Well, since it seems we have to play a business game...
What about seriously looking for other developers?
If one (albeit not highly reputed) has seen value in the brand others would...
Just let's avoid EA and Strategy First...

He actually said that our mods have no right to exist? How in the hell does this guy maintain any kind of support for his games? Minimal as it is, it does exist, though god only knows how.

And reading some of these links, it seems people are laughing at him putting atmospheric missions in... err... :nervous:

He doesn't.  Apparently, he bans people from his forum who post a technical problem without having their system specs as their signature.... he appears to have a deep loathing & contempt for any customer who doesn't bow down & worship him.

 I get the distinct impression that he only makes games for himself - i.e. he doesn't really care if people like his games, so long as he gets the money to do so.  Certainly he takes a highly unprofessional attitude towards customer support, and frequently stoops to the lowest common denominator.

I mean, i was trying to be polite & soforth on the AV thread and this one, but you saw the response that got.

He posted here a few days ago as DSmart...why would he need a new name? (other than he forgot the login information - considering he's defending himself on 12,000 game sites currently)

Really doesn't matter though...deserves whatever comes his way. Maybe he hired one of his ignorant suckers fans to fight for his honor since he has his hands full elsewhere. (Elsewhere being his forum where he has a full time job in belittling customers)

Wondering if Ray has this sign off copywritten,

Yeah but according to Styxx's earlier post the e-mail address he gave is actually one at 3000ad.com

I dunno - but he's posted on his own forum http://www.3000ad.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=37;t=000352

Well that's the big piece of evidence the guy gave.

While my mind is chugging away, if that were the case, couldn't this guy be sued for identity theft?

That'd be incredibly ironic....

Well, given Mr. Smarts ramapant egotism, I suspect he wanted everyone to see the glory of his full name.  Either that, or he didn't want to look an idiot after declaring he would never visit the forums again (under the name dsmart).

Of course, if it is him at Blues News, it also means he's given his ICQ number....... which is pretty much asking for trouble.

It just makes me sad to see people writing stuff like this, because if they put their mind to it they could make a mod and make up their own answer.

I hope that Mr. Smart would give up on the idea of developing FS3  just for the sole basis that it will save him a lot of grief in the end...


whatever happens, this will be going down in the history of gaming...in flames :(

....

Interesting read, cost me one and a half hours at least....

Seriously, wait and see for now. I'll donate to a fund to buy the rights. Someone who is of legal age in the states (makes signing docs a ****lot easier) should contact :I: for a pricequote. Then we'll see.

We cannot seriously think of beating him on a money game, it's useless...
Spend money and energy towards finding a better developer and you'll get some results..

Already posted. The reflections are... well, goonish. You know how passionate SA readers are of their favourite games.

I actually came into this thread with sole purpose of posting DEREK SMART over and over until he would appear, but that arrogant abortion of a man is apparently just googling himself instead of trying to focus how to make games and not drink gallons of pus-mixed gorilla semen. I ****ing hate that little piece of ****.

He has no idea that his games are crappy. His ego is roughly of the size of Hinderburg and as easily inflammable. He can not admit that he might make a mistake. He pays no attention to people WHO ACTUALLY ARE THE ONE TO PLAY THE GAME, good ****ing riddance.

DEREK SMART, PH.D: "You don't know how games are made and sold, therefore you can't just appreciate the game."
Gamer: "Hey dude, I can't even play your game, it crashes."
DEREK SMART DEREK SMART DEREK SMART: "You are such a little sniveling piece of ****."
Gamer: "Uh, what's your problem? I kinda wanted to play a good game, and so long all I've seen has been donkeys buggering each other when the game happens not to crash in 5 seconds. Oh, and how do I invert mouse?."
THE REAL DEREK SMART: "Go **** yourself. BANNED"

[/end rant, which was of course just me. ME. I don't even work with SCP and only thing I do round here is post some retarded MS Paints. DEREK SMART, don't use me as an example how rotten we are. :( ]
Seriously, though, this is bad news. Thank god he won't bastardize the universes, but geez. FS is about dogfights, not controlling GTD DEREK SMART Aquitane II [object error].

Yes. what surprises me are that their are so many other fansites out there that we haven't (well, at least that some of us havent) heard of.

We need to spread out more and assimiliate. ;7 :drevil:
