that's not a mini; the seats in the mini are different. It looks more similar to the audi tt, but even then, i don't think it's that.

EDIT: yeah, its the z8

i was going off of the windowscreen and the door handles, the new minis look quite similar. poster above said it was a bmw z8 which looks more like it!

My question is: why do they have an in house mocap studio? They spent millions upon millions of dollars mocapping actors for two months and god knows how many man hours loving around with the data and models to make them functional. They also hired a studio in Manchester to do this for them.

Are they going to be taking on work for other studios for more revenue? Will they offer movies mocap services? If not and it is just for SC, then loving why do you have so much mocap in a space sim and what is the point of having one in house when you hired a studio in Manchester which is probably loving cheaper than making your own from scratch?

The mind truly boggles.

Clearly they're going to syndicate an online Star Citizen show and charge people for it

I know it's not unique to them, but I love how whenever someone has some vaguely negative thing to say about SC and the community you get a few of the weirdos coming in to the twitter feed or comments sections trying to 'educate' everyone on how wrong the person making the statements are, but do it in such an overbearing and condescending way that it's completely unhelpful to their message.



all I did was point out on a status that it was lovely of RSI to charge people money to receive development information first

I've been out of the loop for about 1500 pages since I got my refund. I see that Star Citizen is no closer to be released and that in one of their recent announcements they're talking about rebuilding the backend. Again. It's like I never left!

What delicious jpegs have they been selling recently? Can't wait to see this ELE that Derek is on about. I wonder if it's linked to the Panama Papers being released? Wouldn't that be something

It should be possible to figure out in what year those pictures were taken and prove how old he was at the time.

We can get his date of birth from his website; 19th April 1981

And as for the news stills, they were taken between 2002 and 2003 according to the file names. So that would make him 22 when he was doing it.

Old enough to know better.

The sheer mental gymnastics involved in the average Star Shitizen's head for dismissing the Lesnick website is baffling. The whole spectrum ranges from "Well, Hitler was a good leader" to "This is an elaborate goon hoax"

REMEMBER HOW YEARS AGO DEREK MAYBE PUNCHED A COKE MACHINE? THAT MAKES HIM BAD

oh, Ben said terrible poo poo years ago? thats a long time, he could be a completely different person now

I was arguing my own corner with my own opinions on Facepunch and was instantly branded a Derek Smart follower / lover.

There aren't sides to pick, I just think that CIG spends money on poo poo and are incompetent. That doesn't mean I support Derek. I do like him and the stuff he comes out with, but I feel when I post my opinions I am being impartial.

It's like loving DoubleThink or some poo poo.

I got 2 reporters on the line now. Not sure how to present the info.

Just give them the links to the worst poo poo and say have fun?

Edit: And Sandi/Ben when you read this. gently caress both of you.
Edit2: And gently caress you guy trying to lock my account for $15.

I would come at it from the angle that Ben is the Community Manager for CIG, thus is directly responsible for representing the company. A company which has already had allegations of racism made about it.

Then give some overview about the lead up, that Ben posted this link on Twitter for all to see stating that he still found some of it funny. That it's a website with an extensive gallery of a news anchor and a quote database from a chat room he used to frequent when he was 25, with the majority of (if not all) quotes attributed to him.

Move on to show them some of the worst queries, such as "rape" "sex with" "hitler" "jews" "friend of the family"

Reiterate that this was a while ago now, possibly towards 2008. That Ben is however old now (DOB 19th April 1981)

However, he is a representative of the community and he has no issues with hosting offensive hate speech on his personal website. Then link to his statement where he doesn't apologise for any of it but gives some sort of excuse.


That would probably provide the most balanced view.

http://banditloaf.livejournal.com/105991.html

Can't see anything on Twitter.

TL;DR

Doesn't acknowledge the quote database, the post is about the LiveJournal and trolling. States he was "in a bad place". Doesn't apologise once for the awful content he is still hosting.
