Looks like ISI have opened up another can of worms after releasing details of their content management system. For the end user it's a dream come true - simply pull components (cars, sounds, tracks, effects etc) from existing mods to create your own. pretty awesome idea - in principle.

but could this be another blow for the long term modding viability of rF2? How many groups will want to put years of work into a mod just to have the components ripped and re-released by other people...

Hopefully ISI have a workable and elegant solution to avoid plagiarism but as usual they've dropped another smell and left it to fester. hahaha

If ISI were smart they could add a function to it where those who want to keep their work as their own... Sort of like copyrighting it, but it would prevent anyone without a password from editing the mod...

Otherwise it's a great idea and if there isn't protection for those modders there will be backlash, long term though I don't think it will cause a shortfall of mods, but there will be more crappy ones...

I hope they consulted leading modders and contributors to rF community before exploring this path...
