|NOTES FOR ADDON MAKERS
You all could noticed that I used most of your
work, in the various pack I had the pretention to write I made.
I always tried to put your credits, the name of the maker, or at
less the name of the original addon's it was based on. It is the
way I started making addons : by understanding what and how peoples
are mading addon and trying to do the same things. I don't intend
to make something better, neither to have my name known by the community
or to boost my poor lycos hosted site. I first made things to suit
my needs when I was playing OFP. But as times passed by, I took
some pleasure of it, found I could also share the modifications
I made with others ; and OFP-D was born.
In the packs, I sometime just changed the flag
texture and crew of other's original addon. I claim it is not copying
or stealing addons and I want you to agree of it too. A contrario,
it's a way to make the great work of talented addons maker a standard
and a reference, and considering it equal to the original BIS model.
It is also giving another life to these models. (ie transforming
Soviet ones into NVA or North-Korean one)
I never put my name or tag like that in the
addon "ingame" name or in the PBO name, just the model
names. Also because I don't fell great when your officer in game
told you he spot a "[@adel]\\ad**3##]PFORL soldier at 12o'clock
". I always tried to put the credit ether on the OFP-D site
next to the download link, or on the readme inside the pack. I hope
this is allright with you. I presume that as long I as don't claim
to be the maker of YOUR job (and now I know the time it takes to
make a working addons), you are ok to let me change the crew, ingame
name, and some small changes.
If not, don't be nervous, contact
me ASAP and
we'll find a way to make everything OK, before preventive strikes.
