PPS: There was some trouble with uploading the mod, but all should be well now.
WANT TO DO A FAVOR FOR GAUNTLET?
Also for those of you who care, someone has unfortunately uploaded GRM content to Steam. This was of course inevitable, but I'd like to point out, that GRM explicitly states that you should not upload its content to steam.
For a few reasons... primarily because originally StarDock led me to believe that they would be offering Steam based mod support. They have never followed through on this (no biggie, stuff happens). I had hoped that with the fleet editor, I could at least upload shipsets to Steam. However, the fleet editor is insufficient... it simply does not truly allow you to change an entire shipset. Rather than lower the quality of my shipsets, I've continued to provide them via the mod. The mod of course has taken on additional life with other content.
So basically... I can't do shipsets "perfectly" on Steam, so I don't. I want GRM to be a extremely high quality package (and it is).
Since I'm not providing my content on Steam, I certainly don't want others to either, doing so, effectively "steals" credit from my work. Even if you credit me directly, (which the afore mentioned user has not) you are effectively "smuggling" material to an audience that should be going to GRM directly. By uploading (some would say stealing) my work, you take away my voice. My ability to present GRM as professionally as possible is seriously diminished by such activity. If the fleet editor is ever fully operational, I'll certainly consider uploading GRM Shipsets myself to Steam.
Regarding the situation, I have left comments for the User in question to cease and desist. I'm hopeful that they will respond in the next day or so, and I can resolve the issue amicably. If not, I will report the user, file DMCA report, and be a nuisance for the rest of time.
If you'd like to do me a favor, post a comment on the material stating to the effect "this isn't yours, please remove it", please be polite and professional, as most of these issues are born of ignorance, not malice.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
