Hello everyone,

 

I hope that you are doing fine and that you may help me on a matter.

I'm working on a Raider overhaul and I wanted to ask permission to a mod author, for using some of his/her armors. The mod author being mrsasa789, and the assets being part of the "Parasite Armor Pack".

However, I've been unable to reach the mod author, as his profile says that he/she has been banned from the nexus.

 

What can I do in this situation ? What's the situation about authorizations in such situations ?

 

 

Happy modding everyone.

You can't use anything without the creators permission, that applies to banned creators as well. Have a look in their files to see if there is a contact email address or something.

Okay, that sounds reasonable and I just wanted to make sure.

 

Thanks a lot for the fast reply!

You may also want to do a google search for that username, or at least the part before the numbers, just on the off-chance that he/she used the same username on Facebook or some other mod site.

 

But I definitely wouldn't use the assets in your own mod unless you can prove that you have permission via screenshot or email or something. If you're caught using stuff without permission, it'll probably get your mod removed - that happened with one of mine, but fortunately I had screenshots to prove the author's permission. Repeated cases of it would probably get your whole account banned, so it's just not worth it.
