NO ONE has a say to convert cars. You can convert anything!

Postby zoot » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:52 pm

Okay, guys. Vote this up to be a Sticky.

I've seen a lot of monopoly of the vehicles to be converted lately. People saying to ask others if they can convert cars to the game.

But that's not how it works. This is supposed to be a fun game to modify, not a game with rank and monopoly. So here's the thing:

If you want to convert a car, go ahead a do it. Someone else has it planned? So what? Convert it if you want a release it. No one has a say to any of the game models, planned or not.

So, anyone who has planned vehicle, and if someone has it done, let them do it. You can do it, too. Release on MMArchive, MM2x, or any MM site you want. It's your choice.

I second this because anyone should have the freedom to convert any car they want.

I agree, it always annoys me when someone has to "ask" another member to convert a car that they don't own. I've always believed that anything made for this game in particular should be public domain, that's why I leave my stuff unlocked, and allow people to use my work to make other mods. (look at almost any of the sky mods released here)

I also find it hypocritical that every single converter here actually believes they have a right to lock their addons on the basis that they don't want anyone stealing THEIR work... as if they owned the models. xD

If im converting the car, and someone starts the exact same car, There's just 2 versions, that's all I think of it.

Converters can still make a list of cars that they want to/would be converting, just for information. But that won't stop others from trying their hands on models from that list. Nice to have implemented a more 'democratic' idea. :)

This is how I thought it should be...

I, being new to converting cars and releasing them, have been frustrated by people telling me "no, you can't convert this because I have this planned." I have some 40 cars I've finished just for my own use that I haven't released (some of them, nobody's released). So I think this should up my confidence a bit more.

Wow! That's quite a few models. Is your confidence upped enough that you're now going to submit them? :D
