It is my project.

<snip>

The real people just trying to "make a buck" are the "Charity Trolls" on Nexus mods who harass me for having a donation button, while they try to force me into some form of back door licensing just because some of their was included. Another reason why I am stripping out almost everyone else's stuff.
Well... it isn't your project until you remove the work of others. Until that time it is your work in combination with the work of others.

Sorry to be that asshole, but those "Charity Trolls" are in their right to do that. It is why copyright exists, to protect the author's work.

It might be a good idea to put your project on hold or take down any links until you've finished stripping their work.

It would also be great if you stated on your KS (and other) pages that you are working on this and not in association with the OpenMW team.

Feel free to piggy-back off my work. I've already done a lot of foot-work getting the authors to release their work under a CC license. If you see their name in the README, then that is their consent.

https://github.com/OpenMW/UIX-R

The assets are found on the release tab.
You may have been replying to the other guy, but you've just saved me quite a bit of time too as I've been doing something similar, thanks!

Cheers! :)

That's why I did it.

If you want, you can contribute... if you get more permissions, we can add those too if they exist in UIX:R.

Otherwise we can collaborate in create a larger CC licensed repo.

Until now I've just been asking people if I can use their stuff in my project, from now on I'll ask if they'd also want their mods to be under that CC license and provide a link to it. I'll pm you if I get any takers!

It's exactly what I did.
