Regarding Builds Including My Content As a Patreon Exclusive

I didn’t think I would need to state this because my stance on paywalls and pay-per-click shorteners are pretty obvious, but it is not ok
You are locking my content behind a paywall so you are effectively claiming the content as your own and making money off my blood, sweat and tears. I honestly don’t care that you ‘put work into the house’ or ‘it’s more convenient for the downloader’, that doesn’t excuse the fact of what is being done and how disrespectful it is. Lets not even get into the issues of older content being bundled up which can cause people problems, or the fact that people NEVER update older lots including cc with the newer updated versions. It is an accident waiting to happen. And i am not even going to touch on what EA/Maxis has stated in regards to their Terms you agree to when playing TS4. 
My content should be freely available, and the only way that is acceptable when it is bundled in a download is if that build is freely downloadable as well. I say it right in my ToU so don’t act dumb. I even amended it to explicitly list Patreon. Those houses would not be the same without the content i created  so don’t abuse my good nature by being an arse.

  1. Unscrupulous world, it's sad ... You are part of this minority that still shares with great heart, I respect you for that. You must report the stolen contents on Patreon, they have a code to respect. Courage is people are not worth it ...

  3. I feel your annoyance I made free craft cutting files not even adfly and then I found a few people had taken the files removed my name and were selling them didn't even bother to alter them. I spent so much time checking my files were not being sold I gave it up and took down the blog because I didnt want people being charged for free stuff.I haven't modded anything yet I hope to get to it but dont think I could make anything like your beautful creations take heart hun there will always be those who try and spoil it don't let them win

  7. I love your work! I use it in every home I build, but I also give you credit. Unfortunately, I don't know how to create CC, so I use other artists' creations to make my builds beautiful, but as a rule to my own moral code, I give credit because I did NOT make the CC. Keep on keepin' on Peacemaker! You rock!
