I've been getting contacted by someone about using the FMS figures for Table Top Simulator. The way this works is that someone (not me) would take the files, put them in Blender, and create 3D models to use on Stream.
My first response was pretty brusque: "No."
Now I'm thinking it over.
And I'm not sure what to think. So I'm bringing it to the group. What do you think? Would this be a good idea? Would this basically be supporting piracy?
Part of my issue is I see Table Top Simulator and other Steam-based board games as quasi- to outright-piracy, so I'm dubious about it. I know you're supposed to own the games, but who does?
On the other hand, the war games hobby is pretty honorable for the most part, so maybe most people actually do own their games. Plus piracy is essentially impossible to stamp out, and its best to just mitigate it where possible. I'd imagine there aren't millions of 14 year old nihilists playing pirated games of Blucher and Empire 3.
Do any of you use Table Top Simulator? Would you have any interest in using the figs on TTS?

Rob- I wouldn't be doing any work for this, someone else volunteered themselves. Not anyone on here I don't think. Also, I don't know why someone would want to use FMS figures on TTS - it definitely doesn't showcase their best features.
