Welfordshire V2

Recommended Posts

Guest e34p

Sorry everyone, seems that people are a little sore after not having their alias names mentioned in the read me and as a result the link has been removed.

It turns out that not crediting people, literally by their fake names, is a life and death situation.

 

Personally I think it’s ******* pathetic. The game came out 12 years ago, the community is basically dead. Yet people are still getting hung up by not being credited by name.

 

Why not just enjoy V2 for what it is rather than moaning for the sake of moaning?

Yep, we released it 6 years ago. I really don’t care if anyone releases it or not. If anything it’s flattering. It’s not like anyone is earning from any of this

This is what has put me off releasing mods, Stuff getting taken and used without permission is one of the most depressing things that can happen to modders and really un-motivates us to work. Im sure you could have just asked for permission and it would have most likely been granted. This is im pretty sure why one of the greatest of all time @itchboyhas retired from modding. All i would want from the community is for a respectful modding community and taking it without asking isnt that. Lets try to pick the UK community up rather than keep holding it down.

I didn't know I had the skills to make a mod.

I guess I could just stick my name on a mod and claim I made it *shrugs*

You are completely right, the attitude of the community is disappointing. This will be the last mod I release. 

Most of the other UK mods are just the basic game with different models. This was a collection of all the best parts of the best mods. But if people didn’t want that then that’s fine. 
I have messaged people and asked for permission in the past few years, but as I said this community is basically dead and people don’t reply to messages because they no longer come here. 
 

I had absolutely nothing to gain by releasing this mod other than to let other people play it. I had already shared it with people I know in real life.

This is really disappointing to see. You would have thought that anyone creating a mod would have the common decency to credit original owners and not just publicly releasing content that doesn't even belong to them (London Mod).

As another big modder has said above @TACRfan (who does have the common decency to credit) - maybe you should take a leaf out of his book?

Because people like you and OTHER's not just targeting you... Use assets without perms like nothing. Disgusting attitude and disgusting behavior. Then people wonder why this community is near death or is in the bin.

I feel your pain and totally get nobody responding whenever you try to reach out.

I do also feel it a bit cynical for mods to be released and people not want others to build on what they've done. For me, that feels like a great honour that others want to extend the playability of your mod. So really, anything released should really be forced to be under an MIT licence allowing anyone to build upon and re-release.

However, I personally find it pretty quick and easy to compile credits as I add things to mods.

Like I said, I won't be releasing anything else in the future. The community had its chance to have an actually decent UK mod

You know what, that is a really valid point. Doesn't make us any better than this muppet though.

Again, completely agreed. Literally nobody is 'targeting' anyone. The situation stands that you just rip assets out of a 'collection of other mods' and claim for it to be your own. Don't know if it is just us decent people, but I would have thought it was common sense until now.

You quote this will be your last mod. If this is your mod anyway.... Ultimately, there was so much more potential with this mod. Rural elements and much more was a USP (Unique Selling Point) for V1. If you want the party of it being your last mod etc, Surly putting in that extra effort to make it unique and your own would have been a more viable option. 

I would like to point out, that quite often, this happens in ALL gaming/modding communities. However, each new case of this muppet based behavior happen, it just add's to the fire. If you kept with key USP's and elements that we all enjoyed regarding V1. May it have been better. All it involved is a simple apology for basically using assets that you didn't have perms to do so. If this is your last mod, maybe it's a hit and run situation. Release the mod and run to do other things other then EM4.

Like I said, this mod was primarily based on the fire service, the police and ambulance were an after thought that I wasn't concerned about. And at the end of the day, the map is just a map. I personally think that a good mod comes from the gameplay.

I literally have nothing to loose by the link being taken down. NOTHING. I'm keeping this argument up because I think everyone's response is over the top. This is only my last mod because of this reaction.

 

The reason communities die is because of the behaviour of people who can't see others using their work as a a compliment without having to be named.

The thing is its not like you're renown for releasing bad mods either, V1 of Welfordshire was a massive hit especially with its custom map. But stealing others work and not even leaving any credits is what began to kill this community in the first place. Others gave up their spare time into releasing mods for us to enjoy, and that should be respected, stealing their work is completely against this. 

This mod had a ton of potential, but by just making it into a ripped submod of London, you've lost that and your reputation you bloody vegetable

All you had to say is sorry for not crediting people. I take pictures but if someone took one of mine from six years ago and published it as their own, I'd be very annoyed. It doesn't matter age, copyright still exists.

The mod was simply a sub-mod with some new content but with the map hardly changed. I'm sure a lot more effort could've gone into it but you've decided to end your modding here with Welfordshire (V1, although there was never a V2).

Aye no face no case.. oh wait. Hit and run and the damage is done. 

 

You quote "using their work as a a compliment" - To this, a very large element of this community, is getting permission to re-distribute assets. Well unless you been living under a rock, that's the way it always has been. 

You also comment about other decent mods... Since when was your ripped london mod a decent mod.

Haha well played 😀 Please feel free to use my work (without credit), and if you release it I am only pleased that others get to play it.

And I don't agree that it was a submod. What I wanted from the mod was to release a mod with a realistic Uk fire service which functions well, everyhting else in the mod was there to support that.

Yes and this, in my opinion is where this community falls down, its unnecessary.

Oh well, MY OPINION is the community fall's down from re-distribution without perms. This is KNOWN to kill EM4. Many mod developer's have gone because of this. Simple fact's, simple outline. 

 

Hell, all it needs is a meaningful apology, move on and poof situation gone (Until another incident crops up) All of this is opinion based observation. Whether insults or whatever has been thrown into the air. There is simple procedure's in-place. 

 

You keep saying about other UK mods being non-existent, do you forget about KentMod? You know, one of the largest UK mod's in CURRENT time.

Well what has just happened is a mod has just been pulled from release because people weren't happy with a blanket credit to everyone. And as a result the community has lost out on a mod.

I've actually had others tell me how they think its a good mod and how it has improved the fire service side of things. 

I'm not apologising, like I say, I have nothing to gain from it being released. I just wanted to let others the opportunity to play it.

What is new about the Kent Mod other than different looking vehicles? Don't get me wrong, they are good vehicles, but I don't see anything new other than that.

I would like to point out that "blanket credit" wasn't the issue by the sounds of it. It was more of the fact of ripping from others mods, without the original mod creators permission...
