PostSubject: Warning/heads up about WOW models.   Sat Mar 11, 2017 6:18 pm

So, lately my server has been getting speculated of stealing WOW models, it was my understanding that we where allowed to use them, however, i have contacted a game master from WOW and this is the conversation i had with them. In the end, I have decided to remove all wow models. This was only a "Let you know" Kind of post, i'm not trying to start any drama/fights.

Thank you for letting us know, Glacia!

I noticed that most of objects(such as trees etc) are from WoW too, you should delete not only prey, but this too.

I've seen a lot of servers use WoW, or at least WoW-looking, models be it for prey, objects, etc.

Yes, according to KITO it fit under ther legal faq where it said about a total conversion, however, this would've fit under writing screenplays music and etc, to wich the answer to that faq is different.

stealing models from another game is bad. in other news, water is wet. hence why I've been trying to phase out all the stolen WoW models an ex-staff member snuck into DoE (which I am still annoyed about)

Yes, however we didn't know we where stealing them. Under their FAQ there is a question that asks:
"Can I do a total conversion of your games?" in witch it states that you can, and this is where Kito and myself thought that using the models had fit, however it doesn't fit under there it really fits under the FAQ: "Can I get authorization to do an expansion pack, novel, screenplay, theatrical production, or other adaptation based on your games?"

the source to their FAQ is here: http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/about/legal-faq.html

yes, but it also says you can only use it for personal use. I guess I can kinda see how that can be misconstrued, but the moment you make the game public for anyone to download, it's no longer a private project.

A lot of other servers (including FH) were also using WOW content, it wasn't just us over at Canis Lupus. Users were mislead with false information and Glacia got down to the bottom of it. I appreciate all her work inside and outside of Canis Lupus .

considering redeye gave out a converter for WoW meshes, it's not like people automatically knew it was wrong. you can't blame people for taking what's given out. thanks for speaking with somebody glacia, i'm sure that answers a lot of the questions surrounding sly's post
