There’s always a possibility of course that all of that hard work you’ve been working on for months gets trashed because of WB’s copyright shite. It was so sad to see all the MERP stuff get trashed, I’d say it’s a pretty big risk right now to do a LOTR mod, especially with the Hobbit marketing in full push right now. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Warhammer mod get shut down though.
I’d also really like a Star Wars mod, the game fits perfectly for some good old lightsaber duels. But Star Wars is in the same predicament as LOTR is right now. Disney will probably not want any other Star Wars “products” (or a Chiv SW mod in this instance) on the market to cause confusion around the upcoming movies. So chances are pretty high it might get shut down by Disney. I’m not saying that I don’t want to see any of these mods, just that it would be super sad to see months of work get wasted.
So far Bushido: Feudal Warfare seems to be the first legit mod to come out, and I’m super excited for that.
Lol what is MERP? I’m surprised a mod would get cease and desist when there is no profit coming out of it (directly I guess) when the 3d asset market is riddled with direct copyright infringement for things like 10$ coca cola cans which have been up for years.
