Ever watched the tech room anim for the GTVA? Well, when it gets to displaying the Terran and Vasudan ship classes, tehre is a green box with the contractors' neams in it. One of these contractors is "Baranec Aquisitions". Dave Baranec, anyone? There are also an "Agay Compensators", and some others.

It is hard to see, and I only found it on 2x zoom in aniview.

This is already known; in fact, I had made a list of all of the corporations in the FS2 command briefings (it used to be in a thread here as well, but it got wiped out in the recent crash), and over half of them correspond to the names of Volition staff. Almost every one of the major Volition guys have a corporation named after them. :D

Just look at the contractor names in the Colossus cutscene.... i.e. Snapka Flegel (Kelly Snapka was, IIRC , an artist for FS2)

I thought we already knew that the developers used their names for the FS corperations...  Didn't realize it infiltrated the tech room though...
who needs a signature? ;)
It's not much of an excuse for a website, but my stuff can be found here
