I’ve been seeing lot’s of “free” assets in the marketplace, but they’re not really free: You’re only allowed to use them on UE4 projects, your users (gamers and modders) are not allowed to modify them, etc. That’s not freedom. And CC-0 and CC-BY assets come to the rescue. See, CC-0 and CC-BY is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech”, not as in “free beer”. Free is a matter of the users’ freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software.
I want, for example, players to be able to mod my UDK game and change the texture, add strange hats to the heads of the models and just play with how the game is made. That’s fun. Therefore, I only use my own assets and assets licensed with CC-0 and CC-BY.
Therefore, I’m creating this thread so we can share truly free assets. I’ll start with two amazing artists: [HR][/HR]
Big on low poly cartoon stuff
AAA realistic assets [HR][/HR]
Also, keep in mind that Freedom != price tag. You can still charge money for your assets and provide a liberal license, like CC-0 or CC-BY. The important stuff is: once the transaction has ended, freedom is guaranteed. So feel free to post items with price tags, as long as they are truly free!
