I have been browsing 5Mods for quite a while now and used it for all kinds of Singleplayer Modifications, its intended Purpose. And it is generally a great experience if you stay with soley Singleplayer Modding. But, problems start to arise when trying to do anything related to Multiplayer (say FiveM), modifications of Prexisting Content and so on.
Often it is the case that the Author states no License. It can become quite tedious to Message Authors for a single Mod and wait for an answer that may never come. This just adds up.
A License System, like the one from Github would be very Beneficial to the Sites Content Creators and Users.
Here is how I would Imagine it:
A The Content Creator can chose from a set of predefined Licenses like MIT or GPL 3.0
B There are set Parameters the Content Creator can Chose to enable or disable (example):
- Usage on Multiplayer Services like FiveM (Yes/No/WithConsent)
- Modifying and Reuploding (Yes/No/WithCredits/WithConsent...)
- And so on.....
This could greatly make the Communication between Creator and User more clear, as to now the User knows exactly what he can and can not do (something that was previously a bit unclear).
I hope this gets at least reviewed, because I am a bit frustrated about it (Trying to search for Cars for my FiveM Server).
