Other Gaming / Star Citizen game makers being sued

The makers of the crowdfunded space game Star Citizen are being sued for copyright infringement and breach of contract by development studio Crytek.
...
Crytek said it would seek damages and an injunction that stopped further use of its CryEngine game engine software.
...
Development of Star Citizen began in 2012 and since then it has raised more than $170m (126m) in crowdsourced funds from fans keen to play the ambitious space trading and combat game.
...
In particular, it says, a decision to develop two Star Citizen games violates an agreement that the software would be used to develop only one title.
...
In legal papers shared online, Crytek also alleges that RSI and Cloud Imperium have not honoured agreements to prominently display Crytek's logo in materials used to publicise the game.

RSI's decision to switch from CryEngine to a separate game development system from Amazon, called Lumberyard, also allegedly breaks contractual agreements between the two firms, it claimed.

1. Buying - check for the "buy cart" bottom left on the HUD (image if the icon on the HUD (with a zoom balloon)

1b. Ammo dump - can't we have material (pick-able) object represent the dumped ammo?
Would it be too much to ask for? I didn't even ask it be explosive if fired upon?

2. Repairing - we need an repairing icon on the HUD if the asset enters an repair area (an gear and an wrench?)

3. Weapon grouping is a good one (quite often encountered) (has to be illustrated - top right corner and keyboard block)

4. C-bills sent to players that are not spawned in the game, are lost to ComStar  (the red scull icon and ComStar badge drawing)

5. To enter an asset climb it, turn to it, and press [f] key. To jump further use [space] key (HUD displaying "enter" sign to be drawn)

6. If Your asset can't move while it's powered on, it's probably crouched or deployed, use [leftCtrl] to un-crouch (an crouched Atlas and the HUD indicator).

the above seems thus far the longest to last set dealing with most newbie related issues?

These need to be informative and easy to read.

Generally try to avoid anything that may get changed in future releases.

About stuff...

Weapons groups: arrow keys + control to set weapons groups (but is that final version?)
Reticle: press F1 to lock arms
Sending money: don't send money to dead players (it may be lost)
Repairing: Shut down [P] to start repairs (but not all build bays are repair bays and sadly that is map specific issue)

So many help ideas, so few screens available  ::)

@ Deimos,
Agreed.

Having had few discussions elsewhere too in this regard:

1. All external URL are to be avoided
2. All non endorsed subjects are to be kept off game ( or immersion suffers)
3. Humor is lacking (a wit or two not more)
4. New players suffer from lots of things
every once in a while we have an in game chat:
"how do I get into an mech?"
"how do I buy camo?"
"how do  I repair?" <-that's a most common one?
"why it won't repair?"
"how do I buy an mech?"

So, we need make this screens as practical and as useful as we can?

1. we try get them illustrated
2. we try get them to be clear (newbies don't know where to look for weapon groups, let alone adjust them)
3. how do you (and why) send money (and when)
4. "To enter an mech try to jump on it with your jump jets [space]"
5. "To buy an mech enter the buy menu [,] in buy area (the by cart should be depicted in the background)"
6. "To set the weapon groups use arrow keys and [space] (in background the weapon groups GUI element should be emphasized)"
7. "Sending money to a team mate will entitle a player to ask for it back when he needs it the most [right-ctrl][arrows][enter]"
8. "In chat type "spares?" to ask teammates for c-bills donation (word "spares?" emphasized in background image)"
9. "To fire artillery, deploy the asset with [left-ctrl], un-deploy to move on"
10. "Not each forward base can repair every asset - some do  up to only 60 tonnes"

Each message should be illustrated in a convenient and helpful way.

Let's see some more suggestions and gather the needed in game images?

Your ownership of the domain would ensure that it will get purged from any and every official documentation. I would tread carefully if I were you.

1. is not really important to new players in the game
2.-6. make no sense to have them ingame. The launcher already has a bunch of links to: twitch, reddit, discord, facebook, youtube and the wiki
Links in general make no sense in the game as you can't click them and they might change or become invalid at some point.

Imo if you really want to add to those screens, you should think about important stuff for new players
