locked 3d Kitbashing Showcasing


Will Kesler
 

Am I allowed to showcase some of the Southern things I’ve been working on in a 3d game called Trainz? I don’t know if the term Kitbashing is also used in actual modeling but I think it might be, it’s also used for this game when you take parts from other engines and change them around to basically online model your desired engine. Just making sure if I can show that here.

Actually now that I think about it this should probably go into the modeling group as it is a form of modeling.

Kit-bashing is when some BUYS several models and uses those parts he/she bought to build something else for THEIR private use.
To "borrow code" to build a new set of code without giving credit plus trying to resell would be piracy and stealing intellectual property (unless it is not shared in any manner for others to utilize.
Example: if someone were to take someone else's sound file (without permission or credit) modify it  and try to resell it as a new product.
As for kit-bashing ... I learned from a pack of rivet counters who never even shared parts with each other.

As an attorney taught when I was about twelve years old, "If you are not sure whether you should do something; don't do it."

No that’s not what I meant I’m not doing anything illegal. I just wanted to know if I could show pictures of stuff I’ve worked on in a game called Trainz that involves southern engines. But I should probably do that in the modeling group.

In the game Kitbashing is using different model parts to make an engine basically exactly like how you with a real model.
