It is over
Because of disrespectfull actions of people, who think if mods are free to use, they are free to share anywhere in public and free to modify and share in public without taking care about my licence. I decide to not share my mods in public anymore.
All I ever want to do was to give back something I created myself, for all the mods I use, wich are created by others. Because this is, in my understanding, how the modding community work.
Everything I ever asked for was to contact me if someone want to do something with my work (share it somewhere else, convert it, whatever).
Fact is I was asked for my permission to reupload my demonica mods 3 times....but found them much more times uploaded somewhere else. And "language barrier" is allways just an excuse, sure it is hard to communicate via machine translation, but it is possible.
The most common reason why such people don't care about the author and his licence is because they have no idea how much time it takes to make those mods, just because they never create a mod on their own.
And those people who think that I just convert models form a 3d rendering software over to skyrim. I've never done that, in all my mods I used models form TES mods. I allways took great care with my credit list for full transparence. Everything else was created form sketch.
So some of you now will say:
"What is your problem? You share the mods for free, why do you care about where people get your mods? The main goal is that they are poplular."
If it was about fame why should I create mods for one of the less popular race/body mods? I mean if it were really for fame I would took the most popular body mod and create stuff for that.
Every time I find a mod that I create uploaded somewhere else, I get angry. Not because they are uploaded there. Just because people have all the time to copy and paste the description and upload it, but not the time to send me a message with this simple line:
"Can I upload your mod at *insert webpage here*?"
No need to say something nice about my mod, I'm swabian, if nobody gripe about, it's enough commendation for me. Just show respect for the work I did and pay attention of the Licence of my mods.
And because of this I'm not willing to share anything anymore. Congrats you rude thiefs, you can tell the same story like the Skyrim Guards now, with the difference that you shoot the arrow yourself.
Everything in that outfit was created with the pics of Tasha's Civilisation Online Cosplay, Blender, Gimp and several hours of my freetime. You will not find this models on any side for 3d rendering software models, because I've done everything by myself.
I can live with it when people hate me for seeing pics of mods they never get, because it is only bad for their health. Not good for my health is if I get angry because someone steal my mod. (Yes free mods can be stolen when there is a Licence for it's usage, free-to-use is not open source)
As result of all that my Skyrim mods are private now , for people I know and trust only.
I'm sorry for all you guys who treat me with respect. Thanks for your gratefull comments, likes and feedback in all these years. I hope you can understand why I made this decision, which wasn't an easy one.
