Hi, im looking for help in the upcoming mod "Vampyre- The Coming". This mod will be set in the real world, so I will need help creating maps and real world guns etc. Basically the idea is you will have the choice of a player class. First of all im starting off with vampyre and human, but maybe later on add werewolf, mage and daemon, if its successful enough. If you fell you can offer ANYTHING, even if its just ideas, head over to http://vampyremod.proboards20.com/index.cgi or e-mail me at [email="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/email] (also my msn name).
[color=mediumturquoise]Just my two cents here, and I know it wasn't asked for..but this is the impression I get from this mod: [/color][color=blue]I can see wanting to add a vampire and a human, but if you go further and add a werewolf, mage, and daemon, you're crossing copyright protections, and actually you would be if you gave the vampires powers, WhiteWolf is *extremely* strict about these things, they get wind of this and they'll sue you before you can turn around. Look at what they did to the people who produced Underworld, might wanna reconsider this and find a different approach, because like I said, WhiteWolf is extremely strict and extremely nasty when they believe their copyrights have been violated[/color]
I didn't make it!
But a non-profit mod is far easy to get around copyright with.
And besides that...you cannot copyright the old stories of vampyres, werewolves and so on; just to protect it, don't call it Vampyre- The Coming and there is really very little they can do unless you try and make money from it.
Well, this mod will have nothing to do with the vampire- the masquerade, its just a mod based on old myths and legends. Im starting with the vampire as it would be the most popular. If white wolf could sue me, would the creators of buffy come after me? PS I think white wolf should have been sued anyway, calling a clan 'nosferatu' and copying EXACTLY what he was like in Murnau's creation is a bit of copying dont you think :P
