  2. They uploaded it again about 4hrs ago so I just reported it on Steam (although I left out links because I wasn't thinking). Had I not caught up on threads here, first, I wouldn't have known it was stolen.
     
  3. Good thing they are all banned now......... (I Think)
     
  4. Mod theft isn't a new idea.

    The only way to combat it is to use only one venue for your uploads, develop a following that knows your mods and style and nurture a relationship with users that propagates a positive influence toward modding.

    Another piece of shit stole a mod without even porting it properly - this time some genius known as ツ A.N.G ツ released a broken version of shitface's Vehicle First Person Camera Mod (original, stolen, playground). Will they ever at least try it out before mindlessly uploading to Workshop?
