Well, we banned Iloo because of this, though we warned him multiple times and he came back several times with more accounts to circumvent the ban. After a week or two of silence from him we wondered what he was up to, then Apollo discovered through a Turkish Hamachi site that the guy was ripping RS 1.99 to make his new RS "1.99.5" update mod, releasing modified rules.ini and artmd.ini files as well as a link to our original 1.99. His garbled words on making this was:
"1.99 Released Sorry All Robot Storm Players Workİng A 1.99.5 Uptadet To 1.99"
Want to know what he did? Well, watch and laugh, we couldn't believe it either.
Behold, the FL Nexus wraith frigate?
"New" terrain! And Soviet Conscripts!
Brand new Armageddon tank!
Continuing on we see some Robot Storm promotion pictures we did, and some requests for 3D SHP artists and so on.. he calls it "Robot Storm 2.0 Beta Opened!" I know for a fact we have no 2.0 beta stuff or anything at this time, so what is he doing.. is he trying to claim he's making RS?
"New Zephry Drone And Drenaguath Tank" which is actually a public resource Pelican and MMK3 voxel.
PR LKO Mech Bay and some.. sorta.. AL barracks? Another screenshot has him ripping Chinese lab public resources.
Either way, Iloo is getting blacklisted for releasing his "upgraded RS mod". Ash had an FAQ reply to someone who did the same thing, and the same answer still stands:
"Do you honestly believe Apollo spent the last three years making this mod so some n00b shmuck could come along, put his grubby paws and stolen assets all over it and say "here's a better version"? Seriously, I dunno about Apollo, but I'd consider that pretty insulting. If you absolutely must, edit it privately but don't dare to publicise it."
Putting two and two together we were curious why he wants 2.0 released so badly, as well as Reign of Steel. Needless to say this will just increase our awareness when we finish RS 2.0 so no assets can be ripped and then stuck together with more public resource stuff in a mangled way.
