Star Trek Missions / unauthorized modded missions

Post by Do_Checkor » Mon Mar 11, 2013 1:07 pm

Does anyone know who the guy is - stealing missions to edit and re-release them without asking the original authors?

Got a couple of questions and complaints already...

I know the guy who remade Subway Dancer Star Track. Cool it turned out :) He called this level 1_sd_edit_pm. It remade not only the Star Track, but also other levels. As far as I know, this modder from the very beginning and constantly keeps in touch with the author the Star Track. What specifically it stole in your opinion? Authorship? At whom? In what it is expressed? Who complains and on what is concrete? Please give links to sources of claims/

Add: Now it turned out that we do not know for certain exactly who the author Subway Dancer Star Track

I think he was voicing concerns about the Mission file being modded without permission sig, I'm not sure if anyone has heard from Atan in a while, and i don't think outrage would even notice, so it'd be near impossible to get permission from them.

thanks. I can say that not least, it was modified, including, Subway Dancer since this level now is in online one of popular in players. In my opinion, attempts to improve popular levels can be encouraged only. Especially as it turned out successfully, in my opinion
