So I would like to release a mod using content from the Toxic Raider mod for fallout 4. I tried messaging the original creator but I haven't gotten a response after a full month. under Author's instructions it says "Feel free to use any of my assets as long as you give me credit". So can I release my mod as long as I give him credit as per his instructions.

as long as you give him credit  AND as long as it says that on his mod, then - yes :)

Capture the original permissions from the authors mod page and preserve it for future proof that you did indeed have permission at the point that you released your mod.

better yet post the actual permission as a pic on your mods page :)

Like others have said, make sure the credit is visible on your mod's page.

 

I know it is the wrong forum, but Nexus should have a special type of inbox for permission requests.

As far as I know many people are spammed with too much negative / junk mail for the mods they put out so the inbox is understandably ignored

@thousande; A good idea, except how does one keep such an in-box from getting spammed anyway?

@Thandal:

 

First, sorry I did not catch the mention before now :wink: and forgive my bad English. It is not my first language

 

Not sure if we are talking about different spammers here :smile: Bots or humans

 

I am a noob when it comes to Nexus and the community (member for about 1 year), but I try to soak up info everywhere (on my own pace of-course :wink: and I am just thinking loudly here,

 

Would spammers (the human ones) use a permission request function for spamming?

 

I guess the answer is: if the function is there they will use it.

 

From my naive understanding (based on what authors have said in podcasts/youtube etc.) the reason they ignore the inbox is that the content is '97%' of non-constructive feedback, "MAKE this or that for me!", repeating questions that have already been answered on the description page.

The more popular the mod is the worse it gets. I do not know about bots and unwanted marketing type spam.

 

It may go against Nexus's philosophy, but maybe such a function should be available for premium members only :smile:

Capture the original permissions from the authors mod page and preserve it for future proof that you did indeed have permission at the point that you released your mod.

Or find where the author stated the permission for a mod like I did here.
