BREAKING NEWS: FPC & SEE Virtual Worlds Join Forces

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by NotAdmin, Dec 22, 2010.

    RAZER Custom title ... uh ...

    Why I made my post about what I think will happen with SEE and FPC is the name SEE Digital STUDIO.
    This suggests to me that they will be building the planets under contract from some other company (that will be SEE Virtual Worlds from the USA). It is usually a game studio that builds a game for another company, the one with the big bucks. And because SEE DS and FPC are in the same building it is very likely that some how they will be using the same people (why shouldn't they use people that have years of experience). So the controversy will be that ALL people working at FPC will be fired and rehired at SEE DS (speculation of course !)

    Yes PCF will probably change more to, although the name would be weird it it is going to be for multiple planets, so yes we might get a new forum with sub-forums for all planets.
    But to be honest everything they do with PCF is not as shocking as the sale from NeoMaven to FPC, so for me there is no controversy in that, unless they delete the database and start from scratch.

    Oh, I think I may have misread your post RAZER, because I happen to agree with what you just said ... and actually something I said myself (maybe it was in a post at PCF) ... that FPC personnel will transition to SDS, and maybe not necessarily be fired and rehired ... companies take over companies, so it's really nothing new, just a transition. I also said somewhere the SDS is most likely a subsidiary now of SEE Virtual Worlds who are actually located in the US, and will be the development branch of SEE for the planets.

    So I guess we were actually saying the same thing. :)

    Looks like we do ;)
     
  4. SEE has done Star Trek related stuff before and movie related stuff... lots of potential there to see massive increase in content of EU, and in the appeal to the masses. Maybe the hold off on hangers is in place because hanger owners will eventually all get their own Star Trek Enterprise? Of course, not sure I'd want to be the boat owner that ends up with Titanic.

    Ok so this is fun. Dug a little further and came across this:

    SEE VIRTUAL WORLDS CONSULTING, LLC
    LOS ANGELES, CA (000) 000-0000

    SEE VIRTUAL WORLD MJ, LLC
    LOS ANGELES, CA (000) 000-0000

    SEE VIRTUAL WORLD, LLC
    LOS ANGELES, CA

    It is from a register of US companies (Find new business listings nationwide) (not the official one I think and I did a search on SEE Virtual and came up with the 3 entries above.

    The SEE VIRTUAL WORLD MJ, LLC one kinda supports the fact that they make different companies for different planets (MJ for Michael Jackson). I'm pretty sure that when the Universal planets comes closer there will be a new company to.

    I wonder what the consulting one does.
     
  7. What i find controversial is that this is definite proof that not all planet partners are equal, neither will they ever be.
    SEE gets FPC, aka the people that actually designed the whole game and know the inner workings of everything, the ones that physically stand in the same office space with the administrators of the universe (MA), meaning that they have a huge advantage over all other planet partners.
    Think about it. Neverdie (personal opinions about him can stay in other threads) stated that they actually DON'T KNOW what's in the update, because due to the time zone difference they have no way of knowing when the last server sync was, what is working and what is not. The problems of that can be seen in the launch of NI, where mobs were missing for one day till the next update.
    In the case of SEE/PCF, all they have to do is raise their voice and ask for a server sync, and if there's a bug after the VU another small patch follows immediately afterwards.

    In other words, if you are a planet partner but not SEE you are royally *blip*ed.
    Next island looks and feels way better than i expected, surpassing PCF's designs by a margin, even with its number of bugs. Planet Arkadia and Planet Cyrene promise to take the game to a whole new level, both in story and visuals, but what good is all that if you’re always a BIG step behind the competition?

    I hope that in some magical way, things will turn out way different than the above.

    The initial post has been updated with some additional info uncovered by RAZER and Tass, providing what we feel is additional proof that SEE bought the rights to Calypso.
     
  9. Well that pretty much confirms it, I guess they will have several different companies running each planet and have the main SEE company just charge fees to each planets division so if one planet isn't doing so well they can just wind down that one company without the other planets having to fund the losses. Quite clever really.
     
  10. Good detective work by all involved. The above quote was the definite confirmation I was looking for.

  11. Not sure if good or bad...
    Overall opinion.... It's all about Marco.... ...............................

    I think what Casey meant was that it would appear that Marco has a finger in each of the pies.

    Well, I asked because it wasn't obvious to me what you were referring to ... could have been anything, but I get it now.

    Thank you Jarman, it means a lot ... and thank you also for your support at PCF. Our intentions are always honorable in our efforts to keep the community informed, and the E-Team works hard to make it happen.

    Happy Holidays Hon! :)
     
  19. You are very welcome, I am always ready to support the honorable actions of others.

    I have noticed that there is a huge issue with people on the Internet when it concerns "Plagiarism", "Intellectual Property", and "Copyfraud".

    So here are a few links to better explain the seriousness of these infractions,

    First - Plagiarism

    Plagiarism Law & Legal Definition

    Second - Intellectual Property

    Intellectual Property Law & Legal Definition

    Thirdly - Copy Fraud

    Copyfraud Law & Legal Definition

    I have seen countless postings on various EU related forum threads (especially PCF) that blatantly violate these very important law's, and from what I have seen, who ever owns/moderates their forum either does not know what these infractions are or simply chooses to ignore them. I used uslegal's web service to post these links but every country in the world has these law's some where in place. Would be nice to see owners/moderators of other sites start to enforce this vigorously.

    Cheers
     
  20. Couldn't have said it better.. yep it means a lot! :)
    Rock onward you guys . you have a great team here :)
