The offical response for porting contents from one game or mod into your mod.

Posted by on - Basic Starting a mod

Nowdays most game developers have allowed for modders, to use some contents from their games (models and textures mostly) as long as any usage is non-commercial, non-profit and doesn't have a negative effect on their product or company.

Here on this link, you can find developers who have allowed it.

Click on the developer name in order to read the offical response. Those who are not on the list are a NO, NO.

GAMEBANNA LINK

WHEN COMES TO USING/PORITING FROM ANY MOD INTO YOUR MOD. THEN YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO ASK ORIGINAL MOD MAKER FOR A PERMISSION TO USE THEIR CONTENTS. IF THEY SAY NO, THEN YOU ARE TO OBEY AND RESPECT THEIR DESICION.

Guys please take note of that very important notice. This goes to all BF2 modders, especially the newer generation.

Yeah, newer generation is kinda degraded and leading bf2 modding to it's downfall. I wish we could see more unique content.

Since EA-Dice and Activision are not on the list, I don't think they would allow any porting from their games.

Plus modding is about making a new stuff, not stealing someone else's work.

Yes, I couldn't agree more with you. I can remember the good old times where all the mods were based on user-made content. Mods like AIX, PoE, Combat mod, and the list goes on...

What do we have now? A mess, to put it simple... No more originality, people porting everything with zero regards to the actual owners of the content, nor to the 'Terms of Use' of this website. Only a handful of mods are following the rules nowadays, which is really sad.

I guess we all just have to accept the fact that BF2 modding is on the verge of being completely dead. It is sad, but it's the truth. :(

What is it with you and how dead the community are? This community is very much alive and there is still a lot of modders around here and on other sites. So please stop being pessimistic about this community. As long as there are modders and new mods coming up every now and then, the community are and will still be alive.

now:
"This community is very much alive and there is still a lot of modders around here and on other sites."

*facepalm*

and you should stop playing bf2-community police and stay on your project and leave other projects alone. the community doesnt need 19 year old fanboys who plays some kind of community-police and if there is a problem with a mod, then let the moddb staff do theyr job, its not your job and care about your own.

It's funny how you took my comment as overly offensive when I in reality only gave the facts to you. So to be blunt here, please drop this totally unecassary hostile attitude of yours, because in the end it makes you look very immature.

Now to get on topic, my first comment that you quoted was posted almost a half a year ago. Things have changed since then and many mods have surfaced, and many of those port mods also died out which is surely something that can be considered a step in the right direction. Another point I want to point out is that this game is already 10 years old and still people cling on to it even though official support has been stopped. If this game were in the process of dying, it would have died entirely already. I'm not saying the game is very much alive either, it is just silly in my honest opinion to say that it is ''dead''.

As for the rest of your comment, my reasons for being the community-police is because the staff aren't doing anything about it. This is just my attempt to preserve bf2 a little longer. Lastly, I'm not 19 years old and I'm also not a fanboy. I am just someone that loves bf2 and I'm surely not the only one.

Thank you very much!
Now hopefully we will not see so many mods using content from other mods.

I doubt this will help. Those "porters" as I call them, will turn a blind eye and go forward to mess the BF2 modding community up. That is just how it is. Nothing that we can do about it.

How about admins? It is illegal to port from games like Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Crysis 3 and so on.

It is illeagal to port stuff from bf3, bf4 and hardline as they are made by DICE, Crysis series was done by Crytek who are on that porting whitelist

I don't think that is allowed to have Crysis stuff in Battlefield 2 because Far Cry 2010 have some stuff from Crysis 1 and Didjay have to delete that stuff and redone it in his mod because of that. Crysis 1 is a game which is published by EA and they denied Didjay request for some things which have been in the mod.
