[Advice] A known modder ripped off entire class files from my mod


Vertice

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm Vertice (aka Rodol) the developer of Rival Rebels

I'm looking for some advice here, or to know what are my options. Yesterday I learnt and then confirmed that 4 of my class files that I developed and included in Rival Rebels version 1.4.7 are now present on another mod v. 1.5.2.  And when I compared them they where exact matches of my original code. Even two classes that I called Vertice, my profile name here. The other two are the ones that really concern me, the plasma cannon projectile render.

So to make it short, this person even copied parts of the code that were left overs. And when I contacted him, he refuses to remove my code. Saying that as far as he is concerned his mod is older than mine...

 

So please, let me know what are my options, I feel very bad because of it. And I already gave him the chance to settle this in a cordial manner, but he refuses.

 

Thank you

As SenpaiSubaraki said, it is your code and your copyright.

 

You have plenty of options for recourse. (I am not a lawyer.)

 

If he refuses to remove the code from the mod, you can sue him for quite a bit of money. Tell him that. It's not just an empty threat; you can find out his real name and location through a variety of means.

 

Besides legal recourse, very few web hosts will host copyright-infringing material. You can get it taken down with a DMCA request (assuming the host is in the US). I don't know where it is hosted, but it is likely that the file host will stop hosting the files, whoever that may be. Just contact whoever hosts the files to get info.

 

Edit: oh yeah, duh, just tell the community who it is that stole the code for now. Real easy, people will boycott that mod and ask for its removal if you present good evidence.

    • im stuck in a problem whit BlockEntities i cannot solve so im trying to work around it but in the less complex way possible  i think is posible to store data to the minecraft world  in older versions people talk about  WordDataSave i dont find anything about it for 1.20.4  i find a tutorial for player capability in 1.19    here is an event      //########## ########## ########## ##########     @SubscribeEvent     public static void onAttachCapabilitiesPlayer(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<Entity> event) {         if(event.getObject() instanceof Player) {             if(!event.getObject().getCapability(PlayerThirstProvider.PLAYER_THIRST).isPresent()) {                 event.addCapability(new ResourceLocation(mercmod.MOD_ID, "properties"), new PlayerThirstProvider());             }         }     }  soo i made this      //########## ########## ########## ##########     @SubscribeEvent     public static void onAttachCapabilitiesLevel(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<Level> event) {     } i think i can do some witchcraft  here  but is many things don't understand  to start whit i dont get yet how to recall the saved data from a BlockEntity  the handler still in progress the plan is to make a Map to store nbt data using the block coordinates as index later store that map as a big nbt      ########## any way the question is if theres alredy a tutorial for 1.20.4 for this ?? or some alredy working code from someone else doing something similar ?           
    • I tried this, and found out that Oculus is the mod that is crashing the game. I have removed it, and it now works fine! Thanks!
    • Hi @DanielderErbauer, I arrived here as I have the "as it does not exist in Block{minecraft:air}" error in a modpack I am trying to start. It's a long-shot, I know, but as the post that led this to being solved is missing, can I ask if you may recall what it said? Thanks in advance
    • Hm yeah sorry, not seeing anything else that's sticking out, I'd need to debug myself probably. Do you have a github or bitbucket repo? I could poke around when I have time to see what the problem might be.
    • looking around for the capabilities thing i found a piece of code and find this piece of code  //########## ########## ########## ########## @SubscribeEvent public static void addCustomTrades(VillagerTradesEvent event) { if(event.getType() == VillagerProfession.FLETCHER) { System.out.println("\n\n### VillagerProfession.FLETCHER \n\n");//<----------- Int2ObjectMap<List<VillagerTrades.ItemListing>> trades = event.getTrades(); ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(ItemInit.ARROW_STEEL.get(), 16); int villagerLevel = 1; trades.get(villagerLevel).add((trader, rand) -> new MerchantOffer( new ItemStack(Items.EMERALD, 2), stack,1,3,0.02F)); } if(event.getType() == VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH) { System.out.println("\n\n### VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH \n\n");//<----------- Int2ObjectMap<List<VillagerTrades.ItemListing>> trades = event.getTrades(); ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(ItemInit.INGOT_STEEL.get(), 1); int villagerLevel = 1; trades.get(villagerLevel).add((trader, rand) -> new MerchantOffer( new ItemStack(Items.EMERALD, 2), stack,10,8,0.02F)); } } //########## ########## ########## ########## the event is aknoledge and execute when the maps load  ### VillagerProfession.FLETCHER  ### VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH  //########## But is not working      is a random piece of code is not working  could it be than this code is old 1.18 and no valid anymore for 1.20.4 or the thing are this numbers  stack,10,8,0.02F));  i dont know what this numbers means    ########## the question is ¿how to add things to the villager traders    thanks for your attention
