Does this look familiar to you?

And this?


They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, so I suppose this is a good thing. :cool:

Wow... just wow....

At least they sort of credited Ein under "inspiration". Not sure how they got some of those models though.

He has a website for the bloody thing.

It's built entirely in Shockwave Flash. While he doesn't directly copy all the biome names, he does blatantly rip off the Midlands/Stormhaven and all the biome descriptions.
Sadly, Empirical isn't letting anyone harness the unlimited power of the Internet to troll this thief into oblivion.
Oh, and his example of a "bad" application is more coherent than the application he submitted to us.

Can we report him for stealing, because some of those models are a direct copy of the servers! He must have hacked or something....!!! And he pisses me off!

I think he may have taken them from the build map save file that is on the forums somewhere, as pointed out by dedwrekka.

And he stole your texture pack, just put it on then and its exactly the same as nations at war only the image in 'Texture Packs' doesnt give credit to anyone who made it, only says Nation Wars...

Edit: Im with you ghepip haha is a real annoyance. Just posted a few comments on all his creations and his server. He has taken credit for basically everything such as the world tree, the red crab monster, texture pack, the clouds with chains, everything.

As much as I think it is incredibly low that he has created a sub-standard rip off of N@W and passed a lot of stuff off as his own, you gotta hand it to him. After being rejected from applications, he goes off and creates his own rip off version of this server, wow. That takes initiative. He really must care about this server.

I dunno guys. I'm just trying to look at this in a positive light.

If he did care about it so much then he would of atleast said where he got everything from instead of taking credit for it all. Sorry for not trying to see it as positive but all that tells me is that he is untrustworthy and dishonest with no respect for the real creators.

I think he's just a kid and you're overthinking this.
