Possible tip against piracy

Post by PerrydPelle » April 10th, 2020, 7:42 pm

Sadly piracy is a big problem in the ETS2/ATS community, but I might have found a way to minimise it. I have noticed that my IL-RL open border mod has not been pirated, not the old, not the new one, I think this is because I didn’t provide any screenshots in the first post, and uploading to those dodgy sites requires at least 5 screenshots, which the thieves get from the first post, I have now put 5 screenshots in all my IL-RL border topics, and if they get pirated now, then we know that there is a solution, don’t include screenshots.

And I was right, now that I provided five screenshots, it got pirated http://www.ets2world.com/promods-v2-45- ... v2-0-ets2/ So, for anyone who wants to upload a mod in the future, DONT provide any screenshots!

I wouldn’t be surprised if those pirates don’t even play ETS2 or ATS, and if they do, they probably pirated it
