Hi Iceman77, let me quickly narrow things down for you..
As Max Powers said, perhaps you could read the thread you hope to contribute to or debate.
If you read the thread carefully, you will find out three facts:
1) My island is the only island on the server.
2) Dayz Mod with a new UI is the only mod on the server.
3) People have to pay to get access to the server the server.
Answer: Absolutely basic money making scheme/people are paying specifically to play on my island and DayZ mod.
If you visit the site http://www.vilayer.com/ you will find out three facts:
1) It is a server hosting company, not a clan.
2) A server can be purchased with Taviana bundled in to the package.
3) People purchase servers/or server slots there.
Answer: By bundling Taviana in to the package they are using it as a fee tool to gain more customers, by having it pre-installed.
Because of what [FRL]Myke said, and also because Iâ€™ve had a donate button on my website for 3 years and basically didnâ€™t get jack â€¦. :smile:
You donâ€™t need to see anything at all about editing someone elseâ€™s work; the fact is that addon makers are producing free content for you and they decide how their content will be used, not you or anyone else regardless of your opinion. If you want someone to edit addons make addons yourself and you will be able to decide what you do with them.
I donâ€™t allow this, reason being - I donâ€™t what 50 different versions of my island out there, modified to a point where it doesnâ€™t even have the basic feel that I intended it to have.
Yep, and my proof against their legitimacy would be that they didnâ€™t reply to my PM. By starting a thread and them deleting it after 5 minutes without leaving a reply or PM for me I have proved their unwillingness cooperate.
And I am not upset by the way, the reason why I started this thread is to make this issue known and sorted out, because I am not the only one that is having problems with this, and because Iâ€™m trying to help the community and BIS. Remember that when most addon makers leave us, this forum will be empty as well as the servers, and you will most likely be gone too with your opinion about editing other peoples work.
By having to pay for a server on which this addon is present (modified version to be precise), you are paying for access to the addon, and the addon is being used a marketing tool too.
Thank you for your attention,
