I don't know where else to put this as this is not just for Chucklefish games... this applies to any game that allows for modding. i wanna know if its generally acceptable or generally frowned upon to do this when modding. is it fine for people to look at other peoples mods and recreate parts of it... mostly for learning. i don't mean copy and paste bits of code or scripts then use that. i mean look at it and remake it. rewrite it and edit the rewrite. only look at the original. kinda like looking at a well known piece of art...and trying to draw it WITHOUT tracing. the reason i ask...is because i learn best from example. i am not sure if it goes against modding ethics or not to use other peoples stuff as a learning tool. i have an idea for a mod in mind...and some of that mod has ideas that functions in another mod. i don't know how to make those things work...and i want to learn how to do it. another example is taking apart a clock (and having basic understanding of how it works) and learning first hand how it works. and then trying to make a new clock from scratch using only new parts and what you learned from taking apart the clock.
