As some of you might remember, we had an art contest here a couple years back that never went anywhere, no winners declared .
I, as well as others, made various media to fulfill the various areas of the art contest .
Screen shots, backgrounds, lore etc ... (  in my sig, you will see "Kahri's story" ... it was my lore  entry )
 
So I am facebooking and looking at APB reloaded page and I run across a bunch of very familiar looking screen shots .
 
I wouldn't normally think anything, but these screen shots are too uncanny to ignore, like they literally tried their best to steal my screen shots without outright stealing them .
 
So here we go, G1/RP knock off's of my art contest screen shots .... enjoy .
 
Water front buildings 1
Spoiler


Waterfront Bridge 1
Spoiler


Waterfront bridge 2
Spoiler


Bayland container ship 1
Spoiler


The time of day, the angle, almost identical in every screenshot ....

They say impersonation is the sincerest form of flattery, but since they never declared an art contest winner, I kind of feel ripped off .

:/

( my screen shots are way better, much nicer composition by far .... but nice try G1 ... )

Are we looking at the same screenshots? They are all shot at different times of day and location, its not liked they just plopped the camera down on the exact same spot.

The second and third doesn't look similar at all.

 

Man, I took screenshots of that bridge sometimes, that means I own the copyright to it now.

 

Don't forget that Movvom ship, it's owned by Shamis.

the second one is taken up a little higher and back about 50m from my original ....
the third one is the most different, but still, very close .

Oh boy they made some screenshots of key locations in waterfront!

You can't claim copyright on them as it's their game and the angles aren't even the same. Everything you do or buy in this game is owned by G1, not you.

//Edit: By the way, G1's "version" looks better than yours.

Stop being so arrogant and realise that you are just taking generic pictures of waterfront. Asking for "something" for this is so stupid.

 

Why did this need a thread?

Stop being so angry at life

Since a lot of us entered the art contest, and no one was declared a winner, and they basically stole my screen shots, I have a legitmate gripe here .
We spent hours taking screen shots and creating art for the contest and entering to win the prizes, not get ripped off .

"Stole"? What did they "steal"?

They took pictures of their own game. You have no ground to stand on here. Stop acting like you do.

Really?  I've taken the same screenshots plenty of times as well from damn near the same angles.  These are all iconic locations of Waterfront, of course that's where they're gonna use screenshots from, not some back alleys that nobody knows exists.

 

(Personally I think G1's look better.  The night time screenshots in yours are a little too dark for my liking and they had theirs a little earlier in the day so everything has a little glow on it with a nice pink and orange sky.  The current night time in APB is just ugly.  The water especially looked better.)

Yeah, I have to say you kinda took pictures of some of the most common areas in the game.
Also, I have to agree that G1s look better.

They actually did chose pictures. One of them was mine, and I got a redeem code for it. Some G1C if I recall correctly.

Don't be salty because your generic waterfront pictures didn't make it.

Stop acting like your screenshots are art wonders that deserve to be displayed in a museum.

These are the biggest landmarks in waterfront, which also differentiate the district from financial and asylum - of course everyone takes pictures of them

Tbh if someone was lazy enough to "steal" your photos, they would have just used the ones you took, since g1 owns the rights to them

Flattened as a flounder. 

 

Also, saying ur screens are better than g1s is like, ur opinion man. If someone says otherwise does not make them wrong. I like g1s screens in most cases here because of different lighting and stuff, its a good change for ones.

I've taken screenshots of those locations in waterfront years ago. Did I copy you too?

 

Knock it off. They didn't steal from you or do anything wrong. You are clearly looking to stir up trouble for the sake of it.

There are people so blind to this mommyty company. I can understand why you're upset, they gave you some mommyty contest nobody wins and uses the pictures you used.

Obviously you dont own them but you still took the time out to take those pictures and they use the similar ones without even announcing that you won or whoever

I wish we had Fair Fight here on forums. But instead of banning hackers, it would be banning useless threads like this one.

 

For real. :doh1:

 

And G1 Screenshots look way better than yours anyway. kek

not sure I completely understand this question, but this is the FB picture thread I saw the pics in ...

https://www.facebook...?type=3

There are probably 40 screen shots in there tops ?
Wasnt like I had to search long and hard to find some pics that looked like the ones I took if you are insinuating I went digging to try and find something to complain about ...

 

They actually did chose pictures. One of them was mine, and I got a redeem code for it. Some G1C if I recall correctly.


I still have the link to the submission thread and you never even entered ... smh .

and that was basically my whole point , ty for getting / understanding it .

As others have said  - maybe you'd have a right to be pissed off if you'd done something unique; pictures of those locations have been posted many times before and not just by you. They're not even that similar lol.

Hang on, let me see if I get this.

 

You are miffed that G1 has about 40 pictures on their webpage, and 4 of them somewhat resemble screenies you have taken, except the angles and distances to the objects are different?
