for two days.
Although it was an amazing experience to pay his dues, for two days in a row, he felt his kidneys not being able to handle the intensive workload. Especially for the two girls with superior attributes, Sun Jiao and Xiaorou, their stamina in certain activities was more impressive…
After returning to the modern world, Jiang Chen finally had some free time and began preparations for the trip to Antarctica.
As a continent surrounded by the sea, Antarctic was 2,350 meters above sea level and was the highest continent in the world. More than 95% of the Antarctic continent was covered with ice and snow all year round. The lack of oxygen in the air and the reflection of solar radiation on the surface of ice and snow made it the coldest region in the world. The annual average temperature was usually between -50 and -60°C, with a low that could reach-88°C. It was said that working there, rubbing your nose may accidentally rip your nose off.
Exploring in such a hazardous place is extremely dangerous if one is not adequately prepared.
In addition to a polar cruiser purchased from a ship company, Jiang Chen also prepared a lot of equipment from the apocalypse for dealing with extremely cold weather such as constant temperature tents, snow melting agents, ice-breaking bombs, and dozens of Hummingbird drones that could adapt to various uses in low-temperature environments.
20 people would take on the endeavor to visit Antarctica to set up a research station. They would consist of soldiers, scientists, and adventure lovers. Taking into account the main purpose of this trip to the South Pole, the soldiers of Celestial accounted for half of those on the trip. Especially as there may be unaccountable dangers inside that fortress.
In addition to the 20 people, Jiang Chen also brought Garrett along. As for Ayesha, Jiang Chen did not ask her to come. Instead, he told her to command the Ghost Agents and keep a close eye on the movement of Rothschild.
It would be impossible to go to Antarctica unnoticed. Intuition told Jiang Chen that Rothschild, the problematic old friend, must also be keeping an eye on this codebook.
After the military operations in Kenya, the modified soldier Garrett, was incorporated into the Sea Lions Special Forces as captain. All soldiers serving in the “Sea Lions” were examined for both combat effectiveness and loyalty. These “war machines” were not only equipped with a large number of high-tech weapons but also had implanted nano-chips in the spinal nerves to achieve rapid tactical command through retinal imaging.
When Jiang Chen asked him, he looked at Jiang Chen blankly, directly expressing his confusion.
“The South Pole? Is there anything there?”
“To protect the science research team.”
Garrett’s expression turned even more bizarre.
It was the first time, he had heard such bizarre thing like sending special forces to protect the Antarctic research station. [Do penguins threaten the safety of researchers? That is ridiculous.]
Jiang Chen obviously saw the confusion. He said and smiled, “On the surface, this is a mission to protect the scientists. But in fact, I need to take you with me for a mission. It is unclear whether or not there will be danger, but we have to be cautious just in case.”
Garrett’s expression instantly changed and immediately said.
“Is there a mission briefing?”
“The content of the mission is top secret. I’ll tell you after arriving at the destination.”
Then, Jiang Chen got up and left the barracks.
