First let it be clear that the news post I recently posted about the background debate was not meant to sound like a witch hunt. Nor was it my intention to smear Aliah or anyone else. Though she is no longer part of the team, Aliah was a great coder and a great friend while working on HHF. I am saddened everything has turned out the way it has and it has ultimately soured our friendship.
Aliah was working on the pretense that she had necessary permissions to use everything we have in our mod. She has PMs dating back to when she first started saying we have the go ahead from B5, BSG, and had a PM from eviljedi giving her permission to use his fx. This was misconstrued as permission to use any of evil's assets, and Aliah mistook a map background for SSC as one of evil's creations (In reality, he made the map, but not the background)
It was not a matter of stealing or thieving, but misinterpretation and misunderstanding. Aliah is no more at fault than Velo or I in this matter, and this deserves to be known. The last couple of weeks have been rough on all of us and the French-English barrier has been a problem throughout.
I hope Aliah can forgive me for condemning her on the mod scene, as it was not my intention at all, and I sincerely hope our fans and followers can forgive her and myself for painting the wrong picture in this mess.
