Westly's Heads
« on: September 23, 2015, 05:34:44 AM »
It's a bit late for asking (because I am already using it), but here is my request for Westly's Master Head Pack X. Are you OK with this?

I dunno IIRC but (probably) you need Westly's permission to use his heads.

Hmm, I seem to remember that he mentioned he is OK with this in his readme. Probably worth checking again.

MHP of his is actually designed like a resource.

Edit: Crap, it seems you're right. He says permissions are granted by request.
Edit2: His inbox is full. Great  :( These legalities are slowly killing me. I mean, seriously, is anyone who is at least a little sane is going to ever steal somebody else's work and present it like his own? That's nonsense. We know each other through and through here, and can easily identify original authorship. /rant

That's why I'm not using his heads for my NPCs.

Yep, Westly is a master, and his heads are beautiful, indeed. Why he doesn't want people to actually use them is beyond me. I mean, such great selection of playable heads, like in his MHP, is great to have. But there are SO many of them that you could make thousand of wonderful mods.

And permission on request almost equals plain denial for me. People often experience change of heart, don't want to play or communicate anymore, and thus become unreachable. In my situation, though he is currently around he still can't be contacted. Of course I just can't post a public request in the middle of some other thread with other subject - it will be utterly rude.

Anyway, I'll have to get over it, I know.

There are exceptions for a couple of his mods, but for the most part, Westly keeps most of his assets pretty close to the chest. Not sure of the reason, but for the most part, I just avoid using his stuff. (There are a couple exceptions that I used in Lyithdonea with permission).

He's supposed to be active on GHF again. Try contacting him there.

I'll try that, thank you. I'll ask for all of us.

Edit: Message has been sent.

Unlocking the thread because I've received the permission from Westly to use his heads. I've asked for all Modtown team, so you guys and gals can use them too.

Westly says that the reason why he asks people to get his permission first is because he is working on a new iteraion of MHPX and doesn't want the textures of lesser quality floating around. He says that if a person wants to use his faces in their mod, he wants to be sure that they (the textures used) meet his today's standards, and to be able to offer better textures, possibly making them unique for the mod in question.
