    Hello every one I'm here today to talk about the biggest tf2 mystery ever the bulletcrops pack now if no one knows what the bulletcrops is it is a big tf2 content pack that is pretty old now why I'm talking about this you might say well the reason why is cause no one knows who the creators of the pack and right now you might be saying well that's weird by why are you talking about this well since no one knows the creators of the pack there is no one to credit so if your map gets added into the game you can't use the bulletcrops assets that is why sunshine got new assets when it got added into the game.

    Tell me your theories on who you think could of created the pack it can be anyone my theory is that the secret organize known as modelers made the pack am of course talking about rexy and acumen but that is just my throry.the joke about the modelers is suppose to be taking as a joke.

    We know exactly who the pack's contributors are - the credits are right there on the site. The problem is that the list of who made what has been lost, so it's impossible to credit any of them for individual assets.

    So if I use the entire pack there won't be a problem since I can just credit everyone involved?

    Without being able to contact the creators of specific assets being used in the map, it isn't possible to give them a split of the money the map makes, which is (in most cases) a breach of copyright. Getting people to make new assets ensures that they can be properly licensed.

    (fun fact: some ladders disappeared from Byre when it went official because of this exact problem)

    It's not really that contacting the authors of the bulletcrops assets was impossible, it's just that creating new assets was just easier and probably a safer bet. Also, the lowest cut you can make in the map revenue share is 1% which sounds like not a lot, but really, if you're using just one asset, that asset becomes pretty expensive (especially when you can just make those assets yourself).
