Derek Smart Does not Represent the Star Citizen Community

Recommended Posts

He tries to subvert the development process, claims to represent us. But in fact he is none other than one of the very vocal few (and non-constructive) ex-backer of Star Citizen and a horrendous game producer with a terribad track record at it.

Please sign here if you agree and detest his acts of sabotage.

Lol, gonna report his vaporware with that picture as reason.

Btw @Genesis damn bro, you've got LoD on your wishlist. Better fix that.

It's funny that even the most "positive" reviews are actually negative reviews.

Read His response to the open letter..

 

http://guardfrequency.com/an-open-letter-to-derek-smart/

This guy even wrote it without being offense. Nice one.
If Derek is going to continue after that letter, it's double definite that he's a stubborn, brainless troll.

This is Derek Smarts answer:

So yeah, he's indeed a stubborn, brainless troll.

Is that for real? He really responded to that well made letter with this?
Well, yeah, worthless troll. I'd request we all stop giving him (or it?) any kind of attention from now on. Don't post anything about him, don't read his crap, just deny his existence. He's going to die within an hour then.
I already feel disgusted by wasting my time for reading his response.
From now on he's classified as dead to me.

The letter was very well written and addressed, and although D.Smart did respond very poorly to it, perhaps a thread on their page a little bit further down the page titled "Guard Frequency Episode 081 | The Church of Chris Roberts" and the following picture helped compose the response?

I'm not siding with Derek Smart by ANY MEANS.  I'm just wondering if we were all to be mature adults and not feed the flames that perhaps he would go away...  Or maybe not.

 

(EDIT:  Is it wrong that I laughed a little bit too long when I first saw the above picture?)

I'm only curious how much time he's dedicated to LoD in the past six months. Because he either doesn't sleep like Elon Musk or....no, fuck that. Elon Musk gets almost no sleep and is incredibly productive. DS only produces inflammatory tripe. That's right, Derek Smart is a bleeding ulcer.

He does know how to attract people attention.

Anyway, he is free to do whatever he decides but this may backfire on him.

In his article he claims he has grounds to charge CIG for defamation. 
Reality is he is the one that actually should be worried about that.

He is the one that has made accusations regarding some employees personal lives.
He is the one that started making accusations without proof to back them.

In one of his previous blog posts http://www.dereksmart.org/2015/07/interstellar-discourse/  , he makes a direct attack on Sandi and Eric for instance.

The fact or not that Sandi is Chris Roberts wife is completely irrelevant.

His accusations and personal attacks to CIG employees were done prior to any reaction from CIG. 

If he does want to turn this into a legal battle, CIG may end up being forced to disclose information. But if proven "innocent", CIG is in every right to accuse Derek Smart and request a compensation for the damages he has inflicted to CIG image.

It's all a matter of burden of proof.

If he sues ( and most likely he won't) he has no legal cause for action ( he has been refunded), he has to prove or at least give very very good cause for suspicion that there has been money mishandling using only his sources ( very hard to do) and at best he can aim for a refund ( yeah...).

If things go DS way ( dreamy lil world I know): he keeps prodding CR/Sandi/CIG until they sue him, then if they say that he is slandering them about mismanaging the money the burden of proof is on them and they have to open the books in order to show it ( which is what he wants). On top of that being sued opens the door for contersuing and damage compensations and rumors say he's a lil short on cash.

Luckily CIG has a quite good and well known lawyer as a cofouner so I doubt they will fall for it.

BTW the fact CIG doesn't want to show the books means nothing: even if everything is in order ( like I believe) he will start riling poeople and bitching at their choices until the game is out ( why they rented here and not there, why this guy is getting this much money, hiring that studio would have been better, who is in the cast for SQ42), giving him fuel for ages for the flame wars he is so famous for.

 

As a further note, to all that think that, well, in the  end, it's a good thing if CIG shows the books in the name of being open: this guy says he is doing it in our name, for justice and fairness.

And is plan to achieve that is that CR should step down and hand his accounting books to a forensic ( as in: specialist about finding iregualarities) accountant, which DS, as the chief of a rival enterprise ( he keeps comparing LOD to SC) and as a man with a long querelle with CR, would graciously have on his payroll ( he said he would pay for it).

Like if Burger King said that unless the head concho of MC Donalds resigns and they hand them their accounting books they will sue them for whatever reason.

All fair and square, really......

      Greetings citizens!
      After almost two months of absence, I finally released a new video - this time it's the MISC Prospector commercial, special for the contest by CIG.
      So, two my videos in a row was made a special for contests - but 3.3 is coming! Which means there will be new content in the game, which means there will be new videos from me  
      The creation of this video was not easy, and I'm not completely sure about the final version - perhaps due to the fact that I looked it 400 times while making edits, and I already tired from it.
      I hope you will enjoy it. Also, you can support the post with this video in the Spectrum.
      Enjoy watching!

      I done this to my SSD with Star Citizen and it fixed the 1 FPS drops.
      Video:
      https://youtu.be/rA3lHNKWb_4?t=226
       
      If you have windows 10, follow the guide on the video, if you have windows 7, just go into control panel, at the top right search for advanced system and click 'View advanced system settings', on the left click [Advanced System Settings].
      Next click on [settings] under performance in the advanced tab.
      Next click on the [advanced] tab at the top, then click [Change], click your SSD drive with Star Citizen on it and click Custom Size, I have mine set to min 18000 and max 40000, multiple your ram by 1.5 on a calculator and use that as your min.
      This fixed my game dropping to 1 FPS and lagging in general, hope it helps!
       
      Side note:
      RAM is high speed.
      HDD and SSD are relatively slow speed.
      The idea of a page file is a "RAM overflow" area set aside on the HDD or SSD. This is a way of cheating some extra apparent RAM into the system but if it gets used there is a performance hit because of the slower speed of the Drive vs RAM.
      Suggests a sort of "right back at ya" approach, instead of putting the page file on the drive, create a virtual drive partition within RAM, and target the page file there.
      'If you have 32GB of RAM, this is not needed.'
      Its counter intuitive because if you have that much RAM to begin with it shouldn't need to hit the page file at all. This is a way of providing it a page file anyway but at a higher speed. Pretty clever if it works right.
      It also saves wear and tear on the SSD which have a finite number of read/write cycles. RAM is designed to be rapidly and constantly switched. SSD is designed to tolerate it to an extent but not an infinite one.
