And they say plagiarism is a form of flattery. If that's included within a commercial game without EGOSOFT's agreement I'd guess they'll be phoning their lawyers....

I'm keeping fingers and toes crossed that it's not some new screenshots showing off X-Rebirth! Sad

The-Last-Communist's point was probably more that some of the nebulas on these screenshots look pretty similar to the ones from X3.

If you have a closer look at the linked screenshot site, you find out that these screenshots belong to a French strategy game called "Celestus".

Rolling Eyes Sorry, my joke missed... reloading broma cannon as we speak! Laughing

PS: I've been up to my earlobes with X3 nebula over the last few weeks with a mod I'm working on and believe me they're more than "pretty similar"... more like identical.

Thats like saying someone stole your picture of some trees. X3's Nebulas come from false and true colour astrophotography anyway. Some inspired by it, others using it directly.

A photo of the Eagle Nebula is the same for anyone wanting to photograph it. You can't copyright that.

God or the people from Magrathea. (Although the latter are more into planet building I think). Razz

Well someone/somewhere must have supplied the images to Egosoft (I doubt they actually took the pics themselves) so why would another similar concept game not possibly use the same image sources to meet a similar need?

Quoted from some other place on the radio ....

"If an alien came to stay on our planet ,he would ask to see the manager"...
...on the subject of chaotic finance etc., across the globe.

I took a peak at the demo , linked in the German forum,iirc.

A lot of eye candy for those who like mega battles.
Don't know much more at the moment as this is still a concept .Not an actual available game,from what I read.

OK then still what I said 4 posts up, but for space image graphics rather than for actual pics.
