    Come on Novator! Just go back to making leaderheads man, I'm a much different person outside of this website than I am here too, but I don't bring it upon these people because they didn't sign up for that. This is a site about Civilization, a computer game, let's keep it that way.

    This is good advice. Hopefully Novator agrees...

    Ah c'mon... your LH's are great and you made great a contribution to the forums with them all... would be a shame to ruin that now, right? ;)

    If somebody remakes them, he will be great too, isn't it?

    He probably loss is work or tools, or part of it, and that is tremendous loss for an artist.

    @Novator: I hope all is well with you and at home. I hope that the 'mafia' is not threatening you.

    ...c'mon, everybody knows that those who have just remade other people's LHs here with minimal changes and credited them as their own haven't exactly become wery popular by doing so... point is, if someone remakes your LHs and don't do a good job or simply make minor changes and take most of the credit themselves, then they won't be recogniced as great, which is kind of why some of the old LH makers and old timey CivIV CivFanatics members had a slight rage against some of the newer LH makers not that a while ago (not pointing any fingers)... thing is, you'r LHs are good, and they don't need to be remaked cause they serve their purpose perfectly already, so stop acting and realise that you were one of the great ones, and we'd really like to help you keep it that way ;)

    Yes, you certainly were/are. I don't like to toot my own horn, but I think that coming from me that is a great compliment.

    Couse I am bot and I'm OK with it... :3
    Don't flatter please. I am an ordinary lh maker. You already stopped your lh making. Why? Why I have to make something? There are 2-3 lh makers at this forum. Is that all? Silver age is over, guys. It's time to relax and watch...

    No, you aren't a bot. You're either a troll who is now 'having fun', or you are a proper idiot. Maybe both. Can't tell which one is worse... :rolleyes:

    Lazyness... I still left mine up though

    You don't have to, but deleting the work you have already uploaded is kind of mean to us on the forums...

    Absinthe got them all (he kind of new this was coming, so he backed them all up... all the ones he released at least)

    It's better not to upload lhs for users who don't have civilization. And It's good, that he understands it after that week. We all must keep the law.

    Some files, like animation, textures and other are original, because most of lh-makers can't change them. If the files are original, why are they available even for unregistered users? Also there are some original texture files like env, eyeshadow etc. Firaxis are owners of these unchanged original animation and textures.
    SOME TEXT FROM LICENSE AGREEMENT
    AND THIS

    Oh, I forget to notice, that you need written confirmation to upload these files, not just inaction of Firaxis.

    Yeah, typical. :rolleyes: Let's say then: you ARE right, this whole thing is illegal. But you forget a serious matter.

    Imagine someone with Mozart's talents who hears a song in the radio. He goes home, and plays the song down on his instrument (for instance, on a piano). He shows his play to others and everyone is fascinated, so he uploads it to YouTube. According to the United States laws about copyright, this act is illegal, since he hadn't bought the rights of the song he played. The rights of a song is usually the property of the musical composer and/or the distributor of the song. But even after months, and years, or decades, nobody even cares about the matter. You know why? Because the property owner (the composer) has no interest at all in suing someone who made his song even more popular, who put it further and made the song even more famous.

    Almost the same applies here: why the heck would Firaxis sue its greatest fansite for using the official graphics to make the franchise better for all? Especially if the game was DESIGNED to be modded, the developers had the intention to make it easy to edit. Of course, if Firaxis was so dumb to sue us (and if any judge would be so dumb to take this whole thing seriously), they'd definitely win, but it would be an utterly stupid act to do.

    I'm sorry but you are wrong and that is not what it means. All that means is, if Novator (or anybody else for that matter) created a leaderhead and tried to sell it Firaxis could sue them for the money because it is their property. Thus, anything created by us for Civilization is Firaxis' property. You are incorrectly interpreting this.

    If anything it is saying that Novator has no personal ownership of what he made, it is Firaxis that does.

    EDIT: Go ahead and shoot them an e-mail, they will tell you the exact same thing.
