Asking for permission

hello all recently i found out alot of modders said that the people of GSC allow other modders to use their game models if it is for non-commerical projects (free, no money)

i was wondering if this is true> i need to find a proper statement or a screenshot to prove that it is true, otherwise what i am saying is just not right.

""According to Anton Bolshakov the project manager, on 2007-05-29, GSC grants users rights to modification and non-commercial use of the game content.
Users retain ownership of their contributed materials, but require GSC's permission for commercial use.
If GSC decides that it wants to publish a mod, it will negotiate royalties with the mod author.""


is this true?

this is quite urgent so i hope someone will reply please

If you use another modder's work you point that out and give them a mention in the mod documentation.

If you made a mod and want to sell it you need to talk to GSC - which would appear to be Sergei Grigorovich as GSC is no longer a going concern.

You could try asking Dezodor about it as I understand his team is amidst some similar discussion over Lost Alpha.

Since your making a mod for Mount & Blade, according to the thread I provided a link for, GSC doesn't mind you using their content as long as it is non commercial. However, if you want to use it in a mod for another game, you first have to get permission from someone involved in that game, and verify that it is OK to port assets into their game from another game.

tl;dr: As long as its non commercial, and Mount & Blade don't mind stuff from other games being ported in (or you get permission), you should be OK provided you provide a link to where its come from.

Moving my answer from the other copy of this thread here:

GSC is very permissive about the use of their assets for noncommercial purposes.

You can see their statement in the Modder's Rights thread in each of the mod discussion forum sections here. Direct link:

https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=20587&sec_id=16

Many of the original agreements come from my ICQ chats with the devs, but in that case I asked them to make a public statement.
