What are the “rules” of using other people’s stuff, for example, to use in a game mode? Last I heard, weapons, maps, and models (etc) are all property of Garry’s Mod, AKA part of the “community”, and therefore can be used by anyone so long as it’s not edited or something. On the same level, it’s common sense to secure permission to use things that are not yours. In some cases, it can be a violation of copyright law. I intend to always get permission to use things such as for my new coming game mode, but there are some content creators that never respond or are now inactive. If I was to rip the workshop, and add their models to my gamemode with full credits and a link to the workshop, would I technically be doing anything wrong?
Just a generalized question… I can’t find copyrights or any details on this at all, so I would assume it all becomes “community” property in the sense of sharing/distributing.
I personally would only do such in the case a content creator is unreachable or inactive.
