i downloaded the niagara class for A1 from AFC, http://www.armadafleetcommand.com/afc/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=search&query=niagara%20class it came with a build button but no ODF, i have just made an ODF (my first to actually work!0 and then i made asn admirals log picture. then i realised that maybe people would like a niagara class for A2 so i decided that i would have a go at making it into a mod that people could download, i then went onto AFC to find the person who made it, jardragon901, i could not find any details of them or any way to contact them. what should i do? i do not want to upset them if they are still in the modding community and i would put there name and credit into the readme but i know that some modders sometimes dont like their work to be altered. any suggestions are welcome and if jardragon901 is a member of gaming forums could he PM me with his e mail so i can contact him further thankyou for your time Hardyous:type:

Its a touchy subject of modding other people's mods. I could care less if any one uses my stuff and revamps them. I encourage it in fact. Many folks are starstruck with seeing their screen name on a sight connected with their mod. If the person who built the thing in the 1st place didn't put his email address or its no longer valid what can one do? If you want to do it best thing is to credit that person in your readme file. I've found many downloads with missing files too. It's all a bunch of free stuff being distributed at will really. If the ship is a couple years old the guy who did it is probably out of Armada anyhow and driving a truck or something these days.
so you think that it is ok for me to release it as a complete mod and credit him for the button (whitch i need some help with as it needs to work) and wireframe, sod and texture and myself for the ODF and admirals log pic, i just dont want to have some one shouting at me because they think i have playgureised or something. it was an A1 model so i think that the guy must have stopped modding, the file had no Readme so i didnt really know what to do. so once i am sure that it is ok then a Niagara class for A2 will be my first mod, on armada2files!
