Actually no it's still illegal, SCS are just declining to prosecute.
The correct word here is "unlawful". Copyright violation is a civil offense, except for repeated offenses, architectural works and royalties of music and movies, where a default royalty exists and it is automatically enforced by state.

@Kama in short, we are not allowed to make mods with paid DLC content in It, and if we do, we need to create a dependency to that DLC. therefore in order to use it, people need to own that DLC otherwise the mod shall not work. also we are not allowed to add in mods Steam inventory content (the one you gain while playing like loading screens, cabin accessories) and last we are not allowed to make mods that move content from ETS2 to ATS and vice versa.

Dear everyone, we'd like to repeat the rules, restrictions, terms, and conditions, that my colleague @Carthoo at the very beginning of this thread. Recently we've discovered a mod that breaks some of these rules such as putting cracked versions of map expansions data into it, making just these data freely available without any need to provide license keys on Steam.

Such doing is illegal and prohibited and we will need to take formal steps against the author and uploader, which might end up in a not so pretty situation. Please, spread the word that while we love the creativity of our community and we do really love seeing good and nice MODs, there are some limits and bounds no one should cross.

Good Morning,

I´ve asked me, why are some Users loading up Payware DLC to some very bad Mod sites?

This Morning I found again on *removed - stop promoting pirate sites* 3 DLC as free Download. But there are more.
I´ve paid all my DLC for ETS2 and I´m happy to support SCS.

What is to do to stop all these Thieves and their Sites? Not one Administrator prooves the Uploads.
You can upload, what you want.

That what I want to say finally about in this Thread.

can you sell scs trucks after putting mods on it as your own mod to public to make money as i'v see on facebook there is a scs 389 being sold for lot of money i think this is wrong as its an scs truck.

you cant sell any truck, be it from SCS or made by you because yo dont own the rights to the design and the name of said truck, if the company wants they can sue you over misuse of intellectual property

If you see something you think breaks the rules (or the law) on this forum contact a Moderator/use the report button.
If it's on Steam Workshop use the report button.
If it's anywhere else contact SCS directly via their email address or use the PM system.

When in doubt just contact SCS privately so they can look into it.

Ok, I have read almost everything :-) I have a suggestion .... maybe it is worth to put some clear information for modders somewhere. Maybe on wikipedia where there are blender tools, etc. add the "rules for creating mods" tab. I am a beginner modder and to be honest I did some research on the rules. But maybe I don't know how to look. I have a question that after reading this post, I have no answer or I didn't understand something. English is not my first language so foregive me. Each dlc tuning has specific new root objects on the truck that are not visible for players who do not have a DLC. By adding new elements created from scratch to them (other than those with dlc), the root objects become visible to players without dlc but the dlc content is still unavailable. Can these root objects be used or not for modding? I have bought all dlc except paintjobs (just few) and sometimes when creating a new model, e.g. a lamp, I check the name of the root object in the console in the game and because my dlc are enabled i can see all root objects so sometimes i'm confused about which hook is from dlc and which is not. I'm sorry if I messed up something but I really want to feel confident in what I do and I would like to respect the rules and all great work of the entire scs team!!

Regards!

Kris

Truck models are part of the base game, no DLC adds a truck to the game to get new accessory slots so everybody has these slots even if the DLC is not owned by the player
