Star Citizen and EVE Online players unite to call out lookalike concept ship



When you have cake, it is not the cake that creates the most magnificent of experiences, but it is the emotions attached to it.
The cake is a lie.

    The first commentator in that MassivelyOp article is - as can be expected - the ever faithful Smarty ! Surpriiiiise. And he calls it "crap". Surpriiiiise.

    But the second poster (called: jay) already sums up everything that can be said about that article:

    "It’s not like a ship with two arms sticking out of the front of it as a mining /salvage ship was CCP’s original ideal. The idea for that type of ship design has been around in Sci-Fi for longer than either one of these MMO’s existed, if you are really into sci-fi literature & film.

    And other than the arms, the ships are different enough skin wise as to not even be similar. TO be fair, I’m not a Star Citizen fan boy or anything, I’m just a realist."


    Numerous other posters have pointed out that anything handling standard freight containers usually ends up looking like either a forklift or a landtrain truck.


    Have fun

    Pretty sure CCP is going to love all the free press this will generate and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all.

    CIG's version is far too close the Venture used in EVE regardless of where CCP might have got their inspiration from.

    Hardly new for CIG though, they're well known for being lazy, unoriginal and uninspiring with their work.

    On an unrelated note, DSmart posted over there and made a reference like "we Goons."

    I know he's been associated with Goons since SC got rolling, but was he one prior to then?

    I don't think I have seen a reference to him with regards to Goonswarm in EVE which is where I still view the "true" Goons as residing. 

    Seems like he's a more recent joiner of opportunity but perhaps I just missed it.

    This is dumb.  I have more free time than I know what to do with but I've somehow wasted it here.

    I believe he has been a member of the forum for quite a long time and certainly pre-SC iirc,  although technically he is not a goon anymore. He got kicked out after doxxing yet another person after being repeatedly warned it was against the rules.

    If CCP is litigious, they might get more than free press. IF that really is what CIG's new ship looks like, that is awfully close to appropriating someone else's IP. It would be a stretch in my eyes, that that doesn't seem to stop half these game companies from going after one another.

    The SC version looks damn near like a reskin of the EVE ship...

    "oh you took it from EvE" and then they go "EvE took it from Wing Commander", internet cat fights ftw.

    It has a very close silhouette, just did watch the last ATV that reveals the full concept shows to be heavily using the design of the dragonfly to do this one.

    serious I don't even condone what is star citizen, but serious, picking on how ships design looks the same is kinda stupid, all ship looks a like ever since the first games and series on space

    I dont think that guy is a concept artist, maybe you meant Ryan Church? 

    Anyway in the end it's always Chris Roberts who decides what's the ship final design is so if ya'll want to get mad over it blame Chris, again lol :D  
  • ScotScot Member LegendaryPosts: 19,035
    Lots of JCB's, cranes and so on look similar. It comes from the design conforming to utility of function. SC has a question mark over it in my eyes, as does every indie MMO, but this is just nonsense.

    And just like the other fucking fake drama bullshit this is a non story by the master hypocrite himself that should not be throwing stones at all.

    Has CCP sued CIG because of it ? 

    No ?

    Then why should we care ?


    Have fun

    I meant cause Ryan Archer is a terrible “artist” who copies other people’s work and makes small changes then tries to pass it off as his own

    As far as I know, in Eve , the player has no ship interiors, so to claim that any ship in Eve is like any ship in S.C. is tillyfolly .
    That concept drawing doesn't have interiors.

    If we follow your logic, the concept is like EVE's ship, but it's tillifolly to to claim that the final Star Citizen ship would be like the concept image used to sell it.

    In my honest opinion your logic is tillifolly.

    No, if the exterior looked similar enough that is "copying" to be polite. But that did not happen here so its a moot point.

    One thing though, I have by new word for the day "tillyfolly", lets say it means beyond folly. :)

    That is a very thin argument.  This is a video game, not an engineering project.

    Not only that, but they're designing spaceships that utilize technology that doesn't exist at all in real life.  As such, they are not really limited by the confines of "utility of function."

    Eve is successful...i'm sure they will copy it just like many MMOs copied WoW....

    Pretty obvious ripoff. Plain amd simple. Hasn't been the first time so not suprised

    It likely wouldn't stink quite so much if SC hadn't decided to give it a name that is literally 2 letters different from EVE's "Venture."
