Hey , I think I choose the most weird titles for my threads .
Anyway I have couple of questions that would require multiple threads and I wasn't sure if I could ask about modeling in the modeling sub forum. Is that just for release and share? or is it also for requests and support?
1- I plan to use custom models since I have a custom story going on and I've several sources that I can get 3D models from for free.
But I'm not sure about their licenses , alot of models out there are the ripped ones , models that are ripped from other games .
I know that having a private server is just as illegal but I feel that risk of getting sued over using some other game's models is far greater.
So I was wondering what are your thoughts on this matter? Cause I'm interested in some models that are from fairly new games .
for example dead space 3 , duke nukem , darksiders II and so on.
2- Tell me what do u think about this? cause I've seen this below some model files :
Does a private server with customized patches goes into Game mods ? and what does it mean for Educational purposes?
3- I understand that this question might belong to somewhere else but I want to ask it all in one place , What is the format of video looping at login screen? I want to have a custom login page but I don't know what format I can use , or if I can actually use my own material at all?
4-Is it possible to add custom voices to the server as well? either for npc or a music for area-theme . Would copy-right law apply to them?
