I think this is a reasonable suggestion at that.

Pfff, let me put a Gas Mask on my face. I can't smell fresh air when I see you.

And about the topic, they are making their own arts, new design, new sounds etc.  What is same from Tremulous, it's just: names of structures and aliens, and same powers (they will also add new ones)


You're just a hater which trying to complain about someones work. If you don't like it, please make your own project, and start a competition versus Murnatan (like EDGE started vs RCZ). I'm wating to see this.

1. Lol, Lava being the usual Lava :D
2. Edge didn't start to kill Rcz. Rcz would have been fine if it had NEW stuff like Edge. It didn't - Edge did. That doesn't ofc mean that Yalt didn't got an ego trip out of Edge.
3. You take what you like from Trem and add new stuff to it. Don't use the name Tremulous, trademarked - fine. Don't use the concepts? What's next - don't make a game with "alien team vs human team" in it? To put it in perspective - Trem has blaster, well Quake 2 had blaster too - don't use it. You get the idea.

http://www.murnatan.com/ is using Tremulous art assets that the creators of Murnatan are not allowed to use. The one holding the actual rights to these assets is ignored on Twitter, so I decided to post here, catch all the shit thrown at me by a bunch of children and hopefully find a meaningful reply from Rotacak inbetween.

We are already well aware of this.

1. - The project has not yet reached commercial state, has not been marketed to an audience, has not earned a dollar, and thus has not violated the original CC-BY-SA.

2. - The only potentially conflicting content currently in this game is on the cover page of the website.

3. - I can guarantee you that Rotacak is already smart enough to know that the art assets on the cover page need to be changed before release, and is probably already planning to do so, but has been more concerned about finishing the damn game first, along with the assets to create new cover art in the process.

4. - Plush Grangers are being sold at-cost with little to no profit, because Rotacak needs a way to get them loving homes other than their originally intended use as Kickstarter rewards.  Rotacak needs office space to work in, and that's problematic with 50 adorable plushies sitting on his desk.

If you still have a problem, then file a motion in court.  You will loose, and succeed in nothing other than wasting your own money and possibly forcing Rota to change the art a few months earlier.

It went from "we aren't using any of the assets" to "we still need to fix the asset problem". It has been several months since the last time this was subject of discussion.

Why is this so hard to fix? I ask this so that people who are not you or your friends can understand your situation a little better and then formulate a proper response.

[EDIT] I know very well that I am talking to someone who is not a part of the development team as listed on the Murnatan website. I acknowledge this makes this whole discussion about as useful as talking to a brick, but any information as to why this problem is so hard to solve is a plus.

Since you seem to have edited your post several times and added quite a few words to it, yet failed to answer a simple question, I'll just ask the same question again for the sake of clarity, only a bit more elaborate:

How come the situation concerning the Murnatan website has not changed since the last time this was subject of discussion? It's been quite a few months now and you can't honestly say it's a lot of work to accomplish. Ignoring the obvious lack of willingness to right your wrongs, what really is the problem?

Lava gets a kick out of this attention on him :D

Surely, Murnatan will be modeled after the original Trem and that is good :D. Let certain ppl be envy of "what could have been but isn't". Let them fume and send boiling lava (:D) on the Murnatan devs. The most they can get out of this is a variation of "see - the granger can't look like the Trem granger - it's the law that says it". Big F deal.

Go read mainpage - its' being developed and it's going to get released - and that is the main reason of silliness in the way of "hey dude this is my ex gf you're shagging". Nothing you can do about it now.

Getting the vibe already?

Well, the smart thing from the complainer's point of interest would be to wait until the release, then sue the devs for money when they get fat, right? :D

The fact is that is that the game doesn't matter at all at this point. What matters is the use of Tremulous assets on the website and the sale of products that clearly infringe on Tremulous' trademark. 
 
So once again: What's so hard about changing a few images and links on a website? Put some images of the new artwork there instead of Tremulous artwork. It can't possibly be harder than finishing the 'damn game'.

The goal is not to get money from Rotacak and/or his friends in any way. The goal is to make Rotacak and/or his friends stop using Tremulous art assets. Nothing more, nothing less. Claiming otherwise is nothing more than spreading misinformation with the goal of creating strife and drama, while the actual goal should be to fix your mistakes.

"just give it up and be original"

Personally - I don't care if they sell the granger or not. Why do you care? What's in it for you?

Going with this - why are YOU posting here, not Timbo or Trem devs? Good quote for good question.

Lolnab.
This is a variation of "I don't want to offend you - but you're an a-hole". Say one thing - do the opposite, appear guilt free, so the other side is seen as an offender. Again. Lolnab.

Might I also add - the fuss is about a plushy teddy bear (yay for important stuff) sold for 24 bucks ("Trust me - this is a great deal - said the entrepreneur to the VC").

As I stated in my first reply, Timbo is ignored by Rotacak. I post here because I'm used to flinging poo and because I feel what's happening here is wrong. Timbo has done nothing but give you things, yet not even the simplest gesture of consideration comes from you.

Talking to a brick is about as useful in this situation as talking to people who are not Murnatan developers. It has nothing to do with what I think about you personally, even though I fully understand you want to make this as personal as possible, since that takes the focus away from the actual problem.

Still, no answer. Again: Why is it so hard to change the website and remove the Tremulous stuff?

Yes, YOU post here because YOU feel. Get a life Lava. As much personal as it gets? :D

Why the thread on forum, why not PM? Why not a thread by Timbo, why not a PM by him? Why by YOU and not Timbo?

actual problem
Boo hoo, plushy granger teddy bear, modelled after open source game that has 40 regular players total for last year, being sold for 24$ :)

Still no answer. It must be really hard.

Troll alert.

We've already gone over all of everything you've mentioned before, this game is being completely redesigned with it's own original characters and artwork, none of Tremulous' assets will be used in the end game.

If you have a problem with the pace that AAA Games is setting on it's webpage art design, then you can keep crying until everyone else here stops caring, or submit your own work.  It won't make much of a difference either way.



I would suggest that this thread be locked on grounds of trolling.
