You might think of cromcrom as moronic, yet he actually delivered something in his life. I haven't seen any examples in any of your "how can I suck money from people and into my own pockets posts" of what you have achieved in your "career".
Yesterday I wrote an application to load an L3DT heightfile and generate a DOS terrain from it. L3DT being a paying application. I'm in contact with the author of that program cause a while back I had to write libraries to load his lisensed file types into memory data. He had no problem letting me open source that code. I worked about 3 weeks on that in my spare time, lets say about 3 hours a day so that would be 9 days of work at my wages 1020 € or around 1200 $. So according to you anyone should now pay me because I worked on something I enjoyed doing in my free time. Which means I should also pay taxes on it. That in turn means I would have to register myself as a self employed person, which costs money. Again this would mean I'm an official institution that has to formally agree with Larian that I will use their engine.
Then again if you want to bypass all the legal obligations, to make yourself rich and cheat your government out of revenue to help society, I guess that is your preogrative, just makes you a bad person to the community , but well that's fine now isn't it. The world needs more greedy persons that only look after themselfes not enough of them yet.
I'm really happy for you, that you are willing to do things for free in your life. Now let’s close that case.
Thanks for hinting that I'm a greedy person, actually I don't consider myself greedy as I only barely make a living as a freelance 3D artist, and the I spend the rest of my time doing thing I enjoy.
Maybe you should go talk about greed in CEO and Business forums.
On a side note I have contributed to real charities before, I've worked 3 months for a charity for free, I've worked in an animal shelter too.
Games and gamers are not worthy of charity though so sorry I don't feel I need to contribute free efforts here. Thanks.
I didn't know modding was a get rich quick scheme, and that everyone would be throwing money at my mod, I actually thought I'd barely make sales but anyway.
