Gents, some of the posts in this thread, are EXACTLY the reason why game developers AND publishers hardly pay attention to a game's fanbase.

This is how an executive producer with an ego (whose products fanbase probably is at least 10 times larger than Battlecruiser's) communicates with his fans.

Next time you get the chance, find out what the word really means and you will immediately see how out of place and out of context it is as is popularly used. Yes, I have an ego. Deal with it. I don't have a problem with it. So why should I care what a bunch of people think?
 


Ego means I in latin. Thank you.

Such an irrespectful behaviour with fans :mad:

As the code has been released, is it possible for someone buying the licence to "block" the open-source development? this would mean that "retroactively" you could "close the source" that you opened.
I'm poor in laws and average in english but I really wonder if this is possible.

No, FS2 source belongs to Volition, not to Interplay.

No, i don't think so.  The code, I think, is the IPR of the developers - not Interplay.  Same way as you could license the doom3 engine and it still wouldn't allow you to sell a game called 'Doom 4', etc, I think.

The only gray area could be hardcoded references to Freespace 'brand names', i.e. the Shivans & vasudans.

However, FS players are not kids stuck with theyr playstations. Scorn at the FS community will not help this new-title-wannabe to grow.

I can imagine the sum of work involved in FS:SCP, i use it, i love it, i praise it, i need my daily injection of FS2Net.
It can't be erased like chalk drawings, even by a PhD-designer-who-knows-so-well-the-game-industry-and-who-does-not-need-fans.

Just remember who buy games, and who influence the game ratings....

Last but not least :

Count the [V] made missions.
Count the fan-made missions & campains.

Who designed most ?

OK, so who's gonna make a huge DEREK SMART model which has a huge blast radius, so we can all blast him with Helioses and Kaysers?

I mean, what could be funnier in multiplay?

well, we can only hope, neh?..
but what we don't need are people flying off the handle at this, and not going nuts at derek smart, it's just feeding his overinflated ego, just smite him with calm logic, and the fact that the fans that he chastizes so much, have done far better than he'd ever be able to do.. and with just kudos and appreciation to be paid with.

in short, Derek Smart's an ass, and he should take a look over here, if he wants to see what the real men can do.

In the end, we don't need FS3.  We can even safely ignore any any of Mr. Smart's efforts.  The current Community is alive and well, and will survive should FS3 succeed or fail.

With the SCP and the Ferrium Project, we will have plenty to keep us going for a long while yet.

Let Mr. Smart take the license if he wishes.  We'll show him that what we can do here will be far superior than anything he can brew up.

If his previous record continues to be an accurate measure of his abilities, then we have nothing to fear.

I'm sure this community can continue just fine if Derek Smart released FS3. The only thing I'm worried about is that it will suck, soil the reputation of the FS series, and give us an influx of idiot noobs who keep whining about cheats, how good they are, bugs, etc. You know the steryotype.

You know, as soon as this large concentration of the word "Freespace" and the name "Derek Smart" gets picked up by Google, he'll be right over here.

Actiontrip has a news item also, check it out. The sentiments there seem to be in line with what we're seeing pretty much everywhere.

Actually, he's already been to HLP, and after a blazing reception, he declared that he would no longer post in the forums. :D
