Map Protecting

Hi, i have little trouble with unauthorized map "upgrading". Its okay when person use my map and make own edition "Edit by XXX" but some person just edit my "const" and release it as official new version.. without any info about new author and edited. I was working hard to balance things, but this f**ker could easily ruin opinion of my map and players will not trust in my any new versions. Ill just do my work and dont bother it, but im kinda disspointed how easily people can do that. Sorry for bad lang, im mad had to release it.

Re: Map Protecting

I agree the problem is bigger than suspected. May I ask how many of those updates were made by you?

Re: Map Protecting

Release it on forum as well and keep it updated here (maybe the most major releases of map, not all of them). Players shouldn't rely only on lobby sending feature. Forum should be one of the most reliable sources to get a map and players should get used to it imo.

I agree.
