I’m a mod author with a long experience in role playing games. I’ve played and dungeon mastered Grayhawk by Gary Gygax, and Call of Cthulhu. I do not consider computer games to be on par with real RPGs because they can’t capture the feeling of storytelling between friends. Exceptions such as Ultima Underworld or Fallout (up to New Vegas) do retain the element of role playing choice however, and modding can also retain the element of creative contribution. I’ve modded several aspects of Skyrim and New Vegas and my experience in modding sums up to this: modding should be free and enjoyable. By “free” I don’t mean that mods should be considered a public domain, but rather that copyright law should be used to ensure that freedom is propagated.
I've been asked this question for the 10th time, so I better post a public answer. Yes, I moved Vanilla UI Plus to ModDB during the Fall of 2017 for the following reasons:
My first consideration for relocation was Arthmoor’s site, AFKmods. It would provide a more sensible TOS than ModDB, but it didn’t have a New Vegas category. I didn’t realize that I could contact Arthmoor and ask him to create one. It’s actually a great option, despite being relatively unknown, and definitely great for pluralism and competition.
In the end, this is what is about: competition is the only way to prevent behaviors that benefit the site owners but harm the modding scene in general.
