Hey, well... where to start. Just saw the news about this new mod and that my sound mod was added. Funny i thought, seems very familiar. Whenever i do some of these enhancement mods to any game, they allways end's up in another dudes mod. The thing is that i don't really have anything against it, but all im asking is can't someone just ask me BEFORE?, but then again, i can't do shit about it. But all im asking is some respect. Aralez couldn't you have contacted me and we could have talked about this?. Then again, now it's too late. Other than this, i can't even find any credits or remote information in your readme that points out that you've used some of my sound mod?. Im at work now (As usually), so i can't really test the mod out. So can't you, or anyone else please explain what the features of this new mod has? I understand you just want to make a cool mod, but we really need to stick together we modders. Last time something like this happened to me, a dude just copied my entire mod and replaced my name with his. After that he had the guts to accuse ME of stealing his mod. Bah! It all ended up with me leaving the modding scene for that game. When doing mods, you spend most of your freetime creating it. Neglecting friends and loved ones just to get the that piece out to the fans of the game. And then seeing other people taking it apart really makes you sad.
I in general different people do their small mods focused on different aspects of a game, like sound, tweaks and graphics. Thats swell, and i like that. Thats the way i think it should be. Different people, focusing on different things they do best. But what i don't like, is a second part, that takes all mods and slap em togheter to make some kind of "megamod" thingy out of it. (And, not giving the people credits for their parts). This might not be the case this time, since we really only can have one extra vfs file at the present. But i really feel that in the future, when we can have different mods running, we should have the mods separated so that people really can have the abillity to choose what aspects of the game they would like to change.
The only lesson of this really should be.
Try and ask modders for permission or what else before using their mods.
