The Nexus Mots website is known for a lot of custom content for all the fantasy games that motors can upload themselves. But these have now begun to delete some of their works, due to a change of rule coming into effect in August.
Nexus had announced a new policy banning Mots Delete files againThey have already been uploaded. It’s associated with a new “collection” feature that actually makes it easy to download mods’ complete datasheets without interruptions. You also want to avoid using existing file-based mods once the previous data has been removed from the Nexus Mots page.
“Instead of deleting a file permanently, mod editors can now archive it, which means it can be moved to a file archive and not downloaded directly unless specifically requested, e.g. via the API,” it said in a statement about upcoming innovations. Issued by Nexus Mots.
The explanation continues, “This means that when an author archives a file, in most cases it will no longer exist and will be removed from the Files tab, but it can still be downloaded from a package and the metadata (information) about the file is still in the database.”
For many, the idea that their work will become a resounding success that can no longer be eliminated is more of a thorn in their side – perhaps even understandable! As a result, some of them are already circulating their works as far as possible on the safe side. Motors must remove their works by August 5, after which they have no way to do so.
Some content, for example Kingdom Multiples for Kingdom Gum Delivery or Fallout 4, is no longer accessible.
These changes have certainly sparked some debate in the community because on the one hand it allows people to safely download entire mods and on the other hand it robs some motors of their ability to control their own works.
