Savidge And I (Scare_Tuning) Will be telling you about Copyrights, Stolen Cars parts what’s going to happen.

First of all this is a very important topic. This may be long to read but I can Not stress enough how important this is, whether you want to tune a car, edit it in any way, release someone else’s car on your or somebody else’s site. Please Read on.

My (Scare_Tuning) Information and thoughts to this:

Well I tune cars myself…
And I never stole one part or car.
Every car I ever made has been released without exception, and yet I still see people uploading cars with stolen parts on them, or even stolen cars. Sometimes the cars don’t even get changed.
When I email these people I always get stupid excuses E.G:Oh I couldn’t get through to the author, I added credits I didn’t know I had to ask.. and so many more.
Look go to my site.. you will find some fords, Audis etc there.
Well on the 2 fords I couldn’t find the author (that’s ok I can understand that) but if you checked my read me back then I said, who ever is the original author please contact me.. I will add you to the credits or remove this car from every site it has been posted to.
Now Kevin Wolfe (author of the cars and owner of Aussie Muscles Website) contacted me about 2 weeks later and informed me that they were his cars.. I apologized and added credits. I would have removed the car if he requested it.. After all it was his hard work that made that car possible. Now if you have anything similar happen please try your hardest to find the author. If you cant, do what I did. If you can’t contact the author (he doesn’t respond to emails) bad luck.You have to keep it to yourself.Now if you cant remember the author or and you cant find a readme with an email adress or any sort of name to the author you can post it but say that the author should contact you.Now but dont think well be dumb enough to buy it if it is a stolen car and it was obvious that you asked but never got a response or just didnt bother, or look hard enough.Be wraned try to fool us and we will ban you from this website, and any other that your car is seen on. If he doesn’t give an email address that means.. Sorry bro can’t have it in other words don’t tune and release my car.

My (Savidge) Thoughts to this:

Stealing cars and parts becomes a bigger topic every day. I am admin here since one week and found about 4 uploaded cars with no permission from the original author.
To make one thing clear: Always ask the original author for permission if you modify or convert a car. If he doesn’t respond, please keep the car for yourself, only crediting him is not enough. And if he says no, please take it as a no. I made this experience that I have said no, as someone wanted to convert one of my cars I said no, but I found it one week later on a EVO4X4 site, with no credits of course.

Many great car designers have already quitt because of things like that. Do you really want that this trend continues?


Car designers, webmasters, if you tune or create cars from scratch please post a comment. We want this to go through the nfs community, also post this on your site, we want everyone to know that they can tune cars etc. if only they keep within the rights!!!

Today NFSCars passed the 25,000 comments on cars. This is a huge number (and shows an average of over 10 comments/car), thats why I think its nice to let everyone know.

This function has contributed to the success of NFSCars and is widely appreciated. A lot of other sites followed this example and made it a standard feature on most sites.

The level of the comments is not always of a high level, but NFSCars would not be the same without the comments section.

Thanks to everyone for posting comments, and remember to follow the rules of commenting always!

The releasedates have also somewhat changed:
PS2: September 5
XBox: October 10
GameCube: October 17
PC: October 24

After a long time of absence the tools section (previously downloads) is back, and a lot better than before.

It has its own upload system, where you visitors can upload tools to. It works the same as the cars & pictures upload system, so it shouldnt be hard to work with.

At the moment there are not many tools available as you see, thats because the previous downloads were lost during one of the moves.

Please help me restore this section of the site as soon as possible, so NFSCars will be the best source for tools too! If it works out, I might add a tracks section as well!!!

NFS Streetdogs posted some new screenshots of NFS:Hot Pursuit 2, from both the PC and the PS2 version. There is also a movie of 4 players with 4 cars.

Links:
- PS2 screens
- PC screens

Thanks El Barto Simpson (NFS Streetdogs webmaster) for reporting this.

The people over at our affiliate site ND4SPDWorld have received information from EA regarding the release dates of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 (also known as NFS6)!

Update: the dates for all versions have been announced now:
05 September 2002 - Playstation 2
26 September 2002 - Xbox
24 October 2002 - PC CDROM
24 October 2002 - Nintendo Gamecube

It took us quite some time, but NFSCars is finally back on a new server! This server is twice as powerful as the old one and it should also be more reliable. It also has way more capacity.

Sorry for the inconvenience of the downtime, we hope everyone enjoyed the other NFS sites while NFSCars was down.

Offcourse, we hope this will be the last time NFSCars is down for a longer period.

Update: There were a number of errors after the site came back online. All errors I found have been fixed now, if you get an error somewhere, please let me know!

Although NFSCars has quite a lot of affiliates already, meaning that not many sites will get accepted, we do have a new affiliate today: DriftX

The reason why it is accepted, is that the site has an original subject: drifting. It covers drifting in NFS, but also lots of other games.

The site itself is not up yet, but their messageboard is, so go take a look at DriftX!!!
