Eh, I gotta say, after bothering to look at the pictures, that that sort of front fork design is hardly original to either modeler. More likely they both just copied the same sort of general sci-fi-ish forklift looking design.

But EVE doesn't seem to want to make an actual legal case out of it anyway, and good for them on that. They were just ribbing.

Yeah, I know I’ve seen that ship design in multiple Sci-if things before either Eve or Star Citizen.

So many sci-fi ships are just remolded or dumbed down Chip Foss drawings that it is kinda pointless to argue about any of it.

I think you mean Chris Foss -- or is he known as "Chip" in some circles?

But honestly even his stuff can be rather derivative -- his WWII influence can be rather pronounced.

In any case, there has been a *lot* of spacecraft art over the decades, very little of it more than variations of some already existent theme.

I would say that the primary Star Trek ships had distinctively original art designs, to note an exception.

Has this game actually shown anything recently? I haven't followed this game at all in years except this thread.

By recently I mean over the last year or so.

2012: Chris Roberts wants to get out of making bad movies and get into making bad cutscenes with [insert dramatic gesticulations here] mocap. Part of this involves asking the internet if it wants him to make a game to put the mocap in. The internet has recently discovered being asked for money in exchange for being assured the money will be spent, and everyone is really excited for how this will go really great always. "Make the game, Chris." says the internet.

2013: To help finance his baroque masterpiece of thrillingly direct, definitely creative character setpieces like cocksure_grizzled_veteran_03 and ambitious_tomboy_mechanic_07, Chris throws together a charming innocent little package to get an extra lil' ship at launch for just a few more bucks, oh it's just a wee little ship at such a pittance, oh we were but sweet summer children, but innocent little naive babes

2014: Chris is pretty excited at getting two million dollars. However he does not know that he is Lelouch Lamperouge and his Geass has just activated. He jokingly says to his fans, "well now I have to deliver an okay game. It's not like I can just look at you and say 'always buy spaceship jpegs for thousands of dollars until you are broke and rightfully divorced' ha ha"

2015: Chris was not actually Lelouch Lamperouge, the internet is just a miasma of terrible manchildren with disposable income. Everyone is buying jpegs. No one will not buy jpegs. Chris wisely invests this in the industrial-strength production of monthly jpeg package deals. The same fucking idiots who think things like "surely all this Trump shit can't just keep happening as insanely as this, surely something will break" spend years thinking this definitely can't keep happening until Star Citizen has 250 million dollars.
 
2016: You awake in a hospital bed and are told by a nurse that it's 2016 and you've been in a coma for four years. "Oh boy I can't wait to 𝗉𝗅𝖺𝗒 𝗌𝗈𝗆𝖾 𝗈𝖿 𝗋𝖾𝗅𝖾𝖺𝗌𝖾𝖽 𝗀𝖺𝗆𝖾 𝗌𝗍𝖺𝗋 𝖼𝗂𝗍𝗂𝗓𝖾𝗇" says your meme text.

2017: The Allchris hungers. Each new jpeg is now a pyramid scheme in and of itself, sold at exorbitant rates with promises of magnificent, world-spanning new mechanics that is each, individually, a full feature game release nested inside the larger Star Citizen. Each jpeg is actually paying off the initial work on the previous month's promised new mechanics.
 
2018: Star Citizen's scope creep is now so concentrated that it covers the earth in tangible form. Several zerg buildings have been placed on it, and the head of a Nydus canal bursts through earth's crust to deposit the glistening, naked form of Serek Dmart upon the ground. Immediately upon being birthed the Smart has complaints that a scam never-released-game is still better and more important than any of his own properties.

2019: Star Citizen is now the sole employer of all humankind. Jpeg packages are costly, but each one comes with a certain duration of guaranteed nutrient paste.

2020: Star Citizen

2021: Earth is now a tomb world with a cheeky Anomaly for your stellaris spacefaring empire to research, relating to how the civilization spontaneously super duper ended, crushed to death under pictures of spaceships endlessly generated by towering autofactories.

Quote on the matter by Chris Roberts(2013):

4) NO Pay2Win - You should never be able to buy anything with real money that you can't buy in with in game credits. Once fully live SC in-game items will only be purchasable with in-game credits. There will even be some items you can ONLY earn by playing / flying missions. All you will be able to spend money on that is gameplay related would be buying some in-game credits as you don't want or don't have enough time to earn the credits you need for your contemplated purchase. We'll cap purchase of in-game credits to avoid someone unbalancing the game / economy.





This was a big sticking point among confirmed backers. Multiple threats revolved around that selling ships was ok because they were at or below cost. Star Citizen wasn't truly pay to win with the ability to buy in game currency being capped.

https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/93c6z2/psa_there_is_no_longer_a_cap_for_maximum_amount/


I strongly suspect this cap was removed because the sale of ships has slowed down too much and they need to focus on their whales even more.


It looks like highly likely Star Citizen won't run out of money by the end of 2019 as I estimated. Too bad we won't know what their daily income will be but how much longer do they intend to keep on going? If this isn't gold by 2021 I wonder how angry the poorer backers will get.

Not really sure why this is an issue.  I mean, players starting with the Death Star is cool, but starting with the Death Star and a thousand spacebucks in their pocket is going to unbalance things?  Come on.  The economy for this game was irreversibly fucked ages ago.  What do they think spacemoney is going to be used to buy, aside from space ships that you can already buy for real money with no restrictions?

Just for the fun of it I went back to the start of the thread.  We are closing on on the 6 year anniversary of the beginning. 

Holy hell, I can't believe this has gone on this long with no real game produced and the suckers still paying in.  Incredible.
