Fly Seattle textures on tour again

Post by george[flytampa] » Sat Jul 15, 2006 7:40 pm

Hey guys,

Check out this monkey art on Simmarket.
http://secure.simmarket.com/product_inf ... ts_id=1987

Look at the textures in the first shot & compare to the original from Seattle below.

Ripped off? Looks like it to me.
Shots 7 & 8 look like Seattle's main taxiway texture too.

I don't know what to do about this.
This happens too often & we ignore it.

Contact SimMarket with your evidence and see if they are willing to pull the product from sale.

I don't think it will sell... it looks like crap as a tile.

Funny that there was a thread a month or 2 ago asking if you guys would do something like that. I would contact simmarket, time to pwn these assholes that steal stuff.

My thoughts exactly, paavo. Here is the thread in question: viewtopic.php?t=1637

I think it's time for George and Martin to get themselves some goons to do their "dirty" work...

It most certain looks like the same art, can not imagine how they thought it wouldn't be noticed.

I should go on their forum and quote this whole topic here! It might get their attention...

You need to take action on this George. At the very least get it removed from simmarket. These guys need to be made an example of.

You should definitely pursue this.

What makes people buy your sceneries is the amazing quality of them. And the textures are huge part of that. If you let them go off with using your textures, that's like losing your quality advantage over other products, and ultimately the money that could go to you instead.

Don't let them use your work in their product.

I wish somebody would buy this thing and compare the textures. I'm a guy that makes textures and Flytampas concrete is a work of art, I would be beyond pissed is somebody stole a texture I made.

He did email me to say he'd removed the offending textures.

This happens quite often, although they usually have the sense to edit it.

My personal favourite is this one..
http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?Ca ... DLID=76713

I love the description of how he made it. It’s actually the grass texture from Boston V1.

I should ask Evolve AI to add a few more names to their Wall Of Shame.

LOL, and he says it's unofficial, I like that wall of shame, and there should be a retraction on that concrete like traffic 2005 had to do on the front page of avsim and flightsim.

Here's another one....

This piece of crap is just full of ripped LOWW textures. He's so dumb he's not even re-named the textures.
