Question I got on the Windowless Building in District 7. Is it visible to the public?

Yes, it's a major landmark.

So I know this section is dead and all, but...

Can anyone explain what happened in this Virtual On crossover?

Sega has announced a A Certain Magical Virtual-On for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, a crossover between Dengeki Bunko’s A Certain Magical Index light novel series and Sega’s Cyber Troopers Virtual-On action game series stemming from a crossover light novel published in May 2016. It is a high-speed battle action game with online support due out in Japan in 2018.

We already have a thread for that. Also the novel is completely translated.

Its a good standalone Index novel; at least good enough that the success of the novel itself inadvertently caused the crossover game to be green-lit to the surprise of both Kamachi and Watari (V-O producer).

Not exactly Index question exactly, but I don't think there is any better place to ask. I noticed Kamachi has habit of putting sort of cross references in his novels. In Beatrice there were IntelVille and I believe in Index there was HO tv show and probably several others. Could you help me get it together somehow?

In the Index novels you have the HO movie that's referenced twice (Touma talking about a recent remake is likely referencing the anime series), the Zashiki Warashi show Misaki watches in NT11 and I think there has been novel covers for HO and Blood Sign in the background of some color illustrations.

All the HO mangas have cameos of other Kamachi characters as part of the 37th Battalion. It started with Index characters (particularly Uiharu, Tsuchimikado and Misaka Imouto making repeated appearances) but Shinobu and Yukari from Zashiki Warashi and Kyousuke + White Queen from Blood Sign have also made cameos in the newest manga.

Zashiki Warashi has a HO LN cover as the cover of a PSP Dragon Hunter-like game about humans fighting giant rampaging machines. Mai Hishigami's outfit in vol 3 might be a reference to Index's Oriana Thomson's first outfit in the Daihaseisai arc.

Boo Boo has the reference to Zashiki Warashi with a police drama with Hayabusa and Enbi. Preview of vol 5 might have a reference to his Vampire/Zombie webnovel, but then again Maxwell is a cliche name for AIs/supercomputers. It also has a succubus with the exact same name as a demon in Zashiki Warashi, which Kamachi claims it's a coincidence.

Vampire/Zombie webnovel has a bunny girl announcer working for the evil bad guys named Karen, just like in A Simple Series. It also references Boo Boo via Ayumi's camisole, though you can only see this in the character designs due to lack of illustrations and no description of the design in the text, so that might be just Mahaya.
