Hi guys,
I have been skinning locos now for a few weeks and I am getting to grips with it it pretty fast. I have only one question. Am I allowed to re-skin assets that I didn't make? For example I have skinned DomSartos GM 141 Class loco to a fictional paint job as now seen on the freight 071 Class Loco in Ireland but am I allowed to do that even tho I wont be releasing them as I would not have the permissions, but are we allowed to re-skin for personal use. Sorry if this question has been answered else where, I had a look on forum but could not find anything related.

I appreciate that you're new to Trainz - but with no disrespect, saying you've re-skinned something - but then asking whether you're allowed to is a bit like stealing something from a shop and then going back a day later and asking the shop whether you really needed to pay for it. The correct way of doing it is asking BEFORE you re-skin.

However, to answer your question, in each item, you'll find a config file. In the config file, you'll find a tag that lists whether you can re-skin or not. Generally speaking, if there's nothing in the config file stating, then that's considered that no permission is given. If it says you can re-skin - then go for it. Some say you can re-skin as long as its for personal use only. Some say no fictional liveries (to prevent ghastly flourescent pink with green stripes and brown spot liveries - and yes, there are people that do those liveries! lol). The config file is your friend.

If in doubt, make a note of the item's author - and look on here or the Auran forum. Most creators are active on one of those forums - for example, Domsarto posts on here from time to time. Send them a PM - and wait for a reply. Job done.

I find that most of the time, if you show an author some respect by asking first, they usually agree to it. If you annoy them by re-skinning their work without asking, and then asking afterwards, it goes down like a lead balloon (and rightly so).

Basically, be polite and treat authors and their work with respect - and they'll generally be quite helpful back.

Thanks for getting back to me. Yea I kind of thought that last night after I had posted this that maybe I should have approached it a bit different, infact the way you have just mentioned. I'll take the advice on board and ask in future

If those reskins go against the authors permission to allow reskins then it's bad enough they have been done let alone re-distributing someone elses work without permission.

If the reskins have been allowed by the original author it doesn't necessarily mean they can be distributed as stated above
