Yep, that's exactly what I meant. If she needs any information about where BtRL/Diaspora has been featured tell her to not hesitate to contact us.

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
Well, crap.

Is the text of the law firm's comminuqué available anywhere?  Part of me wonders whether this was caused by a hotshot lawyer trying to make a name for himself, and acting on his own initiative rather than any orders from above.  The timing doesn't seem related to any particular event that would have triggered sudden attention from NBC, and the phrase "we were advised to pull all other BSG content" strikes me as suspiciously open-ended.

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
Actually it happened less than a week after Kotaku featured the Nexus mod (the ones who the C&D was actually aimed at).

The request appears to have come from a law firm representing NBCU rather than NBCU itself so the hotshot theory is possible.

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
In that case I will buy a vowel.  Probably should not be posting on this amount of sleep.

p.s.-- go diaspora!  You show those corporofascists how a real game is made
p.p.s.-- the secret is more dakka

 
Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
More dakka?  Usually more dakka is the best thing ever, but right now Diaspora is threatening to break FreeSpace Open with all the dakka it adds.  The only solution is for Valathil and Swifty to modify FSO to accept more dakka.

17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

You don't know how unfortunately true this is. :( The number of weapon particles seriously strains the object limits.

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
The one already bumped, or a different one?
Anyway, I'd welcome any increase in limits (since I'm a fan of more dakka too).

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
Kara, newman, I want this mod to get off the ground as much as you do, therefore I'll do whatever the hell I can to help. Please send me a PM with YOUR description/intentions with the mod, and how this is NON-PROFIT/FREE and I'll go from there. I'll have information for you as she gives it to me.

Thanks guys! Trying to get you answers ASAP

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
this borders on outrageous, if not downright ridiculous!

I'm sorry to say so (well actually, not that much), but diaspora and BTRL are amongst the best things that ever did happen to BSG fan communities, given the fact that current trends seem to overlook the potential an official BSG space sim would have (and not that isometric shooter crap).

now would be the time for some people to add two and two...

Anyhow, I think this fabulous community of which I am proud to now be a member deserves unlimited amounts of thanks (possibly veneration/adulation) for taking space sim in general (BSG included) to the always thought to be impossible to reach next level!

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
Amazingly ridiculous SMH.....
I hope the attorney handling this crap ends up fired for bad PR lmao!!
NBC really isn't doing itself any favors the last 10 years treating communities and fans like this.
I do not see Diaspora having any issues from it.
Plenty of Torrent shares to keep the stuff alive anyhow.
I got space for it too =)
Keep up the great work gents!!

Although this doesn't prevent anything, it complicates things in a certain way, and spoils a bit the party...
I do not want to sound pessimistic, but it will be very difficult to change their minds...

Re: NBC Universal: ULTRA DIQUES
The more I think about it, the more I think it's really a strange attitude to ban a mod under the pretext that it can be a concurrency if any, for its own game This means that if someone does not like my game, I prefer him to go enrich concurrency (rather than allowing free play in a similar game) ?

It's a strange approach ... Unless it is a story of intellectual property, the strict (and stupid) enforcement of a right, without discernment... which could be more easily negotiable than a matter of concurrency...

It's irritating not to know which way came the shot, or who is holding the gun !

If we get one, you'll know.

In the meanwhile I apologise if these events mean we go quieter than usual. It doesn't mean we're dead.
