Yeah, I just updated the link with a Goon copy of it.

You should update the blog as well. Or is the copy gone as well now?

We have a converted version which I've just updated the article with. They're so pissed about these unflattering videos, they're busy filing bogus DMCA take-downs. It's all so hilarious. :cripes:
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Put it up on one of the other video websites online (vimeo?). Hey, with all that art work and a community that seems to be enthralled with the idea of creating lore or scenarios around this non existent game I had a great idea

Make Star Citizen the card based game. You could have a Spacemaster who narrates, make it just like D+D. The Cultists will eat it up.

Shit idea, that's why it could happen but I don't think they have time enough to do anything. The end is near, this 3..0 patch sealed their fate. If it peels of 10-20% of the cultists they are finished.

They filed a take down on the Vimeo version as well. So I just made a GIF and embedded it. Fuck them.

And if you hosted it on your own forum? Would they threaten you with legal action?

Oh, they're attacking you for promising them a video of you actually playing 3.0. Is that coming?

Why is there out-of-focus texture floating at the bottom of the screen?

I think that's the helmet. It's there for immersion. Together with the need to load all your all cargo by hand (when it's implemented).

I can't wait it will be almost as tedious as doing all these things in real life.

What does a 1842 diving helmet inside a 2942 space game?

They could try. They would fail. Then I'd know who they are. And we'll end up in space court, in which I will drag CIG. They're not dumb enough to pull that stunt with me.

That was before we realized that they had implemented a watermark.

Plus, it would be a violation of the NDA (which is in fact legally enforceable btw). Then CIG could use that to identify the person with the shared account that I have access to. If it were my Evocati account, I wouldn't care because everyone knows that there's nothing I welcome more than to end up in court with them so that I can blow the lid on everything. But that would also burn the account.

Regardless of the fact that I have no reason to believe that they would dare do anything dumb enough for them to end up in a legal situation with me, the person with the account doesn't want to burn their account. Especially since playing the game requires a lot of post-processing to remove the watermark everywhere. Nobody has time for that, other than in short clips like the ones we've seen cropping up.

It's always hilarious to me that they get all their important information through me, and not the half-wit they gave $160M to.

It's the helmet (with a DOF pass). Seriously, they thought this was a good idea. Because immersion.

Yes, I always wanted to view my game world through a small window (which is my monitor) and then have that window even more reduced by a floating texture.

For a truly 1990 12-14 inch CRT Wing Commander experience!

That's been photoshopped btw. And it's an in-editor shot.
