First of all I would like to issue an apology to modhub.us in my previous post I included them along the pirate mod hosters that do not care about the community or the content creators. The mod was initially uploaded by a Russian site (by it’s admin) and copied to several others.
On contact modhub removed the mod without quibble. I unfairly threw you in the mix with the ‘bad eggs’ so I apologise to you.
From here this post is lengthy, sorry not sorry. I do ask you take the time to read it though as it should answer any questions you might have.
Over the past 6 or so months I have been toying with the idea of retiring from public modding.
Update: The mod has been relisted as of 9am December 5th and will stay on the Workshop.
Also I would like to apologise to modhub.us, on contact you have removed the mod immediately from your site. I unfairly assumed you were just another pirate mod hosting site. Your actions say otherwise.
As you maybe aware the Owned Trailer mod has been removed from Steam Workshop. This is not an accident.
Illegally hosting my mod in direct violation of the license agreement, the mod is no longer available to the public. What you have to remember is I make mods for myself, I release them to the community if interest is shown, however I will not support pirates.
Just so you know, this mod will stay as “friends only” so the few friends on my Steam friends list can still use it.
For those of you who use Steam Workshop mods, what would you rather a mod author do?
Would you rather they add new parts to an existing pack and rename the mod to better suit the new parts, or would rather they upload it as a new mod (including the old parts) and let the original mod expire and eventually delete it?
For reference sake: I am planning on adding some general accessory parts to my existing Bullbars with Oversized Banner mod for ATS and wondering what the majority think for how I should combine the parts on Workshop.
Dance demons, don't you know. This is a modding, modding tango.
