Cease and desist order from CCP. All files are being removed from this page.

Hey guys,

Unfortunately I have bad news... CCP has issued a 'Cease and desist'.

To quote CCP Falcon; "...the company needs to protect the EVE IP, and we can't let crossovers into other games occur without licensing."

"...the company is trying to cover its back in terms of copyright infringement, so we need to ask that stuff is taken down and work stops on the mods."

The originator of this mod had 'the nod' from CCP some years ago, however;

"Yeah, unfortunately times change sadly."

So that's all from us, feel free to share your thoughts on Reddit.

Over and out.

Because eve mods are a time consuming process, and with the introduction of the PBR texture system from the Rhea Expansion. This in turn completely ****** up the modding community for eve mods, as well as the consent changing of file structures which makes gaining access to the files and models harder. This in turn makes modders have to make new tools to access these which can be stopped again at any moment by CCP.

I have a disc version back from Tyrannis I used to give a copy of (files) to mod makers so they could have the old type of textures, but obviously the models and stuff would be quite outdated.

I just want more EVE stuff, I like their ship design :(

no need i spent lots of early morning making a blender plugin to create and bake diffuse textures from the PBR textures, but yeah that was a waste of time :(

Ask them for permission again. This game is obscure as hell, and if you aren't trying to make a profit, there shouldn't be a problem.

Actually the main problem is copyright law, you have to be incredibly aggressive in defending it our you're simply ******. That's the sad reality.

That's stupid, this is non-profit and all it does is gives EVE more recognition. I guess that's what happens when CCP decides to lay off its entire ******* community team.
