I don't want to sound at all whiney here, but this is going to sound pretty whiney all the same. I went to alot of pains to make sure that I credited anybody who's work directly affected the mod I posted to Stalkerfiles. But somewhere along the way of me crediting Niphty for his tutorial, anybody who's read the X46 Advanced Battlearmor Suit comes away thinking that this was his posted mod. I've seen several mods now posted that use "Niphty's X46 suit". Niphty did NOT make an "X-46" of any kind. He made a tutorial that i followed to the letter to make the base armor, but then integrated Balnazzar's Trader mod to implement it since the code from the tutorial wasn't working right in the default files for me. I then had to repeatedly test and retest changes and fixes until it worked right and even released an updated version with everything fixed in it.

All this whining boils down to a simple request. If your going to use the "X46 Advanced Battlearmor Suit" in your mod, please don't forget about me who actually took Niphty's tutorial and got a working version of it tested and posted for download. So while I'm grateful that everybody is following my request to credit Niphty, don't forget little ol' me too, please :D

LOL. This happens quite often. I'm usually too busy to make full on mods, but I can take apart a system pretty well, so I figure if it helps others to make better mods, then a basic tutorial improves the community =D Though this is one of the first I fully wrote up and posted, rather than just giving to a couple people who knew me and requested stuff :P

I honestly don't care about the second or third tier credit. After all, if someone likes your armor and looks it in depth, they'll find me in your credits ;) Not everyone looks at the top of the mountain! lol Regardless, I haven't made any mods, nor have I really claimed the items I posted (they're way too god-modded to be included in any serious mods). I do appreciate the credit, but please be sure to credit the -actual- maker of the item, rather than me just because I'm in the credits ;) Since these definitely take time to fine tune and make viable for the actual game you should make sure you give credit due =D

Big thank you goes out to Roman Glebenkov for the mention in his Anti-Radiation jacket. And another thank you to 174@2ch for his mention in his Jin-Roh mod. Both mods do me proud, and I'm sure Niphty feels a bit of pride too, knowing it's his tutorials that spawned all this modding :D

I single-handedly created S.T.A.L.K.E.R using only my own hands and a copy of Excel.

And yet I've never been credited... I feel cheated and violated.

That makes no sense. You imply that you used a single hand, but directly thereafter you contradict yourself by saying you used both your hands.

Liar. ( T_T)

@moshpit: I downloaded your X46 Battlesuit, and I think why everyone's mixed up about the creator is due to you naming the item (in unique_items.ltx) as "outfit_niphty_m1", which might've been (one of) the cause(s) of the confusion.

Twas one hand at a time: the other was too busy making every other game since S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s announcement.

But he still said that he used both hands, therefore contradicting himself.

And besides, doesn't Excel have feelings too?

Hence the reason I made sure to mention having used said tutorial. The readme tho was clearly made to keep that confusion to a minimum. And even being made so, it failed to do so. But the confusion seems fixed now, I've seen two mods since then that properly assigned credit where it's due.
