What does modder A stand to lose from that ?"If you have no clear answer to that, then I have no idea what we're talking about except modders' ego (not saying it's your/your team case in particular).Max. You seem to be missing a basic overall situation here: No one is saying that all mods HAVE to be encrypted.If the tool was made available0, then those that wish to encrypt their work can do so, but at the same time those that don't wish to encrypt their work can do that too, so why bring up issues that have no relevance to Piboso releasing his encryption tool? What's the issue here?Seems to me that the only ones who don't like the idea of MOD work being encrypted by those the wish to do so are the ones who like the idea of being able to steal others work & information?On top of that, there is the very likely possibility that if there was an encryption tool available for modders work then the more professional modders would more likely provide their work happily to the GPBike community..... It's a win win situation, so I just cannot understand the objections and somewhat lame excuses being put forward for not releasing Piboso's encryption tool? What's the problem, really, apart from as I said that certain people want to be able to steal others hard work and information and take credit for it. You wouldn't like it if someone stole your work and took credit for it so why do you expect others to not give a damn? It's not about ego, it's about doing what's right and actually giving a damn about doing what's right, something that is obviously lacking in recent generations by the sound of it?

Quote from: HornetMaX on March 08, 2020, 08:45:43 pmIn which way would encryption make that easier ?Bit off-topic: I do like steam and I find it very handy, but the cut they take is borderline outrageous, especially for small developers. As a developer (or modder) I defintely wouldn't be happy about it.

Quote from: javiliyors on February 28, 2020, 11:40:09 pmThere is enough documentation to create mod, and yet there are people who are making mods and that have relied on other mods to create their own, in which I am included. I would not mind sharing documentation with other modders so that they create their mods, but use 3ds or other things, when all the work is yours, well fuck a lot. when you learn to do this it hurts to have your work stolen so that other people take the merits
