Did you know?

The Connie model rotated around several model maker companies, because CR wasn't satisfied with their construction/durability/texture. I remember the first prototype came back with a broken nacelle in the box.

Far as I can figure, the "profit" on the models didn't exceed 3 figures. EU regulations further taxed the models (because the model molds were made in one place, and assembled in a second place, I forget the EU law but there was a tariff on stuff originating outside the EU).

The gigantic mousepads had a "better profit margin". But those didn't make much either.

There was an idea to make those brown leather bomber jackets with SC patches and what not, but those were stupidly expensive to make and ship.

So fake internet spaceships became the go-to item to sell.

2 of these things MIGHT be lies.

I remember the bomber jacket thing. Was still being asked about last I looked on the forums a few months back. Sub/Conc threads are full of a special kind of idiot.

It makes sense to me that CIG are crawling back to publishers to try and get some more funds - and that that is part of the reason they are going ballistic right now. I can imagine, however, that most of those meetings with publishers went something like this:

CIG: we would like more money please
publisher: ok, show us what you have so far
CIG: *ladder animation* *space bio-dome concept art* *a brief FPS demo that crashes immediately*

You can demonstrate advance knowledge without revealing it ahead of time by using encryption:
Make a prediction, encrypt it and publish the encrypted prediction. Then when the prediction comes to pass, publish the decryption key so that everyone can decrypt the original statement and see that it was indeed correct.

If Derek even hints at knowing the name of the upcoming ship, they will most likely scramble to rename it just to head off any possible chance of him being right. Your suggestion wouldn't really fly in their paranoia and eagerness to prove him wrong .

I took it very hard when they fired James,

Honestly this poo poo is what killed it for me. James was an amazing guy, who I talked to on more than one occasion. Did not deserve what he got, nor how he got it. (Mike, Eric, and Rob, were just as bad, but a touch easier to deal with.)

I do feel bad for Lando, because he went from a funny guy who landed his dream job, to a shill who has to try and save face with the community for a company that is as toxic as it gets. He probably knows he had to watch every syllable he utters or Sandi might explode on him next. Deserves better than that poo poo, and never deserved to get caught up in that maelstrom of venom in the first place.

Ben. gently caress Ben. He deserves no sympathy. He has lied and shilled for that company for a long time. Dream or not, he dragged a lot of people into it, and even now is feverishly holding onto the delusion that everything is okay. He won't let go of that until the day the doors close, and that might actually break him.

As for ? Ben Lesnick is an awful human being. Here's just one example why: Ben went out of his way to protect and coddle dozens of homophobes, misogynists, and racists posting to CIG's forums because they were real gamers. When some of us made a big scandal out of it, his response was to grudgingly disallow bigotry on the forums, and then yell at goons for being assholes and ruining everything. He saw nothing wrong with this.

Don't pity him, because Ben Lesnick is not the little fat kid who gets picked on in school. Ben Lesnick is the little fat kid who makes "friends" with the bullies by helping them victimize the other little fat kids. He's a follower and a sycophant and on some level, he knows it, and ever day he tries to smother that grim knowledge with high-fructose corn syrup.
