Want to confirm that all of the stuff in this thread is FTU even if it shows up in someone else's mod somewhere.

Most posters will have a note saying whether stuff is free for public/private use or not, or whether you have to contact them or another party for permission first.

But when in doubt, even though the thread itself claims stuff is "free to use", assume you always need permission. It's safe and considerate.  Wink

You don't need to necro old threads.  Contact the authors through PMs. 

In the case of authors who have literally not been back here in years, you might not ever get a reply, but there really aren't many mods worth resurrecting where the original authors aren't still here.

So if I don't get a reply from an author who has posted their sprites as FTU can I just assume permission would be given, or should I just play it safe?

Absolutely not, if you get no reply that is the same as them saying no. Regardless of the circumstances known or unknown.

I disagree with Meso here.

While contacting the original author is usually the best way to avoid issues, the sprites in this thread are free to use unless stated otherwise (like the second part of my own sprite dump). As far as i'm concerned, people don't need to ask my permission to use my free stuff, even though asking first is still safer, just in case.
