Goddammit...

Has anyone talked with someone from Interplay about getting the rights? Keep in mind that with the rights we could sell Freespace merchandise...maybe not the SCP EXEs, but the mediaVPs and mods, things that would have a very wide interest group.

And with Ferrium, it's entirely conceivable that we could release a full Freespace 3.

Or we could see if Volition would like to make another FS game.

I'm sorry if I'm being closed-minded, but I just dislike the idea of someone completely outside the community making a FS3, especially with paragraphs like this:

Quote

Most of the work would be in the graphics engine, campaign backstory (I have the perfect person in mind for that!!), campaign scripting. The biggest job would be having to re-create all the Freespace ship assets from scratch and bring them up to par with the likes of modern day ship designs.

And don't worry about the graphics engine guys, the Freespace world is nowhere near as large as mine, so eyecandy (the Freespace legacy) would be my #2 priority. Besides, when you see my new graphics engine in action, faith will be most certainly be restored in this area.


Clearly this guy has never heard of the SCP. I haven't heard of him, either...and I very vaguely remember hearing something or seeing something about Battlecruiser Millenium, but don't remember being interested at all.

Actually, he says hes still trying to get it

"Topic: Freepace License. What if...
....Derek Smart, yeah, that would be me, got the license from my friends at Interplay (a publisher I had very good experiences with); would you buy Freespace 3 if I made it?"

I never played any of his games, so honestly, I have no idea of what could happen. I think that Volition will be the first to make a grab for the liscence, though, if Interplay ever put it up for sale - they even said as much - so it's more or less a moot point anyway.
Probably away. Contact through email.

It's not a question of Volition or not as it is of "Does Derek have the skills to reproduce the qualities of the Freespace games?" If the atmosphere, gameplay and other aspects of the series are not retained, it'll feel more like a Freespace TC in a totally different game.

Basically, Derek Smart for those who don't know is the biggest ego known to man, somehow compressed into one mans head. He's a complete asshole when it comes to criticism of other peoples work but can't accept the NUMEROUS flaws in all of his releases, believing himself to be the victim of critics who want to see him fail.

Twat completely and utterly.

Well, he's saying that he may want to refer to us for information on the Freespace universe, which is fine. I just get irritated at comments that make it sound like our efforts mean nothing :(

It does indeed look like Interplay is selling-off its IPs at bargain basement prices, so...anyone have a rich uncle who always forgets your name but feels guilty for neglecting you all those years? Might come in usefull right about now.

edit: Damnit, if Volition wasn't stuck with TH "Britney's Dance Studio" Q, this could a lot more interesting.

Has anyone actually talked with Interplay aout the rights?

I'd certainly contribute $ to a community pool if it meant receiving the FS rights.

Yeah, I've noticed his lack of tact...

Here's a quote on some ideas on gameplay he has:

Quote
And if you guys think I'm thinking some pantsy ass console shooter, think again. I'm thinking build an ENTIRE ship in 3D from the inside and out. Then merge it all with a great action focused (with mouse flight controls!!!) campaign that would be true to the franchise. Maybe a few planetary missions (well, I have the tech, why the hell not?) missions to move the campaign story along.

I say it's going to be another one of his overambitous titles full of bugs that never actually gets finished.

Couldn't someone E-mail someone at [V] or something?

Oh...****..  I think we should inform Mr. Smart we would not touch it with a 10 foot clown pole.  

I've seen enough of how poor is attitude is towards customer support.  Even if i had faith in his ability to make an accessible, fun game, that would put me off.

01010, you're Utnayan, aren't you?...good man.

I also love he keeps talking about how "he" will make the game, about how "he" won't screw it up and how "he" does this and that. Yeah, those programmers, artists and designers, who work their asses off, they're just a periphery, right?.

Utnayan? If that's someone on a forum somewhere criticising Mr Smart then it just shows you how many people think the same way as me. He's all ego and very little show, if he can do it then all respect will be given but he has a lot to prove.

The guy reminds me of Kazan, except I think Kazan would have a good chance of pulling something like this off.
