I have recovered my account and deactivated it again. You could still check out Rayban things though.

I haven't used Facebook in 6 or 7 years, you're welcome to go check out some Rayban launch events if you'd like to, though.

They will not come back, everything is orbiting the galactic center at a slightly different speed so things get close for a while then go away for much much longer. In about 1,360,000 years, Gliese 710 will pass 0.5-1 light years away, well inside that grey area on the bottom. It is 60% of solar mass and though it has no planets, any asteroids or comets orbiting it as well as anything in the Oort cloud it disrupts will cause a minor increase in cratering, 5-10% more impacts than normal for the next few tens of thousands of years.

Distance from the sun to other stars.

That's a change in happiness on a 0-10 scale after these events.

Daisy but instead of it being "This man is crazy and wants to start a war" it is "This man is crazy, I want to start a war!"

Yeah, he sounds kind of harmless. He's a public figure, right? Who is letting friends of friends see that post? At that point it's public right?

Derek Zmartlander
Public figure in that he's an old video game designer that used to be a much bigger name back when space sims were a bigger genre. He made a bunch of games that tried to do what Star Citizen is trying to do, though failed and for hardware reasons needed to use graphics that were 5 years out of date for their time.

As for harmless, yeah he pretty much is but he does throw random ass lawsuits around and has an Encyclopedia Dramatica entry over his years long flamewars with people who didn't like his games.

Star Citizen is trying to refund his $250 backing on Kickstarter and he's trying to decline it now.





I think that he's saying this article is now his second article.

He's so fucking narcissistic and like anyone could point out that Star Citizen is a total mess and failure but it's hilarious to me that it's this guy who has kept trying to make a game that does what Star Citizen is trying to do and keeps failing and releasing badly broken messes.

Someone from Somethingawful (username 3) made this after showed up in their Star Citizen thread, threatened to sue people for posting those facebook screenshots, then posted a whole bunch of shit for a day.

Yeah, his games are always buggy as all hell, and he's been making the same game forever. Battle Cruiser, Battle Cruiser 3000AD, Universal Combat, Universal Combat CE. They are all the same game, just updated for a new generation of hardware. Believe it or not, his first Battle Cruiser game was not self-published, it was released 1 year before he believed it would be ready and since then he's self-published and actually waited longer to do bugfixing and balancing. His self-published stuff is somehow significantly more playable than the first game where he had a publisher.

Here's part 1 of his 2 part Star Citizen takedown:
http://www.donotlink.com/fwly

and part 2 he says he will be publishing tomorrow and says that he makes enough claims in the article that he decided to run it through his company's legal department to make sure he's not going to be on the hook for a libel suit.

Further disclaimer is that he's working on a game right now which is expected in 6 months and is a scaled-down version of his one game that he's always made, attempting to make it more playable by cutting it down to 5 worlds. He definitely would be competing for some of the same playerbase as Star Citizen, if Star Citizen ever really had a realistic chance of being released.

Overall though, definitely belongs in this thread, if for no other reason that I honestly think there's a very good chance of him showing up in this thread if you actually type out his name instead of my one weird trick of a picture of text of his name.

(image of his name because he searches for his own name sometimes) has been trying to make games that do what Star Citizen has been trying to do for decades. His opinion is that the game is unmakeable with the current technology but would love to see it made while he's still young enough to spend a lot of time with it. He's recently written some blog posts about it and been contacted by a bunch of people about it and wrote this big old thing:
