Re-posting Vehicles

Postby tyal34345 » Wed Oct 28, 2015 10:22 pm

You shouldn't be able to re-post other peoples vehicles because then you see the same thing over and over again. Also When people use the same vehicle for multiple posts. I see all the time people will just move the suspension or make one or two subtle changes and post it as a new vehicle with a different name.

I have to disagree. Often, the best change someone can make is moving the suspension or subtle changes to the spring hardness or other adjustables. I think the benefits of editing and reposting other people's cars far outweigh the problem of a few duplicated cars. Also, it should be noted that many duplicates are posted by the original creator modifying their own design, not other people reposting.

Several times I see one version of a car and then they will be lazy and just stretch the suspension downward and call it a truck.

Reposting the same exact car is sometimes useful, for me at least, because lost track of the original version, so I repost what I think is a good one. And as far as making changes, technically it IS then a different car, and the changes are what make the others different than the first (or second or third or whatever).
