    Mod-game groups...good or bad?

    Well, the reason I ask this question is because since I posted my CV on the 'artists looking for work' page I have recieved a few invitations to join mod groups. I have no experience with these and I just wanted to ask, Has anyone had experience in one here? Are they a good or bad thing to join?

    I want experience and am willing to do unpaid work to gain knowledge, but am just worried about what exactly my rights will be when handing my artwork to other people. I mean I like to copywrite my work, but is this possible in a mod? Maybe I'm just being totally paranoid, thats why I am asking you guys for some enlightenment on the subject!

    I did a teeny bit with a Mod group before...it's fun...and the guys I was with were more than happy to credit me for what I did.
    It's a good experience...I'd go for it.

    Mods are a great way to have fun and gain experience. Unless they make you sign some sort of contract that says you waive rights to your work or something, then it will remain your property. I cant imagine you not getting credit for your work.

    One piece of advice would be to join a mod team that is fairly professional. About 90% of mod teams never even get to a playable alpha. Most are pure crap. Look at their work and find a good team that needs help. The best teams to join arent ones that are just starting out, but ones that have already got a lot of work done.

    words of gold.


    also ask the team before joining what there policy is. Every mod team ive worked with has been great fun, and they never had a problem with crediting work to me. Also dont join a team that is too far along or you wont have anything to do.
