The amount of people who blatantly use vehicles without permission on FiveM seems to grow every day. It’s insane how many people just take what they want, regardless of the amount of time and effort people put into vehicles. And most of them never credit anyone.
I think that FiveM needs to crack down on this. It’s unfair and disrespectful to all the vehicle authors who put hundreds of hours into selflessly making assets and vehicles for people to use in singleplayer, which are then taken by servers, without any sort of crediting or asking.
Permission should be required if the mod author states “this vehicle may not be used on a FiveM server without permission” or similar.
Credit should always be given, regardless of circumstances. This can include crediting via a Google Sheets spreadsheet, a list of names in the TS3/Discord server for that server, etc.
Either way, more should be done to let vehicle creators know that their time and effort is appreciated.
