I have made my position clear, give credit where it is due, but permissions requirements are a violation of copyright laws. No further argument, I have presented this as an informative warning of questionably legal practices, whether or not my advice is taken is up to authors and moderators themselv...

What is there to look at? You are advocating the artists' rights, but they have no rights under fair use of star trek material and star trek doesn't pass into public domain for another 30 years, if that's what you are insinuating. Sorry, I know you want rights, but you have to hold a copyright. Unfo...

If you read your own links you'd see that yes indeed by requiring permissions, you are exercising a right of the copyright holders to control material. Doing so is illegal because it violates the fair use agreement that allows one to create material related to star trek. Quite simply the right for p...

This is here because it's polite to ask somebody for their permission to use their model that probably took a very long time. Further more, some people take somebody else's model, make minor changes to the mesh, and don't give credit to the original author. The author doesn't matter, the material i...

Sprite question

I have run into a wall, I want to make multiple special weapons of the same class. Like a romulan spy weapon for each race, and use different sprites for each. Problem is many sprites appear to be hard coded, does anyone know how to force the engine to use the sprite you specify? I have my weapon sp...

Why is this even here? Don't get me wrong, I support artists rights, but legally no one needs to be credited for their works because they are copies of copyrighted work owned by Paramount or others. Original works may be copyrighted by their owners. This is just a little info to let you know that ac...

I die a little inside when I hear the borg sound set from Armada 2. BTW I was shocked to learn the storylines from A1 & A2 have been stricken from the canon. :(

Gmax

Does anyone know if there is a way to export to sod from G-max? I like to model in G-max, but I haven't found a sod plugin yet.
