Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Would it be illegal if I made models for my game out of standard office supplies but they resembled famous ships like the starship enterprise, or the X wing?

Using recognizable objects from other media in a commercial project would risk infringing the copyrights associated with those images and objects. Best to create original stuff.

Okay but how about if we gave everyone goatees too. Obviously this won't work for Star Trek.

To expand on this: is being evil substantially different from being good?
