To give out Halo models for free? I'm planning on giving out some of my rigged halo models for free so people can try them out, but I need to know if its legal or not. Thanks in advance.
As far as I know, you can do with your own work anything you want as long as you don't make any profit off of it and give proper credits to the company who made the game (if you intend to release it in public). As far as I'm aware, this rule applies for all games, so it should apply here too. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
If it is a model you have created from the original Halo model, then that is perfectly legal. People do it all the time. I.E. the downloads on FF & Halomaps. But be sure to include a .txt document with the file that states the rights the user has to the file. Like to redistribute freely, or requiring them to ask your permission before re-use, stuff like that.If you modified a model someone else made originally (besides Bungie) (and you cannot find a .txt you downloaded it with), you need to get into contact with that person.
Actually, if you've used proprietary assets (such as editing a pre-existing model, or frankensteining), it's technically not considered "your" model.
If you want stuff you can do whatever you want with, the best (and pretty much only) way to make sure no one can bugger you around is to just create your assets from scratch. Otherwise, even if you cross all the I's and dot all the T's, there's always the ominously looming chance that someone can pull the ol' red tape over your eyes, and I think we can all agree that it really sucks when that happens.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
