That is loving hilarious.

Seriously that's such a confirmation, nothing like that should happen in game development at that stage. Changing the (finished?) high poly model with drastic changes, and ones that would be simple to add if done from the start, is such a bad sign of development. It shows they don't stick to the approved concept, they don't care about artists/company time being wasted on needless revisions, and a basic lack of understanding how art is created for a game.

It's also just a plain stupid creative decision; why would there be a little tiny window cut out on a claymore mine? So you can see the explosives and metal balls inside? Why would that even be a thing?

If this is straight from Croberts than loving

Makes perfect sense if you consider they are selling jpgs instead of making a game

Is typing up threats of a lawsuit smack bang in the middle of the weekend standard legal practice? Were they hoping the Escapist's legal advisor(s) would be off work, and whoever they left in charge would just panic and pull the story?

I think they had to rush something out to calm the brown sea and keep them buying $900 ships. That's why the letter is full of super slams and vitriol rather than some dry boring legal document.

Could someone explain in non-programmer language what it is about Cryengine that makes it bad for a game of this type? Compared to the Unreal engine, or... Uh, I don't know any other game engines of this type.

They're having huge problems making an FPS with an engine specifically created for FPSs. So I wouldn't take CIG's issues as evidence of an engine being poo poo

So, uh, whatever happened to all the goons who used to post about all the pretty pictures they paid $200 for in this thread?

They're in a secret forum with all the people who donated to Doobie's Dog House or developed Zybourne Clock

Also Erectile:Disfunction is kind of crappy. Maybe after a couple of expansions it'll be worth playing but at the moment it's quite boring and grindy. Tons of procedural content but very little of it is worth looking at twice.

They got scooped by The Escapist, they're probably sulking about it and/or don't want to send clicks their way.

They're probably a bit embarrassed about sucking off an obvious swindle for several years. They should be anyway.

Kismensus found out that one of the goons was a big ol' unrepentant pedophile. He kicked said Pedophile, and the rest of the Archeage leadership got really upset because BFM was really good at making wool or something.

A lot of the leadership for that game bailed with the guild assets because they were good friends with the known practicing pedophile and took poo poo with them. Some goons somehow think it's Kismensus' fault that goons didn't get very far in archeage (It's in fact because it's a bad game).

People got really mad that the fat Eve FC guy didn't respect their fishing pacts and pirated the poo poo out of people too. Even though pirating the poo poo out of people was the only thing resembling fun in that lovely game.

So I just read the most expensive jpg is $2500 but they only ever sold a limited quantity.

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/...Class-Destroyer

However if you just must own that picture you can buy the $15000 "Completionist" package. Of course that doesn't actually contain the jpg, but you do get a token that gives you the right to buy it

I'm beginning to understand why CIG gently caress their whales in the rear end so hard. They basically beg for it.

Does this thing have a chance of going class-action? I only bought in for the cheapest ship package so only have $30-$40 in it and I wouldn't mind getting my money back but it's a small enough amount that I have no problem leaving it in if I can get more from a lawsuit.

Can't get blood from a stone. If it goes that far you'll be fighting over used coffee grounds for your refund.

Just a reminder that the showstopping bug that they is hanging up the FPS module is literally that they can't control where the player aims, and they don't know why.

I bet that's a consequence of Chrobert insisting 1st and 3rd person animations are the same. Like his idea that the ships need to have functional thrusters made the flying rear end and some ships needed to be redesigned. Self inflicted problems.
