copying

Postby Eliot Driessen » Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:46 pm

I find people copying my cars and my ideas. Takemi copied my new BEAST 2 and renamed it to be his/her's :( ! Dream Car Racing should block this from happening. If you find people doing this, please reply.

At first, this bothered me. But over time i got used to it. If the car is good enough, people will remember its original creator. I choose to be happy that someone liked my design. Keep in mind that cars will be remade often due to game limitations.

@Eliot I'm really sorry I copied your car. I had a similar design and got confused. :(

I don't know if blocking a copy is the most ideal system, because it won't stop someone from copying your design in other ways, and it constrains progression of concepts.
I propose adding a "Created by" tag to cars. The first time a car is saved the CreatorID and OriginalCarID is saved with the car, and would be displayed next to the author information as "Created by: Creator", optionally with a link to the original car.
The Created by tag is immutable. If Player A creates car A, and then Player B copies it to car A.b, and then player C copies car A.b to A.c, A.c will still display Player A and car A as the original.
Finally, when a Creator loads a car that is listed as created by them, they have an option of removing the CreatorID and OriginalCarID information, so copied cars will no longer be associated with them.

I have copied some people... but I usually put a shout-out to the original creator in my description, like my "Herbie the Love Bug"

I would be honored if someone decided to copy one of my concepts :mrgreen:

Is anybody upset about my cars lately? I am giving credit to the originals. I really hope the creators like them.

No, you still make the best cars. You just need to rob fort knox to afford them :)
