Quote from: Vini on March 02, 2020, 04:40:57 pmto add another point, it is quite difficult to give good feedback when you have no idea what was changed in the bike.
if you are going purely by feel then there will be tons of misunderstandings between modders and players/testers.

I totally agree that copying without crediting is bad practice, but I still don't get what the authors of encrypted mods would gain from that.
I mean: modder B rips from modder A. What does modder A stand to lose from that ?
If mods were sold for real money then OK something should be done (note this would go much further than simple encryption) but as this is not the case today, what's the problem for modder A ? Where's the damage for him or for the community ?
I have the impression that the whole discussion boils down to: "if modder B rips from modder A without crediting, modder A gets angry for ePeen reasons" (translated: because modder B is somehow claiming to be as good or better than modder A). I think it's futile: with unencrypted mods, anynbody can see who has ripped from who. Just post on the fourm something like "Hi modder B, this is modder A. Thanks for ripping our mod without permission and without crediting us.". Just shame them.
I feel your missing the point Max......
If your amateur modder wants to continue to mod without encryption then fine, let them if Piboso wants to continue to allow that, it's fine. BUT.... I personally think that if you want to have the more professional modders come-in and donate work to Piboso's projects then Piboso needs to supply an Encryption tool for, shall we say, the more professionally minded "Modders" who put in hundreds of hours of work on their projects often out of shear passion alone to provide products for these games/sims. Plus the fact that if your of a professional mind then you have to protect the IP of any material used from being ripped off by those unscrupulous people who are inclined to do so.......
The simple fact is that when modders rip-off the work of others then it gives all modders a bad reputation, and indeed it also gives the developer of the product they are modding for a bad reputation too.... At least if the dev supplies an encryption tool they are kind of mitigating that responsibility soley onto the modders.
Personally if I was Piboso I would operate the modding the same as Eagle Dynamics do for DCS World..... There is nothing worse for a game than to have free for all modding where you always get so many crap mods for the game it actually starts to hurt the main products image/reputation and subsequent sales too.
So no.... If your of the more "Pro" minded modder then it's not got anything to do with ego's and the attitude your putting forward as the reason we want an encryption tool.... It's about being and acting in a professional manner and pro-promoting that as the way to be. It really should be something that all developers who promote modding should adhere to in an attempt to not only stop unscrupulous modding practices but to make those bad practices a scourge on the modding community. While people/devs continue to support the free for all model of modding then modding will always be a contentious issue, especially for those that want to see modding develop into a genuinely respected supplement to developers base products..... Good modders can in actual fact greatly increase sales of a devs base product if the dev operates the modding in a professional manner.... I'd say at this time, Piboso is "Old School" and is therefore not promoting a professional modding community but rather promoting an unscrupulous modding community..... People eventually reap what they sow, right?
Just my opinion guys...
Quote from: Hawk on February 29, 2020, 12:04:02 pmThere is no reason an example non-encrypted MODBike cannot be used to help those that wish to start modding, that would solve arguments that people want non-encrypted bike files to be able to learn modding. Simple solution really guys.....
Piboso could easily police this if he wanted to the same way "Eagle Dynamics" police DCS World. Modders have to be registered with Eagle Dynamics; to do that you have to prove you have the ability to create mods to their standards(Not hard to do), only then will you become a registered supplier of mods for DCS World and only those modders can get a mod released for DCS World. Modding doesn't have to be a free for all. Free for all just gets you loads of amateur would-be mods that are well below standard quality which in itself hurts the main product.
Then on top of that is the problem that many pro-quality mods could very well want to use material that has intellectual property rights and conditions for using them in the modders work which would prevent using those files if they were not encrypted.
So guys, it's a case of do we want mods that are very good(pro) standard, or do we want to continue to have mods that are a free for all, which as we've seen, attracts unscrupulous modders who tend to steal the hard work of others?
All I'm saying is that an encryption tool should be made available for modders who feel they need it for their work so it's not stolen or bastardised in the future....
If Piboso would like to continue allowing open modding then I'm fine with that too, but just provide an encryption tool for those modders that want to have use of it, that's all I'm saying here really guys!
@DD: No need to worry about the paint files mate..... The modder can create a paint-kit in whatever format you require.
Just a query DD: Why do you have to have the paint file format in .TGA? Surely .PSD layered files are so much better and easier to paint with, and you don't have to have PS to use them, there is GIMP(the Photoshop clone) that can use .PSD files and it's free as I'm sure you know?
Quote from: Tosteetos on February 28, 2020, 10:57:07 pmI do not believe the reason why there isn't more modders is the fact that the mods are not encrypted.
I wouldn't see a problem to this if there was full documentation as to how to create a decent mod I would be all for that. But being the fact that people learn to mod also by what other people have made I don't see how this can benefit the community.
I am not a modder, but I can see how this can monopolize mod creating to just a few modders.
I am not for this idea. Unless there is a comprehensive guide from Piboso. Otherwise say goodbye to what is left of this community if mods get encrypted.
Quote from: Vini on February 27, 2020, 07:50:46 pmevery (half-decent) mod has some copied elements atm.
this would not attract anyone because GPB is simple too niche it would just kill the game for good.
