Re: Still play any space related games?
Although I have to admit that he did improve a little after his new game Galatic Command Echo Squad came out two weeks ago. You can tel that he is trying to copy from FS SCP here http://www.3000ad.com/pics/gcES/07-12-17/PHOTO009.PNG. But ultimatly, he is not very successful in it
I lol @ Derek trying to copy things from SCP.

There is a problem with that "copy cat" theory.

Those are thrusters, not beam cannons.
But that is mostly Derek Smart Ph.D.'s fault if he can't even copy the right things to the right places.

Not trying to defend that particular hack, or anything like that. But Freespace didn't invent the idea of the beam cannon.

Re: Still play any space related games?
Of course it didn't. Evil beamzors have been around for quite some time. But there are certain cases where it does seem that dsmart's been ripping off stuff from FreeSpace, or the MediaVPs in particular. Those thrusters look a lot like the funky green beams of FreeSpace, and if you've watched that epilepsy-causing promotional video of Echo Squad, you have certainly noticed that the explosions in it look awfully familiar as well.

Well, technically, he can steal the mediavps stuff and get away with it.

Re: Still play any space related games?
No, he can't, the stuff is the property of the people who created it, and cannot be used without permission. What is given is a kind of 'community license', which means that you can use them in the context they are provided at no cost, but you don't have the right to do whatever you choose with them, and you certainly cannot include them in a game in which you yourself profit.

Now, personally, I think Derek has imitated, not plagiarised, and that's almost flattering, and without doing a comparison at a binary level of the effects used, I think it's really not a good idea to start suggesting he took stuff out of the VP's without a bit more evidence, that can lead to trouble.

Re: Still play any space related games?
Those thrusters existed before the SCP.

And I'd also wager they existed before FS too.

Re: Still play any space related games?
But if FS was the one who used them he still can't rip them off of it because he is selling his games no? And wouldn't that be sort of like pirating? Because even if the game developers release the source code for fans to use you cannot sell anything in the game or anything in the upgrades that the fans make.

Re: Still play any space related games?
Started Mass Effect a few days ago. I've still Freespace 2, X-Tension, X-Wing/TIE-Fighter (Win95 Version), I-War (with Defiance), I-War 2, Tarr Chronicles, ST: Starfleet- and Klingon Academy and Wing Commander 1-5 installed.

But at the Moment i play only Mass Effect and Starfleet Academy. Sometimes i play FS2, too, of course.

Re: Still play any space related games?
Not counting FS2, I play lots of Homeworld 2. Trying to buff the Hiigarans like mad so they become overpowered. I already gave the mothership 4 ion cannons, 20 rapid fire point defense guns, and 6 torpedos. The poor Vagyr carrier never knew what hit it. :drevil:

Re: Still play any space related games?
All the usuals, not so much at the moment though. Im actively playing Stalker (and still trying to slog through a full Juli campaign in Rome TW) but Freespace and I-War (unplayed as yet, seems pretty buggy due to compatibility) are installed.

@ ngtmr1

I do like StarWars Rebellion/Supremacy. It's got alot of shortcomings  but for some reason I kept playing it for a good while. Pity about the crudeness of fleet battles.
Watch out for the Guns! They'll getcha!

Umm... yeah, same here. All of my dsmart-related posts in this thread are meant as comical interludes and should not be concidered as personal and insulting assaults against any HLP members.
