Why are you so inclined to lie when the question is asked if there is a
non-stock importer Armada for Milkshape. You could just say that there is
but that you do not support it at your forum, or you could just use
plausible deniablility and say that you do not know of any.
The fact that you continue to delete my posts and claim they are illegal
implies some sort of sinister intent, and fear in the least. What do you
have to loose if noobies can import and kitbash models or even re-import
their own models? All men are created equal, in a modding community there
are no bosses or monopolies. It is time for a level playing field. If you
continue to restrict the knowledge of ways to import 3rd party Armada
models, I will proactively seek to break the monopoly.
Like I stated in the forum, according to the EULA that accompanies the
importer, it is NOT illegal for me to change the Armada Importer to allow
stock models. Milkshape has NO restrictions on its pluggins. And, do you
think Activision really cares if 3rd party models can be converted from
*.sod if all of their models have already been ripped out of the game?
It is time for the Armada community to come out of the dark ages and join
the other modding communities where mesh sharing is condoned and encouraged.
Cecilzero, you owe me and explaination. You said there was no importer, then
you said it was illegal to change the Milkshape one. Why lie like that?
Major A Payne, what are you so scared of? Are your models so run-of-the-mill
that if they were "stolen" people could not tell that they were yours? I
know for a fact that you have the capability to import and edit *.sod files.
Why deny others?
You guys have 2 weeks to bust up your monopoly before I start taking action.
I do not need armadafleetcommand.com to do it.
Let Freedom Ring!
Now to point in question, and to answer this I'll go through this email, one section at a time:
Point 1: To begin with this seems to imply that I have lied about the existence of this non-stock importer. IM. Have you never heard of deformation of character. To imply that I have lied when I have clearly never done so, is in itself something which you can be held under duress for.
Point 2: I have never claimed under any circumstances, that your threads/replies on this subject are "illegal", and have edited them as I see the need to. There is one thing about people who edit and release materials made by others but what of the countless times that no credit has been issued to the original creator of said material. Do you deny that, that has never happened or are you blinded by the fact that you allow free editing of your models and textures when others are either not so keen to, or simply do not want editings done to their work (and I've seen it happen on plenty of occasions)??
Point 3: This forum has little to nothing to do with Activision and as such does not abide by the game or SOD plugin importers EULA, and to make that statement clearly implies that it does.
Point 4: As for the Armada community "coming out of the dark ages". Armada is well past its sell by date, and whilst there are a few who still mod it, for the most part the community has gone onto better things.
Point 5: I can't speak for Cecil as such, but why should their be ANY explanation forthcoming when you, yourself cannot offer any reasonable explanation concerning your actions on the forum??
Point 6: Me scared?? I would have though that with the release of EVERY model I've created in its native Autodesk 3ds format, onto AFC would have been proof enough that what you claim is simply untrue and a statement which you should refute as well (try checking the downloads area next time).
Point 7: I take it by this particular threat you intend to make a release of the non-stock importer elsewhere. Well to this I would say, that that is your perogative, but be warned yourself. if anything is found to be released in this manner, whereby any SOD file (and not just mine or for example, Flops models) and no credit is given then not only will the person involved be held responsible. So will you, and you can feel free to take that as a threat, promise or both.
Finally and most importantly. This forum, just as any other, has a set of rules which are enforced by the members of staff here. These rules can be changed or otherwise edited at any time without any members (including you), permission or say so. Should you not adhere to these rules then you can, and will be removed for an undisclosed length of time, or on a permanant basis. This is not a democracy. We do not vote on who does what or how someone acts. We do not vote on the banning of a troublesome member. That is why we have moderators and administrators, and if you can't see that or are not willing to abide by those rules then you should go elsewhere.
As it stands you were removed for 3 reasons:
1) After having your thread reply edited by myself, you felt it necessary to re-edit it.
2) By editing your own reply a second time, you then felt it necessary to goad Cecilzero into some kind of arguement.
3) You also felt it necessary to continue argueing (albeit mildy) with Phantom concerning the matter.
Now as a result you were removed from the forum (and I do frown upon members who re-edit a staff editing, which I placed into your reply). Now to point in question. I want you to respond to this and I'm sure several others will as well, and depending on that response will depend on whether you remain on the forum. As it stands and the way I see it, this is your attempt to "get back" at me for banning you from the forum so that you could not voice your opinion.
