Is this a correct installing?
Hi, I don't know if you've already posted your package in the new Steam Workshop in Terraria, but I saw several different accounts posting your package and I don't know if any belong to you, so I wanted to let you know about possible plagiarism.
I'm sure this is going to be happening for at least the first few weeks of v1.4.2, since I had it happen for a few of my texture packs, too. At least it was someone I actually knew from the forums though, and they took the packs down once I had 'em up (I didn't even say anything, so I'm glad that went well).Nope, they are definitely NOT from me. I'll certainly be mentioning it here first once they're going up on the workshop, and my presentation/thumbnails will look A LOT nicer. Haha.
Also I will not be uploading anything anywhere until this pack is fully-updated (which it nearly is... slowly but surely). And wow, three phony uploads to the workshop already just within the first few days. Feel free to report them on there, as I'm assuming this is the only way to get them taken down. I'm doing the same.
Seems a number of other creators have already had their work stolen/wrongfully placed onto this workshop as well... some of them corrupt/incomplete files or mixed into other texture packs without permission. If mine are still up days from now, I probably won't even bother uploading the legit upgraded version there at all, if this workshop is that much of a mess. Not worth the headache of having to explain constantly which versions are real, up to date, etc. People have the right to know what they're actually downloading.
Thank you very much for letting me know about this regardless.
I know what your talking about, usually when i search something, Like when i search "All items", i see one original pack, and then i see multiple of the same pack, just without images.A few things.
1. Copycats are going to happen. Trust me, its like fake merch or piracy... you can slap some down, but more will show back up. Like roaches.
(to give you a sense... I personally hand-ban... maybe 60-75 PER DAY)
2. I have been banning the ones I see and KNOW are fakes (but I am not omniscient, so if I miss something, just let me know - PM here is fine)
3. Valve mods also handle reports, and clear them out regularly - but they do not seem to care/deal with possible copycats... so sometimes reports on the WS itself get cleared out and I never see them.
4. Don't let that discourage you from getting the REAL ones up there. Over time, with slapping down the fakes and the real ones getting subs and ratings, the cream will rise to the top.
