Hello trainz community,

What permissions do you need to release a reskin of built-in content?

You need to seek out the original author and ask permission from them.

Read the ELUA or sometimes people write the license agreement in the description of the asset.

What about the UP big boy? It doesn't have an eula or licence.

If it has one that permits reskinning you may take it as permission to reskin. If it doesn't then you need to ask.

Just for the sake of curiosity, WHO created the Trainz Big Boy?

This would be Rob Shaw and he works for N3V.

To release something, usually you need the author's permission. If you want to reskin it for personal use only, you can do whatever to it, so long as it doesn't leave your own computer.

Does Rob Shaw even still work at N3V? (He was one of the original Brew Crew). If it's built in content then it's likely to be N3V who would need to give permission, or if Rob is no longer about.

i am going to tell you about a young kid on trainz his name was gramma he reskined and released stuff on the DLS until he went too far he copied some guys V30 VR garrat and the creator saw this and then started a thread here its called "we have a copyist posting content to the DLS thats not theirs" gramma got all his content taken down and he is probably banned he did not know he needed permission to release stuff so he learned about getting permission the hard way
