Asking permission to use someone else sprite artwork

Postby Boomer666 » Tue Jun 26, 2018 10:10 pm

Hi i'm new in this forum and i want to ask few questions regarding the rule of using someone else work.

So here is my problem, i like the weapon sprites set from Stronghold on Edge of Chaos from realm 667 like the shotgun, plasma rifle, rocket launcher, etc. (originally from Demon Eclipse) and i really want to use them for my own mod. Is it allowed? Of course the credit always goes to its creator which i believe Eriance/Amuscaria right?

Scalliano from Dooomworld forum told me if this the right forum to ask Eriance/Amuscari permission and i did this because i want to respect other people work for the sake peace of mind. 8-) 8-) 8-)

If Amuscaria is okay with it, then it is indeed allowed. He's pretty active on this forum so it's not like you can't ask. :) (He'll probably notice this topic before you do, though)

That is the idea. :) People in doomworld mentioned that Amuscaria is pretty liberal with other people using his work but still it will be the right thing to do to ask him first. :)

Now if only there is a more direct approach to contact him...

You can try sending him a PM. Here's a link: ucp.php?i=pm&mode=compose&u=677

Try now. Just by making that post (your third), you passed the threshold to graduate from a new user to a full user, so it should be enabled now.
