Car Jack Streets

http://www.carjackstreets.com/

Do any of the cars in the 'Vehicles' section seem familiar to anyone?

Re: Car Jack Streets

I can see a problem in that's it a rip-off, not my actual one, don't know what to do...

Although it's a pretty blatant rip-off...

Re: Car Jack Streets

lol I know the feeling Delfi. You can't help but feel if someone DID steal your stuff sure you'd be annoyed, but you'd also feel a little bit satisfied, right?

Re: Car Jack Streets

You're meant to steal cars, that's the whole point.

Re: Car Jack Streets

There's definitely a couple of Kreyz cars there - and I think JRS' fire engine and merc. Shocking.

EDIT: Sent the cunt a nasty e-mail. Turns out apple don't have a complaints section, so I'll have to settle with having abused the gits. At least 8 of the cars there are nicked from here!

Re: Car Jack Streets

I got an e-mail reply... interesting reading...

//From: James Davies Sent: 26 October 2010 15:52
To: carjackstreets@tag-games.com
Subject: Image Theft

Dear Thieving Git,

Just so you're aware, people have realised you stole and copied images from http://azz.gouranga.com. For your information, I have included an image illustrating some of the carbon copies (and plain rip off, cut and shut jobs) you have done, using original materials from this site. Had you had the courtsey to ask, then the members of this site would gladly allowed you to use their images, in their original un-adulterated forms - instead, you've made them look shite and the apple store will be getting a copy of this e-mail.

Yours,

A member of the GTA community.

//Hi James,

Good to hear from you! I have a sneaky feeling we have traded emails before when I was at DMA after we launched the original GTA. If so I hope you are well – it’s been a long time.

In terms of your email regarding art assets then I understand your concern, however I do need to point out that we had Jamie Bryan who was one of the original GTA 1 artists doing the vehicle art for Car Jack hence the similarity. I don’t think it’s a fair complaint given that you are essentially saying that you are unhappy that the art style (Jamies) your community has copied has then been copied by us! I’m sure you can see the problem you’ll have upholding your argument there.

Obviously we both share the same passion for GTA and as the original designer of Liberty City I’m always delighted when people take our original game and build their own ideas upon it. I don’t want to create any bad blood between my new company (Tag) and the folk at gouranga so as a way of smoothing things over how would you feel about running an exclusive comp to get art from the community into the Car Jack Streets sequel?

Look forward to hearing from you

Cheers

Paul Farley

Re: Car Jack Streets

I don't think his logic is very sound... Just because he did the original GTA artwork doesn't mean he can't have stolen from us... I mean that street sweeper is pretty much exactly my one, I mean how often in real life are street sweepers orange? They're nearly ALL white...

Edit -  Also, I don't mean to be rude to the guy and I know we all probably had a lot more time on our hands to refine our skills, but they're not even as good quality as our stuff... I think they'd be getting a lot of high-quality game art for free...

Street sweepers are always orange in germany, I've rarely seen a different coloured one here.

Re: Car Jack Streets

Does anyone have any comparison pictures? cos call me stupid but i can't see many screenshots, and the ones i can see are rather small, with no street sweeper, just a kind of clown car beetle and a red lancia type thing.
So all in all i don't really know who is over-reacting to who here.


I can't belive you've done this.

Re: Car Jack Streets

Meklo, why did you have to write such a shitty email? Way to make GTAzz look like a bunch of wankers.

Can someone upload a comparison? Because they don't look cut 'n shut to me...

I must say I'm not massively impressed with the art though, compared to some of the GTAzz stuff.

Re: Car Jack Streets

I don't think an of is cut and shut at all really, just 'ripped off'. I guess when it comes down to it, this stuff happens and there's very little anyone can do about it, haha..
