I am thinking of making a mod

Post by geon » Sun Mar 11, 2018 9:47 pm

Having seen what happened to the Axanar fan film, and now finding out that star trek renegades has been forced to drop all star trek references in their future episodes, makes me wonder if this site will be similarly affected. Specifically, I'm wondering whether future mods will have to have the star trek references removed . The company is certainly being an ass about all this, and I was considering doing a mod.....but not if these ridiculous restrictions are going to come into play. Some clarification, please, guys

Regards

Geon

Hi geon,

It is doubtful they would waste their time. If you look most ST game have mods. The only thing I have ever heard of an issue is when they planned on charging for files.

but also questions like this bring attention, if they are doing searches so I changed your topic title.

Thanks Thunderchero....it's a sad state of affairs when Star Trek fans have to question the legality of their own work

So any clues to your mods concept?

if you have any questions or if you would like me to setup a base installer let me know.

Just read this post sfb.swa-gaming.org/node/333 concerning a site owner having to take down his ssd site for star fleet battles because of pressure from the company.
This is a worrying development. Can organisations and companies now claim your work under new copyright laws?

1. ssd = Ship Status Displays (images)
2. no actions was ever taken by Amarillo Design Bureau Inc. toward that site and images in question are still on that site.
3. posts you linked are 7 years old.

and if you want to know the truth, yes it could happen. but as I stated before if there is no charge or profit involved they will more than likely leave us alone.

I hope you're right, Thunderchero. I hate when companies go after sites like this one which is full of their most loyal fans essentially.
